Digital Short: When Will the Bass Drop?
Not a classic, but it’s nice to have a head-exploding GIF not from Scanners.
I currently only have two items on my SNL Wish List for Next Season: 1) no more Deirdre, and 2) no more sketches where the punchline is “kissing.” I hate bagging on something with Paul Rudd and Bill Hader, but like “The Californians,” the Kissing Family is so much funnier to the cast than it is to viewers; it’s an inside joke we’re not cool enough to understand. Congratulations to McKinnon and Taran Killam, though, for being the only current cast members invited to the super-secret club, though.
Kimye Talk Show
Farewell, Nasim Pedrad. You were always one of my favorites, and I wish you had gone out on something stronger than the Kimye Talk Show, with the one big laugh coming from not something anyone said, but the picture of Kanye’s wedding outfit. Here’s hoping you’ll have more to do on Mulaney.
I want 2 Chainz to be my fist-pumping hype man RIGHT NOW.
“The Ex-Pornstars” has been a favorite since the first time they banged their way onto my television screen, but “Bvlgari” was the final sketch of the season, and everyone had clearly already mentally checked out. Including Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dong. Not one for the highlight reel.
I love St. Vincent, and think she’s one of the best live performers around right now, but her shtick doesn’t really work on SNL. Moving around like a high fashion robot works as part of a larger concept, but not in single song doses. Don’t let her stiff performance dissuade you from checking out her music, though — she knows how to shred.
