Saturday Night time Dwell dares to reply a query that, truthfully, I haven’t contemplated over all of the years of watching Bond flicks: For on a regular basis he spends in casinos, sizing up this arms seller or that megalomaniac, how does 007 truly make out on the tables?

With Daniel Craig as final night time’s host, this was the proper likelihood to search out out. When Bond rolls his second seven, he transforms from debonair covert operative to a flyover rube on his first scorching streak.

Particular due to a schnockered Heidi Gardner elbowing Bond Lady Chloe Fineman out of the way in which, yard-drinking hype man Kenan Thompson, and Kate McKinnon because the irrepressible slot machine grandma.

The bit ends fairly abruptly, however hey, Bond has to win ultimately, proper? It wouldn’t shock me to be taught that Q cooked up some particular loaded cube that Bond palmed into the sport.

Additionally final night time, Rachel Dratch reprised her transcendent Debbie Downer function for the primary time in 14 years. Sure, you learn that accurately. The place the hell has she been? We’ve by no means wanted Deb greater than in occasions like these.

Dratch parachutes proper again into character, however sadly, doesn’t win an applause break just like the one she obtained for revealing herself. The merciless actuality of her stardom is that Debbie should ceaselessly compete with the 2004 debut that made Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler, and Lindsay Lohan break character.

Saturday Night time Dwell has the following two weeks off, then returns March 28 with John Krasinski (The Workplace, Amazon’s Jack Ryan) internet hosting.
