This week's "Saturday Night Live" managed to mock Scientology, the religion/cult/billion-dollar business recently humiliated by the documentary "Going Clear," without actually making very much up.
In a video about "Neurotology," a religion that is virtually indistinguishable from Scientology, the cast sings a horrible, amazing, drippingly '80s song about the benefits of Neurotology, complete with references to Dianetics and the flawless performance of Bobby Moynihan as an L. Ron Hubbard equivalent.
If the SNL writers had just given us a perfect music video parody, it would have been enough. If they had just put Kyle Mooney in a cotton-polyester blend turtleneck, it would have been enough. But they also told us where each Neurotology member ended up, and that's what pushes this sketch over the line from great to brilliant.
