Here's an idea. Cut out all of the shit that no one wants to see. It's just a waste of time and it's not funny.

Pulp Fiction is pretty bad ass. BUT THE TURTLES ARE BADASSER!


Also. Wallace gets raped.

Aaron said...

Here's a better idea. Why not release two versions. It isn't that hard to just cut out the story bits. That's a simple drag and cut. That way, people like me and Marcellus can watch the insightful stuff that you're good at, and the minority who likes your subplots can still enjoy it while you get to enjoy making it.

Ralphael said...

Oh and I also hate this story shit. Nobody likes it.

Sadly, Raphael, your general statement isn't quite correct. If you go to the other blog, you see a lot of support for it, as well as a lot of hate. Mixed reviews: the new standard of today's pop culture.

Ezenwa said...

Also, try until you're blue in the face, but he's not stopping. He's made that clear enough. At least I think so.

Bob said...

@Ezenwa: I've seen the comment sections of both blogs, and it's clear that the majority hates it.

Nice try though.

I wish he'd have just found an artist that wanted to do a comic or Flash Animated series or something instead. It could have even looked semi-professional in that case. Or maybe he should've just started doing another video series (he's got enough of them!)

But, that won't be happening. On the bright side, I guess I freed some time up since I won't be watching these anymore.

"majority" on the net tends to be a very, very, VERY vague term. Crybabies tend to be far more vocal and hyperbolic, making it SEEM like some imaginary majority is speaking

God damn it Bob. Why do you keep doing this? Bad jokes, bad acting, bad effects, bad direction, bad effect, ect. Nobody wants to see this.

Adam said...

@All

He does it because he wants to. Some people find it entertaining. Some don't. Personally I'm in the middle as I don't really care about any of the extra skits but nothing he's done makes me not want to watch for the main material.

Constantly demanding that he change/stop doing this will have no effect. When it comes to shows in any media format the only thing that really matters is ratings, and as long as Bob's got them he will continue on his current path. It's just like voting with your wallet as they say. If you don't want the product as it is, don't shell out for it.

Ralphael said...

@Ezenwa I WILL do it until I'm blue in the face!

Want to know why? Because Bob's early youtube videos were so great, so thought provoking, so timeless, that I still listen to those videos in my truck when I pull them up on my iphone.

Read all of the comments before mine. Do you see anyone defending Bobs MATERIAL? No. You just see people defending Bob as a person, even though i've made no personal attacks against him.

Like I said before, his latest videos are shit. With a few rare exceptions like his black-water episode, and ill keep saying so until they stop being shit.

the thing is guys, he's obviously made it clear he's going to keep moving in this direction. Instead of constantly complaining about that in a big-picture way, why not describe SPECIFIC things that didn't work?

for a few weeks, people have been saying the credits are too long,and that he's looking at his cue cards too much... and it looks like those are two things he's fixed.

so if you do hate it, describe specific kinds of things he's not doing right, instead of just leaving it at "stop it", or "you're bad at this", etc. You obviously CARE enough, otherwise you wouldn't still be here. And he obviously wants to do this - so help him do it in a way you will LIKE.

I liked your game overthinkers back when they were 90% content. I can't watch them anymore.
