Wow, that combo with the 5-Dor shirt is a pretty good deal. This might be my first Homestar-related purchase.

I wonder if they have commentary?

Enh, seems like a kinda worthless DVD. It's pretty lame to call five of the 55 emails "free bonus emails." And there's no mention of special features. If it turns out there are, I'll consider buying it. Is it just me, or are TBC putting less and less effort into the DVDs and bonus features as the years go by?

Many say the major studios are putting less effort as well, but the only one I've noticed is Buena Vista. And I'm not even sure if that's still true.

And they still haven't made a fourth Everything Else DVD.

Maybe you should think of it as TBC putting more effort into their earlier DVDs' bonus features.

I think it's a good idea, and the combo with the shirt really is a great deal, so I went ahead and ordered it. I just hope it has the commentary tracks that the other DVDs have, because I've always enjoyed reading those on the Wiki and would love to hear some of them. =O

Which should leave Everything Else 3 owners with more time to transcribe the last two commentaries.

They don't seem to worried about that, though, because they have not all been finished yet... still.

I'm waiting for Everything Else volume 4. I might snag this at the same time, but TBC isn't getting another cent out of me until volume 4!

The Wiki says "Clumsyman" appears in the main menu. Is he the same person as Balding Man?

I think Clumsyman is that pixel-man on the Videlectrix logo.

Clumsyman is kind of like a live-action balding man, but not exactly.

A great DVD for those of us who don't want to invest in the entire collection but still would like to watch an online cartoon on our TV's for some reason. I've enjoyed watching these classic, almost forgotten (by me, anyway) sbemail hits the past few days. I don't know that I'd buy it on it's own (zero content beyond the emails and commentaries), but as a freebie with the five-dor shirt, it was definitely worth it. Thanks for taking more of my money, TBC!

You can see the video yourself by clicking "pine-fresh scent" on the main page's advertisement.

It's time to answer that burning question, are there commentaries on this DVD?

Now, did they include all the commentaries from the other DVDs? Did they add any? I can't answer these questions myself because I'm not allowed to buy DVDs off the Internet.

They apparently added some. Someone edited the caffeine page to show that there was a commentary for that on the new DVD.

Yeah, I haven't checked every single email on there yet, but they all seem to have commentaries and some have easter eggs.

For those asking about "Clumsyman"... that's not his official name as far as I know. I just thought it was a good name for him when I added the menu transcripts to the wiki page. I have no clue who the guy actually is, but he's not the balding man or the Videlectrix guy.

And as for those talking of new features on this DVD, the only thing I know (besides the new menus) is that at least 'caffeine' finally has a commentary. I'm going to look through all of the emails on the disc now to see if any e-mails have gotten commentaries new to this DVD... yeah, I'm lame like that!


Okay, I'm back...
The sbemails that have finally been given commentaries are:
'i love you'
'trevor the vampire'
'action figure'
and 'caffeine'

That's right ladies and gents... I do the dirty work so you don't have to! ;)
