Hey dont quit on us man! This was a great show. Whatever is holding you guys back, I wish you the best!

Wow, I'm not really sure what to say other than that I'm going to miss this show.

If it's the end of season 1, is there any chance of a DVD?

Separate the content from the outtakes (special features), and I think it would make an awesome addition to Physics curriculum everywhere. Slowing it down a bit and adding some explanation would be nice, but a teacher armed with a DVD could do that. Maybe dividing the episodes by Physics topic would also be helpful. Some of the episodes would work perfectly. I don't think much is done with drag, and the Jurassic Park 2 glass episode was pretty advanced too, but things are mostly just basic kinematics, dynamics, and energy there's definitely a teaching tool there.

Good luck guys! All the best!

what? that was sudden and unexpected. there better be another season. i find this show mesmerizing. it would be a sad loss.

I hope they get a Season 2. Please keep Reel Physics, Escapist.

Sorry to see you go. For not getting much warning I find the last episode title to be quite apt. :)

I hope you guys do get a shot at Season 2. :)

Tuesdays this summer will be less cool with no more Reel Physics. :-/ Here's hoping you get picked up for Season 2, either at Escapist or elsewhere, it was my favorite series here.

Also, you guys ever think of spinning Cheese Battle off into its own series? If the Escapist is willing to have a video series of nothing but Sterling and Yahtzee reading poetry, surely they'd go for Cheese Battle.

DON'T LEAVE MY REEL PHYSICS! I CAN CHANGE! I'LL BECOME A BETTER AUDIENCE! I'LL OPEN DOORS FOR YOU AND TAKE YOU TO MOVIES AND DINNERS! I CAN CHANNNNNNGE!

In all seriousness though... don't leave me... I'll be sad.

Please do let me know if you continue on your own on YouTube or something.

Well, this is the "nerd culture" in this decade. A show about physics in movies is axed. But a show with some redheaded, squeaky voiced semi prominent woman is renewed to ensure the sweaty 13-17 boys demographic stays.
And let`s not forget the "look what useless stuff you could buy" show on friday. Yeah, because all nerds are like apple fans, buying every crap to show the world how great they are.

Escapist, Reel Physics is the ONLY real nerd show you have, so get your s### together.

I wonder if video length has anything to do with it. These videos were long (which was great) but I'm guessing may have made them more costly to host? And if they don't get enough views then they can't justify the cost?

Maybe they should add an attractive young woman to the cast. It might up the view count. :P Either that or introduce some facet that is controversial and will rile people up.

I think I'll stop watching some shows that I thought were only mediocre compared to this one. At least then I'll feel like I'm voting for what I want to see kept around.

Just putting this out there: if Reel Physics isn't renewed and either ends completely or goes elsewhere, then I really have no reason to keep coming to this site anymore, aside from Jimquisition I suppose. But I can just show up every Monday for that one. I don't think there's really anything else that's good enough to warrant my frequent internet traffic.

I know i would love to see another season or five of reel physics, helps break up my Tuesdays. I've created this here petition to send to the escapist to let them know we loved it. lets see if we can get 500+ signatures! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/give-us-moar-reel-physics/

Noooo.

There are so few good shows on the Escapist... Doraleaous left, EC left, now only you and Jim are the shows I watch every week.

I never fully comprehended the math, but you guys were funny as hell and the outtakes were something fantastic - as was seeing that airdropping a tank like that is apparently survivable and even doable.

This is a bloody travesty! I don't understand 99.9% of the maths in this show but I still appreciate the intelligence and thought that goes into it.

I absolutely laughed my ass off this episode - you didn't even plan it to be the final yet it was above and beyond the best episode to date. Reel Physics has made me laugh more, and harder, these past 5 episodes than LRR has ever managed - and it's a sketch show!

Each week this show has consistently gotten better. You've added so many brilliant little comedic touches which - and I saw this with all due respect and love for the show - I never expected from what started out as a show with a couple of maths nerds.

Reel Physics really set the Escapist apart and kept me hooked when my interest had really waned for the site as a whole.

This news has really killed my week. Tuesday's was Reel Physics day. :(

I'd like to echo what others have said about "doing an Extra Credits". If the Escapist don't think there's an audience for it, well, they won't miss the format will they?

YouTube has proven with channels like Sci-Show that there's a biiiiiiiiiig audience for this sort of content.

EDIT: I'm really so upset about this. F = MA - thanks RP for finally helping me remember that, I was always terrible at physics at school. Shit, what fun junky science will I now tell my girlfriend over breakfast now RP is no more. She's still incredulous that a car can accelerate so fast on train tracks.

I hate to do a shameless self bump but i really would like for reel physics to stay here. Its only been a few minutes but we've only gotten 3 signatures so far...

I was wondering if someone was going to catch that. This episode was written weeks ago and it was ironic that this episode and its title just so happened to be our last one... how apropos. *sigh*

Again, thanks everyone for all of the fantastic feedback here on our last episode. Where were you all this whole time?? LOL!! Just kidding... I know we were getting a good number of views from what I was told... but it just wasn't as successful as they had hoped for I suppose. I really don't know much more than that myself gang. It was just as sudden an ending for me as it is for all of you in the audience. I am just grateful to the Escapist for ever taking a chance on us to begin with. Here's hoping for a season two down the line. Who knows...

JASON!!! We do want moar, let everyone know I've got a petition up to show we want a season 2! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/give-us-moar-reel-physics/

I've watched and enjoyed every one of these shows, I may not always have had a comment, but we need a Season 2!!

Escapist, what do we have to do to get this show renewed NOW???

deth2munkies:
There'd better be a goddamned season 2, this is the only good new show The Escapist has produced in over a year :(

If not, Youtube :D

I second this...

Come on Escapist, keep it going...

Hey Escapist! Season 2 is a MUST!

And if it doesn't happen, I'd like to take a sec to thank Jason and Colby for all the hard work they put into this show, and thanks for helping keep me entertained.

Good comment here... the video length actually worked in our favor. Our longest episodes were apparently some of the most popular overall. The Walking Dead, Indiana Jones, Avengers... those were some of the longer episodes that ended up being our most watched. I am sure some of that had to do with the topics as well, but apparently it wasn't a detriment that we covered a whole lot more information within those episodes.

Our show had two hosts which of course increases the cost a bit... plus our production quality and the production time was a little costlier than many of the other things out there on the net. I made this show like I would make an actual broadcast TV show... but on a shoestring budget comparatively. I always wanted the quality to be even higher but just couldn't manage the time or resources to do so. I was the director, producer, editor, graphic designer, post production specialist, copy writer, and public relations... Colby supplied all of the real content to the show regarding the calculations, a lot of the research, and an early portion of a script including the beginnings of comedy for me to build on. So it really was just us. On top of that, we both have families and full-time jobs with careers...

And here's a special tidbit for all of you interested... Colby recently moved 4 hours away from me to another state and it never affected the show one bit. That's some dedication for you right there. So guess what a surprise it was for us to hear about our final episode happening so quickly when he and I felt like we were really hitting our comedy/math groove. *sigh*

What it really boils down to... is cost versus return. It's just business everyone. I am a businessman at heart and I totally understand. Our comedy was a bit...*different*... and not for everyone... and our math/physics calculations were DEFINITELY not for everyone. Having said that, everyone going into this knew it was never going to be a smash hit but maybe have a long life as a niche show for the right kind of person. I guess there just wasn't enough of those people. But I sure am grateful for those of you who were. ;)

Thanks again gang. I hope I can shed enough light on this to help you all understand there was no political issues or problems with the show or some weird issue at the Escapist or their corporate overlords or anything. This was just business. Hopefully they can do a re-evaluation of this show later and decide whether they want to take another chance on it.

I don't get why anyone would cancel this show. It's entertaining, which is reason enough to keep it around, but more then that, Colby and Jason have such a blast making it....why would you ever stop people from doing something they obviously enjoy so much?

I enjoy the show, but I enjoy the blooper reals more usually. Just love seeing them have so much fun. Reminds me of my group of friends when I was younger.

Very sad:(

Go Go Physics people! Here is hoping for another season and it's too bad this one ended so abruptly.

Well damn... I really hope you get renewed for another season (or 8)

I'm guessing that this will be replaced by a new series featuring an irate British person...

And I choose to blame this on the Xbox One reveal. The timing is too suspicious despite it being after the video was filmed, edited and uploaded. MICROSOFT! This is one step too far! *shakes fist*

It's times like this I feel bad for being one of those people who just watches the video then leaves without leaving a comment or some sort of feedback :(

This news is pretty damn sad. I've really enjoyed Reel Physics, and it has been damn entertaining. I guess all i can do is hope that you'll get to make another season of the show.

I third this, lets show how many want more by signing here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/give-us-moar-reel-physics/

I had already heard the news because it was posted in the "What shows do you miss the most on the Escapist".
That was 2 days ago and I'm still upset. Really sorry to see you go, I hope the Escapist re-evaluates their decision. Although, sadly, I doubt it.

Even though the Escapist holds the rights to the name, that doesn't mean they won't allow you to continue a similar show elsewhere. The Escapist also controls the names of ENN and "Unskippable Let's Plays", but the Loading Ready Run Crew just asked nicely and have been making GPLP and Checkpoint since.

Its a real shame. The show was great and it should be picked up for a second season. There is no other place where movies are dissected like they are here. I always enjoy watching the show and seeing movies I have watched and disbelieved.

Kudos to you guys.

New episodes of Reel Physics appear every Tuesday, only on The Escapist.

Why do you lie to us like that, video description people?

an annoyed writer:
I hope there is a season 2 as well. Ever since it started I've been watching every episode since the series inception, and I've found it to be one of the most entertaining and informative shows here. It's one of the best new things here, and I really hope you guys can continue. Good luck guys.

Six seasons and a movie!

JenSeven:
Oi Escapist, you can't cancel Reel Physics, this show is reelly good!

Also, The Netherlands is nowhere near Iceland, so please don't get us confused.

I've watched and enjoyed every episode (I'm a sucker for puns and movie science), but apparently not many other people have. :(

I'm not suggesting anything but since you are the server admin... couldn't you theoretically push the view counter a little bit? For science!
...totally theoretical of course.

EXCELLENT stuff.

Dear reel physics:

continue cheese battle, put your faces on the screen with over the top emotions and exclamations, any time there's a joke or ponderous stuff going on pull a face out.

obviously the escapist community wants you to stay, because if i see one more bland show hosted by a brain-dead host i'm going to self destruct from critical existence failure.

I'm going to stay optimistic and assume there'll be a Season 2. Positive thinking and all that good stuff.

I didn't watch every episode, but I did like all the ones I did watch. Wish you both the best of luck.

I'm going to be seriously disappointed if you guys don't get picked up for another season, this show scratches my math/physics itch and hits all sorts of great humor in one package. It's one of my absolute favorite things here on The Escapist, cancelling the show would be a grave disservice I feel.

Also, Utah is no-where near Iceland, get your logistics straight, you guys are better than that.
