Just a few thoughts on this weeks Episode. Overall I thought it was pretty funny, and Rick definitely injected some random hilarity into the episode, although it may end up killing everyone.
Honestly though, I don't know if that would necessarily be a bad thing. While the episodes have still been funny, the current campaign seems to be getting stagnant. I don't think there's really been any overall plan or direction in the last few months (at least since getting to the Blue Giant area), and most of the regular guests don't even have their own characters, they're just using the 'Loaners'. While its funny listening to the group travel through the countryside like Milo and Otis while occasionally cleaving some giant nutsack, also just like Milo and Otis (seriously, watch the directors cut, its fucked up), the new episodes lack the direction and story line that Sark's campaign had.
It seems like things really started to go off rails when the group decided to ignore the reverse-scuba barrel fish and went to the mystery continent. I mean seriously, how were you guys NOT interested in exploring what was going on with the barrel fish invasion?
At this point it may be better to wipe the group and start a fresh campaign where everyone has their own character, or perhaps something could happen to get the group back on track. Like they get taken prisoner by the giants, and maybe find out that the giants are trying to deal with the fish invasion too, and perhaps in a heated battle the giants have to release them as prisoners and fight along-side the group for the greater good, eventually earning a pardon for the groups past deeds.
Or maybe you finally get to the gold land, and find out that gold giants are hella-cool, and they hate the other giants and want to round them up in camps and pull off an old-world style genocide that the group could help with, or try and stop.
Really at this point it seems like there should be SOME kind of overall objective/plan/plotline, other than wandering aimlessly and trying not to die for an hour a week (as funny as it may be:)
Seriously though, how did the entire group decide to ignore the Reverse Scuba Fish!?!
