Machinima: The Gmod Idiot Box
Hax VS Cheat: Whoever loses, we win.
DATELINE: November 2008, location unknown — From one of the deepest, farthest-flung corners of the internet, a man emerges. His name is Das Bo Schitt, and he holds the power of Garry's Mod
at his fingertips. His mission is simple: Blow. Your. Mind.
Thus, The Gmod Idiot Box
Bo Schitt's acclaimed Youtube series, described by some as "Valve meets Robot Chicken meets explosions
", consists of an episodic mashup of skits that runs the gamut from awesome
to just plain absurd
; they're created using the titular video game mod
and set to all manner of wonderful sound clips and effects. Recurring favorites include:
- The episode intros: Das Bo Schitt and his Metrocop fan #1 deal with such problems as DBS slacking off on new episodes and various Youtube annoyances.
- Harmless Shenanigans(?) with Chuckles the Cheat: Chuckles tries to play a prank, which somehow causes far more harm than intended.
- Everybody Loves Francis
- Pet Peeves The Aggressive Way With Father Grigori: The good priest deals with common grievances in a completely audacious manner.
As of October 24, 2014, the Idiot Box clocks in at fourteen full installments (apparently the latest episode was held up by certain bugs he discovered in Garry's Mod
and had to wait for them to be fixed), and Bo Schitt has created a metric crapton of video shorts (called GIBlets
) that either tie in with the main episodes or stand alone. You can watch his works in chronological order here
. Also, beginning with Episode 12, the series became fully episodic, with the cold opens taking on an episodic arc that started in Episode 10 and continued through Duke Nukem Foreverquest
in which DBS gets a new face, only to have #1 change it back when the Internet detested it but failing to update his driving license thus getting DBS jailed when he attempted to buy liquor with it, #1 busting him out of jail after stealing Gordon Freeman's buggy, and Gordon Freeman Roaring Rampage of Revenge
on #1 after finding out who stole the buggy. Aside from that, characters like Chuckles the Cheat is undergoing character progression- Chuckles has of episode 14 reformed fully and now works as an apprentice of Dr. Hax.
Another movie of Bo Schitt's, Duke Nukem Foreverquest
, is in continuity with the Idiot Box, taking place after the events of Episode 10. It may be the beginning of a series.
Aside from that, Bo Schitt has also started a side series, Youtube Avenue
, which is rife full of Take Thats
This work provides examples of:
- Actor Allusion: Chuckles the Cheat uses quotes from the crazy "Better Safe than Sorry" guy in Left 4 Dead as well as Scout from TF2, both played by the same actor.
- All There in the Manual: BoSchitt's blog contains surprisingly in-depth bios of all of the popular recurring characters.
- Always Beats His Cheater: Dr Hax. Except when he doesn't.
- Anachronic Order: Update Day
- And Now for Someone Completely Different: Episode 14, aside from the opening and the Mac and PC skit, features little to no premise of any Valve settings, plots, or characters.
- Angst Nuke
- Anti-Magic: Dr. Hax can pummel you clean out of God Mode.
- Art Evolution: The author has made increasingly better use of Garry's Mod throughout the series, and it definitely shows. Compare the first episode, which has the HUD and death messages showing, to the latest, which not only has those addressed, but also features stop-motion style lip movement with other stuff going on in real time, a major feat when it comes to a Gmod video.
- Ascended Meme: Sort of. Dr. Hax is available to download into your own game via the Garry's Mod Toybox, and will punish you if you attack him or cheat. As a dismayed Kit Harrison learned in A Smooth Introduction to Garry's Mod, he is nigh-completely invincible, even to the undo button. To truly defeat him, you need to hit him with a monitor. In other words... COUNTER-HAX HIM!
- Ass Kicks You: This is what I do I sit on you, sit on you, sit on you...
- Atomic F-Bomb: Das Bo Schitt himself does this upon finding out his computer's dead and gone in Computer Quest.
- Author Appeal: At this point, it seems obvious that Das Bo Schitt does not like Macs, and prefers PCs. Even so, it also obvious that it has it's own share of problems, which are unavoidable.
- Author Avatar: Sort of. The author's appearances consist of him either getting nagged by Metrocop #1 to create another episode, or getting his butt handed to him by said Metrocop. Otherwise, he doesn't do much.
- Back from the Dead: The RED Demoman in Episode 10.
- BoSchitt himself in Duke Nukem Foreverquest.
- Badass: #1
- Bait and Switch: One stinger of an Everybody Loves Francis sketch starts with what appears to be a re-enactment of a Trix cereal advert, but then gets subverted when the rabbit pulls out a machine gun that shoots Johnny heads that screams in angrish and kills the kids. And it turns out that this is an ad for a Tommy Gun.
- Beam Spam: UberKleiner
- Berserk Button: Walter White is the one who knocks. Got it?
- Dr. Hax does NOT appreciate hackers
- Don't post stupid comments asking where Bo Schitt got his music from. Or Metro Cop will find you.

- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: #1
- Butt Monkey: Renamon, big time.
- Lately, the same goes for Ellis.
- Fred was a single-episode example.
- The representation of Mac computers always seems to fail or break in one way or another, each one a dig at the Mac's flaws (Expensive to replace, etc.)
- Seems to be averted with Renamon lately, with her being used more as a source of comedy than a literal Butt Monkey.
- Another single episode example: Michael De Santa in Episode 14.
- Caffeine Bullet Time: In Update Day.
- Can't Get Away with Nuthin' : Michael De Santa tests his aiming skills on a simple bottle out in the middle of what looks like Tatooine...cue the entire LSPD coming down on him.
- Car Fu: Performed by #1 in the Chaotic 50,000 Subscriber Milestone video. Not a minute later, he tops himself with Firetruck Fu.
- True to form, the series has also given us a few heaping helpings of Train Fu to go with the rest.

- The second KOTH YTP has a callback to the first,with Hank's head still pinned to the moon.

- Caption Humor
- Characterization Marches On: In "The Future of Machinima", Phil seems to be the one suggesting improvement while LP is content with lazy editing and unpopular Lets Play tropes. The personalities between the characters swapped somewhat when spinoff Youtube Avenue came out, with Phil being far more lazy and moronic, and LP adopting more sane and pragmatic traits.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: Hey, would you prosper if Dr. Hax hit you with a CRT monitor every time you cheated?

- Scout knocked before Walter White. Walter slammed the door on Scout's head, then destroyed the body in a bathtub.
- Don't Try This at Home: Hilariously inverted in Episode 8 with a Will It Blend? spoof.
- The Door Slams You: Done twice.
- The first is courtesy of #1. Notable in that standing away from the door won't help. More often than not, he breaks it off its hinges such that it flies into whomever he's chasing.
- The second time is in Computer Quest. Chuck Norris kicks Das Bo Schiit's front door off its hinges when looking for #1. Saxton Hale breaks the wall next to where the door lands. Saxton then moves the door to the wall opening, so he can kick the door at Chuck Norris, hitting him.
- Dope Slap: Dr. Hax gives one to The Duke for his "Unwanted Software Tampering" remark.
- Double Entendre: The RED Heavy slams his fist into the bottom of a table repeatedly, trying to hit a secret button. From Max's point of view, it looks like...something completely different.

RED Scout: Lot of good that gun did ya! *laughs madly*
*BLU Scout shakes fist in anger*
What, you're gonna cry? You're gonna cry now? Yeah, I dare ya, Rage Quit

It got worse after that:
RED Scout: Hey, I'm flyin'!
RED Heavy (on a pedal-power helicopter): *laughing* note
*Camera shows BLU Scout looking up, with RED Scout Ludicrous Gibs
RED Heavy: Oh, this is bad!
- Had the Silly Thing in Reverse: When #1 breaks DBS out of prison by smashing through the wall in a car, he checks his mirror to back out of the hole he made. However, he had the silly thing in drive, and goes forwards through the rest of the prison, into the prison yard on the other side.

- Hilarious Outtakes: In the credits, from Episode 6 onwards.

- Humiliation Conga: Fred experiences an epic one in Episode 8.
- Idea Candle
- If You Can Read This:

- In epsiode 11, several lines of text flashes on the screen for a split second after Mac's death in the I'm a Mac and I'm a PC skit.
LEAVE NONE ALIVE
the Gates of hell cannot hold us
ALSO, COULD YOU PICK UP A PIZZA ON THE WAY BACK? YOU KNOW, WITH ACTUAL TOPPINGS THIS TIME? I MEAN, I KNOW YOU'RE A PUSSY AND ALWAYS ORDER PLAIN PEPPERONI, BUT COME ON, DUDE, WHY DON'T YOU LIVE A LITTLE FOR ONCE? FUCK SAKE

Rochelle: Don't make me get ugly with you!

One of the Combines discovered it, but it got such great response from them that Dr. Breen allowed Bo Schitt to return to his own home outside of the jurisdiction of the Combines so he can continue making episodes. To see to it that he does on a regular basis, Metrocop #1 is quartered in his home.
- Mind over Matter: Dr. Hax, according to Word of God.
- Mistaken for Masturbating: Heavy in episode 10 where Max was getting so annoying with the banter that he presses the "arm" button underneath the table, which doesn't work at first so Heavy continues to mash it and from Max's perspective at the other side of the table, it looks like... Well the trope.
- More Dakka: In The Watchable Subscriber Milestone Video, #1 frags the hell out of a microphone after he gets some rather nasty feedback; he uses so much more dakka that his gun spontaneously combusts.
- Mundane Made Awesome: In Episodes 4 and 5, Hax in the real world of the series are triggered with a cell phone; a dramatic camera effect declares what was just turned on in big, epic letters. Other episodes employ this trope in spades: we have Das Bo Schitt getting hit by a car, Francis tripping over a teddy bear...the list goes on. +EXTREME COMPUTER BUILDING+
- Musical Slapstick Montage: Silent Hill: Homecoming in 30 seconds, to the tune of "Yakety Sax".
- My Car Hates Me: Parodied in Episode 7. A guy tries to escape from #1's wrath, only for a car, a doorknob, and a telephone to all produce the "failed ignition" sound.
- Nightmare Face: UberKleiner near the end of Episode 1.

- Once per Episode: Episode 11 had no Team Fortress 2 in it, until the end credits abruptly stopped signifying it needed to have some TF2 in it, so a brief shot of Heavy with a weird face appears. It then goes back to the credits saying "quota fulfilled".
- Out-of-Character Alert: The RED and BLU spies occasionally make these mistakes when infiltrating other games, such as forgetting that Francis hates everything, or that Solaire of Astora greets with his palms facing out.
- Ow, My Body Part!: Goldblum twice. In Duke Nukem Foreverquest "Ow, my children!" when Duke kicks him in the balls, and in The Tale of Dirty Renamon, "Ow, my checkbook!" when the titular Renamon carjacks him.
- Phil Hartman: Anthony Fantano (voice actor for Mr. Goldblum) seems to have based his Goldblum voice off of Hartman.

- Pressure Sensitive Interface: To make the elevator come down faster, not only does #1 press the button by launching at it with his head, he then wails on it with his crowbar.

- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: The Heavy in Update Day, when he goes absolutely Kenshiro on Rochelle and Francis.

- Rich Bastard: Mr. Goldblum, and he knows it.
- Ridiculously Human Robot: Metrocop #1, according to Word of God (see All There in the Manual above). He is the product of an experiment to create an army of androids to supplement the Combine forces, but he proved to be a Cowboy Cop and the experiment was terminated after his creation in favor of old-fashioned brainwashing. #1 is also a Bunny-Ears Lawyer, so he remains the only robot in the Combine army.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: #1 very nearly pulls one off in Episode 8 when he realizes that the Youtube channel format has been changed.
- Rule of Cool
- Rule of Funny
- Running Gag:
- The recurring appearances of Dr. Hax. If you're hacking something, he'll find you no matter where you are, yell his catchphrase, and smash you with a computer monitor.

If the word "BAN" is on the monitors, one hit will ban the offender from reality for a certain length of time.
- Louis chasing after a jar of pills.

- Three words: bus barrel roll.
- In "Computer Quest", Bo Schitt gets so angry that he reaches into the black letterboxes and physically changes the aspect ratio
- Serious Business: Halloween candy to #1. As evidenced here, he's more than willing to prove it.
- Shoot the Shaggy Dog: A running plotline in Episode 4 involves Chuckles being trapped in an elevator. He tries many different ways of getting out of it and tries to attract the attention of the security camera all to no avail. He finally makes it out via hacking, only to take a computer monitor to the head from Dr. Hax.
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: In episode 6, the "I'm a Mac" segment leads to the Mac bragging about how much better he is than the PC. PC's response?
iDON'T GIVE A SHIT *explodes*
- Slapstick Knows No Gender
- Sophisticated as Hell: In the Update Day video, Duke Nukem (yes, THAT Duke Nukem) says "TF2 is broke as Hell" due to "Unwanted Software Tampering".
- Spam Attack: Dr. Hax takes out Pyramid Head with one of these.
- Spot the Imposter: Remember, the real Francis hates stairs.note
- The Stinger
- This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: The stinger of the Breaking Bad skit. I am the one who knocks, BITCH!
- Stuff Blowing Up: Yes.
- Stylistic Suck: The April Fools shorts.
- Super Strength: #1; justified in that he's a Ridiculously Human Robot.
- Take That: Fred is actually a real YouTube user who posts videos of himself with his voice sped up. This video was the basis for the scene in episode 8, where Das Bo Schitt apparently found Fred quite annoying.
- The Tale of Dirty Renamon was created solely to spite viewers who complained about Bo Schitt's depiction of Renamon in his series, as explained below.
- On the topic of Renamon, the reason Renamon was treated as a Butt Monkey in the Gmod Idiot Box episodes in the first place was because DBS got tired of seeing Renamon everywhere.note
- A Youtube viral comment meme called Bob is also on DBS' hatelist. The latest resurgance of Bob in the comment field of many Youtube videos prompted him to create a short that ends with a sharp Take That against those spreading the viral meme.
- "The Future Of Machinima" delivers quite a few to DarkSydePhil and Machinima.com.
- YouTube Avenue, which spun-off from this, appears to be the beginning of a series entirely dedicated to this, towards YouTube video archetypes. In the guise of a sitcom.
- Take That, Critics!: Negative comments about the "misuse" of Renamon in Episode 8 prompted the creation of this. The description says it all.
- This Is Gonna Suck: In Episode 5, Alyx tries to use the slowmo cheat on Quick Draw Heavy, and still loses, getting thrown across the room into a rack of computer parts. She sees Dr. Hax creeping up behind her, then looks at all the computer monitors on the shelves.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: In Episode 12, Chuckles helps Dr. Hax ban Dennis the Douchebag, a similar cheater to Chuckles. While Chuckles still ends up banned, Dr. Hax decreases Chuckles' ban time to just a week as opposed to Dennis's month.
- Spoofed in Episode 13. While Chuckles' prank did not outright cause the demise of the victim, the victim was a Jerk Ass litterbug who threw an empty bottle onto a train track. The sketch initially plays like this trope is being played straight, with DBS talking about giving Chuckles a break every once in a while, then brutally subverts it when a train derails because of said bottle and crushes the victim.
- Those Wacky Nazis
- Time Paradox: Francis causes one in Episode 4.

- Viewers Are Morons: Parodied in the Cold Open of Episode 7, where an unscrupulous YouTube user asks about a song in an Idiot Box episode, despite the very clear notice that songs are listed in the description. #1 is quick to express his disapproval.
- Wave of Babies
- Weapon of Choice: #1 uses a crowbar instead of the stunsticks normally carried by Metrocops.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: DasBoSchitt himself. He has been accused as being a Renamon hater due to repeatedly killing her in his videos as well as other offensive portrayals in The Tale of Dirty Renamon, but his reasons for doing this are to use her as a vessel against those who use her for porn, making him more of a Renamon defender.
- Wham Shot: From episode 14 the image of Chuckles flinging a monitor like Dr. Hax does
- Word of God: The Bo Schitt Blog
- Wrap Around: The BLU Demoman punches his own head off in episode 10 this way.
