THE LRR VIDEO RATINGS THREAD!

Postby Elah » 22 Aug 2014, 06:20

At the suggestion of others, I've compiled all of the threads I started into one master thread. So:

As suggested in the latest LRR cast, I've started this thread to aggregate fan favorites (and least favorites) among the LRR sketches. So, please post ANY OR ALL of the following lists:

- Your Top 10 LRR Sketches of All Time
- Your 5 Worst LRR Sketches of All Time
- Your Top 5 LRR Sketches out of a given season. You may do any number and selection of seasons you wish.

The results are available on this spreadsheet! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LVZ3qaIFnFgplpLoolh4J3MnEQeRUKDrLWqiqcvaooU/edit?usp=sharing

Your lists DO NOT HAVE TO BE IN ORDER, but I would prefer it because it will make the math more precise. :)

DO NOT INCLUDE cH VIDEOS OR SERIES LIKE RAPIDFIRE OR JONNY.

4. The Birds, the Bees, and the Bears

My top 5 for Season Ten were, in no particular order:

Spring!
The Couch
Xannathor
Munro's Meats
What's Going On

Honourable mentions go to Junk in the Trunk, CMN, Men: Easter, and The Travel Bug. I'll do other seasons, but I'm watching all the videos first, in case I missed any, and to refresh my memory, as I don't tend to re-watch videos, apart from a few of my favourites.

Every so often I re-watch the likes of Ransom, Nuntastic, OMG Bears, Digital Love, Crime and Punishment, Son of a Bitch, Bagel Time, and Brain Transplants made easy, so I expect they will be in the top 5 of the respective seasons, but we'll see.

I'd need to go though and remember which videos are in which seasons, but the worst video of all time is probably "A Brief History of Lame"

I understand Graham and Paul probably have a personal attachment to it, being the first video they ever uploaded, but even by Season 1 standards, it's easily the low point.

Okay, my top lists:

Season One:

- Quantum Documentary
- Andy, Esq.

- CCYD
- Small Time
- OMG! Bears

Season Four:

- Installation Anxiety
- Eyewitness Accounts
- The Season 4 Finale

Season Five:
- Son of a Bitch

- All the Little People
- The Writer's Room
- Deeply Religious

Season Six:
- Has This Ever Happened To You?
- ArMEGAddon
- The Secret of the Sauce
- Apartment Hunting
- Omnilingual

Season Seven:
- Paper Boy
- Toothy Smile
- The Basement
- The LRR CD-ROM Game
- Split Decision

Season Eight:

- The Fountain

Season Eleven (As of 08/24/2014):
- EVERYTHING IS FINE
- The Warriors Return
- Social Anxiety Fear Factor
- Krogslist
- Flat Out

Top Five (All-Time)
1. Son of a Bitch
2. Has This Ever Happened To You?
3. Give In
4. The Thin Blue Clue
5. EVERYTHING IS FINE
Honorable Mention: Social Anxiety Fear Factor

What can I say, I like my LRR shorts dark :P

Although, if we include the related Crapshots, Krogslist might make the Top 5 all time cut, and commodoreHustle always cracks me up as well.

Bottom 5, explanation:

Okay, to cop out on the Bottom 5, just because I can't think of anything outside of "A Brief History of Lame" that stands out as particularly bad. (I'm not gonna go through the old non-sketch videos and parse through them all to determine which ones I like marginally less than the others), so I'll just do this:
Bottom 5:
1. Brief History of Lame
2*. The random non-sketch videos from the early seasons.
3-5 (and beyond). X ways to Y videos. I've actually basically stopped watching these when they release. While I enjoy the recurring Sam Raimi, and occasionally something will make me chuckle slightly, I've never been a fan of these.

* - Yes, I understand there's more than one.

Hmm, I'm late on LRRcasts, so I started up a Doc about this, too. Will rethink my thoughts and process and get back to you.
