Author: Incredible Hulk sketch was especially a kick in the balls
Subject: Yeah, a lot of stuff in this episode was almost like a "screw you" to fans of the show

>Leading Off:
>• To start off, why not switch Foreman and Baldwin's
>episodes? Baldwin should've been the Christmas show
>host. Foreman doesn't sound like a cheery, happy
>Christmas show.
>Gifts for the Middle Class: 1/2*
>First off, Michael and Janeane are no Phil and Jan.
>Middle class this, middle class that. At least the
>Angela part was funny. The audience was dead from the
>start in this one.
>Monologue: DUD
>At least Foreman was funny when he said "thank you, I
>didn't say stop" to start his monologue. The Spade
>comment was alright too, but it was painful to see
>Foreman navigate through his monologue.
>Time Boxer: DUD
>Lots of yelling by Foreman here. Not sure if it was
>excitement or just him trying to be scared. The
>punches by Foreman were nothing. Overall, we are off
>to a disastrous start.
>Looking Good: DUD
>I did not need to see "makeovers" from Foreman.
>Weekend Update: *
>Norm couldn't save this mess. He only had two good
>jokes on Update this week, a step down from the
>previous few weeks: Charles Perez Show, penis height.
>The religious cult was basically the same thing from
>Travolta's episode. I swear, I've seen that "BURN IN
>HELL" joke during Nealon's Update tenure before.
>Janeane's attempt at a Martha Stewart impression was
>sad. She was the first to impersonate the late 90s
>icon, but nobody was able to pull it off until Ana
>Gasteyer was added into the cast.
>Matt Foley: 1/2*
>I couldn't understand what the hell Farley was saying
>for the first minute or two during Matt Foley. He
>sounded really bad in this. Farley was playing
>himself, not Matt Foley, especially during the puppet
>portion. Wow, I don't want to give that a DUD. I just
>don't. Foreman really butchered his last few lines
>with Meadows, also. This has been a giant joke so far
>and a mockery of pretty much everything SNL had stood
>for during the Hartman years. Not the same show.
>Uncle Joe: *
>I wonder how embarrassed Nealon was after this Uncle
>Joe sketch. Cleghorne's moaning and crying toward the
>end of the Uncle Joe sketch hurt my ears so much.
>Foreman singing was just so bad it was funny. That was
>the funniest part of the whole damn show. I'll give it
>half a star just because it was so bad. Personally,
>the sketch kinda flew by. It was still bad, though. No
>doubt about that.
>The Incredible Hulk: **
>Meadows becoming Foreman over and over again was just
>horrible. "Maybe Hulk want to clean up" was good and
>Hulk tired of the sketch was funny as well. Hulk is
>smart about SNL this season. One joke over and over
>again. The audience stops laughing at page four of
>I know this episode was bad, but I wasn't expecting it
>to be this bad. Where's the Christmas stuff?
>I guess Hulk smashing GE's guitar was funny. Better
>than the crap we got so far.
>Chris Elliott's Bedtime Story: **1/2
>Elliott's random thoughts during the story was funny,
>like cows can't fly and cars. Plus, the fact he wanted
>to see the pictures and know who it was by.
>Stalking: ***
>A Kids in the Hall film, with Bruce McCulloch. It
>would not have been such an awful idea to have Bruce
>in the cast or air more of his films throughout this
>season (they only showed one other film).
>Jackie Stallone's Psychic Circle: **
>I liked how Jackie said Sylvester was an international
>star and Frank was a struggling musician. It would
>have been cool to see Frank Stallone on Update when
>his brother Sylvester hosted a few seasons later
>Episode MVP [by default]: Chris Elliott.
>This was Janeane's best episode in the cast as well,
>but Chris had the overall live highlight to recover
>from his disaster in the last episode.
>Final Thoughts:
>I'm surprised there were only three DUDs in this one.
>Technically, there were supposed to be four (Matt
>Foley), but I couldn't give Foley a DUD. At least the
>character is amusing. Uncle Joe, as I explained
>earlier, had Foreman's horrible singing that was so
>bad it was funny.
>This was the Christmas show. This was the Christmas
>show? What?! I could only tell by the cold open,
>Norm's quick comment at the end of Update and some
>snow during the goodnights.
