I miss the days when Spoony was on the TGWTG site.

Critic said...

Han shot first!!!!

Jonathan M said...

Just saw this on Spoony's site. Goodness gracious, it seems April 1st is just every producer's excuse to make hilarious videos..pretending to be someone else. This is about the third time it's happened today!

Wait, maybe I missed something.. Oh no.. I hope Sage isn't pretending to be Ask That Guy again..

Critic said...

Ah ha! Han shot first!!!

Tyler said...

The return of Spoonkara!

OMG. First phelous and now spoony. Phelous Book of the dead episode parodying you for april fools day is funny as all hell. Even the cameo.
By the way Dark Horse has been reprinting the original marvel comics in Omnibus editions. Anyone wants to see how cool and weird these issues can be.

April 1. Otherwise known as "Make Fun of Your Media Colleagues" Day.

No comments yet? I guess that means they are being saved for later to avoid spoiling the joke. Okay.

I just wanted to say: despite Spoony's awful voice (compared to Linkara's that is) this was a surprisingly good imitation, and the analysis of the first Star Wars comics (which I remember reading myself back then!) was pretty well done. Too bad you didn't get to the parts with the telepathic hamsters or the giant green rabbit. Yes, seriously. XD

And that ending! LOL! Great job, Spoony and Lewis!

Three words for this. That was great.

Well, I could probably come up with more, but the above sums it up pretty well.

Kevin said...

What's sad is how it took a non-canon comic to finally answer the question of why Han never got around to paying off Jabba in-between IV and V.

97/100 for not accurate personality (I don't think Mr.Haug is that Squeeky or nerdy sounded)yet no AD, but still freaking great!

Doresh said...

Did Han Solo just made a T&A pose as a Stormtrooper Oo ?

This truly shows that Spoony is Linkara's best friend.

This is more of an homage than a parody, and it's the only video released on April 1 that serves as an actual reviewed. There's nothing Spoony said here that Linkara himself wouldn't have said (in fact, I'm pretty sure he would have went on a long tirade on how including such perverted things in what is supposed to be a family-friendly franchise is all kinds of wrong).

Phelous' video, on the other hand, was brutal mocking. And it was as accurate as a Selzter and Friedberg movie. Because to Phelous, Linkara is just another co-worker. To Spoony, Linkara is his best friend.

That's why Linkara still hangs out with Spoony and includes Spoony in videos even after he left Channel Awesome, while Phelous get shot at by Linkara.

It also makes me wonder...what's the current situation between Spoony and Marzgurl? Spoony was also Marzgurl's best friend. But after Spoony left Channel Awesome, we've never seen Spoony and/or Marzgurl acknowledge each other's existance. Are they still friends? Did they meet at MagFest, or at any other convention? Are there plans for Spoony to appear in any of Marzgurl's videos, or vice versa?

Also, I love "Princess in a Battle". I want that playing in the next "How To Train Your Dragon" movie as Astrid shows Disney what a REAL warrior princess looks like.

"That's why Linkara still hangs out with Spoony and includes Spoony in videos even after he left Channel Awesome, while Phelous get shot at by Linkara."

Phelous and I are friends, too, you know. =P He actually asked me permission to do the whole thing and I was more than happy to let him.

"It also makes me wonder...what's the current situation between Spoony and Marzgurl? Spoony was also Marzgurl's best friend. But after Spoony left Channel Awesome, we've never seen Spoony and/or Marzgurl acknowledge each other's existance."

Erm, I don't recall them being best friends and I've probably hung out with both of them more than you have.

...Exiled One, is that you?

El Konsolero said...

That was hilarious. While i liked your Snob Impression Linkara (you did him really well) Spoony just topped you imo. To be fair i don´t watch a lot of the cinema snob videos i´m more into Brads other stuff beside his main character, so i´m kind of biased because i like AT4W and Spoonys stuff more

It surely was a very good April Fools day.

El Konsolero said...

Oh and one more thing, i don´t know which one of you had the idea but letting vincent EL write another themesong was just brilliant.

Marvel does Star Wars pretty well!


...and now Disney owns both. O.o

Breno Ranyere said...

Spoony is acctualy very funny, wish he wasn't a games reviwer...

And i don't even like star wars but now i really wanna see Luke and Vader in final light-saber battle... in a comic... for some reason...

Kaze Koichi said...

"The return of Spoonkara!"

If I remember explanation from Warrior comic episodes correctly, he is still caled Linkara in his universe.

I find it hilarious how Linkara from our universe is Star Trek fan and Linkara from another universe is Star Wars fan. Looks like the multiuniverse likes to balance things.

"Spoony is acctualy very funny, wish he wasn't a games reviwer..."

And I wish he reviews only games. To each his own.

Scott Tibbs said...

Adopting Mr. Lovhaug's accent (specifically the pronunciation of "room") was a great touch in Mr. Antwiler's parody review. That kind of attention to detail is cool to see.

Misha said...

You pronounced it "bathrum." Awesome.


I laughed so hard I coughed. Thank you, Spoony.

Unfortunately, I can't load this video without allowing gorillanation.com to run scripts on my computer. Since gorillanation currently has a very poor rating according to WOT, google, NoScript, and HpHosts for the distribution of malware, I see no reason to do that.

Details here:

Your content is good, but it's not worth getting my computer rootkitted over.

TLDR: Get a new host. GorillaNation distributes malware.

"TLDR: Get a new host. GorillaNation distributes malware."

Oookaaaay I'm just going to assume this is spam, but in case it isn't, why are you asking *ME* to get a new host when it's Spoony's video from a different video hosting service that I usually use and you know you can just pop over to youtube to watch the video so telling me this is really not all that important?

This is the sort of silliness from the Star Wars comics I wanted to see, though Spoony's suspiciously specific denial in the parody of your theme song was great to.

Tia Wheeler said...

This review was actually very good and I like how Spoony managed to capture many of your quirks and mannerisms while retaining some of his own.

He's not planning on taking over your job as a comic book reviewer, is he? XD

Cat C said...

I really enjoyed this review. Thought it was very funny and I find it ironic, yet humorous, that we have printed proof Han shot first.

And no I'm not sure I used the right word up there.

Still thought it was funny.

This was wonderful, truly wonderful. Gonna re-watch that opening theme song like 5 times. :p
