I haven't seen an email THIS bad since old comics. It was just a huge clunker. We did, however, get to see far away emails. Bubs acted kind of out of character. Sice pom-pom (the email), all Bubs has cared about is price.

Looks like TBC overslept, this one was okay.

I liked it but it seemed a little undercooked. they could have spent some more time on this and releced it tomarrow and it would have rocked. I did like that the battery ran out... someone said that could happen in the animal thread.

I liked this e-mail. It's nice to see Bubs in an e-mail. He's so under-used, so this was a nice treat. What I found a little weird was the way Homestar was acting. I know he's not the smartest, but this was a little too much. All in all, solid e-mail, good prize!

The email itself was similar to "other days". There were many funny jokes in there, and I always find Homestar Runner funny.

"And I'm gonna be two times two"
"I'm not running a country club"
"I've got so many facets, you don't even know what facets are"
"Is Strong Sad cool?" "Oh come on."

I don't know why people say things like this. Personally, I liked this email a lot, and I don't see why people have to insult it like Lunar did.

1. It was cool. First - Strong Bad under a kitchen table. Hilarity. Tons of little jokes, and the Invention thing with Homestar. Pretty awesome.

2. I finally got to do a transcript! I first saw on the emails page someone had made Part Time Job. I thought it was a joke or something, as I had checked HR about five minutes before. I went to the site and there it was, in all its awesomnity.

How long does it usually take to transcriptify an email? I found myself wasting time for an hour.

In closing, awesome.

I was actually thinking that when he said that. Possible fun fact? Possibly....

Eh, 7.5/10 at best. It draws some chuckles the first time through, but if you watch it some more, it gets stale. Homestar talking about 'the gweatest undowsea epoch evow filmed,' he may be spoofing some quotes about the famous film '2000 leagues under the sea.' Moral: Good, but not exactly what I was hoping for after two weeks of waiting.

it was good, but in the transcript, i dont think that Coach Z said "Charge, Pom-Pom" it was more like "Chorsh, Force!" what do you guys think?

So we're not allowed negative opinions now?

This is perhaps one of the worst emails , in the same league as tape-leg. It was completley devoid of humor. It's hard to say why, but it was just irritating.

This e-mail could have used some more thought. Although it's not as bad as tape-leg, a day or two more would've made a difference.

Look, what I meant was that when people insult someone's work that they spent hours on, it's just unappreciative. Since I use Flash, I know how hard it is to make a simple animation, much less than a gargantuan one. I did overreact, but there is no reason to actually insult their work.

It was kinda' so-so. There were a few small jokes, but nothing that stood out particularly well. I had hoped that TBC would spent last week working on something good but this is what we get...

Maybe a 6-ish outa' 10[/i]

I didn't know about this email until I saw this post as it's not in H*R updates yet. Great
8.5/10
Best Line: "Is Strong Sad Cool?" -Bubs

Meh...I really didn't find it that funny, or even cute. And it's not that hard to make me laugh when it comes to HR. But this one was just bland...not nearly as good as the great stuff we've been getting lately, and severely late at that. I don't think I laughed once, actually. Thought it IS nice to see Bubs and Pom Pom.

Y'know, I distinctly heard something like "Choshieforge!". You're probably on to something, Schmallow.

I thought it was a decent email, if there hadnt been such a long wait since the last one i would probably have liked it more, but given the large build-up i was left a little dissapointed. Still though, solid email, and im glad they're back to work.

I just thought of something, woulden't it be funny if strong bad tried to check his email next week and the same email came up because he haddent fully replyed to it... nevermind.

I don't see what everyone is complaining about this was not in leuge(sp?) with the Decemberween toon, But I mean "in the same league as tape leg? could you people please stop expecting masterpeices from TBC (since it is drawn it is considered art) every week. Even the best artists have bad paintings but I thought this email was funny.

This email was okay, not the best, but not as bad as the bad emails, like tape-leg. Some good points:
*We get to see Strong Bad taking advantage of having a laptop: answering his email in a different setting.
*We get to see the Lappy's battery run out.
*Pom-Pom bubbled, and it's been a while (like a year) since Pom-Pom was in a toon and bubbled, but that may not be important to you. It's to me, sort of.
*I liked The Cheat's dance and costume.

But I didn't like Bubs being too bossy to Strong Bad, acting like a bossy boss to his least favorite employee.
