HBO’s Westworld is quickly becoming my new obsession, a dense and complex science fiction tale that is full of wild ideas and chilling commentary that also manages to be…well, really, really fun to watch. It’s one thing to make a smart and scary show about the base nature of mankind, but it’s another thing altogether to also make it a surprisingly funny examination of interactive entertainment. And it’s yet another thing to set the whole think in a futuristic theme park themed as the old west and populated withe lifelike robots who may be on the verge of gaining self-awareness.

If you’re all caught up after last night’s episode, the preview for the third episode, titled “The Stray,” has arrived online.

Few hours of television have given me as much to think about and dwell over as “Chestnut,” the second episode of Westworld. No fancy introductions to this one. Let’s just dive right in.

Lin-Manual Miranda Saturday Night Live Monologue

Over the weekend we already took a closer look at all the best and worst sketches from the episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. We already highlighted the obvious but hilarious parody of Stranger Things, but we figured that starting off Monday morning by calling your attention to Miranda’s incredible Hamilton inspired opening monologue rap.

Lin-Manuel Miranda took the signature track “My Shot” from Hamilton and adapted it so that it was all about making a childhood dream of his come true by hosting Saturday Night Live. It’s fast-paced, well-written and just plain awesome. Read More »

Lin-Manuel Miranda Saturday Night Live

Last night brought another first-time Saturday Night Live host to Studio 8H with Hamilton co-creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda taking the stage. As expected, there were plenty of musical jokes to be made (including an incredible opening monologue rap from our host), but the episode turned out to be rather average, despite the presence of some fantastic sketches throughout the night.

Stranger Things Saturday Night Live Sketch

Last night, Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time (our recap is coming later today). It’s not everyday that a Broadway star is brought in to host the late night sketch comedy series, but that’s just how big Hamilton has become. In addition to all the musical jokes that were made, including plenty of rapping from Miranda, one of the standout sketches featured an outstanding parody of Stranger Things.

New cast members Mikey Day and Alex Moffat open the sketch as The Duffer Brothers, and they explain that they wanted to get a head start on answering some of the questions fans had after watching the first season of Stranger Things. One of the biggest questions revolves around one of the kid’s parents, who were noticeably absent while the kids were out during all hours of the night. Thankfully, Saturday Night Live brings those parents to life for us, and the result is thoroughly entertaining.
