>What a let down. The least entertaining hour of WL in
>months. The first show was average, but it was all
>downhill from there.

I disagree with you about the first show-I thought it was great (a strong one for Wayne) though I agree with you about the 2nd show. I'm not sure why those games made it to air. I thought the 2nd show was flat, had little laughs and maybe they should have just left it with the two other shows from other season.
>First show:
># Of Words has always been a fun game. No exception

I really liked this one. Kathy did a pretty good job. I got to give them credit because I would think this would be a tricky game to do. Wayne did a good job and it seemed to flow nicely. Watching this one game made me think when they used to do it in the UK version. Steven Frost seemed to not be very good at this game at all and sort of picked a normal phrase and stop when he hit his limit, kind of stuttering all the way.
>Infomercial was hella fun. It could've gone on longer,
>I think.

Yeah, I wonder if something got cut from this. There's a pause when we see Drew laughing at his desk. I wish it could have been longer.

Song Styles, as much as I love special guests, was a

>performance all this season in my opinion. Amazing. In

>really was making an effort to make the points
>actually matter. That was really cool!

I think so too. Even tough Prince had been done before, Linda and Laura did different music from a different song. Wayne did a good job but didn't he seem to run out of lyrics by the end of the song?
>SFAH was aiight. Kathy had amazing suggestions.

Yeah, it was neat to see the woman's view point of some of the suggestions.
>NF was boring. It wasn't particularly impressive.

At least you could sit and watch it without peaking thru your fingers like this week. I'm not sure why they put this in again, it seems like NF has been overdone. Does anyone agree?
>WW was disgusting. Yet a LITTLE funny. Despite the
>overused lines.

I thought there was some funny ones thought this game isn't the same without Greg.

I thought this show was a good one for Wayne. He impressed me in number of words and song styles.
>Second show:
>Superheroes made it to air with all those product
>references?? Jesus. Brad really stuck it to 'em too!
>Ryan had me on the floor.
>Sound Effects has long worn out its welcome with me.
>This game sparked the most annoying running gag in the
>entire series.

I don't think it's lost its welcome. Sound effects works when they have audience members who TRY to make sounds. I enjoyed Diane and Gloria and the two who did the Tarzan one. These two ladies just stood their and didn't even pick up on C & R cues. How hard is to to make a clicking sound to a seat belt? I felt like I most of missed something when Drew was cracking up laughing and the audience members and the guys were making a running joke out of it. Maybe something got edited where it was just a case where you had to be there. I'm not sure why this one made it to air.
>Title Sequence didn't have a very strong suggestion.

I thought it was funny though when Ryan passed out and Colin went thru his pockets.
>IYKWIM was less entertaining that usual.
>Film Dub really impressed me. I loved the song.
>The worst SFAH ever played. Decidedly so. Not a laugh
>to be had. So much of the "ooooh" which wasn't even
>funny in the first place. From this game, we see that
>Colin ripped off an old Ryan line in the previous
>show's World's Worst.

But actually I think this taping occured before the other one. The other two shows from this taping were in season 3 so actually Ryan ripped off Colin's old line or varied it or it shows that their minds do work alike.
>Hoedown was average.
>The first show was average. The second show was one of
>the worst of the US version. If there is a list of the
>worst US shows, I will see to it this makes the top 5.
>I disliked it THAT much.

Yeah, I thought the second show was weak but the other two episodes from this taping weren't really my favorite either. So maybe it was a bad night for all the guys. I'm not sure why most of these games made it to air. I hope this ep won't cause viewers who started watching the show again this summer to not watch it again.
