Episode 4 - Rock On
Posted 03 April 2010 - 09:58 PM
Episode 2 was orgasmic.
Episode 3 was multi-orgasmic.
Episode 4 I did not like. There were even points in the first half where I was like "im bored... i don't really want to watch this". The picture with a serious faced Doug pretty much kissing Jeremy was awkard, and then they zoomed out and it was hilarious how he was crouched up there... but not funny enough to get rid of the awkwardness.
Maybe its just because I'm not a music fan, or maybe cuz I've seen this "band mockumentary" thing done a billion times before. This is by far my favorite show on TV right now, hopefully next episode will get back on track.

it wasn't great. no big deal. it'll bounce back. for me it brought teh funneh enough for me to mildly enjoy it. it wasn't as epic as the first 3 but meh, that's tv. sometimes it's good. sometimes it's not.
half of the webseries was boring as fuck and those episodes were like 40+ minutes a piece at times.
as i have said before in other posts.
some of you people need to get a tube of vagisil and go clear the sand out of your vagina's
bunch of fucking whiney ass bitches on this forum

Something made specificly for the show, or some third party thing that I haven't seen, or is it actually an official game that I missed?

It's like watching a new drama. Say the first 8 episodes fully grab your interest and then episode 9 doesn't quite satisfy as much as the previous. To then come out with "OMG this show has forgotten it's roots. Character X spoke 5 decibels louder and at a rate of 3.3 words a second instead of the previous 2.9 and therefore has COMPLETELY LOST ALL CREDABILITY!" is a bit silly me thinks.
Your allowed to not like an episode. Your allowed to criticise an episode. But please fuck off if you think they owe you 20 minutes of your life for not tickling your balls in the right manner.

Kyle, Doug, Jeremy, and October are just perfect together. It's good that the show's staying close to that formula.

I would hate for this to be the first show someone watches of Pure Pwnage, it didn't do the show justice.

TBH, I prefer them doing "fillers" rather than a show with a storyline... It's very difficult being funny while writting a storyline for a show about video games... this is shown to be true clearly on the webseries: once they started to get more into "story mode" from ~episode 11 and after, the show became less funny, imo. I enjloyed the episodes from season 1 a lot more than I did those of season 2. It's hard to be funny and serious at the same time in order to make a story-line work... cause you need to be serious about a story if you want it to be good.
What I would REALLY want them to do, is to have a solid/cool/fun story-line with fillers here and there... and I think that's what they'll do. I predict that the next episode will add more to the story-line. If not, then so what, as long as it's funny I'll keep on watching.

Guys, this is a comedy tv series, not something like a drama series which is always going to have a storyline. To call it the "Worst thing you have watched on TV" is a bit much dont you think?
Nice dude, you summed it up pretty well.. in 2 sentences! pp_smiley7.gif
Uhhh..............what he said
I thought it was funny, not amazing, but not horrible like most of you guys are making it out to be

What was so cringe worthy about "Tilt your Guitar"? Unless you get awkward about people.. Singing.. Which some people do which isn't a fault of what they are watching its more the awkwardness of the person watching.
People dreamed of Pure Pwnage on a weekly basis when it was still every couple of months with the web series. To be a weekly TV show, to be a TV show at all, unfortunately for some this is how its gotta be really. Old PP worked in its quarterly (or so) format but it needed a different energy and pace and style for TV and that what its done. Following the Web series for so long like most of us have of course this new PP is going to take us for a bit of a whirl but I'm sure anyone who has checked out Showcase for the show and not watched the web series has no problem with it. I still find it epic that Geoff and Jarrett and the crew have a freakin' TV show. I'm sure they are reading all the criticism and maybe they can make some changes for Season 2 (if there's gonna be a second TV series, I have no idea) but a lot still seem to be enjoying what they are putting out so. 4 more episodes to balance out the series into something great, and it hasn't been THAT BAD so far anyway.

Part of the problem is that none of the characters are believable in this episode. It also felt completely uninspired. Geoff: please go back and watch the earliest episodes of the pure pwnage web series, regain your inspiration and realize the things that made the show a success in the first place.

and i've found that whenever people mix comedy with music, it never turns out funny or interesting.

You realise Troy(T-Bag) died in a car accident some time ago. Basically you just said his death licks your balls, congrats you fail.
Oh and I enjoyed this episode, but I do have to say the old PP feeling is gone and I really do miss it. It used to just be a show that was made for fun and so everyone acted natural. Now it's for money, and I don't blame them, I just misstheold style of acting and the old humor.

This episode would be good as a "bonus episode" once the season finishes.
Posted 04 April 2010 - 04:29 AM
I laughed so had in this ep.
I've been a fan of the show since the beginning, and as much as I miss the webisodes, I think seeing it on TV is still very awesome.
Don't be a hater.
U guise is 2 surius!
I want the photos from their photo shoots!! Everyone looked great.
Change is good. Classic stuff is good too. Web Episode 19 is coming, so just let the TV Show go its own way. We're not the only ones they're trying to appeal to.

So let me say I understand what you're doing. Pure Pwnage is a satire. A satire about gaming. Gaming is a lifestyle, so you must also occasionally satirize life. And if anything affects gaming, it should also be satirized. In this case, you satirize music-based games. And, as a result, you satirize music as well. Which is why there were so many "obscure" references to music culture (which are not that obscure to people who, in their curiosity, may have explored some of the annals of rock history and the music from it). Gaming is still at its core. But you also have to brush on the topics that affect or have been affected by gaming. Furthermore, because there is such a wide array of players of these games, it's natural to satirize each demographic.
Not everyone will like every episode. I didn't like episode three very much. But episode four was redeeming to me, because I could appreciate the humor (both dry and blunt). And this is ironic, because I get the feeling a bunch of the people who hated this episode will find redeeming qualities in the fifth episode.
So don't let the criticism for this episode affect the way you approach the show. You can't please everyone, much less everyone all the time.
And there are people who think the show is actually going in the right direction. I must admit, I was skeptical after season two of the Internet series (during which I started finding myself generally disappointed with the show's direction). But the TV show has actually regained my interest.
Thanks. Keep doing what you're doing.
