I'm really quite excited to see how this progresses. It's almost like seeing how you guys would do one of your old videos if you were to re-make it with your current skills.

Obviously series 2 isn't meant to replace series 1, but still, it's the closest thing to such a direct comparison that I think we're ever likely to get. =D

Bravo guys.

Nobody else has aked this yet, so I may as well:

What is the URL that the gangstas are standing in front of in that scene?

It looks like a building in UVIC, I can make out "epiology" (I think, definitely epio).

Oh man this is so funny I was jus saying to myself how I wish they would make more rapidfire videos.

I love the "outstanding" bits a lot, but the bird/plane bits were hilarious.

James makes a great Clark Kent, but I don't want to see him in skin tight spandex.. ever.

That opening gunshot sounded like it was a sample from Goldeneye for the N64 in my opinion.

you may have noticed the other intro bits? the pundits before the political rally, for instance? the gangsters are the same thing, a goofy little visual gag, leading into the classroom scene.

So... Not 64K?

I simply couldn't believe what I was seeing when Rapidfire turned out to be today's video. The previous Rapidfires ranked among my favorites. Well done LRR!

I'll be very interested to see the Loading Time for this as well as listen to the lrrcast.
It would be pretty dope if LRR got a crane; so please say you got a crane?

Let me just say that if you do bring back another theme from the last one, Graham and Johnny Blakeborough's would be my pick. "Have you been drinking the internet?" gets me every time...

Just for the record, there isn't going to be a Loading Time for every video or anything... Maybe one a month.

Noooooo... Tim, you just killed me! :cry:
Well, on the bright side, maybe you'll do one for a future Rapidfire, since it is a series and all. Please?

There may be a Loading Time: Rapidfire sometime in the future, but probably not until the series is done.

I think many of you are confused by the idea of "establishing shots"
They are just establishers, that also have small visual gags.
That is all.

Unless there's a blur transition, then it's the same scene.

Great work, guys. Not sure which of the mini-skits is my favorite, they're all so awesome.

Thirdly: Tim in a video! Yay!

Also, I found it amusing that in the scene where Superman/Clarke Kent shoots the bird down that there were actual birds in the background.

I was very impressed by the camerawork on the scenes with Matt and Paul giving out cards, it really looks like you guys had a crane for that one.

Finally, I'm in two minds about the return of Rodriguez and Riley. It's pretty funny once or twice, but I think those scenes need some more progression between them. Overall though, I really enjoyed this video. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the series!
True, this.

Very enjoyable, very well-done. Nice work. :D

Tim looks too much like Matt; one of you needs to be surgically altered to avoid confusion.
