Mid-Day Musings – Some Highlights from “SNL” at Home

Mid-Day Musings – Some Highlights from “SNL” at Home

This weekend, “Saturday Night Live” did a special “at home” quarantine edition, with COVID-19 survivor TOM HANKS as the host and CHRIS MARTIN from COLDPLAY as the musical guest.

Obviously, it was very different from their normal shows, and it wasn’t “live.”

The cast appeared remotely in pre-taped, Zoom-like solo bits, from their homes.  They all called-in for a group opening, and Kate McKinnon called out, quote, “Live from Zoom, it’s sometime between March and August!”

Tom Hanks did a monologue from his kitchen.

Larry David appeared as Bernie Sanders

Naturally, there was a lot of stuff about “Tiger King”, and social-distancing skits, including one about Zoom digital meetings, which was probably VERY relatable for a lot of America right now.

And a sketch mocking about there being no sports

It’s unclear if there will be any more quarantine episodes of “SNL”. However, even if it wasn’t a strong episode, you can appreciate the level of effort that went into just making it happen in the first place.
