Episode 8 is quite possibly the worst episode ever in its entire series history. That was bad all around. Even 'Helping Hands" more or less sucked by having Keegan picking up props, handing them to Colin as well as talking waaaaaay too much to the point of stepping on Ryan's lines. Well, lines that he tried to get out of his mouth. Sideway Scene was another bust. It was so bad that it barely even made it to the 1 minute mark before they buzzed out the skit all together. Sure enough, after the opening 'Prison escape' in the scene, Aisha calls out "okay, you guys are in a horror scene". Really? Are you STILL going to go there? F*ck!

What's in the bag was also another failure. Everything about this episode was a train wreck and I barely **** a smile during the 30 minute episode. If the rest of the episodes are like this, I will be calling it quits. I have another episode to watch, but after this latest episode, I am in no hurry to watch the next one. Sigh.

The fact that I don't feel like I'm missing anything by not seeing this show is a REAL f'ing shame.  I guess the original was lightning in a bottle 9granted, a bottle that lasted a LONG time) but they've been trying and trying to bring it back in various guises over the years and it doesn't sound like it's working.

Well, there are only so many ways to riff on the same idea before one begins to swipe from previous episodes. I also think that Aisha is part of the problem as well. I wasn't a Drew Carey fan by any stretch, but he did bring something to the table that she has not be able to do thus far. Also, they need to bring back past players like Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Chip Esten. I get why Esten would be a no show, but what the f*ck are Proops and Sherwood doing that is so damn important that they can't stop by?

I think they're trying to transition in these new guys so they can phase out the old, expensive players.

Episode 9 is probably my favorite episode so far this season and worlds better than last weeks.......weak offering. I'm kinda shocked that it has taken 9 episodes to finally get to one of my favorite bits and that's Greatest Hits. Both songs were awesome. Props to Wayne Brady and Jeff Davis. But it's the set up by Ryan and Colin that made it work.

The other truly funny skit of the night was Helping Hands with Laila Ali. Veeeeeeeeeeeery funny. I was laughing so hard, tears were rolling down my face. Thank you for a great episode. I was really concerned for the series based on the previous episode.

F'in FINALLY.  How few episodes of the old series didn't have Greatest Hits?  That was, like, the go-to guaranteed crowd pleaser of the series.  Can't wait to see it.

Whose Line is is Anyways? Stephen Colbert

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMnGG2CnefU

While watching a mini Stephen Colbert marathon last night on YouTube, came across this which I had never seen before. I didn't even know he had been on the show. It's pretty good. I got a few good laughs out of it.

You never saw that before?  Wow.

Colbert as an actor popped up quite a few places in the 90s, the Dana Carvey Show, Spin City...

Okay, you seriously need to watch The Dana Carvey Show, it had Dana, obviously, but Steve Carrell was in it with Stephen Colbert,  Elon Gold, Robert Smigel (Triumph), and the writers included Charlie Kaufman, Louis C.K. (who DOES appear in a couple eps), Jon Glaser, Dino Stamatopoulos, Spike Feresten, and Robert Carlock.

Six eps on Crackle.  I wanted to post the old racists sketch from Episode 6 because it's priceless but I couldn't find it on its' own.

I love Maggie Q in pretty much everything she has done, especially Nikita and I was very much looking forward to seeing what she could bring to the world of Who's Line Is It Anyway. Um....this was not good. She was way out of her element and I feel that she really didn't understand the rules of what is expected of her. It's really simple, Colin supplies the voice and she has to move her mouth to match his at best as she can. Well, she wasn't doing any of that. More mime than anything else. But this did provide Ryan a great line by telling her "it's like your talking to me telepathically as if I'm reading your mind". This did get a good laugh. But I felt bad that Maggie wasn't so much in the skit as it was happening. She was happy to be there though. As for the rest of the show....meh. Helping Hands was okay.

And Maggie Q was in a bunch of the promos (at least the ones I saw) leading up to the new series.  How much of a letdown would you say this season is on the whole?  And could it be saved?
