  • In this episode, the usually great actress Annette Benning reads lines with no clear enthusiam or character, and Gwen Stefani plays a grating song, as well as the mediocre Akon.

    Judging by the episode summary, you may think I thought the episode was awful. It wasn't awful, it was kind of tolerable, just forgettable. Annette Benning was just plain boring, and while a few skits got some chuckles out of me, such as the teacher-student affair, the "Good Morning, god I hate this town" skit got very boring. It was a very uneven show, and this 32nd season is the worst season ever in SNL history. The season 1 dvd is much funnier, and that was just the show starting out, sure it was shaky, but yet it was much more professional than this season. Other than the Hugh Laurie and Alec Baldwin episodes, this season is painfully unfunny.
