If we’ve learned anything from this show, the best way to make a cool Thor comic is to take a non-human character and put Thor clothes on it. It worked with Frog Thor and it totally works with Beta Ray Bill.
We read his 1st appearance at the beginning of Walt Simonson’s classic run from the mid 80s in issues 337-343.
Thor also fights a dragon and changes his secret identity situation from unnecessary to still unnecessary.
Next Time: Kingdom Come
It’s Hemsworth’s time! Thor stops by 30 Rock for the second time this year to host Saturday Night Live!
Vince, Scott, and Doug Vader remember Toonces the Driving Cat, marvel at the Predator font in “No Time to Bleed”, and wish they could be as cool as Chris Hemsworth (even though he’s weird now).
Before our SNL Best Skit of the Season Spectacular next week, here’s one last chance to check out all the best skits from the Saturday Night Live, spring Season 40!
Even if you haven’t been keeping up with SNL, here’s the best 11 skits this spring had to offer.
Sound off in the comments about what your favorite was. Scott, Kia, and I may read your comment on the air and you will be immortalized forever in the completely permanent format of a weekly podcast series.
All the skits are embedded after the break!
Thor hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live, so that gives Scott, Vince, and featured player Kia ample time to talk about Thor’s muscles, Avengers minutiae, and ugly Hemsworth brothers.
This week’s best skit was the Hillary Clinton Cold Open. That’s not to say that the episode was all downhill from the beginning. It was just a nice, strong introduction to a new Kate McKinnon impression. Her Hillary should be fun going into the 2016 election season.
Oh, and Kia’s screener somehow missed the Beck Bennett/Kyle Mooney “Reality House”. So I’ve included it below for him.
