I'll find the link:
Yeah, I knew all that but the andra part. come on its not like i actually WATCHED the show..there are too many gay shows(literally, GAY) on tv these days. LOL

Uh.... I don't have a problem with Gays. And I don't consider them to be taking over. And the word is homophobic. Not sexist or racist.

I think the television networks these days are using gay men too much to make their shows funnier..it's like they're taking advantage of the poor guys, like Queer Eye.

Well, the impression wouldn't be accurate anymore, but you have to remember when it was filmed. I think that at the time it aired, the impression was great. Britney was just starting out when "Lick My Baby Back Behind" aired, but I'm guessing that you are referring to the Cribs sketch from #601. It might not make sense what I am saying, but I thought at the time the sketch came out it was very relevant and accurate, although I know that maybe if you are just seeing it for the first time now it might seem bad to you. I don't really know how to describe it.

Like I said earlier, sometimes its not neccasary for the impression to be accurate if the material is hilarious. Great examples being James as Andra and Nicole S. as Britney. They got away with mediocre impressions because the sketches were well written and well recieved. I think Daniele could get away with the Eve impression, only because the Hollywood squares sketch was really funny. She was qiute good in the Suge's CD sketch as well (Eve?). Because she cannot get the voices right, they all end up sounding the same, and are not convincing. Then, there are the impressions that are made great by the likeness the actor gets to the celebrity. All of Franks, Mo's and Nicole Parkers impressions are made funny just by their accuracy.

That's just my opinion anyway.

Cat, I PM'ed you yesterday. Did ya get it?

Eh who are you kidding, we're so taking over. LMAO J/K!


I seriously don't know if gays and lesbians are truly taking over, but it seems that way. And with the introduction of the Showtime Channels "The L-Word" about a group of lesbians, there is really nothing left for the gay people to do.

I think shes great. You guys keep saying that all her characters sound the same but:
1. They're not the same, but close
2. Most black female celebs/rappers sound (close to) the same anyways
The only impression I wasn't impressed with was Beyonce
I've said before and I'll say it again, Daniele is in minority just like debra was. Its not like if shes not good at impersonating someone she can just pass it over to someone else (well maybe Aries or Jordan, but then it will be less accurate most likely, but funny just cus its guys playing that part. And that wouldn't work unless it was like Star Jones or Missy Elliot which aries already does, because maybe debra wasn't good at that impression) Its different for the white females tho... If Nicole can't do a good Christina Aguilera, she can just pass it on to Gillian or Melissa or Stephnie, and see if they can do a better job. But daniele doesn't have it that easy

No. I saw it at the time... And i wasn't all that impressed. The Cribs sketch was an improvement... Britney singing low, Justin singing high. Britney "virgin" joke... but i don't think Nicole acted anything like them

I thought Will's Steven Seagal impression was great.

Aries was really bad with MJ. Phil was definately the best. I think Aries' impressions are good sometimes but they have been so overused that they annoying now.

i agree with jim.. the reason why nicoles britney sketches were good is that they were well-written. they were far from accurate though... in most of nicoles impressions, she was still... well... nicole sullivan.

In my opinion, Nicole's Britney impression was the best that MADtv has had. "Lick My Baby Back Behind" is my favorite music video parody in MADtv history.
