Boy can Adam Green talk.

His intro and Q&A were probably longer than all the others combined, its like your looking at a man brimmed with ideas living off red-bull and speed to stay awake and get them all on paper and then stay with them till they are released.

I enjoyed the 3 episodes that were shown, coming at them having not seen anything about them before. The only draw back is the laugh track, which does sound horrendously fake and thereby patronising.

Whet my appetite to see all that have been done so far and hopeful it will come to a UK TV channel.

The over use of canned laughter totally spoils it for me. If they were less enthusiastic with it, I think it would be much better.

Looks like a good idea though.

I have watched a few episodes online and enjoyed it but for that laugh track.
Someone should offer a canned-laugh-free DVD for the UK market.
