SNL takes a turn for the weird in this surreal, sometimes sincere, and all-around unexpected episode helmed by straight man Liev Schreiber.
Maybe by the end of the season, Davidson will join Eddie Murphy as the only current cast members to host Saturday Night Live.
If the sketches that followed weren't killers, they at least gave Schreiber plenty of opportunities to shine in odd, compelling ways.
I found the whole thing embarrassing, not only because it's the latest in a long history of SNL capitulation to conservative indignation... but also because it was indicative of the show's schmaltzy centrism.
Great Saturday Night Live episodes can sneak up on you... Aside from a few spots, SNL utilized Schreiber's less-is-more approach to great affect in both live and filmed segments.
This episode comes in hot with the weirdness, and bless its heart for keeping that weirdness going the whole time.
I'll say this much for Liev Schreiber - I've barely noticed that he's hosting tonight's show, and he's in a lot of the sketches.
McKinnon's creepy take on the former Alabama senator has been a delightful distraction from Alec Baldwin's lazy Donald Trump impression...
It makes me wonder if the midterms, combined with Davidson's poor joke and the subsequent reaction, haven't inspired something of a political shift for the show.
Host Liev Schreiber did a surprisingly great job for an actor best known for heavy drama.
If you tuned out of this weekend's Saturday Night Live following a nervous Schreiber's awkward opening monologue, you missed what was easily the strongest episode of the still-young season.
This episode oddly had the mismatched feel of something from SNL's yesteryear, which were the days of songs and silly sketches...
This sketch and song are both so well-produced that it comes close to feeling like the greatness of a good Lonely Island music video.
