    What a messy, uneven show it was last night. Adam Levine was no Jen Lawrence – he still can’t act, in addition to being unable to sing. And did we really need Andy Samberg back again? I was so used to him no longer polluting the show with his creepy presence.

    Speaking of polluting the show, in two weeks a certain fungus (whose name has been invoked on the interwebs way too many times to count) will be doing the same. I am seriously dreading that night. Oh well. It can’t possibly get any worse. I hope that the next show after that will be much more better. Tina Fey and Green Day, perhaps? Steven Pasquale and Adele?

    SNL has been on a roll lately.

    it seems like Saturday Night Live is on a roll every week according to these press releases. Perhaps if I didn’t see the same spin every single week they might seem more believeable…

    SNL was pretty unfunny for much last night’s show. Adam Levine might appeal to the ladies, but he is kind of underwhelming as a singer and even less impressive as an actor.

    My biggest beef with the show was the MLK skit. While I know where the writers were going with material and the point they were trying to make, it came off as offensive. Can’t people ever leave icons along without trying to dumb them down to our sadly pedestrian era where all of life seems to revolve around various ablutions of the body, mostly those of the scatological or sexual varieties. This great American had moral courage and stood up against the worst of social wrongs. Hearing him voiced by the chubby black guy from SNL as some lecherous old man with the same vapid obsessions with our disposable public culture as your average teenager was just wrong in my view.

    SNL was pretty offensive and terrible once again. Adam Levine’s gay character at the beginning was the worst. He has a gay brother and has no idea what might be offensive to gay people? Shame on SNL and Adam for that.

    Totally disagree, thought it was one of the best shows of the season. Loved all of the guests.

  • Music Man

    I have to assume that you are a die-hard fan of Adam’s, Elizabeth. It was absolutely awful. And that is being gentle.

    It’s not your fault. It’s just being love-blind. I like his music too, but holy hell he was awful on SNL.

    Awwww…. Fulllll……..

    No, not a Levine fan, just loved a lot of the sketches.

    I think people just like to complain about SNL, if I laugh out loud four times during a show I think of it as a success. Rarely, do I laugh out loud at ANY sitcoms, just my opinion.
