The nice thing about Kristen Wiig's return to Saturday Night Live this weekend? Because they brought back all her most obnoxious characters -- Gilly, the Target Lady and Denise among them -- we were able to fast-forward through majority of the show, turning a 90-minute sit into a quick, painless three minutes. (Closer to ten minutes with the not-bad monologue).
The one sketch we actually didn't have to fast-forward through? The scary-good send-up of Disney Channel tween sitcoms, Aw Nuts! Mom's a Ghost!, where Wiig's suburban mom is transformed into a Ringu-esque water spirit after she's drowned by her South Korean lover. From Cecily Strong and Bobby Moynihan's spot-on impression of bubbly Disney Factory-made teen actors to the stale, TGIF-era punchlines, we could easily see this show joining Disney's line-up, nestled in between equally preposterous shows like Jessie and Dog With a Blog. Come to think of it, we'd rather have watched a full 22-minute episode of Aw Nuts! Mom's a Ghost! than one second of Denise.
