EPISODE 51 coming this thursday night!

EPISODE 51 is coming this Thursday night, 5/19/11, at 11pm ET. This is, of course, the first "post-AntiThinker" episode and will debut - among other fun new things - our new Opening Credits... with temporary music, as that's still being worked on.

To tide you over, here's a trio of still images - all from the episode itself. Enjoy!


I'm thinking some version of this "desk set" might become a semi-
permanent fixture of the show, as it was very convenient to use.

Two more pix after the jump...


Fairchild Channel F: The first cartridge-based game console EVER.
You May recall it being mentioned a bit last month when it's creator
Gerald Lawson, the inventor of the Game Cartridge, passed away.

I was actually wondering earlier today when the next Overthinker episode would go up. Thanks for reading my mind and answering my unspoken question.

Robert said...

"I thought about starting this off with some sort of introduction, but honestly you don't care"

Remember when you said that in the beginning of your first video in 2008?

Well, its been about 3 years, and I still don't care.... sooo yeaaaaahhhhh

What's this? You're goign back to just the lecture! Oh good! Huzza! Talkin' about the stuff that gamers want to hear-
*Third Picture*
Well...Fu-

Do you need that booze to deal with your fans?

Aiddon said...

Well I'll be out of town with no net access.

And yes, I would probably need the the booze too to deal with the amount of crybabies Bob tends to attract.

Paragon said...

Well I for one am happy a new ep is coming and I -au contraire to Conanthe3rd above- don't mind a bit of story mixed into the meat and potatoes discussion on gaming.

So huzzah etc. Glad to see movement here :)

You know what I like about reading the comments here? You have a room split in two. People complaining about Bob, and people trying to suck him off complaining about the complainers. Give it up, he's not going to pay you any special attention just because you defend him. And clearly, he's not going to listen to anyone telling him he fucked up. Be it true or not. Why don't you all startposting something relative to the blog... or just stop licking his boots already.

A Tribe Called Helloween said...

I really miss the days when you weren't a camwhore with this show. You had so much more credibility then.

Robert said...

I totally agree with a tribe called helloween.

I'm also puzzled about how a picture of you sitting down with a laptop and a bottle of booze, staring out into space is supposed to get me excited about the next episode

fox said...

I dunno about the deskset Bob. Seems a bit too over packed with things. Also, the Barccardi bottle gives me thin uneasy feeling, like it's too close to the edge of the table and about to fall off. o.O

Mavrickindigo said...

Oh so you lied about the Antithinker thing being a parody and you're just going to keep going on trying to emulate TGWTG like they are some good thing to emulate with your theme songs and your convoluted "plotlines"

You know why you were good? Because you weren't like them. You were different.

If you excuse me, I think there's a new "Extra Credits" coming out soon.

aggrax said...

Mavrickindigo, he wasn't doing a parody of TGWTG type shows with plotlines. The AntiThinker was a parody of hardcore gaming. Secondly, Bob had said on at least one occasion that this show was always meant to be like that, but timing issues prevented it from happening until it did.

Mavrickindigo said...

aggrax, I'd love to see those comments and how long ago they were made. If I had known that this is the track Bob wanted to take, perhaps I wouldn't have wasted my time watching that awful "Quest of the Antithinker" BS. What in the world possessed him to think changing the format was a good idea?

J.C. Hedges said...

Cool beans. Looking forward to watching your new episode tonight. :)

aggrax said...

The second Armchair Thinkers podcast that he appeared on is where Bob said that, before the Antithinker stuff even started, he had planned to move the show in a more TGWTGish direction
