Cam is not actually an asshole. However there is a certain part of my brain that only creates assholes.

In all fairness if a time traveller came back and told me that Time Cop is the best movie ever I would have the same reaction.

So it says you never have to say sorry... does that mean there are no Canadian scientists?

More Cam is never a bad thing. I love this guy.

In the portal 2 vidcast graham said a quote about cave johnson. "I don't trust this man."
Well, i think i'd trust him as a scientist more than i would kathleen. At least he knows how to put me back together if he turns me inside out.

Good job, everybody, another great episode! :)

I don't mean this as criticism, but it seems like LRR's been going up later in the day each week. Has the intense Monday release schedule led to editing right up to the last minute? If so, kudos, that's some real dedication.

Kathleen was amazing in this video.

Cam was indeed an asshole.

The late update was due to an upload error. It's the only delay I've noticed.
Any other delays are on their end.

I really enjoyed this one. James and Kathleen had a great chemistry together I've not noticed before. Do they actually have that many scenes where it's just the two of them?

If not, there should be more.

If so, there should be more.

haha, the machine you used as your "time machine", I used one of those in my lab in college. I forget the proper name for it, we just called it "big blue", for obvious reasons. In case anyone is curious, it's an analog instrument for measuring various properties of non-linear circuits. For example you can use it to measure the voltage to current curve of a transistor. If only we knew it could be used for time travel too! Would have made those long boring intro EE labs more interesting, that's for sure.

i think i am going to start a good debate with this but i thnik kathleen is a better mad scientist than paul it would be awesome to see them both as a mad scientist team, also cam is great in this he should play a nice guy in the next video he is in
Last night I was in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

I really liked the writing of this video, but I didn't expect it to be one by Kathleen. Not because Kathleen's a bad writer, but because usually her videos leave a bitter-sweet taste of lemonaids filled period blood in my mouth [in a good way].
Anyway, great video.

The second Cam's character asked James "what he was doing" I knew things weren't going to go well. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed ^^

The video as a whole was good, although the stinger was somewhat predictable. I almost think the bit at the end of the video (before the credits) should have been the stinger... Anyway, Kathleen was amazing in this video. That was a fantastic performance on her part.

That one was FANTASTIC. Loved it to death. And I think Cam stole the whole video; he has deadpan snarking down pat. Man, LRR has some great contributing cast: Tally, Morgan, Cam... you guys know a lot of really excellent actors.

I enjoyed the episode, as well as the asshole version of Cam.
Though if I may, at 2:38, there is a graphical mistake where James hand moves in front of Cam's head when it should be behind it.
It didn't ruin anything for me, just thought you'd like to know for next time.

Haha. This episode was a great birthday present.

(... OK, fine, so it wasn't made for my birthday, but it went up on my birthday, so... just---just don't ruin the moment for me, OK? :( )

Considering the recent news out of Atlanta, that Winnipeg Jets shirt will be a lot more relevant soon!

I was expecting more comments about the stinger messing up continuity.

Maybe I just think too much.

This made me laugh. Mad scientist Kathleen *needs* to happen more often. Also, Kathleen, I really like your red hair, it looks awesome!

This one was really good. The set-up was familiar (this is not the first LRR time travel we have seen) but the execution was awesome. The acting was very strong. The only think that bothered me was that Cam kept moving his eyes, but it's not a big deal. Good stuff!

This might be some of the best acting I've ever seen from Kathleen. And Cam did such a good job, I think it might be hard NOT to look at him like an asshat from now on. In all, excellent vid.
