Hey all, on the last Hotspot, they discussed the quick look where Jeff fell off the side of the banister. I listen to it on audio, so can someone please link me to that again?
I remember it the first time and remember the threads of "is Jeff OK?"
@rebel_scum: You have totally misunderstood the context for this. Of course it's not that funny in the context of a forum thread about a pratfall. That's like telling someone the punchline to a joke and then telling the joke. It's not going to hit.
In context it came out of nowhere and people weren't focused on Jeff, they were paying attention to the guys actually streaming, and that's what made it funny. It was a totally absurd thing that just happened out of nowhere in the background. And people laughing at it now remember that context.
If you call attention to the joke ahead of time then the joke doesn't work, but lots of jokes are like that.
@chiefbeef123: I started watching GB early, and it was Ryan's attitude that got me interested. I wasn't a Gamespot person, so I didnt really know the guys except as a name on a review here and there. I used to get most of my news from IGN. But finally someone legitimately happy about video games, at a time when everyone was serving up cutting cynicism out of a fire hose.
