Strip Search

Post by BtEO » Tue Apr 02, 2013 10:18 pm

Has anyone else been watching Strip Search?

It's Penny Arcade's reality show for web cartoonists — and it's really good. Even if you don't like reality shows normally (like me) I'd recommend this. I've seen a couple of comments that help nail down why it's different: first is that there's no editing to make you favour one cartoonist over the other, it's hard to dislike any of them; second is that they're not editing in cliffhangers or major drama every 7-8 minutes to make room for adverts.

And the elimination rounds are brutal.

Watch the trailer. At the very least you'll want to understand what the context is regarding "butt virginity":

I saw one yesterday. It was linked from a recent PA, the double ended dildo one. I think I needed more context.

For that strip: It was the result of an annual PAX East panel. (A much more full explanation is here.) Here's video of the panel.

I've enjoyed what I've seen of Strip Search. But then again, I like Penny Arcade, I like Unskippable, and I like Loading Ready Run (all people involved with the series), so of course I like this.

No, I know what it was (and filled in the blanks quickly). I meant having watched prior episodes so I knew who these individuals were and got the references to previous events.
