This sketch set the stage for what would follow through most of the episode, in that it wasn't truly bad and had its moments, but also never really came alive.The run where Gadhafi keeps going on and on about how the time zone difference works was somewhat funny, but even if it was part of the joke, the sketch go on too long.‘You don’t hear an audible voice but I feel like you receive messages from the child if you’re open to it,’ she said during an interview on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress, who is pregnant with her third child, says she and her bump communicate regularly and she’s even decided to move house because ‘the baby wanted me to live somewhere else’.
Which is not to say there haven't been notable ebbs and flows where strong episodes are followed by incredibly weak ones, but that's always been the case – and a year ago, during the lead up to the presidential election, definitely didn't put its best foot forward, offering an installment that had some amusing moments, but no true standouts.
Per usual, the cold opening was a political sketch – and while it starred Fred Armisen, shockingly, it was not an Obama sketch, but rather Armisen playing Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi apologizing for his long, rambling speech – by giving a long, rambling speech.
Also, a note to the writers – A tight little dress is not "A 13 year old boys dream" of how Fox would be dressed, as it still covers more skin than any 13 year old boy would bother imagining.
Certainly, it was hard not to wonder how Megan Fox would do as host and if she could deliver in the very specific world of sketch comedy.
The opening monologue had me worried, as it was short and really didn't rely on Fox, but rather several sight gags featuring obviously fake nudes of the much-Googled actress.
