>Motivational Speaker: ***
>The last Matt Foley sketch while Chris was still in
>the cast and a big rebound from the one everyone wants
>to forget when George Foreman hosted. It was safe,
>because it had all the original elements in a Mexican
>format, down to Farley saying: "Viva de Nueva York, es
>Sabado noche!"
>Monologue: *1/2
>Can you say overrated? Not Springsteen, but this
>monologue. Courteney's boyfriend at the time was Bruce
>Springsteen. Sandler comes out as Bruce Springsteen
>and sings for a few minutes.
>Good Morning Brooklyn: **1/2
>Friends star Courteney Cox is the host of the episode.
>She plays the new co-host in Good Morning Brooklyn,
>back for its second installment very late into the
>season. Chris Farley plays a hot dog vendor that gets
>beaten up by Molly Shannon. At least the audience was
>loud and on top of the material this time around, as
>it meant for a more pleasant watching than before.
>Gapardy: ***1/2
>While the 100 doll hairs might be one of the worst
>lines in SNL history, it has been far too long since
>SNL had done a game show. It was also far too long
>since the Gap Girls had made an appearance. No Gap
>Girls sketches in the Gap all year long and it seemed
>like a total waste with Farley, Sandler and Spade as
>the cast anchors. Cox did a strong job as the host.
>Weekend Update: ****
>Quite the variety of jokes in this Update. Norm's best
>jokes were: OJ's DNA, OJ jurors(!), suicide bombers,
>free dildos, special underwear, Demi Moore(!), Marion
>Barry, marks(!!!).
>This is what I mean by it being so strange to see
>Molly Shannon this season. Before she had Mary
>Katherine Gallagher, she tried out a grammar school
>teacher, Louise Ingstrom, who critiqued grammar. I am
>surprised this character was not made recurring before
>her SNL career ended, even if this was a total whiff
>for her Update debut, because she made nearly every
>character recurring. She would speak using "PERIODS,"
>"commas" and "end quotes." More importantly to her,
>this had to be a confidence booster. She was loud and
>got the audience loud in return, responding to her
>very nicely.
>Melanie: DUD
>The Melanie sketch. This infamous sketch. Right when
>you think you are watching a solid episode, THIS
>Hiring Manson: *
>Michael McKean says that Courteney and David can even
>hire Charles Manson, as an exaggeration. Courteney and
>David hire Charles Manson.
>Company Mixer: DUD
>Kevin's wig... anyways, Tim lies his way through the
>conversation with Kevin Nealon, messing with Nealon's
>mind. He meant well with his performance, but this was
>horrid. Ellen wore those glasses virtually every
>sketch this season and it is driving me mad.
>Replacement Baseball: DUD
>Internal screaming.
>His Muse Friday: DUD
>External screaming.
>Mr. Cool: *1/2
>Clearly, David Spade had a crush on Cox, since it felt
>like he was in virtually every sketch Courteney was
>in. He did not give this much effort in his
>performances and to even appear in sketches in the
>first place all season long. This one was different,
>as he showed some range, which was refreshing.
>However, that does not change my mind about his
>Episode MVP: Courteney Cox.
>Despite skipping half of the sketches in the second
>half (three of six), she did enough in the first half
>to win MVP honors. Farley had a light night after
>Update and took backseat to Spade, but Spade did
>nothing with his extra airtime. Meanwhile, Norm wins
>an honorable mention.
>Final Thoughts:
>How did this show avoid cancellation again?
>Episode Rating with Melanie as a DOUBLE DUD: 1.42
