In his first outing as host, Martin Freeman took Saturday Night Live to Middle Earth by way of The Office, as well as Fargo, N.D. in an amiable if standard-issue show that featured a Weekend Update segment that was mostly DOA, that terrific take on The Office, a dopey Fargo-drawn bit about waterbeds and a funny, if way-overlong sketch called “Sump’n Claus” in which everyone who’s naughty gets a cash reward from that other sort-of Santa, played by Kenan Thompson. Check out the video clip above if you need a little sump’n too.
As for the musical talent, Charli XCX, well there was neither music nor talent, though there were hot pants — but that’s just my opinion. What’s yours?
