When the sketches hit their marks, the results aren't just comedy, but pretty good social commentary, too.

If there's anything quantifiably different about this season, it's the confidence of Armisen and Brownstein, now assured that there's mileage in their concept and an audience for it.

I've always appreciated the way the show doesn't so much skewer modern society as poke at it from odd angles.

Armisen and Brownstein's ambition is on display in a fourth season that enriches the show's world by allowing the supporting characters to carry more of the show than before.
