Is SNL getting worse?
« on: October 22, 2018, 07:40:55 AM »
The Chris Farley and Adam Sandler era was silly and hilarious. I recall the skits showing George W and Gore debate, and Biden and Palin. I remember those being funny as heck. The bill Clinton impersonations were funny. But their Trump skits just suck. Is it just me? I actually laugh at him all the time. How and the hell is it funnier to watch HIM than a comedic skit of him!?  :lolsign:

Maybe it is just me. I just feel that if the script was a tad more clever and funny they could roast Trump big time. Instead it's like they're trying to goad him into tweeting something stupid. Maybe it's because alec Baldwin sucks too.

There is a big part of the answer.

If you have seen him do his skit once, the others are not much different.

Yes.

The constant political bullshit is merely because they have shitty hack loser writers with no fucking imagination or wit or a gifted sense of humor. They don't know what else to do. They CAN'T do anything else. There's a million fucking people moving to Hollywood with dreams of becoming writers. And these fucking assholes can't find someone with a good sense of humor? Bullshit. They don't WANT to look that hard, they'd rather whine and use their airtime to push political viewpoints than focus on making the show FUNNY and increasing ratings. They're a broadcast TV staple, they're gonna get enough viewers to keep the advertising money coming in no matter what they do. They have no real incentive to change shit.

What's always pissed me off more than anything about that show is how all the actors keep their stupid fucking eyeballs glued to the teleprompters like cats watching a laser point. Back in the day, they were semi-talented and had enough of a professional work ethic to memorize most of the lines.

Basically, they run out of ideas and just merely recycle stuff.

SNL is definitely not as good as what it used to be.

Server hosting provider says we were running afoul of their DDOS mitigation system. They've made changes to (hopefully) stop blocking UDP on the tastyspleen server IPs.

Strange, seems UDP packets are being blocked somewhere in the datacenter.

Oh, of course as I type this it starts working again. (Was about to submit a trouble ticket. Let's see if it holds up.)

Multiple people were experiencing it earlier. (fatknitty, etc) Several people timed out and DC'd in spurts. It's apparently doing it again.
