EPISODE REVIEWS


Bill Paxton / Beck
January 9, 1999


[OPENING] Gingrich & Livingston at Mac's Bar

This wasn't bad. I liked how Will kept asking "what the hell happened?" I give this one a 6.5 out of 10

 

[MONOLOGUE] Bill Paxton

I didn't like this. It wasn't that funny and was pretty stupid. 4.5 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] The View

Hysterical. The real Debbie coming out was a nice touch. This was one of the betters skits of the night. 8.5 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] The Kulps at an airport

This was ok. Ana and Will were funny as usual but this didn't seem to make me laugh though. 6 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] 'Titanic' Lost Ending

 

This was funny. I loved the Pizza Hut line from Molly. I love anything that makes fun of Titanic. 8 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] VH1 Behind the Music: Fat Albert

This was really good. Tracy's Albert was very good. Everything about this skit was good. 8.5 out of 10

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

This was another pretty good but not excellent weekend update. Colin did a pretty good job with a good number of the jokes. Ana's Elizabeth Dole was the highlight of the show. 7.5 out of 10

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Beck

Beck is always great. 10 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Newsforce

This was pretty dull. I didn't laugh at all. 3 out of 10

 

[COMMERCIAL] KCF Shredders

This was pretty good the first time and it was still pretty funny this time. Jimmy was hysterical as the spokesperson. 7 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Favorite mail (male) service

This is a very interesting idea. It was a pretty good skit. 6.5 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Fantastic Voyage

This was alright. 6 out of 10

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Beck

Even better than the first song. 10 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Extreme Hunting

This was very funny. I loved Prince coming on. Chris did an excellent impersonation. 8 out of 10

 

Overall - This episode was pretty funny. It wasn't horrible and it wasn't the best ever. The epsiode was overall a pretty funny show. 7 out of 10
