Episode Commentary

"No homo", dude, you didn't say it.

Disclaimer: I've never read the books or watched the movie, and -- as I'm sure most of my fellow Y-chromosome compatriots would agree -- am convinced and afraid that the worldwide "craze" over this Edward character is the first sign of a coming apocalypse. Not that I disapprove of having a thing for/obsession over a fictional character -- you're talking to a guy who once envisioned a polygamous marriage with Jessica Rabbit, Holli Would, Lara Croft, Jill Valentine and Kim Possible -- but it just seems like some people are taking it a bit too far.

    I hated Twilight and I have two, that is TWO X Chromosomes that is XX so you know girl. Twilight was/is terrible it didn't transform vampire myths it ruined the mystic and interest with a generic female protagonist that is a blank slate dull person that anyone could imagine themselves as and probably more would be more interesting.

    I couldn't stand the trailers let know the movie. Proud to never have spent a dollar on twilight.

    Apparently the reason girls like Twilight is because they can relate to it. Yeah... I remember that time when I was a vampire.

    i so hope you didn't read the series. waste of time. even the movies were so bad. the spoof 'vampires suck' was a way better pastime. 😀

    In light of New Moons release, this comic is more topical then ever.
    And therefor, that much more freaking highlarious.

    I know people who have read it, people from both sides.
    I have read them, and hold no special feelings for the books.
    However, I can honestly say that burning a book is actually REALLY fun, especially when marshmallows are involved. <3

    I just figured that any form of literature that generates a cult following HAS to be appealing in some way, right?

    responding to Enzo's comment on 05/13: just voicing my opinion here, but i don't consider Stephanie Meyer's Twilight works to be decent literature IN ANY FORM. decent literature is subtle, and i find Twilight to be anything but that, especially if it causes muderous stampedes. no one ever did that over Shakepeare, am i right?

    Haha one of my friends is a total Edward Cullen fan girl, she's got pictures of him on one of her bedroom walls and she gets really pissed off at me whenever I diss him. I can't believe what people go to just to see an ugly (no offence to all the people who love him) guy who's famous because he is in a bad (once again no offence) movie. I love your comics, keep it up dude. XD

    I'm just glad that you folks are more level-headed than the fans being portrayed in the media. I mean, one one side, there are people who appreciate decent literature, and on the other hand, there's the fanatics that get so wrapped up in it that they blur the line between fiction and reality. It's scary, it really is!

    I mean I can relate, definitely. Girls fell in love with Edward, I fell in love with Kimpossible when I was 14. Did I want her to save me from mad scientists hell-bent on world domination? No!

    Well, maybe a little bit, because a mad-scientist-hell-bent-on-world-domination scenario is three different types of awesome.

    Twilight was a well-written series, and I have to admit I did love Edward (and of course Jacob) but asking him to bite me is a disturbing thought. Plus, it's just another way for normal guys to be shot down because they can't rise to the perfection that only fictional characters can obtain. It sets all of us girls' expectations WAY too high.

    i love twilight, i read the books BEFORE anyone knew of them, i went to the premiere of the movie and all that, but i certainly would not ask them to bite me. people like that make me embarrased to be fan.

    We can't help ourselves 🙁 even those of us with Y-chromosomes. He's just so... okay, there needs to be an adjective which is like masculine, but for vampires (vampire-y just sounds silly). Could you get on that? Thanks.

      HAHAHA! Hmm. Alluring ? I don't know. : ( I do know what you mean a little bit, though! Lara was telling me a little more about this Edward Cullen character according to popular belief, he's the "perfect guy". Not fair !

      This also sounds a bit like a recommendation to read the novel, correct me if I'm wrong ^_^ I'm getting more and more intrigued.

        Haha I have the novel lying around but I haven't read it yet... I'll let you know if/when I do. The movie pretty (unintentionally) hilarious... I can't say I'd recommend it unless you're inclined to gawk at sexy vampires (not a small demographic, as we have learned).

    Your thing sounds completely different through; I mean, Jessica Rabbit is HOT.
    Seriously though, I'm a gal who's read Twilight, and even I don't understand the Edward Cullen obsession. Movie or book-wise he's just not that attractive.

    I have never thought about using his sexy vampire powers to get an ex back though. Keep up the comics, I love the last panel.

      YES !! Someone that agrees with me ! I don't understand how they were able to put a character like Jessica Rabbit into a movie so obviously directed at kids -- but then again, I'm not complaining. Bwahaha.

      As for Edward Cullen -- I don't understand it either, but I haven't read the book at all, so I don't exactly have a reliable basis for judgment. : ( I just keep wondering if people would have had the same worldwide reaction to him if he was, like, a "sexy werewolf".

      Thanks =D

    you are so right there. I've never read the book or watched the film, but I just don't know what's the deal with edward. My social climber friend keeps on saying in her blog that "he was so compassionate and unconditional" when in fact I was told by a friend that when they watched the movie she was like "oh my god I love his eyes!", "oh my god I love his smile!", or "o my god I love his... breathing pattern!".

    oh, did I tell you I love your comics? hehe..
