I thought this was one of the better shows this season. The variety show skit was pretty good with the highlight being Hammond as Bill Clinton. One of the best SNL impressions, IMO. Also Kenan Thompson was good here too. His strong suit on SNL is impressions and only impressions.
I dont mind Seth on Update solo as he did a great job. Hopefully they dont tinker with Update now that Amy seems to be all but gone.
“Gird Your Loins!” Funny stuff, a long sketch but well structured. Obama Variety Hour was well-executed, too. (Fred Armisen does a very solid Obama, the internet campaign against his casting is absurd) I’ve always thought SNL writing credits should be slipped in at the end of the sketches, or maybe listed on a website. Let the audience know who the dead wood is. I’ll bet only two-to-four writers generate the best material, the rest are college friends and idiot nephews.
The show was a hoot. Finally. I dunno, but maybe having Plain on last week gave the writers some real thoughts regarding politics that actually evolved into funny skits. Maya Rudolph, please come back for good – when you’re on, the quality of the show rises exponentially.
The low point? Chris Martin yelling ‘Barack Obama’ into the microphone after the third set. Yawn.
Only two comments so far?
Funny how quiet an SNL thread is these days when there are no McCain/Palin skits. DHD must not have been picked up by Drudge.
Pretty good ep overall.
This is the only Obama impersonation out there and it SUCKS ASS!
These guys are so afraid to make fun of him it’s disgusting. Come on, he can take it.
And Maya Rudolph whereever you’ve been– go back.
Comments On Deadline Hollywood are monitored. So don't go off topic, don't impersonate anyone, don't get your facts wrong, and don't bore me.
