1. So very cruel

I get "unavailable in your country" and can't see any of it!

6. That's the first half of it, anyway! Hoping they post the other half

But the first half was the funniest.

7. Those guys playing the heads of state were having a hard time keeping a straight face

It must be one of the most fun jobs in the world to be writing for SNL.

8. It was great to see Alec Baldwin again and Jimmy Fallon is terrific at impersonations

But I thought that James Corden was the best in that one, he was hysterical as Boris Johnson!

9. No wonder "Boris" sounded so authentically British

Corden was definitely perfect for the part!

10. Wasn't he?? I really hope that they bring him back again!

They tend to do that, as they did with Robert De Niro as Robert Mueller last year!

11. I wish we could get that here.

Watching SNL was a highlight for me when I lived in the States. This was back in the days when it was still John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Gilda Radner, etc.

12. Oh, we watched it from pretty much the beginning as well

My parents still remember when a friend of mine was out and about with a couple friends when it was time for it to be on and stopped by our house just to watch it with us!

It makes no sense that the videos would be blocked, but I've heard from our Canadian neighbors here that some of them are inaccessible there too.

3. Get you a VPN

It will connect to a server in the U.S. and it thinks you are in the U.S so you can see it. They are pretty cheap.

5. I have that already

But it is a work connection, and it blocks just about everything not company-related due to security concerns. The thing is programmed by our HQ in the States, and I have no idea how that works.

13. Although I think Cecily Strong looks more like Pelosi, Kate nailed every other aspect!

14. I liked this show. Was more for adults

some are too juvenile for this old boomer's taste..

Jennifer Lopez looked great and adding the Rockettes was a nice touch.

Thanks, Rhiannon12866 for posting these.
