This is gonna be a good show. Kieran Culkin is such a little weirdo, you almost can’t miss.

There better be a Succession sketch.

Nicolas Braun could probably be a good host too in the future and looks like he has some comedic chops.

Sheerhan better perform Shivers.

That Trump impression is so good that it's actually not funny - the writing has to do all the work.

The horse skateboard Ska song bit seems like something he would have done when he was 9.

I'm kind of dumbfounded at how dumb that was :lol:

I watched through that horse sketch and realized that I had watched for 45 minutes and in all that time I hadn’t laughed once. I barely even smiled. Fuck this, I am going to bed before I have to listen to Ed Sheehan.

I’m only halfway through and not very good, other than the new guy does a killer Trump.

disappointed that Black Succession with Tracey Morgan was cut. Couldn’t have been worse than some of the shit they’ve had so far.

Not sure what is worse, having to look at Ed Sheeran or having to hear him.

I see Ed Sheeran is still trying to cover up his balding.

Wow, what a horrible episode. The worst was "The Heist". I mean, did anyone watch that before they agreed it was a good idea or even funny? Cecily Strong's clown on Weekend Update was one of the more painful "SNL" moments in quite sometime. Even the stoned studio audience didn't laugh at that. Awful awful awful. The whole damn thing.

Wow am i in some alternate dimension or something? Usually i kinda agree with general consensus of an SNL episode but i found this one surprisingly funny? I found the Men's room skit extremely funny. Also the Spectrum cable thing was quite funny and maybe too true? hah

Maybe cuz i hate political stuff and this episode was very light on it? maybe but i dunno i found it quite funny for once :shrug:

Did they just hire a new CGI department or something?

They clearly addressed a need they had. I don't think he's particularly funny but he's a spot on impressionist.

That Trump impression was excellent.

No Succession sketch? :hscratch:

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at the Spectrum sketch due to its accuracy.

They had one, it was cut for time. Black Succession with Tracy Morgan, Culkin and others.

I loved the Good Morning Rhode Island sketch.

Any sign of the storm?

YES!

Where are the Boy Scouts?

THE SEA TOOK THEM!

I've been cable-free for over a year, but that gave me flashbacks. I still remember the inane arguing about not wanting a landline. It didn't come out to any more money (bundled with cable and internet) but I had zero use for a landline and didn't want the hassle of needing to take time off from work to meet their technician. But the phone rep just wouldn't take no for an answer.

Spectrum: Do you want a landline added for no extra charge?
Me: No
Spectrum: But it's free
Me: No
Spectrum: But it's free!!!
Me: I don't want it. I don't care that it's free
Spectrum: But it's free!!!!!!!!!

:gah:

The Spectrum sketch could be mistaken for an internal training video.

I seem to remember that they make (made) money off of more numbers in their phone book (and of course if you didn't want to be listed it was an extra fee... per month).

Yep. That was spot on for dealing with cableco customer 'service.'

It wasn't a classic SNL outing by a long shot, but I got a few laughs out of it. I even liked "The Heist", if only because I recently had someone in my car who literally had never seen a stick shift before and wasn't even aware it was a thing.

James Austin Johnson's Trump was like a lot of people have been saying, a little eerily too accurate. There were definitely times if you closed your eyes, you wouldn't know it wasn't the real thing.

The only "miss" for me, as in "how did this even get on the air", was the horse racing bit. And that's coming from someone who enjoys ska music and even played in a ska band back in the 90s. That's the key: back in the 90s. 25 year-old Paff would have been bouncing off the walls with that sketch, now it was total cringe.

I liked that horse sketch since it was so silly.

When will it premiere on Disney + :lol:?

The Spectrum sketch was one of the best they did all season. That is how I felt when I wanted to cancel a XM subscription.

WU was funny and that joke about how Native Americans are offended to be associated with Trump since he can't run a successful casino.

The Trump sketch went too long and the Goobers the Clown sketch was not that good though the conservatives hate it.

Ed Sheerhan is not that bad and he has some good songs with catchy hooks.
