"Alpha," I hear you cry, "this is madness! How much PATV will you bring us?"

Monday was a one time "comic and episode" bonus day.

Our cup overrunneth with PATV videos, so we decided to release episodes twice a week. Tuesday seems under-appreciated by the internet denizens, so we are showing it a little love. Tycho should have a newspost up soon to explain the rest.

Here is Mega64 Episode 5: Claus and Effect

    The doubling up of the shot where Santa fires at the camera, shattering the lens near the end is what really got me.

    are you guys back on the "Mega64 hasn't been awful" side of things?

    I could have sworn it was a general consensus that none of them have been anything above mediocre and drawn-out

    well I just watched it and I'll have to disagree :/

    there were some good parts

    Claus and effect

    let it snow


    the double shooting thing

    all good, but the mega64 guys keep demonstrating an absolute lack of comedic timing or any sort of pacing

    the whole thing just sort of fizzles out, the highlight was a few parts in the actual trailer, and even then, this whole thing could have been 30 seconds and would have been better for it

    Yeah, that was what I thought too, but I've never been able to keep up with the cool kids' trends.

    p.s. that stupid ad with the woman telling lame standup jokes for Kraft or something is literally the worst thing on the internet.

    As cool as it was to get that guy from Behemoth in there, it really didn't work.

    I was thinking, "holy hell, this is funny for once" right up until his DVD ended.

    Then it was real bad.

    But hey, baby steps!

    Alright, I've never posted before, and will likely never post again, but this is crazy talk.

    Of all things PATV, your top two favorites are both Mega64 episodes? Is that what you're saying here?

    Don't mind Reflection, by all evidence he's related to one of the Mega64 guys or something.

    that there's something about it others can enjoy

    but I just can't see it

    On the one hand this wasn't too bad. I don't want my 6 minutes back or anything. On the other hand, I think a PATV channel could really be providing some unique content that I couldn't get just by going to CollegeHumor or something.

    For instance, I would legitimately watch a PATV episode where the camera just followed Khoo around while Khoo is Khoo. Like, just Khoo typing on a Blackberry would definitely be compelling, and more importantly we'd get the more interesting Khoo moments like when he steals TVs or ascends to godhood.

    Also I am gay for Khoo.

    But yes I would watch a 24/7 Khoo reality show. And that's something only PATV can make happen.

    Or they could get some footage of cats. Mike, Jerry, and Scott all have cats, right? Everyone loves cat videos on the Internet. I'm not saying that would be better than Mega64, I'm just saying I would probably prefer it.

    In fact ideally just put some cats in Khoo's office and park a camera there on a tripod.

    Another rave review quote for an upcoming Mega64 DVD box!

    Goes right above:

    "This one actually wasn't too bad."

    I think if you're hating people on the Internet over a difference of opinion on a video, you have bigger problems than the Mega64 guys.
