John Goodman is not Kerry Washington, Justin Timberlake, Paul Rudd, Miley Cyrus or Beiber. You won't feel bad about not rolling on the floor laughing and you also won't be left scratching your head at most of the skits going 'WTF?".
Goodman is a solid, dependable performer and makes the most of any material. Some of his best SNL moments over the years have occurred when he dawns a dress for a skit. I was happy to see him return to his SNL Linda Tripp roots. Again, not a episode to post all over the social media world, but a good run for Goodman. The community theater skit and the cold open were also pretty good. Drunker Uncle on Weekend Update also worked somehow. Let's hope they bring him back sooner than 12 years from now.
