I enjoyed Jeremiah's appearance on the Beastcast, and was hoping to hear him on a Quick Look or other Giant Bomb content. He seems like a very nice fellow.
Will Jeremiah be doing any Quick Looks?
I think characters are best left on podcasts/play dates/UPF. When they actually cover video games, like in Quick Looks, I'd rather they tone down the goofs and actually give me their impressions of the game.
Almost nothing is worse than an uninformative Quick Look dominated by a goof. Biggest offender probably being that Black Mesa Quick Look where Dan pretended to have never heard of Half-Life and acted like Black Mesa was an original game with oddly old-fashioned FPS design.
On the other hand, the Rogue Warrior Quick Look where Jeff talks about cock-breath commie motherfuckers worked, but only because he continued to comment on the game while swearing like a sailor. It can be done, but doing an elaborate goof while running a Quick Look is a real tightrope walk.
I love Jeremiah! But I think this is one of those things where we think we know what we want, but we really don't. Having Jeremiah or Margaret sit in for any extended periods of time will oversaturate the humor so fast that before you know it you'll be thinking "Alright, yeah maybe this doesn't work as a whole 40minute shtick"
I don't know what people are implying with Jeremiah being a "character," it just seems a little mean and above the Giant Bomb community to name-call like that. But I do think that the Quick Look format is below his sophisticated standards. That's more for the popcorn dumpster people.
I honestly think it's a huge misstep they haven't already hired Jeremiah. If they keep relying on him to just be there as an unpaid guest, then you know he's going to get swept up by Kinda Funny or Polygon. He has so much charisma and latent talent that GB's just been taking for granted.
@alavapenguin: He's a CBS Podcaster who has a salary and a wife and has a very masculine deep voice and just sounds really put together. He doesn't bother himself with such concerns as knowing who wrestlers are. If your mom met Jeremiah, she'd be really impressed with him and ask you why you weren't more like Jeremiah.
