Thanks to Lord Chrusher for submitting the original script!

1979!

Wait... no?

Very nice. I like the re-use of the ENN set (with different lighting... or background papering). Also, good stock footage of Chrusher on the Science building's roof.

Also, dugg.

Now I see why during AAAL, Jer and Matt were talking about long monologues...

What the hell is Paul wearing?

Yay for more uses for the ENN backdrop (though in fancy red instead of blue)!

Ya'll need more light though. You can see the strings/tape on the plastic sheeting.

I'd also love to know what the hell is on Paul's head.

It took me a while to recognize Kathleen. Yay use of new set and green screen!

Was it originally that colour? The gold looks a bit like it was painted onto it.

I seem to recall you posting a picture of you filming on that roof a while ago, Graham. So I'm guessing this video took a long time to put together, and greenscreened Kathleen on (as she was wearing the wig on Saturday). Great job on the greenscreening, once again.

I love Paul's outfit. Digging the Willy Wonka ginormous glasses. His hat kinda reminds me of The Oracle from The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

Nice vid.

You guys (or Chrusher) missed a few of the more obvious grizzly deaths from the stars (and never forget what earth itself [or the living things on it] can do!).

Also, the "A9" in the corner sometimes could not be seen, because it was white, and so was the backdrop.

Likewise, I couldn't read "spuzzum."

The acting was still solid, though, as was the writing, and the fan service.

I was pleased.

Props to University of Spuzzum, and for recognizing the International Year of Astronomy. My physics prof keeps going on about it.

Dugg it.

I'm not sure if I was more entertained watching the video, or simpley because I was watching AAAL while it was being filmed.

I loved the captions.

I think my biggest question is why does Matt turn to the side when questioning the international year of astronomy, shes not actually beside him...I mean when Jer addresses her, he is directed at the camera which might imply whatever monitor she could be on would be in front of them?

Matt is addressing a member of the production crew off camera, not Kathleen's character.

How the shit is Hyperion the lamest titan? He's the fucking god of the sun

I was looking off screen at "the producer" for an explanation. There was a shrug there too, but I guess I motioned too late in the shot and it got cut off

Even with a shrug I doubt I'd have interpreted it as being addressed to a producer. Oh well.
