  • Overlooked gem! Affleck is one of the best hosts of the last decade.

    I'm very surprised that this show is reviewed so poorly. I've always considered it one of the best episodes of the show's run. Affleck is great, and the show has few lame sketches. Fiona Apple's dancing is hilariously bad, which only adds to my enjoyment of the episode. Trilocaine is one of my favorite commercials in the history of SNL, but I seem to be the only person who remembers it. Afflecks later hosting episodes are also good, but this one stands out as the best in my opinion. Check it out; it's pretty easy to find a torrent for it online. You won't be disappointed.moreless
