2. 'Girls' Promo
Congratulations, newcomer Noël Wells: Your first at-bat and you hit it out of the park with a spot-on Lena Dunham impersonation. It's not just Wells nailing her Hannah Horvath-isms, Kate McKinnon doing an eerie impersonation of Jemima Kirke/Jessa's Euro-decadent attitude and accent, or how the faux-promo replicates the HBO show's boho Brooklyn vibe. No, what makes this sketch shine is Tina Fey's Blerta, an Albanian immigrant whose presence emphasizes how shallow the quartet's first-world problems seem compared to the rest of the world. ("My ex-boyfriend is an Internet millionaire!" "My ex-boyfriend is buried in shallow grave…on windy days, the dirt covering him blows away and you can see skull.") Even if you're a Girls fan, it's tough to watch the show now and not think of this takedown, or at least picture Fey's Blerta slapping Vanessa Bayer's Shoshanna with a rubber hand. And that last punchline is a killer.
