Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Top Comments

Just as a friendly reminder, we put up a post at the end of the day yesterday about how Videogum is now accepting (a better word would be considering) open submissions, and also asking you guys for your input into how to make the site bigger and better than ever. This could be new ideas for kool kontent, or it could be thoughts on the way the commenting community is structured or whatever! We just wanted to make sure you were aware of it, because obviously you are a very important part of the site, and one of Videogum’s great strengths is the intelligence, humor, and thoughtfulness of its commenters. So help us out! And thank you for being those things!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Lost Themed Nursery Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

The question isn’t “Why don’t you caption it,” it’s “WHEN don’t you caption it.”

This Week’s Associate Editor’s Choice

  Messica | Aug 21st Score:33

Well, to be fair, British actors do have a better understanding of period drama acting because the key to a good period drama, no matter what country or ancient civilization it’s set in, is that everyone sounds British.

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

The Aura of the H-Man | Aug 23rd Score:38

I don’t want to get too far into the weeds with this, but I think the Videogum of the future should have more of the stuff that’s pretty good, and less of the stuff that isn’t quite as good. The rest is just details, really.
