R.I.P. Kristen Wiig.
 
2012-05-20 08:14:06 AM
the woman was just barely funny. what's wrong with you people?
 
2012-05-20 08:26:23 AM
Barely funny + somewhat hot = irresistibly desirable
 
2012-05-20 08:28:50 AM
So the show will be slightly better in the fall?
 
2012-05-20 08:33:22 AM

Kristen Wiig was never funny.

I think you mean "Whho"?
 
2012-05-20 08:49:59 AM
I think she is funny, but I'll be happy not to see the Target lady anytime soon.

This. She comes off like a sad clown sometimes, which makes me want her.

i thought about watching last night but i always get drunk and then it's suddenly 2am. i didn't know it was her last night, i probably would have watched.
 
2012-05-20 09:22:26 AM
She was pretty funny, but I like her better as an actress.
 
2012-05-20 09:26:32 AM
It's funny, for the last couple of years, I couldn't stand her. But in the last half season, I finally started to like her work. And she could look good when the show would let her. She looked pretty hot in that Will Farrell flu medicine skit.
 
2012-05-20 09:29:01 AM
Comedy through being intentionally annoying never was my type of thing. Will be nice to see them go a different direction.
 
2012-05-20 09:31:08 AM
I watched SNL for the first time in many years last night, so I had no idea who she was. But it still seemed like a pretty sweet sendoff. And Mick Jagger plays a great Steven Tyler.
 
2012-05-20 09:35:12 AM
I rate her characters anywhere from marginally humorous to downright irritating.
 
2012-05-20 09:38:50 AM
She looks like what a MILF should look like.
 
2012-05-20 09:39:17 AM
After the show, Lorne Michaels was heard quoting a Rob Schneider movie line when he exclaimed, "Oh no! We suck again!"
 
2012-05-20 09:42:08 AM
What sucks is she's not the only castmate leaving, but they all acted like she was God's Gift and screw the other people leaving.

Time flies...didn't realize it's been over 7 years now since I watched SNL.
 
2012-05-20 10:01:36 AM
It was a great show. The nerd in the karaoke bar sketch was classic, and Mick killed the Secret Word sketch. Only the Al Sharpton bit was bad, otherwise the whole episode was a lot of fun, and Wiig's sendoff was classy. As for those complaining that others are leaving too and they got ignored; she's a lady, and arguably SNL's biggest star in a while.
 
2012-05-20 10:06:00 AM
The problem was, she was the only female cast member for a LONG stretch with any versatility, and who had any remotely memorable characters, so she tended to get overused.

And now, I think we're headed into another unfunny season, unless they can find another workhorse, or scrap the harem they've got for some real comedic talent.
 
2012-05-20 10:06:11 AM
I'm encountering a slight sense of pride that I no longer get so wasted on weekends that I think watching SNL is a great idea and no matter how unfunny it is will give me some cultural touchstone so I can have something to talk about with others.

Yet you're talking about it anyway? I would have stayed with the liquor.

That show is still on?
 
2012-05-20 10:32:03 AM
I liked her in that skit she did with january jones.

thats all I remember.
 
2012-05-20 10:33:00 AM
She was as bad as Melanie Hutsell. They both only had one damn facial expression. It was not funny.

On the other hand, now I might watch an episode or two. I could not stand her.
 
2012-05-20 10:41:12 AM
Does that mean she'll be making more movies?

I'm ok with this.

You're over-selling her.
 
2012-05-20 10:46:02 AM
I want to f*ck Kristen Wiig.
 
2012-05-20 10:55:49 AM
Good riddance, unfunny lady.
 
2012-05-20 10:57:21 AM
She was the short chubby one?

I thinks he's funny; I enjoy all the nobodies on here with next to no comedy credentials critiquing somebody who has been recognized by other comedians to be pretty funny (The Comedy Awards). If 1,500 or-so people in the industry come together and recognize somebody as funny, I'd take their word over random twat on Fark.

Haters gonna hate indeed.

/That new girl McKinnon scares the shiat out of me...crazy eyes.

My coworker got me baby doll hands (I don't want to know how) and myself, her, and another coworker would chase after bubbles when we were having a crappy day at work. It's silly but damn was it fun. I really liked the 2 A-Holes sketch. I wish they would have brought that back last night. I was surprised at how great Mick was - I thought it was a great show.

What you did there, I see.

Just cut to "irresistibly desirable."

it was a typo; I thought i put a thing about people about to flame me...but in all sincerity I meant all of that. Although the absence of one letter may appear to nullify it.

Mick was incredible. He was in 90% of the sketches and the musical act. I didn't have that kind of stamina 10 years ago. Kristen is great. I wish her all the luck. She's a good writer too.
 
2012-05-20 11:40:56 AM
I thought last night's episode was a really strong one with which to end the season.

I think I enjoyed Lazy Sunday 2 the most,.

As for Kristin, I found some of her characters really unfunny, but sometimes she hit it out the park. She really was their female workhorse, and I'm not sure who's going to step up and take her place.I like her, and I wish her all the best.
 
2012-05-20 11:41:39 AM
I found some of her characters irritating, but then there were a few that just floored me, they were so original and funny. Every time I saw the Two A-holes with Sudeikis I'd laugh uncontrollably, and I thought that the sexual-harassing lesbian reporter was brilliant.

I've been watching old SNL segments from the 1990s on Netflix streaming, and it's great to see how many talented people they've had over the years. The one thing I absolutely abhor about those shows, though, is the insistence of including the Weekend Update segments in every single episode - they waste valuable time (the episodes only include selected scenes), and there's not much entertainment value in watching old news being reported. Also, Dennis Miller always was an unfunny arrogant tool, and Victoria Jackson should have been sent in a spaceship to live on Io.

/and I wish Jan Hooks had been as fortunate in her career as Wiig is being
//still love seeing her on 30 Rock

and I wish Jan Hooks had been as fortunate in her career as Wiig is being

Hooks took herself WAY too seriously. That's what made Wiig, to me anyway, likeable. She NEVER took herself seriously. The fact that she's fairly easy on the eyes doesn't hurt.
