Watch at Cinevore.com.
Where does Optimus Prime’s trailer go when he transforms?
May 27, 2011 at 3:25 am
WOOOO, BEEN FOREVER!!! Love these dont ever stop.
May 27, 2011 at 3:29 am
That illustration looks like the flight pattern of The Giant Claw!
May 27, 2011 at 3:31 am
also, i believe the trailer is a command center.
May 27, 2011 at 3:53 am
You bring up a very interesting point
May 27, 2011 at 3:59 am
How did James came up with the idea about the fly shit?!
May 27, 2011 at 4:03 am
Ummmmm, I think I know the answer: it’s a cartoon. But seriously, these episodes are really a fascinating study in how not to make a comedy vlog-series. They’re overly dominated by Mike’s oversplification and James’s seeming descent into unreality and the other’s barely leave a remark or two before it’s turned back to James/Mike. It was an interesting idea, and I think, honestly, with stronger writing and a more focus plot/cast, it could be really funny and entertaining. At this point however, it’s embarrassing.
May 27, 2011 at 4:04 am
I do enjoy these, but please tell Stephanie to stop doing that accent for her character it brings the whole show down several notches. The humor is in a group of friends talking about classic nerdy things, not stupid characters trying to be like TMZ or something.
May 27, 2011 at 4:07 am
This is clever, I’ve watched your review of Transformers: The Movie a dozen times and you made a good point of bringing up this mysterium in it.
May 27, 2011 at 4:21 am
Anyone else catch the references…lol.
Best one was the whiteboard.
May 27, 2011 at 4:48 am
@NightPhoenix – read the previous post from James. Due to negative reaction about the accent, it will be gone starting on Episode 9. The rest (4-8) have already been made.
Fly shit was pretty random. I think the trailer is sent by Teletran-1 through a space bridge anytime Optimus transforms into vehicle mode. Or maybe it’s the force… or maybe a wizard did it.
May 27, 2011 at 5:06 am
I like the accent on the chick a lot. Its fucking bullshit that you’re getting rid of it because of whiney bitchfucks who have no intelligence.
What the fuck was that fly shit? It made absolutely no sense. If you get rid of anything it should be James’s too off topic ramblings.
May 27, 2011 at 5:11 am
i love that theme music
May 27, 2011 at 5:29 am
that girl that talks british is SOOO bad! like just take her off….please. mike and james know how to make this show entertaining but shes just a fucking annoying bitch
May 27, 2011 at 5:30 am
Hey james im a big fan but i had to post and let you know you left out something major in this episode. You guys failed to mention / remember that Roller was living in optimus primes trailer. Soooo maybe when he transforms roller pulls the trailer around or something. and since the trailer is rollers home no one would ask optimus to use it to help them move either so no fly shit would be needed. 🙂
May 27, 2011 at 5:46 am
What a brilliant concept! You’re all hilarious in your discussions! Thank you very much James & co.
May 27, 2011 at 5:52 am
are you going to do an OverAnalyzers for TMNT?
May 27, 2011 at 6:07 am
The trailer can open it’s roof and the sides open up. Inside there is a weapons platform and a little car thing that can’t transform. It was only used occasionally in very early episodes. Even then it was pointless as Prime was vulernable to any damage done to his trailer components.
I got a more f**ked example for you though.. Omega Supreme
His arms are form a rocket his head is a tank that cruses around a track when the rocket is preparing to launch. The track is stored on his back in robot form. The bulk of his torso is the rocket launch tower.
When Omega launches he leaves the rest of his body behind, but he other components will fucking teleport across space when he wants to transform.
May 27, 2011 at 6:08 am
Anyone who doesn’t understand the fly shit part definitely doesn’t watch much AVGN
May 27, 2011 at 6:09 am
Watch the Silver Surfer episode to understand, by the way.
And why didn’t Starscream just snap Megatron when he would transform into a puny gun for him to fire?
May 27, 2011 at 6:19 am
nice flyshit pepper avgn quote…gotta love cinemassacre
May 27, 2011 at 6:48 am
I can believe you forgot the human drinking robot juice thing in transformers. in the cartoon series like every time they were “back at the base” the kids drank energy juice just like the robots did. how do you feel drinking battery acid?
May 27, 2011 at 6:55 am
itsallgood5423 – any reason to be such a jerk about someone’s friends? Also, how in the hell can you think that’s supposed to be a British accent? Have you never heard an English person?
May 27, 2011 at 7:22 am
I’ll tell ya what is in there, Huge frigg’n guns!
it unfolds one episode to reveal big cannons (like the toy) that fire at the decepticons…untill megatron blows it up
also the smallest autobot lives in there Roller ! he’s awesome
I like the doughnuts idea though, somehow it makes sense to me
May 27, 2011 at 7:33 am
Damn itsallgood5423 thats pretty hash thing to say about some ones friend. Also I think her accent is more of a germen one. Any way james good stuff as all ways. Keep it up oh and please don’t get rid of Stephanie hell I think she is hot.
May 27, 2011 at 7:40 am
I feel this was the best episode yet. James and Mike are the stars (as they should be), yet the others all contributed equally among themselves, too. Also, great to hear the news about the accent, though I hope it was taken well.
May 27, 2011 at 7:45 am
Could you little fanboy fucks quit whining about her accent, it’s perfectly fine and not meant to be taken seriously. It’s not a British accent obviously… fucking troll idiot bastards.
Nice show James and Co. keep up the good work!
May 27, 2011 at 8:14 am
And here I thought the trailer goes into a dimensional rift or portal of some kind, where it waits. Kinda like how the Protoss teleport buildings in StarCraft.
May 27, 2011 at 8:24 am
I actually thought her accent was pretty good. Not perfect but good enough to have people guessing whether it was real or not. I wonder if people are going to miss it by episode 9 since they will be used to hearing it after 8 episodes. Oh well, shes cute and I am glad to see her on the show. It keeps it from being a total sausage fest
May 27, 2011 at 8:27 am
I’m going to spend the rest of my life at a Dunkin Donuts now… I’ve ALWAYS wanted to meet Optimus Prime!
May 27, 2011 at 8:42 am
But Optimus Prime wasn’t always a truck. The transformers adapted into Earth vehicles after crashing here, so how would he already have trailers all over the universe if he only became a truck after he came to Earth? Guess he works pretty damn fast.
And what exactly is everyone’s problem with Stephanie’s accent?
May 27, 2011 at 8:54 am
Know whats sad? I am 75% sure that is James’ wife everyone, so you should all shove a buffalo turd covered sock in it and leave your comments to yourself. He already said newer episodes are dropping it.
May 27, 2011 at 9:07 am
the trailer seems to be taking the same route as the giant claw
May 27, 2011 at 9:11 am
I can’t believe people are still talking about the accent.
Doesn’t anyone around here READ James’ posts? Maybe James has too many 14 year old fans..
May 27, 2011 at 9:21 am
When Mike said that Optimus Prime could bust through the wall like the Kool-Aid Man, I nearly spat coffee on my monitor (not Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, however).
May 27, 2011 at 9:31 am
Maybe episode 9 should overanalyze the accent. Where does it go when she’s not using it? Maybe Dunkin Donuts.
I liked this episode but I have to admit I was surprised no one mentioned roller. It was only in a couple TV episodes, but anyone that had an Optimus Prime toy growing up would know about it.
May 27, 2011 at 9:34 am
@Sullinator: Nah, it can’t be his wife, she doesn’t have any rings on her fingers!
May 27, 2011 at 10:02 am
itsallgood5423 you stupid retard, you sound like sarah palin. I’m English and I can tell you, that accent in no shape or form sounds anything like a British accent no matter what part of the UK you are from.
It’s not that i’m insulted by the comment it’s just plain dumb. I mean are you that reclusive that you have no concept of how people sound from different countries, I mean even the cliche of a british accent is the Queens English when people are imitating us, that’s normally what they do.
I mean it’s like someone doing a French accent and saying they sound American, that’s how different Russian and English sound which is what I think she was trying to do, Russian.
Last but not least, lighten up, it’s just for fun and it’s free entertainment so stop complaining.
May 27, 2011 at 10:09 am
lol, i think you have never heard a german person speaking english! I’m German and i would ran into a chainsaw, if my spoken english sounds like this!:-D She definately has a russian accent.
BTW: I really like the concept of the show! Thank you for entertaining the shit out of us, James! 🙂
This series is still not funny and the other people on this show are still bland.
Like I stated before, this show would need more interesting characters who actually have something to say and have a good chemistry.
A fake russian (who the hell thought it would be british or german?) accent is not the way to go.
Anyway, it is still not funny nor entertaining, I love the AVGN and James Documentaries, but this ist just boring and not entertaining.
May 27, 2011 at 10:18 am
You’re all wrong! Optimus Prime’s trailer is a mobile power distribution source for the Autobots. During battle, Optimus detaches the trailer and transforms, which activates a short-range radio transmitter in the trailer, that in conjunction with a cache of energon cubes also stored in the trailer, can power remotely power the transformers for the duration of their battle or whatever it is they need to do in robot form. They don’t need this functionality while at their base because the ships power source handles these duties. The Decepticons, on the other hand, have power beamed to them by Shockwave in Cybertron through the use of trans-dimensional portals….which is one of the many benefits of ruling over Cybertron.
May 27, 2011 at 10:20 am
To the Angry Video Game Nerd, the clip that you and your friends talking about Transformers. I am a big fan of the Transformers no matter the year or how bad the shows are, but talking about one of the great characters in the transformers universe, Optimus Prime is the icon of all that is good and justices. the trailer that comes with him is a commander centre, from the trailer Optimus Prime can send cart-shaped device called Roller to go behind enemy lines to get information from the Decepticons.
i don’t mind if it was somethink else, but not Transformer please.
like all your clips on the games that you own, keep up the good work.
May 27, 2011 at 10:28 am
Just to clear this up, the accent is not real it is fake – she is acting or playing a character. You would know this if you watched the release party video for this show or seen her is some of Jame’s other work like the pizza taste test…
May 27, 2011 at 10:30 am
I honestly don’t get why people reacted so negatively to the accent.
May 27, 2011 at 10:35 am
Like “GermanDude” said. I’m from Germany too and she has definitely a more polish or russian like accent. 🙂
May 27, 2011 at 10:38 am
You guys should definitely solve the mystery of the Hulks purple pants and why they seem to fit both bruce and the hulk
May 27, 2011 at 10:45 am
The more episodes of this I watch (and I do like them) the more I feel it should just be Mike and James.
May 27, 2011 at 10:46 am
I made it 1:35 seconds in. I think I’m done. The character the girl’s doing is too bad to keep sticking with. Look forward to the other videos at Cinemassacre.
May 27, 2011 at 10:51 am
Wh…what? Fly shit? BOXERS? Way to derail the discussion, JAMES.
May 27, 2011 at 10:52 am
This group just does not have the right chemistry, The topic seemed interesting but something isn’t right. The show feels forced and isnt entertaining.
May 27, 2011 at 11:00 am
The conversation seems awkward.
May 27, 2011 at 11:01 am
I do like how you guys are over analyzing the mystery of Prime’s trailer because it clearly is hiding somewhere when he needs it, and later incarnation of prime don’t have the trailer anymore so they didn’t have to explain where it goes, however I do think you guys didn’t look into what is inside the trailer. Inside the trailer is a mini-command center that he can use like a small portable base and also contains his very own little robot buddy, Rover, which he sends into hostile territory to spy on the decepticons. In a later incarnation of Prime, he becomes Super Optimus Prime, and the trailer actually transforms into his body, while the ordinary prime body just becomes the entire chest area to form into Super Optimus Prime, which is exactly the case for Ultra Magnus. Ultra Magnus actually looks just like regular Optimus Prime only white colored, and just like Prime, he transforms into a truck with a trailer, but everytime you see him, he will always transform into his super version, where he merges with his trailer, and never in his regular white version.
May 27, 2011 at 11:07 am
The show might take a different spin with Mike in the lead as a change of pace. James, I hope you don’t feel pressured to keep pumping out material for an audience you owe nothing to. Just do what you love and don’t give a shit about what people say.
True fans would be happy just t hear updates on the feature film project, knowing that’s where your concentrating most of your efforts. Anything else is gravy.
Thank you for all the free entertainment over the years.
May 27, 2011 at 11:11 am
And maybe let the long haired guy say more, he was a little 5thwheelesque this time
May 27, 2011 at 11:14 am
You lost me at fly shit.
May 27, 2011 at 11:19 am
1st Criticism (this has to do with the fucking commercial, not James): Why does it say “Skip this Ad” in… “x” number of seconds while the counter for the commercial is the same as the counter for the skip message. I appreciate when sometimes you actually CAN skip the message after a few seconds of watching the shit commercial, but you shouldn’t say Skip the commercial if you can’t really skip it.
Can this show please be cancelled?
May 27, 2011 at 11:33 am
Hey guys, before criticizing the same things over and over (the accent and their chemistry), try reading this: http://cinemassacre.com/2011/05/26/a-note-about-overanalyzers/
These first 8 episodes were filmed together so they will all be the same in terms of characters’ accents and chemistry. But if you read that post by James, you’ll find out they heard our criticism and are doing away with the accent. As for the chemistry, maybe the other guys will be more comfortable after the first day of shooting and this series will improve drastically once the original 8 episodes are up.
So if you don’t like them, come back once the next batch starts at episode 9. Hold your criticisms and just be appreciative of the fact that they listened to us and are doing away with “the accent.” I think thats pretty cool and thats why we all love Cinemassacre.
May 27, 2011 at 11:44 am
I love commenters that tell you to hold your criticism. Isn’t that the whole point of comments? To discuss what worked for you and what didn’t?
I tend to agree with the commentary about the task being too big. There are definitely three strong cast members and two weak ones. I don’t need to name names.
This is a premise which seems like a good idea, but I think it’s turning out to be really hard to pull off. Not saying I don’t appreciate the attempt and the extra content, it’s growing on me a bit, just being honest.
May 27, 2011 at 11:45 am
*cast not “task”
May 27, 2011 at 11:48 am
The first half of the episode was good, the rest was weird. I liked the topic but when you mentioned fly shit James it killed my interest. It was a really stupid idea and it went on for so long it made it difficult to keep my attention. Then it started to get better again and then Dunkin’ Donuts has to be involved.
The conversation gets so weird sometimes that it’s not entertaining anymore.
May 27, 2011 at 11:52 am
This episode was much better! I was ROLLIN when I heard Kool-Aid Man bustin through the wall! Nicely done! Much funnier than the last! Throughout the whole episode, I kept thinking about that damn trailer. How stupid!? Once again, great job!
I like how there was some footage from the transformers to accompany the conversation. It added to the episode. Nice addition!
Someone else added a possible topic: Bruce Banner’s pants! That’s funny! I want to see an OA episode on grooming Yosemite Sam’s Mustache! Doesn’t he trip over that thing?
FLY SHIT????? WTF????? that made no sense, it doesnt matter if she quits the accent, if you were actually listening to everyones comments, then you would cancel this show because it sucks ass. I’m sorry, but anytime i see that there is a new episode of this show up it makes me just want to leave the site but i dont want to do that because everything else on this site is great, hell I’d rather watch Old AVGN’s a 100 times before i ever watch this crap again.
May 27, 2011 at 11:58 am
May 27, 2011 at 12:12 pm
the only thing wrong with the show is the girl. maybe if she didnt use that fake accent it would be better… who knows
all i know is she is not funny and it would be better without her
Wow, before i see the episode i just wanna say this is exactly the first thing that came to my mind you could analyze right after i saw the first episode. A lot better topic than the last one. So now im going to see the episode and i expect it to be good.
May 27, 2011 at 12:14 pm
I can’t believe some of the things I read on here. It’s honestly depressing that alot of people say they hate it or don’t like it. No that’s fine, but when someone says cancel this show or it’s a weak performance that’s what gets to me. Some even say how you should do it. James has been dumping a truckload of entertainment for everyone for years and hasn’t asked a penny to be viewing any of his material on here. His life revolves around videos that he loves to do, and shares with his “fans” and they snap at him. Cancel this show? Why? Just don’t watch it. Simple. People are making a mockery, criticizing etc at James, Mike and others mostly because he doesn’t scrape out an AVGN all the time. If you’re gonna try and “kill” what his true fans love (and not to mention James) then I say go get a real life. Because this is James’ life. To make movies, entertain, and make people happy by his videos. Stop bashing at the man for experimenting with videos (which perhaps this is what this might be). James if you read this all I can say, you’ve really helped molded me into the person I am today and I haven’t even met you. That’s a powerful effect that you give to your fans. I hope that you can easily dodge these bullets and never stop doing what you wanna do. I’ll be more than happy to donate financially into your movie to help you achieve your feature film dream. Of course this goes to Mike as well, another great person that spends hours doing title cards. I’m just glad he loves what he’s doing, any amateur would just give up on their dream. So James and Mike, thanks for everything you have done for me (indirectly) and I hope to see more of your talent in the future.
May 27, 2011 at 12:18 pm
Bad arguement…the first Transformers movie took place in downtown LA….no dunkin donuts in LA or anywhere near LA…I would say Starbucks.
Also the fly shit tangent made no sense…..maybe its the coffee talking!
May 27, 2011 at 12:19 pm
Get rid of the girl. She has 0 charisma.
May 27, 2011 at 12:23 pm
I have always wondered where the web is in Spiderman. I mean, where does his body make it or store it, is it kind of in the blood stream or apart of his skin? Wouldn’t his wrist be bulging or something because of the amount of web that hs shoots out has to be stored somewhere.
May 27, 2011 at 12:27 pm
I CANNOT stand that girl. everything about her is annoying, and she is utterly stupid. The other 2 guys are alright, but this would seriously be better if it was just james and mike, and I’m not just saying that cause im a fan of them, but there is like wasted minutes because of the girl, and the other guys don’t contribute much, they just confirm whatever james or mike say.
May 27, 2011 at 12:30 pm
Well, i just finished watching it now and im sorry to say i didnt find it funny or entertaining at all. Its just bad, it was a very good topic but not developed the right way. Im sorry, but i think nobody is gonna miss this show when it gets canceled. Some other guys have said it, the group just dosnt have the chemistry, Mike and James have perfect chemistry, but the other 3 guys are just out of place, they cant keep up so my first advice would be to replace them. The girl fake accent is annoying, her devil blood red nail polish make me wanna puke and she doesnt say anything interesting at all. As for the other 2 guys, sorry, they lack personality.
Im glad to read the girl is gonna lose her accent from episode 9, i just hope i can stand that long because another 5 episodes with that accent will feel like eternal …
May 27, 2011 at 12:32 pm
TO THOSE WHO EITHER WERE CONFUSED BY OR DISLIKED THE “FLY SHIT” PART: I think James was referencing one of my favorite AVGN episodes ever and that is the Silver Surfer episode. In the episode, the nerd is trying to describe to the audience just how difficult the game is. He said something like, “This game is so hard, it will actually be easier to go outside in a thunderstorm and try to dodge rain. It’ll be easier to walk barefoot without your toes or heels touching the floor. It’ll be easier to pick Fly Shit at peppers, while wearing Boxing Gloves!” Maybe it’s because I’m such a huge fan of his that I immediately knew what he was referencing as soon as I heard it, but all you guys just hating, don’t just automatically assume that James is saying something incredibly stupid or random or senseless. He’s not stupid. He says things for a reason. From watching and listening to his videos and interviews, he didn’t seem like someone who just says random things to try to be funny. He puts some thought into what he says before he says them and just doesn’t blurt them out, I think. LIke, there were videos where he quoted “American Movie”, and when I heard these lines, of course, I didn’t find them funny or I wasn’t able to make any sense of them, but it’s not like I disliked what he said and thouight it was a stupid line. I just assumed, “oh\, he must be referencing something that I hadn’t watched. I guess I have to watch it to get the joke or the line.” I think James assumed that he could believe us when we tell him what huge fans we are and how much we love his AVGN videos. He probably thought we knew his videos so well that we would get the Fly shit reference right away, but I guess that wasn’t the case this time.
May 27, 2011 at 12:33 pm
Do you have a picture of a Tsukasa figure from Lucky Star, wearing a cape, on your wall?
that girl is so so so so annoying… why she has to be in it?
May 27, 2011 at 12:34 pm
and dunkin donuts seriously? I get this is all joking, but that just sounded so stupid, and her deliveries sound like they’re coming from a 5 year old kid who hasn’t developed a sense of humor yet. At least write her lines or something, if she’s a friend and you can’t get rid of her. Acting lessons? I don’t know, this show would be so funny if I didn’t have to anticipate her opening her mouth.
I give up on this show and will come back for episode 9 (the new season without the accent). It’s pretty risky filming eight shows back to back without ever having tested the premise of the series.
When people stop lending advice it doesn’t mean that they accept you, it means that they’ve given up. Peace out.
May 27, 2011 at 12:40 pm
Alright. I watched it again an even I agree with the others.
The woman is annoying and the guy in the turquoise suit doesn’t even look that serious. He really tries to not laugh about the stuff you guys are talking about… always grinning… that scares me.
James and Mike only would be awesome. Because we all know and love them. To me they’re the only ones who make actual jokes.
May 27, 2011 at 12:46 pm
If James really believes his fans have a point when they say she should lose the accent, why doesn’t he just skip the rest of the episodes until episode 9? And if he doesn’t agree with his fans, why the heck did he change it in the first place?
May 27, 2011 at 12:47 pm
I think this would have been better without the fly shit stuff.. it just appeared to have come out of nowhere. The Dunkin’ Donut was fine since the conversation leading up to it made sense.
May 27, 2011 at 12:52 pm
I think the problem that stems from the girl’s accent is that we all know it’s fake. In at least two other videos James has posted we hear her talking normally. This creates a distraction and makes the whole conversation seem forced and phony. Also the two guys that sit across from Mike appear uncomfortable and is hard to watch. This series I believe was a good idea but needs to be retooled.
I did laugh though the way James’ mentioned fly sh*t and pepper, lol
May 27, 2011 at 12:56 pm
What if Optimus’s trailer is a charger. He has the Matrix after all. Maybe being in battle mode uses a lot of energy and the trailer charges him back up when he’s in semi mode. That’s why Hot Rod gets his own trailer in the movie when he becomes the leader after Optimus dies.
May 27, 2011 at 1:16 pm
There are super strong magnets on the trailer who only react to the hidden magnets on Prime, which he can turn on/off. It travels faster than the speed of light and only materialize when it’s in a close range of Prime. Ella from Monkey Shines are kept in it.
May 27, 2011 at 1:25 pm
still not really digging the 5-person format. I think Mike and James really do have the only good chemistry going. The other 2 guys seem to barely be involved, and the chick just seems to be trying way too hard… though I must admit, the only thing that made me laugh in this episode was that very last line.
Just to jump in on the topic, I think the trailer is a ridiculous idea. He might as well not have it. The trailer would be better if Optimus actually used it for something in robot mode. It wouldn’t even have to transform. He could just swing it around like a 2×4, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan style. Screw that sword. There’s more fun in the brutality of just beating another robot to screaming pieces with a big hunk of truck.
May 27, 2011 at 1:26 pm
It’s ok, but not great replacement for AVGN.
May 27, 2011 at 1:39 pm
yea i didnt find that funny or even insightful in comparison to the Batman and Robin poles episode.
a bit irked that no one brought up how the trailer is actually used for things. theres a little robot inside the trailer that helps Optimus. kinda like an RC car that he sends in to get into certain places.
May 27, 2011 at 1:41 pm
So just because it was something stupid he said in AVGN makes it relevant in this this case? No. It is a total derailing of an otherwise quirky and enjoyable discussion.
A subtle reference would have worked, but the 2 minutes spent discussing something 90% of the people wont understand right away totally ruined it for me.
May 27, 2011 at 1:46 pm
I skipped the entire flyshit part.
May 27, 2011 at 1:48 pm
i think the new episodes are pretty good, its very low production just friends sitting around a table bullshitting, but they filmed it made i a little “show” and gave it to you guys to watch, please dont complain, if you dont like it then just say that, but theres no need to declare the other 3 members of the show are “horrible” or “wasted space”, just enjoy it….anyway, great job guys! keep up he good work! =)
May 27, 2011 at 1:50 pm
He has things on his wrists that take little like ink cartridge type things of web. It was different in the movie, in the movie his body produces it.
May 27, 2011 at 1:54 pm
666 on the peg board behind james at 2:57
May 27, 2011 at 1:57 pm
lame, good try though
May 27, 2011 at 2:05 pm
I think James was pissed off at the constant sass he was getting from people about how he makes videos, so he filled one of his videos with fly shit and made us all eat it. Or there isn’t much to talk about with the trailer, it just kind of appears and goes away, so he decided to crack some jokes for awhile to fill the dead air, and the others ran with it for some insane reason.
May 27, 2011 at 2:07 pm
Personally, I liked the Fly shit reference from the AVGN Silver Surfer episode. What’s the big deal that he said it? In my opinion, the fly shit was just a nice reference to AVGN. Since it’s not supposed to be serious, he put it in there to give everyone a little piece of AVGN nostalgia. Anyway, I liked the episode. Peace.

Seriously….what the hell is Susie even there for? If that isn’t her real accent….have her drop it, I find it highly annoying. Then she goes on this random tangent about the ‘rockets’ in Optimus Primes’ trailer needing gasoline….and then even goes as far as saying that Optimus needs it too? Ok, so when is the last time you saw a Transformer making a pit stop at a gas station… they don’t need fuel. Like what the hell are these other people thinking in these episodes? Mike and James please keep doing what you are doing(minus the boxing glove and fly shit comment…it really made no sense right then), but get these other bozos in there out of the picture. It’d be better off with just the two of you film critic style than this round-a-bout in the office thing you have going on now.

lebutzki made a comment erlier asking where spiderman stores his web inside the body. I may have an answer to that. I think it’s kinda obvious that he stores it in his testicles, which are somehow directly conected to his wrists, and the spider sense is actually a sense of arousal

Dammit James! You derailed a coherent discussion with an obscure AVGN reference! It did get back on track though. Even though this was recorded the same day as the others, it feels like the show’s coming together and is getting better each episode. Were they recorded in the order they’re released?
May 27, 2011 at 2:23 pm
Jim messed this up with fly shit. I liked the (was it dunkin) donuts part LOL. Anyway, we all know what happens with the trailer, what’s inside, and what’s its purpose. So screw all of yourses ideas.
May 27, 2011 at 2:25 pm
Personally, I could go either way with the accent, It doesn’t bother me at all.
May 27, 2011 at 2:27 pm
I think a scared family is inside the trailer. They signed for it and moved in, and later that day optimus came to earth and attached it to his truck ass and drove them around unknowingly, and when he transforms the family comes out of their frightened huddle and peeks outside just in time for optimus to attach them to his truck ass again and drive off. hopefully they have enough food…who knows…might be a dead family after a season or two of the show.
May 27, 2011 at 2:38 pm
now how the fuck can his trailer be a dunkin donuts
May 27, 2011 at 2:51 pm
OMG THIS SUCKS SO BAD

I haven’t been able to warm up to this series yet. James and Mike continue to stand out and the other characters are just pointless. Matt is really quiet most of the time and when he does speak, he just isn’t that funny. Lee creeps me the fuck out, I don’t know why, he just does. Susie’s character is just baffling to me. I agree with a lot of other users about Susie’s voice. If she didn’t have a Russian accent, her character would be fine. The accent just annoys the shit out of me and serves no purpose.
I have mixed feelings about the Silver Surfer reference. In my opinion, the Silver Surfer episode of AVGN is by far the best episode. However, James’s reference to it was so random that you either thought it was funny, stupid, or just plain strange. I thought it was a funny and stupid which I’m sure was the point.
I do have a couple of questions about the series for either Mike or James:
1) Is this scripted? If so, who writes the script?
2) Why, in the name of fuck, does Susie have an accent?
3) Is Lee a serial killer because he creeps me the fuck out? He just has that weird look on his face the whole time and it just looks like he’s up to something.
May 27, 2011 at 3:07 pm
LOL, great topic!
May 27, 2011 at 3:17 pm
So the accent question and script question were answered on this link: http://cinemassacre.com/2011/05/26/a-note-about-overanalyzers/
I had not seen this yet when I wrote my last comment.
I would still like to know what is wrong with Lee…

Excuse me, Mr. Rolfe,
You have provided nothing but free entertainment for me for the last five years. I have done nothing to support you as an individual or person other than watching your videos and commenting on occasion. However, as a fan, I am entitled to tell you what to do and chew you out when you don’t do it.
You are and will always be the Angry Video Game Nerd, so you’d better get back to making more episodes of that tired, one-dimensional show and not ever try to take anything in a different direction creatively or I WILL bitch you out for it.
I’m sick of people thinking they can possibly provide more than one form of entertainment. No. You made your name on the AVGN, so that’s who you will be for all of time, and damn you if you ever try to do, think, or say anything different.
I am your “fan”. You did not please me, therefore, fuck you and get rid of this content.
(This comment was both dripping with and oozing from sarcasm if you didn’t pick up on that.)
I for one, love the idea behind this show, and while certain aspects need work, I’ll be damned if I’m gonna think I have the right to tell James what he does or doesn’t need to do.
It’s not as though a series like this would “lose” me as a fan. I just wouldn’t watch it anymore if I didn’t like it.
May 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm
While I agree with SOME of the things you’ve said, you are not entirely correct.
James depends on fans for views and popularity. This is directly proportional to the income James makes from companies wanting to advertise on such a popular website. This in turn affects marketing and influences who sees James’s work. The more people that see it, the more popular it gets, the more companies take notice, etc… So if the fans don’t watch, everything changes. I would be shocked if James didn’t want people to give their honest opinions about whether they like a show or not. I certainly wouldn’t want people kissing my ass all the time and telling me that everything I do is great. That’s not an excuse for people to go apeshit on James when he does something other than AVGN but it should allow for them to voice their opinions. There are way too many people on here that do both.
May 27, 2011 at 3:41 pm
@ Darkquest Deathunter: Mike’s “oversplification”? I don’t care if he is stoned, because there’s nothing wrong with that.
May 27, 2011 at 3:46 pm
thoughtless, if you took the time to read james’s posts you’d have read
“We filmed the first 9 episodes in one sitting” Meaning susies accent is here to stay for THE REMAINING SIX EPISODES!
He said when they start filming the second batch they’ll remove her accent since there is more complains than compliments over it.
May 27, 2011 at 3:48 pm
Seriously guys, there’s some major tools posting here. This is not meant to be taken seriously obviously, if you can’t pick up on that, then your hopeless. Quit your fucking whining and go sit on a cactus. Your annoying.
The show is perfectly fine. The accent is fine, the other guys are just fine too. If you took the other 3 characters away then you would lose the whole point of the fucking show. A bunch of people overanalyzing shit! These whiny bitches need to shutup and stick to Twilight for their entertainment.
Dont change the Russian accent in Ep. 9, that would ruin the show!
May 27, 2011 at 3:53 pm
@buckfutter hahahaha your screen name is awesome
Trebek – Let’s see your answer…. I guess that’s your wager….. a buck…

Connery – Oh I think ya do Trebek. I think ya do indeed.
Trebek – Thanks for joining us….
Connery – BUCK FUTTER!!!

I just… can’t get into it. I’ve tried to get into every episode so far, but I just can’t. The other three characters just aren’t funny at all. I actually like feel embarrassed when I watch one of these episodes for some reason.
I don’t care for this series, but that doesn’t make me a “tool”. Many of the comments here are on the silly side, but just because I have a differing opinion than you doesn’t mean I need to “quit fucking whining and sit on a cactus”.
I realize taking away the other three characters would take away the point of the show, but the other characters are very dry (to me), and really put a damper on what otherwise might be a funny web-series. The accent girl is very chessy, and the other 2 guy characters act like cardboard cut-outs reciting dialogue. If the show featured 3 other characters with some acting experience and personality instead of what I assume are just 3 random friends of James/Mike, it would probably be much funnier.

May 27, 2011 at 4:25 pm
@gattz- it’s funny you just assumed I was speaking about you and your comments. Get over yourself, If you don’t like it thats fine…. it is a free country. Your thoughts were well thought out and I can almost understand where your coming from. It’s pretty obvious that you and some others were not where my comments we’re directed.
May 27, 2011 at 4:43 pm
First off, I agree with you on “Suzy”. She’s american – and, I’m just wildly guessing here, James’ wife (please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong) – and she’s not russian in any way or at least she doesn’t have a russian accent. It’s just a character.
The only ones that contribute anything at all to this is James and Mike. Everyone else either don’t have ANYTHING to say or EVERYTHING they say is BORING and contributes nothing at all.
Now on to the rest of your comment:
So you call yourself a fan and you still have no idea why James isn’t doing any more episodes of AVGN at this time?
Sure, there’s a difference between a fan and a fanboy. A fan should criticize their idols because it shows that you care. A fanboy just loves everything no matter how bad it is.
The problem with your comment is that you seem to think that it’s actually James’ obligation to change just because you’re a whiney little bitch.
Here’s a hypthetical scenario for you: Let’s say that James only did AVGN episodes. If he would only do AVGN episodes he wouldn’t have time to make the AVGN movie. If he still were to make the movie anyways, he wouldn’t have time to make AVGN episodes and the site would grind to a halt for months. Add to that, the episodes would probably get boring really fast seeing as how you can only do so much comedy and original jokes with a character as the AVGN who’s built in such a specific way.
It’s free entertainment. If you don’t like the way it’s handeled, piss off. And I don’t think James would care one bit about a trolling so called “fan” even if you did stop watching his videos. Face it dude, you’re not really that important to the survival of James Rolfe’s work or the AVGN. Not one bit.
You’re just a whiney little bitch.
May 27, 2011 at 5:14 pm
I liked the episode, but if I may add my suggestions.
1) The accent is really unneccessary; what purpose does it play in the episode? Also, there are videos on youtube of American films with people doing (bad) foreign accents and vice versa…
2) The fly shit reference, personally of course, was not funny. Again, not sure what the purpose of that was, but I think you were trying too hard to be funny.
To add light, I still like these episodes are cool and imaginative.

James’ wife’s name is April
May 27, 2011 at 5:31 pm
LOL Susan scored some points at the end of the video. xD
“Or fly shit.”
May 27, 2011 at 5:45 pm
this was so horrible i didnt even finish it, complete garbage, even mike knew it, you can see it in his face when James goes completely off his fucking rocker talks about fly shit. and from that point on its just a spiral of the others trying somehow to justify that off the wall statement till the episode dwindles to complete crap.
as a whole i dont like this idea, its overly convoluted with so many people and the Russian accent just makes the girls comments seem forced, i wanted to give it some time to see if it would get better, and i thought the easter bunny one was all right, and showed leaps and bounds improvement over the first episode, but this one actually sucked worse than the first and i thought that one was a piece of shit!
if this was uploaded by anyone else aside from the man credited for the AVGN then no one would give a shit, and thats really what it deserves, to rot in the bowls of the internet, ignored, and irrelivant
May 27, 2011 at 5:49 pm
LOL these are great 😀
May 27, 2011 at 6:17 pm
One word: Why?
May 27, 2011 at 6:19 pm
this was ok, but i rather just see james and mike talking about this subject and it would be much funnier. No scripts just on any normal day. dont know if they use scripts but it seems like it
May 27, 2011 at 6:29 pm
I love it! No matter how obsurd a theory is every analyzer MUST pretend it’s very deep and methodical.
Rule #1 in improv: You can’t say NO or reject your partner’s ideas in the middle of a performance. Keeping a straight face will be hard… But I’ll laugh my butt off!
