I'm going to start out by lauding TotalBiscuit for his post. Unlike many of the comments you see on these things, he posted an intelligent, thought out piece that consisted of more than a string of abbreviations with a hint of insulting banter, and thus invited intelligent debate. It's a shame that so many people felt the need to put "Too Long Didn't Read" in their replies, because it shows how degraded comments have become. Rather than being a haven for intellectual discussion and true ideas, modern comments are largely little more than flamebait. So bravo, TotalBiscuit, bravo.With that said, I would like to place a small rebuttal. I have not seen EFO yet, though I probably will in the future. As a part of a full review, I appreciate your placing the clip in the context of the creators and their past work, and your opinion that they could have done better, and that others have. With that said, I think I will enjoy it anyway. While EFO might not be ground-breaking work, or even anywhere near as good as the rest of their work, it does not mean that we cannot enjoy it for what it is, largely independent of the real-world context. I'm not paying for the clip, after all, and if it's decently entertaining, I will have considered it a decent use of a half an hour's watching.For future reference, to keep the short attention-span and/or intellectually challenged crowd pleased, I recommend a little blurb at the end of your post, along the lines of the following: "Overall, the clip is mildly entertaining, but the disappointment that the studio could have provided a clip of much greater quality than it has has hampered my enjoyment." Or something to that extent.In closing, I reiterate that my hat is off to you for your comment. And for those who will inevitably post "TLDR," a translation: "you win one internets."
