We’re going to warn you right off the bat that this is probably going to be the most subjective SNL recap we’ve yet written. So if you like your SNL analysis free of emotional attachment, well, then you should look somewhere else (we’re sure the web might offer one, maybe two, other options), because, unfortunately, as we watched this last SNL, hosted by legendary cast member Dana Carvey, our reaction was intrinsically bound up in how we’ve watched this show since childhood, and how the this particular episode made us reexamine and reassess our feelings about the show, Dana Carvey and his SNL era. So, at the extreme risk of being self-indulgent, here we go.
Read on: We mourn our youth and ask the question: who is Dana Carvey?
Before we head into the weekend we just wanted to remind you that tomorrow night’s SNL is a repeat from 2000 with host Dana Carvey and musical guest Linkin Park. New episodes return ne…I’m sorry? What’s that? It’s not a repeat? It’s a a brand new episode? Really? C’mon. Really? With Linkin Park? Nooooo. Really?? Okay. Wow. What, was Crazy Town already booked? Jeez. Alright. I mean, you see why you’d think it’s a repeat, right? Right. But, hey, if it’s new, it’s new…so we’ve just been informed that tomorrow night’s SNL with host Dana Cavery and musical guest Linkin Park is, in fact, a new episode. So tune in to see if Carvey does George Bush and The Church Lady, and maybe catch Linkin Park playing their hit song.
In the mean time, here’s our hands-down favorite Dana Carvey sketch, a performance we’d often recreate throughout elementary school. My friend’s parents loved it.
