SNL: Brie Larson and Kyle Mooney Are Every Headbanger You Knew in High School

by Britt Hayes May 8, 2016 @ 8:37 AM
Not only did Kyle Mooney’s sketch actually make it to air this week, but he finally gave us another update on the life of Chris Fitzpatrick, aka every high school kid you knew who was into Nu Metal and rap-rock. So what’s Chris up to now? He started a metal band over the summer with a couple of his equally obnoxious friends, and they want to crowd-fund their new homemade action flick, Johnny Shadow.

SNL Releases Peter Dinklage’s Full ‘Space Pants,’ Because You Needed It

by Kevin Fitzpatrick April 20, 2016 @ 11:51 PM
SNL has had only a moderate April, between hosts Peter Dinklage, Russell Crowe and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but fans can easily agree on at least one gem: “Space Pants.” Were there further need to settle the debate, SNL has obliged with full-length rendition of the interstellar track, Gwen Stefani and all.

SNL Delivers a Brilliantly Goofy Satire of Faith-Based Dramas With ‘God Is a Boob Man’

by Britt Hayes April 17, 2016 @ 9:54 AM
Maybe a better title for this fake trailer for a fake faith-based drama would be God's Not Gay, but you can see how that one might have been a bit too risky. In the one sketch that didn't feature guest host Julia Louis-Dreyfus, SNL offers this hilariously silly satire of movies like God's Not Dead (okay, mostly just that movie alone), complete with Lifetime Original movie production values and melodramatic courtroom scenes.

SNL and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Revive Elaine Benes for the Democratic Debates

by Britt Hayes April 17, 2016 @ 9:39 AM
You can’t have Julia Louis-Dreyfus host SNL without at least some reference to her Seinfeld past — especially when you bring Larry David back to reprise his role as presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. In this week’s debate-themed cold open, Sanders and Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton indulge in their usual caricature shenanigans and cartoonish sparring, this time with cameos from a couple of beloved sitcoms of NBC’s past.

SNL and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Help You Start the Day Right With Heroin AM

by Britt Hayes April 17, 2016 @ 9:28 AM
In an episode that was filled with sketches that were mostly just okay and had a weirdly upper middle-class theme, there was one such sketch that satirized suburban living beautifully. SNL introduces Heroin AM, a product for the busy parent who needs that kick of heroin without the danger of falling flat on their face in public.

SNL Ranked: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Better Material, Yada Yada Yada

by Britt Hayes April 17, 2016 @ 9:11 AM
It’s been six years since Julia Louis-Dreyfus hosted SNL, but with her hilariously irreverent HBO series Veep entering its fifth season, it’s about time for the former cast member / Seinfeld star to make her return. After poking fun at her forgettable SNL tenure in the monologue, it’s unfortunate to see Louis-Dreyfus given so many forgettable characters in sketches that are mostly vanilla and that feel written for a target demographic made up entirely of suburban women with Activia dependencies. That said, the usual wacky antics of the last 15 minutes combined with the undeniable greatness of Louis-Dreyfus and the occasional moment of hilarity save this episode, taking it from a four up to a solid six.
