SNL (s40e15) -- 03/07/15 -- H: Chris Hemsworth -- MG: Zac Brown Band

My wife will be watching this show with me... she's got a thing for Chris Hemsworth (she'd have the reaction as Kate in this first scene):

... and I'll also be watching for the Zac Brown Band (one of my favorite bands):

... Leslie Jones scares me.

Why is he hosting? He has nothing to promote.

I'm guessing he was booked back when his movie 'In The Heart of the Sea' was supposed to open this month, but then the movie got pushed back to December.

Maybe he's getting a jump on Avengers 2.

When it comes to movie stars and excitement about their projects Chris Hemsworth is at the top of my list.

I said the same thing to my wife. As soon as they mentioned the core meltdown I saw the microwave door in the background and started laughing.

I thought this was by far one of the better episodes of the season.

I also thought Hemsworth was "game" for everything they threw at him, I LOL during the space chicken skit, so many things could have gone wrong in that skit. The Avengers Age of Ultron aftermath skit was amusing. Nice to see a musical act with melody in their songs. I don't know how Cecily (and Vanessa) gets through her/their bits with all the disjointed and made-up words.

Chris Hemsworth was game, the rest of the cast and writers were not.

However, we got another porn stars skit.

"What's that thing that you squeeze it and it sprays out?"
"A prostate."

I liked the musical guest. I'm so used to skipping past the musical performances nowadays that when I heard their second song I rewound to go back and listen to the first.

I also liked the "So You Think You can Live with Brian" reality show spoof. Dead on.

Re: SNL (s40e15) -- 03/07/15 -- H: Chris Hemsworth -- MG: Zac Brown Band

Does Zac Brown have a new album with the music they performed last night? That was awesome stuff. Seems like old style Southern Rock is now classified as country. Their performances aside the show was more or less like other recent ones, a dud. Hemsworth was doing the best he could, and did get some legit laughs out of me, but it seemed to be flat, which is pretty much the norm nowadays.
Is there a rule now that all non-black female skits feature either Cecily Strong or Kate McKinnon? They're both easy on the eyes , but they can get annoying ,especially McKinnon, whom I have a feeling is getting a major push . Was she wearing a fake booty during the Iggy Azalea skit ? (Please don't let that become a recurring one.)

Yep, what would have been considered southern rock back in the day would be country today. Zac Brown Band fits that for sure. Same with Keith Urban (Urban is a hell of a guitar player) and many others. And I'm not talking about that shitty Bro Country movement.

The 2 Brothers skit was great when the kid said "his butt is high and perky and yours says 'mine is like for going to the bathroom with and stuff' "

I thought they missed the punchline for the 2 brothers sketch - they should have ended it with hemsworth meeting the other one's girlfriend and her intentionally pretending she didn't notice the difference.

I am glad the host explained where he was from in his monologue. I have never heard of him before.

I liked the Dakota Johnson show better with the ISIS sketch and Ruth Bader on WU.

Yes, I was thinking the exact same thing! Sometimes it amazes me how the writers could miss such an obvious joke.
