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.

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.

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

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.

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.

this customer is a jerk (La Lechera), Sunday, 27 January 2013 18:12 (nine years ago) link

I was sad when he dissed Kara's Flowers. ;_;

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 27 January 2013 18:14 (nine years ago) link

Levine seemed to have the right comic persona, but pauses in his line delivery made some sketches awkward

Garth Brooks In ... The Life of (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 27 January 2013 18:20 (nine years ago) link

I didn't even realize Catfish was a parody. I was also upset Adam dissed Kara's Flowers. Soap Disco! That was a fun song.

Michael F Gill, Sunday, 27 January 2013 19:05 (nine years ago) link

"Poetic Justice" sounded great but that's my least favorite song on the album

Bel-Air the Fresh Prince, sitting in a chair (DJP), Sunday, 27 January 2013 19:23 (nine years ago) link

The Nev from Catfish impersonation was dead on and hilarious

Loved this. This character should be the next SNL movie, just Hader yelling "SHUT UP!" in that voice for 90 minutes.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Sunday, 27 January 2013 19:52 (nine years ago) link

sax on "Poetic Justice" was like, awww yeeaaahhhh

This skit is terrible.

― dan selzer, Sunday, January 27, 20

I'm with Dan on that one. All the gay character skits were middle school humor formulaic.

curmudgeon, Sunday, 27 January 2013 23:14 (nine years ago) link

yeah, some of those skits seemed irresponsibly bad to me.

Garth Brooks In ... The Life of (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 28 January 2013 00:48 (nine years ago) link

i agree in general that snl's gay stuff is fairly offensively dumb usually, but at a certain point it seemed like the firefighter sketch stopped being a sketch and started turning into like avant-theatre absurdity.

s.clover, Monday, 28 January 2013 00:53 (nine years ago) link

so this MLK Jr sketch was horrid even by right-wing comedy writer standards?

saltwater incursion (Dr Morbius), Monday, 28 January 2013 19:39 (nine years ago) link

this week finally embarrassed even u guys huh

saltwater incursion (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 10 February 2013 06:33 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, terrible episode.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 10 February 2013 06:51 (nine years ago) link

will look prescient when Beebz stars in the next has-been Broadway revival of Grease in 2024 tho.

saltwater incursion (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 10 February 2013 06:56 (nine years ago) link

(I saw some of it w/out sound in a gay bar)

saltwater incursion (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 10 February 2013 06:57 (nine years ago) link

The fucking Californians...I can't recall any other recurring sketch in this show's history that has actually made me angry with its consistent awfulness.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Sunday, 10 February 2013 06:58 (nine years ago) link

my father asked me if Christopher Dormer had an opinion on SNL's decline.

Cunga, Sunday, 10 February 2013 07:02 (nine years ago) link

Worst ever. Yuck.

schwantz, Sunday, 10 February 2013 09:10 (nine years ago) link

Bieber looks like a dying kid getting a visit in the hospital. From some old lesbian named Lauren Michaels.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 10 February 2013 14:21 (nine years ago) link

didn't think this was nearly as terrible as y'all. I've definitely seen worse, even this season. It helps if you just fast-forward through Californians.

I liked the Real Housewives thing, Corey, the one black guy that's in every commercial was great. There were a few other ok bits, the Grease skit was good.

dan selzer, Sunday, 10 February 2013 18:59 (nine years ago) link

I agree that it wasn't the worst ep this season. Bravo thing and Corey both solid (some of the best characters show up in weekend update). I even laughed at the horrible 'glice' skit in the end. The Californians is the new What's Up With That in that it appears in every show. I'm tired of the Californians, but the original was one of my favorites so I can deal with them milking it.

that Django got me Nuages (Sufjan Grafton), Sunday, 10 February 2013 20:25 (nine years ago) link

I'd rather watch a 90-minute loop of Sudeikis' What's Up With That dancing than two minutes of The Californians.

Glice was good, though, as was the Grease sketch.

Tarfumes The Escape Goat, Sunday, 10 February 2013 21:36 (nine years ago) link

miley cyrus and ellen impersonations are like the same voice.
