Great email!! I give it a 100/5.

We're on a collision course with sultriness!

Gahh - I might have been the first one to start this thread if my compy hadn't frozen. :p

Anyway, it was good, and a big improvement over Boring (Really), even if not quite up to the level of Rampage or Do Over. The parts where Strong Bad was actually modeling (as well as his karate chopping the KOT) were entertaining, and I especially found it interesting that this is the second thing in a row on the site that either SB or a puppet variation of him was wearing a shirt in. Stupid coincidence (magazine)? ;) It kinda rambled somewhat near the end with the ads that weren't all that funny though, so I can't give it more than a B, but I still dug it.

Ohh, I see a lot of potential with the quotables:

"I'm casually late!" and "I'll pencil you in" and
"Can you handle my style? NO. You can't handle my style"

I particularly like how Strong Sad's belly sounds like a basketball when hit. The only thing I didn't know was that tennis rackets were so casual and fashionable!

I can see the homestore selling bottles of Colognac to sweaty college kids.

i think the tennis racket thing was put in there just for an extra laugh. Cause you wouldn't expect it. Cause TBC be cool like that. I thought all of the quotes were funny...But, unlike everyone else, i'm nto going to quote the entire segment; we all saw, i'm sure we can remember. I think they could have done a lot more shopts though...With more styles and such. I wonder if they'll make a "the prints" thing...Also, it was pretty funny when SB did the whlole slowmation "a-ha! teehee!" look....yeah...quality..a lot better than that thing they threw out last time.

I liked it a lot. I think it was cool how Strong Bad got a hundred and eight dollars out of the deal. Did anyone else notice the eyes of the picture of homestar when he holds the magazine blinks? Its kinda creepy.

I'll give it a :cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: :cheatgrin: / 10 (grin =2 reg = 1)
It could've been longer, though.
All in all a solid email.

It was OK. I thought the magazines were really funny, especially Homestar's. And I liked "Husky-headed kids need clothes, too" in Strong Bad's magazine. Oh, and I can relate to "Back to school? It's not even July!" I find myself saying that a lot.

Really great E-mail, in my opinion. I really liked the photoshoot thing. Especially liked the the 'slow-motion afterimage' type turning of the head thing goin' on.

This was a super great email. But you know what? I think Strong Bad is getting soft... I get the feeling we'll be seeing more of this side of him in the future. Maybe puppet modeling?
Oh, and my friend will totally freak out (in a good way) when she comes back from camp and sees this.
Favorite quote: "I'll pencil you in."

I thought it was a pretty good email. Maybe a 7.5 or 8/10. Lots of good quotes, though. The magazines were funny too.

The email was great, but there was only 1 (not very good) egg.

7/10

This was a nice e-mail. I loved all the quotes when he was modeling. I had to watch it twice though because the first time I fell outta my chair after he karate choped the KOT.

I thought it was a pretty good email. 8/10.
I mostly thought the part with the Strong Bad and Strong Sad dialouge was funny.

I loved this one. My favorite part was Strong Bad's little laugh. I've been trying to perfect my impression so I can drive my girlfriend crazy, but I'm not very good yet.

"Ha-hah."

My favourite part of this email was the way they were showing ads that looked nothing like Strong Bad imagined them. And also the magazines at the end.

My favorite part was when Homestar came and randomly started dancing.

"Guess who made the cover of Stupid Coincidence Monthly?"

8/10

I thought this one was pretty good. My favourite moments: Strong Bad's husky head being the same size as Strong Sad's husky body [insert basketball sound here] and the Colognac. Super great.

Given my line of work, I loved this email! 111/10 w00t!

I think my fav part was SB karate chopping the KoT before he went on the shoot. I'ma karate chop someone before my next shoot. Rar!

I loved how simply flamboyant Strong Bad was here. Top marks. Topper marks. Insert meaningless number rating here. Maybe we can go an email without "losing touch" or "jump the shark" being mentioned.

am I the only one who thought this e-mail was kind of disturbing? :eek: *winces at various fans glaring at me* Sorry! Usually I adore all of the e-mails but for some reason this one was kind of hard to watch. I actually sort of thought Strong Bad was a little out of character.

Don't get me wrong...it was funny...but I guess I would have done it a bit different is all
