    Episode 14: Colin Firth

    Episode XIV: Colin Firth and Norah Jones

    <B> Opening Words </B>
    I really have nothing this week. No rants, no raves, no nothing. I guess that’ll shorten the size a tad. I hope this lack of words won’t effect my review this evening.

    On to the show….

    <B> Cold Opening</B> Nightline
    this shocks me as it started 11.29, so the first minute is forever lost in the annals of time. This week’s Nighline deals with Martha Stewart’s guiltiness. Kenan plays, I guess the prosecuting attorney. Forte plays a broker from Merrill Lynch, who claims that Martha was a bitch and got what she deserves. He then says they should go on a bitch hunt, including Hillary Clinton, Oprah, and Yoko Ono. Horatio comes on as Rosie O’Donnell. Rosie says she’s angry and will support Martha. Ana comes back, like I had called in an earlier conversation with a friend. I called it, so I can’t complain, but I had said she’d be in a full sketch. This wasn’t too bad. It was good, but way too long for an opening, so I must take a point off for that.
    Ana gets the Live from NY

    Actors: Hammond, Kenan, Forte, Horatio,
    Best Line: Forte: Martha stewart got what she deserved because she’s a huge bitch.

    <B> Monologue </b>

    Colin feels honoured to host and names off the movies he’s been in…none of which I’ve seen or probably ever will. Amy comes out, and quotes one of his films, he answers…yeah. Maya does a romeo and Juliet bit, but sounds like donatella versace. Doesn’t help her cause. They say he’s the first classically trained actor to come on in a long time. Dratch comes out and kisses him. Seth comes out as Hugh Grant. What is his appeal? All lost on me. Seth then becomes himself and says he has a man-crush on him.
    The mancrush part was funny, but I cannot honestly reward a reminder of donatella.

    Actors: Poehler, Maya, Dratch, Myers
    Best Line: Dratch: Play? Oh, I always had a fantasy of dressing up and going to town on some English dude

    <B> Civil War Film </B>

    Director Jimmy is filming a civil war period film. Colin then does a bad nasally impression…that sounds like a lot like Charles Nelson Riley. Finesse appears in a dress (we know he had no part in this writing). Then Seth comes in, I guess as CNR, that makes very little sense, then they all use their real voices, where Parnell is Japanese, amy British, ok…but I thought it was good, I can’t complain.

    Actors: Poehler, Parnell, Fallon, Dratch, Finesse, Meyers

    Fred brings back his drumming character from last year. Ugh, not a fan. He does his “ay dios mio” “I’m just kidding” routine. I think it’s funny that he had some drums at his desk. He makes a bad “butte, Montana. It says butte” joke. Ugh. Colin comes on as himself and outpuns him, but they lay flat, then ferricito tells him how to deliver a joke.
    I know there are some fans of this sketch, but I think this was utter garbage.

    Tim, as part of the dept of ATF. Parnell drills him about a 2002 incident, and with firth as the lawyer, tries to answer them just feeds Calhoun the lines. Parnell then plays a tape admitting calhoun’s guilt to drug smuggling. I was expecting a little more, as Calhoun deserves an instant 10, but still the best we’ve seen thus far.

    <B> Weekend Update </b>
    Tina does a Martha joke. Stumbles over the line. Then talks to jimmy. Ugh. Then laughs at her stupid joke. Fire her now! Ugh.
    Jimmy does an Oscar joke about a homeless man “repeatedly wandering on stage” (LOTR director), funny. Then goes into a Passion joke “jesus is dating J-lo”, and you can hear Tina laughing in the background.
    Tina stumbles again and cuts live to Maya and the white women looting. Crowd wasn’t buying that one.
    Jimmy with a Paris Hilton joke.
    Tina- drunk man stealing plane joke/bush, probably line of the night., then to an ashcroft hospitalized “removed the stick from his butt” eh.
    Peter Jackson and Elijah wood from LOTR show up with all their Oscars, looking to collect more. Surprisingly, the two both keep composure. They come to collect an award, jimmy gives them gum. Fell pretty flat.
    Tina Atkins diet mood swings joke with a bitch punchline,. Ok. Then to a dumb Jessica Simpson joke, crowd laughed.
    Jimmy does Wesley snipes getting arrested joke “your move bobby borwn”
    Tina does a gay students meeting in the drama club punch line
    Jimmy claims he wants a new nickname “J-Rod” ..made no sense. What was strange is that they had the graphic for the next story up, so this had to have been improvised. Still flat. He then goes into a fired paramedic joke. The story was actually funnier than the joke.
    Tina introduces Clinton to handicap this year’s president race. I guess they’re trying hard to fit Hammond into the shows these days. He says he wants to put the “vice” back into “vice president” this probably saved WU for a lot of people, but for me, this raised it from a 3 to a 5.
    Pencil on the mark, but falls short.
    Worst WU of the year.

    Kenan plays a bellhop. Firth asks for some ‘professional company’, and Kenan then tries to get some sweet lovin from him. Horatio comes in, and they try to double team him. He threatens to call the cops. The cop’s a part of it too, so firth gives away al his money. This is something that should’ve been on at 12.50, not now. Kenan I think was the weak link in this sketch as I think this bit required overacting.

It seems that the usual garbage time 12.50, actually brought up the average of the horrible WU and Ferrecito. I don’t know, the stuff wasn’t that great, but I think the writing has improved, which reflects the scores, but it seemed average.

    Did this show start late? I didn't catch the last half hour
    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    3.13 Ben affleck

    Episode XV: Ben Affleck and N*E*R*D

    <B> Opening Words </B>
    With the addition of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen hosting the season finale, this has become the MTV TRL SNL Tour 2k4. Justin Timberlake, Nick and Jessica, Christina, Linday Lohan, Janet Jackson. I don’t really care whether or not they were a) funny or b) popular amongst critics, but this is a serious detraction from the show’s core. They used to have up-and-coming actors with a focus on political sketches. They’ve had three different cast members playing George Bush, and the best they can do is Tina Fey’s lame jokes (whom I can’t stand). Lorne has sold himself this year for the younger audience. Not a wise move.

    <B> Cold Opening </B> Denise and Sully

    I knew they’d break it out, but I didn’t think during the opening. Kind of an odd cold opening. Affleck also appears in the cold opening. I think he’s the first to be in that. Turns out they’re at Affleck and Seth Myers wedding. The reaction of the two kids. It was a funny twist for this otherwise drab sketch. Myers and Affleck actually kiss, which also comes as a shock. The 2nd kiss Myers gets a hand up.
    Dratch, Fallon, and Affleck get the live from SNL.
    This was a long, strange opening to the show.

    Actors: Fallon, Dratch, Poehler, Myers, Parnell, Horatio

    <B> Monologue </B>

    Ben comes out promoting Jersey Girl. He then gives obscure facts like he was born in Cali or dated J Lo. He then takes up arms with the name Bennifer, then says he’s going to sell Bennifer, Benyonce, Boprah, mary-kate and ashfleck, and ben-gay (marsha-gay hardman or if matt finally comes around) shirts.
    This was…short…can’t complain. This is what a monologue is supposed to be. I can reward that with some points.

    Jimmy gets the nod for back to back sketches early on. Usually it’s just one sketch, then WU, then done. This is the third time we’ve seen it this year, last two were Roddick and Nick and Jessica, and those shows were both horrible. He sounds like Pat O’Brien. Affleck plays Dirty Dan the Garbage man, a new DJ, who does the same shtick as Jimmy. This got unfunny really fast with Jimmy using the term “poop weiner.” I don’t even need to go on. It started off kind of funny, but then degraded to poop jokes. Had it ended at 4.00 with the Different villages line, it’d be an easy 7, but poop jokes can not be rewarded

Ben was chuckling most the time.

    Finesse comes on a financial consultant. He talks about Bill collectors. It was funny and had a point, but a bold statement with a purple shirt and a purpler tie. Maya comes on as Diana Ross to defend herself. . . this bombed once, so they bring it back. I notice a trend. It sucked. And Maya felt up Tina…*shrug* Hammond comes out as Clinton again….ugh, I think they’re slowing killing it.
    Hammond breaks character when talking to Tina, then again. Hammond seems…odd.

    however, you forgot to take this into account- Ben was laughing, but he held composure...Jimmy and Horatio cannot.
    Ben doing it but carrying it on (like top o the mornin) = funny
    Jimmy and Horatio just stopping the sketch to laugh at each other = annoying and almost sad.

    that's why i think it was ok. thanks for reading.

    Episode 16 Donald Trump

    Episode XVI: Donald Trump and Toots & The Maytals and co.

    <B> Opening Words </B>

    Now we enter what I call the “ugh” stretch of SNL. We all know there will be some major changes to the cast next year, so all we have to do is just make through these five episodes and we’re good to go, right? Not so fast. We have to make it through a Trump (who is wearing himself thin), Janet Jackson (whom the media seems to be getting tired of), Lindsey Lohan (great…more teen hosts), TBA (There’s hope yet), and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (ugh…) Doesn’t look so good for the diehard fan now does it?
    As for this show, I’ll keep an open mind.

    <B> Cold Opening </B> Apprentice

    No shocker there. They have to justify the show being good tonight, and how the show isn’t funny and one of them is going to be fired. Finesse says he’s not leaving because he’s one of 4 blacks on NBC, so Amy turns on Jimmy …and Jimmy’s fired. Lorne comes on and says its his show and fires Jimmy. Clip of Jimmy leaving NBC studios. ..cut back to the office and ….some woman, Caroline, gets the Live from NY? Ok…Maybe if I had actually seen this show for a second I would have gotten the subtleness and nuances, but most of it, over my head. The associates lost me, but Jimmy getting fired more than makes up for it.

    So this is in Inglewood, right next to Al Sharpton’s Casa De Sushi (which was in Seacaucus)


    Actors: Kenan, Seth, Amy, Maya, Horatio
    Best Line: Horatio: When I’m not…throwing sperm around the lesbian community

    <B> Performance </B> Toots and the Maytalls, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper.

    For those who like that type of music….


    <B> Weekend Trumpdate </B>

    They get a fancy new set. Tina says she doesn’t like it, and they go back to normal version…. And no one laughed.
    WU…Jokes and jokes and jokes, some were ok. Tina’s spiel is getting old fast. And it’s not just me and my anti-feyness. All she does is rely on Bush jokes. If you watch episodes from the beginning of the episode, its just stale.
    WU door, and its Omarosa from the Apprentice …ok? Maybe it would be funny had I watched this show, then things fall on her head, again and again and again. Hey, that’s the trashcan from Donnie G and sidecar. . and that’s it? Pencil hits the camera
    Some of the jokes were good, but the Maya thing, as always, killed it. –2 for that.

    Actors: Jimmy, Fey, Amy, Maya
    Best Line: Jimmy: Singer Norah Jones turned 25 on Tuesday, her fans turned 50.

    <B>The Prince and the Pauper </B>

    Hammond fires a 9 year old and claims she doesn’t get any joy from it. Trump, as a plumber, comes in and rips on Trump. Points for him being able to do that. They switch and the pauper becomes the prince and tells the assistant to shoot the prince. This sketch really had nothing to it, but points for Trump being able to say those things.

    Actors: Hammond, Amy, Armison, Maya
    Best Line: Looks like you killed a squirrel to me and put it on top of your head.

    <B>Fathers and Sons </b>

    Another Public Access show…and is that the couch from jock talk? Seth and Donald are a father and son talking about their relationship. Father calls son a sissy…Horatio and jimmy as the neighbors. Horatio says one line and Jimmy laughs…and oh no, its characterbreaking all around. And they laugh and laugh
    I give a pity point to Seth because he looked so bummed out that Jimmy and Horatio ruined his only sketch of the night. Poor Seth…and poor us for having to watch them laugh at each other.

    Actors:Myers, Horatio, Fallon
    Best Line: Myers (adlib) they’re so sad they’re happy

    <B>9/11 Attacks Panel </b>

    Clarke says that Bush likes Beer. Beer. Beer this. Beer that. Yawn.
    Dratch comes on and asks questions.
    Parnell more of the same.yawn.
    Horrible sketch. It was a novel idea, but it failed miserably.

    Actors: Armison, Hammond, Dratch, Parnell
    Best Line: He told me that I worried too much…and then he touched me in what I considered an inappropriate manner

    <B> musical performance 2 </b>
    Toots, Bootsy, and the Roots

    <B> Apprentice rock band </B>

    Another Apprentice sketch? Way to recycle the set….in between the apprentice votes, Donald and the two assistants form a rock band…..umm..what do you expect from a 12.55 sketch? It looks like he was having fun on the keyboard.

    Actors: Maya, Dratch, Amy, Armison

    No Smigel Cartoon (which was promised in the credits) Credits cut off yet again.

    <B> Overall Rating: 46/90 (5) </B>
    Felt like- 4- 4.5.
    Best Actor: Hammond, Hands down.
    Worst: Horatio and Jimmy. . .how many sketches will they ruin until someone does something?
    Line of the night:
    Tie- Donald: This Idiot [Jimmy] was laughing the whole time
    Jimmy: Singer Norah Jones turned 25 on Tuesday, her fans turned 50.
    Seth: They’re so sad, they’re happy (it’s so true…)

    I was completely underwhelmed with this episode. It was just an hour and a half long commercial for the Apprentice. What’s going to happen when this goes to syndication in a few years and this show is long forgotten? What can they use? Nothing. I don’t know. I came in with little expectations, and came out of it wishing for another Affleck episode. Donald can’t act. They wrote the whole show around him and he failed miserably.
    Plus Zero Will is not good.

    Psi, I have to respectfully disagree. The show was hilarious for once. You may have gotten more out of it if you were an Apprentice fan. This is the first show I have enjoyed in a long time.

    but um ... what was with Tina Fey flashing that really loud red bustier at the end of WE? that was just odd.
