Anyone notice Bethany said HR, which means Human Resources, even though they are dogs?

...I'm really starting to miss Mr. Yee, he was one of the more unique and funnier characters.

I imagine you guys used this episode to characterize the new lawyer guy, and that's fine, but unless this problem is somehow going to come back later on and is somehow relevant to the ongoing storyline, why was this episode necessary? I only say this because the story seemed to finally be taking off with the Russians properly introduced, who will likely have the best material and funniest jokes, only for us to take a step back for more build up.

I'd imagine it would've been great if this episode was used to tie in a problem later on, such as... his rant on the call was recorded and put up on youtube Mel Gibson style and his angry threat was used for the butt of several hundred jokes, his words chopped up into small clips to make funny videos, many if not all of their distributors bailing out on them with their reputation ruined. This would force the staff to rely completely on the new Russian staff to keep their company alive.

The reason I liked the past episodes of this season is because they seemed to contribute to the series as a whole, such as Bob's flashback. Even though the flashback felt sort of forced, its ending was hysterical and gave Mr. Yee a great backstory and explanation to his weirdness.

Hehe, bloody good point... although they'd probably need to explain DR somehow, unless they actually said "Dog Resources"...

Whoa! When did this show stop barking and start biting?!

Gary is a chihuahua? I thought he was like a dwarfed doberman or something.

Good episode, definitively getting better this season.

Classic awesomeness!!!

The Les Grossman-esque outrage was funny, but died out quickly. Loved the ending though...

PMCervantes8994:
Anyone else get a... I think his name was Les Grossman(the producer in Tropic Thunder) vibe from Steve? His rant sounded eerily similar in some parts...

Yeah, if you haven't been told already that was pretty much a parody/take of Les Grossman's rant. "Scorched-Motherfucking-Earth" finally let me realize it.

HT_Black:
Hang on...Gary referenced Gamepunx Magazine? Does that mean Stolen Pixels and Game Dogs share a universe? And going from there, Stoeln Pixels once referenced Zero Punctuation...so is Yahtzee a critic inside a webcomic that exists as a column on the back of a fictional magazine? Or does he simply exist on the same plane as us, alongside Stolen Pixels; but if that's the case, how can Gary be aware of Gamepunx's existence...?

....I wonder what a dog version of Yahtzee would look like.

As people have pointed out, that was too close to Tropic Thunder for my liking. Especially the "i'm talking scorched earth mother fucker" part.

My ears are bleeding...
I agree with other viewers that using some nice bleeping effects could've been funnier and less offensive to everyone.

anger management much??

He sure said the word 'fuck' a lot of times. Good episode I think..

F***ing intense dude Steve has probelms don't let him call me

Lyri:
So I can totally here escapist office background noises in my headphones under this, or is it intentional?

Intentional. And its not Escapist office noise, its added in post. :)

NOBODY BLEEPS THE STEVE! I would have but he would have sued me back to the stone ages.

Urgh! Its people like that who make, "Honey" and "Sweety" sound condescending. It drives me nuts; People from the South actually say that. Well, they say that and actually mean "Person I adore," not "Person I'm patronizing."

Suffice to say, I wouldn't mind if by the end of the season, Steve got what's coming to him.

He's a Yorkie.

Hey, guess what sucks?
GAME DOGS SUCKS!
Honestly, the new season is based solely around random outbursts of profanity and offensive jokes. That's not what humor is.

I smiled throughout. an alright episode.

Hound Resources?

And what do you have to bring to the table?

... the hell was that? I like this series, guys. The first season was pretty good, just not funny, and so far the second season has been pretty good and progressively funnier. This episode was ... annoying. Just annoying. I haven't lost any faith in Game Dogs, because I know you're still trying out different things. But this, in my opinion, was a thing that didn't work and should probably never be done again. I saw no jokes to speak of. I saw no point to the episode and nowhere for it to go in future episodes. The only thing I saw was a bunch of boring, flat characters (they definitely weren't that flat in the first season) whining about some stupid troll, and then some guy I don't know anything about interrupts them to yell `fuck' at a blackberry over and over and over again. No charm, no humor, nothing interesting at all. Try again.

Yikes. Um, not a fan.

Finally a good episode front to back... I was beginning to wonder...

Roll over for me! Good dog!

I figured out the answer to the question of what Steve dropped if Gary was dropping H-bombs: The Doctor Device!

That's what you call an orbital strike.

I like it, I LIKE IT!

Why do they keep making these? It hurts, please stop. Just let me die.

Because people find it funny? I for one was rollin through nearly the entire episode.

Who are those characters in that snowglobe? They look so familiar...

Now that is what i call marketing! Im calling steve the next time i want something done.

is that a cow shaped dildo in Roger's desk?

Tetranitrophenol:

I don't think so.............why would Roger use a dildo?? Unless he comes out a admits he's a homosexual I don't think he'll need a dildo.

It could be a dog crew toy instead.

OUCH I'd ov hated to be at the on other end of the line

I'm pretty sure that's what we in Canada like to call, A FUCKING WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! I think that operator is going to be scarred for life by that though...
