Coincidentally, this in exactly what it looks like when we write LRR scripts, even down to the rolled up sleeves and suspenders.

And lo, it came to pass in the midway of the video did thy get what the damnation thee were on about, and I rolf'd for 40 seconds uncontrollably.

This style of gratz would go further but I'm too tired to come up with more. Yay Andy!

Yay, Andy! Yay for Andy's writing!

This video was blasphemously good. Interesting take on how, "Honor thy father and thy mother" came about. I was also expecting James to come out as James (of Zebedee or otherwise) but, oh well.

P.S. Is it just me, or was that video one whole take? If so...wow.

P.P.S. Was that the script Graham was holding?

Andy is a freaking comic genius, and this video makes it quite evident. Right after I realized what was actually going on I couldn't stop laughing... oh damn, that was a great video!!

A+++ job, everyone (Andy gets extra marks for calling Morgan a putz)

It's always the script.

Great video, I'd have to say one of your best skits since Toast.

Umm this video was far from easy Corax, we don't mind people telling us what they do and don't like, but what you just wrote is useless to us. But thanks for coming out.

Do you have any concept of how challenging it was to shoot the video like that?
We had to actually rehearse. We never rehearse.

great vid guys. Just one thing I thought odd. When Andy is wanting to fight Paul, Graham tells Andy "Luke. Luke, its not worth it. Calm down" when Andys character name is Mark. Just thought Id throw that out there.

Corax likes Will and Jay. He doesn't find the same things funny as the rest of us.

I thought that whole things was super-clever and really beautifully paced and written.
There was just a teeny bit more hand-held zipping about stuff than my poor muddled head liked but really it was *totally* worth it for the other stuff.

Agreed. At first I thought they were arguing about the content of a new Heritage Minute but when that didn't fit I looked closer at the blackboard & other clues. Again, about midway through I got it. Excellent timing on this one; it warrants for multiple viewings. And excellent writing, Andy.

Morgan's character was my favourite. Especially his lines off-screen.

Also, all in one take? Amazing. :shock:

lol - i just watched it again - and the stuff on the board(or what i could clearly read of it) was awesome

i wish it ended up as "lo, there was samauri" (or sheep)


also, when it pans back from morgan to the other three at the begining, and andy goes "who the fuck are you" is an awesome moment!

I loved the book of Stan reference. Paul was very good in this one.

Good stuff guys. I am feeling ill and this made me feel better.

BTW Graham calls Andy Luke a couple of times.

All I could make out was the " t + [star] = ?" And "And Lo There Was" & a list. Were you able to read more?

Brilliant. That's pretty much all there is to say. Everyone's roles were pretty much perfectly cast and performed.

I hope that Morgan keeps his mellow unharshed.

Wow, I think this is my new favorite video. Especial props on the structure - the concept was great, but the solid beginning and hilarious end really made it shine.

Bit of biblical trivia - Of the four gospels, John's focuses the most on things like the fulfilling of prophecy and symbolism and the Kingdom of Heaven and such. I'm not sure if "Harold" was supposed to be the one who eventually became John, but his peaced-out global-world-view demeanor dovetails nicely with the "ate a few too many of those wild mushrooms" implications that a lot of people see in the book of John.

And because I'm feeling sensitive today - Corax, it's okay to dislike something, but whining about it is not useful; it just makes you a dick. You can be critical without being rude. Learn the difference.
