Reviews from The Archives

  • Dean's guide review from the Idiotsite:
    • Best Game: It's very hard to top Hollywood Director here. It is hilarious from beginning to end, with all 4 having good parts, including Wayne's good Elvis, Brad wearing a chair on his head, Colin doing a nice Elvis dance and Ryan gulping down fish.
    • Worst Game: Title Sequence slows down the show a tad. The concepts the audience yells don't work.
    • Drew's Best Bit: Making fun of Wayne about how hard hosting is when Wayne has difficulty reading the card for Helping Hands.
    • Brad's Best Bit: Probably charging into the Hollywood Director scene and yelling "LAPD!!!" and beating up Wayne instead of Ryan.
    • Wayne's Best Bit: His Elvis is surprisingly good... actually probably the best of the three.
    • Colin's Best Bit: When he is trying to attach the jumper cables to certain parts of his anatomy in Informercial..."My nipples aren't cold enough".
    • Ryan's Best Bit: This is a little thing, but especially enjoyed the inside humor in Helping Hands when he admits that the ice cream he just ate is GOOD.
    • Credits should have been read by: It's really hard to choose from Colin and Ryan here since both have excellent shows but I'll pick the taller one just because I haven't in awhile. He has that sparkle in his eye in this episode, which he's been lacking in recent series.
    • Should have stayed home and considered the matter from a hippopotamus's point of view: Brad didn't have a particularly good show, including quite possibly the worst Elvis I've ever seen...what was that?
    • Overall: A A very good show with some good game selection. It's pleasing to see that they've moved away from some of the overplayed games of the last few years, especially Let's Make a Date and Greatest Hits.
