tomvejada Andouille Since: 2.1.02 Since last post: 4039 days Last activity: 4039 days # 1 Posted on 19.5.03 0611.24 I liked the cold opening, though it would've been better if Tracy Morgan got to say "Live from New York." I didn't care for the monologue. I actually enjoyed the Rialto Grande skit. This week's TV Funhouse was alright, but it was the weakest one of the season. I'm not a Chris Kattan fan but the thing he did on Update was good. Also liked Chris Parnell's cameo, too. I liked Jeff's David Letterman impression, although Norm's was better. The Dog skit was weird but funny. Funniest part of that was the "butt-sniffing outside" joke. The Sam Elliott commerical was very old-school. Funny as hell. It would've been nice if that had one of those songs with Kattan, Tracy, Horatio, and Jimmy, but I guess it was cut due to time. Overall, another very funny SNL. Dan Aykroyd was a very good host.

But like the rest of the season, it was weak. The TV Funhouse was espcially disappointing. Hardball was hilarious, but other than that just the usual crap.

Some skits had some great potential, but the punchlines just didn't deliver. What a disappointing season overall. Will's departure definitely hurt. I also think Ana's departure left a void in the "versatile female" area. Maya, Rachel and Amy just don't have it yet. (at least on a consistent basis) They should have had Goodman play Drunk Girl.

tomvejada Andouille Since: 2.1.02 Since last post: 4039 days Last activity: 4039 days # 4 Posted on 19.5.03 1737.23 I think Amy's the best female in SNL. As for Drunk Girl, that and Baby K suck. Jeff should stick to impressions because those are what he's good at. I also think that once Darrell Hammond leaves, Jeff will be the top impressionist in SNL.

I may be wrong, but I always thought that it was because it was before the opening credits were shown. Can anyone confirm?

Yep, because the audience is coming in "cold", with no prior warning that a new show is starting. Like on Raw when we see someone in the parking lot before the titles. "And you've been so busy lately, that you haven't found the time, To open up your mind, And watch the world spinning, gently out of time."
I thought of 4 sentences last night which might or might shed more light on this and seems to bear Excabilur out. Here they are without explainations. 1a) I am an employee of IBM 1b) I am a worker for IBM 1a) I am an employee for IBM 1b)
