Office Drafts & Pokéjobs

It's never too late to start a fantasy draft. Or to make a career change.

I think my humour sense is broken. I only uttered one vague chuckle and that was at the poke-skit...

It's that or the show is really starting to lack in funnies. Either or, I guess.

aww poor magnemite
and it's true pokemon trainers don't have many benefits.

Well... someone's been mistreating that little lump of metal...

I want to know how that bisons and oranges game works though.

lol 158 when did that happen.

Love this show!

"Who's throwing pokeballs?"

:P

Pokemon skit was the winner here. Also...that girl was SMOKIN' hot.

My favorite part was the throwback to the Flying Circus. At least that's what it looked like.

You know, I'm enjoying the show, but I actually like your shorter sketches better. The "Angry Matts" was my favorite, and I think "Poke-Job" could have been shortened a little. I like the show though! Still funny!

The treatment of that strategy guide for Pokemon Yellow was utterly appalling.

I don't think I've ever been so mortified by the treatment of a book.

Poor Magnemite, long since he's been in for a anti-rust therapy.

Liked the little magnet shrug at the end.
Keep truckin' beard guy.

Not the best. The last line was good and the magnemite was well animated which made it slightly amusing in its actions... but otherwise quite a dull episode. And the first sketch had a couple of chuckles but didn't think the acting was very good there. However plus points for the cute girl; aagh, my one weakness...

Thank god i was not the only one that noticed that >.>

Btw what was spoofed in the short skit? angry birds?

Not their best episode in my opinion(and yes a girl asking if she looks fat is a trap).

I agree with this, if that had happened to my crystal one, well it doesnt bear thinking about.

OT: the pokemon sketch was pretty good, I think the style should be short and sharp personally. Some of these sketches drag on I feel,

maybe i just didnt get anything here, i dont now nothing bout basketball or pokemon ( Pac-Man its pronounced Pac-Man.) so i cant even say if it was good.

Loved the Angry Birds joke (assuming that's what it was), also as already said, Pokeskit was fuckin' balling.

The boss guy just stealing the fifty bucks also made me laugh.

Well...

Not as funny as previous ones... Still I'll keep watching.

Wow,that

To be honest,it was the first thing I noticed.That may be rather sad.But god she was hot.Costume helped.A lot.

Loved the pokemon skit.The show does always seem to have one stronger skit,with the others not being quite as good.Then again,I did like the basketball one too,it just wasn't as good as the pokemon scene.That may be because of Lyra.

Maybe

My only problem is that with people in cosplay it is even harder to guess the age of that person.
She really does look good but is she is underaged(with that i mean younger then 18) it might be more creepy then a sad feeling.

I wasn't feeling it this week guys, sorry.

Me and my bro thought it was spoofing the banana bomb from worms: armageddon. The sound he makes was spot on =D

No kidding. I was like "Stop trying to be funny guys, show the girl again". :D

And the name of the short skit is "Angry Matts" in the credits. :)

i like how he walked away with the 50 dollars.

good show guys

How do you guys do this, your show isn't all that great, but it's good enough to keep me coming back for more.

Your show isn't very funny but I think you just need time to evolve, for example, I think you're trying way too hard to be funny but at least you guys have your heart in the show, you can tell by the AMAZING sets you guys produce. I think you should work on the scripts a little more, your problem is you all great at punchlines, but you try way too hard to make every line the punch line (intentional or otherwise) and it kind of kills the experience.

Set up a situation, make it feel real, then add some parody and a punch line, you only need one punchline to make a successful video. Just remember the build up to the punch line can be more entertaining than the punchline it's self.

Try to be subtle with the build up(something I've noticed you're not very good at.) People are more likely to laugh if they care about the characters all your characters are just empty shells, this can be fixed simply by giving them a name, one people are going to remember or randomly adding insignificant backstory like "I think your distaste in women stem from that one time you went to the park and that girl kept looking at you, you thought she was hitting on you and so you walked up to her, quite nonchalant and tried picking her up but in reality she was looking at you because she just hated your indecent and rather see-through fishnet shirt." It's completely unnecessary to the overall skit but it gives the character depth and by giving a character depth people care more about your characters and if they care about your characters they're more likely going to laugh at the punchline.

If uberfriendship have the time, watch some LoadingReadyRun not just to enjoy it but to study it, they have some of the most well written, funniest smartest comedy on the internet and I think they're a fantastic guide on 'how to make comedy'.

I hope you guys read this and put it in to consideration as this is purely constructive criticism because I'd really like to see you guys grow as a group, you all have such incredible potential and I hope that in time you become better and people begin to appreciate you more.

is that the SKIfree Abominable snowman on her monitor???

Nice use of CG!

I don't know how you people complaining about how this wasn't funny. I thought it was a well put together episode, and I spent a lot of time laughing at the entire skit.

This passes as humor around here? I think the standard is set much higher by Zero Punctuation. It really annoys me how funny people think these are when you can find better humor anywhere. What kills it is the over acting. None of these actors have any natural screen presence and come across as very self conscious. Just because they reference games and are pandering to nerds, doesn't make the jokes funny at all. The reason these things don't get better is because people keep kissing its ass in the comments section so the creators aren't held to a higher standard.

The non-sequitur made me do a "WTF?" But when he split and blew the house to bits, I laughed out half-chewed gummi bears. Great, now I need a napkin :P

First half wasn't funny. Maybe because I don't follow basketball. Soon picked up when I saw that girl! The pokemon part was brilliant.

It's A Trap D: Also...whose Ratata?

Mr.Pandah:
... Also...that girl was SMOKIN' hot.

Gah. You ninja.

I wish she'd give me a pokejob hug...

.....What?
