    Hey man. do you think the Lego masters is something you just do naturally? To cope with the pressure, Cocaine just ain't gonna cut it.

    Seriously me and my mom watched this together and she was totally freaked out by this creature.

    The concept for the show looked awesome, but something my gut was telling me to stay away from it for the first few episodes for some reason.

    I guess I won't be hosting the show's premier in my den anytime soon.

    I don't get the reference in the title here.

    Maybe it was a coin toss whether or not she actually was on bath salts or just nuts? Only thing I can think of.

    I watched a little of the episode just to see what this was referencing.

    "The bigger the hair, the closer to God."

    Even the show's producers clearly wanted to lampshade that she was a little bit 'on bathsalts', else why choose that particular line to highlight? Big Oof.

    I also don't know if I'm ready for a show hosted by Will Arnett, after the end of Bojack dropped about five hot minutes ago. I... I need some time.

    At first glance of the title I thought it was another Witcher nod.

    Based on the description of the woman they are referencing, it could still be a Witcher thing.

    It is a Witcher thing. Not everyone can challenge common sense. Takes a special kind of crazy. I admire it on the sly.
    You never know when you'll need to tap into your inner madness to excel. Hopefully, you never have to, ya know? Just keep things nice and easy. Smooth and fine.
    Everything's fine.

    anyone have a link or video of the lady? I did a quick search but came up blank and thought this would be a good place to ask...

    It is.
    The third panel originally had substantial percentage of Witcher references - nearly one hundred percent, by volume - but the final version of the strip leans more heavily into synthetic cathinones. But then the title stayed? I don’t know. I’m leaving it.

    I would also really appreciate a link. I'm missing vital context for this comic strip, it seems.

    As someone from Missouri, I knew exactly who and what she was the second I saw her.

    And then we found out where she was from, and I was not wrong, and I was very very upset that this was the case.

    Yeah, because the world needed yet another reality TV show...so glad I don't have cable anymore.

    That second panel is terrifying.

    I don't know where he got the scorpions, or how he got them into my mattress.

    Enh, I feel it depends. Mostly, no. But I'm sure glad they made Strip Search.

    I bet the director got hoarse screaming at the contestants for bigger reaction shots.
    Because I don't believe any human would intentionally stretch their face meats into such a contortionist rictus without substantial coaching from an external source.

    Okay, good. I'm not crazy. I came in expecting a Witcher comic and got this Lego one instead and was very confused.

    I'm watching the first episode because of this comic, and frankly her smile is the least disturbing face she makes. Because she has the Crazy Eyes(tm), smiling tends to make her eyes less visible, while her other expressions use the wide eyed look.

    I'm impressed that she managed to stand out in a show with a grown man in a preschool denim jumper and a flowered Mohawk braid.

    Pfft. That's old news.

    Now show me a grown man with a preschooler in a flowered jumper tied into his braids and we can talk.

    I watched the first episode today, and actually kind of enjoyed it. The lumberjack brothers look of "Oh we fucked up," when they realized they had to move their creation back to the starting position and it broke on the way.

    Definitely a lot of the usual reality TV magic editing going on, which always kind of ruins the fun of these things for me. Crazy lady's team and one other were made to look like they were still in the planning stages more than half way through, but if you look at the other teams during that visit from the hosts, you'll see another team with nothing on their board either, then two minutes later the hosts are at their table and they've got a head-high mountain with a Lego Yggdrasil growing at its base as if those were just stock blocks you could pick out of the bins.
