    Love is very complicated and complex thing that can be expressed in many different ways. No one really knows the true meaning of love.

    No. That was a repeat from 12/11. It wasn't that good of an episode anyways...it's been a little better than last season

    Episode XI:

    Opening Words: I keep my expectations very low. . ..

    Ratings: 9=A 7=B 5=C 3=D 1=F

    Cold Opening: American Idol

    Simon and them talk about all the horrible auditions they’ve seen. Just horrible audition after horrible audition. Even a cameo from Rachael as the girl with the arm sticking out of head.
    This was a simple sketch where all they do is just parody a show and that’s it. This is what SNL does best…that’s why they never do it anymore.

    Actors: Maya, Kenan, Amy, Simon, Horatio, Fred, Will, Rachael
    Best Line: Chris: Well, get yourself a new ‘everybody I know’

    Monologue:

    Paris, with dog in matching blue dress, …first thing she says is “that’s hot.” Kenan comes on stage and says his dog wants to meets Paris’ dog. The dogs have a little conversation…and that was…forgettable.

    Actors: Kenan

    Sketch 1: Donatella Versace

    Donatella goes skiing with Paris Hilton (with dog). They talk…then call each other Bitches. Donatella then throws her down the side of the mountain. Forgettable. In comes Elton John…..who then ate so much fondue he can cause an avalanche and then…. To be continued. Great…more of this garbage

    Actors: Maya, Horatio, Finesse

    Sketch 2: Starkeesha:

    Starkeesha goes purse shopping and he and Paris fight over the same handbag…then realize it’s too much then look for something smaller. I don’t believe the crowd laughed more than twice.


    Actors: Chris, Seth, Kenan, Finsesse

    Performance 1: Keane

    Fast Forward….

    Weekend Update:

    Of course we start with a Bush Joke…a lot of other jokes…no memorable jokes. In comes Donovan McNabb and his Chunky Soup peddlin’ mother…the second round of jokes go over a little better. Then comes…little tiny people who live under the WU desk. They do their thing until Fred accidentally throws her off the desk. This prompts the audience to do stupid things, which kills the audience..it had to be sometime. Third set of jokes bomb. Tina and Amy do a Superbowl point-counterpoint…with local accents. Uh…would’ve been better with two other people. Meh.

    Actors: Tina, Amy, Finesse, Kenan, Fred, Rachael

    Sketch 5: Merv the Perv

    Merv the Perv goes to his 20th high school reunion…a bombed joke or two. Then flashback to high school where the cheerleader has to decide who she wants to go to the prom with…the crowd didn’t buy into it until the end…I, however, will be putting this on my worst of the year list.

    Sketch 7: Inside Barbie’s Dreamhouse

    Ken cheats on Barbie with….Fashion Fever Barbie. Uh…the only thing I have to say is…when Amy ripped Paris’s arm off…Paris used both hands to grab the 3rd arm…you notice things like that when sketches blow…

    Still on fast forward…

    Sketch 8 (12:55 throwaway sketch): Bar

    Stupid short movie: Bear City: Buying a pack of smokes

    A bear tries to buy cigarettes.

    Rating: F


    Overall Thoughts: Paris wasn’t too bad as a host, but the sketch choice was absolutely horrible. . . but it doesn’t matter, because people didn’t tune into this episode to watch sketches and ‘funny.’ It’s not her fault we had to be subjected to horrible sketches like Donatella, merv, and Starkeesha.

    Overall Rating: 42/110 (.38)
    Felt Like: 4.5

    Episode XII: Jason Bateman and Kelly Clarkson

    I don’t care if this episode is horrible, it’ll still be better than Paris Hilton last week.

    Ratings: 9=A 7=B 5=C 3=D 1=F

    Cold Opening: NBC Special Report

    Kim Jong Il holds a press conference to say that they have Nuclear Weapons. Everyone there flatters him and he rambles on about how powerful and crazy he is. This really could be the funniest sketch in the world, but I can’t get past the fact that Chris and Will are probably the worst choices for Korean reporters….but it wasn’t. It was for the most part unmemorable.

    Actors: Seth, Horatio, Maya, Chris, Will, Fred

    Monologue:

    Jason talks about his days as a child actor. Amy comes on and says that if Arrested Development gets cancelled, her husband would have to be out of work and she’d have to sell her boat. This just seems awkward. There’s no chemistry. They’re not even looking at each other. It seems way too over rehearsed ….not good.

    Sketch One: Monkeys Throwing Poop at Celebrities

    Jason plays the host of a talk show who’s premise is….well…it’s very straight forward. Jason flubs a few lines. Sean Connery comes on the show and instantly figures out that a monkey will throw poop at him…and eventually the monkey throws poop at him. One sad thing is that when the camera’s on the monkey you can see some poop coming from off screen. . . horrible.

    Sketch Three: Ridin’ on the Metro

    Oh what a surprise, Amy and Jason are a couple. Various bums come on the train. They get rejected by the old lady and businessman, but Jason is kind to them and gives them money. Kelly Clarkson has a cameo as a homeless blind woman who sings. Old lady and businessman give her money, but the couple gives her a burger king receipt

    Weekend Update:

    More of the same anti-bush garbage from Tina, Amy’s Howard Dean joke goes absolutely nowhere. A quick interlude with Amy and Tina…ok…Seth and Fred come on as Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. Seth flubs a line, but covers it up nicely. Seth and Fred share a kiss…
    More jokes..Jag, Vermont Teddy Bears, Michael Jackson among others…they were so-so. A singing tribute to Condeleeza Rice by Amy and Tina. Tina makes a low blow at Bill Cosby then she and Amy both do their Cosby impersonations…which blow.
    A lot of jokes fell flat…maybe it’s just this week’s show is really that bad.

    Sketch Five: Serial Killer voice over

    Bill Curtis does a voice over for a new serial killer show. Standard bit where they’d have a normal conversation about Build-a-bear workshop in between talking about corpses and man’s rectum’s. By the standards of the night, it’s by far the best, but overall, ok.

    Sketch Six: Rap Night with Chubb Hotty

    I’m surprised the sketch made a return. Right as we start off, the curtain guy screws up big time. No real interaction between the DJ and Chubb. Jason plays Chubb’s video director, and they have a little behind the scenes action. Kelly plays Chubb’s girlfriend. And it ends with a big fart. . . not as good as the last time, and odds are they’ll use the dress rehearsal cut from this one….

    Actors: Keenan, Horatio

    Sketch Seven: Public Speaking
    They have to give oral presentations about public speaking. No one wants to come up. Marine Drill Sergeant Rob comes up and just yells. Maya’s too shy and whispers. Seth acts like crazy sports fans. Jason just hits on Amy…yadda yadda yadda. Chris was actually funny through this.

    Actors: Keenan, Maya, Amy, Seth, Chris, Rob
    Rating: 6

    Overall Thoughts: It’s times like this when you have such a bad episode, that you don’t even want to write a review any more….
    Overall Rating: 50/100
    Felt Like: 3.

    I guess I gave out a lot of pity points on this one. It just started off really slow and it didn’t really get better. I don’t know. Jason’s a good actor, but his interaction with the troupe was just lacking. I don’t know…Not very good at all. But then again, that’s just my opinion.

    I haven't made the effort to watch SNL this past season. Watching last night reminds me of why I haven't made the effort. I didn't find ANYTHING funny with the exception of the bit on Prince Charles, which got a chuckle. Very Blah. What's wrong with these people? Fire 'em all and start over....

    Episode 13: Hilary Swank and 50 Cent

    Is it just me, or does nobody really care about this season. I mean it’s the 30th season, there’s supposed to be a big hoopla about it, but outside the Ashlee Simpson incident, no one even cares about this show…eh, 7 episodes to go. .

    Ratings: 9=A 7=B 5=C 3=D 1=F

    Cold Opening: Michael Jackson in Neverland

    Liz Taylor talks to Michael about the impending trial while he’s in bed. LaToya comes in, proclaims his innocence and says that he should be more grounded like she is. McCauley Caulken comes on who proceeds to scare Michael because he’s too old. Martin Bashir wants to do another documentary. Liz Taylor keeps telling Michael who’s who and why there here. In comes Geraldo Rivera…then Liz throws them out…then Emanuel Lewis comes in, Michael thinks he’s a kid….yadda yadda yadda. This was written out well, but not in the least bit funny.

    Monologue:

    Hilary comes on and says how grateful she is to be here…She talks about her movie and asks if anyone saw it…probably not since it only made what, 30 million? She talks about the training…does jump rope with Chris, walks backstage and does vocal exercises with Will and Maya, drinks mayonnaise with Horatio. Goes backstage with Keenan who, dressed like a woman, is ready to perform comedy while sleeping. Rachael is drinking and throws a bottle at Tina’s picture. Seth and Amy go over old sketches, seth makes out with hilary then does Amy….not very funny, but seemed to be written well, yadda yadda yadda.

Then they feel the temptation to touch the plates….uh, then comes in Satan and says that we’re in Hell? Uh…huh? This, I don’t know, had to be the strangest sketch I’ve seen in a while.

    I’m almost at the point where I’d rather watch the musical performances and just fast forward this. They talk about Michael Jackson and those stupid gates.
    In comes Tom Jankleoff, a New Yorker, who asks other people about those stupid gates. Fred interviews people, then interrupts them, walks away, insults the people, etc…
    More jokes- Mary Kay Laterneau, N. Korea, Harlem, Listerine, random unfunny time killer…Bush, Spears, yadda yadda yadda.
    Enter Morgan Freeman, who narrates his own entrance, talks about how he wants to get it on.

    Nothing special really. It seems like the writers and cast too are just waiting for the season to end and the wholesale changes to begin. It used to be “it was a good show, except for two sketches,” now it’s “there were 2 good sketches, and that’s it.” Yeah, just a lot of garbage as of late…

    what it all comes down to is the writing.
    it's the 30th season (which should be a noteworthy one) but no one cares.
    you can act the hell out of scene, but if it's not written funny, there's not much you can do. Eh, Tina's out after the end of the year. good riddance.

    Yep, terrible writing begets terrible acting begets NOT FUNNY.

    Thankfully, they had that "SNL: The first 5 years" on Sunday. A nice reflection on funny years.

    *Bump*

    I watched last night to see Paula Abdul and the parody of the Prime Time news report that aired on May 4th. It was amusing.

    System of a Down was the musical guest; I have heard of them but have never actually heard their music. Strangely enough I enjoyed it - I guess this season on American Idol has taught me to appreciate theatrics. Did anyone else watch this episode, and if you did, did you notice that SOAD singer was screaming F*** you as part of the lyrics. SNL faithfully cut the sound each time they sang this part of the lyrics, but totally missed the lead singer who screamed F*** you at the end of the song? LOUD and CLEAR. Wonder what the FCC will make of that?
