I'm not overly impressed with Lisa yet, but of course, that was her first sketch ever. Compared to others, she had a much lengthier and larger first role, and that shows that MADtv has got to have some faith behind her.

For reference, not including the 1101 opener or the Jessica Simpson parody, Caeti's first sketch was the House sketch, Arden's was Jazzed for Crafts, and Nicole RJ's was the View.

I was only really disappointed with Arden's first appearance, but she grew on me. Hopefully Lisa will do the same. She didn't seem to have the click with the cast that you got with when watching the S11 newbies, but again, it was her first sketch.

Outside of Lisa, I didn't like much in the episode. Luann was funny, but I think Mrs. Bell has more potential to be a recurring character. Nicole RJ gave me the most laughs of the night in that sketch alone. Aside from that, the Claymation was the only other thing I liked.

Another nitpicky thing I have to point out, is that when sketches go to the stage for their second coming, I think they get funny. For example, compare the way Attitudes and the Grey's Anatomy parody looked the first time, like the way they were shot. They look much less set-y, and I think being "on location" makes them much funnier. Attitudes III was funnier than II, I'll give it that.

We're in the mid-season slump right now, IMO, but I always come back and watch every Saturday. As much as I complain, I love this show.

I really enjoyed this episode. The only thing bad about it was the Flava Flav black history month thing. It was repetitive and NOT funny...but the rest was spectacular.

Because this is middle of Season 12, the Lisa Donovan Part looked like when they put Susan Sarandon's S5 "Intro", the film qualities are different. But no harm done.

Here are some quick screen caps of Lisa's opening credits. Just a simple Print Screen with RealPlayer, so nothing high-res or anything like that.

Stylish Audience Members: I think this was ok and it wasn't bad imo, but there were better opening
Music Video: Aren't Asians Great?: I was really looking foward to this because no one has really done an impression of Gwen, but I was disappointed it wasn't BAD but it wasn't OK, I liked Nicole's impression, but there wasn't enough of Jordan's Akon I don't even think he said anything...
Grey's Anatomy/House/ER: This was a funny skitch *sp?* espeacialy that they made it a crossover, it was so funny with Nicole RJ when she came out and you saw the height LOL
Flavor Flav and African Amerian History #1-3: I thought these were funny especially the MLK one.
Attitudes and Feelings Pt. III: This one was pretty funny and strange LOL, these skitches always feel like a real soap opera, it makes me wonder whats going to happening next all the time
Ellen DeGeneres Show: Ugly Betty: This was HILARIOUS especially Nicole's line "Big Black Bear" I couldn't stop laughing! Lisa Nova did really good I am looking foward to see what she's got. Crista was great in this too.
Claymation: Cupid Goes Wrong: This was funny, short and sweet.
Ike Meets Bobby's Parents: Bobby's parents are funny if it weren't for them this would have been one of those boring Ike and Bobby sketches.
Luanne Lockheart: Laundramat #1-2: Crista was funny but the real star here is Nicole RJ. Just seeing that face she made when she found that boot was enough to make this one the best sketches. I really like Nicole RJ I think she is a pretty strong castmember.

Full episode: I thought this was an above average episode, but some of the sketches disappointed me like the Gwen Stafani video. Some were great like the Ellen DeGeneres one . And some could have been better.

Open: Stylish Audience Members: This was an O.K. opening. I love it when the castmembers improv and I thought Michael did a good job.

Music Video: Aren't Asians Great?: The only thing that proved to be marginally amusing in this sketch was Bobby and even that was old.

Grey's Anatomy/House: Finally, something funny! Great performances from Nicole and Michael; best sketch of the night, easily.

Flavor Flav and African Amerian History #1-3: These were sort of pointless, I thought. They didn't make me laugh one bit.

Attitudes and Feelings Pt. III: This was just really, really random. I think that the 1st Attitudes and Feelings sketch was the best; they could have done more with the subtitles in this one.

Ellen DeGeneres Show: Ugly Betty: Lisa did a really good job! I'm excited that she's a featured part of the cast now. Nicole did a nice job portraying Ellen, as usual.

Claymation: Cupid Goes Wrong: Great sketch! Simple and funny.

Ike Meets Bobby's Parents: Ike and Bobby are, in my opinion, pretty funny in sketches like these. This Ike-Bobby sketch, however, wasn't as good as the others. Neither Ike nor Bobby were amazingly funny (I must admit that I laughed a couple of times at Bobby's parents, though). The ending was good.

Luanne Lockheart: Laundramat #1-2: Regardless of how acurately Crista's portrayal of Luanne is, I didn't find her funny at all. But, since Nicole RJ did a good job, I'll give it a star.

Overall: Not good. It'd be nice if they could have as good an episode as was 1213 every week, but I know it's not going to happen. I'll remember The Grey's Anatomy/House and Ellen sketches. Other than that... blah.

5.5/10

Eh, I didn't like this episode that much either
The better sketches was the show opening, Ellen DeGeneres Show, the claymation, Ike meets Bobby's Parents and the Luanne Lockheart sketches. The rest were really bad

Did someone noticed that after Lisa's debut, new people had arrived to speak at the forums?

Welcome all users to the site!

So yeah, no Frank. I will say though, Bobby did a really good job of changing his voice in the Cupid sketch, I couldn't tell it was him except for the very beginning.
That was Keegan, not Bobby, I thought.

Anyway, I'll do a review tomorrow; I'm only halfway through the ep right now (west coast viewer).

Open: Stylish Audience Members: I personally enjoy it when cast members improvise with the audience. I feel like Michael made a few good jokes. Although it was weak for an opening, it was solid material.

Music Video: The first half of this was dreadful. It wasn't until the "behind the wheel" line that I thought a lyric was decent. The editors should be adding laughs to the music videos... I don't know why they quit the tradition, but its ruining them.1/2

Grey's Anatomy/House: This sketch wasn't amazing, but it wasn't bad either. Some of the humor was repetitive (like the injuries from the door) which were only funny the first time.

Flavor Flav and African American History #1-3: The first one started off weak, the second one was funny throughout, and the third one was decent. These were okay, but I didn't care for them that much.1/2

Attitudes and Feelings Pt. III: I loved the random old man in the pool. This went right along with the previous ones... and the ending was once again shocking. I liked it.1/2

Ellen DeGeneres Show: Ugly Betty: Lisa did a great job. She made me smile. Nicole did a good job too (as always). This sketch was one of the better ones... haha "big black bear"1/2

Claymation: Cupid Goes Wrong: This was cute. It could have probably been funnier, but it was short and sweet. I liked it.

Ike Meets Bobby's Parents: This was funny... not because of Ike... not because of Bobby... but because of the parents. The whole Star Wars presentation cracked me up! I'm scared to bathe. 1/2

Luanne Lockheart: Laundramat #1-2: This was my favorite sketch... mainly because of Nicole RJ. Her monologue at the end about the boot, in my opinion, saved the episode... especially when she randomly said she needed to kill someone. XD The rest of this sketch was entertaining; if not funny.

Overall: It was better than average (for this season), but not amazing. Some sketches looked like they had a lot of thought put into them, and others were just "blah."

My favorite sketch was without a doubt the laundromat sketch. Nicole was definitely funnier though but still, that sketch had me on the floor.

Welcome to the forum lerler.

Overall, I can't say I enjoyed this episode too much, although it had its moments. Lisa Donovan had a great debut in an excellent sketch (technically, it wasn't her debut sketch, but you know what I mean), and incidentally was the best sketch of the night. Awesome work Lisa! Can't say the same about the rest of the episode...where the fvck was Frank in this? For this, I expect nothing less than an entire episode where Frank is in every sketch to make up for it... Mediocre, no more, no less.

5.5/10

Open - Stylish Audience Members: This was okay. I don't really like these sketches where they involve audience members, but I found Michael funny.

Music Video - Gwen Stefani Parody - This was okay. At first I couldn't understand what they were saying, but midway through got better. Nicole did a very good job imitating Gwen, but I didn't find it funny.

House & Grey's Anatomy: From the preview I didn't think this would look good, but it was one of the best sketches of the night. Bobby Lee was actually funny in it (I never say that.) I found Michael's character the funniest. Overall good.

African American History 1-3: I hate flavor flave so I couldn't enjoy this. I'm sure it would've been funnier with someone else. Keegan was good in it though, probably the only thing that saved the sketches.

Attitudes and Feelings Pt. III: Missed this.

The Ellen Degeneres Show: I LOVE these sketches. Nicole does an amazing job playing Ellen. I liked Lisa at first, but the whole ugly thing kind of got boring. She was very good though.

Claymation: Missed this.

Ike meets Bobby's Parents: I hate bobby, I hate Ike. The only thing I found funny about this sketch were his parents.

Luanna Lockheart: Nicole RJ was hilarious. Probably funnier than Crista, but I still really enjoyed this. Crista's face expressions always make me laugh.

Overall: 7/10

This was an okay episode. Either the sketch was hilarious, or it flat out sucked. They did a fantastic job with Grey's Anatomy and Ellen. TV show parodies are my favourite!

After re-watching the sketch, I think it's this...

Girl on Bench - Arden
Guy on Bench - Ike
Cupid's Trainer - Jordan
Cupid - Bobby

So yeah, no Frank. I will say though, Bobby did a really good job of changing his voice in the Cupid sketch, I couldn't tell it was him except for the very beginning.

There were other voices, though. I'll have to re-watch the sketch.

He definitley was in the claymation sketch, but other then that, he was completely absent from this episode. Arden and Ike also had very limited roles, heck, I think Lisa appeared in more sketches then Arden did, and she only was in 2 sketches..

For no reason, here's a list of the # of sketches each cast member was in...

Bobby - 4 (Gwen, GA, Attidues and Feelings, Bobby's Parents)
Nicole P - 3 (Gwen Stefani, GA, Ellen)
Crista - 3 (GA, Ellen, Luanne)
Nicole RJ - 2 (GA, Luanne)
Michael - 2 (Open, GA)
Jordan - 2 (Gwen, Flavor Flav)
Lisa - 2 (GA(?), Ellen)
Keegan - 2 (GA, Flavor Flav)
Ike - 1 (Bobby's Parents)
Arden - 1 (GA)
Frank - 0

So, Bobby had the most, followed by Nicole P and Crista, and then the majority of the rest had 2, with the except of Ike, Arden, and Frank, who had less.

I didn't include voices in the claymation sketch because I'm not totally sure of who was in it yet. But I know for a fact Ike was and i'm pretty sure Frank was, too.
