Excellent as always. If you guys wanted to just make cHustles every week, I wouldn't complain. Just saying.

Love it when I check my email and its a new cHustle!
This one was so good! Loved Beej's reaction to Paul's new goggles! Can't blame him for freaking out :D
These episodes keep getting better and better!

I love it! So full of references.
The bike...
Alex's streaming addiction...
The Meme Stream...
Feed Dump with THIS hat... (Wondering if it's a double reference since it appears to be a Loyal Order of Water Buffalo hat, which is reference to the Flintstones' take on Masonry, and Beej is a Mason.)
The addiction of everyone playing Dark Souls... (By the way, will Beej ever play Dark Souls for real? :D)
"Go left"...

And that subtle effect at the end with the overlay.

I am, however, curious what "double-streaming" would even entail... Streaming on 2 channels at once?

Unrelated, in the tangle of wires Beej holds up, I can make out 2 HDMI plugs, a USB plug, and some sort of power box.

My only complaint would be that it felt a little short. cH episodes generally work with a more longform arc... it seemed like there was a secondary element to the story missing.

While it was only a little bit shorter than an average episode (about 7 minutes on average, while this was about 5 3/4), we're used to flipping between an A Story and a B story in commodoreHUSTLE episodes. This one only had an A Story, with no B Story.

So the cH Paul now has time-travel technology? This can't possibly end badly.

I really liked Beej's portrayal of a shell-shock victim. Also, it's good to know that disturbances in the space-time continuum and/or the notion of causality only cause minor earthquakes.

And the earthquakes really just depend on having a screen show the futurestream just outside the streaming office! Easy to avoid, probably.

Generally we DO have two plots in a cH episode, but James, Kathleen, and I were out of town when this was originally shot (there were reshoots, we'll tell you later), so we'll say the B plot was off-camera :)

Oh sure, that works for you guys with competent internet companies in first world countries... what about the rest of us where a 20 second delay would be a miracle? Unless you've got some sort of time/space variance field thing.

Not bad though. One little detail I noticed was that there's no transition after the opening titles... just cuts straight back into the action. Seems a little off putting, but being that it's a continuing scene, I can see the logic. Still weird though.

okay this went from commodoreHUSTLE to an episode of Doctor Who really fast. That's not the problem, the problem is that it ended.

Wait, why is there a blurred stream overlay of Paul, Cam, and Alex watching Beej stream?
Are we watching them THROUGH the stream monitor?

Because the camera is supposed to be "inside" the TV?

Alright. I didn't notice the overlay was flipped at first.

I just finished watching the latest Dr. Who and this was a fantastic follow up. :D

[This should be in the commodoreHUSTLE forum!]

Considering that Paul played with time, it's possible the b-story will take place later during this episode...

We could end up with a BttF episode where future selves end up interacting with parts of this episode?

This very much.

Excellent episode; I love all the references.

I think this was the only commodoreHUSTLE that didn't have Graham.

This video is amazing.

From 1:46 to 2:00 is basically my new favorite scene ever. It's so perfect.

So is Alex's "We're dead. We're dead and it's your fault."

LOVE IT.

I have to say, this technology is definitely something I've considered trying to add to LRRbot... it would be fun to be able to run community-voted MtGO drafts again, something we haven't been able to feasibly do since the tech switch however long ago that jumped the lag up into the half-minute range...

I'm sure equipping LRRbot with time-travel technology would have absolutely no repercussions whatsoever, and humanity would be completely safe.
