Sort of a weaker episode this week coming off the holiday. A lot of recycled material. The "Politics Nation" sketch didn't seem to have one written joke. Vanessa Bayer is always endearing as Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy but the routine is over-familiar now. And why Jedediah Atkinson completely removed form his logical historical context? Wasn't as funny as the first time. And the cherry on top was a teen boy band as the musical guest. eek.
Still there were some redeeming highlights. Here's what I liked.
Smart, broad, historical.
Very funny. This season has had a lot of smart skits about race (see 12 days not a slave).
