‘You Need an Agent of Chaos’
This week on The Incomparable I talked with Philip Michaels, Lex Friedman, Lisa Schmeiser, Monty Ashley, and David J. Loehr about the best people to ever appear on “Saturday Night Live”. But because I just can’t help myself, we structured the whole thing like a fantasy sports draft.
Why build fantasy sports teams when you can build a fantasy sketch-comedy team? On the occasion of the debut of season 40 of “Saturday Night Live,” we assemble six different SNL fantasy casts from the very first cast to the most recent vintage. Almost everyone gets a Phil Hartman! But only after a whole bunch of rules debates.
Also posting over on The Incomparable this week:
- Hollywood Reporter TV Critic Tim Goodman and I broke down the new TV season premieres, including what to watch for in the coming week.
Glenn Fleishman, Dan Moren, and I reviewed this week’s episode of “Doctor Who,” “The Caretaker.”
Scott McNulty and Monty Ashley broke down “I, Mudd”, one of the most humorously ridiculous episodes of the original “Star Trek,” which contains a couple of my favorite scenes of anything ever.
And in non-Incomparable podcasting, I appeared on the Preservation State podcast with Philip Mozolak, Christopher Radliff, and Brett Terpstra.
