Saturday Night Live, April 2nd, 2011
Host and Musical Guest: Elton John.

The only time I’ve ever seen Elton John act is in The Country Bears movie!

ESPN Classic.
I love that that audience did not cheer or clap for the return of Will Forte. No one even noticed he left the show! Doesn’t help when the same sketches keep coming back with little to no changes.

BBC Special Report: Knights of the Realm.
Fairly entertaining because I like fantasy plotlines. And I enjoyed Elton John’s shameless plug for The Lion King.

Digital Short: Lazer Cats the Musical.
That was…too long! I've never been that into the lazer cats. I remember the last one being okay, but this one just dragged.

I guess Tom Hanks is the secret co-host?

Royal Wedding.
Kind of liked the punk song at the end. But way too much build up.

The Silver Screen.
Elton John was actually really funny in this! I also enjoyed the setup/contrast of classic films to Suckerpunch.

Gay Cowboy.
This could have just been really obvious, but it was surprisingly funny. Partially just because of Elton John’s strange voice and delivery. He kinda reminds me of Paul Williams. Also the twist actually made for a good ending.

Closing thought: Not a lot for the female actresses to do in this episode.
