Yeah, the writing's been spotty for the longest time. I often gave it a pass because I know how hard it is to come up with good material in just a couple of days. The talent just hasn't been there for me. Maybe it's just my connection to the old guard. I liked a lot of the newer people five years ago, but the "newer newer" people I haven't quite connected with. There's no one like Forte, Sudeikis, Armisen (in his prime sans Wiig), or Hader. Not to mention Fey and Poehler, of course.
