i liked the talk show one, tht was one kinda good.

The host was pretty poor. Perhaps you'll need some lines and punchlines from a good person.

a natural pun king... like me :roll:

To be honest, The Talk Show one is one of my favorites, and I voted for it, but it's hard to continue a suspension of disbelief with it. Honestly, I'd like to see each of the others periodically used at least every now and again. They're all pretty awesome.

I personally like the dream world one, because of the little theatrics made to resume the plot, without making them too damn long for a summary... also, I lost my patience for the talk shows, too much jokes and talk.

I didnt like the conan one,because i dont find those shows funny or entertaining and the laugh was very annoying.

The block joe was ok i guess.

But my fave was the machine guy thing,it felt more interactive and like he was talking to you directly instead of the community,plus he looks freaky lol

I wonder if perhaps trying something new again wouldn't be a bad idea?
Maybe have a zombie with a top-hat and monocle doing the recap.

Not gonna lie, I'm not the biggest fan of the conan thing...maybe because I've never actually sat down and watched conan! Anyway, it'd be really cool if there was a plant one for this chapter, since they played such a huge part in the colony not being exploded, and it's fun to mix things up a bit!

I agree, if it isn't too much work, you could make a new one for each chapter. (which would make the whole thing unique)
It probably would depend on what comes next or what happened. If it's going to be about vampires, you could make it that a vampire mommy tells a story to her child (can they have children?)
Or since the plants can talk, let them do the recap.
