Know why? It was shockingly forgettable. I don't know why. It's fun while you're watching, but you just forget about most of it later. It was such a routine show, which is a surprising comment about an improv show, I admit. It had all the elements of an average Whose Line show - physical comedy, some straightforward improv, and at least one blooper. Something felt kinda old hat about the whole thing. It's the type of show that convinces a few people that WL has jumped the shark.

That said, it was a Ryan & Colin night, with the dynamic duo essentially dominating. Hollywood Director had familiarity, but was funny. Colin calls Ryan on stealing a line from himself, yet he repeats two of his own Director styles from the past? No points for Colin. The Yo Mama jokes were hilariously dumb.

IYKWIM was standard routine, with Ryan and Brad taking a few too many obvious ones, and Colin saying a normal sentence just to break the others' concentration.

Whose Line shows why it's not played much anymore - the game has lost it's spark that we saw in full force in the Alamo scene. And for the record, Colin getting the best Whose Line line of the four I honestly believe was a happy accident. Although I think it'd be fun to see Ryan cope with that line.

Greatest Hits had the aforementioned blooper. Yes, Wayne contributed to the erronous song, but Linda DID throw them both off at the start.

Helping Hands is a game where I really don't care much about the other person, so Drew was just, well, there to me. I was just focusing on how Ryan carried the scene. Although Drew has really annoyed me this season, so I admit he brought down the game significantly.

Anyhow, it all made a decent yet forgettable show which is just another blip on the radar screen.
