that skit had potential but his aloof teenager accent kept shifting into a Mexican cholo accent.

And that Tony Hawk remaster is great too. If they had made this skit a few years ago it would have been about trying to avoid the future where Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 happened

Finally caught up to live. This has been a pretty bad episode so far. Jim Carey’s Biden was awful and there was too much pausing during cold open. The monologue wasn’t even good.

show was meh. more live material than I had guessed, but still a lot of pretaped bits. cold open was awful, usual snl cold opens. WU was good.

along with Maddie Rice apparently having replaced Jared Scharff on guitar, longtime trumpeter Earl Gardner (joined in 1985) appears to be gone, having been replaced by Ravi Best, who got a shot during the goodnights. Whether or not this is permanent, I don’t know.

Thanks to whomever suggested Ted Lasso. I am perfectly happy with Sudeikis being unavailable for this reason.

I only wish I could watch it. But I am not Appling my TV for one show, even if it's based on two hilarious long-form commercials meant to get Americans excited about Premiere League soccer coverage. (An English coworker of mine who dislikes what they call "football" absolutely adored the Lasso bits when I gave her the links to the YouTube videos a few years back.)

Anyway...

... I like Sudeikis' Biden better because of the manic energy he brought to the table. It was a caricature, obviously, but a fun one. "I have a long story about that, and it's problematic. OK, the year was nineteen hundred whoopsidaisy, and...." I love it. Carey seems to be relying on heavy prosthetic makeup to look the part, and he's doing a bit more of a straight-up impression of Biden. It's impressive as an impression, but I prefer Sudeikis' cartoonish version. I will say that Carey wears it better than Woody Harrelson, who like Carey seemed to rely on looks more than bringing anything interesting to the performance. Carey is going full Biden, where Woody was basically smiling with big, fake teeth and giving it the good ol' community college GED program try.

Honestly, I thought the episode was OK. I had several belly laughs, but there were some flat spots. Weekend Update was pretty good, and at least one of the jokes seems like the kind that Michael Che would force Colin Jost to read on the Christmas show.

One death is a tragedy, ten deaths is a statistic. Especially if it saves my job.



Only two laughs of the episode for me were “my mom is married to Kenan Thompson?!” and the RBG “Rest in Power” title card.

Kate Mackinnon doing a little bow was absolutely the worst way to play that. It was the cringiest thing I think I’ve seen on SNL and I watched the entire trump episode.

I'm of the exact opposite opinion. I preferred this than her coming out singing a song on a piano or something.
