EPISODE REVIEWS


Ben Stiller / Alanis Morrissette
October 24, 1998


OPENING:

This was pretty funny, but it didnt seem like there was much thought behind it. I would have much rather seen a political opening.

RATING: 8 out of 10

 

MONOLOGUE:

started out funny, but due to the fact that i hate the Yankees with a pasion, this sucked

RATING: 1 out of 10

 

JEOPARDY:

This is always a funny skit. It was great. Jimmy Fallon is awsome. That Adam Sandler impression was dead on! Tom Cruise wasnt bad, and Sean Conery is always great.

RATING: 9 out of 10

 

PRETTY LIVING:

This always sucks. i dont know why they have this skit re-occur. Its just stupid. And Hellen Maden is plain old dumb.

RATING: 5 out of 10

 

TV FUNHOUSE:

Hete roy, was pretty dumb. I hope we dont have to see this one any more. Gay duo is much better.

RATING: 6 out of 10

 

ALLANIS MORRISETTE: (Or however you spell it)

Dont really like...didnt really watch.. kind of early in the show....

 

WEEKEND UPDATE:

Another funny WU. Jimmy Fallon is the man! I hope he starts to appear more on the show.

RATING: 8 out of 10

 

HORNY COUPLE:

This was great on the Mathew Boderick episode, but this time it was almost exactly the same. It was still funny though.

RATING: 7out of 10

 

ALANNISSS MOREISETTE... (OR WHATEVER)

AGAIN? I dont like this one bit.......i hope this two song thing isnt permenate...

 

HIGHWAY PATROL:

verry funny! Now this is the kind of skit snl needs more of. I liked this one because it is different. (it wasnt a: talk show, public access show, game show, etc.)

RATING: 8 out of 10

 

30 YR. OLD LIVING @ HOME:

This was another great skit. Original and funny.

RATING: 8.5 out of 10

 

STEVE WYNNS HOTEL AND CASINO:

This was ok..i didnt really get it...maybe it was just me..

RATING: 6 out of 10

 

CONGRESSMEN AGAINST BATS:

Once again......i dont get it....is it just me?

RATING: 5 out of 10

 

OVERALL:

I thought it was a pretty decent show. SNL desperatly needs to come up with some fresh skits. I think that in the next few weeks jimmy fallon, horratio sans, and chris parnell, might start to shine through. i think they are pretty good.

There were no commercial parodies in it though.......

Where was Tracy morgan?
