Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Worst Episode of the Season

    Poor Josh Brolin. Now that the season is nearing its end it seems the writers are completely running out of steam. It was already apparent in last weeks episode. I was hoping SNL would bounce back, like they often do after bad episodes, but sadly that was not the case.

    I would say Josh Brolin is a very talented man, but nobody could have saved some of these sketches (The Californians, The Slow-Mo Hallway). The only time I actually laughed was during Weekend Update. Let's hope they have some good material for Eli Manning, because he needs it.

    PS: Taran Killam is becoming the MVP for me.moreless
  • 2nd Time's Not a Charm

    I agree, Josh Brolin did not reach his full potential. He was better the first time he hosted, but I don't blame him. I think the writers didn't come up with anything for him. A couple of chuckles with "The Californians", Taran Killam's portrayal of Piers Morgan and Gotye was a worthy musical guest....but other than that the episode fell flat.
