EPISODE REVIEWS


Jerry Seinfeld / David Bowie
October 2, 1999


[OPENING] Perot seeks ideal Reform candidate
I didn't see this in its entirety, so I'm not going to
count it.

[MONOLOGUE] Jerry Seinfeld
Not bad, not good...basically run of the mill type
monologue. The whole New York typical day thing was
ok, but I know he could've done better. The best part
was the end (Aeroporto...Wings in Spanish).
My grade: B

[COMMERCIAL] www.clownpenis.fart
I thought this was really funny for some reason...I
would have so much trouble keeping a straight face
saying that over and over and over. I thought it was
pretty clever.
My grade: A-

[SKETCH] Morning Latte
I expected more from this sketch. It's usually one of
my favorites, but it fell a little flat tonight. I
did like Chris Parnell having a seizure, though...
My grade: B-

[SKETCH] Mary Katherine Gallagher goes for Jewish boy
Again, I expected more from this sketch. I know they
did it to help plug the movie coming out next week,
but I wish they'd made the sketch a little stronger.
I thought it was pretty funny how Chris Kattan came
out as a basketball player...he's so short...I also
thought Tim Meadows was hilarious as the guy from
Ethiopia.
My grade: B-

[COMMERCIAL] Javis Home Security System
Very odd...but I liked it.
My grade: B+

[SKETCH] Action 8 News Watch
I loved this one. All I could think was that that is
exactly what all those news shows are like! One of my
faves of the evening.
My grade: A

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn
This was a fabulous Weekend Update. Colin is a very
good anchorman. The Point/Counterpoint segment was
awesome...Jimmy does an awesome Seinfeld impression.
My grade: A

[MUSICAL GUEST] David Bowie
Didn't watch.

[SKETCH] Oz
Eh...kind of like the finale of Seinfeld. Again I
expected more.
My grade: C

[SKETCH] 1-800-EAT SH**
Stupid.
My grade: D

[SKETCH] ... and a Pizza Place
Also stupid. The only saving grace was Kattan's Andy
Dick.
My grade: D+

[MUSICAL GUEST] David Bowie
Didn't watch.

[SKETCH] He's alive ... he's dead ... he's alive
This one started out with me thinking that it was a
very stupid sketch. I did think it was funny how it
was so obvious Jimmy and Horatio weren't even close to
touching Jerry. But it started getting funny when he
kept getting killed and revived. And I loved how they
all goofed up when Jerry and Will started laughing.
And it was pretty funny how at the end you could see
Jimmy lose it, and then the camera went on Horatio and
he was laughing too. So by default, one of my faves.
My grade: A

OVERALL VIEWS:
I'm glad that all three featured players were made
full cast members. They are all very talented...but
where the hell was Tracy Morgan? The show overall was
okay, but not great.
My grade: B-

So the final is: B.
