I've had a 'Smart Chop' for like a year. Makes cutting up onions so much easier.

I'm not objecting to Screened segments on the live show, but make them more interesting and varied. Literally watching a movie trailer is kind of sad and I'd feel pretty bad if I was actually paying for that. 
 
(And as for GB being "the site that matters", I'm not trying to be a douche, but Screened has an eighth of the audience of GB, let's not be assholes about the numbers, but let's also not delude ourselves to sound nice and fair. So if the goal is actually making the site grow, I don't honestly think the segment ideas they're pulling are accomplishing that goal.)

Comic Vine is the biggest Comic site on the web, 
 
I agree though that Screened needs to bring something better to the table, I can't really think of what to be honest but something better than Matt Rorie giving something 5 stars and showing 5 puppy's,  
 
That shit has gotten old, what could they do? and if you think of an idea, let them know,  
 
What's the worst that could happen?

Using the viewing stats for the Happy Hour from the sites is a terrible way to judge how popular they are.  A lot of people who visit one WM site visit others, too, but they aren't going to open the stream for every site they visit.  Screened and Tested are pretty awesome, Comicvine does an okay job, and Giantbomb has a legacy of making absolute crap really interesting.

I'm not asking for anyone to delude themselves. I just don't think harping on the relative unpopularity of any of the sites is going to encourage them to make the segments any better. Of course there's realistically the more important sites and the less important ones, but using that to try and marginalize certain sites is sort of crass.
 
For the record I agree that the Happy Hour segments are not being filled well every week and could do with a re-think. I'm just addressing the notion that Giant Bomb should be treated as the main attraction, even if they are.

People wanted merch, This is also a way to let non members know that they can buy T-shirts which a lot of people have asked for, you got an email saying it was available as did I, but non members didn't.  Also, before the Big live show happened there were  requests for cross site stuff, this is the way they cater to that, think of it as a Whiskey show (Which it is) not a Giant Bomb show, so what you don't like some of the other sites others do, and as the sites grow and get their personalities formed then they'll get into a good stride, I think it's going all right so far,  "
I got no email. How many requests? Enough to keep this thing going? Why should I wait for a site to get its personality formed? (Or more likely fail!) This stuff has been going nowhere for a while, especially when the GB crew are away. "
Or more likely fail, that's a nice attitude you have there buckaroo.

When they were playing We Dare and near the beginning Jeff just blurts out "I need this..." I fuckin' lost it.

Not sure how they are measuring that but it is a poor indictment of comic websites.  Not that there is anything wrong with CV - just that for the biggest comic site to only have 2 full time editors ...

The Happy Hour clearly needs more hardcore Dave.

Can't wait till I have a job and I can actually support Whiskey Media. Thanks for the free taste of what I have to look forward to.

All that wait for a We Dare quick look, and well... this was anti-climatic.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

So, my videos are loading slow as shit. Anyone else having the issue? I checked speedtest and my internet is fine. Pages on the site load great, but this video is taking forever to load.

Posted by Chrisauk

We Dare will make for some very funny Youtube clips in the future!  
 
Thanks for an awsome show as always!

Hardcore Dave should be in the new Mortal Kombat game as that one thing that slides out (can't remember what it's called, though).  It's so awesome!

Do you mean Dan Forden, the Toasty! guy?  You can't replace him!
Posted by ShaggE

What's-his-name in the middle of the couch in the first segment looks a LOT like Angus Scrimm when he turns to the side.

Probably not, but just as a cameo in one of the Tower challenges or something would suffice.   
 
Also, after seeing Tom Pinchuk on this (as well as some of his articles on Screened), I'm still wondering what his affiliation is with Anime Vice.  Since he seems to be more freelance, I doubt he does anything but provide (relatively enjoyable) content for Whiskey websites, such as his Watch & Learn articles.

It's really disappointing to see so many nonchalant criticisms on nearly every free HH...
 
Moving on with the show, i want to see Ryan thrusting all day, and i love 01:02:53 so much. I really enjoyed the Wondercon section too, and holy shit, that Tested segment again, unbelievable, and sexier than We Dare by a mile. I could not stop crying with laughter. Thank you guys so god damn much for this!
 
I gotta say it, so much better without calls too. Shirt ads aside, it flowed so much better! i assume that is because it was a free one.

" GiantBomb bits were great. The rest was rubbish - once again. "
Of course the GB segments will be better, because they already do content daily that fits the live show. All they have to do is a short-form Quick Look. Whereas Tested couldn't really make an interesting segment out of some new smartphone, and they can't show iPhone games because Giant Bomb already plays games in their segment, so they have to resort to showing crappy kitchen implements and TV dinners. And they do a fine job of that for what it is. "
Look at the viewer stats during the show: Practically no-one else watches the other streams. I'm not interested in comics, I'm not interested in films or their critics and hate the puerile Tested embarrassments. If only Anime-Vice had a slot!   Honestly, the Tested sections are poor, since Will is not a good presenter. Plenty of other shows make technology look interesting to watch, so they really have no excuse, apart from themselves.  I remember watching on-the Spot with Geoff and Ryan on Gamespot. Those shows (with Rich Gallup and Alex) were so awesome. Why can't they do something like that again? A live hour full of different games and competitions, featuring the viewers? I'd be right up for that!  Also I thought this site had no ads for members. What's with all the t-shirt ads?   "
I disagree with your views and therefore you should shut the fuck up.
Posted by JayDubya

I look forward the most to the Tested bits as they are completely random and for the most part fun.
Apart from the creeper cam a couple of weeks ago the Giant Bomb bits are quite boring.

This week it was a poor showing with T-shirt Commercials that went on for way too long and some uninteresting stuff.

Posted by InfiniteGeass

Glad I don't pay for this. It's good, but I'd rather not pay to see ads on these.
