But here we have a perplexing release decision. Before the CW reboot, before the US version, before the televised UK version, there was the radio version of Whose Line is it Anyway? Of which there was only one series, which consisted of six episodes.
This CD release is a set of two discs, on which are... FOUR of those episodes.
Why not make it a three CD set with six, ALL of the episodes of the entire run? It's not as if those remaining two are lost to the ages - all six are available as downloads on iTunes - and as far as I can figure there isn't anything particularly wrong with the other two episodes. I will admit that four episodes available as legitimately burnt audio CDs is better than no episodes available as legitimately burnt audio CDs, but it is the mildly annoying tease that this CD set is just that smidgen away from being complete that loses this product its fifth star.
(If you're wondering why the two absent episodes matter if they're easily available as downloads, well, it can be nice to have a physical thing as a collector's item, can't it?)
on THE UPSIDE though, there is something that I really do appreciate about this collection. Whereas most audio CDs of half-hour radio programs (I'm thinking of the American ones, anyway) separate the episodes by one track each - for example, the first CD track is the entirety of the first episode, and the second track is the entirety of the second episode - this one does the listener the favor of giving each segment its own track! So the first track would be the introductions, the second Authors, the third Wrong Theme Tune or Rap or Genre Options or whatnot and so on. So it is nice to know that this wasn't just hastily thrown together, and it does help to make up for missing out on The Fish Rap and Stephen Fry's breakfast cereal advertisement.
Oh, and the audio quality's really quite good too.
