Episode 6 - The Day The Lan Center Stood Still
Posted 17 April 2010 - 12:31 AM
I enjoyed the episode. Waiting until I re-watch it tomorrow (while sober) before I post anything more about it.
Makes sense i watched closer and saw he didn't shoot it, at least he isn't using an ak47 with a red dot lol.

For some reason they start getting away with rampant vandalism that engulfs entire streets? Doesnt the fact that they are breaking the law because its the only way they can have fun without games kind of disprove the very last episodes entire point where they talked about how playing video games doesn't make people act crazy in real life? Thats the fastest I've ever seen any show contradict itself, I mean... the very next episode? Anyways...
I've rewatched the entire webseries very recently and I have to say, I really miss Anatasia or an Anastasia type character in the show. She created all these fun cute moments with Jeremy, and also a lot of hilarious awkward ones like when he was doing his "WHOS GOT THE BALLS!" dance and she walks in, or when he asks her "So... you... youlike bawls? OH, no.... no not like that...". Those were some of my favourite moments. Plus she caused tension between Jeremy and Doug that added conflict to the show etc.
I mean October is cool and all but lately she just feels like a girl for the sake of having a girl in the show. She doesn't really add much to it, or interact with the characters in a meaningful way. In this episode she was the only one who could have the idea of not playing games out of the main cast, but that could have just as easily been accomplished by random extra #3 in the background who was sympathetic to Doug's plight. Shes not 'seeing' anyone, theres no 'will they wont they' exciting cliffhangery type stuff... maybe the finale will be her telling Jeremy how she feels or something but for now she seems kind of tacked on, like hey look we have a girl gamer isnt that CRAZY. She needs to at least have a plotline in an episode, aside from the "THATS WHAT YOU GET STEVE YOU FUCKING NINJA!" thing, which was awesome an made a great remix but there needs to be more.
Theres my very long thoughts and criticisms no one will bother to respond to/read. I'm pretty sure I have a point somewhere in there but at the end of the day I guess I'll just keep watching the show because I loved the web series so much and the tv series captures some of that magic that I've missed so much.

In response to the person above me. Stop comparing it to the webseries jeez. Seriously get over it. Also there's a million comedy series' that has a "will they won't they" thing going on and it's unbelievably boring. So I'm glad there's the element of that without it taking over every bloody episode.

Its really standing out how much of a different direction the TV show is taking. It actually feels like someone else is directing it instead of Geoff doing it. Another thing I want to mention is how the show feels so compact and not being able to go outside the box in order to be creative.
Anyhow, the episode wasn't that great... not much of a plot, not a lot of funny moments, 5.5/10. Its a good thing that the TV series isn't replacing the real Pure Pwnage which is episode 19.
What I did like were, the intro where Kyle introduces what happened, it shows that Kyle has a really cinematic view on things... and then Jeremy's "like" thing going on... that's good old Jeremy... and also the SWAT on Doug... very funny.

I laughed at a couple points, but what was bad was just so overwhelmingly more bad than what was good...
edit: agree with taerdin, October's character is rather under developed as well, her role is very....eh.

Oh, and the "VSUCK" reference was pretty awesome.

Because that would be boring. Also: gamers + not being able to play games = conflict.
I agree that it started a bit slow, but I think it definitely cam back with a strong ending. This one ranks right under 3 for me. Only 2 left.

And it wasn't showing that gamers are socially retarded, I think it was just showing that becauase so many video games involve violence, that's the best thing they know. And seriously, how fun is basketball for a gamer anyway lol. I'd definitely have more fun doing the things they were doing.
Good stuff guys, keep it up.
