I thought the first half was pretty bad, though I enjoyed the monologue. I thought Tyler Perry was an ok idea and executed really well but just not that funny. I really don't like the j-pop skit. Maybe a little bit the first time and sometimes guests add a bit to it, like Jamie Foxx's no doubt deliberate callback to The Last Dragon. When they came back with another game show skit I was like "oh god no, not another game show" but as soon as they announced it I was dying. Especially since I IMMEDIATELY said "they should have Rupert Everett on there too", so when that happened we were dying.

Charlie Day was great.

For a Martin Short-hosted Christmas episode, that was okay. He was even funny here and there, mostly in the royal OB-GYN sketch.

said it before but sudeikis in what up with that will never fail to remind me that humans have an endless capacity for joy.

Clay, Sunday, 16 December 2012 12:38 (nine years ago) link

felt like i appreciate the episode more because of reading the recent Martin Short profile in Vanity Fair: http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2013/01/martin-short-hollywoods-most-beloved

folks caught sam jackson cursing on "what up", right?

s.clover, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:24 (nine years ago) link

it actually kinda passed me by, my wife had to tell me what just happened

Love Kenan's "That costs money!"

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:27 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I did. I was all "oh Samuel L. Jackson, noooo".

Kenan reacted like a PRO!

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:28 (nine years ago) link

I didn't catch Jackson's follow-up "This is bullshit!" though.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:29 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I picked that up live too.

I missed Carrie's reaction because I was doing the math for two obscenity outbursts in my head.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:30 (nine years ago) link

bar mitzvah kid was good, also.

s.clover, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:30 (nine years ago) link

I believe that the purpose of the gyno sketch was to break Bill Hader. Can't have another Stefon appearance so soon? Translate the same idea to a new setting!

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 16 December 2012 18:36 (nine years ago) link

my fav sketch of the night was the weird 'old friends' thing w/ Martin Short and Fred Armisen -- can easily get annoyed with both of those guys but it was fun to see them play off of each other in a way that utilized each guy's unique weirdness

see if i was someone like SLJ and i was just hanging out at SNL and they wanted to put me in a sketch, i'd drop the f-bomb on purpose, and write a check for whatever the fine would be before even leaving the building

"i was in three star wars movies, keep the change"

Why can't Secret Santa just be openly gay? Hello, it's 2010!

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 16 December 2012 19:21 (nine years ago) link

but don't tell my parents.

s.clover, Sunday, 16 December 2012 19:49 (nine years ago) link

Thanks for posting that VF piece, some dude. Great read.

usually during the xmas episode everyone goes out and skates in the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink; what happened :(

four weeks pass...

http://www.avclub.com/articles/10to1-odds-19-bizarre-sketches-from-saturday-night,91162/

this is kind of a fun article but this will always be the definitive 10-to-one SNL sketch for me: http://snltranscripts.jt.org/97/97pbible.phtml

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 16 January 2013 20:30 (nine years ago) link

god that sketch was bombing with the audience but it was so fucking funny

joint keefs of staff (m bison), Wednesday, 16 January 2013 21:01 (nine years ago) link

oddly i didn't even remember that will ferrell was in that sketch, in my memory it was just tim meadows as a lone shirtless bible salesman. but i do remember catching it at the end of the show and just being like "..."

congratulations (n/a), Wednesday, 16 January 2013 21:06 (nine years ago) link

I had never seen that one, the writing is just totally bizarre.

Here's one with no writing at all, I still bring this up almost 25 years later.

Sailor-neighbor of Chaucer's wife (Tubby) (Dan Peterson), Wednesday, 16 January 2013 21:55 (nine years ago) link

I had never seen this one until someone mentioned it in the comments of that AV Club piece. Sudeikis and Forte always go all in, love those guys.

Gollum: "Hot, Ready and Smeagol!" (Phil D.), Thursday, 17 January 2013 02:44 (nine years ago) link

Ohhh, yeah, the potato chip sketch was a great one. Will Ferrell (and Adam McKay) dominated the 10-to-1 back in the day: the bad doctor sketches, TGI Friday, Ride The Snake.

(hcnuL dlO) * (Old Lunch), Thursday, 17 January 2013 11:12 (nine years ago) link

SNL should seriously put out a 10-to-1 compilation DVD. Those tend to be the sketches I point SNL haters towards.

(hcnuL dlO) * (Old Lunch), Thursday, 17 January 2013 11:15 (nine years ago) link

jesus i'd never seen that. dying!

goole, Thursday, 17 January 2013 18:43 (nine years ago) link

I had to watch it again just to see how many ways Will Forte pronounced "potato." Blake Lively is surprisingly game there, too.

Gollum: "Hot, Ready and Smeagol!" (Phil D.), Thursday, 17 January 2013 18:45 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, as one of the commenters noted, for Lively to not completely break as Forte goes more and more ballistic is really quite something.

Sailor-neighbor of Chaucer's wife (Tubby) (Dan Peterson), Thursday, 17 January 2013 18:55 (nine years ago) link

Also noted, why does NASA look like a used-car salesman's office?

I don't know what's going on in this high school sketch - is it a Glee reference? - but I can't stop laughing at the sound of Hader's voice.

boxall, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:01 (nine years ago) link

every sketch is abt gay ppl / double polo, popped collars or both

johnny crunch, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:02 (nine years ago) link

that said, i would watch the shit outta sopranos jr.

johnny crunch, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:03 (nine years ago) link

the firefighter sketch was sort of great. just letting hader chew scenery.

s.clover, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:04 (nine years ago) link

This skit is terrible.

dan selzer, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:05 (nine years ago) link

ban digital shorts

johnny crunch, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:07 (nine years ago) link

I liked the Rosetta Stone ad.

dan selzer, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:08 (nine years ago) link

kendrick does not sound v good

johnny crunch, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:12 (nine years ago) link

"you're still in philadelphia"

s.clover, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:22 (nine years ago) link

I'm on a dvr delay, so I just now noticed this Lonely Island track in the digital short is built on a Joy Formidable sample.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 27 January 2013 05:40 (nine years ago) link

sadface at Kendrick, he sounded super tired to me

Bel-Air the Fresh Prince, sitting in a chair (DJP), Sunday, 27 January 2013 16:46 (nine years ago) link

i thought this episode (with a few exceptions) had a lot of genuinely funny sketches, and also i thought kendrick lamar (and his band) was super fun to watch. dunno why i am so enthusiastic about it, but i enjoyed it enough to look for this thread and say i liked it.

this customer is a jerk (La Lechera), Sunday, 27 January 2013 17:17 (nine years ago) link

kendrick and the band sounded good by snl sound standards. much better than heyho last week.

Garth Brooks In ... The Life of (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 27 January 2013 17:50 (nine years ago) link

Adam Levine was surprisingly competent. I liked his Nev impression in the Catfish sketch.

Ulna (Nicole), Sunday, 27 January 2013 17:52 (nine years ago) link

Not having seen the Catfish film or show, I assumed it was competent anyway just because it's MTV.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 27 January 2013 18:09 (nine years ago) link

His faux modest beefcake schtick was more palatable (even funny) than I expected it to be considering how unbearable his music is.
