SNL: 38.14 – Kevin Hart & Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

After last week’s episode was so strong, I figured there would be a bit of a lag this week, and I was right. However, Kevin Hart still made the show entertaining with his earnest efforts and high energy. The show kicked off with a typical politically themed cold open, and it started so slow that … Continue reading SNL: 38.14 – Kevin Hart & Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

SNL: 38.13 – Christoph Waltz & Alabama Shakes

After the “let’s just get through this” host that was Justin Bieber, I was really looking forward to this week’s SNL with Christoph Waltz. There’s just something about real actors coming to do the show that makes it worth sitting through the teen idols. Waltz did not disappoint, at all. The cold open was quite … Continue reading SNL: 38.13 – Christoph Waltz & Alabama Shakes

SNL: 38.12 – Justin Bieber

Let the record show, I was not looking forward to this episode. At all. But I told myself I’d go into with an open mind. Sadly, my hater attitude won out in the end and I was just not that impressed with Justin Bieber’s turn at SNL host. Thankfully there were a few moments that … Continue reading SNL: 38.12 – Justin Bieber

SNL: 38.11 – Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar

Adam Levine is no stranger to SNL. Actually I think he is the first person to appear as a musical guest (on the Jeremy Renner episode with Maroon 5) and host in the same season. As is often the case with hosts who are familiar to the show, the writers step up their game and … Continue reading SNL: 38.11 – Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar

SNL: 38.9- Martin Short/Paul McCartney

Whatever your feelings on Saturday Night Live (although I assume if you are here reading a review of SNL you are indeed a fan), there is no denying that it is a part of our culture, both entertainment and current events wise. Very often those two worlds collide and it falls on the shoulders of … Continue reading SNL: 38.9- Martin Short/Paul McCartney

SNL: 38.4 – Christina Applegate/Passion Pit

After last Saturday’s horrific outing, I spent the week placing offerings at my shrine to the great Colin Quinn in the hopes that it would pay off with a better episode this week. I wasn’t even asking for it to be good, just that it didn’t suck donkey balls. Man, my house smelling like a pothead’s … Continue reading SNL: 38.4 – Christina Applegate/Passion Pit

SNL: 38.3 – Daniel Craig/Muse

Well I’m really glad that the last episode of SNL, hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was good because this week it was just awful. I don’t know that awful is even strong enough a word for how bad this episode was. Usually I make two lists; one of good sketches, and another of bad sketches. This week … Continue reading SNL: 38.3 – Daniel Craig/Muse
