Guy Fieri On NYT Review

I didn’t see the show this week… but I did pass Guy Fieri’s new restaurant multiple times this week… and it was a weird feeling… though there were still people eating there. But if this got cut in dress, SNL must have had a really good week, because this is both very funny, simple to digest even outside of Manhattan, and brief… 3 great things that go great together on SNL.

It’s also a great piece about much of criticism in many quarters.

    SNL was pretty good this week, not as good as last week, but still, after these most recent two weeks we put it on series record for the first time ever.

    Dude, SNL was atrocious this week and they didn’t even have Hurricane Sandy to blame it on.

  3. J says:

    Yeah, this week was dreadful. If anything good got cut, it could have been for time, as Renner sure took his sleepwalking and giggling at himself through the monologue. And it was pretty much downhill from there.

    The previous two weeks were good, though.

    You know what I’m always curious about with SNL is why Deadline and THR and other sites have to do those “SNL RECAP!” posts. I mean, if you don’t watch it, is a text recap really going to do much for you? Explaining sketch comedy seems like a pretty pointless endeavor.

    I can get behind posting clips, but I’ll never understand the text posts unless it’s just an excuse to have a story for people to comment on.

    The guy didn’t put much effort into his impression or wardrobe. No obnoxious rings on his fat fingers? His restaurant was destined to be shit but I have to say why review the place so soon after opening? Don’t most critics wait a bit to review a place?

    you do realize that THE DARK knight rises is only 6-minutes shorter than CLoud ATlas

    SNL was weak this week. My favorite sketch was the last one, where Jeremy Renner’s supposed to identity the dead body as his dead brother and he keeps getting it wrong. “That’s Steven Tyler.”
    “No, no, it’s not.”
    “This is hard.”
    “It’s not THAT hard.”

    I’m not an avid watcher anymore and will sometimes catch up on Hulu when I have the time, but it seems to me that they are having an exceptionally good season. Perhaps its because it is an election year, or that with Wiig having moved on they aren’t focusing on all of her recurring parts but what I have seen seems stronger than it has in a long time.

    My personal favorites so far this year were the undecided voters, the apple review, and the second Presidential debate.

    “Are there any new policies for Gun Control?”
    “Nope”
    “Not a Damn Thing”

    Renner may not have been great but the autopsy sketch, may be one of the best of the season.

“Film lived in a country or a land or a planet called reality and that is not the case today. There’s no reality anymore today. Everybody is reconciled with reality, that’s what happens today. I mean reality: tables, people walking, dogs, cars. You have to go back to the old days to see a door, a kitchen, a window, a small kid, some tears, things like that. I miss a world. I miss the kids, the dogs. I miss the street corners. I’m bored with realism today. You have to concentrate on the fight with reality. For me it’s a fight.”

“I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do nothing bitch. A DNB. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else. That’s why I think it’s hilarious if my body looks masculine or something like that. Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than fucking millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as fuck because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose because I’m not a do nothing bitch. It’s not very eloquently said but it’s to the point and maybe that’s just what I am. I’m not that eloquent, but I’m to the point.”
