Am I the only person who doesn't find zillow-surfing or looking at random homes on websites fun or entertaining? That sounds miserable and a huge waste of time to me. Is it something women and gays like to do, is that the joke?

I don’t think I have ever just leisurely surfed Zillow. Only if we are sorta looking at specific houses that might be for sale, but that’s it. 
 

ETA that I thought he was hilarious. Monologue sucked, but yeah it was the writing. I see where they wanted to go, but meh. 
 

my favorite was probably the men’s cosmetics commercial. I think I read that it was cut from the final show, but I watched it on YouTube.

i missed the cold open, but there were crickets during the impeachment jokes during WU...i literally think it was too soon lol 

Regina King is funny. i've never seen her in a comedy, she's got good timing.

She's amazing not in the Scary Movie series . Back-to-back SNLs where the hosts commit to the sketches, after Krasinski surprisingly just kind of showed up. Makes a huge difference.

She was also excellent in Southland. Very underrated series overall.

You mean Regina Hall? Was that part of the joke a couple weeks ago?

It was a subpar W/U for sure, as has been the case for many weeks lately which is strange given all the parody material with which they have to work.  

She was a great host, committed to every sketch.  But writing sucked as usual as did the cast-written sketches/pre-records

I didn’t care for last night’s episode, I thought it was really weak. Even my favorite part Weekend Update was not good. 

Yeah, it sucked.  Felt like Regina Hall could've been funny as shit and was wasted with bad writing.

no idea who the host was...but he also committed 100%. 
Texas featured a bunch...and everybody hates Ted Cruz
WU was better this week. 
 

Watch Bridgerton. He popped on screen last night, and my wife couldn’t help but wax poetic for a good half hour about how he is easily the sexiest man alive.

I’d have argued with her if I could. That dude has it going on, and I’m guessing he ain’t hurting for dates. And he owned it and had fun with it, which actually made for a decent episode.

But the fact that they did 78 different jokes about Cruz...that was good.

Another good show IMO. The final sketch, with Jonas and McKinnon flirting at the bar, is one the SNL haters would probably make exhibit A why the show is awful, but it's exactly why I still love it. Not the funniest sketch of the night or anything, but it's just silly and uncomfortable and the cast doesn't care, they have fun with it.

Loved the Kubrick bit was great.  Always liked Maya but she was woefully underutilized.  One of the great all-around talents and writing was just garbage for her this week.  RPM is right about W/U.  Maybe the best joke of the year was the bit about not knowing the difference between kissing and assault and then the whole last half of Update was just awkwardly unfunny.  

I have high hopes for Daniel Kaluuya next week, seems like he's got some range.  Two weeks from now it's Carey Mulligan whom I've never understood the fascination with.  She appears to have 3 settings:  Mopey, Brooding, and Broodingly Mopey.

i kept saying the GF, "they've been off for 4 weeks and this is the best they can come up?"  cold open was bad.  monologue was bad.

Beyonce Hot Wings and Boomers got the vax were brilliant.  i didn't see the Kubrick skit so i'll need to check that out.  everything else was underwhelming.

Never heard of Kaluuya before but he was a great host. They gave Gaetz no quarter.

 

Damn, you never watched "Get Out?"  Or more recently "Judas and the Black Messiah?" 

He's a great actor and those were great movies.  The latter is currently on HBO Max.  Not sure about "Get Out."

i couldn't tell you why but the Titanic Iceberg on WU seriously cracked me up 😂😊

Best sketch of the night.

W/U, and that Iceberg bit in particular, were damn funny.  The wartime correspondence and lesbian period piece (which I think were back to back IIRC) were laugh out loud for me.  First half of the show was awful except for a few minutes of that teenage nerd crush sketch.  Looks like they're taking several weeks off again before the last run in May.

I don’t understand the SNL cast sneering at Elon Musk hosting the show this week. SNL has a problem that they think more of themselves than they should. They definitely don’t bring business people as hosts very often but is it really any different than when a sports figure hosts?

with that being said, I don’t think Elon will be that good of a host but the success is more dependent on the writers not him.
