It's been a competitive few days on TV land. Everyone's either in sad, anxious anticipation of Breaking Bad's finale or they're ready to go on the rebound with the first episode of season three Homeland that's due to air on the same night. So anything that manages to capture your attention for five seconds in these emotionally tumultuous times has got to be pretty damn special.
Enter Tiny Fey's Saturday Night Live Girls parody. It's a three-minute sketch of vintage Girls highlights, re-imagined with a bonus character Blerta -- Hannah Horvath's new Albanian roommate. (Played by Fey course!) There are plenty of choice sound bites in there, including the moment a starving Blerta asks Shosh if she can eat "the doughnut on her head" and the dinner table chat where Jessa asks the straight-faced Blerta where she got her outfit from and she simply replies, "A fire."
Talent-wise, the full line-up features Noelle Wells as Hannah, Cecily Strong as Marni, Vanessa Bayeras as Shoshanna and Kate McKinnonn as Jessa. We intend to watch this thing on repeat until the real thing comes back on air.
