    Riff after riff after riff. Linkara you are spittin' these videos out like fireballs!

    The most important part of dating, resetting to the last save point every time you make a mistake!
    This PSA would've lasted half as long if the narrator had just used a walkthrough.
  • pomaflah
    I still learned a lot from the resets.

    "Gee, things are happening."

    Most pointless, asinine line EVER!
  • Sockpuppet

    I don't know, pretty astute observation, if you ask me. Things WERE happening, no denying that.
  • Dacilriel
    Really, why would teenage boys and girls want to be together at a party when they could separate into groups and stand as far from the opposite sex as possible?
  • pomaflah
    Because in my experience, they never mingle.

    That kid George has the weirdest, most stilted, unkidlike dialog.

    "I am washing my hair that night, and every night in fact!"


    lol, I wish I would have tried that excuse back in High School when some loser wanted to ask me to the dance.

    Just to see if that actually worked in real-life lol XD

    I've found that men are generally more honest when it comes to excuses about being busy. And it's not just because I'm a ma myself XD

    Time travel, Winter Frolic under the sea dance, making sure to get back in time, the kick ass rock and roll.

    Marty: George you have to go out with her my life depends on it!
  • pomaflah
    These are still generally accepted dating rules, Linkara. I intend to follow these rules, since the 1950s psas are closest to what my own experience is going to be like: date, maybe go steady if I'm only eighteen or nineteen, get engaged, plan the wedding, get married, have children.
    I do still think you have some legitimate points from your own perspective, it's just that I probably will be dating like this (without, God forbid, the physical contact) so these are some rules I probably do need to know when I start dating.
  • armagod679
    Ah, the American dream lives on. Good luck!
  • pomaflah
    Thanks. I'll probably need it.
  • Captain Speedbump
    The younger person introduces the older person? What if they're the same age? Is it a good idea to ask her when she was born, to the day month and year?

    Anyway, entertaining as always Linkara. Keep the MST3K spirit alive and well!
  • MrThorbjoern
    Just had to think about that thing in WTFIWWY....At arrest: Justin Bieber told me to go in there to watch the boys swimming and...in this case become a teacher... '-.- now i fell like a horrible person
  • armagod679
    Honestly, they made some okay points about going to a middle school dance, but the things that stick out to me are that a) the boys and girls don't seem to really acknowledge that the other gender exists before a dance comes up and b) poor Mildred is a foot taller than George.

    And did you do this riff mostly for the comic book joke?
  • FishEyenoMiko
    avatar
    Aww, I actually thought it was neat that they had a couple where the girl was a lot taller and nobody made an issue of it.

    "And did you do this riff mostly for the comic book joke?"

    LOL! Yeah, I thought that too... (-:

  • sunnyl
    You know Linkara, there is one thing you could do to increase revenue which would be more effective than half a dozen riffs, and perhaps even AT4W.

    History of Power Rangers!
  • sunnyl
    Did enjoy this riff though.
  • Thunderbang  - Yes!
    avatar
    Agreed! I'm still looking forward to his opinion on Mystique Force, which I am not that big of a fan of... but it's kind of cool :)
  • FFKonoko  - Sorry, couldn't resist.
    avatar
    Mystique Force?
    Presumably an x-men team lead by that iconic blue lady Raven Darkhölme, consisting of Rogue, Nightcrawler and Creed. And Wolverine.
    ;)
  • snarfies  - Nice!
    I'm not a fan of comics or your reviews thereof (sorry), but you're a darn fine riffer!
  • TheReapersDragon
    "Who reads comic books?"
    Best line in the whole video.
  • Bloodrealm
    The line was "Who talks about comic books?"
  • Heroofstuff  - "Who reads comic books?"
    avatar
    Uh Linkara........The Last Angry Geek does

    (really no one else thought of that joke)
  • ladydiskette
    avatar
    Geeze, that one boy Georg looks like he should be in fifth grade. He is way too young-looking to be in High school, no wonder he is not ready to ask one of the other girls out on a date. He is still watching cartoons!


    Of course, maybe that is asking too much of the casting decisions for these shorts.
  • fanime1
    avatar
    Hey, that's not nice. I'm 20 and I still watch cartoons. XD
  • Thunderbang  - Reset
    avatar
    Too bad the reset doesn't work in real life...
  • Thunderbang  - Height difference
    avatar
    And what's up with the short boy and the extremely tall girl? It looks she could've been his teacher or something...
  • Rue_Ryuzaki2

    Ahh the awkwardness of male-female interactions. they're so entertaining to watch. Even when I fail at it. lol
  • Skyscraper
    avatar
    This was both awkward, a little adorable and very funny. Linkara was on fire in this one with the timing and quality of the gags- especially liked the references to how that one girl WAS asking someone to the dance, and how that one guy was a Time Mage. Gosh if that power wouldn't have come in handy, on certain occasions.
  • magox88
    I love the series its so F** funny keep the great work :D
  • TooMuchFreeTime
    Some of the advice seemed fairly good, but they were far too strict about it.

    Like calling not waiting on your date an 'unforgivable error'...they're like ten years old!
  • Undertaker91
    avatar
    And seriously, who waits for their date outside the bathroom? cant they get 2 minutes of privacy?
  • Nagneto
    avatar
    YES LINKARA, I ALREADY BOUGHT THE ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA. 20 FUCKING YEARS AGO!!!
  • Bloodrealm
    0.o Where the hell did that come from?
  • ThunderDave
    That was funny Linkara. By the way when the boy thought about comics. It made me think of when I talked to a girl and told her I was into comics. Needless to say my date bombed worse then Superman IV the quest for peace, and Batman and Robin.
  • Hans the ferret
    I have been loving this new series Luis has been doing.
  • Toucanbird
    avatar
    Man where were some good one-liners in this one. Comic book joke was pretty damn funny.
  • Nanani72

    Why do they bother with the asking for dates crap if they're still at the OMG COOTIES stage and standing on opposite sides of the room all night?
