5 times a week is not enough
2 April 2004 | by (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

Sitcoms get repetitive and boring. Comedy movies are repetitive and boring. Saturday Night Live is.......... sad and pathetic. The one show that can make me laugh on a regular basis, the one show I never get sick of, the one show that's always original because it's the whole concept of the show is WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? I watch this 5 times a week. I have hours worth of episodes on tape. That's not enough. Colin Mochrie may very well be the funniest man alive. He's on like 12 different TV shows here in Canada. That's not good enough. There's no replacement for what Whose Line offered. Since I believe it was the peak of comedy television, and it's off the air now, I can only conclude that the world will soon become very unfunny and I will probably die a depressed and empty man. Unless.......... ABC stops wasting our time with "The Bachelor", "The Bachelorette", and probably soon to be made "The Bachelor: The Senior Citizen Edition"! Get a decent show like Whose Line back on so I won't die depressed and unfulfilled with my human existence! Here for your reading pleasure is a run down of my favourite all-time Whose Line moments.

PARTY QUIRKS: Where Ryan was playing Carol Channing and his head was supposed to get stuck to things. He dragged himself over to Drew's desk and accidentally smashed his head on the front, breaking the glass covering to the neon light thing.

HATS: When they were doing the World's Worst Dating service video. Colin puts on a motorcycle helmet, and all he says is "Hi, I'm Eric Estrada."

RYAN doing an impression of John Wayne and Scooby Doo at the same time.

DREW in 3 Headed Broadway Star. They're supposed to sing one word at a time, and Drew suddenly goes "And take me on a......" in a very enthusiastic voice.

WAYNE BRADY grabbing a girl from out of the audience and accidentally pulling up her dress.

NEWS FLASH: Colin was standing in front of the screen showing clips of HIMSELF. Without realizing what was on the screen, he then utters the line "It all started with a poorly timed Bald Joke".
