Mindboggling that Brandon Flynn got naked with Sam Smith.Brandon really messed this up with Sam Smith. Should have gotten Sam to the altar (without a pre-nup) and taken some of his money in a divorce. I have a feeling Brandon is going to end up with some old queen florist or reality star.

Can't they ever get some more alternative-music genre guest performer types? More country? Jazz artists? A few artists who are more veteran and iconic for one-off performances, like Smokey Robinson? It just seems more often we get the bargain-basement, dumbed-down, lowest common denominator rinse and repeat guests like Smith, or else Thee Stallion, Manaj, ughh... There's a lot more musical diversity out there they could showcase, instead of Lorne's constant pandering to just one or a couple of groups.

One of the better shows of the season.

Aubrey was really good in everything she was given, except the final black-and-white thing, and that could just be from exhaustion. They put her in almost every sketch.

The Santos opener was meh. Loved The Black Lotus and the Parks & Rec reunion.

The less said about Sam Smith the better. But damn, Sharon Stone continues to look amazing.

I realized this past episode that they do not have a strong impressionist anymore (Cecily Strong or even the loathsome McKinnon). They have no one who can do MTG or Pirro. They better find someone fast because a skit filled with men (the sports debacle) shows they need a political female impressionist stat.

Every gay sketch is nothing but a mash-up of the most tired stereotypes.

I finally got around to watching this. Geez, how could the writers have so spectacularly failed to craft sketches for someone as comically gifted as Aubrey Plaza?

The Miss Universe thing was beyond stupid. What was with all the yelling? And speaking of yelling, Sarah Sherman has one volume setting - LOUD. God, she annoys me.

The only bits that were mildly funny were the Black Lotus and the game night sketch, although that one just suddenly ended. These writers don't know how to wrap up a sketch.

I chuckled mildly when Bowen Yang was George Santos on Weekend Update and said his grandparents were the ones who said to Anne Frank, "Hey, you should be writing this down."

And was that Sharon Stone in that last skit? Why?

Don't get me started on Sam Smith. "They" were atrocious.
