Machinima / Gorgeous Freeman

Go To
Get used to seeing this masterpiece, folks.
Gorgeous Freeman is a Garry's Mod-based machinima by Antoine Delak. It follows a parody of Half-Life 2's storyline, where the most obvious difference is that Gordon Freeman (renamed "Gorgeous Freeman") spends about half of the series in nothing but his underwear.

The series is acclaimed for its extremely bizarre and vulgar, yet professionally well-produced humor and style, akin to The Ren & Stimpy Show.

It was officially cancelled three episodes in, by late 2018.

Gorgeous Freeman includes examples of:

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Gorgeous can twist his head a full 180 degrees in Episode 1 and when told to turn around on a bed in Episode 3: Part 1 he twists his head and body 180 degrees in opposite directions.
  • Adam Westing: Mike Hillard (Isaac Kleiner) and Kevin Sisk (Barney Calhoun) both spoof the characters they voiced in Black Mesa.
  • Ass Shove: Gorgeous can shove an entire train car into his ass and crap it out to beat the crap out of Civil Protection.
  • Badass Beard: Just as Gordon, Gorgeous has a trademark goatee.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In Episode 3: Part 1, Gorgeous sheds his armor as he preps to shove the Razor Train into his rectum like he did in episode 2... only to flip off at Civil Protection as he dashes out of the way... to let the train run them over regardless.

  • Big Bad: As in the original, Dr. Breen, who is obsessed with Gorgeous's ass.
  • Canon Immigrant: Ms. Person from Elliot Goes To School takes the roll of Dr. Mossman.
  • Chick Magnet: Episode 3's Part 1 reveals every single female Black Mesa employee gushed over Gorgeous.
  • Clingy Costume: Downplayed. Gorgeous can take off the HEV suit just fine, but it will chase him down if he tries to abandon it.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: The end theme is Gorgeous swearing over "The Nightmare Woods Theme/Run Run Rottytops".
  • Cut Short: Cut so short Gordon didn't even make it out of Black Mesa. How the hell does that even work?
  • Dirty Old Man: God, is Kleiner one Depraved Bisexual. Dr. Breen isn't any better seeing how he craves Gorgeous's ass.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Invoked in episode 2, when Gorgeous...cleans a crowbar. This gets Barney and Kleiner very excited.

  • Even the Guys Want Him: Several of the male characters have expressed...admiration for Gorgeous's ass. Wallace Breen's ultimate goal, in fact, is to "obtain dat ass." Of course, given Episode 3: Part 1's reveal that Breen thought he had the best butt in the world "obtain dat ass" may have... Different connotations.
  • Every Episode Ending: "...DAMN, I'M LOOKIN' GOOOOOOOOD!"
  • Mr. Fanservice: Half of the series is hilariously sleazy shots of Gorgeous's Heroic Build and ass.
  • Flipping the Bird: Gorgeous does this a lot, whether it be to Breen to Civil Protection or the viewer.
  • One Steve Limit: Inverted with the Metro Police, who are all named Wilson according to episode 2.
  • Powered Armor: Gorgeous' HEV Suit. Gorgeous repeatedly attempts to ditch it, but unfortunately, it's sentient, and clingy.
  • Recurring Riff: "Anaconda" has appeared at least once in each episode so far, as does Dr. Evil's theme. For Doctor Breen his secondary theme is the Pronosonic song "A Happy Ass: Special Delivery". Seeing how he's obsessed with Gorgeous's ass as much as his own it's more than fitting.
  • The Quiet One: Gordon isn't a Heroic Mime anymore, but he still rarely talks.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: Gorgeous stops to give Barney a round of applause along with a Cheshire Cat Grin as he passes him on his tram ride.
  • Shellshocked Veteran: Gorgeous actually has genuine PTSD linked to the Black Mesa Incident, as shown in Episode 3 Part 1.
  • Shot in the Ass: In episode 2. Gorgeous then farts the bullet right back at the Combine.
  • Shout-Out: Several.
    • Most notably, Duke Nukem provides Gorgeous's voice.
    • In Part 1, during the "Dat Posterior" sequence, there's an item description, notably with the attribute "100% Chance to Seduce Dr. Higglesworth". In the late kitty0706's series Elliot Goes To School, a recurring antagonistic character, using Dr. Kleiner's model, goes under the name "Mr. Higglesworth".
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Gorgeous doesn't talk a lot but when he does it's usually a swear word and barely anyone else swears.
  • Spanner in the Works: As in the game, Lamar interferes with Gorgeous's teleportation.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: Not only is Gordon still a ridiculously badass One-Man Army, but he's got a Heroic Build that's shown off like no tomorrow and is voiced by Duke Nukem.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: The series exaggerates the jackbootedness of the Combine by literally having them do the Nazi Salute after Breen's speeches, and using soundbites from the Nazis from Metro: Last Light.
  • Title Drop:
    Breen: Well well, if it isn't, Gorgeous Freeman
  • Toilet Humour: Including Gorgeous fitting an entire train up his ass before farting it back out, along with other jokes involving farts, poo, semen and more examples of high-brow humour.
  • Transformation Sequence: Parodied. Gorgeous’ version boils down to flexing his suit off, flexing some more and his butt inexplicably expanding. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds.
  • Up to Eleven: When Gorgeous is re-teleported into Breen's office in Episode 1, he finds himself surrounded by (in order and successively) Breen, a squad of Combine Elites, another squad of Combine Elites, yet another squad of Combine Elites (who knock on the door before blowing it up), two Striders and four Gunships outside the top floor of the Citadel, and finally waves upon waves of aliens who quite literally have the Earth surrounded. Lampshaded by Breen.
    Breen: Well, it looks like you're completely surrounded.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: Half of Episode 3's Part 1 is Gorgeous remembering the Black Mesa Incident.

Careful when shooting at Gorgeous' Ass; it can shoot right back at you.
