Hm... interesting. It was a pretty good email, but if they kill off the Lappy this soon, I'm gonna be... upset, I( geuss you could say. Not that I like the Lappy a whole lot, but killing it off this soon would overdo the compy-destroying gag. I don't think they'll do that, though. I bet the next email will go on as if nothing happened. Or they'll do some "Previously on Strong Bad Email" and show clips of stuff that didn't happen, [i[then[/i] start the email as if nothing happened.

But anyways, pretty good email

Holy crap, what an ending! :O Normally I'm not too keen on cliff-hangers, so it was fun to see SB make fun of 'em. But the cliffhanger to this e-mail is the hangiest I've ever seen! Wait, is hangy even a word? Oh well, who cares, we have more imporant things to worry about... like whatever happened to poor Lappy!

Wow.

This email was brilliant.

Not just great, but brilliant.

And not your garden variety brilliance, this was brilliantly brilliant.

10/Freakin' 10, man.

Awesome indeed. Very much funny. My least favorite part was probably the SBASAF scene, and even it was pretty good.

I just hope this cliffhanger is actually resolved next week instead of some stupid excuse or ignorance. I wanna know who stole the Lappy!

I bet it's the Poopsmith! :poop: Dun dun dun...

As long as the Lappy isn't dead that is...

D: Nuu! The Lappy's gone... It's been two years, I think, since he got the Lappy, so yeah. (I don't know, really... I started watching Homestar Runner about a year ago)

It was an okay email. Homestar stating he's pregnant made me spaz out.

I feel bad for the King of Town and Homsar...

Highlights:
This dinner party is top dollar!
You're a good friend, Strong Bad! (echo, echo!)
You missed unmasking the Thnikkaman! Because you have really bad hand-eye coordination!
Tune in next- Oh, none of that, just get to resolving. Okay!
No, you're Homestar. Runner. The male.

All those had me Roffling. I hope this isn't the end of the Lappy, though. I never actually thought a cliffhanger email would end with a cliffhanger. Oh, Sweet Lady Irony!

oh, and, http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php/cliffhangers

obligatory wiki link :)

Holy crap. Was NOT expecting that ending. At all. o_O Though I guess I really should've seen it coming, given the theme of the email and all. Heh.

But yeah, I thought this was a pretty darned good one overall. Best parts: the literal cliffhanger scene with Homsar and the KoT, "You have bad hand-eye coordination!" and "No, you're Homestar. Runner. The MALE."

It does seem like it's a little too soon to kill off Lappy just yet, but then again it has been around for about two years and 40 emails now. Definitely looking forward to next week, at any rate! :D

Apparently they forgot to keep Deauxregarde (sp) in the fridge. He probably smells by now.

Heh, all the cliffhangers were of the false-alarm variety. Which most cliffhangers are unfortunately... We won't know until next sbemail if this one will be resolved through a gag (or pretending it didn't happen) or actual plot progression!

Big Lebowski refs (why else would the key taped to the page be bloody and referred to as a "little toe"?) mean extra points all the times

Looks like Coach Z might want to capture the Thnikkaman because he envies his coolness. That guy gets more disturbing every day!

teh verdict: B-

Wow, this was the best e-mail in a while.

RETURN OF HOMSAR AND THNIKKAMAN. And they put the Thnikkaman in in a not-tacky way!

And Homestar and Strong Sad were great.

I do wonder what'll happen, though. I would like to see Strong Bad answer an e-mail on The Cheat's iMac or something and resolve it at the end of the e-mail, but judging from the Homestar easter egg, I'm guessing it'll be ignored.

Not the best email ever, but it was all right.

"I'm pregnant!"

Yeah, I seriously doubt this is the end of the Lappy.


I give it a 6 or 7/10.

This e-mail was AMAZING. Return of the Thnikkaman + "I'm pregnant!" + cliffhanger at the end = SO GOOD! It definitely made up for last week's e-mail, trading cards. This one is up there for my favorites with No Hands on Deck! and 20X6 vs. 1936. I give it an 11/10.

I think we all can agree that this deserves a hearty...

DUN Dun DUUUUUN!

Loved. It. SO MUCH. Especially the cheesy Forgotten Produce part, and even more Thnikka-action! "Because you have bad hand-eye coordinatiooooon!"

Oh, man, this email was awesome. Especially with the edition of Coach Z, and he rocks. Did anyone else think Homsar's voice sounded different? Or is it just me?

But it gets minus for cliffhangers, I don't like them. :p And the fact that now Strong bad can't make comma's or less than symbols. XD

A resounding 8.7/10.

Man, this is the best cliffhanger email since montage. I'm stoked for next week. Or they might start releasing toons and answering machines and whatnots, prolonging the suspense. Or maybe they'll take the route of Stinkoman 20X6, and never release another email ever again.

I think it was the KoT. Think about it. He's got motives:

-Strong Bad dropped him off a cliff
-He wants to check his email on a working computer (KoT menu, Email button.)

Oh, and 10/10 for the SBEmailness of it.

:homsar: This sbemail is top dollar!

Plot in Homestar? I got to the wiki in time to edit the trivia section? THE WORLD IS TURNING UPSIDE DOWN

*ahem*

Yeah, pretty noice email overall. It's always cool to see Homsar and Thnikkaman again, so I was content. Space Captainface was the weakest part of the email, but then the pregnancy part was just so classic Homestar. Can't wait to see the resolution, and I'd be willing to bet that this is the end of lappy, since it's been about 21 months since it came. I'll give it a B-.

i dunno about homsar but Coach Z sounds weird to me...

it was a pretty good email, i especially liked the homsar and king of town hanging off the cliff, and homestar's easter egg at the end

as for the lappy i think it will be back next week without explaination

Okay, I seem to have gotten over my Lappy-panic. Just hope this isn't the end of an era already...

*ahem* The scene at the beginning with the "cliff hangers" being "resolved" was amusing (Homsar's non sequiturs always crack me up), as was Coach Z's attempts at unmasking the Thnikkaman. I thought the scene with Space Captainface in the Forgotten Produce Belt was sorta funny, and Homestar's hysterical "pregnancy" was amusing in a vaguely disturbing sorta way.

Awesome! I don't think I've laughed that much since ISP (sbemail 152). Homsar's hat, Coach Z's lack of hand-eye coordination, reviving the Thnikkaman, the Lappy's "little toe," the Announcer with the "Tune in next--" "None of that!" "Okay...", and ESPECIALLY "secret-sorcret." 9/10. A great pick-up from the lag that sbemails seemed to have lately...

Good email, I liked it most when Strong Bad cut the cliffhangers ropes.

I give it 89%.

Also I thought of 3 possibilites for the next episode and 2 of them say the lappy era continues.

Woah.


That email rocked. A lot. First appearance of the Thnikkaman in a while, which is totally sweet.

I think the best part of this email was seeing the KOT and Homsar as literal cliffhangers. Strong Bad's action of tossing them snacks afterwards was kinda cute. I pretty sure this is the first time we've seen Homsar's hat make a complete loop in mid-air.

Rest of it...ehh, not so sure.

I always like anything with Coach Z in it, but what I wonder is why the Thnikkaman let Coach Z get away with as much as he did? You think he would have thwarted the coach long before he got tied up and stuffed in the locker. Perhaps he was holding out for his disembodied choir to sing the bad hand-eye coordination lyric.

I didn't think the middle portion was funny at all. I hope they don't try to push the whole Space Captainface thing.

Third segment...just...weird. The whole "I'm Pregnant!" thing strikes me as a gimmick to get a cheap giggle. Maybe I'm just getting old. I kind of liked Strong Sad's clearly floored and disturbed response, though.

Actually, I might be alone on this one...but I hope the Lappy stays computer-napped. XD The Lappy Era wasn't bad, but the Lappy itself always creeped me out a little. That voice...

Highlights include 'I'm pregnant' and the Doreauxgard aftermath, though the rest of it was still prime-cut awesomnity.

(it was biscuit-dough-hands-man!)

To be honest, I wouldn't be suprised if they didn't conclude it.

Hmm. That was a pretty okay email, but this time, I'd have to say the easter eggs were the best part. Especially the Coach Z/Bubs one.

Coach Z :coachz:
Nah, I bet if you take away them cool shades and rip that "TH" off his chest, underneath, you'd find a thin green man with a big ol' "Z" hanging from his—

Bubs :bubs:
Coach, are you accusing yourself of being the Thnikkaman?

Classic. Though how anyone could NOT tell that the Thnikkaman is Bubs, even with the cool shades and "TH" tag on his chest, is beyond me. Just goes to show that Homestar isn't the only one who's dumb in Free Country USA.

Also, I have to admit that just like almost everybody else, I loved the "I'm pregnant" scene. Specifically when Strong Sad said "You're Homestar... Runner. The male." :p.
