'SNL' Review: Walking Tall with Chris Hemsworth

One of the bigger frustrations for those of us following SNL's 40th season is that, despite the show's ongoing ups and downs, this current version of SNL is one we want to get behind. Kate McKinnon, Taran Killam, and Cecily Strong are as fun to watch and dominant in sketches as previous eras' stars were (regardless how rosey nostalgia has tinted alums like Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg), and the video segments are as sharply executed as they've ever been. What SNL has been lacking are an overall confidence in its assets and a consistent understanding of how to deploy them effectively.

The stronger episodes this season have featured east cast member putting his or her best foot forward. For example, [...]

Kelly Oxford Sells Script; Is Very Successful Outside of Twitter

In honor of Twittererer/writer Kelly Oxford selling a film script to Warner Bros, I'm going to try to write this entire post in 140 charact DAMN! Well, that was impossible. The film is called Son of a Bitch and as she puts it, is about a “young stoner who tries to maintain her popular party image even after discovering she’s pregnant.” I hope that means she does all these drugs and the film ends with her popping out some mutant baby that has super strength and laser eyes but is like a good guy, you know, and he saves the hospital from being blown up by The Joker, [...]

Joss Whedon is a Pooping Expert or a Bird

Sadly, BriTANick's new video "The Coach" isn't a remake of the Craig T. Nelson tour de force, Coach. Not sadly, it stars Joss Whedon as a bird. Ok, he's not a bird. You're a bird. Where does the pee go? If you remember, the BriTANick guys were part of the Don of Whe's Much Ado About Nothing movie that shot last fall so they are all best friends. Such good friends that they were able to convince the director of the soon to be giantest movie evers,The Avengers, to strap on a bird beak. Or maybe he's always had a bird beak, because he's a bird. You're a bird. [...]
