    was easily the best one of the season

    Huh. When this show started out, I was sure it was on track to join the Martin Short and Jennifer Lawrence shows as one of my faves for the season. But starting with the “Djesus Uncrossed” bit, it really started going downhill. I didn’t like that one too much, although it did have one thing going for it – the fact that it really felt like something Tarantino would do. The whole time I kept saying to myself, “Stop tempting God! And also, stop tempting Tarantino!”

    After that…meh. Seriously, did they really have to not only put Fred Armisen in drag (again!!!!!) but also have him present a most unlovely panty shot? I bet that segment alone was enough to cause violent evacuations of people’s stomach contents. At least the final sketch made up for the problems of most of the second half. That, and Alabama Shakes. A spot-on musical recommendation by the Sarah and Vinnie show, which is a very rare thing to see.

    Alabama Shakes was excellent. Christoph Waltz was not. If you think this was one of the best of the season, you’re delusional. Probably the worst. In years.

  • Lena

    I heard a nasty filthy rumor that they still make Saturday Night Live, what an awful, awful thing rumor to spread.

    The Jesus Unchained was one of the most daring comedy bits that I’ve seen in YEARS. Hats off.

    This one was not on par with Beiber or Levine. It was more like the one with Jennifer Lawrence, unfortunately
