Thought it was very funny,

Though I didn't really catch that he was supposed to be stabbing him in the back. Thought he was just trying soothe him before he broke his neck or something.

I am very fond of this video, but I don't remember which one is Kane and which one is Crowthorne. Either way, I do like how philosophical the dude is and how bloodthirsty the female is.

To paraphrase Morgan from earlier today: "Men and women are equally screwed up."

Also? Very sneaky of you to pimp out the video to all 1500+ people watching Desert Bus.

I hope they don't kill everyone that way, it would make for a very inefficient bodycount...

Very nice. Thankfully, in the world of LRR, "sequel" and "crap" are most definately not synonymous. HOllywood could learn from you guys.

I'm guessing this mission won't show up in the next PR presentation.

I think this is my favorite Alex performance, though.

Excellent acting by everyone! Even the soon-to-be-dead-guy. Funny video all around but I'm too busy watching Desert Bus to watch it more than once.

These characters are the best, though I think they were just that much funnier with the old man foil. Fantastic nonetheless. Especially so for being done in the pre-Desert-Bus crunch.

Speaking of which, whoever left their phone on should be punched in the dick on the DB feed.

I'm actually mildly surprised a video went up today considering Desert Bus (which, by the way, has been fun to watch thus far).

Either way, great vid, I'm happy to see these characters making another appearance. I approve.

Oh hand spades, how deadly you truly can be.

Apparently, that is one mercenary who isn't very good at "Knifey-Spoony"

As far back as the season opener, I had a feeling that we'd be seeing a lot more of these sequel videos. Not that I don't appreciate it as a LRR fan, but would these videos be just as funny for new viewers?

I'm not feeling this one. The first MS video worked because they had a straight-man to work off of, and a logical progression of plot. This one is just one joke (soothing a potential victim), stretched out for three minutes. Though because Desert Bus is going on, it makes sense that you'd want to do a light video, with one location, one scene, and three characters. Plus, you all still have lives outside of LRR. The only thing missing is the funny.

I found this funny. I especially lol'd at the end, where Alex kills Raymond with an e-tool.

Interesting. Not bad, nice location and lighting effects. However, I thought there could have been more actual fighting. If you need any help with that, you could ask me. I've choreographed several fight scenes myself. :)
