So "every" episode is on the CW Seed site, and that's great. However, it seems to be missing some episodes. Season 1, which is 20 episodes long, only has 16 episodes listed on the site, and I couldn't find the infamous "Africa's a continent" episode from season 2.

Why were certain episodes omitted?

Was Chip cast in Nashville before or after production began on the second American run?

Should we make the page quote an actual quote?

Tongue-Tied: Before a playing of "Number of Words", Drew said, "Now the trick to this game, and this is what makes it a rainy gay- day fun game for the kids..." Ryan jumped on his flub, of course. (he was probably trying to say "great rainy day fun game for the kids")

Natter goes on discussion page, YMMV, or WMG depending on context.

Another "Millionaire Show" example of disorganized outline speech:

Brad asked in one episode: "Is the answer to this question: A) B, B) C, C) A, or D) D?"

Moved from main. I'm sure there's a better fit for it.

What episode does Ryan make the whore-horror mistake? Link (youtube if possible) graciously desired.

That's from the Film, TV & Theater Styles with Ryan as a truck driver giving a ride to hitchhikers Colin and Kathy (who's in labor).

I noticed a while back how Scott Pilgrim had a seperate Shout-Out page. That's probably the only reason the Shout-Out entry in the main page here hasn't run out of control like the Running Gag section. Turns out you can make that page too. So do we wanna do this?

In the "Ensemble Darkhorse" section, it claims that the reason Mike Mc Shane wasn't on the U.S. version is because of a backstage argument with the producers. Is this true? If so, source? This is the first I've heard about it.

Mike explained in a radio interview that it was more Executive Meddling that got him removed from Whose Line. Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson had been trying to sell the show to the US for years, and eventually they started bowing to whastever demand a US executive through, and one of those demands was, get rid of Mike and Tony.

This has been bugging me for years. Perhaps you fellow Whose Line fans can help me out.

Whenever "Shakespeare" is used in "Film, TV & Theater Styles", Ryan frequently says something to the equivalent of "If this ____ were a ______, he would be a _______". That's gotta be from a Shakespeare play, but which one? And bonus points, does anyone know the original line that Ryan is always parodying?

When did the games list disappear?

It...didn't? It's right there on the page, in a folder.

My mistake. Was it always in a folder, though? If not, that's probably what tripped me.

Nope, just got folderized. Yeah, that always throws me off when something that's been rather large gets folderized.

Maybe it should be subdivided into three folders for two-player, three- and four, just to makethings easier. Likewise, I was thinking that the tropes list below could be subdivided as well, into General/In-game, Isolated Incidents, and Production/Meta.

I see that "The Scrappy" and its examples of Kathy Greenwood and Archie Hahn was deleted. While I can definitely see why one would think that's merely a fan using that trope to voice his disgust with a certain performer, it's really not. Check the archive.org listing for Whose Line on Jump The Shark. Numerous fans complained about Kathy Greenwood's performance. She has her fans, yes, but so does Scrappy.

Crap. I forgot JTS has a robots file and thus can't be archived by archive.org. Forget it then.

Yeah, I thought it was just "one guy complains about this one character", which is what a lot of supposed Scrappies are. I'm not a fan of her, I just thought it was another abuse of The Scrappy.

No prob. Just wanted to explain my reasoning. FTR, I actually don't hate Kathy Greenwood. She can be funny on occasion. That said, when it comes to the fourth performer, I'd want either Greg, Brad, Chip, or Jeff over Kathy in a heartbeat. And when it comes to female performers, I always thought Denny Siegel adjusted to the improv atmosphere better than Kathy.

Yeah, she's okay, but her scenes usually have the other performers picking up the pieces around here.

I liked Kathy Greenwood. She didn't do much, but she tried and definitely had her moments. Kathy Griffin, on the other hand...

Kathy Griffin was actually pretty funny, but the problem is, she was underused and came to the party late in the show's tapings, so she didn't get to be on the show very many times. Having 2 of her 4 episodes feature special guest stars didn't help matters, either.

Kathy Greenwood was great. It's just when you have to be in the same game as Wayne, Colin, and Ryan you aren't going to be as funny as them by defaut.

From the page:

Very much subject to a Broken Base: good luck finding any clips on Youtube whose comments don't consist entirely of furious fans of the British and American incarnations arguing about which one is best.

I've watched more than my share of videos and I have yet to see such a comment thread.

I've seen a few, but it's not too bad.
