I hate to disagree with Miss Diahann Carroll, but Kerry Washington is a crap actress...er blacktress.
The musical guest will be Eminem rapping about how he's going to beat up a faggot.
Kerry Washington is an OVERACT-RESS.
Who gives a shit
She definitely seems like the type of actress who can't do comedy.
She has two facial expressions on that show. Angry and REALLY angry. Her O face is the same as her angry face. Her angst face is the same as her O face. Why didn't she win an Emmy?
She LOVES M&M. She said so on Jimmy Fallon. Fuck her.
Everyone's going to be playing "Try and Spot the Baby Bump."
Who should play Fitz, Cy, and Daddy Pope on the Scandal skit?
I LOVE her!! I LOVE Scandal!! That show leaves me stunned each week! I can't wait for it to come on! Kerry is gorgeous!!
Wow. It took an entire ten responses, but finally someone sees Kerry and SCANDAL the way I do. I can't wait, either, R10.
Who knew Kerry had so much haters? It's DL, why should i be surprised...
Scandal sucks. It's pathetic to see the poor ABC news affiliates have to gush and moan about how much they love it. This show sucks. Stop. Period. Nothing to see there. Please move along. If you want fast talking dialog, go to Netflix and type in "The West Wing." You will get considerably less second-hand embarrassment than the lame/retarded "Scandal."
[italic]Scandal[/italic] is ridiculous, but it doesn't suck. It's fun every week.
FOAD, R13. You don't matter.
I don't "hate" anyone. I just don't love this show. And I think Kerry is a mediocre actress. They just keep recycling the same plot points over and over. Listening. To. Huck. Talk. Makes. Me. Short. Of. Breath. Tony Goldwyn has really aged in three short years and I don't find his sex scenes with Olivia even remotely hot or erotic. Scandal is vastly overrated. Deal.
R16, this show is a train wreck and I never watch soap operas day or evening. But for some reason I can't take my eyes off this show. And I think it is a hit. It started off as a filler with just a handful of episodes, but it really must have taken off because last year it was on with a few more episodes in the spring, but this fall it was one of the fall regulars.
Scandal is an adrenalin rush. I love it! Do all you haters hate James Bond movies too? just suspend disbelief and have fun. Kerry Washington is a Goddess!
"I want you."
"No, never again."
"Here on my desk."
The President is an acquaintance rapist!
I liked how much Liv and Fitz were [italic]wanting[/italic] each other this week. I grew alarmed when Mellie came to Liv with her plan to put them back together, nominally for the good of the campaign, but we know where this leads.
Personally, I'd much rather have Scott Foley fuck my lights out -- I thought I'd die from his gratuitous shirtlessness in this ep; he even shaved his chest -- than Tony Goldwyn, but I'm not Liv.
Mellie for President,
R20, I cannot believe your drooling over Scott Foley (Joke)...that man does not hold a candle to Tony Goldwyn. Tony's body is the truth. That man defies his age.
Lucky us, R22. One for you, one for me (not that I wouldn't let Tony Goldwyn hold his candle to me, either). But I've had a crush on Scott Foley -- both Scotts, actually -- since the first episode of FELICITY.
Did anyone watch her on SNL? I thought she did a good job. Some of the skits were actually funny. I have to admit that I didn't get the skit with Obama at first. There has been considerable gossip that Michelle doesn't like Kerry OR Oprah. I thought Michelle was leaving because she didn't want to run into Oprah! Fuck me, I'm thicke.
I think she is a VERY limited actress. She tends to overact a great deal on Scandal.
I thought she was terrific in her sketches. Showed me that she was a real actress.
Then Eminem, damn I want his naked ass. Lots of pictures of it around and I LIKE IT I LIKE IT.
Does he fuck women or is he gay?
I liked her more than I thought I would; pretty doesn't always do comedy well, but Kerry does; she had great timing and did a great Oprah.
I liked Kerry just fine. Whoever said she can't do comedy was, well, wrong.
As usual, the writing sucked on a couple of skits, Cartoon Catchphrase and Date or Diss. No one could have made those funny.
I loved the cartoon catchphrase gameshow. That was funny. How could you not like that. That big girl cracks me up.
It was dumb, repetitive, and predictable.
Washington was shockingly funny. She seemed better than some of the regulars, to be honest.
A weak episode. Opening sketch, traditionally the strongest of the show, never really went anywhere.
From there, it was downhill.
Kerry did the best she could with the material given her. The writing was just especially weak this week.
However, I did like Cartoon Catchphrases and the black talk show critiquing Obama's performance.
Did anyone else notice that Eminme looked " Sick" ? Perhaps Miss Elton John knows something we don't know.
R33, why do you think it is fresh and clever to call Elton Miss Elton John? Is this your way of trying to make a joke?
Biggest laugh for me was Enema sampling, of all people, Billy Squier!
You know this jerk is running out of ideas when he's reduced to sampling Billy Squier!
What's the matter Mister Em, more talented rockers won't allow you to use their music?
I have read most of the recent SNL threads on the DL. Something funny going on here. Not a word about Eminem.He is notorious for his talk about faggots and the like, with a recent especially ugly rap, yet not a word. I can see why he has had a career because he was very good and I don't even like rap.
This thread has very few posters, mostly negative, centered on Kerry herself. She didn't write and perform the show by herself.
Had Britteney Spears been on, you would be jacking off like idiots over her.
I suspect there is some racism going on here.
Does anyone know what happened to Tony Goldwyn's eyebrows? They disappeared years ago...
The parody of What Did the Fox Say was clever, funny and well produced.
Tony Goldwyn and Andrew Lincoln share similar facial traits no?
Not racism, r36. If you read more carefully, most posters feel Kerry did the best she could with really poor material. That's not her fault. At all. Nor is it racist.
I liked the song parody, too, R38, though I'd never heard the original.
If Marshall spoke his lyrics on a Broadway stage, he'd win a Tony. He is that good.
on the stream of KWashington episode provided by NBC.com, the Eminem segments have been taken out leaving viewers with 1 hour of sketch and no musical segments.
Kerry has gotten great reviews for this weekend's SNL...she came in and did a fantastic job! It was the highest rated SNL since Justin Timberlake hosted back in March, so she must have done something right.
Who cares about Eminem? He was lip synching during his performances...
R43, SNL has always done that. I watch On Demand and the musical guest's numbers are always removed. I think it has to do with re-broadcasting their music/performance for free. The record labels probably forbid it.
Just a Guess
M&M will be the victim of a drive-by.
Watching Jay Pharaoh in the live skits is an exercise in tedium. What a terrible performer.
Poor R35, he is much too stupid and out of touch to realize that Squier's song The Big Beat is one of the most sampled of all time inthe hip hop community. So, it is not that surprising that Em would use another of Squier's tunes to sample.Meanwhile, Squier is sitting back collecting some big bucks, so I doubt he gives a shit.
