EPISODE REVIEWS


Gwyneth Paltrow / Barenaked Ladies
February 6, 1999


[OPENING] Clinton won't gloat

This one was alot funnier than most of the clinton skits, this one might actually be the best so far. all of it was funny, but ana was just standing there. 9

 

[MONOLOGUE] Gwyneth Paltrow

as soon as she took that first question from the audience I was expecting the worst. but it really wasnt so bad. the funniest part was when Ben Affleck goes "dont pull a minnie driver on me". 8

 

[SKETCH] E!'s impeachment coverage

It was funny for a little while, but I know I've seen the exact same andy dick impression somewhere else. I think it got worse near the
end. 7

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 promo: Joan Jett

I dont know, this one I was waiting for it to get funny, but it really didnt 6

 

[SKETCH] Mary Katherine Gallagher tries to join Black Angels

this is the funniest mkg sketch for a long time. of course you knew she was gonna dive into something and do a monologue, but the monologue was funny, and the sketch for once was actually funny. so it was an improvment 8

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 promo: John OatesI've always hated oates for some reason. but it was funny, and chris just looked.....funny....man i'm running out of words. 8

 

[SKETCH] Mindy & Sky sing

This was funny just because of gwenyth, and thats a good thing. "the rainforests saw the deeeeeevvuuuuuuuhhhhllll!!!" 9

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] X-Presidents

This one was alot more edgy than most of the other x-presidents. the george bush getting it on with barbara is always funny. 8

 

[COMMERCIAL] Staten Island Nurses

I thought it would be alot worse. but it wasn't really that bad 6

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

it was standard weekend update fare, colin screwed up twice. (jesus in the 1800's, the wrong picture in back of him) but the whole musical number came out of nowhere and saved it. 8

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Barenaked Ladies

There really wasnt anything special about this one. i dont really like them that much. 6

 

[SKETCH] Healey family is full of voices

I kept telling myself "this is going to get old fast" and it kinda did, but it was still a tad bit funny. the horatio thing at the end could have been funnier 7

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 promo: Colin Hay

Jimmy should get more stuff like this. This was stupid but pretty damn funny. 8

 

[SKETCH] Biography

I hope they do this more, but apparently he got fired, well, that didnt stop the Harry Carrey thing. All the stuff in here was funny, especially putting him with manson, and having the iraqi guy going "he then replied 'I like to snif farts". and the spiderman mask thing. it was so stupid. Im still cracking up over the "he brutally murdered Hogan's heroes star....." 10

 

[SKETCH] NBC Nightly News: Political parties can't agree

At least they didnt over do this one. it was funny up til the N'sync thing. but thats where it ended so... 8

 

[COMMERCIAL] Hardcore Rock

it was a funny thing to end the show on. it was cool that she agreed to do that sketch, more guests shouldn't be scared to look ridiculous more often. 9
