Good to see how Russ truly spends all his time at the office :P

Also, Susan that is one sickeningly adorable kitten on the wall behind you.

I have to go grab everyone I know for the Bibleman show, brb.

yes Peggles is the biggest time waster! actually anything from PopCap XD

entertaining episode. if they are all like this i need to watch this show more often

I'm suprised no one said a MMO.

Bibleman? What?

What was with the random bible man bit in the credits? That show is so damn hilarious though.

*switch to Russ*
*stares off into distance*
Nice job russ, now we know why you are always on time with your stuff.

love how dramatic Susan gets when she talks about reality tv, if she one day realizes how boring office work is she could become an great actress.

Random argument man:

If an MMO is your timewaster then you wouldn't be doin this interview couse it consumes all the time and you would be jobless ;p

Great episode - but Bibleman? Wtf? XD

We are talking about the same office work, right?

This is Escapist office work! How can it possibly be boring!

They play with exercise balls, and play games, and have kittens that-

*throat gets slit*

This is the Escapist, a wildly successful two times Webby award winning magazine, i have a hard time imagining that they jump around on exercise balls and play games all day, especially since the staff members admit they have less time to game than they used too (back in the days), although the subject they work whit is fun and good times i don't think the work it self is that much fun.

It looks like everyone in the office works in one small room with some cubicles in the corner. Maybe you need a show that tours the offices. Also, Buzz Lightyear outside of Russ's window! Now I have to go make some friends and gather them for the Bibleman show.

ah i remember seeing that bibleman show mentioned on something ages ago but its still funny

cool episode, its always nice to know that once in a while the people we look up too have similar thoughts to ours, other times its a little worrying

Amazing episode! Susan: I know what you mean. I have fallen victim to this trap too!!

And hey napping with kittens is cute and fun!.

And Russ: I lol'd at the staring off into space

Greatest job in the world but, yes, still very much a job. The folks here are some of the funniest, most entertaining people I've ever met, but they also work incredibly hard.

That said, we do throw things at each other with a fair amount of frequency. Also, we eat a lot of candy.

Very funny. I loved Susan's answer to the superpower question.

I'm guessing none of the Escapist staff go to tvtropes.org to prevent entire days from being lost.

Fun episode. It's always cool to see the people that make the stuff you enjoy.

Then wyou must have some slow computers because I don't know where you find time to eat or sleep outside of the time it takes to load a new page.

Any contributions to the Wild Mass Guessing page?

(In regards to the Bibleman part)
I...I...I don't...I can...I can't quite...I...I don't...what?

They don't need to be hanging out on tvtropes, they are part of tvtropes:

I'm not sure what upsets me the most; the fact you guys snuck some "Bibleman" footage into your closing credits, the fact that there is indeed a show called "Bibleman", or the fact that Willie Aames actually resurrected his career with it.

Not to mention the even more upsetting fact that I know who Willie Aames is...

Woem:

Dammit never quote that site I want sleep yet :)

On topic loved the ways you guys burn time, I too fall victim to the staring into space

wtf was that bibleman thing about?!

Also loved the reactions to the questions, wish i worked at the Escapist :\

One of the questions was about super powers. "What exactly is Bibleman's power?" seems a more fitting question to ask.

Bibleman's power is unwillingly converting people to Christianity.

Ummm... Don't quote me, I'm only kidding.

You get time off? I'm definitely in the wrong business.

Well, Yahtzee is part of it, anyways. It's fun seeing what tvtropes has to say about the various series. If anybody has a few spare days laying around where you won't be missed, I recomend clicking on those links and also searching for some of the Escapist's other material.

For "Biggest time waster" nobody said: "Watching this video."

Wow... some of those questions were... special o_o

The Bible Man Show is the Greatist thing in the history of ever.

so, was this the last of the escapist show?, i haven't seen any new episodes for the last 3 weeks, at first i figured it was just bi-weekly, but now.

aw did y'all end this show? =(
