WEGAF Reviews: Slam Bradley, Parts One and Two

Hey there, everybody! Happy New Year! May this one be a slight improvement over the last!

As a late Christmas present from me, here are the two WEGAF Reviews episodes – or rather, the one two-part episode – that aired during December:

Now, of course these should have actually been posted here during December – they were certainly intended to be – but, well… suffice to say, I bit off a bit more than I could chew this year. My plan had been to post four videos, one per week, in order to take advantage of the legendary holiday video-watching bump – and I did, technically, but only because of an ‘extra’ video that I posted at the beginning of the month, and which would have been my fifth, had everything gone as planned. Alas, due to my old friend Technical Issues, I started December behind schedule, and only barely managed to catch up in time – as it was, a planned Christmas episode which I was going to post as my finale had to be scratched (although not axed entirely; you’ll see it next year), and… well, more tales of YouTube woe. I’m sure you’re all enthralled.

Anyway. What with one thing and another, I was a bit rushed off my feet last month, and didn’t have time for Mutant Reviewer-posting – but the holidays are over now, and it’s time to get back to business. So here we are, another WEGAF two-parter – only this time, it was actually meant to be a two-parter! Yay hooray!

This is a big one, too. It introduces an important new element to the series, one which I’ve been teasing for a while, and is somewhat… well, I’ll let you find out for yourselves, but suffice it to say that it’s a bit less purely comical than some of the other ones I’ve done. Oh, it’s still funny (at least, I like to think it is), but there are some more serious elements here.

One way or another, I hope you enjoy, and you may expect some more videos soon – there’s a backlog of movie vlogs that I have been too busy/distracted to post here, though that will change – or you could just visit my channel, the link to which I shall post here again:

Also, while I won’t jinx myself, I honestly do have some more traditional written reviews/articles in the works, and given that my mad video-making frenzy has subsided for the moment, chances are that I’ll be able to post some of them soon. Anyway, hope you all had a great holiday season, and I’ll see you later!
