James Van Der Beek / Everlast
January 16, 1999
[OPENING] Clinton meets Flynt:
This was Great! Horatio's Impression of Larry Flynt is great. I liked the line " I do have sexual relations with the women" . It's kinda cool to see featured players open the show lately too.
[MONOLOGUE] James Van Der Beek:
This wasn't that bad. Darrell doesn't sound too much like Pardo though. " Wont you let an Old man take care of you?"
[COMMERCIAL] Teeny Weenies:
This was awful.
[SKETCH] National Spelling Bee Finals:
This was pretty good. Reminded me of the "Wake Up and Smile" sketch from the 95-96 season,when the Cue Card Machine broke.. except this wasn't as insane.
[COMMERCIAL] 'Cats' on home video:
This was great! Pre-taped Sketchs that arn't Short Parodys usally are better. Darrell did a pretty good Andrew Lloyd Webber impression. Chris Parnell was good too." You know my Parents think I'm gay, Thanks Cats. "
[SKETCH] Teen Pulse: 7 Degrees Celsius:
What was the joke? The 2 Songs wern't even funny.. The only Semi-funny Character was Will Ferrell's.
[SKETCH] Dog Show:
Why is the Bad Sketches always get shown over and over again. Not Funny then, not Funny now.
[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn:
Funny .. The one week I think Colin was funny everyone else seems to think it wasn't one of his good weeks. The Brian Fellow guy was funny too. Male Version of Star Jones ; )
[MUSICAL GUEST] Everlast:
So Thats what happen to the House of Pain..
[SKETCH] Harry Connick Jr. teased with laser pen:
This reminds me of when I go to the Movie Theater and there are always a group of idiots in the back row with about 4-5 laser pens. I have to say the nipples idea was pretty clever. I liked the Cindy Crawford reference. It should have showed alittle footage of the 2 wiseguys at the Nicole Kidman play.
[SKETCH] History Channel's The War Abroad and at Home:
My question is, why would the History Channel play this ?
[SKETCH] NBC exec creates Frankenteen:
Where's Tim been the rest of the show... I only give this one points for Tim Meadows' sarcastic character.
[SKETCH] Maria works her magic on Anthony:
I was never really a fan of this character, but the Back-Cracking was alittle funny, Sorta creepy though.
That's All Folks!
