Great episode, as always.

I was a bit a frustrated by the Observe and Report review, since what they were describing reminds me of Bad Santa--my favorite comedy. The trailer of Observe and Report and the negative vibe they described turned me off, but if they had given their thoughts on Bad Santa I think I would have got a better idea. Basing it on other Jody Hill's stuff, I think I may like it at least a little bit. I wonder if any of them seen Bad Santa. If so, thoughts please!

Great show chaps as always, but what's up with Alex's hair? Is he trying to balance out head height in the camera shots ;)

BTW. The plural of Lego is Lego. No extra "s" or even "es", just L E G O :p

Hurray for Raised on Rad! Always love those special segments. And oh man those Legos. I used to have a huge bucket full until my parents gave them away. I died a little inside that day (rhyme unintended... or was totally intended).

A lot of Webby nominees that I've never heard of. I must not be on the internet as much as I thought.

I thought Observe and Report was alright. Not as bad as they described. It's a very, very dark/black comedy. I actually didn't know that going in, I expected something like "I Love You, Man" from the trailer, but I got into it. Contrary to Jeff and Alex "I know no one in my life who'll find this funny" Albrecht (lol jk), the skateboarder beat-up scene was one of my highlights. Possibly because I'm around the same age as them *probably older* and they shouldn't be fucking around there anyway. I guess I took it the same way I took the earlier "beat up" scene with the thugs.

lol. I was writing this as Dan started talking, and he's kinda saying the same things. Although, I did bring myself to laugh. Even during that scene with Anna Faris SEMI-unconscious having sex with Seth Rogen. At first, everyone in my theater was kinda quiet/snickering like Oh my God, but when she delivers the "Don't stop, motherfucker." line, everyone started laughing wholeheartedly. So, I don't know. If you know going in what it is, I think it's OK. Not great, but ok. If you don't and/or you don't like this style, you'll probably find it pretty shitty. I actually went to see it with my mom and younger brother. And we all had a good time. My mom less so, but hey she laughed here and there. lmao. Man... am I fucked up?

That Raised on Rad segment makes me want to run out and buy a LEGO set really badly, my weekend project confirmed.

While I would agree that Killzone 2's single player while really good had a sort of generic feel to it, they skipped over the multiplayer which is a large part of the value of the game and to me could be the best FPS multiplayer on the PS3.

Jeff, you're a LEGO fan! That's awesome!

Lego was by far my favourite toy too. Still have a metric crap-ton of lego, some of it Star Wars. And I also used to build it according to instructions, pick it apart and build my own thing. Nothing has brought more joy to my life than Lego.

If you ever visit Europe, you should totally go to Legoland in Denmark for a quick visit - you won't regret it.

The Lego part is the best segment I've ever seen on TRS! I thought it was hilarious how they kept messing up with the parts and Alex was playing with the Lego men. Great episode, checking out Moon and Cube now! :)

Just made this :D

My 5-year old daughter watched the Lego segment with intensity. Doing so in a pile of her own Legos.

Props to Dan for the "All-stars of Autism 1979" T-shirt. My kids appreciate the too.

Great episode!!!
Powerpuff Girls! I love Powerpuff Girls and Dexters Labratorium. The background was too awesome. Was Jeff the only one who had seen PPG?

Observe & Report is maybe my kind of movie, even though I don't think I'm gonna love it.
Moon looks fantastic. A more realistic version of 2001: a space odyssey. Sam Rockwell is cool, and Kevin Spacey is the voice of the robot. I'm absolutely going to watch it after its release. Nice trailer. I haven't heard of Cube before, but it looks cool.

Killzone 2 is not my type of game. I haven't played a lot of 1st-person shooter, I don't think it is a game I would play much, or play it at all.
MadWorld looks great, but the plot is amybe a bit thin. And just the same over and over again. Maybe I'm gonna try it, but not sure.

The lego segment was so rad! I grew up playing with lego every week. I think I have at least 3-5 big boxes with only lego in my basement. I remember that after being in Legoland, Denmark I bought a X-wing in lego. I built it the same day i bought it and it was so much fun playing with it, pretending to destroy the Death Star. I have also had a ship I can't remember, but Darth Vader was one of the figures that followed in the package. The most epic stars wars lego I got must be the scene where Han Solo is being freezed (episode V). The only piece of lego I got in my room, is a miniature version of one of the starships, only a few inches long.
I hope there will be more lego in the future.

Alex and Jeff kinda sounded like pussies while reviewing Observe and Report. The audience in Austin where I saw it laughed a lot. I loved it. Man up, nancies.

I like how you guys panned Superbad when it came out, but last week you retracted. Are you going to eat crow on this one too?

whenever people ask me why i like writing code so much, i tell them it's because when i was little i built things with legos non-stop, and it's just an extension of my desire to build things.

my last set was the batboat. crushed my college-student-wallet.

Perhaps. We certainly reserve that right. But I should point out that I haven't changed my opinion of it, and Dan liked it initially, so Alex really is the only one to really have a major change of heart.

Background was awesome. Powerpuff Girls was a show I watched with my sister that and Dexters Lab and Johnny Bravo, Cartoon Network memories.

Moon looks awesome. Observe and Report will probably be a rental for me.

The Lego segment was awesome just like the other raised on rads. Those segments are always so special compared to the rest of the show.

Was TRS not nominated for a webby this year? wtf

Just because they didn't like it and found it offensive doesn't mean they're pussies. I haven't seen the movie yet but I read something on Digg about how the movies exactly like that other mall cop movie that recently came out and that it was also pretty offensive.

I thought it was the best intro yet - which has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she's my cute little girl. :)

Haven't actually watched the whole episode yet but Nina couldn't be more excited about seeing herself on the show - she's my little baby geek, although, her favorite movie is Episode III... kids these days.

Observe and Report was deffinitly a dark and crude humor. Me personally I love this kind of stand up and comedy. Its been very long since i seen a movie like this. I agree with Dan a lot on what he said. This movie is not for everyone but it does have its audience. Its nice to see a movie that doesnt try to cater to familes or has to be safe just to please everyone. I wouldn't say its the best comodey of the year but it really is refreshing to see something differnt and new out there.

Dan mentioned Oldboy in the movies section. This would be a good time to post my FAVORITE piece of music in a movie ever.

Man, one part of me was hoping, HOPING that somewhere in the movie episode, Jeff would have forced a stop tape, forced Dan and Alex to go watch I Love You, Man, then go continue the show.

In anycase, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE go watch I Love You, Man and review it.
Love to see the reviews from everyone.

So they mentioned it. What is the easy way to get the 360 controller to work on the PS3?

**Actually this seems like an easy way to get it to ACTUALLY work for like $40ish -- XCM Cross Battle Adapter... rather than the linux styled software way**

The Observe and Report review makes me want to see it, the issues you guys had with it, made me think of A Clockwork Orange. Generally I subscripe to the unfunny funny concept, irony so vauge, it throws your off balance. Fits perfectly with the gritty violence, which ads ambivalence, by maintaining a disturbing element. I thought the trailer had it's funny moments, but I really liked that it didn't provide clearly defined jokes. Anti-climatic almost, like you laughed because you thought you were being setup for a ba da bom tssch moment, leaving you laughing with a bad tast in your mouth. Probably reading too much into the review and trailer, but could Observe and Report be a meta-comedy?

Loved the intro, cute, but also a little girl quoting Hudson, who were more girly than Newt, I see what you did there. :D

Somebody buy Alex one of these (http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Wireless-Controller-Rumble-Playstation-3/dp/B001RNOQLS) so he can stop bitching about the PS3 controller.

All you or Alex or anyone needs to do is find a USB pad that you like, and that should do the trick. Only you will likely lose wireless and SIXAXIS.

I have definitely been emailing Jeff with with links, as well as Twittering to Alex, but I am fairly convinced communication with Alex is all one-way.

Ah, Lego. One of my favorite pastimes as a child. I've got so many sets down in my garage, I almost can't count. God bless my Mom for buying them for me, it wasn't until I got much, much older that I realized how outrageously expensive they all are.

I do know, for certain, how much the one Alex built cost. It ain't cheap. I was going to buy it "on sale," and it was still too expensive for me (at the time). Still, what a great way to spend an afternoon... Building, tinkering, and playing. But the best part? Figuring where you're going to put it so it can be shown off!

SIDE NOTE:

The folks at Lego brought back one of my favorite series, the Pirate sets, and I belive they're rolling out more of the Space and City stuff as well. I was looking to buy the big pirate ship the other day, they wanted to sell me the damn thing for $120. EFF THAT SHAS NAGG.

Harumph. Guess I'll just have to wait for that Lego MMO.

From the intro, my girlfriend loves movie/tv food. A lot of her favorite foods come from seeing them in a movie/tv show. From Spaghetti in Lady and the Tramp to the multicolored food in Hook.

I'm also a huge fan of Powerpuff Girls. I thought the tv show was awesome, the movie not so much.

I'm totally with Jeff when it comes to Legos. I always built the set once and then tore it down and made whatever. I especially liked making Godzilla. The last lego set I put together was a batmobile I got as a gift. The only problems, they were all black pieces. So you need like a 1000 watt light bulb to read the directions.

I loved MadWorld. As far as the motion controls go, I think they are used well in some parts and kinda suck in others. Moving your hands apart to tear someone in the same fashion is pretty visceral. But waggling like crazy was annoying. And the other voice announcer is John DiMaggio. He has done a lot of voice work, probably most notable is Bender from Futurama. I totally loved the commentating when it wasn't repeating too often. Overall it really had more to it than what I expect from a brawler.

Thanks for that info! I've been researching since watching the episode of which one I wanna go with. Kinda like the idea of using the standard 360 controller with the adapter. I can get one of them for about $40... No Vibe but I don't really care for that anyways.

I found a wireless one that works too. Not EXACTLY the 360 controller though. Would be cool for the wireless aspect.

still deciding! :D

first, i don't think that's going to solve the problem he has with the controller. and second, he didn't whine about the controller in this episode, he made his review without factoring in the horrible ps3 controller design.

I try not to blame filmmakers for the trailers the studios put out. I actually disagree with Jeff for once about a movie review, which was strange.

At least I think the guys were right on with the Taxi Driver reference. Even his relationship with the counter girl is the same. I liked how the film was made to question that line between movie humor, and things that in real life would just be rather sad. : /

Now that is interesting. I might get one of these for the PC and for the PS3. That D-pad looks much like the one on my Logitech Dual Action, which is the best D-pad I've ever used. This would solve my problem of having both a Dual Action (for fighting games) and a wired Xbox 360 controller plugged into my PC (for games like Lost Planet) as well as my problem with the PS3 controller for games like Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.

To get back on topic, um... Observe & Report is an ok movie. I've never seen Taxi Driver, so I actually want to check that out now that I hear everyone speak about commonalities between them.

I LOVED the raised on rad segment. Jeff was right when he said legos were THE toy growing up. Anytime I had a chance to get a new toy, I always went straight for the legos. I'd build whatever it was suppose to be first, then construct some even more awesome with it and parts from other lego sets I had from before.


still not feeling the fan submitted videos. the one they chose to be the actual video at the beginning was almost the worst of the 4 combining the ones from the end. I loved their remade scenes so much more :(

I'm glad someone other than me said it. I'm hesitant to be critical of the intros, because I'm aware that I am never going to submit one. I am curious if this is what the guys were expecting for user-submitted videos, or not.


I still put the challenge out there: break script. We've had enough videos already to establish the premise; now's the time to start having fun with it. I think that seeing one person really connect outside of the fill-in-the-blanks script is going to raise the bar for everyone else. I just don't know when/if that's going to happen.


Loved Legos growing up, but my childhood hit the Construx (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Construx) window of opportunity perfectly. Bigger pieces meant that they scaled so much better with action figures. Still, I had my fair share of legos growing up (and their cheaper, coincidentally-to-the-same-scale knock-off, Tyco), and I always built the thing in the instructions first, then gradually stole pieces from it to build whatever I was working on at the time.

Im kinda like Alex where as when it comes to shooters on PS3, i fucking hate it. Only because im so used to the 360 controller. I like more how that feels in my hands. Ive never played Killzone 2, but cant say i wanna play it right away either. Im not a big fan of shooting and enemy over and over again before they die. Especially if its a headshoot. they should die then. But what do i know, i havent even played the game.

And oh yeah, the legos where awesome! Im one of those who liked to build my own stuff in lego. But i sure hafto run down to the toy store and get some SW lego

I'm really curious as to what the TRS guys think of Eastbound and Down. I haven't seen Observe and Report or Fist Foot Way, but I really loved that show, so maybe they're more my sense of humor. The review kinda made me wanna see it, even though everybody hated the movie.

As for Madworld, it's a beat 'em up, like Double Dragon, or River City Ransom. If you go in expecting an adventure game it will seem repetitive. The fun is just in the... beating up.

Also, Alex spitting out the burger made the intro.

Previous to this episode I had no interest in Observe and Report. However, I have a sort of morbid curiosity now. Tisk tisk, I know.

Also, I'm really getting into these new intros. Can't wait to grow some balls and try to make one of my own. This summer perhaps?

I loved the intro! I just wanted to huggle that little one...

Anyway, PowerPuff Girls and Dexter's Laboratory were staples in this house. Both are now on the Boomerang channel. Anakin still will do the MojoJojo Voice and I do Dexter's pronunciations quite often. Oh, and I do "Oooh, what does this button do?" quite often too. I admit it, I have issues.

From the preview of Observe and Report alone that I saw at a movie theater that had a shot of the sex scene in it, I had no desire to see this movie. It's suppose to be a comedy and yet has the main character in essence raping a drugged up chick (sorry, but if you are so out of it you are puking, you are not in a state of mind to decide about a flavor of ice cream much less sex). Even as a dark comedy, I am not seeing it. Yes, Clockwork Orange very much includes a scene but it also deals with it in a rather apt manner. I haven't seen any comedy movie show the supposed good guy main character do anything like that since one of the old Cheech and Chong movies.

I Love You, Man was such a great movie! Not such a great first date movie, but it was hysterical.

Legos are horribly expensive. The kid owns over 89 medium to large sets, not to mention all the smaller sets. I blame jointly Legos and Nintendo (damn DS games) for why I am broke.

Thanks for that info! I've been researching since watching the episode of which one I wanna go with. Kinda like the idea of using the standard 360 controller with the adapter. I can get one of them for about $40... No Vibe but I don't really care for that anyways.

I found a wireless one that works too. Not EXACTLY the 360 controller though. Would be cool for the wireless aspect.

still deciding! :D

No probs. I think controller preference is individual, and if I can help people play their PS3s more comfortably, then I'll do so. :) I don't know if there's a way to use a DualShock 3 (or a Logitech Cordless Action - very comfy PS2 pad, similar enough to DS3 for my liking) on the 360 or not, but if I ever get one, I'll look into it at that time.

Out of curiosity, what is the wireless controller you found?

I'd put a computer before Lego in that category; and yes, a computer is definitely, among other things, a toy.

(Any programming language with some power to it ranks higher as well.)

enjoyed the lego segment, a couple years back i received a millennium falcon lego set ($100 piece) as a gift and it was quite a bit of fun assembling and they have really come a long way since i was a kid.

The user submitted intros are hard too watch, it's a step backwards imo. Very little is added by user submitting intros and arbitrarily throwing them in somewhere pretending they make sense. Id much rather just have a text intro or the guys doing a voice over with what they're gonna talk about.

forgot about the seeing food/drink in movies . . .

Indiana Jones & last crusade - when he dips the chalice in the water to give to connery - I always get thirsty at that part

waterworld - when he throws the big fish steak on the hot coals and it starts to sizzle n spit, i could go for something on the grill

westerns - hearing them scraping their forks on the metal plates while eating beans makes me get a hankerin for beans n bread

empire strikes back - luke eating the survival rations on dagobah makes me want a granola bar

robocop - they show the machine that makes his nutrient paste . . . makes me want applesauce

sandlot - big league chew

desperado - when I hear that disgusting belch come from the tap when they serve a beer . . . it actually makes me want a beer

lord of the rings - seeing the two hobbits snacking on those elven crackers makes me miss MRE crackers

blues brothers - when they are at the table eating like pigs I get a cravin for a big bucket of chicken

Hook - the scene where he finally sees the feast sitting in front of him = hungry

outlaw josey wales - when he takes a hunk of chew I feel like gnawing on jerky

I never really got the prefab lego things that only make one thing. When I was a kid legos were just blocks and panels, and the point was to have the child be creative, not just follow directions to make one design.

I liked legos when they were around, but I preferred Tinker Toys when I was young...

After watching this episode, I really feel the need to go to Toys R Us and buy some legos. It was so much fun watching them build the sets.
I had an obsession with legos as a child.
My mom wanted me to play with Barbies (and I did) but I always loved to play with legos even more.

I think it's cause the whole green screen shots are done as one big shot with all 3 of them and then they add the close-ups during post... which means worse video quality.

Ok, I think I know what it is - I finally watched the episode (12 hour work days this week gimme a break! :-) ) and I'm not going to go to past episodes to check, but in my head it seems to get iffy when they zoom in on just Alex or just Dan or just Jeff. Correct me if I'm wrong but have I ever seen just one of the boys on camera at a time..? It seems like the zoom ins always had two of them in the shot, so maybe zooming in to just one is twice what we usually see and perhaps too much. I didn't have as much problem with it, but I'm watching it in 'HD' so I dunno.

Nah, you've seen the zoom on one of them plenty of times, my favourite of those times being when Dan lost it over Jeffs sweating, and while Jeff and Alex talked, Steve focused on the empty spot of where Dan should have been, and all you could hear, under their conversation, was Dan whimpering - way funnier than the 'jack-off' and 'the thing abou thte blacks' moments, IMO.

Episode 24 - Generosity - Vid Games segment - 37mins50secs

It's funner to go back 2 whole mins and watch the -instant- it starts. It's several mins long too.

I was surprised to see my background was on the show this week. The PPG seemed to fit TRS. So I made it just for fun, I did not think they would of used it. It's also good to see I'm not the only one that liked the PPG. Most people would look at me funny when I told them I watched it. :)


I loved the Lego part. I would play with those for hours as a kid. It's one of the toys that lets you be creative. I still have all my old Lego that I'm saving for my kids.(when I have kids)

DamndEyez said the same thing when he watched Incident At Blood Pass. You've never seen sake drunk in silence, to such great affect. Wil, regardless of the food topic, you should see that movie if you haven't. Oh, and be sure to have plenty of sake and rice and tea ready to accompaniment your viewing experience.


On topic. I've been not smoking lately, and Don Draper on Mad Men smokes my brand and it's been hard to watch. I know this is gross to a non-smoker, but he makes it look 'tasty'..... and of course, I reminisce how it was so.

I don't get urges that often. Don't like being around people smoking in fact, never did, even as a smoker. Mad Men is different for me because I can see the non-filtered Lucky Strikes, as opposed to massive brown butted regular cigs that I can't smoke. Plus, this may be hard to believe for non-smokers, but the smoke is different and I can tell. Like Betty's smokes after mid-season 1, she moved to herbal filtered, and I can tell the difference from both the exhalation smoke, and the cig smoke. Just seeing any old regular person smoke any old regular cig doens't affect me, but Don, in the afternoon light in his office with the non-filtered Luckies . . ..

I also find my cravings to spike when I watch Fight Club.

The kung fu wasn't that goofy though, well, Sammo's was. The main guy was old Peking Opera brother to Jackie Chan, Corey Yuen (Yuen Biao) who directed The Transporter.

Great episode and I loved the Lego section. I played with them a bunch when I was a kid and now I buy them for my 6 year old son. They have gotten much more complicated then I remember. And Alex got lucky with numbered bags, I have put together about 6 or 7 different sets and they have all been in scattered bags.
The last set I did for him was the Star Wars Republic Gunship, and that thing took me about 6+ hours to do, I couldn't believe it. But I loved every minute of it, and so did my son.
