    Another great episode. I love that they went on a duck boat tour. The interview thing looks interesting. I think I am really gonna dig the social, competitive, elimination format. Lexi was a great winner and I love the prize.

    Great episode. I am going to let the addition of Odontoceti to the family of whales slide as Orcas are a suborder by the strictest definition.

    Oh good god...Living in Seattle and going to school downtown, I had to wait for the bus right by where those damned Duck tours started and ended. I quickly grew to hate them.

    Good episode though! How long must we wait for the long teased "butt virginity" line?

    Damn, this was some funny shit. Duckboat-guy Lou was the episodes main character by far. So funny, made me wanna ride that crazy death trap of a vehicle.

    The prize was awesome, but i kept wondering about the prizes as a whole. Maki got some weird ticket and Lexxy got a brand spanking new Cintiq? Does that mean that Maki's weird ticket is ten ways of awesome of some kind?

    Gotta hand it to Team Lexxy for pulling out the win! The Cintiq's a phenomenal prize, but it has no bearing on overall success, while that redraw ticket is almost assuredly a Get Out of Comic Faceoff Free card, or something similar. I'd say that, in the grand scheme of things, Maki's still got the hotter prize.

    Part of me wants to stop watching and let all the episodes pile up so I can just watch them all at once and not have to stop.

    CURSE YOU PENNY ARCADE FOR MAKING SUCH GREAT CONTENT!!!

    Yay Lexxy! I've never used a Cintiq...they seem pretty awesome though.

    I live in Pittsburgh and we also have duckboats (ours are red) and I have never actually been on one- now I kind of want to take the tour!

    We have duckboats in Pittsburgh? I HAD NO IDEA!

    A bunch of forumers usually do a duckboat tour before PAX Prime every year in Seattle, but I haven't been on that one yet either. I fail at duckboats.

    Abby was charming as f*** in this ep.

    Otherwise, a little boring. Grant was way better though, maybe because he had time to show more personality.

    Thank God I wasn't drinking something when Abby's waterboarding answer appeared. I laughed my ass off.

    Lexxy's prize is pretty sweet. Can't wait to see what else the contestants win.

    Admittedly the first half of this episode was a little boring, but it did give us a chance to "play along" during the test. But still......

    Now, d'ya know what would have been a REALLY funny challenge? Asking the artists to draw every single hat that the Captain wore.

    Also? BOOM goes the 2 grand prize!

    So it looks like every segment is going to be "fun challenge"->"Serious challenge"->"elimination challenge." I like that format. It means two days after the depression of someone being kicked off the show we get a funny relaxing episode.

    I'm really enjoying this and I like the format a lot. However, I think they need to edit the episodes a little more. We didn't need to see every answer to the quiz. I felt the same way during the ice breaker during episode one; totally killed the pacing to look at everything. Show us the highlights! We can handle slightly shorter episodes.

    Congrats Lexxy!

    Every time I see Lexxy do well, it makes me happy. But actually there's a lot of likability among the contestants, so I'll probably be happy either way. Also depressed.

    Another fine episode! I kept getting distracted by wondering how they got the exterior shots of the duck. I'm guessing they found out the route ahead of time then raced ahead and set up the camera. (At first I thought it might be stock footage, but when it was on the water you could see Graham or whoever inside the duck filming.)

  • WangchangbackupWangchangbackup Registered User regular
    @Zerzhul that was my first thought.

    Good episode, though! Since one of the first three episodes focused almost exclusively on two of the contestants, and another was just everyone's intro, I really felt like I still hadn't got a chance to get to know everybody yet. It was nice to see some lighthearted, fun stuff happening.

  • bpacbpac Registered User new member
    pretty glad that their duck boat didn't capsize.

    I don't know, I was ok with it. People have complained the show is too short, so I appreciated getting to see all the answers.

    Another good episode, kinda boring during the tour because we aren't there personally. Surprisingly awesome prize, I'm trying to get a Cintiq and they're mad expensive. Congrats Lexxy!

    It says redraw, not escape, so I bet you get to pick another prompt from the wastebasket, or you get a second chance to draw something after time is up

    Seriously though, that Wacom is almost 15% of the overall cash prize for winning the show. It's a hell of a prize for the "goofy" challenge on day 2.

    I've done the duck boat tours in Boston and they're a lot of fun. Boston has a lot of history so it is a pretty educational tour as well. I'll highly recommend it for anyone who goes to Boston.

  • LampLamp Registered User regular
    I liked this episode and I definitely don't think the challenge in every episode needs to be directly related to drawing comics (that wouldn't be a great way to get to know the contestants, anyway). But I'm kind of disappointed that the next episode, the big challenge of this round, also has nothing to do with art. They're having their interview skills tested? Just, why? You "need to be able to hold your own in an interview" to be a successful web cartoonist? I would think exactly the opposite. At least the t-shirt challenge made a logical connection, despite not being directly related to comics.

    Just finished watching 1 - 5.

    You picked some great people for this. I want them all to win.

    I got to drive one of those ducks when I was a little kid. Granted, I was sitting on some dude's lap, but still. Drove a duck.

    @TOEKNEEBULLARD If you watch the episodes on stripsearch.tv, the comments are hidden by default.

    @LAMP being a webcartoonist is more an entrepreneurial gig than I think most people realize. It's not just about writing and drawing. You're your own web designer, merch guy, accountant, legal, and PR department.

    Some guy.
