I like. I like a lot. You have my undivided attention. Can't wait for the epicness to continue.

Steve said...

Well worth staying up till 1 for. Will be waiting with the utmost anticipation.

Trevor said...

Huzzah for the epicness! So far, it's pretty awesome! I especially like how your costume is tied to AT4W and your love of Arthurian lore.

Can't wait for the next part!

Jesse said...

Love the costumes in this. Todd pulls his off the best, whereas Luke looks more like Ron than Harry.

Mati could come in handy, but that might only be later.

The opening was awesome. The part after the opening credits was hilarious. Looking forward to more!

libraryguy said...

We're one part into it, and I'm already wondering how you guys are going to top it next year! Bravo to you all!

nightmareshadow said...

Now this is a quest! Onward! To glory, to honor, to the cast eventually beating the living ass crap out of the critic for dragging them all into this!

HUZZAH!

This was amazing. I love it, I can't wait for the rest.

By the way kudos on your cool King Arthur costume, very nice.

What the hell was down Jewario's pants? Or is that a bad question? You do look pretty good with a sword, Lewis.

I'm slowly laughing at the lion costume and how almost every single one of the comments on the teaser thought it was the Cowardly Lion, but then turns out to be Aslan. Reaction of everyone must be the same as what all of yours were. ROFL.

ONLY HIS PENIS.

...Nah, I kid. XD I can't remember exactly what we used for the effect - it was either a pickle or a squash, IIRC.

Personally, I'm not that big on swords. Not that swords aren't cool, of course, but even play-fighting with them it always feels like I'm going to lose my grip on them or that an impact will cause it to vibrate and not make me flinch. If I'm going to use a bladed weapon, I'd prefer it be a katar - something that can be affixed to the back of my wrists so my movements aren't keyed to something I can drop.

You know it's bad for you, but you eat it anyway!!

I'm not sure what I just watched, but it was glorious.

This is really good. Much better than Kickassia, and I kind of liked those episodes. The story is better; I really like the epic tone, and also the serious tone at the beginning. I also laughed and chuckled alot. =D I really love how NC (the character of course), is so dramatic, and has so high opinions of himself and his goals, even though he's a joke! :P That is a part of why NC is great; he makes jokes about himself alot.

First of: I loved it.
The opening with Orlando was awesome. The fact that he is not an well known face on the site(christmas special aside) makes him a good choice for an opponent, the fact that he plays his character seriously from the go gives him a nice bad guy vibe. Especially when compared to the TGWTG crew, who are all just going grudhingly along with another one of the Critic's schemes.

Is it a great movie worthy of the epicness that you put in the trailer? No.
Is it a great amount of fun to watch you guys doing funny stuff for the sake of having fun and hoping to entertain your fans? Oh Yeah!!!

My guess is that Liz was one of the Nazgul characters in the end.

Peace

Also Linkara's reaction to magic not being real :D

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"My guess is that Liz was one of the Nazgul characters in the end."

That would be correct. ^_^ You can spot her for
-Being the one with breasts
-Or, if you want to be horrible and make jokes about the first point in relation to the other two, she's also the one wearing the fingerless leather gloves.

Actually, I knew she was on the production team, but more as behind the screens work, so she wouldn't be recognisable in a character(possible cameos down the line not counting) a faceless role would fit what she described as her part in the production process.
That and reason number one ;p

Tab said...

Aww poor Bill. He reminded me of '90s kid. Was he related? '00s kid, perhaps?

Alain M. Diaz said...

Haha! Great job to you Lewis to everyone else. Its only the first episode and I very much enjoyed it.

And I gotta tell you, I'm so glad to finally find out who you were dressed up as. I had almost everyone's fantasy character figured out except for you and Handsome Tom (Paw took me a few viewings to figure it out). Your costume was particularly hard cause it could have matched any number of night characters and the ATFW logo on your tunic didn't help narrow it down off the bat.

So out of curiosity: who selected everyone's characters? Did Rob and Doug cast you all ahead of time, or did you get to offer up your own choices?

Mountain King said...

Alright then, time enough to sit back, and wait until this plays out.

Even I have no idea where you and the gang are going with this I can guarantee it's going to be interesting.

Kerry said...

This is shaping up to be great! So many parts that had me laughing. Loved the opening...I was wondering how the Critic would "convince" the team to get together again after their experience in Molassia. Poor Joe and Spoony...no new car :-(

The rivalry plot between Luke and Film Brain looks to be very funny. Speaking if which, is Luke ok? Haven't seen anything from him in awhile...is he just taking a break for the summer?

Kreachure said...

Can I ask why for the epic pose march-up-the-hill thingie, you kept going to the right instead of the left until the very last minute? It looks like you almost messed up the whole take!

Anyways, hilariously epic stuff as expected. :)

Alex Stritar said...

There's one thing I can't help but wonder. How long did it take the first person who got there to relize there was no car?

A Tribe Called Helloween said...

I say this with all due respect.

I'm not watching this until it gets bootlegged to youtube. Sorry Lewis, but Kickassia was so unredeemably awful, TGWTG lost their blip money privileges when it comes to their movies and anniversaries. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

If I end up actually liking it, then I'll go back and watch it on blip and give you guys your ad money. But until then, nope. Going the "illegal route"

**fucks off to waiting patiently for the next AT4W**

FHHO said...

why did you bring ur shit to thecinemasnob.com this is ur website you should stick here cuz you like the other TGWTG staff are crap so stay here where you belong linkara.

Grendle1853 said...

Did you pick the character you'd dress up as or did Rob and the Critic? Great episode thus far, it was really worth the wait!

nuttersinc said...

Oh so that’s why you all agreed to do the Critic’s latest craze idea. You should all have said no and then set up a rival website just to piss him of.

Poor Ma-Ti :( Personaly I think his powers of controlling animals with HEART, that were in the mentioned in the comic you reviewed ages ago, would be really useful.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"Can I ask why for the epic pose march-up-the-hill thingie, you kept going to the right instead of the left until the very last minute? It looks like you almost messed up the whole take!"

I can't recall EXACTLY why it was, but I recall one of two explanations:

-I thought we were splitting up into two directions at THAT point and took one step off in the wrong direction before I realized what was happening and turned in the correct one.
-Everyone kept turning to the side earlier and earlier to the point where we might as well have started to go in a diagonal line to the camera as opposed to going forward and turning and doing it that way was my attempt to get it back on track.

Hey, moron! Welcome to my site, where every comment requires my approval. I tend to let everything but spam through so as to give it a chance for people to respond to themselves, but rest assured my patience runs out quickly, especially if there's a trollish individual who keeps posting the same idiotic thing over and over and over and over and over without adding anything new to the experience.

Keep that in mind during your stay.

Anonymous said...

One more thing; The quality in this show is alot better than Kickassia. Do you know if NC has studied film making alot in order to improve (Can't remember if he's the only guy who wrote, directed, and edited this movi, so I just use his name)?

CMWaters said...

Great work on the King Arthur costume, Linkara. Prop Lady, right?

Also, since you're a fan of Arthurian lore, I might as well ask you: what's the difference between the Sword in the Stone and Excalibur? Always wondered about that.

Kathryn said...

A car? Really? You got a spaceship if memory serves, AND Neutro. Why the heck would you want a car?

I think the thing that suprised me most in this part was Ma-ti. I knew he was going to be there, but last time he came in after the half way mark. I thought he'd be one of those Nazgul people shown at the end rather then looking for a contact. Oh well. Sorry you ran out of sharpie.

Lucas said...

"Magic is not real" The shit just hit the fan.I love these little moments between you and the critic. I hope there are more.

Because of your hat and interest in power rangers, I think you are the coolest guy on TGWTG. Keep teh epic coming!

Lundarigirl said...

Ohhhh, you guys look like you had so much fun. I want in on this! if I were apart of this year's story, i would dress up as Lightning from final Fantasy XIII.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"Also, since you're a fan of Arthurian lore, I might as well ask you: what's the difference between the Sword in the Stone and Excalibur? Always wondered about that."

The sword in the stone is ACTUALLY a sword called Caliburn. During a battle with (I THINK, it's been a while since I read it) King Pellinore, Caliburn was shattered and the Lady of the Lake gave Excalibur to Arthur.

Octo7 said...

Love it! Best anniversary so far.

Ming said...

Awesome first part! Loved the epic credits. The prologue featuring what I can assume is the main villain (played by the angel from the Nostalgia Critic Xmas 2010 special) and the hapless hippie reminds me of No Country for Old Men.

I know that Iron Liz is playing one of the Nazghul-type enemies. I think the Last Angry Geek is also one of the Nazghul-type creatures. Who is playing the last one?

SuperNintendoChalmers said...

I love your reaction to "Magic isn't real."

rdfox said...

I like a LOT. Just one comment, though, which probably should be passed along to Doug (but I don't have an account over on TGWTG.com)...

Is it just me, or did it seem like Orlando was really, really poorly mic'ed in the pre-title sequence? Even with my speakers turned up all the way, I could only barely hear him, even when the hippie was blowing my ears clean off.

Just a little something that might bear some tweaking in the DVD version, be it by playing around with the levels, or just having Orlando dub over his dialogue there in a "poor man's ADR session"...

(Verification code: Shiltera. Isn't that one of Hawkman's girlfriends?)

TimeTravelerJessica said...

I was laughing pretty hard. JewWario is working that Jareth costume!

I like the Cinema Snob's costume. I think Indiana Jones counts as modern adventure fantasy or something, so it works!

And yay for Richard Harris's King Arthur! (In case you were wondering, and I'm sorry if someone else already has pointed this out, the late Sir Harris was a knight ... in Denmark. Never in England, but a knight is a knight.) Camelot is one of my favorites too!
