Martin Freeman’s turn hosting Saturday Night Live was one of the season’s best episodes, but that doesn’t mean they got everything right. Indeed, it appears that much like the James Franco episode, at least one great sketch was left on the cutting room floor.
This time, we get to see a weirdly dark side of Freeman as he discusses using bear traps to snare Santa Claus, then turn him into “Santa Burgers.” Cecily Strong also does excellent work as Freeman’s mildly terrified wife, who tries her best to explain why her husband is trying to kill St. Nick.
It may not be quite as topical as the Ferguson sketch from last week, but come on, who doesn’t love a couple good cannibalism jokes? Plus, Freeman's American accent is on-point.
