SNL writers did Khal Drago dirty, squandering the gift that is Momoa.
SNL could probably stand to take a break from reworking classic books, movies, etc. for sketches.
Not every huge, game goofball is The Rock, is what I'm saying, as Momoa lacked the immediacy and confidence in the role to make his smitten musclehead's chumminess as charming as Johnson's in basically the same part.
[Momoa's] enthusiasm must have been infectious at 30 Rock all week - and it livened things up just enough to make some of the episode's stranger moments work.
SNL has shown itself adept at slapstick, so it's disappointing it wasn't able to make better use of Momoa's physicality.
The show seems tempted to trap guys like Momoa into playing lunkheads or beefcakes, Momoa goes all out in playing them.
In SNL history, few guests or hosts have been as reliably obvious about reading cue cards as De Niro...
SNL played down the politics and amplified the absurd, resulting in an episode that was consistently fun, if not always funny.
Momoa is meant for SNL. I just hope that the show can live up to him (It cannot).
Jason Momoa brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the show that it's going to be hard to top.
Even with the arrival of someone as excited and larger-than-life as Momoa - a man whose size, excitability and goofiness should be easy fodder for comedy writers - SNL couldn't make it work all the time.
Played silly to absolute perfection.
[Momoa] meant to make his SNL first time memorable and put some hard effort into his skits. Some of them were really cute if not downright funny.
