Whoever thought up that beet joke is brilliant, and Paul's delivery was spot on.

Nerf guns arms races can indeed become dangerous, and expensive. My friends and I have had to put a cap of 6 darts in place and a rule that we can't buy any replacement darts. It makes planning an ambush much more interesting. Usually it involves setting up outside someone's bathroom. That look of shock is priceless.

I wonder if the crew has a checklist, so that each time there is a new cHUSTLE, they have a different game console's controllers in shot.

I can't wait for the episode with the Master System controllers.

I thought it was clever that they called him filler and then didn't include him anywhere in this episode (Borington reference notwithstanding).

Good job, people!

Hustle videos are your greatest ever. I spent most of last week watching all of season 1. Felt like watching a movie.

I know I gush over all you guys videos... but this was... this was just exceptional. I actually laughed outloud. Especially at...

"Jer's basically filler anyway..." NO HE'S NOT JER IS AWESOME. :x

Creepy lil' reaper plushie, staring at Graham... staring into his soul.

*Graham, whimpering in pain* Oh it's touching my face.

I love James' little reaction when Matt says the gun will "mate" him. He just cocks his head a little bit. It's perfect.

Check out this beet...while the DJ revolves it. Oh god, I lost it completely when he picked it up and turned it over in Graham's hand. Paul's execution here was so perfect. SO PERFECT. I love you guys.

Love this video. Love it. I love cHustle! :D

I'd buy one outright. I loved Jane's stories about the spirit of Halloween.

Hey, that was pretty good! Not as coherent as some others, but I liked all the disparate parts. As always, any Nerf reference is awesome!

Also, it should be noted Tim is carrying just a small portion of his arsenal in that shot.

CommodoreHUSTLE episodes always make me giggle. The Nerf war was awesome. Though, poor Tim ;_;

Agreed, season 1 would work great as a feature length film...

Not to imply that I think it needs anything special, I'm just saying that I personally think it would be great to see season one all smushed together into a 2 hour movie or so.

At least, I hope there is going to be a 'continous play' function on the season 1 DVD.

Dartageddon is indeed the last resort weapon. I believe you can even call it a DMD(Dart of Mass Destruction)


Also scene: Graham sitting in a room hugging his knees rocking back and forth. "Cant sleep dolls will get me, cant sleep dolls will get me..." Camera pulls back to reveal the room is filled with dolls lining the walls all angled to stare directly at Graham.

This was an exceptionally good cHustle and a great LRR video overall. That beet joke had me in stitches, along with the creepy doll and Sir James von Landlord. Very nice job!

Commissioned? Isn't he your brother? I mean, if my brother wanted a drawing, as much as we don't get along, I wouldn't charge.

I think you should have asked for a discount, at least.

I, as well, would like a CreepyDoll(tm). He can wear my glasses while I sleep and stare longingly at my immobile form, illuminated by the green glow of my alarm clock.

So was Graham mentioning the Mythbusters making rack of rocket propelled arrows a Chekov's Gun or was it an accidental reference? Either way it was a hilarious video.

I don't know that it technically qualifies as a Chekov's Gun, but yes it was intentional. It's meant to be subtly inferred that my mentioning it is what gave Paul the idea.

Or at least the inspiration for Dartageddon, the idea would be when he thought of how to resolve the Nerf arms race, which is much later in the video.
