It was ok i just don’t like how they snub some people on the site and get the same people for the anniversary’s every year only watch for Brad Jones as I think he is ace.August 24, 2012 at 9:19 am #49506
Yeah, I didn’t think it was all that great either. When it comes to the firing of Spoony from the site I think that it was just something they felt had to be done because it was about making a statement and protecting the site and not necessarily because they wanted Spoony out so I didn’t see any problem with him being in it :)August 24, 2012 at 9:57 am #49508
Thank you so much for posting this! A few days ago the Blip videos on many sites stopped working, so i was really pissed that i couldn’t watch this as i had been excited for it for ages. I don’t know why it would work on Blip but not embedded, but i hope they fix it soon.August 24, 2012 at 10:40 am #49513
I quite enjoy the anniversary specials they do on TGWTG. I’ll be watching for the next installments. Hoping it turns out as good as it’s been hyped :DAugust 24, 2012 at 11:20 am #49517
I haven’t really cared for the anniversaries. The first one was simple enough to work, but Kickassia just seemed to take the crew out of their comfort zone: parody and review. The plot wasn’t as interesting and entertaining for me as their usual stuff. Suburban Knights was a step in the right direction, but pulling off a fantasy parody is really hard and I don’t they really had what it takes to do it. The tone of the movie was an epic fantasy, but the actual execution couldn’t really keep up with it. That said, I still enjoyed all of them.
This one seems a lot more promising. I feel that in terms of parody scifi is a lot easier to pull off for these guys. This first part also drew a lot humor from simple character interaction, instead of clumsily set jokes and settings. I’m really looking forward to this.August 27, 2012 at 9:26 am #49961
Here’s part 2:
To get to the episodes on Blip you simply need to outside-click the video (or rather, where the video should be), and click on ”View Source”. That should open a whole heap of text in Notepad. Scroll down to the line “data-episode-page=”, and copy the URL. Paste that into your browser and you should be good to go.August 30, 2012 at 2:42 pm #50469
Part 3 is here!

Yeah this is definitely loads better than Suburban Knights, though Kickassia still has to be my favorite. Come on, they used the real President of Molassia!September 14, 2012 at 11:06 am #53102
I was hoping to see Fraser or the gang in that cameo segment in part 8. Oh well.September 14, 2012 at 11:15 am #53103
I’m not surprised they weren’t in it, as they don’t do any cameos. I’m real disappointed that Space Guy didn’t make an appearance though, seeing as this is science-fiction and all.September 14, 2012 at 11:59 pm #53235
It’s ok, there are just a few people who I can’t stand. The jokes are hit and miss.September 15, 2012 at 12:56 am #53248
Definitely the best Anniversary in my opinion. It’s not still as professional as it could be, it’s too long, has some spacing issues, takes itself a bit too seriously and looks a bit cheap from time to time, but over all it’s a pretty good independent film in my opinion. The effects really help the credibility, the character interaction seems to serve a purpose this time instead of being just an opportunity for jokes you can see coming a mile away and I like how the plot itself is parodies the film industry and things like SOPA. It just makes the thing feel so much lighter and it’s easier to suspend your disbelief. I’d put it out there with Star Wreck (one of my favorite comedies of all time).

I just watched part 8 this morning. Very satisfying ending to my favourite anniversary special so far. I liked how it took itself seriously, made it more engaging, felt like there was something actually at stake. Even some good performances in there too. Was a fan of the scores they used for the soundtrack (aside from the song in the credits, don’t rate Sad Panda much on what little I’ve heard/seen).
Overall, left with a little sadness with the end but ultimately I enjoyed it and as I mentioned at the start, the ending worked. Can tell a lot of love and effort went into making it so hats off guys!
