I wasn't around the site when the dual ER's happened.
I first watched the VJ ER about 6 months ago and enjoyed the hell out of it. But after it I needed a break from the combat and forget as much as possible before I watch the BR one. It seems fine, Ryan is at least funny while Brad just bitches the whole time.
Anyways what the hell was the point in doing teams? At some point it is obvious that Team VJ told Team BR about the infinite submachine gun and where and how to get it, they were just to stupid to put it together, then the next episode they told them exactly what to do to obtain this useful item before hand and they went and got it. So what was the point of doing dual teams if they are going to share information and then do the exactly the same things? I was enjoying the ER because they did different things, I don't remember VJ fishing, don't remember them getting the radio from George, it was different, they found different things to occupy their time (whether good or boring). If from here on out they are just giving tips to each other then why am I wasting my time if they then approach the situations the exact same way (all the while VJ are at least entertaining to listen too).
Sorry for the rant but it has really turned me off of finishing it. I heard that BR is at least entertaining during the ending episodes when twists and stuff start to happen but man what a bummer. Of course I'll finish it but probably will just end up deleting all the episodes when I'm done.
