Agreed. I was horrified as I kept watching over the last few weeks and realized just how rehearsed this is (and *this* is what we get)? I get they need to have some control, but I actually think a little spontaneity could go a long way. I think the episode with Henry Winkler was one of the best* because he didn't stay within the confines they gave him.
*and by best I don't mean great, but I think there was a little more life in that episode than others.
Just glad to hear I wasn't the only one who had no idea who that was and why she was screeching the song of her dolphin people. UH UH! UH UH! UH UH! I'm all for people I've never heard of, but that was awful. She was...not good. But so many others are also not good. I don't know if they are stifled under the strict parameters of the show or just more uninteresting than I ever thought. And I actually at first liked the final 2 minutes where David just spoke about some story in his life (that I assume? was true, but at the very least it was generally amusing), but he's already given that up it seems.
As I wrote a few weeks ago, I do want to like this but they are making it so hard. Maybe have only 2 guests and maybe they don't have to always talk about whatever weird celebrity thing is happening. I couldn't care less about Lebron and Taco Tuesdays. And when you do discuss whatever weird celebrity thing is happening or photo you post, let it be a surprise to the guests or something. I get that it's not a talk show, but, damn, let your guests talk for a second before you move on to the next (dumb) topic!
(and seriously, enough about pussies, camel toe, titties, jizz, etc. It's just...tired. If that makes me a prude, fine. But is there anyone who is of an age to have watched David Spade when he was originally on SNL that finds that hilarious? If so, I'm sorry.)
