Andy Samberg in Bedelia (Sleepover) SNL skit

Bedelia (Bedilia) loves her mom, a lot.

I never noticed this before, but Nasim Pedrad picked her Bedelia mom as Tina Fey and dad as Alec Baldwin. I wonder if she did that to pitch this skit whenever Tina or Alec are on (which is a lot).

However, this is getting old and stale. She loves her parents instead of her friends. Got it. We don't really need more of these, do we?

Andy supports well as a high school guy. Taran's nerd actually steals the show (and makes me want to see more of him).

Bedelia's previous (and second) appearance was with Alec Baldwin as her dad (so this week's one is the third time for the skit). As you'll see, it ends the same as the last one, but Taran's role (probably a different character) was played by Bill Hader:

Daddy's little girl needs to spend more time with her peers. (This last one with Alec Baldwin was a little funnier.)

Andy plays the same role in this one too. Check out Andy's wet hair!

My bottom line is that I think Nasim Pedrad needs to step up her writing game before pitching another one of these Bedelia skits.

Examples of stepping up her writing game:

- She goes on a date (restaurant or dance) with Taran's character and thoroughly annoy all their friends at the table.

- Mom (and/or dad) chaperone a school dance that Bedelia's at, get drunk, and actually start embarrassing Bedelia.

- Mom and dad (together) try to purposefully embarrass Bedelia to get her to leave them alone. It doesn't work, but then it ends up working at the end in a strange way.

- Bedelia's friends give her a makeover (including getting her to change what she says), and she cracks.

- The jock (Andy Samberg) makes fun of her but somehow starts to like her (magic potion, she gets a makeover, etc.).

- The jock (Andy Samberg) starts to agree with Bedelia and like/come onto her mom. Bedelia hurriedly tries to convince him out of it.

So there you go, Nasim. Pick one. Anything is better than rewriting past skits.

What do you think, readers?

SNL can sometimes come up short but the Bedelia sketch had me laughing HARD! Now that I've seen both sketches with that character I find myself going on HULU to get my fix. Love her!
