  • Mediocre ep featuring Will Ferrell at his laziest but at least Green Day saved the day.

    I didn't really find this ep as funny as other eps this season. It's sad that SNL started out this season with a bang (Tina Fey as Sarah Palin) and ended on a whimper. Will Ferrel was not funny. From his opening monologue to the final sketch, it was one long snoozefest. Now matter how many surprised guest appearances there were (Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Tom Hanks, Artie Lange, Norm McDonald, Anne Hathaway, Paul Rudd, etc.), bad writing and bad acting = not funny. Even the Weekend Updated was a dud and Amy couldn't pull it out, although it was good to see her again. The only saving grace of the whole ep was Green Day's two performances - "Know Your Enemy" and "21 Guns". They rocked the house down.
