Now I remember why I stopped watching SNL following the Murphy/Piscopo era.

It might have been funnier if the guest was a hard core swamp people type.

I only made it about 20 seconds before giving up.

I'm about the only SNL defender left that I know of. I am a lifelong fan, no matter how bad it gets. But I cannot defend that skit. Pretty sure I fast forwarded through half of it.

Now "The Californians" on the other hand, I would line up for a midnight screening of!

This second clip even has a SFMM reference at around the 3:45 mark. You know, to keep it relevant.

That didn't have any resemblance to the show that I remember watching a few year ago. The show I saw did not have a guest acting as Indiana Jones and was actually pretty neat to see. When making fun of something, shouldn't it at least be a little like the real thing?

No.
I was selected to be in the show, and as much as I insisted I was capable of playing Indiana Jones himself, I was relegated to the chorus anyway. Our job was to cry really hard when Indy was in trouble and cheer really loud when he saved the day. I made sure I was in front, and was a total ham. It was fun, and we each got paid a dollar for our work.

You got paid?? I got picked for a show..I forget what it was called..at Disney in the mid 90's. I played Edward R. Murrow..or maybe it was Dave Garroway.. at a news desk reporting on the day Disneyland opened. I didn't get a dollar or anything else, and I had to wear a TIE!!!

Might have been called Superstar Theater or some such. I think it was at (then) MGM Studios.

Last week's episode was hit or miss, but Drake was impressive. He's got a lot of potential to be a regular SNL host.

The funniest part of the skit was reading the reactions on the Disney fan sites nitpicking the details. :)

That wasn't the point. They take something fun like theme parks and suck all of the fun out of them.

Yeah, but your timing was as good as any punchline.

Hey Gonch, I don't think that I was being overly humorless, I just didn't find the skit funny. The guy that was fake hosting the show was kind of funny in his mannerisms, but I didn't get the point of any of the rest of the skit. In contrast, Krustyland on the Simpsons also pokes fun a Disney but is very funny.

Yes, we got paid, really. It wasn't exactly union scale, but they did say they were required to pay us something. Then after the show while we were all getting out of our fake costumes, my dollar blew outta my pocket and went skittering across the stage. I went after it, of course, and they were all like "Sir? Sir! Please stay out of that area, it's restricted" and then I was all like "um... Sorry, but it's my hard-earned dollar, and I'm goin after it..."

I wasn't pointing anyone out or even necessarily disagreeing, Natas.

It was just that it was an entire thread of everyone going on about how unfunny the skit was and then Jeff posts, "Nothing is funny to those idiots"

That was funny to me.

So *someone* got some comedic value in the end as a result of the skit...? :-P
