Echo Chamber:

IOU one title
But I think if they over-characterize their characters they'll back themselves into a corner and not be able to demonstrate tropes in a way that makes sense.

Yeah, I don't think Cerebus Syndrome is the way to go here.

While not to be ignored, characterization tropes are only one piece of a big pie. And there are plenty of framing device tricks for the rest.

Though the story shouldn't reach the point that new viewers suffer Continuity Lockout, either.

I loved the wrap up gag at the end with "those are never funny".

Ah, Adobe AfterEffects.

I'm amazed he didn't mention Sony Vegas (might be because buying it is expensive).

As for hate, because I live this joke so much:

After this one, the shipping can surely begin in earnest. Well, even more earnest than previously.

I sensed absolutely no sexual tension in that video. None at all.

I'm just sayin, there wasn't any in the video. Just discussion of UST. And the title. And a donkey. Wait, there was no donkey-

 93 captainbrass 2, Sun, 12th Jun '11 12:16:30 PM from the United Kingdom
I felt there was UST; maybe I just tend to see these things. Obviously, you're always on a loser arguing about these things because it's very subjective.
"Well, it's a lifestyle"
I agree with Tomu. I sensed no UST either. Considering all the other vids were very good at using the discussed trope In-Universe, this one was a bit of a let down. My last favorite so far, sadly.

I saw plenty of it, it's the title of the dang video afrer all. My fave is still the interview one though

Yeah, the interview one was the funniest and most interesting of them. It had more energy than the rest.

I hope it shifts to a more traditional vlog format.

The interview one was nice because it had legitimate sex appeal and broke away from the existing three person cast.

[up] Yeah, we need more characters. For some reason, the dynamic doesn't seem...dynamic enough. Not overally original or interesting either. No wonder Mr. Administrator is going hard on them.

Hopefully that's a beard I see growing, or we'll be stuck with a Its Okay Its Average show as a main method of publicity. We need non-readers coming back to see it and even getting an account. If it's only Tropers and readers watching them, it won't do very good for our site.

@Robbie Rotten,

Just because it was in the title, it don't meant it was in the show itself. Because it was in the title I kept the whole vid looking for the UST, just to be disappointed as I didn't find any.

Anyway, if we are talking of our favorite episodes, I will go against the trend and chose Dumbass Has a Point instead. Don't know why, but I really liked it.

I do agree the show could use more characters every now ad then. Not necessaries every episode, however.

I found it. They discus it!
