EPISODE REVIEWS


Heather Graham / Marc Anthony
October 16, 1999


[OPENING] Al Gore and George W. Bush create Al W. Bush Gore

At the beginning, I thought it was neat that Darrell potrayed two people, even though I know the part where he played President Clinton was pretaped. I liked Horatio as Al W. Bush Gore with the double-colored jacket and hair. This was even better than that Ross Perot one two weeks ago.

Grade: A-

 

[MONOLOGUE] Heather Graham

I knew she was going to have help from cast members in her monologue. But this was actually pretty damn funny!! The part with Chris Parnell and his little "present".

Grade: B+

 

[COMMERCIAL] Litter Critters

This was another good commercial parody. I hope they don't run out of ideas before the seasons over and have to rerun these commercials. They are still kind of funny the second time, but if you saw it originally, you know what to expect and you don't find it that funny.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] The Zimmermans

This hasn't always been my favorite sketch but this was pretty decent. I liked when Heather was trying to get Will to do the sex routines that Cheri and Chris did.

Grade: B

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] October 23, 1999 Norm MacDonald / Dr. Dre

I'm predicting that this will be the best show of the year. Norm is the man!! I hope they let him do Weekend Update just one more time next week.

[SKETCH] The Ladies' Man

Glad to see Leon Phelps back. But I liked his other afro better. This bigger one just didn't look as good. The best part was when Leon started crying.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Hans and Franz: Where Are They Now?

I think this was supposed to be on last week's show because at the end of it I saw a credit for "Hans and Franz: Where Are They Now?" and I thought, 'They never aired that sketch.' This was really funny especially the 'Pummela' act and the buttox reading.

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] NetAid

My favorite part was Tracy playing Busta Rhymes. That was hilarious!!! The dance was really very funny. The whole sketch was decent, too. Yet another impression for Jimmy [playing David Bowie].

Grade: A-

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

I liked the Ellen DeGeneres and Ann Heche joke. The commentary by the six-year-old wasn't too funny. Colin just insulted her the entire time. Horatio and Colin's Latin mini-sketch was funny. I was cracking up just looking at Horatio in that wig.

Grade: B+

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Marc Anthony

I am so sick of this song.

Grade: D-

 

[SKETCH] Dog Show

This used to be funny, but, to tell you the truth, its too predictable now. Mr. Bojangles is really the only funny part on it now.

Grade: C-

 

[SKETCH] The SNL and "The Blair Witch Project" Spoof Foundation

This was really funny for a late-in-the-show sketch. The little black kid was funny.

Grade: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Marc Anthony

He doesn't deserve two songs.

Grade: D-

 

[SKETCH] Couple and babysitter have three-way

This was really boring, but hey, its the last sketch. What do you expect? Heather Graham is one foxy lady.

Grade: D

 

[OVERALL] A very good show. I just hope they bring back the Spartans or the Roxbury Guys soon. I miss them. I just can not wait another week for Norm MacDonald!!!! That is gonna be one kick-ass show.

Overall Grade: B-
