Watch Chris Pratt and the 'Saturday Night Live' cast push the superhero genre to its limits

New, 24 comments

After a tumultuous offseason, Saturday Night Live returned last night with the first episode of season 40. None other than Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt guest starred, and as you'd expect, the show wasn't short on superhero gags. The show poked fun at Marvel's seeming inability to make a dud with a list of Guardians of the Galaxy remixes — each more preposterous than the rest. One of the other more memorable skits explores the same territory as Watchmen by imagining what would happen if superheroes lived in the real world. The result is a little more... juvenile.
