Improv Madness At Its Best
1 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show. Loved it loved it loved it.

It's like going to see a performance of "Drew Carey's Improv All-Stars" but without the $85/seat price-tag. They play a lot of the traditionally live games that were never/rarely shown on "Whose Line," like New Choice, Freeze, and Conducted Story, and these 3 games turned out to be the highlights of the show's short-lived run (??? Not cancelled yet). I absolutely loved Jeff Davis's "rubber baby buggy bumper business" Swedish new choice, messing up the "Yoga Hurts" punchline in Freeze, and the "Onion Sam" conducted story.

What's more, "Whose Line's" supporting but rarely featured actors really got a chance to shine in "The Green Screen". I had no idea Jeff Bryan Davis was so funny! Brad Sherwood stole the show on more than one occasion, often by popping up in games he wasn't supposed to be involved with (like as the Grim Reaper in "Hollywood Moments). And it's always a pleasure to watch adorable Chip Davis and smarmy Greg Proops.

I don't really get why hardcore "Whose Line" fans are bashing this show. The animation really adds to the experience (like the horse that censored Drew Carey), and it's a pleasure to get to watch The Gang in action, especially since "Whose Line" stopped production. Sure, the games are different, but it doesn't matter what game they are playing - I got a good laugh out of most of them. And Ryan Stiles wasn't there, but the show was canceled before they could air the episode he guest-starred in. Besides, we get to see more of Chip/Brad/Greg/Jeff, as well as reliable Colin, and TV newcomers Sean/Jonathan/Kathy/Julie (and unaired Kaitlin Olson), so there's plenty of talented performers! Bring back "The Green Screen." I really miss it. It was a fabulous show. Just give it a decent time slot so it's not up against "Will and Grace", "Survivor", and "The OC" (Really WB executives - that time slot was suicide).
