Whose Line Is It Anyway was excellent, but here the special effects just distract the viewer from what made it so good. This seems like nothing but a showcase for the technical possibilities. The animations and sounds don't add anything useful to the scenes at all. It makes you feel like you're reading a book with all the events already imagined in your head as acted out by cartoon characters.
Most of the actors are still doing a good job. Colin Mochrie stands out every now and then even without Ryan Stiles. Unfortunately most of the time even his talent is wasted when wrapped in cartoons. Drew Carey's best talent is not in improvising, but here he's taken a bigger role in the games as well.
It's nowhere near as funny as Whose Line Is It Anyway.
