  • Hit or Miss: Some sketches were okay, others just weren't that funny.

    7.0
    The episode was okay, but nothing exceptionally funny stood out. The Naldo sketch was okay, but, like most recurring sketches, tended to repeat the same lines from the previous sketch. Here, Naldo appeared as an airline baggage checker and made sexual innuendos while lifting the baggage as his fans gathered around. But some of the same jokes and almost identical lines from the previous Naldo sketch were repeated so it was not quite as funny the second time around.



    The "Coalminer's Mountain" movie parody was funny, I especially liked Colman Domingo's impersonation of Morgan Freeman. The "Color Me Reality" sketch was somewhat funny for those who appreciate the skewering of the overdramatization of "reality" shows. It also showcased the show's attempts for more broad-based comedy (a la "Saturday Night Live") that aren't directly focused on GLTB themes.



    The "Anal Breeze" sketch just wasn't funny to me. It seemed kind of forced and didn't seem to go anywhere. It would have been more funny if the "Anal Breeze" lady was embarrassed or humiliated by being outed in public in front of her family, but she seemed okay with it, so what was the point?



    Another bad sketch was the Barbara Bush "pearl necklace" sketch. I didn't get it. I'm guessing the humor was that "pearl necklace" was supposed to be a euphemism for sex. But it wasn't funny at all.



    All in all, it was just okay...moreless

    • Voice Over: In a world where love dare not speak its name, heterosexual Antonio Banderas and straight Edward Norton redefine the word bravery by playing gay.
      Edward Norton: The coal down here is like my love for you - dirty and misunderstood.
      Antonio Banderas (speaking with a thick Spanish accent: Don't tempt me with your taboo love! I am just a simple Hillbilly boy from the Appalachia Mountains.
      Eward Norton: What?
      Antonio Banderas: Apple-a-chian Moun-tains.
      Edward Norton: Huh?

      And in the kind of role Oscar loves, Morgan Freeman shines as a Magical Negro who says wise things.
      Morgan Freeman: Now listen here, you boys have been running from yourselves for too long and now you've done lost the way. Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in your own sunshine. And now, for no particular reason, I'm going to narrate the rest of this film.
      Voice Over: But heterosexual Charlize Theron goes for the Oscar trifecta as a mentally challenged lesbian with a bulbous nose.
      Charlize Theron (slowly): I like cake and hugs!
