I really like the rapid fires and this one was one of the best. I also don't understand why the story time segments are in there but the rest was really good. Another well done guys.

I thought the detective bit was exceptionally well written.

That is not Dana, that is Kate, Graham's younger sister. FYI.

Okay, I screwed up alright?

I thought those were storybook scenes we hadn't used yet, and evidently I was wrong. I very carefully marked the ones we had been using, and apparently I used the wrong ones.

I'm quite proud of this series, and rather than complaining about a small mistake, I feel there's a lot of good stuff in this video to focus on.

Regarding the "same jokes", if you watch all of them in sequence, you can see the characters building, and they all have culminations in this episode. Riley finally thinks Rodriguez has merit, the ASS expert finds something worthwhile, the reporter actually swears... the changes are subtle, but present.

Sorry it was too distracting to see Paul's shots again. I'll fix it when I get back to Victoria.

I'm with Graham on this one. I noticed the story-book thing, but to be honest I didn't really care - I still enjoyed them - though mainly because the amoutn of effort these guys must put into the videos still scares me slightly; so I'm not gonna criticise them.*

'Falling from a tree'... I gaffawed at that bit [on the newsreporter sketch].

Saying that the jokes are all the same is like saying that every "how many X does it take to screw in a lightbulb" joke is the same because it adheres to a basic formula - the joke itself is different every time!

R&R and Explanations were outright great, and Technical Problems had just a few easy-to-overlook technical problems. (For some reason, the very first skit's static really seemed to suggest the curse words implied, and it got harder each time to hear - or maybe it's just me.)

I really don't grok this "I hate Rapidfire" vibe I'm getting. (shrug)

Well, I thought the whole thing was hilarious...and maybe I will go watch the rest of the Rapidfire stuff after I am done with school for the semester.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Holy crap, that is the most hilarious thing that I have seen today. As ti happens though, I live in Pringe George, which is really far away from Victoria, so I have appeared in only two LRR sketches, and helped with a third.

Also, I have really small boobs...I could never aspire to have cleavage like Kayt's.

"Oh yes," said the other mother. "I put her in there myself. And when I found her trying to crawl out, I put her back."

Another small problem with this rapidfire is it title. All the prevous rapidfire have had title like Rapidfire: Episode 1 while this one is Rapidfire 5.

Also Geoff is not credited for his role as the news anchor.

I know I NEVER said I hate Rapidfire, I actually love them, this one just didn't do it for me, partially because of the Story Book, but not totally. It just didn't vibe for me like previous ones did.

And it's not because of the similar jokes across them, I have no problem with that. I just didn't find these ones as funny.

And as for not critisizing free content, I dig that, I'm not trying to bite the hand that feeds me much comedy gold, I'm simply trying to point out things I felt were lacking or could be improved or something along that line(not that I can really put my finger on it with this one). But if Graham doesn't want to hear it that's all he has to say and I will, without any fuss, keep my mouth shut :)

Anyways, I just didn't dig this one as much as the others, but not for any reasons I can really articulate.

Oh and Graham, I wasn't meaning to bitch about the STory Book, I was just slightly confused as to what happened. No Worries.

It was pretty good, but couldn't quite beat out Rapidfire 4 in my opinion.

In any case, I think that if you're going to do another go of Rapidfire, you should start it in the same way you did here. You should do it as you get closer to doing another LRL (if you DO go with doing another) and use it when you have less time to work on new videos each week.

Darn it, sorry Dana, and Kate. I thought I had gotten that right. But now I have to question: Who The Hell Is Dana? And why did I think of her?

(searches archives)

Ahh yes, LoadingReadyLabs, how could I forget.

"Dude, he pretty much said it all." Still hilarious, glad it's in the archives.

A few things
A: Overall a good update. Made me laugh. Not as funny as four though.
B: Was disappointed about the story guy thing.
C: I would have loved for their to have been another running gag. I don't know if the segments are supposed to be punchlines of the running gags that are the segments.
D: Is the audio supposed to cut out when the reporter at the desk first talks? I hear nothing from the children's story to where it cuts to Steve Clark.

Nope. It'll probably be a while before my mug is on the screen again; I didn't end up transferring out there, and I might not for post-grad--so I'm stuck in and around Windsor for at least the next two years.

Alas, Dana, it would seem as though I'm once again your superior: I've only appeared in ONE sketch, I've helped with more than three, and I'm about an eight-day drive away (whereas you're only a couple hours.)

So ha.

Yeah, the storyteller repeats did detract a lot from this--I'd imagine that a lot of the negative feedback is just the result of that one little mistake being left to fester.

Then again, I seem to recall some Mister Show episodes that recycled old sketches.

So who knows.

By "a couple" you mean "12 hour drive", right?

Yes. Compared to a motherfucking week.

Therefore, I still win.

Nice try, though.

Actually, I submit that you lose, as I live closer to Victoria than you do. Therefore, I can make more visits to Victoria than you can, and have more fun.

Also, I am not stuck in Windsor ^_^

I thought re-using the story guy skits was the running gag. Shows what I know.

Bill O'Reilly is a bruised banana, 'driving manual' is extramarital sex, I should never leave the house or be around people, there's a product called Crunk, and never say 'fuck' on live TV.
