I agree that both shows were pretty good. It's never a waste of time if you literally laugh at loud a few times even if you just shrug at some of the bits.

SH. Need I say, and yes I will, that Colin was my favorite. I loved his Mad Cow Man, particularly because he was angry, not crazy. A quibble: He said his milk was all dried up, but Ryan came in gesturing for milk, so Colin had to give it to him. But, what else could he do? It's one of the rules of improv, not to say no or something like that.

I don't know about Duet. I really liked the belly dancers because I find them fascinating to watch. Nothing sexual (for me); it's just that they move so well. But the song... well, although there were some good lines, it didn't do much for me. And didn't they have belly dancers before?

SFAH was good.

Living Scenery was the usual, though Ryan & Colin seemed more reluctant than usual to really touch the women. Maybe because of how they were dressed. The women, not R&C. I think when Colin mentioned the vibrating beds, he expected Drew to buzz the end. But Drew, doofus that he sometimes is, let it go on. Colin had to figure out a way to lie down without being lewd.

As for Theme Restaurant... good and bad. First off, they played this differently from how they played it before. Don't the restaurant patrons usually act as if they're in a regular restaurant with all the weird stuff going on around them? But Drew (or was it Chip?) announced "Hey, here we are in Steven Spielberg's restaurant!" Ugh. Then Drew has to make critiques on every movie R&C reference. Ugh. I did enjoy Colin doing the "Big meatball!" bit (as well as announcing that it was from Raiders of the Lost Ark, which he figured he might as well do since Drew was doing it anyway). Also when Chip started the Jaws theme and Colin clicked off the radio, "Sorry, that shouldn't be on." Also his Duel bit was funny.

Can someone explain Ryan's joke about beef or pork? Was this in A.I.?

As for as the second show, I was so glad to see Jeff again. I can't say who I like to see more: Jeff, Chip, Brad, or Greg. It's great to see all of them.

I enjoyed LMAD. The lady, Carol, that Wayne pulled out of the audience was so good. She kind of reminded me of Caroline Quentin. And Ryan was so right-on about the length of his suggestion. Of course, all of them have been novelettes for a while now.

Newsflash. Silly me. At first I thought, "Geez. This is going to be boring, watching guys skateboard." Then started the wipeouts. Ryan & Chip gave a couple of good clues, but it seemed like all Colin was hearing was "Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!" He cracked me up.

SFAH was good. My favorite was in Inappropriate Professions for Breaking into Song, with Colin's "I'm a mime!"

GH... Only two songs. I assume there were more. Were only two suitable for airing? I thought it was clever of Wayne to twist the "dark" reference to black people. But then, Jeff did his side of the singing with daylight in mind. Oh well. So they weren't in sync.

Hoedown. Drew's was a pretty good verse, probably the best of them. I wonder if it would have been even funnier if he hadn't sung to his right hand all thru it, but brought it up next to the end, right before bringing up his left. Another minor quibble.
