I learned that comics are the last thing on CBSi's mind.

That interview was the most awkward thing I've seen in a while : (....

And the other comic segments we're only to mock them.

@Korosive: That guy was the ultimate douche, just wanted to get his dick wet by the 'treat em mean, keep em keen' mantra and forgot he had an interview to do. At first I thought ah, he's just being disgruntled as a joke, haha..still awkward if you can't pull it off right (which he wasn't) but no, he was just super obnoxious, especially at the end when he was getting 'cut off.'

@RazielCuts: For Sara to be treating him the way she was, I'm sure he may have pissed her off off-camera or something.

But to be fair, he set up his schedule, traveled in, brought his stuff, and was completely rushed and unable to finish his explanation or on camera art work.

Am I alone feeling that the GB crews lack of interest in comics (besides Ryan) hurts comicvines appearances? I'd hate to see the site go the way of AnimeVice.

Things that I already knew but were reinforced by the BLLSL 3:

  • Jeff is impressively, almost frighteningly good at bullshitting (see older video of "GB is the new Wikipedia" for the best examples of this)
  • Tony G, as much as I like him, doesn't seem as comfortable on camera for live stuff as Sara or the GB crew. This applies to Alexis as well.
  • People on the internet get real weird whenever a woman shows up on camera.
  • John T. Drake is a charismatic motherfucker and an absolute PR machine.
  • People on the internet get real, REAL weird when the woman that shows up is Dave's sister Karen.
  • Norm Chan is great, but at his best with Will Smith around to act as a foil

This is because he was strongly aware of the amount of padding involved between segments (and during them for that matter) He didn't have the amount of control he's used to either because the production side were constantly goofing around lol

The big live, live show live is a strange beast though. It's like this odd thing that exists between a hastily produced, live program with little to no scripting/format and improvisation. It's entertaining in short bursts and is fun to tune in and out of...but I wouldn't sit and watch it as if I was hanging around with them on my armchair.

I tried to watch long segments but it came across as being a tad bit awkward for me personally. Even during Breaking Brad, when I had seen him fuck up the first section of the Trails HD challenge time and time again, having to restart completely to gain the achievement - I thought to myself "Is he failing on purpose to pad this fucking beast out? These reactions seem forced".

I dunno - maybe it's best if they keep it this way because it says everything that needs to be said about Giant Bomb. Talking absolute shite is half of their appeal to most.

The worst bit of padding was when Norm made that quip about "China Don't Mind" and Ryan said he was going to blackout because it was so funny, it made me want to stop watching. At least Jeff seemed natural when he was doing his bits, maybe he should host big live events in future.

1) Brad and Eric Pope are awesome.

2) Eric Pope exists.

3) John Drake is a dick. But in a good way (I think).

4) Warlords is a fun game.

5) Jeff has mad improv skills.

6) The upcoming Jurassic Park game features are going to be good.

7) Swedish people can't come up with relevant topics of discussion.

8) Giant Bomb is pretty damn good.

that I was pleased with how this went. I was elsewhere a lot if something didn't interest me, except I purposefully left while Brad was doing his run. It was both tiring to watch but also it is an old habit of mine that if I don't watch, something good will happen(mostly football) I kept checking back on Brad but still missed it. So it worked! So pleased when I saw the comments...

I think it's because Karen is a person that everyone legitimately likes, personality-wise, but a lot of internet folk don't know how to express that without being creepy as fuuuuck. Compare and contrast with Sara, who comes on camera and everyone is knowingly creepy, just because she's a girl.
