A group of eclectic individuals become unstuck in time, forcing them to go from world to world in the hopes of someday righting enough wrongs to return to their homes! ‎

Now that was a great episode, although rather shortly but very action-packed. Good job, girls n guys.
*thumbs up*

By the way, although one could see it from miles away, the solution... the "Todd-Solution" to both problems were awesome, plus extremely funny. so - well done.

Very well done.

How long did it take to apply the damaged Mechakara make-up?

*Looks at shirtless Jew Wario* Oh my.

"How long did it take to apply the damaged Mechakara make-up?"

About a half hour to an hour. I enjoyed it except for the last day where I had only gotten a few hours of sleep, but still totally worth it for the results.

maann, this was the best one, but im sort of sad that Brad got evil D=

but the line about the coffe was priceless

libraryguy said...

Oh my!

The film continues to impress.

One question about the Geek/Executor fight: why didn't the Geek use his magic against the Executor? He is Cloak 1, right?

Rob continues to kick ass. Who spent longer in the makeup chair, you or him?

(I forgot to ask last time: did Allison know about the RoboTodd outfit before she saw it?)

The entire fight sequence was pure awesome. I saw a picture of the DVD cover and I wondered just who Jew Wario was supposed to be, and I know I know. Did he actually poke you with the sword?

Oh no, the Last Angry Geek is gone. Who will review comic books on TGWTG now?

arw1985 said...

LAG??? Noooooooo....yeah I added that for dramatic effect as well. This was good but maybe a little short.

SO is your origin "Exiles" or "Sliders" (a tv show but it kind of has that same premise)?

That whole bit with the Nostalgia Critic thinking Linkara was the traitor...yeah, that might be humorous for everyone who doesn't watch Atop the Fourth Wall, but for the rest of us, with the Gun and Sorcery Arc, that's a little stinging...

LucasChad said...

You look great in that Terminator make up! Whoever did that deserve a Best Makeup Oscar!

Jonathan M said...

I loved the Mechakara makeup. Brad had the best parts in this episode, I think.

It's getting pretty good, but you're going into one territory that most consider a possible flaw... the villain characters we're suppose to hate are more likable and enjoyable than the heroes.
I'm not sure if I like the whole idea of the Malachite's Hand McGuffin being rendered pointless or useless so easily!
I think the Darth Snob costume would've looked a little better if ya'll put his suit's collar around the based of the mask as that little bit of exposed neck is distracting.
Did love the complete re-enactment of the Revenge of the Sith scene with the LAG. Love the bloody explosion but I still hate it when there is gore but yet none of it gets anywhere and sticks because it's all CGI! It was done with 8-Bit Micky but nowhere else?
Oh my Cthulhu!!! Why is it every one in here has to take their shirt off! Apparently all the ones that don't do it any other time outside as their chests seem to have never touched sunlight! So much white near transparent flesh! I haven't seen that since the last Discovery Channel special on Cave life!

I'm sorry Robo-Todd but in the assimilation process they removed your genitals (along with 80% all other tissues), but look at it this way you got free WiFi where ever you go! Oh, and you got a full library of all the dub-step you can ever stand!

Sooo.... more blood please!?

EXCELLENT Mechakara makeup, but...I feel the need to ask one little thing in terms of plot. How is Mechakara even...y'know...alive? Isn't he still...exploded? All that was left of him was a hand. Where does he keep getting these bodies? Does he have, like, a closet full of Linkara skins?

...actually that would be really, really sick and make a twisted kind of sense.

Jaded Jada said...

I can't even begin to fathom how hard it must have been for you to shoot that Jew Wario scene with a straight face. Frankly I'm impressed you pulled it off at all. XD

Basically, the speculation made in the Fantastic Four #1 review is what happened - the Magic Coin regenerated him.

I couldn't look at his face. XD Every single time I did I burst out laughing.

I'm loving this special so far!

As for the part iteslf... I'll be honest, I didn't really like how some scenes were practically lifted straight from Star Wars, with just a few words altered... But apart from that, I really enjoyed it! Rob's performance is still awesome!
Naked JewWario was priceless - I had to pause the video, I was laughing so hard!

I also thought the Mechakara makeup was incredible!
I really hope that's not the last we'll see of Mechakara in this...

Anyway, well done! I'm looking forward to the rest of it!

PS. I'm predicting a Star Trek V ending - "What does Ma-ti need with a critic?"

"Likable"? I could see maybe stretching the definition of likability to fit the likes of Terl and Zod, but as cool and threatening a villain as he is, I would never describe Mechakara as likable. He's a vicious psychotic machine that probably would have killed everyone aboard immediately if he didn't have an actual mission. He's an excellent villain, but I wouldn't exactly be shedding tears if the critics had turned him into a toaster. Same with the Executor; he does a great Palpatine parody, but seeing as he shares a lot of traits with our main heroes (hammy, disdainful of the opinions of others) I'm going to go with the package that doesn't include genocidal plans.
But I can see how you'd say they're more enjoyable, I'll give you that.

Exiles reference for the win :) (I hope you're an actual exiles fan Linkara, definitely some of the coolest elseworlds stuff from the last decade at marvel) love the Winnick/Bedard and Tieri runs. Claremont killed it though :(

On to the actual episode: Curious when the real Linkara will be showing up, hopefully the next part. Absolutely loved the make up though and the transporter effect was amazing.

Thoughts... Didn't see that first fight being so short. Like the make up for both Rob and yourself. The situation with Todd... I had a thought the other day that something like that would be used, I just didn't think he'd use it to break NChick out of her programming. I think this is probably the worst we've seen Mechakara get, otherwise I have no doubt that he'll be back later either here or (I consider this more likely with there only being 2 parts left) on AT4W again at some point.

This Star Wars ripoff just keeps getting better and better. Most intense installment yet.

Hope Todd stays as RoboTodd for the rest of this thing.

A moment of silence for our dearly departed Last Angry Geek. He won, only to die:'(

Revenge of the Sith!
Best Star Wars movie ever!

Oh, and Exiles
probably the only superhero team to consist purely out of cannon fodder

Oh, and awesome terminator make-up!

Gonzo said...

You're all great in this (poor Film Brain!), but JewWario takes the cake. I don't care if his attack was completely ineffectual, that was AWESOME.

Also, I was really impressed with your make-up in this episode. Whoever did that deserves lots of hugs and cookies (as do you, for having to sit around that long while it was applied).

Jarkes said...

Okay, everyone keeps saying there was an "Exiles" reference... since I've never read that, I have no idea what the reference was... Please explain.

The description for today's episode is a reference to Exiles.

"The description for today's episode is a reference to Exiles."

Which is an X-Men related comic about a team of characters from different alternate realities, who travel to other different alternate realities to fix stuff.

Can you please explain to me what the newsflash in part 1 about the 20 something year olds dying meant in the story, because I was confused.

Also, why is Mechakara in the movie more than you are? Could Doug just not think of anything for you to do in the story and so he wrote you out more or less.

The episodes keep getting shorter that the last one will be 2 minutes long.

"Can you please explain to me what the newsflash in part 1 about the 20 something year olds dying meant in the story, because I was confused."

It's partially a Terminator parody, partially Mechakara just being a jerk.

"Also, why is Mechakara in the movie more than you are? Could Doug just not think of anything for you to do in the story and so he wrote you out more or less."

It goes all the way back to the original ideas for Suburban Knights, wherein it was still kind of "Pirates vs. Ninjas," but Mechakara would be with the group and have to LARP along with everybody else, mostly because it was thought that it'd be funny.

I kind of put the kibosh on that idea because, in my mind, at least, Mechakara is not a character who suffers this kind of foolishness - he'd just as soon snap everybody's necks and keep on going. Having Mechakara, who has already been established to have many sci-fi elements about him (plus a serious personal threat amongst the critics rather than just the lingering possibility of another comedic battle with Turrell and Zod) makes him a better fit to have in the story than just having me there, where instead you have to invent a new running gag about me, like the singing in Suburban Knights.

Essentially, it just makes more sense from the story's perspective to have Mechakara around to be an obstacle than to have me just hanging around the ship.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"The episodes keep getting shorter that the last one will be 2 minutes long."

Part 6 is the shortest of the entirety of the miniseries. Parts 1 and 8 are the longest.

Konsolero said...

Great part. Love how Mechakara was fooled by Turrell.

But since it is a follow up to the other anniversary movies i miss malakite. Last time we saw him he was working at a coffee shop. Wouldn´t it make sense that he was in the movie too?

Were there any lines that were just thrown in from the six episodes shown so far?

Lewis Lovhaug said...

"Were there any lines that were just thrown in from the six episodes shown so far?"

The only one that immediately springs to mind is in this one - Mechakara's "You stupid, disgusting meatbags!" was an adlib by me, as well as the enraged yell into the communicator. One of the other takes has him crush the communicator (as well as it COULD be crushed, anyway), and throw it to the ground.

Ooh! And in Part 2, when we were in Dr. Insano's laboratory, I think the script called for Mechakara to say "affirmative" instead of indeed, but it went the way it was filmed. Rob and Doug are good writers, but I don't think they fully studied Mechakara's character (they also constantly referred to him as Mecha-Linkara, though not in the script. XD) and the way he spoke, preferring to make him more stereotypically robotic, so I tried to add in things that I knew he would say.

CaptainCalvinCat said...

@ Linkara: Erm: What does „Kibosh“ mean?
Plus, I had liked to see Mechakara LARPing and going “What am I doing here?”
And – just two other short things:

Firstly: You wrote Ooh! And in Part 2, when we were in Dr. Insano's laboratory, I think the script called for Mechakara to say "affirmative" instead of indeed, but it went the way it was filmed. Rob and Doug are good writers, but I don't think they fully studied Mechakara's character (they also constantly referred to him as Mecha-Linkara, though not in the script. XD) and the way he spoke, preferring to make him more stereotypically robotic, so I tried to add in things that I knew he would say.


Being a writer – erm… stop, I have to explain: I would not go that far and call myself “author”, but… I write. So I am a writer.
So, being a writer, who writes both, fanfics and own characters in those fanfics, I know, that it is mostly more easy, to write said “own characters in a fanfic-y environment, like for example: Starfleetcaptain Cal being stranded with his girlfriend in Agrabah…” Things get difficult, when we are incorporating pre-existing characters, like in that example: Aladdin and Jasmine.

It is complicated, because each pre-existing character has its own, distinct “voice” – so I wanted to ask you, if the two authors of that movie (Rob and Doug) did ask you for your input on this character? I mean, it would be the smart thing to do. After all, you are a member of TGWTG, it is not, that you would be someone from a TV-Show like – say: NCIS - or something like that.

Secondly: I have to admit, that Mechakara surprised me at the point, where he was talking to Terl…
I expected some kind of a Star Trek II reference, with him going “ TERL! TEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!”
And then, maybe ending up helping the others.

By the way, that is an interesting phaser-model… did your prop-lady build that for you?

Is it just me, or is anyone else disappointed that characters only get into Sci-Fi costumes for a few scenes. This happens to alot of people and I'm wondering why couldn't they all be in their costumes for the rest of the movie. I know it would be forceful, but at this point, I feel like it's tradition for the TGWTG anniversaries.

Just asking but when are you finally show up in the story and what character will you be inspired by?

CaptainCalvinCat said...

@ Anonymus:

No, actually, I quite like the fact, that they wear those costumes for a specific reason and wich such specific timing.

how much force did it take for you to not even crack a smile when jewario was hitting (more like lightly tapping) you while not wearing a shirt??? b/c i would have been laughing so hard!
