I don't see what anyone would see in Rock Opera. I doesn't have any actual story or humor. The song isn't good, either. Usually I can at least understand why someone would like a cartoon, even if I don't. I don't understand with Rock Opera at all.

I find "guitar" slightly better than "tape leg," but it still feels too much like a wasted opportunity to me. I would have liked to have seen actual animation of Strong Bad, Strong Mad, and The Cheat performing rock.

No way, man. Strong Bad desperately trying to type out the onomatopoeia is a hundred times funnier than actually seeing it would be.

Don't I have a right to form my own opinion? Lately I've been thinking that you're actually harder on me than I am on anyone else.

Of course you have a right to your opinion. I also have the right to disagree with it. I even gave you a tangible reason why the email is better how it was done than it would be if they actually showed anyone playing instruments, so it's not like I'm arbitrarily picking on you. ("No way, man" is, in my opinion, a jocular way of disagreeing with someone. Imagine it in Strong Bad's voice.)

Videography. I mean, it's been the newest one for nearly six whole months! I guess sbemail206 will be released on Monday to make up for all those six months. I also dislike how in No Loafing, Strong Bad repeatedly jumps on Strong Sad saying he hates him and Strong Sad neither says nor does anything about it.

Wait, you hate videography because it's new? And Strong Bad has beaten up Strong Sad tons of times, and he rarely does anything about it.

As for my least favorite, long pants. It was stupid, not funny and uninteresting.

Actually, the early :sb: emails were terrif--terrible! Now, some kinda robot might be the first, but its continuosly talk, with the inafmous "From, Strong Bad". Tape-leg and car were bad, too. Ooh, and mile. Mile was meant to be bad, I know, but too bad.

So my final would be mile because

1) Strong Bad didnt check/make it.
2) Fake email
3) Supporting the Cheat way too much
4) Bad Animation.
5) I mean, like, jusy LOOK at it!

Sorry. I want a little :sm:

Here are the Worst 10:

10. long pants (just plain wierd and bad, its just :sb: and :hr: talking in pants.)
9. car (no humore used)
8. tape-leg (no plot)
7. mile (just bad)
6. some kinda robot (no humor, plot, and too short)
5. homestar hair (no humor, plot, too short, only 1 funny thing, the crap deleted part)
4. labor day (sb being mean---not too different at all)
3. your funeral (boring, no humor)
2. being mean (just like 4)
1. spring cleaning (short, no humor, sb enjoying himself while we sit hear, no plot.)

For me, it's "cartoon". I... really can't explain why; I just hate it.

Long Pants and superhero name, due to them not answering the question at all and simply being almost entirley making fun of the sender.

I'm pretty sure the song was intentionally bad.

I don't remember the title, but it was a very short Sbemail done on Strong Bad's first computer.

I guess its like any series really.

The first episodes/books/whatevers are often mediocre, or sometimes even duds. But you get to know the chars, and they should be at least sufficiently interesting to keep you coming for more.
Of course, sometimes the earliest work is the best, especially with music, and with most early work there is also those first few gems but still, on the whole. The first is seldom the best.

The real glory time usually comes afterwards (although there are a few very nice ones before it I think SB-emails truly started to hit its stride along the 20th mail), and then at one point it goes downhill (And judging by e-mails such as 'themepark' and 'dangeresque 3', that moment is still far away for H*R.)
And sometimes if series and such go downhill it gets out of the valley again, be it for a shorter or longer time. And sometimes it just plain jumps the shark.

H*R though would have to do at least 20 more e-mails of 'cheatday' quality in a row (or nearly in a row) before I'd worry about shark-jumping though!

Honestly, I expect the next one to at least be decent, if not awesome. ;)


Also, WHY DO so many folks hate Car?

Okay, couple things here. One, I know an absolute exception to that rule: Harry Potter. Then again, that series is kinda the exception to ALL the rules, know what I'm sayin'?
Two, I personally liked car (although it's nowhere near one of my favorites).
Three, I'm kinda way far in the future from when this comment was made, and I can now assure you no shark jumping has been committed. At least, not as far as I can tell.
Four, going back to the 'from the future' thing, yes, the next one was decent. The one after that - slightly less so. The one after THAT.......let's just say, I think it sank into a valley again.
'virus' was pretty good, I guess. But the ones after that weren't. But then, right about at 'rock opera', things got good again. Like, really good. Like, 'including my favorite emails' good. Then, at 'lady...ing', it sank yet again. But not too far. Then 'candy product', up. Then 'coloring', down. Then 'the movies' up. 'rough copy', down. You get the idea. I think at 'rated', or maybe 'specially marked', it got good and stayed good, right up until 'videography', which is the most recent email. But that's just one girl's opinion.
More on subject, my least favorite SBemail.....hmmm.....uhhh......tell you the truth, I think I had one at one point, but I'd have to go watch them all again to figure out what it was. Oh well.

Uhhh.....if you don't remember the title, you could at least give a few more details. I mean, hang on a sec - Yeah, there are 40 emails from the Tandy 400 era, the first era. So, you're gonna need to specify a little. Sorry for the double post, I skipped around a little.

Tape-leg is just some guy asking Strong Bad if his leg is made of tape. It turns out that there is a piece of tape on his leg. That is one of the most boring and pointless sbemails ever.

The early ones that lasted 2 minutes that were just straight-up email answering with no gimmicks.

My favourite email is the one where Strong Bad has tape on his foot. It's so funny and long and it has all the characters in it. It's even famous for being the best funniest email! :-| :rolleyes: :p ;) :eekdance:

I don't know why, but a couple of the Tandy sbemails were quite boring. I think Homestar Hair, butt IQ, i rule and stand-up to be exact.

They are short and don't really have that much sbemail charm in 'em.

edit: I would say tape-leg but once you understand the email, it is essential to understand the inside jokes regarding it on the site.

There are several that could qualify:

-tape-leg (really, really dumb; nothing happens and it's not funny at all) [saving grace: constantly mocked, even in the following email (Sue thought it was pathetic in SBE spring cleaning)]
-butt IQ (the stupidity of this email is greater than or equal to that of Strong Bad's old voice) [saving grace: "On a scale from 1 to awesome, I'm super great"]
-homestar hair (just an example of him having to answer every email)
-making out (just plain dumb)


Yup. Also:

That's actually one of my favorites :O It's slow moving but I thought it had some good jokes at the end.

I think a lot of the Tandy E-Mail were kind of boring. It was probably before the Bros. Chaps got into a rhythm of writing quality toons on a regular basis and before they establish their own sense of humor. I think it would be great if they remade some of the early ones slightly rewritten and updated to their new drawing style. :p

They do that in almost every email. That's kinda their thing.
