Saturday Night Live Recap: J.K. Simmons Finds His Tempo

It would be a stretch to call J.K. Simmons a comedic actor. This is, lest we forget, a guy whose first famous role was Oz prison rapist Vern Schillinger (a role he reprised in an SNL walk-on in the '90s.) Comedy is definitely in the guy's wheelhouse, though. He's spent... More »

Togetherness Series Premiere Recap: Of Boone’s Farm and Cottonelle

The worst thing someone could say about HBO’s Togetherness, the first television show created by indie filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass, is that it appears to be precisely what you would imagine a Duplass-helmed, HBO comedy would look like.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Worthless Man-Hours

In addition to his simply being hilarious, I love Craig Robinson’s Doug Judy (a.k.a. the Pontiac Bandit, a.k.a. Big Sugar) because he opens up a portal to another world where Brooklyn Nine-Nine is less of a workplace comedy and more of a cop show with jokes. That’s an exceptionally hard... More »

The Comeback Recap: But Can She Act?

A new theory: The Comeback was being meta in its first episode of the season, when Valerie Cherish remarked, hilariously, that a dramedy is a comedy without the laughs. Because as of last night, that’s what I’m convinced we now have on our hands. To me, the episode was riddled... More »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: 2-Mile Heimlich

When Brooklyn Nine-Nine was originally announced as a project, I was admittedly tickled by the idea of Frank Pembleton going toe-to-toe with Andy Samberg, but I wasn’t sure if Braugher could translate his gravitas to actual comedy, or if he’d just be used as a really intense straight man. But... More »

Chris Pratt Hosts ‘Saturday Night Live’ [Recap]

Full disclosure — I really wanted to like Chris Pratt on SNL. He has all the right ingredients to succeed on a show like Saturday Night Live, but unfortunately no one thought to give him great physical comedy that he could sink his teeth into. Show More Summary

Great Job, Internet!: Recap 40 years of hiring and firing with this chart of SNL turnover
