Hey! Pwnage ep! Well done Kyle and Co.
Just some quick notes - didn't read all 24 pages about this ep yet, but what I did read leads me to think to the most part we are in agreement this ep is a 3. Still very very good.
Highlights: Great to see acknowledgment of Jeremy's pwnage celebrity status. We all know now that TV SUCKS ASS! Its things like what Kyle is doing that truely PWN!
More Agi and Jeremy! God, she is SOOO hot, and the spoofing of "pro gamers" takes it to a new level - leaving her to sleep alone, 'cause the bed is so "small" LOL. Omg omg - Agi alone in a small bed. Whew.
Saw some unhappy comments about the micro battle. If anything, Kyle is getting way better at it, IMO. The flashes of light and dark - for me - really added to it and had a professional, finished feeling to it.
Oh course, Jeremy makes it all look easy because he is a good actor. Kyle is the shit, no doubt, but Jeremy takes these great lines and makes us believe it.
Direction the show is taking:
I'm sure it has been noted before, but it is amazing the number of scenes, shots and lines that are evocative or wholy lifted from the movie "Taxi Driver".
At the end of Taxi Driver, there's a montage that takes place right after the big gun fight, in which our hero - in his last few dying moments while he is bleeding death - imagines what it would be like if he had lived and the heroic effects of his actions were revealed for all to see. Its a moment that defines the tight self-delusional world that leads to his seemingly incomprehensible actions in the viotent gun battle.
Sorry to drone on about that, but sometimes I wonder if Kyle is doing something similar. All of Jeremy's "micro abilities" may be in his mind. Same for Doug. Jeremy and Doug are addicted to games, and living in a delusional world. Not very funny stuff. But the way Kyle showcases it, it is a riot.
Dark humor is the best, but Jeremy and Doug may be headed for some sort of Taxi Driver event that will either destroy them and/or confront them with the reality that all their gaming "powers" and "training" are illusions.
Wow, heavy stuff. How Kyle would carry it off is beyond me, but I thought I'd mention it. And what would Jeremy do, without gaming? Have a life with Agi.
Loved the trip to neth-landers
Perhaps another trip somewhere, for more fan interuptions? Some revealing of the organization of the Master's enemies. Who are they? What do they want? Will Agi be made a student of the Master? Will Jeremy find interest in something other than gaming?
Also, I hope Kyle is keeping a "behind the scenes" log for the Dvd. We all want to know who is REALLY dating Agi, etc etc.
