I've really enjoyed SNL lately. With the exception of the episode that aired on 11/14, it's been pretty darn good, and here's why:
1. Ridiculous original musical numbers.
2. Unnecessary and excessive violence.
3. Bill Hader, Andy Samberg and Will Forte (not the best Falconer sketch, but you get the idea).
4. Brilliant satires.
6. Laser Cats.
7. Childish name calling.
**For the record, I don't care much for Bobby Moynaughan or Fred Armisen. I'm also lukewarm toward Kristen Wiig and Keenan Thompson.
[Update 2-4-09] - Laser Cats are back! And McGruber has finally met his equal.
