Man, new favorite e-mail. Favorite part was when he was playing Peasen't Quest at the beginning.

Homsar shines again. It really does remind me of the crappy kids' shows out there these days. Bring back Sesame Street, 321 Contact, The Electric Company, Pinwheel, Square One... the classics. :)

ehh. I didn't really like this one, despite the presence of Homsar. maybe I just don't know enough about recent children's shows.

It was pretty good. It showed effectively the Peasant's Quest craze going on now :copter: .

The thing is: Most kids' shows aren't stupid *for the age group their aimed at*. Anybody over 7 years old shouldn't complain about how stupid Barney etc. is, because they're too stupid to watch something else. Barney's a great show for 7 and under!

That said, I think shows like Telletubies and Boo-bah are probably too stupid even for the target audience. TBC did a nice parody of shows like that.

Loved this e-mail!

I actually went to peasant's quest and typed "make friends with kerrek" and "buy kerrek a cold one". They didn't work :copter:

Despite the promising start, with Strong Bad playing Peasant's Quest and freaking out whilst trying to host a kids show, I thought the part with Homsar fell kinda flat.

All in all I give this e-mail a six out of ten myself. It was... mediocre, IMHO.

It was good until homsar ruined it. The easter eggs were not very interesting either.

Homsar was doing pretty good until he started to make sense.

That first show with Strong Bad is definatly a parody on Blue's Clues where the host also asks the audience to find A dog named Blue on the screen.

I tried "make friends with kerrek", and it just gave me the help screen. SB also got a different message for when Kerrek killed him and when he typed quit. I wonder if TBC might fix these to match the email...

Anyway, great email. Although the part with Homsar wasn't that good in my opinion, it had a strong enough beginning to pull it thru (what with Peasen't Quest and him hosting that TV Show).

8 out of 10

Strong Bad also smiled in "A Jorb Well Done".

And I would definitely watch the Homsar show. I probably wouldn't be that interested in it if I was one of the "littlest tiniest babies", but it would be awesome to see Homsar do his stuff all the time.

Homsar's show was frightningly lifelike.

Is it just me, or have the number of 'eggs in the sbemail's been going down? I only saw two this episode.

I agree with Pardalis. Flatten out with Homsar, but the parts with SB were just so darn funny that it redeemed the sbemail for me.

Hi! I'm back! This email's awesome. I got a personal laugh out of it because my name's Allison, and when I was little I used to tell everyone it was "all is on", and how cool I thought it was. I kinda liked the Homsar part...

I don't know what you guys are talking about. This is the first email that's made me laugh actually out loud on the first seeing in a long time. Other recent emails have been great, but I basically just smiled. This got a real-life "lol" from me, which means a lot. Go "for kids"!

Stave it off, 1 2 3, and now you can count to three!

I rather liked this e-mail. I once had the misfortune to watch Blue's Clues* and Strong Bad's show is a brilliant lampoon of that. I also thought that it was nice to see Homsar being used properly.

All in all, a good e-mail, and better than last week's.

*Trust me, it is not the kind of kids' TV show that you watch for a laugh. It is so atrociously dull that it's agonising.
