Seriously, this is one of your best scripts in a long time. Just so outrageous; I loved it!

Nothing could prepare me for James miming "Think about it". It was awesome.

It did need those two background characters to make it work, it wouldn't have been as good without them.

Brilliant :D Especially the stinger with the poor rover :D

Also Selenites - reference to The First Men In The Moon?

Love it.
It's not epic unless it's dactylic hexameter.

Production values through the roof on this one, and the writing was superb!

I laughed hard at this one; every detail was perfect, from the audio fading in as Graham adjusted the lever, to James and Kathleen's extra touches. I agree with Michi; James mouthing "think about it" nailed it.

I'm afraid I've never liked Story Guy, I've never liked Jonny, and I don't like this guy either. I just do not find Graham monologues funny, and I wish I could.

My wife is convinced James is actually playing an old Infocom game on his computer. What _was_ on the computer monitors we could see? Anything real or just random stuff?

Great video. The James and Kathleen characters really did put it over the top.

James' computer seemed to have some sort of source code, based on the indents.

And yeah, this was really, REALLY good...

...but based on the fact that this was a little TAME and SENSIBLE compared to some of the absolute batshit loco wingnuts I've seen over the years, I'm not sure I find it funny. :?

But again, fantastic performances; James, Kathleen and Graham were amazing, the editing and compositing were quite believable, the props, even costuming were top-notch! Just downright creepy how perfect and believable it all was (as in, someone would believe y'all WERE a trio of 'underground citizen investigators' with a crackpot hypothesis about something completely-above-board).

I think the background computers (James's at least) might have been running this, or something like it...

I will watch the action movie based on these conspiracy theorists having to break someone out of space prison.

The credits on this video looked perfectly normal. But look closer. There's something missing. That's right, the boom! The data collection device that's closest to...you guessed it...space! Clearly, the conspiracy runs even deeper than we thought.

My eyes have been opened, but just one question, what about the Voyager probes? What could a person do to not only be exiled from the earth but the solar system?

This is definitely more believable than some conspiracy theories. I want to see them tie HAARP and chemtrails up into a neat package like this.
