Gal Godot brings Wonder Woman to studio 8H as she hosts SNL with musical guest Sam Smith.
SNL is back! Okay, SNL was back last week, but I was out of the country and still haven’t watched the copy of the Ryan Gosling episode I have saved on my DVR, so COOL IT. I can’t tell any of the newbies apart, but Gal Godot was host and I thought she did pretty good.
What You Missed:
Cold Open: Jason Aldean
This was a nice way to pay tribute to both the massacre in Las Vegas and Tom Petty’s passing.
As it turns out, I have needed Leslie Jones in full Wonder Woman regalia for a long time.
E! Fall Lineup
“You’d watch that for 20 minutes! And that’s okay!”
The slow reveal that this is OJ Simpson on a date is well executed
The Chosen One
Chad is the worst, y’all.
Safelite Auto Glass
I saw where this was going, but it did it so well, I didn’t even mind.
- “Learn karate, or use your words!”
- I have missed Kate’s Ginsburns.
- “She was best know for her catch phrase, ‘Stop calling me that.'”
- Pete Davison on his depression and airtime is great.
The Maiden and the Mice
This is a great twist on Cinderella. “It’s just…a lot” “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?”
Espionage Signal Interference
Miss Vixen and Kate are wonderful.
A Wonder Woman sketch near the end of the show was going to get weird, and this is great.
The Naomi Show
Terrible teens! Aidy plays a great midwest mom, and this did not go where I expected it to.
What You Didn’t Miss:
- The Mirage sketch was a little too by-the-numbers for me
