Based on my own self-impose hype of wanting it to be just like the good old days.....a major letdown. Big time. A couple of solid episodes, but the rest of either been hit or miss or just flat out sucked donkey balls.

A few weeks behind on the show. So, just watched the episode with the two football chicks from the Lingerie League. They of course look amazing. Yowza! But beyond them looking incredibly hot, the episode itself was horrible. Everyone was particularly bad. The two chicks were really bad. Bad as in watching a train wreck in slow motion. Ugh. I think there is just one episode left for me to watch, but even if it turns out to be the greatest episode ever, as a whole, this season sucked enough that I think they need to retire the show once and for all. The only way I can see getting excited for the show again would be to bring back some of the former players from its best years.

Sounds like you really need to revisit the golden years.

No. That's the problem. I cherry pick clips and skits from those golden years and it just makes this season look incredibly weak. Maybe if I wasn't watching clips, it would make this season....."better".

From what I've seen from the new season, any full ep of the old series would rock.  I still think that they're just taking a half hour and expecting it to be good instead of doing two forty-five minute sessions and trimming 'em down (the LAST "season" was made of the leftovers from those tapings and they're pretty lousy).

I wonder if part of the stagnation also has to do with a smaller common pool of knowledge to draw upon... the old series had a bunch of mainstays they went to (Star Wars, Titanic, the horrible 2000 election kerfuffle), but not as much as The Exorcist, there's just-- what can we assume the cast is saavy enough to know enough about to play off of?  I mean, you can probably take any big name movie and turn it into a game (Colin as the girl in the Hunger Games, the Avengers rap, number of words Game Of Thrones, and so on and so on)

Well that's kind of the problem with this season. There is a ton of sh*t that is tailor-made to mock and make fun of, but they keep going back to the same damn thing. For most of the season there has been this over reliance of using the Exorcist as their crutch and ironically enough, there was a running Star Wars gag throughout the entire episode (the one with the two football chicks). If their excuse as to why they aren't using current media to broaden their knowledge (bag of tricks), then they should turn in their Stand-Up Comedy Badge if they are not willing to prep and do the work. A comedian, even one that ad-lib's and does improv comedy, has to be aware of what's hot and new and current. That's what comedy is all about. I guarantee you that if Don Rickles was a guest on the show, he would absolutely be able to use current stuff and make it work.

My All-Star cast on Whose Line Is It Anyways would be Don Rickles, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Sam Kinison. Now THAT would be awesome to see these cats riffing off one another on the same stage together with the same games that this season is failing at, I'd pay 1k for one ticket to see it live. Too bad 3/4 of that lineup is gone.

Wouldn't work.  As Mel Brooks said once, "there's no room for genius in ensemble."  Maybe if you had one per episode, but all four?  I dunno.  Besides, how good were their improv skills, outside of Rickles?

Of course it would work. The only way it wouldn't work is if they let their ego's get in the way to the point where it was all "me, me, me". I use to do Improv with my friends and it's pretty damn liberating to work as a team and help your fellow players all with the goal of moving the scene along. Now as I said before, if their ego's weren't in check, then yeah, it wouldn't work. But I don't know if anyone of them were selfish people and that they wouldn't work well as teammates. I'd like to think that with them being comedians, they would in fact try to help one another, especially in their prime years. Yes, I'm very aware that comedians in general are very cutthroat and will stop at nothing to one up their competition, no matter what the cost was.

I just watched the last episode of the season with Shawn Johnson. I like her as an athlete and her interviews, but going into this episode, I knew that she wouldn't bring anything to the table and THIS is what's inherently wrong with Season 10. Bringing on 'name' celebs for the sole purpose of filling in a seat shows that the show-runner doesn't know what they are doing. If you're going to bring on celebs, at least bring on people that have a background in improv or acting in general. Sticking in athletes or whoever, with no training is just....cringe inducing. If they don't care about anyone having improv skills or training, then at least go back to using people from the audience. At least then I wouldn't expect them to contribute in a meaningful way.

With that said, this episode was funny for the most part, but that's because Wayne saved it BIG time. He owned Song Styles as he always does. But his turns in the other skits were just as funny. Hell man, even Sideways Scenes was funny and not once did they rely on 'Horror' to get them through it either.

While the Mouse Traps game in the Colin and Brad DVD is HILARIOUS, this one feels so much more classic Whose Line.  I can't believe I hadn't seen it until now.
