Episode 5

One thing leads to another. Oh, and a planet blows up.

Watch Video

The ReBoot logo is everywhere. Does this actually take place in Mainframe?

Oh man I totally want to see the part when the Rebel actually start to attack their base thingy and oh the dud lazer was hilarious!

Yeah man, bangin' dudes is gross.

Great episode guys.

How come the actress playing Princess Leia is nameless both on the Facebook photo and in the episode credits?

Also, good performance by Tess.

Ahh, crap. I forgot to credit her, it's Stacey McGunnigle.

Thanks. I guess, it's easy to forget the hologram.

I was laughing all the way through, keep it up!

It's such a frelling relief to see some one else mention it :)
Yes it will be awesome if its just another game on the Mainframe, or even better the "NET"...

Well done. Fine acting. Nice props. Good effects.

I realize this is comedy and sometimes outrageous decisions are a useful tool. But...

1. If you found plans to attack the ship's shield generator by the Rebels, you would likely share that with your superiors. If the shield generators go down, the entire ship is at risk. It doesn't matter where you live on the ship. Your future is in jeopardy. Just sayin'.

2. If you get the opportunity to remotely control the body of hot blonde, the mandatory first step is "clothes off and dance around". Each male is pulled aside as a child and taught this lesson by their father. I know I was. (Of course back then, the more likely causes were voodoo, hypnosis or witchcraft.) If this teaching has been abandonned in the future, it is a sadder place.

First sentence I agree with.
1. Stop trying to apply logic. It has been proven logic never works XD
2. Ehm where would you ever get that idea from. Checks list of "what to do with a hot 'droid/blonde/etc" hmm yes clothes of dance around still first thing....

Wow, that episode was fantastic! Is this actually the first time that we see the ReBoot logo or has it been there before?

Man, I'm not going to touch the sexual/robo-human relations politics with a ten foot pole. That being said, "I also like dicks," was disgustingly perfect. The woman who plays Ellen has some serious acting chops.

Aw, the guy who was shot in the beginning grinned too much.
The rest was quite awesome, though, especially the awful, awful date. Very well acted. Too bad they fucked it up in the end; please don't just forget about this ending but actually reference it in the next episode or continue on from here, because this kind of awkwardness shouldn't be allowed to just... vanish. It needs to have some consequences. ^^

Still love it, still love the characters, always good for a laugh. All i can say is keep 'em coming.

That was actually really good, and I thought most of the episodes up to this point were just okay. Kind of a shame that comments (and I assume views) have basically tanked by this point. The Escapist really should give this billing over Moviebob, as this could easily die without enough exposure.

Uuuh...I laughed out loud with this one. Love how everytime they're up for a good plan they have to blabbermouth themselves out of it.

I really hope The Escapist doesn't kill this show. Pretty pleeeeeeeeease?

The acting keeps getting better. I loved it!
I was laughing out loud with the ending. Ah, guys.

Incoming Call: Dark Lord. This bit cracked me up, then they R/C'd L. Best episode so far.

Nice work. I will be LOLing at this through next week!

Well I have to say, I am genuinely enjoying this show! Look forward to more episodes.

why is this so good?

There is a possible simple explanation for this - the clothes are non-removable; they are a part of the android's skin.

Still good stuff.

Heh' that sad droid asking why you blew up his planet.

the beginning was just hilarious. giant laser and shoots a guy in the shoulder. brilliant. then incoming call from dark lord. that cracked me up even more.

I don't like this. Take it back.

I'm sorry. I don't know why I said all those hurtful things. Of course, there is a beautiful, anatomically correct body under those clothes. Only three degrees colder.

Too late, this has now been incorporated as official canon for the series! Have to keep things consistent somehow.

Btw, if you're looking for inconsistencies, have a look at 7:09

I looked, but didn't see a problem. Please elaborate.
EDIT: Spotted. See later post.

If it's somehow a color thing, then I have an excuse, being red/green colorblind. Her hand and face look to be slightly different shades. People have always been green to me, causing lots of "whut?!?!"s when discussing the Hulk or Green Lantern's abnormal skin. It looks normal to me. (Did you know that The Lakers play in yellow and PURPLE?!?!? I'm 43 and I found out last year for the first time.)

Anyone else think that the circle logo with the square(Two triangles) inside of it looks like the Guardian Symbol from Reboot?

You are the fourth person to mention it this thread.

Sorry, that was a little curt of me. Yes, that's the Reboot logo.

I couldn't spot the issue either

why does the princess what a scar like Zuko from Avatar?

D'oh. I see now. I totally missed it. LN9-K goes hand to chin with her right hand a 7:09. When the shot switches to Brad and in the following camera switch back, it is her left hand being removed. Android trickery if afoot!

You guys are doing this series very tongue-in-cheek for how real people would respond to the exceptional events in typical sci-fi (no, not syfy!) movies. It is comedy perfectly targetted to me. For this, I thank you.

DECK CREW EPISODE PITCH:
I would love to see a Deck Crew short where they are repairing the continuity drive on the ship. As a result the entire episode is filled with discontinuities like this hand switch here, or bits out of sequence, or different actors switching in/out. This idea has some big potential for hillarity. Mull it! (I'll require crediting and back end points.)

yup, that's it. The hand switch is something the brain doesn't really pick up on, I was glad to be able to cut those two takes together.
Re: episode idea, that's cool - Star Trek style tech problem that breaks the fourth wall.

2:33.... yes, I noticed. Sonic Screwdriver from Matt Smiths Doctor Who. As a massive Doctor Who fan I could hardly fail to notice that...
