Critic Reviews for David Harbour; Camila Cabello

This week's "Saturday Night Live" was off to a good start from the moment it actually featured the real Billy Porter, whose enthusiasm and general awesomeness extended to the sketch itself.

I appreciated some of the throwback elements of this episode, and Harbour conducted himself quite well.

SNL gave the actor a chance to show off a bit more of his comic range, giving him the chance to take on Joaquin Phoenix and stuffing him into a dress in order to be dry-humped by Kate McKinnon - and he took to it all pretty well.

There's a big, goofy ham lurking inside that imposing frame, and his first SNL hosting gig turned out fine. Harbour is the sort of unlikely host whose actorly persona can provide some fresh inspiration for SNL writers.

Ending its initial three-week run, Saturday Night Live closed with another strong episode that solidified this as one of the most promising seasons in several years.

Harbour's charisma makes him an ace at live comedy and thankfully, the writing was there to meet him.

his week's perfectly fine SNL didn't quite have the spark of last week's episode, but was still considerably funnier than the season premiere. Stranger Things star David Harbour proved a worthwhile host, pouring himself into every sketch.

"Mildly amusing" is also a perfect descriptor for the episode as a whole.

Based on David Harbour's general enthusiasm in any given situation, we knew that he would have plenty of fun hosting Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, it seems like the writers might have been tired in their third episode in a row.

This is a trailer for Grouch, the origins story of Oscar the Grouch told in the style of Joker. It's fantastic! It's both funny and a brilliant commentary on Joker. It's easily the best thing this season, so far.
