Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live to host the series' season premiere last night, and if you tuned in, you know she delivered the goods. Among the best sketches of the night was a parody of HBO's Girls, which had Fey playing a visiting "girl" from Albania named Blerta. While Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa are complaining about all of their major life crises, Blerta's just happy to have a roof over her head.
"You will never do better than this man. He is strong like ox. You are weak and soft and dressed like baby."
Now I'm craving a Girls vs. Mean Girls mashup. Regina George vs. HannahMarnieShoshannaJessa. So fetch. Make it happen, internet!
And in this one, Tina Fey and Taran Killam play airport employees who announce every type of flyer.
They deny boarding to people who clap when the plane lands. I expect these are the same people who clap at the end of a movie in the theater.
Next up, we have the e-Meth commercial, which includes a pretty fantastic cameo from the star of a certain AMC series...
"And it's blue, so you know it's good, bitch!"
Tina Fey did tease the possibility of a Breaking Bad star dropping by, and she delivered with Aaron Paul, who appeared a few times in the episode. The above was the best of his appearances. He also dropped by "Weekend Update" for the Drunk Uncle segment:
And then we have one of my favorite recurring last-sketches. Cecily Strong and Vanessa Bayer play ex-porn stars peddling something luxurious. In this case, it's Manolo Blahnik. Fey drops by to find out Shoe let the dogs out.
Finally, Cecily Strong has joined the "Weekend Update" news desk, and not as the drunk girl you don't want to get stuck talking to at a party either. Is she poised to take over when Seth Meyers leaves to host his late night talk show? It's possible they're testing her out. It'd be great to have another woman anchor. Here's Tina Fey passing the baton…
Watch the full episode here to see the opening sketch, Fey's monologue, which introduces the new featured players to the shameful act of background dancing, and Arcade Fire's musical performances.
