    Figured a dedicated thread for this would be beneficial rather than spread between the youtube/podcast/etc threads

    Anyway, a new D20 trailer dropped and it looks incredible

    Smartypants and thousandaires have both been consistently funny. Neither has hit the highs of some of the wilder gamechanger episodes, but still definitely very good.

    I'm actually a bit lower on smartypants than most people here. The laughter from the audience frequently feels forced and the talks go very hot and cold.

    Except Ross's. Ross's talk is fucking incredible

    Anyway, with regards to this week's game changer, the episode was hilarious throughout, but the reveal
    kinda fell flat. Like, I'm basically the to exact target demo to recognize him and I had to look him up and go "oh that guy.

    Okay."

    Like it doesn't feel meaningful?

    I love basically every show dropout puts out. I also subscribed to Worlds Beyond Number which is Brennan, Erika, aabria, and lou doing long form d&d in a custom world and it's incredibly good. They did a children's campaign to create their characters!

    Also why does Sam keep looking at his hands every time he does the game changer intro HE'S STILL EVIL SAM

    Honestly would highly recommend Freshman year as an intro to the main D20 crew. It's their first time playing 5e, so their mechanical knowledge isn't great yet, but it does make their growth as players for later seasons hit even harder.

    And gives you a greater appreciation when in other seasons/settings they play more against type.

    Yeah I don't think it's a great sign that I would have been excited for another cast member way more than the person they got is a special guest.

    I don't think there are any bad places to start but here are my suggestions.

    Fantasy High: raucous and really fun but still featuring some of my most powerful moments. This is the first season so it's a great place to get in on the ground floor. It is however fairly chaotic and some of the players don't know what they're doing if that bothers you.

    A Starstruck Odyssey: easily the best season imo. Everybody is firing on all cylinders. Great gags. Great characters. The least sloggy of any DND combat. Just a great time all around.

    Misfits and Magic: Short and punchy, you can finish it in a day and it's fire the whole way through. It does however lean hard on one joke so if you aren't interested in a fun and (at the time) good hearted skewering of Harry Potter.

    A Crown Of Candy:The most political and serious campaign takes place in Candyland. This is a really good season for story and big powerful events.

    Mentopolis and Burrows End are also just very strong seasons that are shorter but I don't have much to say about them.

    I think Um Actually is the game that really shows how positive the nerd community can be if everyone's cool instead of angry and exclusionary and I like that

    I'm not into reality TV shows at all, but the um actually episodes with Izzy and them are amazing.

    Like I don't understand it at all, but the real housewives quotes segment is incredible

    All of them. It's unwatchable to me. I have not watched more than 3 episodes.

    Gimmie more Misfits and Magic sized tables

    Rizz is an easy cut for me. No second thoughts. Adaine rose in my estimations a lot this season but probably still gets cut for some of the best DND character work out there.

    I was somewhat worried by Trapp leaving Um, Actually, because I hate change, but Iffy's done very well in making the host role his own and Brian David Gilbert is a delight. Plus they got Xavier Woods for an episode!

    1) Silence 2) Books must be returned by the last date shown 3) Do not interfere with the nature of causality

    People are all about Ross' Smartypants talk, and it is good, but do you know what is also good? Eggs.

    Katie Marovitch's presence and tonality means that she can make reading a list of ways to prepare eggs very funny.

    Also, anyone who has PFT in their audience gets a +5 funny bonus.

    Also a good running bit is that Katie keeps showing up in game changer for people to give her money for some reason. Good gig I guess!

    Also the Neverafter season of dimension 20 was great. A non sexual adult sleepover. Don't drink water!

    Oh good, it wasn’t just me left cold by the reveal at the end of the last Game Changer episode. Absolutely a “literally who” moment for me. Almost any other reveal, including having 2 cast members working as a team or no twist at all, would’ve been more impactful.
