Finally: Here’s Your First Look At The Return of Whose Line Is It Anyway? Premiering July 16th At 8PM on The CW
Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the cult improv show that stopped producing new episodes nearly a decade ago, is coming back to TV starting this July — and The CW has just released a first look at the (slightly) revamped series.
Starring WhoseLine? vets Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady, the revived show will be hosted by Aisha Tyler, best known as the voice of Lana on the FX show ‘Archer’, and feature a different special guest each week.
If this first clip is any indication, Stiles, Mochrie, and Brady have spent the last ten years in an improv concentration camp because they haven’t lost a single morsel of extemporaneous talent.
Whose Line Is It Anyway?Take 2 is set to premiere Tuesday, July 16th, at 8 PM ET.
Some people say that we can’t afford to help our kids through school by keeping student loan interest rates low. But right now, as I speak, the federal government offers far lower interest rates on loans, every single day–they just don’t do it for everyone. Right now, a big bank can get a loan through the Federal Reserve discount window at a rate of about 0.75%. But this summer a student who is trying to get a loan to go to college will pay almost 7%. In other words, the federal government is going to charge students interest rates that are nine times higher than the rates for the biggest banks–the same banks that destroyed millions of jobs and nearly broke this economy. That isn’t right. And that is why I’m introducing legislation today to give students the same deal that we give to the big banks.
This is the second novel of the MaddAddam Trilogy, the first being Oryx and Crake. I would not call it a sequel, since the events happen concurrent to those in Oryx and Crake. The awfully scary pigoons, otherwise known as nightmare fuel, make a reappearance. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of them. The final novel is due to come out this fall and I want it bad.
Where the first novel set up the “world”, through one characters narration, this one is told from two points of view from members of a eco-religious cult and is more about community and religion (with POV’s of acceptance and skepticism) rather than the science versus morals theme that dominated the first book.
Although there are intense things that happen, theres a special kind of humor laced throughout the story that leaves you believing that at least sarcasm and irony will never die.
The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear.
