Here's my second review of an SNL episode. It's my other favorite episode from Season three. With Christopher Lee, and musical guest Meat Loaf. Before the show even aired everyone was guessing if Lee could handle what he was about to do, would he or wouldn't he? 101 Dalmatians get ran over by 101 Moving vans will not be seen…
Cold Open: Introducing Kevin Scott
Because John Chancellor was leaving NBC Nightly News, everyone was getting moved up including Belushi, who was moving up to Grizzly Adams. Because of this he had to change his name to a more Hollywood friendly name. A joke that lasted all the way through the show. Another Classic SNL Moment.
Monologue: Bad horror Trailers:
Lee tries to explain he is not just a horror actor, and showed some of his rejected films. My favorite was "Dr. Jekyll, and Mr. Rodgers". It is an underrated parody done by Akroyd.
A speech therapist tries to cure Baba of her speech problem. I believe it was the first time the character was used during season three.
Meat Loaf: All revved up with no place to go:
A classic performance by Meat loaf. Love the intro, as lee prounced his name wrong, " Ladies and Gentleman, Meet Loaf. Oh, I'm sorry Meat loaf!" Weekend Update:
A great edition of WU. The first Point/Counterpoint, as well as the intro of "Jane, you ignorant slut." Kevin Scott talks about talks about oil spills, Bill Murray selects his Oscar picks, as well as bashing John Travolta for canceling his hosting appearance
A little girl is upset about the loss of her dog. And Death comes to visit to apologize about the loss. Larraine Newman almost quit the show if she wasn't in this sketch.
A okay sketch about Anwar Sadat talking about his failures in life.
Weis film: A weird film about a woman killing her boyfriend, while foreigner is playing in the background. Del Sattors Rabbit Hut:
A commercial with Mr. Sattor promoting his new rabbit hut restaurant. A good new addition to the trilogy.
Watergate; A vampire hunter attempts to kill Richard Nixon before he publishes his new book. A great sketch
Richard Beltzer: A performance by beltzer includes jokes about meat loaf, and impersonations.
Meat loaf: Two out of Three ain't bad
Another good performance by Meat Loaf.
The first appearance of Bill during season three. Not that good but he get's better.
Lee thanks everyone, and talks to the cast.
Best: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Rodgers
