And now for everything that reminds us that Saturday Night Live is never quite as good as we want it to be. Actors impersonating characters During the “Weekend Update” bit several actors appeared as famous SNL characters. Emma Stone impersonated Gilda Radner’s “Roseanne Roseannadanna”, Melissa McCarthy attempted to take on Chris Farley and “Matt Foley”, and Edward Norton almost got there with “Stefon” and Bill Hader. Full Story

Like Saturday Night Live itself, the 40th anniversary celebration show was a mixed bag. Here’s everything that was good. Andy Samberg’s digital short Because they are ALWAYS good, but this one, sung with Adam Sandler featuring an assist from Chris Parnell, highlighted the history of character breaks on the show. Full Story

I understand opening SNL40 with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. It certainly wasn't a surprise though. This is a great example of choosing to give people what they want over what they need. Then again, the idea of a reunion show is a "want over need" situation to begin with. It was to be expected. Full Story

Reversion to the Mean

Girls Season 4 Episode 5 recap Oh man. After the breezy openness that is Iowa, this episode is claustrophobic, empty of any oxygen, and kind of frantic and immobile at the same time. Every time Hannah opens the door someone else is there in her space – it feels like a Sartre play.  I felt awful watching this entire episode. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 10 recap. Oh for Christ’s sake, they invoked the name of the show. I groaned out loud when Rick declared, “We’re the walking dead.” What a ham-fisted handling of Rick & Co.’s shifting emotional state. Of course, this entire episode was like getting bludgeoned in the face with the feelings bat, so I guess it’s fitting that the writers chose now to stop pretending like they’ve heard the word “subtlety”. Full Story
