I hope Miley performs Midnight Sky but they never fulfill my requests and probably get this

I'm guessing Elon smirks and laughs his way through the whole thing.

Man, Musk really wants to be Tony Stark as portrayed by Robert Downey Jr..

The one thing I hate is seeing someone enjoy themselves on a comedy show!

Musk and his Fremont plant got busted for air quality violations and settled for $1 million

Now I have to worry about Covid,Wildfires, and Elon Musck and how they will affect my breathing and life span.

Well, Musk did a lot better during his monologue that I was expecting. I also liked the cold open with Miley singing. With each cast member and their mom. I've never see Miley's mom before. Damn, she's beautiful!

The Mare of Easttoen parody made me chuckle, but I’m guessing if you don’t watch it and the discussion of the accents it probably was a dud.

Murder Durder was spot on.

They had three separate pieces/sketches with jokes about people being cousins in the first half hour.

Seems like that Ooli sketch only existed to give Kate someplace to do McDormand and Melissa a chance to do her Bjork.

I've always liked the Mothers Day show. The jokes are a hit or, usually, a miss but it's fun to see them interacting with their moms.

Steven Seagal was a better host

This had to be one of the worst episodes of the season and I liked most of them so far in 2021.

At least Keegan will save them next week.

Side note. I finally got around to reading "A Very Punchable Face" by Colin Jost. If you're looking for something hilarious to read, I highly recommend it. I laughed out loud many times. He's such a clever writer.

Musk having Asperger's explains a lot.

Kyle Mooney's only 5' 7" and he towers over his mom, and later you see all the mom's tower over her. She's gotta be 4' tall max.

Murder Durder was funny. The rest - not so much.

I noticed that too. Was it some kind of inside joke?

There's some SNL cast members who are definitely not adopted; they're dead ringers for their moms. Heidi Gardner and Melissa Villasenor were immediately noticeable.

I dug the Nintendo courtroom sketch, although like too many SNL sketches they had no idea how to finish it, trotting out Pete Davidson as Andrew Cuomo. Really liked the judge pounding the gavel on the mystery box, and the dick pic with appropriate sound effect

I had very low expectations. Musk was a lot better than I though he would be.

The Murder Durder sketch had me laughing out loud as a viewer of Mare of Easttown and as someone from Southeastern PA.

Apparently some cast members needed safe spaces. https://www.themix.net/2021/05/snl-c...jPPypIiHyFM2WA

That article title makes no sense, it brings up a thing about safe spaces then drops it when it's time to explain itself. Worked though, I clicked on it (It's the exact same story thats been floating around all week with a more bitter tone.)

But yeah most of the cast members were down for Musk's appearance, especially when Lorne bought dinner for Musk and everyone else. Then again, there are few people I wouldn't take free Keens from

Just for sake of accuracy, which is sorely lacking in discussions of issues like these, that article does NOT say that any cast members NEEDED a safe space.

Dude needs to cut that hair. It's awful. And while the sketch itself was unfunny, McKinnon's impersonation of France McDormand was a home run. I busted out laughing.
