    This episode still hasĀ one of the best scenes in all Rooster Teeth animations history. Just had to go back to rewatch this after watching the plot twist in Eleven Little Roosters.

    That line sounded soooo funny I just had to laugh! "Then we will destroy those two colored people", that is the funniest line I've ever heard!

    they should work Edgar in with the mad king at some point

      I read this cool idea where Edgar was a robot like Orf, that might be pretty cool since the Mad King did try to make Orf into a crazy robot of death.

      i read somewhere that the mad king being confined in a glass box was actually a reference to edgar

    The Mad King sure is 'committed' to chaos and murder, this makes him the perfect leader for Mogar to follow!

      They're in a mid-season hiatus until sometime in mid-September. Then they'll release the second half of the season (which is another 5 episodes).

    Rooster Teeth be like: Whosoever shall possess this crown, if he be crazy, shall possess the power of the Mad King or something like that. Also apparently the Mad King is like the love child of Hannibal Lecter and the Joker (or physical child if we go with the Flashpoint paradox story).

    • JamesRaynor

      How about a correction: "Also, apparently The Mad King is like the love child of Hannibal Lecter and The Joker (or physical child if we go with the flashpoint paradox story)!"

    this episode was great :)

    but what wild man said sounded kinda racist :(

    maybe it is a good idea that King does all the talking for many good reasons.

    ... I wonder what story X-Ray told the Mad King regarding his fear of birds.

    I also wonder when the next episode is coming out. I'm here hitting "refresh".

      Would they cut it off with no warning like this, though?

      @TheeSlothKing they did say, i recommend reading the staffs website posts, it warns you of these things so your not disapointed later :)

      It's there for 2 reasons

      1: Dwayne "The Rock" (Johnson ((obviously))

      2: In the WWE2k14 Let's Play, Mr. Diddlez uses the Rock Bottom as a move.

      It's one of Ray's running jokes. First time I saw it, though, wasn't until he started streaming. Just watch his video on Lifeless Planet.

    Damn, X-Ray and Vav is REALLY coming along. I'm surprised at how great the show is, especially the story... Not that I expected any less from RoosterTeeth, but I just thought this show was created solely for comedy. Either way, I'm really pleased with the direction that the show is headed, and I eagerly await the more to come!

    I was sad about the Mad King only appearing for a bit during season 1, but oh gosh, this is getting exciting now! Can't wait to see what his plans are :)

    (Also A+ voice acting by Ryan. His voice makes the Mad King's speeches even better.)

    Is it weird that I find Ryan's character to be about as relatable as Gavin's? And by that I mean I relate to both... a lot.

    I find Ryan's MadKing voice to be oddly soothing. His voice is usually milky-smooth, but this is glorious.

      Pretty much the way I've described it to those who haven't seen it. It's a Powerpuff like series featuring TONS of RT references.
