Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Saturday Night Live- Pierce Brosnan/Destiny's Child

    First Saturday Night Live episode! I know. . . It wasn't that bad of an episode. Not the best but certainly will do. Homocil was a funny commercial parody. Best sketch of the episode had to be the "Weakest Link" sketch. It was great because #1 It featured the whole cast as the contestants and host so it was great...It also was just flat-out funny. Favorite part has to be when they asked her why she was so mean (It's true!) and they showed a flashback and her family had to give away one kid and they gave away her and said... "You're the weakest link! Bye-Bye..." Anyway average episode for Saturday Night Live.moreless
  • Saturday Night Live-Season 26...Episode 504- Pierce Brosnan/Destiny's Child

    "Fred Flinstone called...He wants his hair back!" This show is halarious. Will Ferrell...Molly Shannon....Tina Fey....Jimmy Fallon....Chris Kattan....This show is halarious. I don't understand all of the political humor with George Bush and in this case (Daughter bush) but it's till sorta funny. Now the Weakest Link sketch was halarious. When they asked why she was so mean... and then they showed that flashback of her when she was a girl and the family couldn't afford to keep her so she was the "Weakest Link". It was so funny. Saturday Night Live is amazing and if you don't think this show and you will change your mind (I know that sounded really lame!)moreless
