You have failed us.
Echo Chamber is seeking a spec script for an episode in Season 2.

If you like the show—or if you think you can do better—you should seriously consider entering something.

Replying to Fast Eddie from this post

I think it was the fact that they tackled a very meta trope as their first episode, so it was a bit hard to figure out what was formula, and what was trope. Obviously now that I know how the show works, it would make more sense on a rewatch, but as a first one, I think it's a tad confusing.

The reason that made it seemed like it was dragging was because of the prolonging of certain gags that didn't make as much sense as they should have, due to reasons stated above. If that makes sense.
Hmm. I suppose everyone involved in script production could have internalized the continuity to the point where things make sense to them that don't make sense to newcomers.

Continuity Lock-Out is something to watch out for.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
You have failed us.
That's a classic problem, and one reason why I don't plan on making the Echo Chamber world much more complex than 4 characters. In five minutes, we'd have to explain who everyone is every episode. We just don't have time for that.

There are other characters who'll recur, but the core cast won't endure much expansion or contraction.

Well, I fully support whatever plot-related decisions being made, so yeah. Nice improvement for Psycho Ex-Girlfriend vid. It's really gripping

I laughed loudly when the last line from Zack was : why couldn't she see my boner?

And so the plot thickens. I like.
I defintiely think this was the best episode so far. It's gone from amusing to laugh out loud in some places. Great job, guys! grin

It was certainly better. I still kind of think that the acting is a bit asymmetrical in terms of "intensity." I don't really buy Dana's performance for some reason. I'm not certain why but something just seems slightly off...

Shannon's is so deliberately over the top that it works because of how over the top it is. I guess it's just hard to play the Straight Man in these kinds of situations.
Loved the new episode.

Highly amusing! Dana was in top form.

Remember, if you don't have the guts to kiss someone on camera, there's always the masking tape over the lips trick~

By the way, can anyone add any more tropes to Episode 5? The format is a little off with the videos because of the small list.

I've made a Fridge.Echo Chamber page and added that to it.

I really like these. Very good production values for a Web Original show.

From the last episode, I particularly like the way they mentioned that Psycho Ex-Girlfriend is Played for Laughs with girls and Played for Drama with boys, then inverted it with Shannon and Zack.

Also, Tom really takes another level in jerkass with the Eiffel Tower story, but it's completely congruent with Shannon saying he's weak and needs to be pushed around: presumably she steamrollered him into the proposal and he never found the willpower to speak up about it.

I reckon there's already an episode planned for Not So Stoic, to show that Dana has her own weirdnesses too.

Shannon will kidnap Dana and/or Zack in the season finale. Tom must save them. There will be kissing of some sort.
...I hope not. That sounds a bit...too dramatic.
The whole scheme falls apart and ends rather disappointingly - in an episode about Anticlimax.

The first one I saw was Unresolved Sexual Tension, and I think they made it work. The way Tom freezes, as if in terror, after Dana asks "Do we have sexual tension?" was one of my favourites.

There's a bunch of other lines I could quote as ones I liked, but I'll leave it. Apart from The Administrator's line "A troper has just referred to himself in the first person. We must make an example of him."

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

Definitely. Though it will probably be series two before the fanfiction gets going. Maybe a Kink Meme.

^^ Well, right now it's a catch-all Fridge page with Brilliance and Logic sections, since there's also the Fridge Logic question of "Why doesn't Tom simply turn his phone off, or at least set it to 'silent' while they're filming?"
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
