A busy fall did not keep me from watching SNL. However, it has kept me from writing my reviews. Here is my effort at catching up with some quick snippets from the first few months of Season 42, which has definitely been memorable.
Margot Robbie has quickly become the "it" girl in Hollywood. The Aussie bombshell seems to be everywhere, including the SNL stage. Here is how her first turn as host went.
Cold OpeningEveryone knew this season of SNL had a potential of being legendary with a presidential election dominating every news outlet, especially such an unconventional and divisive election. Once it was announced that Alec Baldwin would be portraying Donald Trump, the excitement grew even more. This Cold Open was our first look into SNL's take of the election cycle. After seeing the first one, you couldn't wait till the next week for the next one. It became one of the best things to come out of this crazy election.
Weekend Update has become my favorite part of every show. Jost and Che have the best chemistry at that desk since Fey and Fallon. There were two guests to the Update desk this week. First was Cecily Strong's undecided voter. Cecily is great on SNL, however these characters she does are just not funny. The other guest was Kenan's David Ortiz. This impression sounds nothing like Big Papi, but I can't stop laughing every time I see it.
