February 12, 2000

This is my first episode review so it may be a little shaky but later ones will be better.Just think of it as the pilot episode of a show.
It was hard reviewing SNL because I love the show,but here goes.

Cold Open:

A message from Hillary Rodham Clinton:

Funny how Bill Clinton kept passing by the camera.It's true,now he's in the shadows.

Grade: B-


ER-Special Veterinary Unit- Funny when they shocked the animal and it flew up.
- Noah Wylh as Spanish doctor.I knew someone from ER would be in that sketch.

I knew that audience member looked familiar.I think she also played an audience member in the Gwenth Paltrow episode.

Grade: B

Litters Critters:They showed this sketch before.

-Funny how the annoncer says,"There's plenty more where that came from" and then they show the kids giving their cat more food.
-The pinata fiiled with candy that i'm pretty sure doesn't taste that great.

Grade: D

-"Here comes some corn"

I'm surprised they didn't totally crack up during the sketch.Julianna Margulies was laughing abit.

E News:

-Will and Cheri biting it out.At the end,Will pushes Cheri off her chair.
