This sketch — which kicked off the episode — wasn’t the funniest of the night, but it did pack plenty of topical humor. And that’s kind of the point of the whole thing, right? Jason Sudeikis and Cecily Strong play two cruise directors aboard the stricken Carnival ship that left 4,000 people stranded in the Gulf of the Mexico last week. They’re tasked with keeping everybody in good spirits despite increasingly grim and disgusting conditions. They’ve acquired a newspaper, and decide that sharing some recent headlines might help pacify the restless passengers. Except, oh wait — the crew members soon realize it’s been a pretty unsettling week in news. The Pope resigned, North Korea successfully conducted a nuclear test, Olympian Oscar Pistorius was charged in the murder of his girlfriend… Not to mention the “nightmare cruise” they’re all currently braving. The sketch was a bit darker than the average cold open, but provided a clever way to address the more harrowing events of the past week.
I would request that all news and entertainment media that would like their material to be viewable worldwide to please abandon the circulation of Hulu videos... we cannot see them outside the U.S. That's a form of censorship, in a very warped way.
The Explainables starring DGod, DMuhammed, DJehova, DAllah, DJesus, DBhudda, DThor, DWotan and some Greeks and Romans - about a bunch of Liars making big money with telling fairytales to mankind.
This was definitely one of the best episodes of the season so far, and Waltz made a great host.I can’t remember another host that spoke English as a second language, so it was really cool to have him on.I was talking to a friend that I work with at DISH who said that his favorite bit was the cold opener on the cruise ship, but I am leaning towards the fake Retirement Ad.I missed the last part of the show because I fell asleep, but thankfully my DISH Hopper lets me pause SNL in the living room and resume watching it in my bedroom, so I didn’t end up sleeping on the couch.
In light of DJesus Uncrossed, I am going to lobby SNL to make a skit, entitled, "Muhammed Mows 'Em Down."
It will be all about the Christian "infidels" being killed by radical Islamists across the centuries. Much like DJesus, it will be hilarious!
Aside knowing Christoph Waltz being a great actor, everyone should know, that, for hard laughter, nobody goes straight to hell. So calm down, it's just Comedy.
The Tarnatino skit was blasphemous and an outrage in light of the Lenten season just beginning. SNL has hit its lowest point with this trash.
