The crew deals with their recent, self-imposed business change, while Cameron and Alex occupy their time with everyone's fav gothic horror game.

I see Cam has had to shift to stealing stream time during the day since Graham kicked him off inadvertently! Also Cam choke!

So much fun. Didn't realize how much I've missed the Commodore Hustlegang. The video was like a visit from an old friend. Not a nice friend, but funny. In that way that'd probably be less funny if it was yourself getting the choke-palm in your face. Man those characters are terrible people. Kathleen's concern from Graham, in that context, is weirdly effective. Those small human moments seem to matter more cause they're so rare, and also serve to contrast the usual absurdity of the characters.

Is this depth of storytelling the result of you guys having more time to put into these things now? Or was it always like this and we never took the time to appreciate it with new sketches every week? Better go back and rewatch everything really carefully to find out.

6:32 to 6:38 - I think Alex's cheek is accessing his phone's email. :D

Nice return for cHustle, guys! I like the continuing trend of always dragging cHustle LRR along the real-time time line.

Also, the slow moving Laff-a-tron was fantastic.

And, on to the one part of the video that I found somewhat irritating...

A new Hustle. Today is a good day.

Also, may I officially second requests regarding Beej's shirt.

I was aware that Baxter is a large cat. But after watching this video I realized that large isn't the right word to describe him. He's a freaking giant.

LRR used cHustle! It's super effective!

Really, this was some of the best stuff I've seen from LRR in a while, and there's some good competition. Keep up the awesome work!

Also, I too had to pause for Beej's shirt, wow.

I had to pause to read Beej's shirt, check forums to see if it was available, then register an account to add my question to the rest.

Absolutely loved the video, Alex and Cam had me laughing out loud on most of their lines.

But boy, Cam sure has a strong grip doesn't he.

I mean... I say my cat is a butterball and an arm full, but I can't even imagine trying to pick up Baxter. Holy crap.

Amazing video! And great job with the camera work, especially with things like the "Graham getting up" scene.
I'm curious about the teaser with Paul setting up the streaming office though - was that made as a one-off, or is there a 12 minute directors cut of this cH episode somewhere?

I refuse to believe that's a real cat. I reckon Tally had a few kilos of fake fur lying around spare, so they stuck a couple of googly eyes on it and used it as a "stunt cat". :D

I’ve really missed the weekly sketches. So I’m happy we’re getting some new episodes of cH.

Not sure if there were any on the LRR Store page or if there will be through Desert Bus but looks like they are available through this link:
http://www.fat-tee.com/awesome-t-shirts/mtg-phases-t-shirt/


I'm left wondering if part of the reason for this video is not being with The Escapist anymore...This video makes no mention of the Patreon...*gasp*

I think the link you meant to post was:
http://store.loadingreadyrun.com/collections/shirts/products/phases-shirt

:mrgreen:

As for the Beej Phases shirt, I made that as a one-off without telling anyone. I had the idea a while ago and I'd been fine-tuning it for weeks. The cH was an excellent chance to wear something that cH-Beej would wear.

It is currently not an official LRR product.

Just casually noting that I would buy the Beej shirt in a heartbeat.

Really good epsiode, so good job Kathleen and Graham on the writing. Episode keeps an excellent pace.
