The Californians Struggle to Cope with Terrible Traffic and Exaggerated AccentsS

Watching last night's SNL was like eating plain yogurt in that it was somehow satisfying even though all you could taste was your own breath. Strangely, with so many opportunities for jokes about Josh Brolin's alcoholism, the episode was pretty tame. A "Laser Cats" sketch directed by Steven Spielberg has gotten some play this morning, but it's slow and really just a long, occasional funny mash-up of lines from real Steven Spielberg movies. For a few hilarious moments in the soap opera parody of California, however, Bill Hader struggled to keep his shit together as Fred Armisen complained with typical West Coast aplomb about navigating the perilous freeway traffic.
