I loved the pause right before the number changed to 48. It gave me a small bit of hope that she was OK, then poof gone. Amazing video LRR keep up the great work.

I laughed. But it did seem slow paced. It's a good thing it was short, though. Still seemed to drag with a lot of the jokes repeating themselves.

Greatly enjoyable. Reminded me a lot of Look Around You. "What are graphs? It's a difficult question, because graphs are impossible to describe." Also, funniest moment was the self-updating infographic from 47 to 48.

Congrats to your graphics department, not just for the graphs, but for the shadows of all the writing, going behind people, being reflected by the table and so on.

Oh, and the Bradley Rains music was perfect, as usual. And by 'perfect as usual' I mean I barely noticed until I saw his name in the credits, then realised exactly the right music had been playing the whole time.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun with that.

I'll pass that on. I know exactly what you mean too, it's one of those things that you only notice by its absence, or its crappiness. When the music is just perfect, it's just... there.

I'd say there have been alterations, but probably *after* the video was filmed. You'll notice that *this* video, according to the schedule, was scheduled to go up last week. The ICP Rebuttal was probably a last-minute addition to the schedule to keep it topical, so any sebsequent date will either have been pushed back a week, or outright re-arranged.

Still, it'd be nice if a new cH went up on my b'day...

This video is still awesome.

But! I didn't know where else to comment on the picture on the front page blog... the one with the jib? Yes! Look in the background. You have two world maps from PAX, one from PAX East! That is SO SWEET. :D

I didn't really enjoy this one. It dragged on a bit too long.

I knew what was going to happen as soon as I saw the pie chart, yet I STILL jumped when it killed her.

Add me to the list of people who saw the corpse and was like "wait... that's not Paul! What's going on??"

Did anyone else think that Matt was Tim in this episode? I sure did...at least until the scream. This is kind of sad, though, because I've been watching for years.

Also, I too agree that Paul makes the best corpse.

You could try downloading it from here, which shouldn't be a problem since it's not tied to the Escapist player.

I actually signed up on the forums because of this video... just to let you guys know that I completely loved the Quantum Documentary throwback.

Now I have yet another forum to add to my addiction.... yay!

This video apparently also introduces a new sub-species of homo mortuus, the fatalias graphicus. Killed by and with graphs, craves the ink of markers, and can strike in any area with a whiteboard. GOD SAVE US ALL.

Well thankfully the Fatalias Graphicus strain of the virus seems to have a pretty long getation period, and it's relatively easy to rule out other causes of death in dead bodies found near whiteboards, so while there is a wide risk of it happening there's also the balancing factor that they're easy to identify.

Another positive thing seems to be that they don't directly attack humans, so as long as you don't look at a graph they've drawn you should be allright.



Also, @jtaylor, that's a pretty funny strip. :D

Looks like Graham really did forget that we'd be able to see the whiteboard in HD.

It's not a great screenshot but it's the best I can grab.

We've had "unemployed announcer", CHustle: Gay Chicken and now "Installation Anxiety 2.0"

So for the ones I can read that leaves us with "The Drive" and "CHustle: Nerf"

I think a couple times when the crew knew the white board was going to be in shot they have put a fake schedule up. I guess with the lower quality Escapist videos they have not been as careful although this changes with the Publisher's Club. Anyway this weeks video is not mentioned.

Well their schedule is subject to change now because they're working a few videos ahead, so the order changes or they can drop one in to make it current as they did for ICP. This weeks one is on there though, it's up near the top.
