I love that you can still see the confusion in Beej's eyes, really sells it for me.

On a side note, two video's about muggings in a row, are the Runners coming back or something? ;P

Is it just me or did anyone else expect Beej to off himself at the line "he'll be fine."

Just me? Right then.

Oh, wow, that would've been extra dark :D

...no, not just you.

To be honest, the closer was very formulaic (as intended, I imagine), but the stinger REALLY saved it!

I actually really like how cliched the characters and direction are, while bitching about just that.

Loved this episode! No idea why but towards the end I was almost in tears. Paul and Kathleen really played their parts well. And Beej, wow your eyes sold it so perfectly. Was this Beej first writing credit as well?

I like to pretend that Paul and Kathleen were Olympian Gods, immortals from ancient times who have experienced everything society has had to offer from then to now. Probably not what was intended, but I like it. :D

Is it a bad thing that I want to see that couple run into a mugger with an overdeveloped appreciation for the classics?

Somehow I imagine Paul's character is related to the one who gets kidnapped and bundled into car boots on a regular basis. Same sort of seen it all before/trying to help bring variety but more highbrow :D

Ugh, this comments thread is so cliche... EVERY single week people just PRAISE LRR to the HEAVENS... It's overdone, people!

How about next week we analyze LRR's weekly video from a post-colonial historiographical perspective!
Or maybe we could take screencaps and photoshop cute and fuzzy animals into the background, and discuss how that affects the quality of the video!
Or, OR, we could all break into the Moonbase while Graham is still editing the video and suggest changes that he could make!

I usually post ironic comments, but just this once I'm going to be serious.

This video was funny, as was last week's.

But they both prominently featured guns.

Many of LRR's fans live in that country just south of Canada where it seems like every week brings another news story about somebody with a gun killing a bunch of innocent people. And in the next country to the south of that one, where drug cartels and the government are essentially at war with each other, shootings are commonplace in cities that were once considered safe.

I like dark comedy, but these last two videos haven't been in the "dark" genre so much as the "gun porn" genre.

Could we have some videos featuring props that aren't guns?

I'm gonna disagree with you about this; "gun porn" to me invokes images of a particular style of action film, where a gun is almost an extension of the character and is idolised as some object of supreme manliness. In fact, I wouldn't consider of even 'dark', on the basis that the central theme is not death or any such thing but crime (and, indeed, about as minor a serious crime as one can get, since no violence is involved).

Plus... I could make jokes about pirates, whilst just a few thousand miles away there are people actively engaging in this trade in about the most violent and deplorable manner imaginable, and the joke could still be funny. Not would (not least because I'm not massively good at jokes), but it could still be made to be funny and light-hearted; like that Now Show joke about burying treasure. It is good manners for comedy to avoid going too close to the bone, but to exclude guns as mere props to aid a joke simply because they are a very serious problem seems like going a mite far.

I think I am going to interpret all LRR videos from this perspective from now on.

New gods? We LRRmons have been worshiping the Moonbase-dwellers for years, whippersnapper.
