While last week’s Saturday Night Live cold open was a little more challenging to identify, it was somewhat harder to pin down what we were getting this time around. Was there one central event worth focusing on? What subject matter would be covered?
Well, the show took on something we honestly did not expect that they would: The Johnny Depp / Amber Heard trial. For starters, we’re not sure how much comedy there really is to be mined from it; the whole situation is just sad, really, and most of the opening sketch tried to convince us that the whole trial was just “funny.” To be specific, the nature of human waste on a bedsheet.
