I have a special countdown article planned for either tomorrow or the day after. Something video game related. In the meantime, Taters and I have been in the middle of an argument. This skit from this week’s Saturday Night Live: funny or not?

I think it’s hilarious.

  1. Gavin, the only thing worse than that sketch was the musical act.

  2. Saturday Night Live is like purgatory for funny people.

  3. I thought the impressions were solid but the comedy was not.

  4. What Syrg said.

    Mind you, I’m more than happy to watch good impressions even if they don’t lead to much in the way of punchlines. So it could have been much better, but I enjoyed it anyway.

  5. I thought that sketch was brilliant, personally.

  6. The sketch was really funny. It managed to deviate from the traditional impression-marathon snl formula (seen in the Blue Ivy) sketch by having a definitive tone to all of the interactions. I would have switched the Stephen King prank with the Cornell West one to maintain pacing.

  7. Ultimate Comics X-men started off surprisingly okay, but it’s gotten really weird now, like it’s trying to catch up to how bad the original UXM got. I suppose Loeb left the door open with what he did with the Scarlet Witch, but I’m going to hold out hope that some other reality warper is behind this nonsense. Always fancied that Magician would be a proper fit for Ultimate Beyonder, but maybe he’s off being a pro-active Superboy Prime, trying to make the X-men rad again after Ultimatum.

  8. It’s impossible for anyone to clean up Jeph Loeb’s mess. IMPOSSIBLE.

    That sketch is awesome.
