Bradley Cooper (looking exactly like Ryan Hansen) laid one on Betty White during an otherwise interminable skit during last night's SNL 40th anniversary special. It was amusing because they really went for it. The kiss, not the show.
The show was...depressing. Not sure why? It just felt like less a celebration than a memorial service, and I think the black-tie crowd lent to that. Paul McCartney sounded really rough, which didn't help.
I think what really killed it for me is that it had a barrage of fragments from so many amazingly funny skits that put me in the mood to actually revisit them, but instead of offering up vintage fun, it would instead focus on unfunny tributes to some of the show's legendary entertainers. I mean, yay, Chris Rock admires Eddie Murphy...but why couldn't there be something funny for Murphy to then do about that?
And the new live stuff mostly sucked. All the celebs in the world don't make unfunny stuff funny.
I did like those short clips, and I have to say that Bill Murray was hysterical singing the love theme from Jaws.
Rolling Stone has a list of the 141 cast members ranked from best to worst. It would be hard to argue that the Top 3 are undeserving (but Mike Myers at #4???), yet I think Bill Murray belongs at the top. Poor Robert Downey Jr.!
I think the special worked as nostalgia but failed as comedy.
Who doesn't love The Golden Girls (1985—1992)?
If you're one of those who doesn't, please skip this mega-post, in which I struggle to count down my own personal 40 favorite guest-starring appearances on the show, with another 60 honorable mentions...for a total of 100.
I am counting anyone, outside of the four main cast members, who ever appeared on the show, whether it be a brief cameo, a one-off or a lengthy, recurring role. No animals, so “Dreyfuss” the dog, the piano-playing chicken and “Baby” the 29-year-old pig are outta luck.
There are many more appearances that just didn't grab me enough to warrant making my list, but that doesn't mean they were not valuable contributions to the show.
But the beauty of personal countdowns like these is that you can comment below with your own favorites and remind me of some I may have forgotten!
Of the 40 I picked, I provided as much info as humanly possible...and there are lots of criss-crossing connections and wonderfully HUH? factoids about what some of the lesser-known guest stars later did with their lives and careers.
Please share this if you're so inclined...and thank you for being a friend...
