    For the 50th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, they should air the first episode (October 11th, 1975) as vintage. Great way to show how far Saturday Night Live has come.

    Rachel Brosnehan. Fast talking, quick witted, incredible memory, brash, very natural, likable and beautiful. What a great talent as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Obviously I am a big fan and happy to see her on SNL.

    I've been watching clips of her from this episode and until I watched her monologue, I had zero idea who she was even though I watch Ms. Maisel. She somehow is unrecognizable without the 50s makeup, hair, and clothes!

    So yea, in Russia in 1982, SNL was as funny as it is today Then when Crocodile and old people selling prescriptions to pay the rent in Russia was funny here. Now your not funny here and it is as bad as it was in Russia in 1982, here. Now that's funny.

    Folks, you're not always going to like what you see on SNL and you're definitely not going to like every skit. From what I've seen and heard about SNL, the monologue is usually one of the last things to be written and is given low priority, it's a throwaway, it's meant just to introduce who is starring and that's it, think of it as a bit of a warm-up.

    Krocodil or however it’s spelled is nothing new. It was going around years ago when I was using heroin and I had friends who would shoot up then their skin and muscle would start to disintegrate away like a flesh-eating bacteria. I think the actual Russian stuff was being confused with bad batches of tar coming from Mexico but I don’t know. Either way, it’s odd to see a joke done on it that doesn’t entirely make sense

    I thought Rachel Brosnahan would make it better but Saturday Night Live is so far gone its hasn't been good for 20 years. My boyfriend and I watched the whole thing last night and it was an huge mistake. Stay up late for forced and tired "jokes", how are they winning awards? Let alone still making new episodes. This isn't about the political stand they take, its strictly how none of the jokes are funny. I chuckled once when they talk about what happened on Florida because of it actually happened, nothing else. Saturday Night Live is only the shows that try way too hard and not at all at the same time. Its getting really pitiful, just stop.

    I guess she's not as funny in person as her character on the show. I'm watching the 2nd season of her show now and it's really funny unlike this monologue that was kind of depressing.

    Shit! So I just googled Krocodil 🤢🤢🤮😱
    (Just don’t, trust me!!)
    How stupid do people have to be to inject that shit into their body? Knowing what it does??
    (Literally rots your flesh away around the site you inject it 🤮)
    Doctors estimate that from the point an addict first takes Krokodil, their life expectancy is a little over two years.
    Like Darwinism on fast forward.
    (Was gonna say ‘on crack’, but that’d be poor taste😱😂)
