EPISODE REVIEWS


Jerry Seinfeld / David Bowie
October 2, 1999


[OPENING] Perot seeks ideal Reform candidate

Cheri Oteri was hilarious as Ross Perot and Darrell Hammond looked great as Donald Trump. I was sad to see him in only one sketch this episode. I hope to see more of him this season. Jesse Ventura additive, good surprise. C+

------------------------------------------------

[MONOLOGUE] Jerry Seinfeld

This monolgue was way too believable of Jerry Seinfeld B+

----------------------------------------------

[COMMERCIAL] www.clownpenis.fart

Very funny. Chris Parnell really has some talent, and I was very glad to see him throughout this weeks SNL. He was used very little last year, and I'm glad that they used him this week. The sketch itself was very ironic and true too point. A-

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] Morning Latte

Cass Van Rye deserves a b**** slap. One more hilarious appearance by Chris parnell. B- (it would've been a C without Chris)

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] Mary Katherine Gallagher goes for Jewish boy

Hilarious. The skit was so true. I was especially amazed that Molly Shannon who's an Irish Catholic could actually pronounce, shicksa. A+

------------------------------------------------

[COMMERCIAL] Javis Home Security System

(didn't see)

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] Action 8 News Watch

So true. Jerry Seinfeld, could really work a career in journalism, it suits him. C

------------------------------------------------

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

My favorite part of the whole episode was the debate between the two Jerry Seinfelds (Jimmy Fallon and the real Jerry). Jimmy Fallon has soooo much potential. I truthfully believe he could be the next adam Sandler. Anyways, Jimmy Fallon is hot and I like italian guys so I'll give the guy some credit. A+

------------------------------------------------

[MUSICAL GUEST] David Bowie

David Bowie was good. He needs to trim the hair a little. B

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] Oz

It was okay. Not the greatest skit. But Props to SNL for actually filming it in the real set of Oz. B-

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] 1-800-EAT SH**

Cheesy. C-

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] ... and a Pizza Place

I was bored out of my mind. D

------------------------------------------------

[MUSICAL GUEST] David Bowie

He molested the guitar players head. I think not. C

------------------------------------------------

[SKETCH] He's alive ... he's dead ... he's alive

Now this was funny. The skit just got to the point where it got so pitiful, all of them were litterally about to burst out laughing. I could see Jimym in the back holding his hand over his mouth, and Jerry who was supposed to be dead smiling. I loved it. Great ending for a great episode A+

 

All in all, A+ . A couple kinks had to be worked out, but what a great way to start the season :)
