Will and Grace had been on for years. It’s interesting to see the different ways people viewed Gays In Space. Lauren Pomerantz is an American comedy writer who has worked on several TV shows including the MTV Video Music Awards and Saturday Night Live on NBC. Virgania Horsen (KRW) wants you to take a ride in her hot air balloon. STARS: ***, WEDDING TOAST Congrats to him (and to SNL), and may this one be better than the first…. It seems like she was hired just to fill the gap Maya left, since apparently Lorne wasn’t feeling anyone who auditioned during the summer. I had said 6 months ago in a review that I skipped over watching this episode when going through the whole 04-05 season because I remember thinking it was a terrible episode, but now I’m not sure why I hated it so much. Ok was this episode REALLY that bad? Yeah, while this isn’t a great episode, I was surprised by so many commentators’ hate for it. edited-in grandsons (BIH) & (ANS) quell anxiety in DVDs for old people, — “The following is a message for old people.” That opening disclaimer made me laugh harder than it probably should’ve. Wow, she’s HOT!” The monologue is also poorly written, with the Jackson jokes and relying SO much on Amy saying “I don’t want to sell my boat!” over and over and over, to the point where the audience, embarrassingly, dies off completely. — Overall, yep. Lauren Pomerantz. 10/30/04: Kate Winslet / Eminem. — Very funny little moment from Kristen with her clarifying to Andy that her last name, St. George, is pronounced “stuh-gorg”. Casey was the first new cast member in 2 1/2 years, which is unfathomable for post-2000 SNL. Two of Tina’s Update jokes (Lindsay Lohan finding new ways to look old and wondering if Kirstie Alley thinks people can’t actually see her) reminded me again of how much she veered toward Norm in scathing putdown territory, just hidden by clapter and righteousness. Bret Michaels (JAS) doesn’t choose one-legged Amber, — In hindsight, this sketch now serves as a time capsule of these “……Of Love” reality shows that dominated VH1 in the late 2000s. Instead, they kept adding unnecessary elements like Alex Moffat’s alien abductions guy and Chloe Fineman’s baffling Nicole Kidman thing. What I find amusing about this season is that while most people agree on the best episodes, the worst episode gets really varied reactions, which probably is one of the reasons why is this is a troubled season. A.D. Virgania Horsen (KRW) wants you to take a ride in her hot air balloon, — So much bizarre, low-budget randomness here, but I am loving it, and it’s being executed so well. I remember at the time thinking this was the worst show of that season, especially the “Monkey Throwing Poop” sketch. 4:51. I enjoy monkeys throwing poop. lauren german eyebrows. — Ha, Obama Girl (a.k.a. A lovely close with Don Pardo. (I know, I know.

Anything post-08, though, and it becomes super embarrassing. — A rare non-Celebrity Jeopardy appearance from Darrell’s Sean Connery. I was impressed his entire monologue was about the monkey incident; I love when the show references its own history. — I’m enjoying how the performers in this sketch are each getting a comedic showcase one-by-one that’s different from one another. Her Rachael Ray impression was aces, though. It just depends on how bad the bad stuff is. It’s funny that Jason’s monologue was basically just him (comically) begging people to watch Arrested Development. Comment document.getElementById("comment").setAttribute( "id", "a0fbc512fbc811bb4737e452aa601223" );document.getElementById("b5a270e7ee").setAttribute( "id", "comment" ); Notify me of follow-up comments by email. — I love Finesse’s sudden outburst of “HELL NO!” The tall guy in the barbershop quartet is James Anderson, who rarely appears on camera and the short guy is Tina Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond. Kate must be nearing the end because she’s too front and center so far this season. The blocking and camera angles feel “off” in it. Ms. Pomerantz said she didn’t think so. I ask one more time in my review of this sketch: FUCKING KILL ME. I feel for you, Stooge–you haven’t had a great last few months, with this. — Aaaaaaaand there goes the obligatory huge fart in tonight’s Chubb Hotty sketch. Casey Wilson’s hiring is strange. birthday. nuke-wielding Kim Jong Il (HOS) makes demands at fawning press conference, — Seth reprises his Brian Williams impression for the first time since Seth was only in his fourth episode on SNL. Sort by Popularity - Most Popular Movies and TV Shows With Lauren Pomerantz Refine See titles to watch instantly, titles you haven't rated, etc. I feel like where you stand with this episode might also just so happen to depend on whether or not you like Monkeys Throwing Poop At Celebrities. Bateman and Cecily even said “son of a bitch!” like Farley over and over again. — A very funny blunt, rude “I hope you two die!” parting message from Mahoney to the newlyweds. Also, Bateman is kind of stumbly, especially early on, so perhaps a host better suited for the kind of insane patter this sketch requires would help too. “I Drink Your Milkshake” is my number one favorite Bill Hader sketch, but I totally forget that it was in this episode! Once Poehler leaves, the balance of power gets completely thrown off its axis and a handful of deeply talented performers get completely neutered in service of the Kristen Wiig Experience. I would have forgotten “Me-Harmony” existed if not for Forte in drag, and the obligatory gay joke with Seth. The approval rating joke is some liberal goalpost moving, which is just so insufferable about this era. Andrew Steele. Her first 2 roles in months and they’re just variations of characters she’s been playing for years. — SNL saves the best for last, as the underrated Chris Parnell absolutely steals this whole sketch with his very funny Gesture Dyslexia bit. My first experience with gay characters in sketch comedy was the Tracey Ullman Show – the gay dad and his partner played by Dan Castalanetta and Sam McMurray. Rhyan Coleman says: August 5, 2020 at 10:38 am. Sean Connery (DAH) gets hit, — Okay, we definitely need to discuss this sketch. homosexual rocketmen encounter sperm-seeking lesbians, — I’ll say for the second time tonight: OH FUCKING NO. I can’t say for sure if he’s nailing the voice, though. That clip that was shared in the Paris Hilton comments just made me go, “Wow…” when Seth, Maya, and Fred were calling the sketches “great.”. They know it’s stupid, but they also know that the SHOW knows it’s stupid. It would probably be another four seasons before the show started to recover (and then the dinguses opt to sideline Tim Robinson, setting the show back once again). A laugh track could be horrible, but shows like SCTV did it okay. Kim Jong II Press Conference, Chubb Hotty, T.T. I will however agree that the Fey/Poehler Update era was God awful! STARS: ****, I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE Lauren Pomerantz. STARS: ****, ANNUALE I can’t remember if I’ve seen it confirmed that Casey did indeed get her own scene in the dress rehearsal version of this sketch. (Probably a good thing, in hindsight.) I remember some online SNL fans back at this time in 2005 wondering if Amy and Jason constantly playing a romantic couple is SNL’s way of playfully trolling Arnett. There are one or two after this which are more tolerable (and I think Maya is replaced by Will, which is a marginal help), but overall, it’s just crap. IMMEDIATE POST-SHOW THOUGHTS — I see SNL’s already letting Casey Wilson know her status as a newbie (which, as we now know, SNL would sadly NEVER stop doing for the remainder of Casey’s short-lived run as a cast member), as she’s the only contestant in this sketch who doesn’t get her own pre-taped confessional sequence like the other contestants are. Same, I thought for sure Anderson wrote the lounge act sketch. — Poor Casey, being one of the four female leads in this sketch, but getting no lines, nor her own scene like the other three female leads are getting. STARS: *½, MONKEYS THROWING POOP AT CELEBRITIES I’m apparently in the minority in not finding this episode to be among the worst of season 30. Tina’s “Bitch is the new Black” commentary which I enjoyed immensely as well as the “I Drink Your Milkshake” sketch though I’ve yet to watch the movie it came from. It was fun. Random thought that just occurred to me was when Casey first joined the cast I couldn’t help but notice she resembled early 90s Julia Sweeney quite a bit, the screencap above of her in the pre-tape of the last sketch for example I think was what made me remember that. One of them is this enchanting French Tudor Revival, built in the 1930s and designed by Frank Scott Crowhurst, the architect responsible for Walt Disney's nearby family home and Burbank studio. 11/20/04: Luke Wilson / U2. — The ending voice-over from Amy was kinda pushing it and wasn’t necessary, but didn’t hurt this fantastic ad. Oscars Best Picture Winners Best Picture Winners Golden Globes Emmys STARmeter Awards San Diego Comic-Con New York Comic-Con Sundance Film Festival Toronto Int'l Film Festival Awards Central Festival Central All Events It's no secret that the hills of L.A.'s gorgeous Los Feliz neighborhood boast a veritable treasure trove of architectural gems. STARS: ***, MUSICAL PERFORMANCE I had no idea that was Will singing the theme song, either. Marika Sawyer is one the writers featured in the monologue. And yes, Casey’s hiring also starts the unfortunate turn when they went through woman after woman getting the shaft while the show was slowly morphing into The Kristen Wiig Show for the next several seasons. I can see why people would find this episode to have various strengths (the classroom sketch, the Bill Kurtis sketch, the subway sketch, the first “oh hell no” [the others are too much of the same for me]), even if I hate a lot of it. — Kristen’s Campbell Brown: “Like nearly everyone in the media, the three of us are totally in the tank for Senator Obama.” Funny how much things had changed since SNL’s last episode before the writers’ strike, given the fact that, as pointed out in my last episode review, that episode contained a sketch dealing with Hillary Clinton being the media favorite to become the Democratic nominee, much to the other Democratic candidates’ chagrin. However, I personally will defend this sketch to the grave. Robert Carlock and Lauren Pomerantz were credited with an “additional sketch.” Does anyone happen to know what it was? https://www.salon.com/2014/09/12/how_saturday_night_live_got_soft/. This sketch represents so many things I hate not only about this season of SNL, but about James Anderson’s tendencies as a writer. “….fine” is probably how I’d describe a lot of the familiar bits from very familiar cast members (Pete, Kyle, Cecily, Kate, etc.). Also, wow at that Kate sketch being the lead off. The majority of the sketch is Connery’s hesitant questioning of the show’s intent. — (*groan*) Looks like I’m in for a typical Horatio Sanz ham-fest and shout-fest. A lot of this episode was pretty middling imo. He’s coming off likable and laid-back here. I’ve been reading this blog since around last summer and it’s been such a great resource as well as a wonderful place to talk with fans. Robert Smigel. While I still like the Important Moments in Black History sketch, it definitely felt like the show trying to capitalize off the success of Chapelle show. Listed last year for $2.2 million, the house quickly sold for nearly $100,000 over asking, indicative of a hard-fought bidding war, and the new owners are Emmy-winning writer/producer Lauren Pomerantz and her wife, writer/actress Elizabeth Higgins Clark. It’s mainly about GP-Yass from Steve Carell / Ella Mai but it touches on Bowen seeing Gays In Space as important for representation. “Yeah, she is a bitch. I wasn’t crazy about The Apprentice thing, the Amber sketch, and almost all of Update (even ignoring politics, I don’t understand why anyone would be excited to see Mike Huckabee on a comedy show.) 11/20/04: Luke Wilson / U2. I didn’t know the rape allegations against Cosby went as far back as 2005. Yeah, I don’t get the praise for the show’s gay humor from this period. — When Horatio’s Chubb Hotty made his entrance in this sketch, what was with the awkward way the curtain he was standing behind raised up in the air, then got pulled to the side? musical guest performs “Since U Been Gone”, WEEKEND UPDATE If he only knew… LILY COLLINS Covers: Rollacoaster Magazine Autumn/ Winter 2020. Everyday, I lean ever closer to deciding that I’m going to skip these seasons, once my binge watch gets to them. The way a lot of people feel about the Jason Bateman episode is how *I* feel about this Hilary Swank episode. As Stooge points out, Tina blended in well with the cast and even took what would have been insultingly small parts for a host otherwise (two lines in a quick cameo in the classic Milkshake sketch!). And that is probably the cast with comparing SNL to other shows – by 2005, that and Mad TV were generally the only game in town (I can’t even remember if shows like KitH were being repeated; I think SCTV may have been on late night reruns but that might have stopped by this point). IIRC, her contribution was a last minute addition and she disliked the on-camera experience so much she declined to appear on camera again. Series of Important Moments in Black History was amusing. The Monkey Throwing Poop sketch is hilarious, the sketch with Darrell doing the voice over and making comments on the side is a pretty obscure sketch that I think was pretty good, and final sketch of the night with the public speaking presentations was really clever. Ugh. And the shrunken crowd was DEAD, which is a killer for things like the mall Santa sketch where a live audience could have made it a classic (also SNL’s struggles with blocking remain an ever-present issue). I felt bad (badly?) Having Jason and Bowen be his dopplegangers was a very fun, silly choice. We all still miss Don Pardo . I just hope that never happens again to this degree. I started SNL around the same time you did, but quit around 2003 or so, which means I missed a lot of what we’re getting now and I’ve only seen it through going back to rewatch in the last year or so. Much like Molly Shannon in her hosting stint the preceding season, Tina Fey being given a lot of the same type of non-Weekend Update roles she typically played during her cast member years, including some very minor roles, made this episode refreshingly feel almost like there was no host, and that Tina was just a cast member again. Emily Spivey. I think the writing is to blame more than casting, though not everyone had chemistry with each other, and as a whole. From Bowen’s age and what he’s said about his life, he was 14, in a very conservative home, when he presumably first saw Gays in Space. I feel like all of Heidi’s old Update characters reached a natural end, but Bailey’s return was…fine. Unfortunately, whether it’s down to live performance, or being under the weather, he’s very off to me here, somehow worse than his sister, who was never an actress but at least did not weaken the material surrounding her. On the positive side, Update and the pre-tapes were fine, the cold open was cameo-free and had some laugh lines (not great but this is the best I can say about modern SNL cold opens), and nothing came close to being as bad as about 3 things in this first episode. Whereas from 08-12 it felt like Kristen and the other ladies mostly serving to play straight man to her wacky characters. Looking forward to the next few weeks of you reliving his greatest hits. — Jason’s kinda stumbly with his lines early on in this. From the looks of tonight’s show it looks like James Anderson returned with Cecily. This was mostly a boilerplate episode which continues what we’ll get until a number of current people (Kate, Kyle, Cecily, Jost, Che, etc.) Little things like that and the Christmas Zoom Call sketch’s Hallmark Card ending really grate on me, like they’re coddling the audience. Yeah that might be the nadir of this troubled season. Robert Smigel. S30 operates on just like three different modes: “gay”, “fart”, and “Maya with goofy voice.”, When I saw that Hilary Swank is our next host, all I can think of is, “I’m a girl, you know.”. ?” whenever she was in a sketch. He is close to everything Norm hated Bill Pullman for in that game show sketch back in ’96. Not my thing, I guess. Kenny Wilkins nixes sushi, — Once again, the same “HELL NO!” gag as the last two times, but the funny sushi-eating premise of this one made it funny. I say no a lot to things because I’m scared. — Great little detail throughout this commercial with how one object in each scene is pink while the rest of the objects are either a drab color or are shown through a black-and-white screen filter. How many favors did Lorne call in this year, lol. And perhaps also One-Legged Amber’s last sketch. I recall it being obvious that his Obama voice was still a work in progress in these early Obama sketches of his, because, IIRC, he uses an utterly BIZARRE, cartoonish-sounding voice as Obama in the cold opening of the very next episode. — Did Jason just say “Bokay” instead of “Okay” just now? Kind of a weird idea for a monologue, which makes me wonder if Bateman himself really really remembered it. Another thing that comes to mind could be the lack of Tina Fey as head writer anymore who always wrote a lot of female centric ensemble sketches during her era. @CJPhilly, it’s nice to ‘meet’ you. I was surprised how much I enjoyed TT and Mario on my most recent re-visit. Subway is one of those I want to like; it does have positives (and Kelly Clarkson would have been a good host). Prince Charles (SEM) thinks Camilla Parker Bowles (FRA) is quite a catch, TIF & AMP sing “War Is All Around” in honor of Condoleezza Rice, not wanting to anger Bill Cosby, KET passes on a chance to denigrate him, — Blah at that clapter-inducing anti-Bush joke of Tina’s. Could’ve done without the subsequent text crawl being the exact same from last time, though. Robert Smigel (short) Directed by: Beth McCarthy Miller. me-Harmony.com matches narcissists with their opposite-sex alter egos, — Blah. The joke is the premise, that’s what we’re making fun of. It’s like Year 19 in miniature; what’s good is good, but what’s bad is dreadful. Here’s an interview with Anderson and Bowen Yang. Obviously, however, he never saw Kids In The Hell, which was truly daring, progressive, smart and defiantly, gleefully gay. Other than praising Amy’s performance I don’t have anything to say about this sketch with the exception of finding it amusing in hindsight to see Jorge Ramos depicted as an Obama sycophant. Bitches get stuff done. Cecily was, I believe, also more of a dramatic actress who made her way into comedy – she was able to marry the two on SNL in a way Wilson never quite did. & MARIO STARS: ***½, SUBWAY PERFORMERS Was that an intentional joke? This is being executed really well, especially considering this is a later-era Darrell Hammond performance, long after he started seeming checked-out as a performer. As far as monkey sketches go, I think I prefer Dana’s Cooking With Monkey. — Between playing Dennis Kucinich then-recently and now playing Mr. Six in this sketch, I’m getting a big Kate McKinnon vibe from Amy lately. — A decent premise, even if it seems a little unexciting for a Digital Short in SNL’s first episode back after a long hiatus. Posted on December 4, 2020 December 4, 2020 Written by Anya. — Having Tina bring back her recurring “Women’s News” segment from her Weekend Update tenure is a good way to work the obligatory commentary from her into tonight’s Update. Otherwise, it was yet another episode from this cast that would have been close to unwatchable without Update & the pre-tapes. — Ugh, that whole bit with Tina and Amy singing an altered version of the Mary Tyler Moore theme song during a Condoleezza Rice photo montage was awful, as was Amy’s dumb and unfunny ad-lib afterwards about how she and Tina look like synchronized swimmers in the freeze-frame of them throwing their hats into the air. — Ha, at least Casey gets a sloppy tongue-kissing make-out session with Jason, which is certainly……….something. media favorite Barack Obama (FRA) cruises during debate; Obama Girl cameo, — (*sigh*) Hoooooooo, boy. OPENING MONTAGE Important Moments in Black History was written by Finesse with Lauren Pomerantz and J.B. Smoove which he revealed on Late Night with Seth. — Seth reprises his Brian Williams impression for the first time since Seth was only in his fourth episode on SNL. ), and she’s genuinely very funny with none of the ego trips of her 2013 and 2018 monologues. There’s no sense of joy, no fun in the writing. The bumpers kind of change-up the pacing, but I like the back and forth a lot. The performances aren’t just stereotypical, they’re terrible (Bateman in particular is phoning it in, not that I can blame him). — The apple-eating/knife bit between Tina and Amy was weak, especially Amy’s stupid extended nervous babbling of a cartoonish “Hupupupupup!” Lauren Pomerantz is an American comedy writer who has worked on several TV shows including the MTV Video Music Awards and Saturday Night Live on NBC. Hearing the audience laugh when they first saw her doing a crazy character in the Rock of Love thing made me smile as I wondered how many may not have ever quite known she was a natural in sketches (even though she’d appeared in a number of them as a cast member, of course). I find this comedic premise weak, and basically just a cheap excuse to throw everybody into drag. That character taps into the more deluded aspects of teenagers that make me laugh. — Pretty odd how this Digital Short’s lead role of the grandfather is being played by a completely unknown actor. Lorne Michaels CC (born Lorne David Lipowitz; November 17, 1944) is a Canadian comedian, television producer and screenwriter best known for creating and producing Saturday Night Live and producing the Late Night series (since 1993), The Kids in the Hall (from 1989 to 1995) and The Tonight Show (since 2014).. — I absolutely love Kristen’s deadpan, stern “If you ever interrupt Obama Girl again—” threat to Amy’s Hillary. host & AMP plug Arrested Development so that it won’t be cancelled, — The mentions of Jason Bateman’s Arrested Development co-star Will Arnett being Amy’s husband reminds me that Arnett actually made a cameo in a dress rehearsal sketch from this episode (an award show sketch, I think), but it got cut from the live show. Not that it was anything new for SNL, or most TV, but the image of so many Asian extras having to watch various non-Asian actors doing “funny” voices is excruciating – one of the worst cold opens the show has ever done. We can make our criticisms of that of course, through 2020 eyes, but it was special to me, it set a very high bar for me, and I ended up being very sour toward much of SNL’s content in this area (although I skipped a lot of 93-95 on the original run so for me the bad stuff didn’t start until around 2000).
