SNL funny: “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”

I’ll give credit where it’s due – while Saturday Night Live is still very hit-or-miss these days, I enjoyed this sketch a lot.  It’s “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”, a takeoff on the classic Twilight Zone episode featuring Jude Law.

A few things sold me on this bit – Jude Law’s facial expressions, which recalled William Shatner’s panicked looks in the original, Bobby Moynihan as the gremlin, and Pearl Jam on the wing of the plane.  Oh yeah, and smoked cedar plank salmon.  Because all gremlins love fish.
