Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 42x04: Tom Hanks & Lady Gaga

October 25, 2016

Minding the P's & Q's of SNL
QUALITY: America has been getting touchy about being consoled, so I was nervous about America’s Dad giving the ol’ U.S. of A. a little bit of advice and a pick me up in the cold open… and you’d think that America would never get into this mess with Tom Hanks as their dad,  but then again
QUALITY: Tom Hanks was a fantastic host. I don’t need to tell you this. The fact that he’s had a quiet last decade on the show is more to the point where he was at a different point in his career, and had to step away from doing a Saturday Night Live once or twice a year, for a while. It’s great to see him on the show though, interacting with a fresh cast and throwing to the Musical Guest, in what can only be called her “mechanical bull” phase. Sponsored by Bud Light. Back to Hanks though, and enough catty musical commentary… from David S. Pumpkins to Doug on Black Jeopardy, the writing was weird and wonderful and proved that as well as getting back into that politically commentary niche that they lost last year when Trump hosted, this generation of the cast is following Kate McKinnon’s lead and getting sooo weird,  in the best possible way.
QUALITY: With Larry David on retainer, it’s only a matter of time before David S. Pumpkins and Kevin Roberts team-up… right? Please?
PROBLEMATIC: If I’m going to be disappointed with anything, it will be the flat Sully sketch, but hey I understand where it’s coming from. Hanks is always going to be game, and it’s a fun riff on the idea of a heroic pilot thinking maybe a little too much of himself.
PROBLEMATIC: I’m not asking a lot when it comes to sketch continuity, and it certainly isn’t as bad as the reoccurring grossness of the “Hot For Teacher” sketch last year, but if we’re going to bring back America’s Funniest Pets, at least give me a callback to Ron Howard taking over for Adam Driver’s Finn Raynal-Beads! Or at the very least, don’t act like Joelle LaRue and Noelle LeSoup are here for the first time. I know my America’s Funniest animal shows! Also, Stefon married Seth Myers, so don’t tell me continuity isn’t important in sketch comedy.

With Tom Hanks putting together an excellent episode, teams also continued to find out who their aces might be. Cecily Strong has proven to be the new Taran Killam, points-wise at least, becoming something of the 1B ace of the cast alongside Kate McKinnon. The Hartman Group also took part in a Featured Redraft, between the third and fourth episodes, the first of its kind in our four years of Saturday Night Live Fantasy League! What will this do to their chances as the season continues? We’ll certainly have to wait and see!

Benedict Cumberbatch was announced as the Host for the fifth episode of the season, on November 5th! The musical guest on the night will be Solange, no doubt making it a hotly anticipate episode! Yes, after four years of being selected in more or less every host draft available, the Cumberbet has paid off with Dr. Strange rolling into theatre’s in less then a month! For ample Dr. Strange chat, check out our comic book podcast on the Trivia Club Network, The Panel (hurray for cross-promotion!) a Podcast To Astooooonish!

Alec Baldwin continued to be the best possible additional cast member, for the teams that have drafted him. Even if it doesn’t continue with such fervor after the election, Baldwin has still been able to say “LIVE FROM NEW YORK…!” at the start of each of the first four episodes, gaining 60 points from just that line of dialogue alone. When these points were first instituted four seasons ago, I never expected that Alec would do his best to break the game. A few fun firsts for the season in this past episode, include Aidy Bryant running through a large glass window for points and for the very first time we have puke points, the infamous fluids ruling of 2016, getting points for Cecily Strong!

See you all in TWO WEEKS for another Saturday Night Live Fantasy League points breakdown, and also… CUMBERBATCH!
