When I first heard about this show, I got quite excited. As one of many who have loved "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and watched "The Green Screen Show" and "Improv-A-ganza" just for these guys, I was really looking forward to a reunion of sorts.
But...I was bitterly disappointed. The improv in it doesn't seem as sharp, edgy or funny as I know these guys can do. Most of the guests are obnoxious, indifferent and seem out of place (Ricky Gervais especially acted like he was abducted by aliens and was about to be probed.) I keep watching it just to relive the "Whose Line" feelings, but they never come. It's just way too formulaic and the way it's carried out doesn't favor the improvisers.
A shame, really. No idea why they chose to do this show, but they must have guessed it wouldn't be a success...
