The Amendment
August 15th, 2011

Friends, countrymen… lend me your clicks. I have come to you today to alert you to a pressing issue facing or nation: This week’s video!

Our video this week features our good friend Brad, who happened to have returned briefly from overseas. I believe he has once again returned to the Old World, but while he was here he did grace us with his appearance (and what a fine appearance it is!)

Since Graham is off gallivanting in England at the moment, I turned to Paul this week for a few words on the writing of this episode. Here’s what he had to say:

While not as splashy as the 1st Amendment or as controversial as the 2nd Amendment, you have to admit that a bunch of soldiers sleeping in your house, emptying your fridge, and having loud parties late into the night, would really suck. Graham initially wrote about half this script, but was having trouble figuring out where to go with it, so he brought it in to the office to show it to me. We liked the idea of Brad being confused about the meaning of “quartering” because it has the great wtf moment of the reporters all realizing how far over his head this politician is. Like any good politician, Brad does not waver, though, and quickly doubles down in an effort to dig up. I feel like if politicians are going to be corrupt and incompetent, the least they can do is be entertaining as well.

Unskippable this week features Dead Space 2. You can find that here.

Also, CheckPoint is up over at PATV. While you’re there, check out penny-Arcade’s sleek new site layout. It’s purdy.



  1. Graham is over here? England just became slightly more awesome.

  2. I hate to be that guy, but “ourgood”, “gere” and “england”. Just thought you should know.

  3. So Graham visits England and at the same time there are riots. Coincidence?
    I would buy him a pint if he was anywhere near me but I’m guessing he’ll be down South.
