My Favorite Sketch From Miley Cyrus’s #SNL: Bar Talk
It’s usually not a good sign when the best sketch (or at least my favorite sketch) doesn’t involve the host, but I actually liked this episode. Miley Cyrus is a weird host, because she’s a weird person, and sometimes she tries to push her ‘edginess’ too far. I get she’s transition from child star Hannah Montana to early 20’s Miley Cyrus, but sometimes it’s a little much. Her musical performances were odd if not touching, and she did a pretty good job as host as well. I liked the ‘When Harry Met Sally’ and Kyle Mooney marriage bits, but my favorite sketch was easily ‘Bar Talk’. Kate McKinnon does a great Hillary Clinton, and although the character is still in it’s early stages, she and Hillary had a great back and forth during this sketch. The gay marriage bit was the most important part, especially since McKinnon is SNL’s first openly gay cast member to come out while still a member of the current cast. Hillary’s trump impression was funny too, and although I have no clue who I’ll be voting for in the presidential election, it’s good for the candidates to show their human side. Overall a good but not great episode, but with Amy Schumer & Tracy Morgan on tap, SNL should be hitting it’s stride sooner rather than later.
