Graham comes down with something and his friends try to give him his own chance to battle at the Magic 2015 Prerelease.

WOW! That was amazing! The escalation of Graham getting sick, Kathleen and Graham arguing without Graham even speaking (married couple style :P) and then just a wonderful escalation of "helpful" co-players. And to top it all of, a Taptapconcede against your own preview card.

This is the best Friday Nights you have ever done, hands down!

I assume Cam was a bit warm wearing that coat in our recent weather.

Really good episode!
The entire part with Graham getting sick was really funny.

My only complaint is that YouTube only lets me like a video once.
It's time to roll the dice.

I wanted to slap the "unhelpful jerks" and I wasn't even in the video. Excellent. Many laughs throughout!

All the recent FN videos (including hero's path) have been knocking it out of the park, and this one continues the trend

The flip back to Graham doing something different for his sickness each time, James acting like an announcer, Beej's clueless enthusiasm, the implied joke of Alex's misinterpretations, the absolute filthiness of using Hunt the Weak on Hornet's Nest vs a 7/7 matched only by the dream of using Ensoul Artifact on an Ornithopter...and a TTC just out of frame, unless I miss my guess.

IIRC these are the cH versions of the crew, i.e., like them but waaaaay exaggerated. Thus, Beej instead of almost having an idea of Magic, by osmosis, has No Idea.

I liked the detail of James keeping the mic after he got fired.

Ha, I assume Beej's "turning cards sideways" was inspired by his commentary during the 90s Magic video in Late Night Dub Fight? I was just referencing that during his stream on Monday! Glad to see him in Friday Nights :D

Not a Magic fan, but I enjoyed the video. The opener was pure editing gold!

I like to think they also called Paul, who started work on a contraption that would allow Graham to play the game through the MTGO interface.

Having played EDH with a temporarily mute friend, I can say this is pretty accurate.

Given the usual conceit of Friday Nights, is Beej now the only person in that universe who doesn't play the game?

Also, the delivery on "I was told to stand here" had me laughing so hard I had to pause the video.

On that note...

Loved it, from the escalation of sickness and various remedies at the start to the growing frustration with trying to use an interpreter in game (especially when James went into full on commentator mode) all with Graham saying barely a word.

That can't have been easy :D Great job guys!

Having once had almost no voice at FNM, loved it!

James in full commentator mode was amazing and makes me wonder how involved LRR is going to be at the nex MTGO Community Cup?

Strangely, in spite of the mostly positive reaction of everyone else, I found it Meh. Yes, it was certainly well-executed, as all LRR videos are now. However, it felt... disconnected to me, somehow.

It felt like 8 Crapshots just jammed together, really.

Beej saying "I was told to stand here." was fully worth the price of admission!

Cam's swag put it over the top, too. That was like the deathtouch on Vampire Nighthawk - just extra awesome sauce!
