EPISODE REVIEWS


Lucy Lawless / Elliott Smith
October 17, 1998


[OPENING] NBC Special Report: Republicans Plans for the Future

This was real funny. I especially liked how "Tom Brokaw" was lowering his voice every few words or so.

Grade: A

 

[MONOLOGUE] Lucy Lawless

This was kind of boring, and the lesbian questions almost got me to fall asleep. When she mistook the ma'am for a sir, that got me laughing out loud.

Grade: B+

 

[COMMERCIAL] Shirt in a Can

This reflected one of most all of our pet peeves: infomercials. Just plain annoying, but the attractive build part was okay.

Grade: C

 

[SKETCH] Judge Judy

I don't think that many people found this funny. Just plain boring, except for the part when the real Judge Judy came in.

Grade: B-

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] History of Presidential Scandals

Too funny.

Grade: A+

 

[SKETCH] White House in Crisis

The "slumber party" was okay, and it was just too funny when Ana had that retainer.

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio: Saturday Howard Night Stern Live

Just plain stupid.

Grade: F
