Williams and Osbournes

Trust Us With Your Life, Season 1, Episode 1 \ Trust Us With Your Life, Season 1, Episode 2 This is the latest improv show on television. What do you think? *** Overall, I think the show is entertaining enough. I'm curious to how the reception from the general public will go. My own thoughts as an improviser is that the structure of the show seems fairly rigid. Each player is proscribed their exact roles before they start their scenes. Essentially each of these games is a short form that while completely improvised by the actors has been considered before choosing been planned for by production. I remember when I first saw Whose Line Is It Anyway, I always felt that the play was stiff. That is I could feel that the the players had to hold in position for the cameras have to do the least work. I laughed a lot when I watched it, but I could feel their feet were, with some exceptions, stuck in place. More later.
