EPISODE REVIEWS


Sarah Michelle Gellar / Backstreet Boys
May 15, 1999


[Pre-Episode Thoughts] When I found out Sarah Michelle Ghellar would be the host and the BackStreet Boys would be musical guests I cussed to myself. How much teenybopper can you get? I never watch Buffy and I hate BSBs so I wasn't expecting much. I would've much rather seen Mike Myers or Adam Sandler host.

 

[OPENING] Marty and Bobbie Culp at graduation party
I don't really like this scetch, I'm sorry. It's always the same boring thing and I rarely laugh, so not much here...
MY GRADE: D

 

[MONOLOGUE] Sarah Michelle Gellar
This was good! She is really beuatiful, I must admit and she wasn't ditzy like Jenifer Love Hewitt was. I love when Tim wears Detriot stuff! I like when stars acnowledge their roots.
MY GRADE: A-

 

[SKETCH] The Tiger Beat Ultra Super Duper Dreamy Love Show
Wow...! Want to talk about ditz! It's always funny when SNL makes fun of teens and my friend loves Seth Green and when he had his cameo, she went apeshit. How they had the "touchy" manager and his clients was great.
MY GRADE: A

 

[SKETCH] Sex-crazed couple can't rent cabin
The Zimmermans are so funny! The whole thing about the beaver.....and just think how much Cheri and Chris have to rehearse this!
MY GRADE: A-

 

[SKETCH] Little League parent takes game seriously
Oh Will...what a funny guy. Just a typical Will Ferril skit. Always entertaining.
MY GRADE: B

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Unsold Cartoon Pilot Shack: The Ginsburg Gang
I didn't get this...but it was funny anyway. So was that the very last Cartoon by Smigil we will see on SNL??
MY GRADE: B-

 

[SKETCH] MTV's Shame Attack
The Blame Game is the stupidest show I've ever seen in my life. The sad part is how much the skit is really like the show! Chris Kattan.....what a guy...
MY GRADE: B+

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Backstreet Boys
Girls in my school are obsessed with these boys. WHY???? Dammit someone tell me why. Me and my friends kept on making fun of the one with a leapord hat. Ha...ha..
MY GRADE: D-

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn
Uh....some things were funny but it was just a usual Weekend update.
MY GRADE: C+

 

[SKETCH] Channel 5's Sunday Matinee: Dusty's Love
WARPED! Weird as hell and scary! The writers must have been sucking on the bong writing this one. It made me feel a combination of queasy and laughing.
MY GRADE: B

 

[SKETCH] Backstage at Nick Kid's Choice Awards
Horatio does a good Rosie! I love the kids asking Eminem if he was black. I love when SNL makes fun of teenyboppers! DO it more often!
MY GRADE: A

 

[COMMERCIAL] Holding Your Own Boobs Magazine
Where did this come from? craaaaazy. Did anyone catch the magazine saying,"Dolly Parton's 4 hand boob hold?"
MY GRADE: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Backstreet Boys
They were on again?!!!?...that song is annoying! My friends liked it though....weirdos. And the dude was still sporting the hat! HA HA!
MY GRADE: D-

 

[SKETCH] Brian Fellow's Safari Planet
Tracy Morgan does a good gay person, you have to admit. This skit needed more, I don't know what....
MY GRADE: C-

 

[Overall] Better than my expectations! I now have more respect for Sarah Michelle Ghellar, but uh...not the BSBs.

[OUTLOOK FOR NEXT SEASON] I'm really going to miss SNL until September. Why do they have to go so soon??? They start late too in Sep. too. I heard next season there will a 5 hour special for the 25th Aniversity! Wow! cAnt' wait for that!
