SNL -- DEC 14, 2013 -- HOST: JOHN GOODMAN with musical guest KINGS OF LEON

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

 
SNL -- DEC 14, 2013


HOST

JOHN GOODMAN

  with Musical Guest 

KINGS OF LEON

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/


This was kind of an iffy show.  Too much seemed under-written, under-rehearsed or mis-directed.  This was kind of disappointing since Goodman is such a versatile, energetic, big resource, and because several shows recently have been refreshingly almost dud-less.

But there were some funny sketches, and some very funny moments.
 
SEE THE RECAP BELOW...


JOHN GOODMAN
It feels like John Goodman has been in almost everything lately.  He is great in the hilarious AMAZON show ALPHA HOUSE. He's in the (currently running) INSIDE LLEWIN DAVIS (for which there were lots of ads on the show tonight). He was in THE ARTIST and in ARGO.

RECAP

COLD OPEN -- Obamasigns.  Obama talking about recent troubles on his recent trip.  Then a SIGNER came to hilariously interpret Obama's speech.

MONOLOG -- Goodman's standup was just OK, but then the song was great Goodman.

GUY FIERI / FOOD NETWORK -- This "promo" was a mess.

JOHN PAUL GAUTIER -- This real ad was so over the top it was a winner.

DEARBORN COMMUNITY PLAYHOUSE / DANCE OF THE SNOWFLAKES -- A good concept: the private thoughts of players doing a stupid snowflake dance.  The start of this routine brought to mind some classic Sid Caesar sketches, like the automated clock.  But Alas!, this was under-developed, under-written, not funny or interesting, and it finished by being too "sentimentally soft."  

THREE WISE GUYS -- Stallone, Goodman, and DeNiro as US wiseguys on camels, coming to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  A few good (if not original) jokes, but delivered at such a slow pace, it was mostly excruciating to watch and listen to.

KINGS OF LEON -- Straightforward renditions of their songs.

WEEKEND UPDATE -- Some good jokes, some lame.  But BLACK SANTA was very funny and sharp.  DRUNK UNCLE was neither.

SEXISM -- John Goodman as a sexy woman suing because she was fired for being too hot. When (finally, at the end) s/he started to dance, the scene picked up nicely.

HOLIDAY FIRE SAFETY -- This sketch attacks the age-old question of the dangers of Santa landing on the roof and coming down the fireplace.  

HALLMARK CHRISTMAS MOVIES -- Lame ideas for Christmas movies.

TCM / THE CHRISTMAS WHISTLE -- Again, channeling the old Sid Caesar parody movies; again falling short; this tells the "inspiring" story of the man followed by the whistle of an "angel".

H&M  -- I'm actually not sure if this was a bad parody ad, or a real ad in the form of a bad parody ad.

LAST CALL -- The last two patrons of the bar at night looking for a way to hook up.  They found an energetic way to connect!

The best sketches were the SIGNER on the Cold Open, BLACK SANTA on Weekend Update, the HOLIDAY FIRE SAFETY presentation and LAST CALL.
