Hooray!

Very slick. Kudos to Graham on the awesome motion graphics work, Bradley for the cool 8-bit intro/outro music, and all you guys for bringing back the ENN format. I've missed its snarky commentary and joke-filled lower thirds. (I chuckled at the "target demographic" dig at the beginning, too... let's hope PATV is a better fit!)

Awesome. I always loved the original ENN before things got really goofy and this is back to form. I was crying with laughter as Paul described what was or was not a Playstation.

Looking forward to Ryan Quickbender's first appearance!

...I swear to god i called that... i just didn't post it cause i was watching through old dailydrops.
but...well done. and i was more convinced it was some sort of cruel joke where it would go up on tuesday though RATHER than on a different site.

So, I thought the escapist owned all the rights to new content under the lrr name? Was this just a "We can't do it, but go ahead with them" Situation, Was i wrong? Or is the contract with the escapist now only for lrr remaining dailydrop and unskipable?

Also, passive aggressive line about your target audience much?

Holy Crap LRR you have blown my mind today.
Not only did you bring back the lovely ENN format with a fresh new look, but I'm also going to be able to buy music from Bradly now, yay, and to top that off you still have new stuff coming out soon.
Can't think to much awesome, so awesome...

So glad to have a show in this format again. You all are good at it and everything looked super slick, like you've had practice or something.

Also, that was an impressive splash from the egg.

ENN is back! I mean Check Point! Yay!

I loved ENN and the original format, so I am very happy now!

I am guessing since Russ Pitts is thanked this is done with The Escapist's blessing.

Yes!! This is totally Vis... Sledgehammer!

When Ryan Quickbender or his variant shows up, I will be jump through the ceiling with joy. I'm assuming Jer is still going to be the journalist doing the grunt work? I hope so.

Strangely my first thought when seeing that was "Wait, penny arcade owns the escapist now?!" Followed be "Wait, did lrr run away from the escapist and take russ with them?"

Yours makes alot more sense though.

Also as for jer being the journalist? I dunno, i think i'd not mind seeing a jer/tally pairup for that job.

Then it is safe because it is in fact a cat, although your computer is not safe as your cat probably sleeps on it when you don't use it, you'd better get a backup.

Is checkpoint also returning to the escapist? BECAUSE IT DAMN WELL SHOULD!

O, and is Penny Arcade TV bigger than the Escapist? Or better in some way?

Not what I expected to see, and especially not where I thought I would see it. I really enjoyed it though.

Did anyone else keep thinking there was a download link on the video? I kept wanting to click on it.

Wow, was totally not expecting this. I liked the subtle dig at the big e, but the humour here was top form classic ENN. The graphics seemed much slicker and the music was awesome. A little strange to see a LRR production not using blue but I can get used to that. You've clearly taken everything you've learned from doing ENN and turned it into a funnier, slicker, more awesome show. And as for getting it on PATV well you're finally getting the recognition and exposure you deserve well done!

So where will the second new series be? And how can you top this?

More LRR, excellent. Wait, there's even more new LRR stuff incoming. You guys must love taking my bandwidth away from me. Do I wait patiently for the next episode, or do I watch it again? OR, am I watching it again already?
