I think it’s going to be really weird looking back at tv shows around this time because of all the masks used within shows or in the audiences. It’ll definitely be a cool conversation to have with future generations who were either born around this time or after who don’t know about the insanity that was 2020 through however long we gotta deal with this shit before it’s handled.

If you watch this you can understand why this show has become so hilariously unfunny. No wonder these Simps are pissing their pants because of this so so deadly „Pandemic“. That’s basically the only funny thing there.

I absolutely love all the cast and crew. I wish I could host a retreat for them to relax and eat and drink and calm all their nerves. @SNL, do you accept care packages? I think Che needs one. And maybe a stuffed bear for Aidy? Does Keenan like crochet? My daughter makes a mean blanket. Alex- would you appreciate some hand written poetry? Lorne, you’re okay, yes? Makeup and wardrobe, name any request. We’re a very resourceful family. So thankful and appreciative of you all and glad you are through that first horribly difficult year.

I think that it’s worth considering that they’re all in NYC, which was being hit with an overwhelming amount of cases at the time they were gearing up to do the show again. Plus, they’re under a microscope. If the shows’ production had resulted in a deadly COVID outbreak, it would have been a major controversy. So I understand the nervousness for the first couple of shows

@El It has moments. The cold opens are often great, and Weekend Update with Jost and Che are hysterical. Occasionally they will have a funny skit, but they are few and far between. With talent like Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong (for example) the show has the potential to be much funnier than the toilet humor they usually resorts to

SNL Cast & Crew: "They expected all of the same with half of the personnel which caused a lot of emotional, physical, and mental strain. SNL: "Quick, add soft music and jargon about it being a team effort and maybe they'll forget how we put our show ahead of their well-being."

They should definitely 1: Have Bo Burnham on to host the show if he would ever want to do that. And, 2: Do a sketch where that new young cast member, Andrew Dismukes, plays a younger, more talented John Mulaney. And he does some of the same sketches that John has done before, but he's purposely and annoyingly trying to upstage the way John Mulaney did them. Then somewhere near the end of the sketch, the real John Mulaney comes out. Maybe it could be a weekend update feature.

I don't know why everyone else doesn't like Elon Musk but I don't like him for reasons such as this: He seems to be tryna appropriate mental illness or social handicaps, in this case Asperger's, as something you can just all of a sudden have. For someone who has Asperger's he sure is socially adept having a girlfriend and an ex wife. Another reason not to like him is what he named his son. It's like he's asking for the kid to get bullied or picked on. He literally gave him the most untraditional name that doesn't even look like it can be pronounced. Did he do that to look "cool" or "edgy" or to be relevant with the media? Celebs have done that before. Gave their children ridiculous names. For what reason would you do that to a kid other than to try and be relevant and get 15 minutes of fame or something? Problem is while you getting yo 15 the kid gon be stuck with with it all his life. It ain't gon be just for 15.
