I lol'd at the RROD thing, mostly because the actors were actually pretty good. Also the pillow quest, I didn't really laugh out loud, but I thought it was pretty funny. The other stuff... meh. I didn't get the "sit-com" thing at all.
As many before me have agreed, the Pillow Quest was good, the rest was a little uninspired. As only the second episode, they still have time to get things together, so I'm still giving it a chance, but hopefully they'll get their groove on sooner rather than later.
Also: Does anyone else think they have some sound issues? Some characters' voices come across fine, while others seem too quiet/muffled, where I can't really understand what they say at the same volume level.
I have the same Zelda shirt as the guy from the Gamer Gang. Speaking of that guy, his audio was lower quality than everyone else's. Just saying.
And I didn't think it was all that funny. Especially the red-ring of death thing. That's not historical and anyway, most of the crap they "investigate" on those shows is clearly stupid and unsupported by real science. RRoD is real and lots of us have experienced it first hand. The portrayal of the "real-life story" girl as a weirdo were-wolf conservationist makes it stand out as inappropriate even more. I'm not criticizing it for not faithfully recreating the source material, I'm just saying that using RRoD in this context creates a weird disconnect from the parody. In other words, it just didn't make sense. So... not funny.
Pillow Quest was probably the best, but I was underwhelmed nonetheless.
It does feel a little like they used up all their good ideas in the pilot/competition video, as at the end of the day the second episode wasn't as good and this third one was worst again. Having said that I'm not going to simply give up on the series entirely, it's obvious they're capable of better. Anyone can have an off day.
Obviously the Pillow was chosen, The Pillow always was the chosen one!
It always is the Pillow.. Oh and to think Pillow has the common decency to act a bit normal. NOOOOO! So you are at the bar with Pillow..guess who gets the ladies PILLOW!
Pillow doesn't even have to try! And now pillow gets a freaking own video game..
