EPISODE REVIEWS


Bill Murray / Lucinda Williams
February 20, 1999


[PRESHOW THOUGHTS]

God, I hope this show is better than the Gwyneth Paltrow episode.

 

[OPENING] The Ladies' Man

Not one of the better ones, but still had a few good laughs. 3/5

 

[MONOLOGUE]

Extremely funny. The "Footloose" thing was great. 4/5

 

[SKETCH] The Ultra Competitive Couple

Didn't quite like this. Good to see Ferrel a little more, though. 2.5/5

 

[SKETCH] Male Knick's Cheerleaders

Very funny. Kinda sad. Good ending. 3.5/5

 

[COMMERCIAL] Swill Bottled Water

I couldn't stop laughing during the real commercials. I loved the part where he was pouring the water and it came out really slow in goo form and they were playing "Anticipation" by Carly Simon. 5/5

 

[SKETCH/COMMERCIAL] The Quotable Caddyshack

Stinky. Chevy Chase saved it. 1.5/5

 

[SKETCH] Morning Latte

Believe it or not, this is the first "Morning Latte" I've seen. I was supprised. I expected it to suck. 3.5/5

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] w/ Colin Quinn

Almost as good as last weeks. I disagree with Bill Murray on the Oscar picks though. 4.5/5

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Lucinda Williams

Terrible. Just not my kind of music. 1/5

 

[SKETCH] A Bear Ate His Parents

No words can say what I think about this. 5/5

 

[SKETCH] The Third Eye

Caught the end. Nothing special. 2.5/5

 

[SKETCH] Steve Baxter: Hollywood Gynecologist

Gross but funny. Stupid ending. 3/5

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Lucinda Williams

Worse than the first time. 0/5

 

Perfomer of the Night: Chris Parnell
Sketch of the Night: A Bear Ate His Parents
Line of the Night: "I'm glad you asked,because we've got Yin Yang pellets up the Yin Yang." -- Bill Murray; The Third Eye

[OVERALL]

Better than the Gwyneth Paltrow episode. Disappointing. 3/5
