Find Me On:
Very sad news. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this blog in all its forms for many years now. Thanks to stereogum and one of the viral video compilations, I was brought here back in the day and have been checking it periodically since. A truly unique place on the internet tubes. I hope it can stay in some form.
Oh look. Another sketch where Kyle Mooney just mumbles a lot and talks weird. What in the actual fuck is going on with those sketches?
On a different note, Aidy Bryant is pretty much the best. Dugout. lol.
As for the black history month sketch, oof. I mean, really, is there a joke more overdone than that one? The non LI digital short sketches have all been big misses to me. They should stop doing them.
Good episode though. CVS commercial nailed it.
His only school? What? Make that skill.
Yeah I’m not getting any of the Kyle & Beck stuff whatsoever. In like, it’s not good. I think Bennett is great in the sketches, but man alive, those Good neighbor or whatever bits are just nothing. As far as I can tell, Kyle Mooney’s only school is mumbling and talking weird, including the youtube videos. I’m not sure what I’m missing here.
Everything else though: Very good. Good episode.
Many lolz @ the Alan Rickman impression. Nicely done. I love impressions!
Many consecutive weeks/months/years now of not finding a single thing Jay Pharaoh does remotely funny. almost snickered at the DMX thing, but wait, that was just a thing that actually happened (DMX rapping Rudolph).
OMG look at all the One Direction fans you guys.
I loved Weekend Update as always and the sketch about covers killed me. Especially the Duritz “Yyyyyeahhhh” wail at the end. Classic.
As for the Kimye sketch, yuck. What the hell was that all about? And Lady Gaga’s apple store employee? What? Like seriously, what? That one was a big pile of no.
As simple and silly as it was, the Heshi sketch killed me. Sound effects and pelvic thrusts. Count me in. Same goes for the MTV sketch. “If I get tickled I dump.” Oh man. Giggles.
Couldn’t agree more. They’ve all been quite, quite bad, and have hardly even had any jokes in them. Yuck.
omg not Miley Cyrus’s stupid weird face again! nooooooo! Stop it! jlaksjdf;lkjas;lkjfs.
Blah. A dud of an episode, despite the cold open that I agree was pretty spot on, if not brief.
What I thought could have been a pretty decent sketch with the Military briefing room was made painful by Bruno just mumbling and tripping over every one of his lines while clearly reading the cue cards. Ooof. The timing was so off and the entire thing was just a grind. It seemed like he just showed up for the show 10 minutes prior without a bit of rehearsal. Speak up bro! Enunciate!
Weekend Update was still great, per usual. The Barber shop sketch was painful, and as far as I can tell Jar Pharaoh’s go to move is simply repeating or making annoying sounds before he talks. Good joke bro. Funny.
This episode did very little for me. The monologue was pretty brutal as well, and seemed to just abruptly end, because it had nothing else left. Bring on Edward Norton and let’s move past this one.
Add me to the list of people who couldn’t enjoy the sketches with Cyrus in them because she is just too repulsive. Blech. I don’t care how well she remembers her lines. Ew. That stupid tongue.
Loved Mornin’ Miami and Weekend Update, again!
I also, man alive do I love Bobby Moynihan and Kate McKinnon. Cecily Strong is fantastic as well. Yay strong cast members!
I’m still waiting for Jay Pharaoh to do something even remotely funny that isn’t a telegraphed impression, which even those he somehow seems to make awkward and unfunny. Enough of this guy.
Poor thing must have been really shaken up by the time she got to Oh Canada, because she resorts to using some nonsensical gibberish language just to get through with the whole thing.
Phew. I thought this post was going to be a NDT take down, but it wasn’t, so I’m happy. Phew I say.
omfg, that Acupuncture sketch was so beyond over the top and so fantastic. Wow. Many lolz.
I thought the Martha Stewart commercial was pretty fantastic.
And yes, I was very skeptical of the first Darrell’s house sketch, but oh man, what a payoff. Great stuff.
Nope. I couldn’t give a fraction of a shit. I just find internet outrage, especially about showbiz and celebrities, grade A hilarity. You’re mistaking amusement with outrage.
Last time I checked being rich and successful isn’t some societal and cultural red flag that prohibits you from living in the same world everyone else does, despite what your caps lock key might suggest. Don’t like what the rich guy is doing? Then don’t give him money for his project. Other people want to though, because they like what he does. What on Earth is wrong with this? If anything it’s removing any middlemen and allowing consumers to directly influence what gets produced.
The studio system is bullshit. This isn’t news. Of all mediums, film and television are a couple of the worst when it pertains to preserving an “artist’s” vision, whether you consider Mr. Braff an artist or not. You’re essentially telling someone how to do their job, and also telling fans how to spend their money.
I don’t know about this other viral video nor do I see what it possibly has to do with this.
Faux outrage! RARRRRRR. So mad!!!
“Preying” on his fans. lol. Give me a fucking break. It’s a completely voluntary thing. People are adults. If they want do it, cool. Just because you clearly don’t like the guy and the fact he is successful doesn’t make this double standard any less ridiculous.
For the record: I don’t love the guy either, or his movies, but who gives a shit. I just won’t donate or go see them.
I cannot stop laughing at his first sentence and the look on his face when he finishes it. He’s all “YEP. THAT WAS A GOOD SENTENCE.” It reminds me of the Miss South Carolina maps flub. Just great, great, nonsense. Top comedy.
How did they videotape one of my nightmares?
Wow. I only watched the videos linked here, but umm, those were all very bad. I think the LL Cool J bit was the best, but the rest, ooof.
omg the Moet & Chandon commercial. What a winner that is. The Crystals one was great too, but yes, many lols for that. Well done kids.
Jay Pharoah cold open = Ugghhhhh.
It’s good, honest music, with a really talented performer writin’ and singin’ the tunes. I agree, that their explosion onto the scene has been surprising given the style of music, but I like what they’re doing.
For real on Pharoah. I signed in just to ask why is he on this show? He is such a one trick pony, and that one trick is a bad trick. No more. Stop.
