Loading Time for this certainly promises to be interesting.

It's rare for James to have such a dominant lead role in a video, a nice change of pace and I think he performed very well.

I really enjoyed this one. A bit weird, but very funny and well made.

^That. Always nice to see more of James*.

With all the bubbles, we couldn't really see more of him anyways.

How did Paul's character open the door is my big question that nobody else probably cares about.

I was wondering who wrote this as I was watching. I should have guessed it was another Andy Cownden Special.

The ending was entirely too predictable, but everything leading up to it was pure gold.

I liked it, boredom can make you lose all concept of time. Thumbs up.

However, there was a window just off screen wasn't there? I kept seeing blue/cold light in the video.

Wow.

That was amazing.
Man, Andy writes DARK stuff. I always want to ask him if he's okay after seeing every video he's written. Except maybe Toilet Humour.

And James really knocked the acting out of the park. I cannot stress this point enough.

Very funny indeed... Had expected a more weird ending, but the stinger made up for it.

Lost it at "my bowel movements have become fascinating". Well executed if slightly drawn out.

I enjoyed the episode as a whole, but something just didn't seem to work about it for me. It seemed to go on a little too long I think. The ending was fairly easy to call, but the stinger more then made up for it. A lot of the jokes, like the bubble bath, made me laugh as well.

What kind of issue caused the door to be impossible to open from the inside but not the outside though?

Heck with this supposed window, how about the fact that THE HINGES ARE ON THE INSIDE WITH THE SUPPOSED PRISONER; I could've had them pulled out with some of the stuff seen to be in the bathroom inside of three hours.

But yeah - Willing Suspension of Disbelief an' all...


GREAT performance James, and great writing Andy!

I LOVE this, as I'm a huge fan of Pi. James' voiceover/Andrew Cownden's script had me in stitches. So much that I actually registered on these LRR forums. Still laughing... gonna watch it again and show it to everyone I know who's seen π.

I lost it at James' toilet paper tie, and again at "Day Rutabaga." I didn't think it dragged that much, and while the ending was a little predictable, I think on the whole it was hilarious.

I too cannot wait for the Loading Time for this one. Also, which Calvin and Hobbes book was that?

So, does this mean James and Alex are anti-bathroom buddies now?

I can't believe James was able to make that tie.
It's tied properly and everything.

I thought the video was pretty funny. However, from the preview pic posted on Twitter I was kind of hoping for a "The whole story" about Sriracha.

That would explain why alex went off the wall, though I wonder which one is the Top>?

This episode was awesome, but it was missing something...

Thank you! That reminds me - I need to get a new copy of "Something Under the Bed is Drooling." Our family copy was lost to the ether ages ago.
