Is anyone else going to admit to watching this show? I have to say it is addictive - and shows what you can do even if you don't have a budget.

It was better when they spent a bit of time discussing the day's news - with some wonderfully irreverent opinions. I don't watch it so often lately. But it's still a great concept.

I've been using the transit system for four years, and I have to say that the ride has never ever been as boring as watching Train 48 at it's best.

I like the concept too, but the two times I watched it weren't great. The first time was nominally interesting, and the second time was so bad I "walked out" - by turning the tv off. The acting is pretty marginal too, if you ask me.

However, I do realize it's improv, and likely I didn't give it enough of a chance.

Rick Green was a guest a few weeks ago as an accountant sent to give a warning from a gangster. He was great!

Not a single mention in the media about the two nude male streakers on Monday's show. Now if it were one of the women, it'd make the headlines and get this cheap show some attention.

I was just flipping through and saw some of this. I didn't see any nudity.

This is one of those rare occasions where I agree with you. What a yawn ... and I usually like improv.
