In an almost perfectly spot-on parody of HBO’s buzziest show, Tina Fey played a grizzled Albanian refugee who has joined the Girls girls in Brooklyn. New cast member Noel Wells nailed it with her pouty impersonation of Lena Dunham’s Hannah Horvath, and Vanessa Bayer also dazzled as Zosia Mamet’s fast-talking Shoshanna. But, of course, the real star here was Fey, who brought some much-needed Eastern European intensity. Upon learning about Hannah’s OCD, Fey’s character, Blerta, reveals that she has OCD too — “old cow disease. It’s when old cow bites you and disease infects the skin. It’s why I have rubber hand.” Bonus: She later uses that rubber hand to slap some sense into Shoshanna.
5 funny skits? That hasn't happened on that show in many, many years. Tina Fey is not funny enough to save this show. They should have ended it years ago. Arcade Fire were pretty good though. Music is the only reason to DVR this show.
for the new cast members we go 5 white guys and 1 white female..... who cares about diversity and having enough people to play different parts that aren't white males or even just some non white characters.
I love Saturday Night Live. I have watched it since the original cast. I felt that last night's premier was one of the most awful shows I have seen. The skits were not thought out well, amateurish, and not very funny. Just plain dumb. To me the show bombed, which was especially bad because Tina Fey is so talented. I cannot believe she thought this was well though out and good planning. Very disappointing.
