If you’re anything like us, you’ve been a fan of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” since the British episodes started airing on Comedy Central in the early 1990s. And you are also extremely happy to have these funny folks back on your TV.
The premiere episode featured a couple new improvers, Gary Anthony Williams and Heather Anne Campbell, plus some special guests — “Walking Dead’s” Lauren Cohan and “Glee’s” Kevin McHale.
Favorite games were played — Scenes From a Hat, Let’s Make a Date, Living Scenery — plus there were new games, like What’s In the Bag and Sideways Scene. The Sideways Scene was particularly a lot of fun, as the improves laid on their sides and performed on a red set, which was then shown right-way up on TV. Trust us, it’s a lot cooler than it sounds here.
What did you think about Aisha Tyler as the new host? She seems like a lot of fun, though we do miss Drew Carey (“Andtakemona”) and even Clive Anderson sometimes (“me Clive Anderson saying, ‘Good night’ Good night!”
Overall, we were definitely thrown right back into what we love about the show. We hope to see Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood — maybe they can get Chip Esten away from “Nashville.”
Below are our favorite GIFs from the premiere, plus a couple old favorites. What did you think of the new “Whose Line”?
