EPISODE REVIEWS


Julianna Margulies / DMX
February 12, 2000


[OPENING] A message from Hillary Rodham Clinton

This was definitely one of the season's better sketches, and probably the best of the year [2000, I mean]. Bill walking around in a bathrobe and interrupting Hillary was just hilarious.

Grade: A

 

[MONOLOGUE] Julianna Margulies

The whole hamster thing was really funny, but Noah Wyle's cameo was good, despite it only being 5 seconds.

Grade: B+

 

[COMMERCIAL] Litter Critters

See my Heather Graham review

 

[SKETCH] The Blake family has...unique customs

The audience really got into this one, as did I. I can't believe Chris Parnell was willing to let Will spit food into his mouth three times. Still, I enjoyed it.

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] E! News: Fashion Week

Julianna as Elizabeth Hurley was the best part of this whole sketch, which memorable lines such as "It's like wearing a spanking." and "Is that my rack ringing?"

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] Simmah dawn na!

SNL is making the most unexpected recurring sketches this year! This is still funny the second time around but I think they should kill this off while they're ahead.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Crocodile Hunter

Kattan's accent was great. You could obviously see the hawk was fake but it was still a funny sketch!

Grade: A-

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

Left the room briefly but I saw most of Cheri's commentary, which was undoubtedly funny.

Grade: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] DMX

Riiiiiiiight

Grade: N/A

 

[SKETCH] Erectile dysfunction commercial

Best sketch of the night! Some great lines in here but I think it would've been funnier if they just ran straight through the commercial without everyone interrupting. And the fact that it was actually a Tootsie Roll commercial had me ROTF.

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] MTV's Savin' It

Will and Jimmy were kinda funny, but this sketch kinda sucked.

Grade: C-

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] DMX

Once again...riiiiiiiiiiiiight

Grade: N/A

 

[SKETCH] Bloater brothers

SNL is on a roll with closing sketches this year! The way Chris P. and Jimmy were laughing for no reason was just LOL funny! Not the best closing sketch but it made me laugh!

Grade: A-

 

[COMMERCIAL] William Shatner for Priceline.com

Not a classic commercial but a good way to end the show.

Grade: B-

 

[OVERALL]

Definitely one of the season's better shows right up there with Norm MacDonald and Dylan McDermott. I hope y'all had fun reading my review cuz I'm outta here!

Overall Grade: B+
