EPISODE REVIEWS


Brendan Fraser / Busta Rhymes
February 13, 1999


[OPENING] NBC Special Report: Tripp interview

John Goodman was great. The Tom Brokaw impression is always funny. A

 

[MONOLOGUE] Brendan Fraser

This was kind of pointless, although the rats were humerous. B

 

[COMMERCIAL] Bio Flex

Nothing special here. B-

 

[SKETCH] Judge Judy

This one was OK. Was Brendan actually inhaling helium to get that weird voice? We may never know . . . B

 

[SKETCH] "Just enjoy the Ozzie and keep your mouth shut"

This one was funny. Horatio's Ozzy was great. A

 

[SKETCH] Zimmermans workout at Hard Bodies

Liked this one, too. A

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio (Poetry of Jewel)

Not being a fan of animated films, these Funhouse clips surpise me because they are so funny. This one was great. A

 

[SKETCH] You're a Champion Charlie Brown

This was the most horrible sketch I've ever seen. If I wanted to see someone vomit, I would watch ER. Terrible. Just awful. F-

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

Colin is the man. He seems to be taking people's advise, and just letting go of the jokes that bomb. Also, did his hair seem darker than usual? Or is it just my TV needs adjustment? They seem to be trying to find a character for Tracy that will click for WU. They should keep trying. Jimmy did a great job, too. A

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes

They do what they do very well, unfortunately, I don't care for what they do. C

 

[SKETCH] Two Fat Ladies

Disgusting. The idea was good, but the presentation lacked something. C

 

[SKETCH] Old Navy lady abuses escort

This one started off promising, but quickly lost it. At least the dog had enough sense to get out before it fell apart. The ending was lame. C+

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes

Same as above.
