Charles Barkley’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ was really not great and I AM VERY CRANKY

Saturday Night Live

Let me begin by saying that I am VERY CRANKY. I am suffering through the second cold in as many weeks, I don’t feel good, I can’t stop coughing and my head feels like it’s filled with cotton balls. So that might be why I did not enjoy last night’s Saturday Night Live, hosted by Charles Barkley for reasons that are still unclear. Is he in a movie? Is he selling a book? Is he running for office? Or is he just a random retired NBA player who now analyzes games who happens to be buddies with Lorne Michaels?

Or, alternatively, I didn’t like the episode because it wasn’t good. Maybe I didn’t enjoy the episode because there wasn’t a single sketch that was actually good, a sketch that mitigated all of the mediocre and outright bad sketches. Maybe I didn’t enjoy it because CHARLES BARKLEY CAN’T ACT. Maybe that was it.

A couple of programming notes: 1. NBC has apparently made all of their videos unwatchable outside of YouTube for reasons that are bullshit. The videos are still embedded below, but if you want to watch them, you’ll have to follow the link to YouTube. 2. I probably won’t have next week’s (or the week after that, if they have an episode then) up for a while. SORRY NOT SORRY.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to yell — like I said, I’m wearing my crankypants today.
