Nice one, I enjoyed this. I particularly liked the 'reverse star power'. Awesome.

Now, that was pretty dang good, though, yeah, the stand-up parts were just too long, even if intentionally.

But the first Mr. Marston had me in stitches.

Do this again sometime.

I would not have gone with the stand-up but the rest
SPOT. ON.

For once, this is good.

It's a new SAGS episode
Let's go get it!
I loved that halo sketch
Also, nice jab with the shadowofthecollousisart comment. Perfect voice for it to.
Overall, these microsketchs were pretty good.
Oh no, star power...

Boy howdy! Heh heh heh

Crowd was misspelled.

Which was funny since its the educated gameer.

brilliant episode, i think it's one of my favorites

Countering your own antagonists. Well played. Distinctly reminds me of the comments following one of Lisa's Top Fives.

"oh starpower, guess i better get that, oh no, i have abandonment issues, why didnt daddy love me" I gotta admit i cracked up at that, probably going to hell for it too.... still being a "bad stand up" i found it hillarious

Loved everything except the stand-up 1 short. My favourite by far was Say Mr. Marston 1; That had me in stitches.
Keep the show like this, it's far better!

Best one yet. I loved it. Don't be afraid to do this style because you guys nailed it. Mr. Marsten part 1 was the best.

SextusMaximus:
This was honestly appalling; not to mention your scare techniques for preventing criticism, making people who do criticize the show looks like idiots.

Not Escapist quality at all in my opinion, but I guess if people are enjoying it, let them have it.

scare techniques? I think your way off dude. It just seemed to be a stereotype of commenters in general rather than commenters for this show in particular. Personally I think it's pretty good for the escapist I mean you make it sound like the escapist is like some sort of high class corporate website that has a panel of judges that make sure everything looks really really classy. From what I've seen since i've known this website the escapist seems pretty lax and pretty inviting to variety of content to suit different tastes.

I REALLY likeed that episode your best i rekon.

This was brilliant. I liked the length and the bite sized chunks, I think it was better than the usual :)

I can't say the gunshot WASN'T a reasonable response...

Best episode yet, well done guys. I found the other eps a bit patchy. This was good from start to finish. KEEP IT UP!

That was quite enjoyable. The "shorts" formula is what I wanted you to do since episode 1.

awful stand up is awful XD

good laughs around, did not know they had lego spartans :O

I think they created the sketch with scaring off bad comments in mind personally. I'm not saying that Escapist is some high and mighty corporate website either, I'm saying that this is something a 12 year old on YouTube could put together in a day with his friends and still do a better job... I'm saying this isn't Escapist quality. Hell, this isn't even GAMESPOT quality. Yeah, the site suits a variety of content, stuff like I hit it with my axe is a good example.. experimentation works sometimes, sometimes it doesn't - I personally think this is an example of an experiment not working.

Again, no disrespect to you or anyone who likes it, merely voicing my opinions.

This was a pretty good episode, I like the more rapid fire style of the shorts. Some were a bit lack luster, but you had good ones too *like the Red Dead skit*

I gotta say, this is the best episode yet. The shorter skits made for much more laugh opportunity, plus the focus of the humour was much more on actual games (which is good for a show about games... show).

My vote, keep this style!

I agree. This show is terrible. A bunch of ill conceived, inconsequential, unfunny nonsense - strewn together by pandering. It must be really difficult to spend 5 minutes figuring out how to shoe-horn pop-culture/video-game references into tired, predictable scenarios.

@ The fully grown adults who make this, and the fully grown adults who pay for this.
Do you laugh at this?

I will not miss this show when it is cancelled.

The presenter change comments sketch was very true to life, the comments on an episode of ITV's game-on on youtube were exactly like this...

Best skit this week was Mr.Marston.

Favourite episode so far. Not a huge fan of the poor stand up bit. But hey.

Awful video game stand-up #2 was not awful at all. I actually laughed out loud at it. That was some grade A comedy.

I read on your site that this Thursday is the season finale? That was kind of a short run.

standups a fail as usual, never seen any actualy funny (I'm blaming you GTAIV and my disinterest in watching such stuff on YT), only this one in czech about guy who has all sorts of connection cables because hes on a date.

the comic timing of this show is actually pretty good

Bring back BOOOOOOOBS!

Your shorts are the best part of all of your shows. Keep it up.
