Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 42x07: Kristen Wiig & The XX

November 25, 2016

Minding the P's & Q's of SNL
PROBLEMATIC: Just when Saturday Night Live was giving you hope alongside Dave Chappelle, well isn’t your ol’ fence-sitting friend Saturday Night Live. From even the vague humanizing of Trump in the cold open (no, you can’t win with that guy), to shots taken at liberal Brooklynites with The Bubble (still, a wonderfully designed sketch)… this is the sheen of having your cake and eating it too that has always looked most disappointing on SNL.
PROBLEMATIC: Kristen Wiig was no funnier then we she was doing a Kate McKinnon impersonation in Whiskers R We sketch (and let it be known that Charlize Theron is still a high-water mark partner for Barb, even if Amy Adams brought an unmatched chemistry with Kate). Other then that she brought back some of her mid-level characters, which helped show both that the show hasn’t quite changed as much as it should have in the last four seasons, and that its too reliable on the last generation of cast members (and generations before it) at the expense of the post-40th crew. It made me a little bummed, that aside from probably Cecily Strong… Kate McKinnon is at least for the moment peerless on this cast. She hasn’t quite found or been given the Forte, Hader, Suedeikis, Armesin, that McKinnon had.
QUALITY: … which isn’t to take away from Kate McKinnon as a great cast member, I’m just not convinced that she’s a great host. Great musical guests? The XX! Honestly, I hope that the League members unfamiliar with this trio who are CBC music favorites (and otherwise quietly excellent) have been turned onto some quality music before this band breaks big.

With a guest happy episode of Saturday Night Live, it was a point heavy episode for teams with a wide-range of high-watermarks set for teams. In fact, aside from episode three's massive point totals for a couple of cast members, this episode's big points for most all involved meant that on average the episode more then double the season's episode average for cast points!

This sets up the show for the holiday season to come, with the announced host for December 3rd being... EMMA STONE! With La La Land coming out, right around the corner, it should be a big next couple of months for Stone.

LAST EPISODE: DAVE CHAPPELLE

NEXT EPISODE: EMMA STONE
