EPISODE REVIEWS


John Goodman / Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
April 10, 1999


[OPENING] Clinton goes back to lying:

I think they could have done alittle better with this.



[MONOLOGUE] John Goodman:

Goodman never even hosted in 91, but anyway, this was an okay monologue.



[SKETCH] Adult Literacy Program:

I liked this sketch. Nobody could do it better than Goodman. Glad to see a
graduated as a Proud, Literate Jackass. Good first book to read too, Monica's
Story.



[COMMERCIAL] Shaun Mondavi Vineyards:

This was my favorite sketch of the night. I liked the Line by Will, "First of
all, don't call me Dad, your 27, and this is the second time I've ever met
you. Second, no, you can't own a Vineyard, your a convicted felon and your
mother told me you have a learning disability. Well guess what Dad? You were
wrong... about some of that stuff." I also thought it was funny how each time
he took a sip of his wine, he'd make a face of disgust.


[COMMERCIAL] CNN Newsstand:

This was pretty funny, especially the thought of CNN doing a show on Bear
Magizine.


[SKETCH] Wrap It Up:

Dispite the audiences reaction to this sketch, I found it to be very funny,
especially for a sketch Chris Kattan starred in. I especially found it funny
when he was wraping Horatio's flower. "Well Special is out Specialty." Good
stuff.


[SKETCH] Hello Dolly:

Check my Kelsey Grammer Review.



[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn:

Colin sucked. Tracy Morgan was hilarious. Collette Reardon sucked.



[MUSICAL GUEST] Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers:

I'm not a Tom Petty fan.


[SKETCH] Santa gets drunk:

This was really bad.



[SKETCH] Happy Smile Patrol:

This was pretty funny. Very unexpected though.



[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Bun E. Carlos:

I don't know why, but since the Rick Allen and Fred Schnieder Behind the Music
Commercial's, I'm starting to find these very funny. This was another good
one! From a "Rock Star" to a guy who collects Bowling shoes. "Pretty cool
being a rock star" -- Bun E. Carlos(Horatio Sanz)



[MUSICAL GUEST] Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers:

Still not a fan of Tom Petty.

 

[SKETCH] Whorehouse's data entry:

I only found Will Ferrell's getty-up in this sketch funny, reminded me of the
character "Machine" from the movie 8MM starring Nicolas Cage.

 

Overall: Not a bad show. Im glad Goodman didn't play Linda Tripp again. That
got tiresome.
