Graham wrote:I've seen some comments (elsewhere) like, "I thought this was supposed to be a satire of reality TV, but this looks real..."

I guess I take that as a compliment, but no, we never said that. It's a real show, it's just being made by people who actually care about other people.
There's no "asshole character", these are real people who we grew to care about. It's halfway to being a documentary show, under the auspices of reality TV... but it's still reality TV.

I encourage you to watch it, it's something special.


These were the exact thoughts which went through my head when watching it and left me feeling pretty torn...

On the plus side, I was thinking 'this looks like any other reality show' and then I thought: but its made by people with integrity who care about the subject matter, funded by people who are top of their field and generally seems actually REAL...which is unusual for reality TV ironically...

...which further led me to think, why the hell do i care? I watch reality TV to see what idiots people can be made to look and to see how much a of a dick the guy-whose-always-a-dick-character can be.

Will a genuine show with characters I'm meant to like and root for rather than despise
and wish misery upon work? And if it doesnt... what the hell does that say about me as a person!? :S

Part of me being weird out by Graham's performance in this comes of rewatching a lot of Desert Bus where Graham acts much more naturally.

I love LoadingReadyRun and Graham playing host has me very excited. Graham you make a perfect intimidating host with the glasses and the jumper and the folded arms. And all the comic artists seem nice and they all do great work.

I'm excited to get past the introduction bits to the actual art-making bits.

I admit, I kinda wish the episodes were longer; I barely felt like I'd got my teeth into it before it was done.

That said, I liked it, even though I was put off by the panning shots with ramped speed that then slackens off halfway through. I kept thinking, "Wait, I'm watching Amazing Race now?"

I pretty much feel the same way. Looking back, it feels like we were introduced to each person about four times over the span of a single episode. The first from the by the beach scenes, the second from their drawings (my personal favorite since it shows off their art style and skill), the third from when they're abducted, and the fourth being meeting one another. This made the episode feel slow to me. I think the first introduction could have been cut and the name of each person overlayed onto the shot of them being abducted.

That said, I have a feeling there's not much that could have been done about that feeling. The introduction was going to be slow. Unless they wanted to try cramping two episodes together, I don't think much was going to happen no matter how fast the first half was. I think it would have been worse to cut the show down to 10 minutes, include the first 5-8 minutes of some action beginning, and then suddenly stop the episode.

A friend of mine, who has a web comic, I sent a link to the first episode. He liked it allot but had one question for me afterward and I quote, "Who is the guy with the beard and glasses?"

So I explained and now hes caught up, but I thought that was funny.

I refuse to care about any of them. I don't know them after all. There's no reason for me to.

Must... resist...

Fine, you win. I'll care for them.

But being serious for a moment, I'm curious about the trap. Is it an immunity-idol sort of thing? Given traps are bad (Mmmkay) I kinda doubt it. It seems possible/likely that that's how the first person will get kicked out of the mansion/house/island. But we'll just have to wait and see.

Question: Is there any chance of getting some sort of Loading Time for this, or would any bonus/behind-the-scenes content be more likely to go up on the PATV site?

I only care about poor Thomas, the 13th contestant that you cut out of the series.

Poor guy went to use the bathroom and when he flushed the toilet the ground opened up and he fell into a pool of acid under the house. It took 9 excruciating hours for him to die while Mike and Jerry stood next to the vat with a pallet of baking soda refusing to help him out as he screamed.

They were taunting him the entire time first with a rope that they let go of as soon as he started climbing, then with a ladder that was flimsily made, finally they offered him a gun so he could "just end it" but kept giving him the wrong size bullets.

The whole time they kept saying "we will help you if you just draw us the next best web comic"

Wow that went to a really really dark place.

Is my favorite kicked out first? That's how this works isn't it? You get me to pick a favorite, and then BOOM! they're gone, and I'm stuck here all favoriteless and to stubborn to just pick a new one. Well then now that I know your plan I'll do what you weren't expecting and pick a favorite! HAHA!....oh

I was (very) vaguely aware that this was coming, so thanks for 'reminding' us on Checkpoint :D
Just finished watching the first episode and it was awesome, looking forward to more. Even/especially when judged as an interesting reality show, not just a Bionic Trousers endeavour.

As for Graham not being introduced, that's pretty common practice in reality show land (in my experience), and his name is in the credits enough for people to find out his name :P

Can't wait to see what kind of challenges were in there (but I will).

I am disappointed in Theodore's title in the credits, its so "professional".

Bradley's credits music seems reminiscent of the music in World of Goo to me, specifically Chapter 2. Anyone else feeling that vibe?

I have to agree with what was said on the StripSearch site, the fact that it's LRR edited makes me expect a stinger.

I liked this episode, and Graham no longer sounds so dubbed over. I look forward to Friday.

Yeah, nice, simple, relaxed game, winner got a cool mystery prize and everyone was cool and genial in that 'getting to know a roomful of strangers' way. Kinda like a little improv gameshow for artists.

Yea, it's obvious a couple people are already going into that mode. And honestly, it seemed like everyone elses' faces drooped after the prize was announced. It might have been better without the prize in my opinion, since it made the entire game kind of feel... dubious?

It's also weird seeing Graham in Survivor Host Mode.

The "Joss Whedon" school of reality TV? :P


If the first episode was warming up to the idea, the SECOND episode was what really grabbed me and said "This is a good thing that is happening here."
Great chemistry between everybody, plenty of laughs, so much sadness that one won't last the day.
I can't possibly pick a favourite. I love them all. :D
