'Saturday Night Live' 2011-2012 Season - On NBC HD - Page 3

Tinyballs was a funny rip on Moneyball. I'm betting most people calling it one of the worst episodes of all time didn't watch more than a few minutes of it.

So it wasn't one of the worst. It still wasn't very good. The season opener says they can still rise to the occasion. I wasn't really crazy about the second show either.

I'm not sure why you grouped me in that reply. I didn't say it was one of the 10 worst in 35 years. I said that particular episodes was bad. And I stand by that. It was. I Really enjoyed the season opener, though.

2 parts i liked:

- when they goofed on the rap stuff with the guy & girl....they hit all the phrases/expressions....that is so wack....wut wut.
- the springsteen "storys between songs cds"....thats a good 1.

So Drake is the music guest next week....guess its a lock for that dude to do his Drake impression.

Ben Stiller had several Springsteen sketches on his show that were pretty much like that one. The "Counting with Bruce Springsteen" one always cracks me up.

"What number did I get to?"

ok, those of us who are reasonable people agree that this was not one of the 10 worst episodes ever, but we also agree that the season opener was a great show, the second ep this season was a good show, and this one had more misses than hits.

I have no problem with that assessment, but for all the other posters who go to the absolute negative extreme in stating their opinions about the show, why don't you just not watch it if it causes such a tumultuous emotional reaction from you?

Yeah, it's gotten to the point where, if Wiig is on, I just hit fast-forward. Her character doesn't seem to vary much. Seen one, seen them all.

well they have no other female leads, just supporting female ensemble.

just have her do bits from bridesmaids as everyone seemed to love her in that.

Actually, Nasim Pedrad is very talented, and Abby Elliot is capable of more than the writers give her. Vanessa Bayer is coming along nicely too. It's the males that pose problems.

An OK episode tonight. Weekend Update was good for sure.

Seth needs to understand that Anthony Crispino knows what he's talking about. He and his sources are infallible.

I wish Abby had more roles, she does a great Rachel Maddow. She is so cuuuuuute

I hope they revisit the french dance number.

The "Tell Him" number and the sketch with the fop were funny.

Are you saying the females on SNL are funnier than the males? If so I could not disagree more.

Those were both hilarious. Great showcase for all the women on the show.

IMO the women were funnier than the men in the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler years -- but not currently.

Funnier than the second tier males, absolutely; that was to whom I was referring. I suppose I was unclear.

I think Nassim is as funny as any of the males in the cast.

And Jason Sudeikis. Loved how he was yelling at Andy in the FOP skit, and his reactions as the professor in the Japan skit were great.
post #86 of 580
Nassim is an actor (so is Hader, and, I suppose, Sudeikis); Myers' strength is his writing, and Samberg's his Digital Shorts. I don't recall ever seeing her break, and, what's more, she is a physical comedian of considerable grace. She's the whole package as far as performance goes.

Also... one of the best screamers since Fay Wray.
post #87 of 580
Gotta love it when Vanessa, Abby, and Nasim embellish and do the Kardasjain's.
post #88 of 580
Okay I agree the girls are funnier than the guys except for Bill Hader and Seth Myers and Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis, who you guys mentioned. Oh yeah also except for Fred Armisen, Kenan Thompson, & Bobby Moynihan. Aside from those guys, the girls are definitely funnier. Oh yeah and the new guy Paul Brittain is possibly funnier too. I agree they are definitely funnier than Jay Pharoah.
post #89 of 580
Bobby Moynihan as Snookie from last season still has me splitting my sides.I hope he plays her again this season....
post #90 of 580
Bobby Moynihan is funnier than no one. Kenan is pretty funny.
