'Key & Peele' Season 3 premiere: Which sketch was your favorite?Add to Favorites | Key & Peele
A lot's happened since "Key & Peele" last left the air, and in the premiere episode, the boys wasted no time commenting on the insanity that's gone on in the world since they've been gone. Some of that left certain sketches feeling a little stale (no matter how funny that "Les Miserables" spoof was, it's safe to say that the movie has long been removed from the public consciousness), but it wasn't a total loss. That cold open sketch with Peele walking through a white neighborhood in a black hood (a clear reference to Trayvon Martin) grew more and more heightened until the typically pointed, yet goofy, denouement, reminding us why we love this show so.
Other highlights? The rap hypeman gone wrong sketch that devolved in a hysterical "Of Mice and Men" spoof ("Steinbeck, y'all!") and, of course, the return of President Obama and his anger translator, Luthor. What began as a comment on the NSA revelations from this summer became a typically ridiculous exploration of the American public's porn obsession. We wouldn't expect anything less.
But enough about what we loved. What were your favorite moments from the Season 3 premiere of "Key & Peele"? Let us know in the comments below.
"Key & Peele" airs on Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
