I'm officially tired of Scarlett Johansson / Colin Jost references on SNL! When she hosted the show, it made sense that they acknowledge that the two of them are engaged. The joke she had in the monologue about how if the show bombed the worst that could happen is that it would hurt her fiancee - but they don't rely on his paycheck anyway was a great joke. That they chose to make out during the closing credits and remind people they were together again was a little much. Then, this week with Adam Driver hosting they had to throw in another joke about him working with Scarlett therefore he's kind of kissed Jost. Enough! We know the two of them are together. Move on and be funny!
OMG, they brought back Debbie Downer for a corona virus sketch!
I feel asleep after DC's opening which I thought was hysterical with the "Bond" gambling skit.
We watched allot of "HUNTERS" and got to SNL around mid which was (in my mind) actually 1am.
I will watch this week!!!
OT I had read about the OPENING of the new Bond movie earlier. DC mentioned it last night. Actually thought that was a great idea as people may be uncomfortable going to the movies now. So TPTB will wait until the FALL.
I wonder if others will follow suit in waiting on Openings?
We've been using it to teach or chat with our students, but there are lots of security measures we have to take, with good reason. Zoom has been updating its security too, so they're trying. It's become very popular with schools during this crisis, but with extra tight security of course.
It's a lot of fun! Just don't be like "Poor Jennifer" (YouTube) who went to the bathroom forgetting her video was on! LOL
I saw the ad for SNL earlier tonight, and thought it was a mistake! I'm glad to hear they're going to try to go live! yay!
All things considered I think they did a really nice job with this remote episode. They stretched their creativity. I loved that they even did an at home opening where they could have used the pretaped one. It was funny to see some of the characters we’re used to - Kate as RBG and Larry David as Bernie Sanders without the hair and make up. They were also creative getting Alec Baldwin in as Trump without the makeup. Without question I thought the most impactful parts were the tributes to those the cast lost to COVID - Michael Che’s grandmother and Hal Wilner. When Che signed off as Martha’s grand baby I choked up. And all of the stories told about Hal Wilner were great, but the women of the Fey/Poehler/Gastayer era singing Perfect Day was fantastic. To me, those two segments showed what great therapy laughter is, and how much the people involved with this show needed to do this episode.
I am very impressed with all the work they are doing to make these shows work! Pitt was great. And I loved how Kate made different cats out of the same cat! And Keenan had a great show! It was the right time to bring back What’s Up With That - especially since they included Jason dancing!
That grocery store commercial had me in hysterics. The part about substitutions was a bit too close to home. Poor Dasani water That was probably my favorite of the night, or at least it was the one that made me laugh the hardest.
I've never been a fan of the "What's Up With That?" sketches, so I ffwd through it.
It got kind of panned in the articles I read, but I really enjoyed Pete Davidson's music video this week, with cameos from Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider. I also loved Kate McKinnen's sketch with her cat.
Another thing I love about them doing these shows is that years from now when we are through all of this, these episodes will be a time capsule to remind us of some of the things that were reality in this window of time. The zoom sketches, the grocery sketch, the "sports" sketch in the first one, etc - they recap what was top of mind for us right now.
