  • Four players works so much better with the static camera setup. If it's more than four I just can't keep track of who's talking without the dynamic cuts they use on Dimension20.

  • I love this oneshot so much xD it's interesting how everybody reacts and just kind of different than all the other critical role oneshots I watched until this point. I would also love to see some kind of continuation. Maan I wish I would have been a little more risky and stuff when I was this age – not that I would have wanted to handle a murder thing, but now I feel a little bit boring. Youth could have been more exciting. This oneshot gave me something, i never did or tryed or dared to try. Haha :'3

  • ok but it's been months and I'm still thinking about this. We Never met Sasha's shitty parents. we never saw Cam, Sasha, and Af work their love triangle out. we never saw the kids in anger management. We never met Jamie's mom. There were so many more things that they could do. I really hope they expand on this oneshot, maybe for next valentines day…

  • Really thought I was gonna hate this, even though I love Critical Role immensely
    That was not the case at all
    Was iffy about Ally's character for a bit, but I grew to adore them once the rougher edges were softened
    Erika's character stole the fucking show, though. I don't think I've ever seen someone pull powerful seduction so smoothly so effortlessly, but have moments showing such tenderness just as perfectly
    We've gotta see more. This is good stuff.
