The show addressed the recent hacking of Leslie Jones with a Mr. Robot spoof, playing up her lack of tech savvy when she hires the show's Elliot (Pete Davidson) to figure out how her pictures got leaked from her Windows 95 laptop with the password "password." She also adjusts the show's off-kitler framing. I figured Jones would go and talk about this on Weekend Update, so extra points for finding a clever way into the material.
Overused: Mikey Day and Alex Moffat are still hard to tell apart, which made it even weirder that they both featured heavily in a lot of tonight's sketches. Are they sticking together for safety? Also, I love Kenan, but he doesn't need to be in the night's first three major sketches (plus a slot on Update).
Underused: The perpetually underused Sasheer Zamata continues that streak, though otherwise the sketches had deep enough benches to give most of the cast at least something funny to do.
Overall: Lots of funny moments and no major flops, but also not any sketches that I'll be watching again anytime soon.
Episode Grade: B
