Simpson Jury Field Trip: 1/2*
Tim plays OJ Simpson, showing all of the jury members around his the best parts of his house. There were subtle shades of humor, like Michael taking a knife away from the fish tank and the "NOT GUILTY!" line from the jury members while taking the picture with OJ. However, things got a bit wild when Farley, Spade and "the band" got involved. It was just unnecessary. This could have been a better sketch had they not done OJ sketches nearly every episode so far this season. SNL season twenty in a nutshell.

Monologue: DUD
Deion Sanders is a free agent and now, the host... and does this monologue by himself. He did not do a bad job and was given some nice sports material to work with, but he seemed to cool for himself here. "Rebuilding effort" is putting it nicely for this season.

Major League Players Association: DUD
At least they did the right thing by writing in Farley's John Kruk, but the writers made a mistake by not writing in more cast members and centering the sketch around Deion Sanders.

The 1995 ESPY Awards: DUD
A never-ending award show. Farley was better off playing himself than "John Goodman," doing many Mets jokes at their expense. They used stock footage of one guy over and over again laughing to the point it was not funny anymore. Deion Sanders makes an appearance as himself here, showing that SNL had the right idea in mind, but awful execution. "Friend of the show" Maunte Bol makes an appearance here as well. Jay Mohr brought back his Dick Vitale impression in a worthless appearance. Tim Meadows also made a pointless appearance as well just to eat up another minute. Who writes this garbage?

Weekend Update: ****1/2
FINALLY! Norm saved his best week all season for jokes for this episode: 49ers (great follow-up to last week!), OJ Simpson/calls, pot use in high schools, sex, Mickey Mouse, kidneys, Roseanne(!), Best Retard.

Adam Sandler makes his final appearance as Opera Man while in the cast and the only appearance of the season. Opera Man has been missed greatly this season and provided instant laughs in an episode in DIRE need for them.

Juggernaut Force: ** [i](for the Farley blooper)[/i]
We have now reached the infamous part of the episode. Most people, like myself going into the sketch, had only seen the part with Farley running up the stairs with his pants having difficulties remaining on. Not only was the premise to the sketch dumb and repetitive, but I could not care any less for the cast members taking off their clothes.

Peace, We Outta Here: DUD

Perspectives: DUD
The second Perspectives sketch, but even this one was overwhelmingly dull.

Hot Dog for Jason: 1/2*
Farley plays a kid in the hospital, asking Deion to do a specific showboating celebration.

Deion Sanders Performs "Must Be The Money", "It's On": DUD
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Episode MVP: Norm MacDonald.
Long. Live. Norm.

Final Thoughts:
It's best not to watch this one.

Episode Rating without Weekend Update: 0.33
Episode Rating without Weekend Update and Juggernaut Force: 0.11
