Let's face it, this is why you write for Will Ferrell, to come up with characters like Gareth - the Southwest Airlines flight attendant who's back after a month-long sabbatical and ready to share his hot take on how death is final.

Simply put: The Saturday Night Live Season 43 premiere makes it seem like it's going to be a long year.

SNL was was the emptiest show of 2017, and the fact that it was so over-praised makes me worry we'll learn nothing at all from this particular moment in pop cultural history.

Despite its reputation for political comedy, last night's season premiere proved that Saturday Night Live is much better when it avoids politics.
