There's always talk about how Saturday Night Live isn't funny anymore. Or at least it's not as funny as it used to be. I disagree. I think each episode of the past few years always has something worthwhile. yes, there are stupid things, and they still don't know how to end a sketch to save their lives. But I'm an unabashed fan.
A lot of this has to do with the casting. I think Bill Hader is quite possibly the funniest man on the face of the Earth right now. And thanks to Hot Rod, I find Andy Samberg quite hilarious as well. Plus, he voiced a Space Chimp. The rest of the guys are pretty damn good, and the ladies are brilliant. My crush goes between them all, but Amy Poehler is slowly losing, but only because she carries Gob's seed. But Kristin Wiig and Casey Wilson? I like to imagine erotic pillow fights between them. And somehow a pizza is involved.
I may have said too much.
All the attention towards SNL lately has been about the political content. Due to some election that's happening, I guess. And because a former castmate happens to resemble (a do a deaad on impression) of that Palin chick, who I feel weird adding to the aforementioned pillow fight.
But not everything has to be about politics. Sometimes, they'll have a sketch that's just damn funny.
Bonus points for it actually being live, and not one of the digital shorts, typically the best thing in any given episode.
As an extra added bonus, here's the last time I laughed my nads off at one of their sketches.
