    Ahh, I've missed these. We haven't had a Too Damn Late in a few years now, it seems like.

    The backdrop appears to indicate (from the unobscured letters) that this show is called "Too Dam Late". Is it a new, edgy reboot?

    Also, +1 for dropping cinderblocks on Adam Sandler's head.

    I know I'm gonna sound like a bit of a hypocrite considering my reaction to the third panel in the last strip but I love the third panel in this one.

    I'm not much of a dog person, but still: generic dogs >>> Adam Sandler.

    No, it always said that.

    So... in that comic it says "Too Damn Late" and in the current comic it says "Too Dam Late". Look at the position and width of the "M" relative to the "TE" in late. It would mean that the "N" would be hanging on its own if it's a square logo.

    Yeah, I'm down with the cinder block idea.

    I've been hankering for a new "Too Damn Late" strip, but I'm not feeling this one. Probably the weakest of the strip series. Time Magazine? Rocket League? ehhhh.

    Hell of a deep cut, which I dug. Hopefully it won't be years before we get another TDL strip.

    Is joke here that Pixels sucked, or that late show people like dropping things off of buildings? Or both?

    Definitely the first, possibly the second also.

    I've always liked these strips, and I would watch that show.

  • Mr_GrinchMr_Grinch Registered User regular
    I...I enjoyed Pixels. Does that make me a monster?

    I mean, there were bits and whole characters I could have done without but as a bit of dumb entertainment? Yeah, I had fun.

    I would stay up way past my bedtime to watch this show, or any late show that drops cinderblocks on Adam Sandler.

    I think this is some of the best comedic writing in the strips in awhile. I liked this one.

    A (or the? never been sure if there's just the one) grinch would absolutely love Pixels for the fact that it sucks the joy out of pop culture icons that a significant segment of the population loves.

    The Yoshi Boxx was a bunch of consoles crammed into a PC case (with a PC), made by a guy from Screen Savers on TechTV.
    From Wikipedia:
    One of (Yoshi's) most memorable creations was Yoshi's Boxx, a combination of a gaming PC, Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, and many other older video game systems into one box. DeHerrera returned a year after the first Yoshi's Boxx to create Y-Boxx 2k3.

    I want to say it was mentioned another time (with Gabe demanding it as ransom), but I cannot track it down.

    art == best

    YOU'RE KILLING IT, MIKE!

    No slight to Jerry, because the writing is great, too. But you don't even need any words when the character art is this expressive. This strip would be great for another fan text contest.

    Looks like Too Damn Late got a nice set upgrade.

    Yeah, I don't get the flak. Haven't seen it yet, but Adam Sandler movies are built around putting your brain into neutral. They've always been about that.

    Remember that time when people didn't hate Adam Sandler? All you need is Wedding Singer.

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Oh wow. I never knew the Yoshi Box was an actual thing. Cool.

    Re: Pixels. I feel like such a movie would've been better received had it come out before Wreck-it Ralph came out and showed how a movie based around old arcade games can be done.

    "Remember that time when people didn't hate Adam Sandler? All you need is Wedding Singer."

    A good act does not wash out the bad, nor a bad act the good. After the cinder blocks, I'll buy a copy of The Wedding Singer.

    Make no mistake, Sandler deserves to be punished for many things, not just Pixels; but he's done some pretty good stuff, too. I thought Funny People was incredible.

    That said, I'll buy in. Where do we line up?

    I'm not a nice guy, I just play one in real life.

    You could just take a break for a couple months Mike, and just let Jerry do his thing with this very same panel the entire time. The format is infinitely reusable lol

  • ParisuParisu Registered User new member
    Now that's entertainment! If this was on TV I would watch it... Psyche! Who watches TV anymore? Am I right? Still, this has to be a thing... not a podcast... more like a comedy talk show, like Equals Three stuff. In fact someone get RWJ and his team working on this ASAP. This has to be a thing!

    The outrage over that cover and article sure felt like it got out of hand, though. Like, I get it, it's dorky, he looks silly, and saying "he doesn't look like your average D&D player!" got some people posting pictures of Vin Diesel, who also plays D&D (like that fact's not known by everyone exactly because of how surprising it was that someone like Vin Diesel is a hardcode D&D geek). But Palmer Luckey invented a $300 nerd-hat that lets you pretend to fly spaceships or explore alien landscapes. It's super cool, I really want to bankrupt myself to buy a setup to do it all justice, but that is pretty damned nerdy.
