Man, that email rocked. But you start to think that this would be more of a grande finale of Sbemails. It's just too too good! It'll be kind of awkward to go back to just normal Sbemails, soon.

Woot. Great email.

Of course, it wouldn't show up on my computer until I went to the direct link...

Best lapy email ever. No doubt about it.

Favourite part was the 'second to third worst contest ever' part. Just superbly ridiculous. :D

I don't see a reason why this would be the last email...

Yes, I finished watching it now. I had to use another computer... (Mine's a bit too old I guess... 1998?)

Oh, right.

Best parts:
- Puppet SB
- Save the last email for meeeee!
- I'm trying to replenish some electrolytes, if you don't mind!
- And tiny-handed Strong Bad rubbed his head on the ground while our Modern Day Hero maxed and relaxed.
- Because mere mortal... this apartment... IS RENT CONTROLLED!
- Coach Z, if you're not going to eat that eyeball pear... I suggest you give it to someone who will.
- Ect...

Best e-mail ever, fer sher.

I liked how TBC did Homestar's voice backwards, and reversed it. That's hilarious.

Whoa, that was definitely the best one in awhile, probably since virus at least. Even if the rest of it sucked, it would have been SO worth it for the "Save The Last E-Mail" song and Da Huuuuuudge singing! Fortunately, it didn't - I particularly liked the Vector Strong Bad sequence and the reference to "sarsaparilla" (open mic dork moment!)

This one's gotta be an A. Way better than E-mail #100, IMHO.

So many styles upon styles! Singing, action, fourth-wall shattering, Twin Peaks references, and obscurica that only us wiki types will recall! (ie the blender/Gameboy and "In a bulding") There wasn't a second I wasn't grinning like an idiot, if not cackling like an even bigger idiot, in this extravaganza of an email. A++, a perfect score.

Wow, there are a lot more alternate Strong Bads than I thought there were.

As soon as I saw the words "alternate universe" I KNEW this was gonna be a good one...

And... I was right! Total craziness and inside jokes out the wazoo, just like Virus. :D The bit with Stinkoman and Vector SB was probably my favorite part ("WHAT IT IS MY DOGE?") but the whole thing was great. Singing Da Huuuuuudge! Strong Badman's "evil plan"! The return of Sterrance! PUPPETS! Only problem is that they forgot PBTC-style SB and Atari SB, but I can live with that... Tiny Handed SB and Vector SB are similar enough to them anyway.

Even the opening song was great on this one. "Flippin' off rainbows..."

And the Coach Z easter egg? Priceless. I knew they'd sneak one of Strong Sad's movie ideas in there somewhere. "I don't know what's going on, but I'm not going to discuss what I just did in my pants."

I'm the only one not to like this email that much... The comic part was the only thing that hit me, the rest of it was rather predictable. But maybe that's just because I'm bored.

I was a bit leery when it seemed like this was going to be just a Strongbadman cartoon, but as soon as it got to Strong Bad hopping alternate universes, the cartoon was awesome. Worthy of being Email 150?


Very Yes.

Best parts: puppet Strong Bad doing the belly dance, "Save the last email" song (still stuck in my head), Da Huuuuddge's wonderful singing voice, Strinkoman and Vector Strong Bad, and the glorious return of Senor Cardgage. Say, this brings about an interesting theory, then: Senor Cardgage came from an alternate universe to live in Free Country, USA.

The only thing missing was Sir Hotbod Handsomeface from the Teen Girl Squad.

I give this a 5 out of 5.

And yes, I do sometimes run all the water in my condo since its paid iin my monthly condo fee.

Right, so did they miss any other Strong Bads? What about when he's a little kid?

Anyhoo, I thought this was fantastic and immediately went to get the Botfriend and make him watch it. It was even better the second time around! The song at the end is a little misleading, though... At least I hope it's not the last email.

This email finds itself in a peculiar place, because while I don't think it was the funniest they've done by a fair stretch, it's still one of my favorites.

All of the inside references in it made it feel like TBC were giving me a high5 for being there for all of it, like half of the point was to celebrate us having stuck around for all of them.

I really liked the Twin Peaks reference in the easter egg.

Best line:

"Walkin' on clouds and flippin' off rainbows..."

Give it a couple of months, and it'll be a classic! Best SBEmail in a while! Brings a tear to your eye to see all the Strong Bads united at last! This SBEmail is on a par with Dragon, Japanese Cartoon and the rest!

Funny when Homestar tries to make a fruit smoothie with Strong Bad's portal... machine. And what's that I see? It's a classic Game Boy! Wow!

Also, I doubt this is really that important but did anyone notice how this email apparently ends with Homestar (and the blender) lost in an alternate universe somewhere? It'd be kind of neat if in the next email Strong Bad starts wondering why he hasn't seen Homestar lately, and then there's an easter egg where you get to see him hanging out with 1-Up and The Homestar Runner in some weird place. :P

That's what the Coach Z Easter egg was about - Homstar appeared in there, just like Strong Bad appeared in all the various places he'd been to...

I would like to see more Lynch references.

Maybe Homestar acting like Frank from Blue Velvet... or maybe not...

Woah. Three words: Awe. Some. Toast.

I saw the wiki article title (Yeah, that's how I check for updates. Quicker.) and squealed with happiness because even the title is great. Strong Badman reminds me of an evil neighbour of mine so that part amused me a lot. And ahh, I could talk for a while about how great this is but I won't. This didn't disappoint and was well worth the extra wait (and the easter eggs were great too).

All those alternate Strong Bads, and they forgot me! Man!:P

Actually, I didn't even notice until El Santo pointed it out. Awesome email, I say!

That was a-pretty pretty good. Chaotic but cool, and the song at the beginning and end were also pretty good. "Filppin' Off Raindows..."

I think it's just because they did a big production number. I recall that people got worried when "Rock Opera" came out as well, thinking it was meant as a grand finale of sorts. As for the whole "save the last email" thing, it's just common parlance in romantic songs (e.g. "save the last dance for me")

- Ect...

There's a weird joke I could make here, but whilst not being obscene, I suspect it doesn't fit the character of this forum

Seriously. This is my #1 favorite mail! I did miss PBTC but that's it. Actually I thought that they would change computers because his broke when homestar wend usidedown for April Fools Day, but still. Coffee couch Z= XDXDXDXD

Post subject:  Die Email

Guess what? Heimstern's posting at the forum! Crazy, eh?

So, I really don't think it was the best email ever. That's still long pants for me. But it was pretty awesome to take a whirlwind tour of so many a Strong Bad Doppelgänger like that. Happy hundred and fiftieth birthday, Strong Bad. Oh, and how do you type with boxing gloves on?

Honestly, I didn't think much of it was very funny. The comic bit, as said above, was just slow and long, and it dragged in other parts. However, it did build a lot of momentum towards the end, and the show-stopping number really stopped the show. I loved that. It would be my theme song, were I a compulsive e-mail checker named 'Strong Bad'.

However, even this bits that weren't very funny were invariably well-done. The creativity, craftsmanship, and effort was visible even when the humour wasn't, and that counts for points. Probably a 6.4 out of 10, plus a full point for the musical interlude makes 7.4 out of 10.

I thought the e-mail itself began rather awkwardly, but as soon as The Cheat showed up with a Game Boy in a blender, all was rawk! Even if my computer had some problems syncing the visuals and speech properly. BUT THIS IS STILL AWESOME! This also has what is officially the greatest e-mail opening song ever, even greater than the one in "personal favorites!"

"I'm walkin' on clouds and flippin' off rainbows..." Priceless! And what's this? SB and Strong Sad actually *gasp* getting along?

Best little moment that nobody's mentioned so far:

"You're going to adopt me?!"

Awesome, awesome, awesome e-mail. I have to admit I got a bit worried with the song, save the last e-mail for strong bad. But then I realized that TBC would not leave us hanging when they did the last e-mail. I think they would just tell us right out. Like in the updated stuff you know: ''Lat E-mail'' or ''Say goodbye to sbemails''
On the other hand, what a great freaking e-mail man. I have to admit that after death metal I noticed a big fallout, it'sa great to see them back at the top. Can't wait for 151. It's the beginning of a whole new era.
