    "Woody Harrelson. 2014

    5.5

    By norinedegraaghowes, Jan 04, 2015

    Was just watching it and found it in very poor taste when they spoke of green house effects to the earth. Then had a polar bear standing on a small piece of ice and then yell out sooner. The whole show made me gringe nothing like the old Saturday night live"



    is more offensive than the word association between Chevy Chase and guest Richard Pryor in the Job Interview:



    ...........



    Chevy: "Negro?"



    Rich: "Whitey"



    Chevy: "Tar baby"



    Rich: "Ol Fay"



    Chevy: "Colored?"



    Rich: "Red Neck!"



    Chevy: "Jungle Bunny"



    Rich: "PECKERWOOD"



    Chevy: "Burr Head!"



    Rich: "CRACKUH!"



    Chevy: "Spear Chucker"



    Rich: "White Trash!"



    Chevy: "JUNGLE BUNNY!"



    Rich: "Honky!"



    Chevy: "SPADE!"



    Rich: "Honky-honky!"



    Chevy: "NIGER"



    Rich: "DEAD Honky!"

    the skit rails off from there



    SO which is more offensive to you? Something from the good Ol days of SNL or a little Global Warming piss?



    And, way off the mark here: "Michael Che's smug, angry black-man demeanor " smug? angry? Not once does he portray these traits, wow.moreless

    The fact that they have (SNL) gone into the pool of dumpster juice at the bottom of the dumpster for humor by using ISSI as a back drop is by definition vulgar to say the least. What do you think all those effected by ISSI are feeling. Humor at others expense specially when that expense is the horrible loss of a loved one is not humor, it's cruel. SNL you have lost your way and for the length of time a large number of persons have been waiting for the return of real entertainment without realization, My opinion is you will never get it back.moreless

  • Really????? What's Up Wit Dat?

    1.0
    I remember when the show was actually funny. I now cringe as the guests try to make a Boy Scout camp skit funny. Trouble is Boy Scouts are funnier. Maybe they could have TIna Fey come in a do a continuing ed program for the writers.

    My wife said don't just complain----write something yourself. I did, and its funny, but it could never get to Lorne. Maybe he thinks the show is still funny.moreless
