It was fun. I enjoyed Bill and Wayne's Song Style dance ( The Click.)  I enjoyed everything but Newsflash and Helping Hands.

Wayne going into the audience is always fun. I guess he's comfortable doing it because of his Let's Make A Deal job. And I also liked his preview of his Kinky Boots gig by putting on (kind of) the lady's boots.

 

The ED song with the entire cast during Scenes From A Hat was hysterical. It's fun seeing Aisha joining in.

I liked Bill Nye ok during Song Styles. It was fun seeing him dance. But I didn't enjoy him in Helping Hands. Well, I don't enjoy HH in general, but Nye kept pulling focus. He really wanted to do a drunk bit, too. Also, in the credits bit, he didn't know if he was supposed to be an animal or a scientist. 

 

I love Colin's extended, shaggy-dog jokes, like this one at the start of Weird Newscasters. "Doctors describe his condition as stable."

 

Newsflash was kind of boring and easy for Colin to guess. SFAH was ok.

 

Not the strongest ep, imo.

Bill Nye really wanted to play along, and I don't have a problem with that. He did pull focus in Helping Hands, but the whole premise of "shove weird stuff in Ryan's mouth" kind of demands it.

Different people have different tastes, including different senses of humor.  Perhaps those people who are always offering their friends "Five bucks if you eat this" find Helping Hands hilarious.  

 

I am not one of those people.
