In what turned out to be one of those lackluster episodes of Saturday Night Live, Lena Dunham tried her damndest to make us laugh and, not surprisingly, made herself the butt of more than a few punch lines.

And even though the episode left much to be desired, there were still some must see moments that will for sure keep the internet buzzing for at least the next few hours.

I really wanted to enjoy the Girls star during her first stint hosting the sketch show. I really did. But it just seemed as if everything was happening around her instead of because of or to her.

This happens often though and usually isn't noticeable until a chameleon like Melissa McCarthy takes the reigns.

Here though, are a few of the moments in which Lena proved that she truly is a comedic genius.

THE OPENING MONOLOGUE

Lena started strong and quickly  began making fun of the nudity she is so often criticized for. We were very happy that Ms. Dunham chose to avoid a musical opening, as that has been done to death people...TO DEATH.

"OHH CHILD" DIGITAL SHORT

This short is hysterical, because it's so smart. You won't see the end coming from a million miles away and Lena's frustration throughout is spot on.

BIBLICAL MOVIE

Maybe it's because I love Girls so much, but I would 100% see The Garden of Eden as interpreted by Shoshanna, Hannah, and Adam.

"SCANDAL"

I usually don't like these sketches, because they alienate anyone who doesn't watch the source material. This time around though, Lena plays a character who says exactly what the audience is thinking.

That wig though....not good.

WEAKEST SKETCH: THE KATT WILLIAMS SHOW

Lena as Liza seems like it should have been a good idea.

And, for the record, Ellen DeGeneres did not call Liza Minnelli a transvestite. She called her a Drag Queen. Yes, there is a difference.

SURPRISE GUEST

In a sketch that was kind of funny, Mad Men star Jon Hamm dropped in to a very awkward situation.

Any follow-up questions?
