I was watching a Genie Mose segment on the Kings of Leon bailing on a concert on account of being pooped on by birds, and in the segment they showed scenes from the Proposal at the Aviary sketch at 2 separate times during the sketch in the middle and the end! I've seen them use MADtv stuff before for her segments, one of her segment directors must be a fan, and that's alright with me.

Default My Review

Bobby Gets Judged: Good opening. Michael's Simon is great, and so's Nicole's Paula. The highlight was when Simon called Bobby Blobby.

Montel Video: Another appearance by Montel Chilliams is always good to see. The highlight was him counting how many people he will bang.

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #57: Ah, this was really filler.

L.A.P.D. Piņatas: Funny. Not side splittingly funny, but funny. The highlight was Pete beating the Piņata saying that he came at him and that he had to do it.

Barack Obama Crashes Hillary Clinton's Woman of the Year Celebration: The first appearance of what would be many Barack Obama impressions by Keegan. This was one of the best. The highlight was Barack's anger in being compared to Wayne Brady. Beware the wrath of Barack!

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #112: Filler.

Proposal at the Aviary: Disgusting and I loved it! Only MADtv would come up with something so gross and disgusting, and actually have the balls to put it through. The highlight was at the end when Michael and Nicole are covered in bird poop. This was mostly due to the fact that Nicole's face was completely covered and looked like she had a weird shaped bowl on her head.

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #204: This one was one of the better ones. The highlight was Ike's non-shalaunt way of noticing that there is a dead body in the corner of the warehouse.

Blind Kung Fu Master in Space #1: Nothing like the world's greatest warrior to bring some comedy. The highlight was him getting kicked in the crotch.

Wing Woman: Arden just proves how annoying she is. The highlight was Arden crying drunk and going off on Bobby.

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #189: This one doesn't make sense because, how could this ever be a Law and Order opening? Sometimes it's ok if a sketch doesn't make total sense, but in this case it is not ok. The highlight was Jordan's reaction to finding the lamp.

Celebrity Pets: Dick Cheney's Dog, Rufus *Claymation*: Like we didn't know this already.

3 Minute Valentine: Love Wendy! She is great, and to see another one of these is a gift. I do wish however that there were more problems. I mean, the only physical problems were the ice cream, and the nuts. The highlight was when Wendy got so mad that she tried to bite through the nuts with her teeth and lost one.

Unused Law and Order Opening: Treasure Hunt: It seems so odd that MADtv would spend all this money to get such a high profile actress like Kate Walsh of Grey's Anatomy, and use her at the end of the show, for such a low grade sketch. Why not use her in a Grey's Anatomy parody. That would have been funny. Maybe they could have combined Grey's with House? The highlight was the finding of the dead cat. That cat was scary.

Blind Kung Fu Master in Space #2: Again, Filler. Probably wasn't even needed.

Out of 75 stars this episode got 511/2. That's a C+ rating. Not too bad of an episode.

Oh my God, I'm actually agreeing with you again, Kurt. Now, now, I realize this is a scary phenomenon for both of us; however, we'll just have to make the best of it. But yeah, it's difficult not to go with one of the best sketches of the season. In addition to Nicole P. and Keegan, I'd also like to give props to NRJ, who gives perhaps her most hilarious supporting performance ever (although "ever" is a relative concept when you're unjustly limited to only two seasons ).

Poll is up. This is a hard one, because the American Idol Opening, the proposal sketch, 3 minute meals and wing woman sketches were all great, but the Hilary/Obama sketch TRUMPS. ALL. Those two impressions own and the chemistry between Nicole and Keegan? Super fantastic. Can't wait to see more of them once the strike is officially over!

I just re-watched this episode (it reran last Saturday and I recorded it and just got around to watching it) so I guess I can do a review, I haven't done a long one in a while.

Open: American Idol - I loved this one. It was so clever and all 3 impressions were great! Bobby and Frank were quite good, too. A great open. 5/5

Montel Chilliams - This was quite a funny sketch. Good job in writing it, Jordan. The Montel parodies are always hilarious. 4/5

Unused Law and Order Openings - Although they weren't hilarious, they were short little bits that helped to glue the show together. I liked them, my favorite was the one with the lamp. And the Kate Walsh one. 3.5/5

LAPD Pinatas - A very funny commercial. Ike was excellent here and usually I don't like him...now if only he could do more things like this! Anyway I liked the part with the tazer the best. 5/5


Democratic Woman of the Year - Nicole and Keegan both had great impressions & Arden, Nicole RJ, Crista, and Jordan were good as well. This one was good, it's great how MAD can do political humor without turning it to a Bush-bashing fest (not that I like Bush), like some other shows (SNL ) do. 4.5/5

Aviary Proposal - Disgusting! But still pretty funny. 3.5/5

Blind Kung Fu Master: Star Wars - Usually this character is grating, but this one was pretty funny, actually. 3.5/5

Wing Woman - Arden at her funniest! This was great. 5/5

Celebrity Pets - These are good sometimes but this one was a snoozer. 2/5

3 Minute Meal: Banana Splits - Crazy, but so funny! I was on the floor! Possibly 1213's highlight. 5/5

Treasure Hunt - Was slow until the end, but the end was so hilarious that it didn't even matter. 4/5


Overall, if you average all of the sketches together it comes out to about a 4/5, which in my book is an A or an A-. Very good episode. The only thing that wasn't good was Celebrity Pets.

My favorite sketch from this one was Proposal at the Aviary for some reason. It just made me laugh the most. The new 3 Minute Meal was still great though.

Default Here's something you probably didn't know ...

I received a PM from Frank Caeti over the weekend, and he said that he played the robot in the Blind Kung Fu Master sketch. Thank you very much for that tidbit, Frank.

Default #1213 Review *PATENT PENDING*

Open: Bobby Gets Judged - I've been liking these S12 openings, I must say. The Paula Abdul/Simon Cowell impressions were great, as usual, although I didn't really like Nicole's Randy Jackson impression (I think she could really make it work with a little time, though), but that's just nitpicking. Bobby was good, but the best part was Frank coming out, pretending to be an AI 'contestant' only to be instantly shunned, causing him to run away crying.

Montel Chilliams: Backstage - I liked this too, although it wasn't super-funny. Jordan did a good job writing this (as per usual), but as I said, I didn't find this hilarious. Still good, though.

Unused "Law & Order" Openings - I didn't see the need for four of them (they could have cut out the first two, which just didn't work nearly as well as the last two), especially with another sketch utilizing this theme somewhat (more on that later.) .5

L.A.P.D. Pinatas - I'm convinced, Ike really knows how to make 'lame' things work, and this sketch is proof. Solid tongue-in-cheek, no more, no less.

"Democratic Woman of the Year" Speech - Would have been better if it weren't so long, plus I found it to be a tad overrated as well. Nonetheless, I really liked Keegan doing a Bill Cosby impression, and how this did well in telling us that Barack Obama is supposedly "Mr. Personality" whereas nobody really cares too much about Hillary Clinton (I sure as hell don't.) OBAMA FOR '08! .5

Proposal at the Aviary - All I can say is that bird sh!t better have been oatmeal. Decent one-off, with typically great performances from Michael McDonald/Nicole Parker. .5

Blind Kung Fu Master in Space - Normally I don't like this character, but for whatever reason, this was HILARIOUS! There, I said it. This was H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S. Or as tarza would say, hi-LAR-ious. It didn't feel nearly as forced as past BKFM sketches, and had more of a cartoony, over-the-top, Will Sasso-like quality to it that was killer IMO. Of course, some parts WERE rather forced (like BKFM breaking out of a window, never seen that before ), but other than that, this was (almost) gold. .5

Wing Woman - Remind me never to bring someone like Arden to a bar with me. This was all Arden, without a doubt. Arden is at her irritating best here (yes, that's a good thing here), with the best part being Arden getting into fights with other ladies.

Celebrity Pets: Dick Cheney's Dog - Another great Celebrity Pets claymation bit, although nothing super. .5

3-Minute Meal: Valentine Edition - Since the first 3 Minute Meals was by far the best thing Crista's ever done, why NOT give it a second go? While not flat-out awesome like the first (it didn't really break much new ground from that now-seminal sketch), it was still good stuff, and one of the better S12 sketches so far. Next time around, though, Wendy (Crista) is going to have to do nothing short of impaling her head on a steak knife in order to reproduce the magic of the first.

Treasure Hunt - This sketch was 'okay but nothing too special' right up until it incorporated the "Law and Order Unused Openings" theme used earlier in the episode. That was absolute genius IMO. That ALONE deserves...

Quite a good episode overall. High points include 3 Minute Meals, the Treasure Hunt, and BKFM (that's right Rurry ), and there wasn't a SINGLE crappy sketch in this (except for maybe the first two Law and Order Unused Openings.)

8/10

Default Review Ep 1213

Open: Bobby Gets Judged: Bobby comes out on stage to start the show, but then gets hassled by the American Idol judges.
-This was pretty good, actually. I like how they poked fun of Bobby getting fat and always playing girl characters. The impressions were pretty spot on, too, and I loved Frank coming out at the end.
Rating: 4/5

Montel Chilliams: Backstage Video: A rap video about Montel Williams, how he does his show for so long, and his trying to get marijuana legalized.
-This wasn't bad at all. Nice rapping, too. And Jordan wrote this on top of that. He's been on fire these past couple weeks.
Rating: 4/5

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #57: A man (Keegan) and a woman (Nicole P) are coming home from a date. When she doesn't invite him in, he's a bit taken aback, but she says it's only because she's menstruating. He says he doesn't care, so she invites him in, and just then... they find a dead body on the lawn.
-This was random. Not particularly good or bad, just random. One thing of note is the new filming technique they used on it. This season's production values have been through the roof.
Rating: ?/5

Commercial: L.A.P.D. Pinatas : The LAPD is making new pinatas, but they all have one common theme: they're all shaped like highly profiled suspects!
-This was really good. Ran on a little long, but it was great how they kept beating the pinatas. The best part was when Pete (Ike) shot the Mexican one, then planted a gun on it.
Quotes:
Pete: You saw that, he tried to shoot me.
Rating: 4.5/5

"Democratic Woman of the Year" Speech: Hilary Clinton (Nicole P) is set to win the Democratic Woman of the Year award, but is quickly upstaged when Barrack Obama shows up at the ceremony.
-This was really good. Nice use of political satire, but not in an SNL-like manner.
Quotes:
(Nicole RJ): Sing us a song!
Barrack: Even if I could, I don't even have one prepared.
(Jordan): Improvise one. Like Wayne Brady does.
Barrack: Don't you EVER compare me to Wayne Brady!
Rating: 4.5/5

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #112: A couple (Micheal and Crista) are doing dishes when... they find a dead body on the counter.
-See comments for #56

Proposal at the Aviary (Michael- Jason, Nicole P- Carol Ann): Jason (Micheal) takes his girlfriend Carol Ann (Nicole P) to the aviary where they first met to propose to her, but it's slightly ruined when birds keep pooping all over the place.
-Not bad, but the pooping was a bit excessive. Nice one-off, though.
Rating: 3.5/5

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #204: Two mob bosses (Ike and Frank) get into an argument. When (Ike) starts to strangle (Frank)... they find a dead body on the ground.
-This was better than the first two, mainly because (Ike's) reaction when he found the dead body. "Oh, look, there's a dead body."
Rating: 4/5

Blind Kung Fu Master in Space: President Torgo (Jordan) sends the Blind Kung Fu Master to fight against Princess Mora (Crista).
-This was definitely the weakest sketch of the night, but it wasn't all that bad. There were some good points, like the robot kicking him in the balls, or him actually winning a fight for a change. But much like the rest of the ep, it was so... random.
Rating: 3/5

Wing Woman: Bobby asks Arden to be his "wing woman" so he can get girls at a club. But she ruins everything when she fights with the other girls, tells embarrassing stories about Bobby, and makes him out to be an ass.
-This was awesome. Hilarious in every way. Arden getting drunk and belligerent was golden.
Quotes:
Arden: We have a son; his name's Xavier. [Bobby] doesn't take care of him or anything, but it's okay, he just wants to be on the market, I guess.
Girl (to Bobby): You're a horrible person!
Rating: 5/5

Unused "Law & Order" Opening #189: Two garbage men (Jordan and Bobby) are picking up trash and talking about microwavable meals when... they find a perfectly good lamp lying around.
-This one was just so great. I loved how they made you think it was another dead body coming, but it was just a lamp. Fantastic.
Rating: 5/5

Celebrity Pets: Dick Cheney's Dog, Rufus *claymation*: Dick Cheney's dog Rufus (voice of Keegan) warns the viewers about his owner's plot to take over the world.
-Great Celeb Pets sketch, as usual. Wish they would have gotten someone other than Keegan to voice him but whatever. Still awesome.
Quotes:
Rufus: You know that show Jericho? It's a simulation! [Cheney] had script approval!
Rating: 5/5

3-Minute Meal: Valentine Edition (Crista- Wendy Walker): Wendy Walker (Crista) does a special Valentine's Day 3-Minute Meal episode, but everything goes wrong when she burns herself after trying to melt the ice cream, the bananas are overripe, she chips her tooth trying to crack the walnuts, then cuts off her finger. And on top of that, the damn ticker won't stop!
-It started out pretty decent, but got much better as it went along. Kind of reminds me of Paul Timbermann's workshop a bit.
Rating: 4/5

Treasure Hunt: Dale and Dinah (Micheal and guest Kate Walsh) host a scavenger hunt party for their kids and their friend's kids, but everything goes awry when they find less-than-desirable items, like a dead cat, an old refrigerator, a vibrator, a Nazi flag, and... a dead body in the backyard.
-This was pretty funny, but the thing that put it over the edge was the tying it into the Law and Order sketches. Kind of a waste to have Kate Walsh in this sketch, but I guess it's better than putting her in a Grey's Anatomy parody. She was looking especially pretty, too.
Rating: 5/5

Final Thoughts: Holy hell, this episode was fantastic! All the sketches were great, with the exception of Blind Kung Fu master, which wasn't even all that bad. By FAR better than the last three. And Jordan has been on fire these past couple weeks, with "Battle Scene" and "Montel Chilliams." All in all, I'd be crazy if I gave this episode anything less than a...

Waahhhh? I thought Keegan was actually funny? The Barack and Hilary sketches was hilarious, and now Keegan has a decent impression. He impressed me a lot this episode.

Other favorite sketches go to Arden the Wing Woman, Treasure Hunt, and the 3-Minute Meals sketch. Those bananas made me gag, they were so disgusting. I honestly didn't know they could look like that.

And all around good/average episode. It gets a B.

This is what FOX says in their MADtv schedule thing for next week...

Quote:


MADtv’s refreshing humor and dead-on parodies have made this award-winning sketch comedy show a FOX Saturday-night staple. Join in the hilarity with an all-new episode of MADtv airing Saturday, Feb. 17 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) on FOX. (MD-1214) (TV-14; D, L, S, V ) CC
Sounds to me like it's new but they dont have any info about it so thats why they didnt show a preview. And I like how they called the show a Saturday-night staple.

Anyway, for the Who/What, I just re-watched the episode and it's definitley Keegan in the Celebrity Pets sketch. As for the dead bodies, I think besides Crista in the 1st one, the rest are extras.

Okay, I just updated the guide.

Quote:
Cast: Ike Barinholtz, Frank Caeti, Crista Flanagan, Nicole Randall Johnson, Keegan-Michael Key, Bobby Lee, Michael McDonald, Arden Myrin, Nicole Parker, Jordan Peele

Guest Starring: Kate Walsh
  • Open: Bobby Gets Judged (Bobby- Himself, Michael- Simon Cowell, Nicole P- Paula Abdul, Nicole RJ- Randy Jackson, Frank- Himself)
  • Montel Chilliams: Backstage Video (Jordan- Montel Williams, Crista- Jeanette, Arden)
  • Unused "Law & Order" Opening #57 (Nicole P, Keegan, Crista)
  • Commercial: L.A.P.D. Pinatas (Ike- Pete)
  • "Democratic Woman of the Year" Speech (Keegan- Barack Obama, Nicole P- Hillary Rodham Clinton, Crista- Lisa, Arden, Nicole RJ, Jordan)
  • Unused "Law & Order" Opening #112 (Crista- Rebecca, Michael, Jordan)
  • Proposal at the Aviary (Michael- Jason, Nicole P- Carol Ann)
  • Unused "Law & Order" Opening #204 (Ike, Frank, Arden)
  • Blind Kung Fu Master in Space (Bobby- Blind Kung Fu Master, Crista- Princess Mora, Jordan- President Torgo)
  • Wing Woman (Arden- Herself, Bobby- Himself)
  • Unused "Law & Order" Opening #189 (Jordan, Bobby)
  • Celebrity Pets: Dick Cheney's Dog, Rufus *claymation*
  • 3-Minute Meal: Valentine Edition (Crista- Wendy Walker)
  • Treasure Hunt (Kate Walsh- Dinah, Michael- Dale, Keegan, Frank, Arden)
  • Close: Blind Kung Fu Master in Space (Bobby- Blind Kung Fu Master)
Aside from the dead bodies in the "Law & Order" openings and the treasure hunt, that girl in sunglasses from the Montel video (Arden?), and whoever provided Rufus' voice (Keegan?), I'm very certain about everything else. Still, if anyone notices any errors, please let me know.

Anyway ... yeah, I enjoyed this episode overall. The Blind Kung Fu Master is bloody annoying, but everything else ranged from good to laugh-out-loud hilarious, especially the new 3-Minute Meal . I think I need stitches for my stomach now. The opening, Montel, Obama/Hillary, Bobby/Arden, and treasure hunt sketches were also top highlights for me.

I live out on the West Coast, and I didn't see a preview, either .

I fell asleep and when I woke up the end of the LAPD Sketch was airing. But at least I got to see that 3 Minute Meals sketch and the one that followed. Excellent!

I'm not going to give this ep the Full Monty b/c (1) I'm too tired; (2) it would require some devotion; and (3) if I did the Full Monty on this site, then I'd probably be arrested. Even so, I do like 1213 overall; in fact, it's one of the best I've seen in a while. My rating would probably be 4/5 if I bothered to analyze it much; but when you're recovering from severe stomach flu and are still feeling the effects of several gross-out sketches (two in particular), analysis ain't in the cards.

BTW, while I concur that the "3-Minute Meal" bits are among Crista's finest "MADtv" work, I don't mind saying that any female cast member by the name of Nicole Sullivan, Mo Collins, or Mary Scheer could have absolutely mopped the floor with her in this role. Still, I do love this priceless line: "WILL SOMEONE STOP THE CLOCK WHILE I LOOK FOR MY FINGER?!?" Strangely, I find the bananas more disgusting than the chopped finger.

Open: Bobby and American Idol: Good open, maybe my 2nd favorite of the season behind "Secret Santa" from 1209. I thought all of the impressions were spot-on - ESPECIALLY Nicole's Paula, that really got me laughing. Good.
The Montel Chilliams Show Secrets: This was funny. Nice crack at both Montell at rap. Good sketch.
Law and Order Open #1-4: Not amazing or horrible, they could've done better. The first one was the best...did they really need 4 of these?
LAPD Pinatas: I LOVED this, it was clever and just totally randomly placed. Great one-off (I guess it would be considered this since it wasn't really parodying anything...) .5
All Hail Oboma: HILARIOUS, especially when he got up and sang. Another great sketch.
Aviary Proposal: A VERY gross sketch, but it was HILARIOUS. One of the best one-offs of the season so far. I liked how we got a lot of original sketches in this episode. Good one.
Blind Kung Fu Master: Meh, I guess this is better then Bae Sung, but I still didn't like this. Like all the other BKFM sketches, it was hilarious in the beginning, but dragged on and on. .5
Arden the Wing Woman: AWESOME performance from Arden, and a pretty good sketch, but not great. Good-ish. .5
Celebrity Pets: Dick Cheney's Dog: This was ok, I guess, it could've been better. Not as good as the last Celebrity Pets from 1208, but not all that bad, and still an improvement from claymation/animation in the early part of the season. The crack at Jericho made me give it a .5
Three Minute Meals: Valentine's Day: YAY! They're recurring this! Great sketch, glad to see her back. Probably Crista's best character to date. 5-star sketch...great job, Crista!
Scavenger Hunt: Ok, this was BRILLIANT how they incorperated this into the Law and Order sketches. It was just ok before that, but this raises it to a .

Ok, so is next week a repeat or not?! TVGuide has been saying it's new for weeks and ALL of the articles say Lisa Donovan is joining next week. FOX even released a freakin' press release about it, so it BETTER be new, or there's going to be a LOT of angry LisaNova (as well as MADtv) fans...ok, back to the episode....

Overall: Awesome episode! Almost every sketch was funny. The worst was BKFM and even that was ok. I really enjoyed this episode, I thought it was excellent.

9.5/10
