Hilarious e-mail, funny yet sad how primitive internet is there*expects a joke about IE from Jello B.* kinda like in 94 when it took you about an hour and a half to download a 5 minute video clip.
9/10.

It's funny. Finally, Homestar Runner feels like a quality animated comedy again. (I'm not a big comedy fan, so that's saying something.)

The computer I use right now used to act like that, but somehow, knowing more about computers and getting new browsers totally turned it around.

That was awesome! Seriously, one of the best ones this year.

Also, Strong Bad's creepy laughter makes a comeback!

Fwahaha. Good, good. Homestar was simply amazing.

"Doo doot. Do doo doot. Do doo doot. It's the hold music, do doot. Pa doo doot. doodoo doo doot. Hold music."

The part about Strong Mad sucking the bandwidth was kinda dull, but the animation was worth it. Plus I absolutely loved the Easter Egg at the end.

Great email. Certainly one that will fly over the head of the young'ins who haven't had to call tech support yet. ;) But that's what I like about it. This e-mail is sort of a reminder that Homestar is not just for kids.

And I just got the jibblies once Strong Bad started up his creepy laugh again.

So that's what he said, eh? I thought it was, "No, I am not an idiot.":p

Unfunny...

EDIT : to answer obligatory flames that I see coming, yes I registered today just to say that. This is the first time (with the Cheat Commandos) that an HR cartoon leaves me totally indifferent.
Good animation, good voicing but feels like a cheap update when you know what they are able to do.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! wow that was classic XD!!

And the whole call center thing is SO TRUE! Take it from someone who has worked at a call center before (No, I wasn't a telemarketer. I promise X__x;; ) It's just...wow. So true. XD!!

The ending with Bubs and Strong Bad was kinda creepy though :eek:

I give this a 2 thumbs up :cheatgrin:

Oh man. I don't think a SBmail has made me laugh so hard in a while. TBC's animation is getting better, too.

really funny/10

Holy poo, but Bubs and Strong Bad's maniacal laughter at the end was just about the creepiest thing I've seen all week. o_O And, as someone who was stuck on an ancient 14k connection for years up until only about four years ago, I totally feel SB's pain here. XD; And Homestar was absolutely adorable as always. "Doo doo doo, it's the hold music..."

(Also, I cracked up when Homestar said "Can I have your identity theft?" Not because of the line itself, but because it's eerily similar to this weird inside joke between me and someone else IRL. Yeah, I'm strange. :P)

I'm surprised there wasn't an easter egg download link for the dancing rodent animation (even without sound). I'm sure about a hundred people on these boards alone would make it their avatar.

That was one of the best E-mails of all time. My dad will love this E-mail. He had to suffer more then once with tec support.

It reminded me so much of when I had Dial-up internet. I had to wait at least 30 minutes for a five minute video to load up.

Fortunetly, I have cable now :p

The tec support with Strong Bad and Homestar was the best.

:hr: Can I borrow your identy theft? Or send you a few hundred free CD's? No I am not from India. Madam, your CD case is not a cup holder.



I think TBC has been around the internet quite a bit :p

The email really picked up once Strong Bad marched over to Bubs.
I guess that the bizarre humor appeals to me more ;)

Heh... it's all so true. You can tell that TBC were having some trouble with call centres before this.

I like all the new graphics that TBC are churning out, not bad at all!

Pretty decent, but I didn't think it was anything too special.
Did anyone else get the gist that the Chaps were experimenting a bit when they made this one? The background when SB was walking to Bubs was new to me and pretty neat lookin', and I can't remember the last time they used a photo-realistic image(s) like the CD-star Runner egg.

Heh. The funny thing about this email is, just as he was about to call tech support, my computer froze. xD

That one was more...cute. But still pretty funny. It ended pretty...strangely, though.

Uhm...Prooty cool/10

I love this one. The dancing rodent was....weirdly funny, and Strong Mad's high voice was great.

Wow, that was awesome. I'm pretty sure that SB's creepily high-pitched laugh is a ref to A Jorb Well Done, where he laughs the same way. All in all, I give it a 9/10.

P.S. SB's march was hilarious.
