His list was (with my editing to forumify):
Andy wrote:#5 - Rapid Fire, Series 1 (especially the bits with Johnny and Graham)
#4 - Krogslist
High-concept puns and caveman syntax. Most pleasing.
#3 - The Jonny Series
Brilliant character writing. Also I love Story Guy and The Whole Story series.
#2 - It's Very Simple
LRR meta at it's best. Elegantly written, and amazing when performed live.
And still my favourite after nearly 8 years - #1 - Eyewitness Accounts
The story telling in Eyewitness Accounts is gorgeous. I'm going to talk about it for a bit. You've got all these vivid characters, such distinct flavours of people, sharing their perspective of the same story. And an EPIC story; a huge screwball scenario, but with all the varied & intimate points of view, it somehow feels like it actually happened. The use of dramatic irony: the way the segments are edited, the context in which they are placed ... It all serves to heighten the unseen relationships between the characters and the absurdity of the story. The world-building is so subtle, but beautiful. The employees in the furniture store, the mall cop, the sculptor ... They're all on the screen for maybe twenty seconds each altogether, but I understand how they all fit, how they feel about each other. And it just keeps chugging; the momentum doesn't stop. The story has a marvellous arc and swell to it. Amazing considering that the actors had no idea what the whole story was. At least I didn't. They fed me my 3 or 4 lines and that was it. And maybe it's my favourite because it has so many of my friends in it, all in something beautiful together.
So this lead me to my thoughts: What are your Top 5 LRR Weekly Sketches, now that they're all wrapped up? Why those five? And do you notice any common elements among your favourites?
