Great show I can't believe it has actually got better, I thought it was probably a one off season when it started.

Great show. I have been listening to Q's podcast with Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanaghan (from Comic book men) for several years.

More recently I have also been listening to the WhatSayYou podcast which is Q and Sal.

http://www.whatsayyoupodcast.com/

If you want to listen to a hilarious and absurd story listen to Episode 19 - I Have Your Pants.

Can you subscribe through Downcast or iTunes?



Edit: nevermind. Figured it out. Can't wait for the drive home. Thanks for the tip about the podcast!

Looking forward to this, http://www.trutv.com/shows/jokers-wild/index.html hopefully they can manage to string at least 3 new episodes in a row with this one.

I am a huge fan of Impractical Jokers (and I listen to Q and Sals podcast) but I wonder if they can entertain me with sketch comedy??

The first one wasn't too bad, but the second was just awful. I ffd thru the bank after a minute (was clear they would all get shot) then the excruciating kid interview just a few seconds till I reached for the ffd button, after the lame stamp collection bit, deleted never to record again.

Thank God that the new season of Impractical Jokers is still funny. They should stick with that...

It's actually Murray, but I agree that was really funny.

I also died at the Jaden Smith tattoo as a punishment for Sal.

Another great one last night, I can't believe they made him do that at bingo, people at those places don't put up with others crap.

In Tivo guide has a new episode (Rock Bottom) listed as repeat, Titantv and others have a repeat listed and no mention of Rock Bottom. The last few episodes have shown up as repeats on their first airing, so you SP users might want to check and see if being saved.

Thanks, I'll check when I get home. I think the cruise one was the finale so if this is new I am sure it is just a clip show.

I still love the show!

I had to record Car Sick the night the cruise one aired because Tivo guide said it was repeat when it originally aired. Also the first airing of the punishment special ep was listed as hour long and recorded as so was only 1/2 hour. I just looked at guide on another Tivo oddly it shows Rock bottom airing at 9PM the other has it at 10PM??

I like Q the most (I listen to him on several podcasts regularly) but if I were a betting man I might put my money on Murr, although his fear of jumping out of the plane, if it was height based may come back to bite him.

I still love this show. No other show makes me laugh more.

I was going to add I bet Q is the only one who would go all the way. I was worried about Mandell having anything to do with it, he didn't ruin it at all.

I didn't *love* the live punishment episode, but it was pretty good. Hopefully it did help to raise some awareness to this awesome show though - and keeps it on the air a few more years.

My wife loves this show.

I think that this, like another show on the same channel, The Carbonaro Effect, is mostly fake. Often times the people they interact with are laughing with them. They'll do outrageous things in front of a group and they'll seemingly go along with it. The only way I see this happening is if people have been told ahead of time that there's going to be a performance, to play along, and to try to keep a straight face.

I was watching it the other day, and one of them pisses his pants while in a room with other people. Then he proceeds to wander among them, nearly brushing into people. Sure, they move away from him, but they're kind of jovial about it. That's not normal human behavior.

Plus, I find that they fairly rarely have to blur faces.

Yeah I think at this point the people have to know more about what's going on. But the cool thing about this show is that it's not all about candid reactions of people but more about making the hosts do stupid things.

All that means is that those people didn't sign a release to have their faces shown.

I honestly don't think it is fake. If it was there would never be any reason to refuse to say or do anything.

I think, from what I have heard, they film a lot and what we see on the air is the best. Now, I think the whole scoring and punishment aspect is rigged and if I counted I would assume they all get punished an equal amount.

I have often wondered how many times they recognized especially as the show becomes more popular.

They could probably make an entire show or more just based on those encounters.

Didn't they say that the parents were in on it in that case.

For some reason I liked the punishment where they made Sal go into a huge Bingo parlor and had him yell bingo after every call. Those people did not seem to be in on it.

On the subject of punishment crowd reactions just re-watched the Joe and the bike club, that was great.
