    S44.E13: Don Cheadle / Gary Clark Jr.

    Yeah, they played a little fast and loose there, because for that matter, Lady Gaga also has been nominated for an Oscar before, whereas this is Sam Elliot (Who was over on the ‘Vets’ side) first nomination. They should’ve just come up with some other kind of designation, because I spent more time focusing on that than I spent paying attention to the sketch. However, Don Cheadle himself was amazing. The monologue may have been one of the best “standup” type monologues I’ve seen from someone who isn’t a standup. He slayed everything he was given. He is just so insanely talented. If anyone hasn’t checked out his new show Black Monday, you should, because he is excellent in it. And Mulaney in March? Yes please, because with him writing his own sketches, I know the writing won’t be able to let him down.

    Seeing John and Pete together makes me really hope they bring their mini-tour somewhere close to me. John has been taking Pete around doing shows (They’re friends, and I think it’s to help keep Pete busy, because the prices are much lower than John pulls). If the WU bit is any indication of the two of them together; I’m in. I’m guessing Colin was also breaking at the end there, because when Pete fell into him laughing, it looked like Colin was already there I would also be first in line to start a kickstarter to fund both The Mule-any and Alurn.

    S44.E08: Jason Momoa / Mumford & Sons

    I realize Kenan’s had damn near 15 seasons to perfect his timing so he should be good at this, but I could not stop laughing when Beef said he couldn’t read because of dorks, and Kenan said “Really? You’ve been in college for 8 years! I think that’s on you.” Mikey Day is the proof that being a strong writer is an asset when you’re first starting out on the show, and can make the difference in your first couple seasons. I think the reason he is such a strong anchor for a lot of the sketches is because he was a writer previously, and because he’s writing a lot of the sketches to begin with. It’s also why Chris Redd is in a lot of sketches and shorts, even though he’s new.

    S44.E07: Claire Foy / Anderson.Paak

    Mikey Day must’ve written both sketches, since he was a writer on both. At least that’s my assumption. Claire Foy looked so much like a brunette Dina Manzo in the Good Morning Goomah sketch, it was uncanny. And the Goodfellas tribute? Perfection.

    Milo got screwed. He was one of my favorite contestants in YEARS — that kid has charisma and talent and deserved this win. Whitney did too; they had an outstanding partnership over the whole season. The one plus is that Milo’s young, he’s got a bright future, and I bet he’s going places. Can’t say the same for Bobby.

    I actually really enjoyed the episode. These may not be sketches that I remember at the end of the season, but I laughed when I was watching them, which is more than I can say for a lot of the episodes so far this season. I must admit, I actually had an audible loud laugh at “This is truly a loser’s fantasy” in the high school sketch. And as a Drag Race fan, I loved GPYASSS and seeing Miss Peppermint and Jiggly Caliente.

    I have to admit, the House Hunter sketch reminded me of John Mulaney's (better) standup bit about HGTV and realtors. To the point where it made me wonder if he pitched a bit when he hosted last season, and it was a leftover sketch idea that didn't get used.

    I could go on a diatribe on how much I love this show and how feminist I think it is (that I will spare you all from), but I think the episode that's most representative of that is episode 2 of season 2, when Jessie and Missy go to the Korean Spa. I was the girl that developed early (so, more of a Gina in that regard), but if I had been able to see all sorts of different womens bodies when I was 13 and know that all of them were normal, that would've been life changing for me. I saw an interview with the cast and how hard they had to push Netflix to keep that episode, and the song that Maya Rudolph sings in - Netflix had a problem with showing Jessie and Missy's chests. And the female writers of the episode pushed back, because their point was that not only had the show already shown naked boys for laughs (and were going to do it again in a few episodes), but wanted to prove that showing a womans body isn't inherently sexual. It sounded like it was a real uphill battle, but I'm glad they fought it. So, no, I don't think you're stupid for thinking it's progressive. I actually think it's very progressive, and I think it's meant to be that way. I think the creators are hoping that it opens the doors for conversations so that kids don't feel so alone like some of us (or at least, I know I certainly did going through puberty) felt when we were younger. And is it filthy? Yeah, but sometimes I think adults tend to forget that kids ARE kinda filthy at that age.

    Well, I gotta say, I wasn’t expecting Liev Schrieber to pull out a spot on Michael Barbaro impression.
