No. Stop that. It wasn't funny the first time. Stop bring him back on WU.

Yeah, that was really bad.
It shut down weekend update's momentum too.

At least the first appearance had the novelty of the costume going for it.

I really hope that was Kyle's send-off. He's been insufferable since I first saw him on Sports Show with Norm Macdonald.

Yeah, baby Yoda is played out. I get letting Mooney do it if it's his last year, but "Kyle Mooney stole the "Weekend Update" show when he made another appearance as Grogu" ?!!!

No.

rumor has it Kyle Mooney is a great comedy writer...I've yet to see any proof of that...but I know for a fact as a comedian he is one note and that note sucks.

"Hey, I'm Kyle Mooney! I'm going to do every character using the same stupid voice and wave my hands around the same way every farking time!"

I don't watch SNL live... I wait for Hulu and FFWD through most if it, as 45+ years have trained me to recognize a shiat sketch quickly... if I see its Kyle Mooney...that becomes an instant pass.

People got paid for that. Multiple people. To write that. To approve that. To direct that. And to produce that. And to film that.

I weep for this sad, sad, sad nation.

Depp is in court right now arguing that her op-ed ruined his career. This article also blames her op-ed for ruining his career. 

Weird.

i'm confused. was there another segment that was funny?

The article is from an alternate universe where Kyle Mooney is actually funny.

/Okay, I kid.  Kyle Mooney is not funny in any universe.

So awkward.

I thought maybe the article was just terribly written and failed to get across the humor of the bit, so I watched the video, and nope, it was even worse than the writer's description. That was just sad, like Farva calling people chickerfarkers.

This is the worst cast this show has ever seen.

I mean . . . "Played out"?  That suggests it was ever worth playing in the first place.  It was horrible and cringe-worthy the first time I saw it, and the subsequent times have just been worse.  Who is charge of quality control there?  Do they have that many terrible ideas that they need to greenlight this crap?

I suppose I meant in general. Baby Yoda was cute when he first came out. References to baby Yoda were marginally amusing, but Mooney's was the worst.

But NOW? It's been two and a half farking years! Let it go.

Plaster Lion: This is the worst cast this show has ever seen.


Anyone who says this never saw the Ebersol years. Eddie Murphy was the only thing that saved that stark pile of crap.

Weekend Update and the filmed pieces are consistently the best the show has ever done right now. The sketches... are not because you have 50-60 people fighting for 40 minutes of airtime every week.

It's almost like this garbage is created just for the outrage it generates.

Okay, whew. Thought I might have been the only one that it didn't do anything for.

Baby Yoda is a very special level of awesome, boys and girls. We must not hasten people getting sick of him with shiat like this. He should be used sparingly.

Baby Yoda becoming a regular SNL character is like your grandma discovering an Internet meme and slapping it all over her crochet club's Facebook page. It's the official signal that that previously cool thing isn't cool anymore.

If you are going to bail on SNL, at least make your swan song character memorable...

Well, they probably spent more on that costume than all the other props for the season combined so dammit, they're going to use it.

Kyle Mooney slayed

Wow, no, he really did not. At all.
 
2022-05-16 6:17:16 PM  
Unless by 'slayed' you mean 'singlehandedly killed the momentum of the show, bringing the comedy to a complete dead stop,' in which case Kyle Mooney completely slayed.
 
2022-05-16 6:20:36 PM  
I still like that one article, that claimed Tim Kasurinsky was under-rated

No no no, you guys don't get it.

Having baby Yoda acting as a part of the vapid, substance-less forward facing part of meme culture represents how true cultural creativity is coopted, marketed, and resold to an audience of ...

... Ah, fark it - I have no idea what they're trying to do. WU is consistently good, right up until they try to shoehorn "characters that don't have skit potential" in as filler.  We get it, boat-guy - you're good at being smarmy. We get it Bowen - you're gay.

With Che leaving, I fear for WU. I'd say the same if Jost left. They're a great team.
