My favorite part from this whole thing is in one of the first episodes, Jeff tries to cut the enemy cultists while running by but fails and just ends up running by with the knife being short of making contact
Can we talk about how Jeff fucking carried them in every encounter.
The episode with Thomas Middleditch as Dildo Bogpelt is the best episode. Kumail's episode is a close second
Even more amazing about this show is that it just came about by happenstance. Dan Harmon and Jeff Davis were filming their podcast one day when they had plans to begin playing DnD on the show.
Spencer Crittenden being a fan of Harmon, knew he enjoyed DnD and brought. When Dan Harmon asked if there were any Dungeon Masters in the crowd, Spencer's hand shot up. Jeff Davis had never played DnD prior to this. This began the framework for Harmon Quest, and it still continues on in their podcast Harmontown today. None of the group knew Spencer prior to that day, and they became fast friends even inviting Spencer into their podcast tour weeks later.
::Edit:: I mistated that Spencer had the equipment to start the show immediately which was not the case. He volunteered and had a campaign read the next episode.
"THIS IS A SONG ABOUT 5 DEAD BABIES, 5 DEAD BABIES AT THE BOTTOM OF A LAKE.."
Bit? This is almost the entire episode. And if you like this Dan Harmon and friends play D&D on his Harmontown podcast during the last 20 minutes of each episode. And I also strongly recommend The Adventure Zone. Hilarious D&D podcast with a strong story.
For anyone confused, this is all improv from the characters. The only thing planned out is the quest details by the Game Master, Spencer Crittenden.
Every episode they've got some new guest star and then they all improv their way through the quest like a normal RPG but with looser rules. After the live recording (it's not a laugh track), the artists animate the whole thing.
So this whole exchange is even better because it's just on the fly between Dan Harmon, Erin McGathy, Jeff B. Davis, and Kumail.
Join the community over on /r/HarmonQuest! If you watch or want to watch, Season 2 comes out Friday (the 15th).
For those asking, all ten S1 eps are free right now for anyone in the US here:
This clip is from Episode 8, "The Dragon's Temple." If you're going to start the series, stick it out through episode 3, I didn't really like the first two.
If you're not in the US you may have to use a proxy or find a different 3rd party streaming site, VRV doesn't have anything outside the US yet.
You missed one of the best parts at the end where Kumail says "Your greaattt" and walks away.
So does Dan Harmon just naturally kind of sound like Rick. And is Justin Roiland kind of just impersonating his voice? Because they sound identical.
