Rainn Wilson/Arcade Fire is one of the better SNL episodes
31 March 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The cold opening of this February 24, 2007 edition takes us to CNN where Wolf Blitzer (Darrell Hammond) is reporting on the Iraq War. The crawl at the bottom, however, keeps wanting to report on the Anna Nicole Smith case. "Anna! Anna! Anna!" the crawl keeps saying as it moves. Ms. Smith's face then keeps appearing in place of Blitzer's who is now moving with the crawl as he says, "Stop!" Rainn Wilson then appears with two fake Smith reports, the second time as he gets held up by a cameraman! After cutting in to Larry King (Fred Armisen), Hammond says, "Live From New York, It's Saturday Night!" Wilson comes on stage and shows around the studio which suddenly turns into a parody of his series "The Office" with Kirsten Wiig looking and acting like Pam, Jason Sudeikis as Jim, Keenan Thompson as Stanley, Amy Poehler as Angela (Wilson at this point hilariously becomes Dwight) and producer Lorne Michaels doing Michael complete with "World's Funniest Boss" cup. Rashida Jones also appears as her character, Karen, from the series. First sketch after that has four men (Wilson, Sudeikis, Bill Hader, and Will Forte) at a bar listening to Loggin and Messina's "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" and recounting increasingly bizarre tales of what happened when they first heard that song. Wilson's tops them all when he mentions having anonymous sex in a bathroom and having "pee coming out of the other guy's ear" as the song was playing in the intercom. It ends in Pulp Fiction style with all four sticking up the bar. An SNL Digital Short has Rainn as an executive trying to cut corners with an increasingly bizarre group meeting with characters like invisible man and sub sandwich. Even Arcade Fire gets in the act! The building their all in then gets demolished. Next is the Nuni sketch with Wilson and Wiig playing a magazine staff encountering a toast chair with mayonnaise, a disco ball chair that keeps spinning, and son Andy Samberg's cotton candy hair, beard, and lower body! Yikes! Then there's a police room ID sketch with Poehler and Mya Rudolph as the detectives trying to get peeper Wilson to find a criminal. He keeps asking to make more like he's peeping to no avail. In the end, Amy and Mya kiss while peeper watches behind a locked door... Next, Arcade Fire performs "Intervention" ending with a Pete Townshend-like guitar smashing finish. On Weekend Update, Amy mentions, "The British are leaving, The British are leaving!" upon news they're taken out of Iraq. Judge Larry Sedlin (Armisen) cries about getting no respect. Prince William (Andy Samberg) vomits after finding out what fighting a war is about causing Seth to ad-lib "This always happens when Andy Samberg, uh, I mean Prince William comes here." Following that three office workers (Wiig, Forte, Wilson) blandly discuss various oddities involving sex, drugs, and crime. We then get a commercial parody of Black Snake Moan with Keenan and Rainn. Next, a New Age music group trying to beat Eyna for the next award without falling apart. Finally, Arcade Fire performs "Keep the Car Running." Most of the sketches worked because of Wilson's presence as he kept performing to the best of whatever character's ability. This was one of the better shows of the season. My favorite was "The Office" parody. Come back, Rainn, when you're next available.
