Critic Reviews for Saturday Night Live Season 38

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (5)

But most important were the cameras capturing the end of another era through the tears in the eyes of a cast that so clearly loved the time shared both backstage and onstage with Bill Hader and Fred Armisen.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

This is the second year in a row that SNL has had major goodbyes to address in its season finale (Kristen Wiig last time, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen here) and it's the second year in a row they've absolutely nailed it.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, energy at the service of indifferent writing starts to look desperate, and much of the show that followed was a letdown, with Vaughn seeming to lose interest as things ground on.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's an election year, and the host can pull off a lot of weird voices, so that's how the season kicked off. I guess we'll have to wait another week to see if Kate McKinnon can deliver the next Gilly.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

I never thought the show could top Amy Poehler's touching good-bye, but Kristen Wiig's farewell, set to the classic "She's Like A Rainbow," was lovely... Heartbreaking perfection.

    The writing is terrible. Colin Jost is not funny.
