Decent show last night. Some stinkers, as is to be expected, but the send-offs to Fred Armisen and Bill Hader were great. Stefon's wedding had everything: puppets in disguise, Mennorah the Explorer, Anderson Cooper, Churfs, and human traffic cones. I saved the show on the PVR so I can go back and look for all the callbacks I missed the first time out. And Armisen's farewell with all the indie rock icons that I know nothing about was just a really nice moment.
I assume Jason Sudekis is sticking around, at least for part of next season?
As for the other skits, there were a lot of one-joke wonders, but at least they weren't repeats. And we also got the girls that aren't porn stars anymore, which is one of the few recurring bits I'm not tired of yet.
There will be no Will Smith in the sequel. The film answers that, explaining that Smith’s character was promoted to Colonel in 2007 but died shortly after as a result of complications in testing out the first alien hybrid fighter.
