Editorial Reviews

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it just might be Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the hilarious series where gifted comics devise sketches, impersonations and songs based on suggestions, props and inspired goofiness from off-beat and off-the-wall host Drew Carey and an equally playful audience. Ever wonder what an excitable dog would do on a Let's Make a Date TV show? Or an astronaut with an alien inside him? And what would a newscast be like if the news anchors were smart-aleck school kids showing off in class? Join Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady and other stars in one hilariously hot-wired situation after another from 2 delicious discs worth of the complete, first 10 episodes of Season One. It's daring. It's delirious. It's comedy without a net.

I first became aware of "Whose Line is it Anyway?" through the reruns of the original British version on Comedy Central. Though Clive Anderson (the original host) was not as funny as Drew Carey, he had a knack for delivering witty barbs and insults. Then, in 1998, the show came to America (apparently, we wanted it and bought it). Clive Anderson came with it, but after a handful of episodes, he was replaced with Drew Carey. I guess the stuffed suits in the studio thought that American audiences would relate better to an American host.

Most episodes of the American "Whose Line" star Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Drew Carey, with a fourth actor rotating in and out. These usually consisted of Greg Proops (a frequent guest on the British 'Whose Line'), Chip Esten (also occasionally on the British), Brad Sherwood (also seen in UK), Kathy Greenwood, and Denny Siegel, though there were also appearances by Ian Gomez (Larry Almada on 'The Drew Carey Show'), Steven Colbert (yes, THE Steven Colbert!), Kathy Kinney (Mimi on 'The Drew Carey Show'. You can see her here without makeup!), and my all-time favorite, Josie Lawrence, a frequent participant in the British 'Whose Line', whose comic genius and musical abilities made an excellent complement to Wayne's on the American. Though many women have appeared on "Whose Line" since it first debuted in the UK, Josie, IMHO, is the "Whose Line Diva".

The cast participates in various improv games, and improved songs, most of which set the audience roaring in laughter (and me too!), especially in one of the most popular games, "Hoedown", one of the remnants from the UK's version.

A Kid's Review on October 18, 2006
Format: DVD
This 2 disk Whose Line DVD Set is a great way to spend money if you like comedy shows. With 10 episodes from the 1st season (1998), the episodes are generally pretty good. (Parents: Please note the episodes ARE censored. the 'Uncensored' label actually refers to the special features, which are not for ones who dislike strong lanuage and/or themes. So if you have kids and let them watch the show on tv, they can watch this if you keep them away from the special features) The Special Features are HILARIOUS!!!!! They show games that never made it to tv, and 2 gag reels, (my favorites) which are where most of the Strong Language comes from, Which show you how many ideas were rejected by the censor (whom the preformers hated) By the way, don't miss a long scene in the gag reel where Ryan Styles keeps trying to ask for a restroom break. The only real complaint I have with the DVD is that it could use more episodes. So all in all, buy this DVD! You will be happy you did.

The show gets 5 stars... but I give Warner Bros. 3 stars for the way they marketed and released this show. ONE: the UNCENSORED version is ONLY regarding the bonus features. You WILL still hear the beeps and the word 'censored' over certain hand gestures, etc. on the episodes. There is only one example of this on this set and that is the very last episode during Hoedown where Ryan Stiles makes a reference to 'using my right hand'(which is beeped). TWO: not releasing the entire season is a letdown. So we have to pay full price for a half season? To me that is a litte annoying and smacks of greed. THREE: The episode list is confusing. There are 5 episodes on each disc. Do they say "episode 1", "episode 2", etc? Noooooo. They say -for example- Episode 106, episode 102, episode 111, etc. So somewhere they did a lot of slicing and dicing before they first aired this show back in 1998. I hope Warner Bros. looks at these reviews because I would like to see these things fixed in future DVD sets. Otherwise, the show is great and funny as it always was and the gag reels is hillarious. 20 minutes of goofs up and Ryan pleading(or acting up) for a restroom break, etc. LOL. I didn't realise so much work went into filming this show... you will see what I mean if you watch the Gag reels. Great show but Please release entire seasons! And get the cast to do some sort of 'making of' or commentaries!

When this show was on a few years ago, I always made time to sit down and watch it. It didn't have a script, or a plot, or acting. But, nevertheless, it was vastly entertaining, and, for my money, more funny than most sitcoms that were out at the time. Whose Line Is It Anyway? was always better viewed with some of your friends helplessly howling with you, while simultaneously marvelling at the quick wits and inventiveness of the cast. Now, I've never been much of a Drew Carey fan; he doesn't really make me laugh. But he was the main reason the American version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? was put on the airwaves, so, for this, he gets my thanks.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? was an improvisational comedy show which had British roots; it used the premise of a game show as a framework, with a host and a panel of four participants, except that, in this game show, the points don't really matter and the winner is arbitrarily chosen by Drew Carey. As host, Carey got to choose the scenario or "game" the players would play. All in all, the cast was wondrously dependable in their ability to tickle our funny bone. These guys were excellent ad-libbers. I did feel, however, that the segment where the "winner" gets to do something with Drew near the episode's end was almost always a let down. I'm not sure if this is because of my antipathy towards Drew or because Drew just isn't that good at improvising.

What made the show work was that the contestants were genuinely funny performers; add to that the fact that three of the participants were regulars, which gave 'em the chance to get in sync with each other comedically, resulting, almost paradoxically, in a tighter, improvisational style of levity. Discounting Drew, there were three regulars: Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Wayne Brady.

Censored or Uncensored
This would be the uncensored version becuase the Rating states "Unrated". If you search again, you will find another version being sold on here but the rating states "PG" which would be the censored version. Hope that explains it.

Question about Uncensored
Just the extras, not the episodes. But only one episode on this DVD has a word bleeped out so it's not a huge deal.

Richard Simmons - in any of these?
It's not in these. I have that episode on my DVR and watch it several times a year. It's been on my DVR almost two years now. That was the best show ever.
