Saturday Night Live - Season 44
Disagree on Teen Movie Review. Gardner's expressions and body language are amazing.

Cecily Strong's Susan Collins was extraordinary.

Yeah, Collins was strong. But Bennett’s McConnell was almost too cartoony.

Agreed on Cecily's Collins, and they went the obvious turtle route with Mitch in the open, especially with the lettuce.  But the weekend update joke of, "Mitch McConnell, who always looks like a man watching you slowly drown." killed me.

I completely missed that the lettuce was a turtle joke,

The Emma Thompson episode was an odd duck. She was obviously super game, and they actually had some clever sketches, but weirdly would kind of cut them off just when they were building to something. The Leslie Jones etiquette sketch was sharp ("I'm Meghan's third cousin Shante Thomas of the Compton Thomases. Now show me where the baby at.") brilliant hilarious physical comedy, but they were a beat or two away from having it pay off big. That happened all nite.

Props to Rudd for not breaking when McKinnon started climbing all over him in the time travel sketch.

The “jokes we’ve never seen” bit in update is always good. But the rest of the episode stunk.

Agreed on the joke-trading-on-update bit. I also liked the weird slumber-party sketch, and that Villasenor kept her demon makeup on for the goodnights. But the rest of the ep was indeed a dud.
