Personally, I didn't find the tech talk sketch racist, but I think it has the much broader problem of being built on an extremely faulty premise. By establishing that the characters doing the complaining are writers for major tech blogs, they are saying that those people should not do their job (which is writing reviews of technology) because the people who actually build the tech live in terrible conditions. I think the sketch would have worked better if the people doing the complaining were random civilians because then the first world problems premise makes more sense.

I am offended that no actual bees portrayed the BEES in the Bees sketches. There is a lack of Bee actors in Hollywood.
Also Seinfeld's BEE Movie was the "SOUL PLANE" of bee moves.

Good job everyone.
Monty Python and The Kids In the Hall were all clearly sexist pigs for dressing in drag (is it FUNNY to be a woman to you, KEVIN MCDONALD?), when they could have hired women to play all those parts.

There were an unusually large amount of sketches cut from last week's show:
CUT - Segment - Do’s & Don’ts: Debate Prep Edition
> Seth Meyers gives the presidential candidates tips on how to handle the second debate. Example: “Obama, DON’T do what Joe Biden does. There is only one person that works for, and it’s Joe Biden.” Typical Seth material.
CUT - Commentary - Bill & Bonnie (Tim Robinson & Aidy Bryant)
> Introduced as Seth’s parents’ friends, the couple talks about the vice presidential debate before losing focus due to various tangents, from meeting Saturday Night Live cast members backstage (“That Bobby Armisen is sure funny!”, “We’re looking for you, Tina Poehler!”) to Bill’s non-jokes that Bonnie laughs at (Aidy really hammed it up). Husband Bill had magnetic reading glasses that he kept taking on and off his face despite never reading anything.
> Both Tim and Aidy ended up being shut out of the live show, and replacing the umpteenth Jean K. Jean commentary with this would have helped even the cast out a bit.
CUT - Filmed Commercial - Donkey Punch The Ballot!
> DJ Super Soak (Jason Sudeikis) and Lil Blaster (Nasim Pedrad) tell us what to expect from the election-themed festival presented by Under-Underground Records. MC George Castanza (Jay Pharoah) tells us about his new charity, “Keep Old People From Voting”. Butt Dave dies within seconds of Ass Dan (both played by Bobby Moynihan). After the usual non-sequitir band names and obscure references, a Ruth Bader Ginsburg impressionist (Kate McKinnon) and a politician nick-named “Tough Cuts” Johnson (Christina Applegate) round out the guest list (“Chong is cut; Cheech......stays”.). DJ Super Soak discovers that Lil Blaster is possibly under 18. She doesn’t give him a straight answer but says that he is definitely going to jail.
CUT - Live Sketch - Female Empowerment Week
> An all-girl private school is celebrating Female Empowerment Week. A teacher (Kate McKinnon) brings in guest speakers to talk to the class, in the form of her favorite band, Fuchsia (Christina Applegate = bass, Vanessa Bayer = lead vox, Aidy Bryant = drums, Fred Armisen = guitar). The band members encourage the class to pursue anything you want, as long as you rock. When asked, one student (Cecily Strong) says she wants to be a doctor. Fuchsia plays a song, “Girls Can Rock”, with lyrics like “You don’t need med school / You just need to rock”. Another student (Nasim Pedrad) wonders why a boy is in their group. The drummer replies, “Girls rock, but some boys also rock. It’s really on a case-by-case basis.” The teacher admits she still loves the band, but asks them to leave if they won’t play anything relevant to Female Empowerment.
CUT - Live Sketch - The Show Must Go On
> Mark McGrath (Jason Sudeikis) of Sugar Ray hosts this VH1 countdown show. After recent events with Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber puking on stage, he takes us through other memorable mishaps during live performances:
> Little Richard (Jay Pharoah) sits on his balls twice while playing “Tutti Fruitti”
> Janis Joplin (Christina Applegate) gives birth and immediately attempts to pawn the baby while singing “Piece Of My Heart”
> Fred Schneider (Taran Killam) of The B-52’s (also Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong) suffers a peanut allergy
> Meat Loaf (Bobby Moynihan) passes a kidney stone while singing “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)”
> Sinbad (Kenan Thompson) gets shot during a stand-up set
I bet they'll probably reuse the Donkey Punch the Ballot sketch in two weeks for the pre-election show, but just replace Applegate's part (or cut it out).
Holy crap LCK is hosting in two weeks! Awesome!
The majority of this episode wasn't much, but I did kind of like that short film with Bruno Mars where he played the guy in the mouse costume. It was kind of bittersweet and reminded me of the short films they would do on SNL during the '70s, like the Tom Schiller and Gary Weiss ones. I wonder if they are going to be continuing to do those with Samberg and the Lonely Island guys gone. Unfortunately the closing credits were cut off so there was no way of identifying who wrote/directed this short.
And yay for Louis hosting on November 3rd! That will be really interesting, I can't really picture Louis playing characters or doing impressions, he's pretty much always played a variation of himself in everything he's done.
I have a hard time picturing Louie saying "We have a great show, .Fun is here! So stick around and we'll be right back!"
"She walked out of the room using that pretty ass I mentioned earlier to propel herself forward. I felt like my dick had been kicked up into my mouth, making me throw up from having a dick in my mouth"
I enjoyed the Bruno Mars episode for the most part, and really really liked the "Sad Mouse" short film.
Of course, Louis CK hosting SNL is remarkable! That day (November 3) is already going to be the busiest (but fun) day for me, but adding that show to the list at the end of the night is going to be amazing.
I was big on the sad mouse sketch too. I also really enjoyed the Pandora sketch. It was the right level of stupid. Also, even though I'm not crazy about his songs, I'm a total sucker for any time the band does synchronized dancing. And, as always, I loved the Stefon sketch. I wouldn't mind seeing him host again. I thought he was solid.
It will be interesting to see Louis hosting. I'm excited.
Bruno Mars is an inoffensive black gentleman and I liked him
he sprung that shampoo joke too early. we all imagine you with a hat on, bro!
