What's with SNL?

Post #1

Post by bluethread »

Just watched SNL 3/5/17. There wasn't one thing funny about it. It was just a series of ad hominem. All of the punch lines, if one can call them that, were predictable and were not based on actual character traits, but partisan stigma. Even the simplest jokes like the Jeff Sessions listing of people who met with the Russian ambassador, might have been funny if they had noted that Pelosi and Schumer met with him, i.e. this guy met with everybody. What about spoofing the hearing that gave rise to this whole thing? The sketch writes itself. Oh yah, they might have to show Franken being, well Franken. Sorry, IMO, these people are hacks. Does anyone find SNL funny anymore?

The last few skits I found funny:
1. The mangled Star Spangled Banner by Maya Rudolph


2. Spoof Rap on "Chronicle of Narnia"


3. The only skit I found with sense of humor about liberal politics

(translated thoughts of a dog turns out to be pro-Trump)

(I also though the white trash couple making fun of redneck romance
was funnier than the Target lady that I never saw any humor in)
