Last year, it was stated by Kristen Wiig that she plans to retire from playing two of her most known characters. Bubble haired Gilly and the rapid talking Penelope were these two characters, but obviously, a year after this statement, it turned out to be a fake statement. It was nothing more than a prank by Kristen Wiig, as she returned to 8H again and played her role as these two characters. All in all, the first hosting experience for Sofia Vergara as a host of Saturday Night Live was very funny and rigid. It was actually quite a nice surprise for the viewers; at least it was way better than the very unimpressive promos and ads that announced her return.
This episode of “Saturday Night Live” started with a very great opening, way better and more interesting that Mitt Romney usual lifeless opening. It was very great seeing Romney talking about the benefits and virtues of having diabetesas an adult. And the second sketch, the “Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel” hilarious. Wiig’s Drew Barrymore is absolutely perfect.
Although the first time this sketch aired, it didn’t quite grab viewers’ attention and viewers didn’t like it. When it aired for a second time, the timing was much better and it really grabbed everyone’s attention. It actually served quite a few laughs and was interesting throughout the whole segment.
On this week, the SNL totally gave a blind eye to all of the independent artists and stars from YouTube.com in order to put One Direction in the spot light. The very famous “The X Factor” band that has been gaining a lot of attention and fame worldwide. On this episode they really showed the world why do people around the world care about the band, and why most teen agers have become diehard fans and followers. As for the Weekend Update on last night episode was simply Bobby Moynihan showcasing his good old character of the always drunk uncle. Whether it’s him mourning over the old times, or his rants about how much he hates technology.
Then it was time for “The Manuel Ortiz” segment of the show. This week’s Manuel Ortiz sketch was way better that what we usually get from it. This was probably due to the amazing outfit that Kristen Wigg was wearing, the hot prisoner costume. Not only that, but other things contributed in making this segment better than usual. For example, Bill Hader’s elastic face accompanied by the explanation given by Sofia Vergara’s on why she got abandoned when she was just a child.
To sum things up, it was a great episode, filed with new segments. As for the usual segments, thanks to some elements, they were way better than the usual.
