[edit] Route

The route Strong Bad is taking is a Golden Gate Transit 40/42 Del Norte BART. However, he is waiting at the stop for the 23 Fairfax & Manor. -- The Great Aussie Evil 03:53, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

  • A number of routes serve that transit center, so really you could sit wherever you wanted and watch for the correct bus. --Tabacco 02:21, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
I live near there, and you have to board what bus you want at the place where they stop. It's better to wait at the stop for your bus so you don't have to do a mad dash when the buses arrive at :59 and :29 past the hour. --The Great Aussie Evil 04:59, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] G4

G4 wasn't at all involved in the production of the short -- they have just agreed to air it. TTGJake 18:49, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Remarks on Opening Shots

As a native of San Rafael, I have these gems to offer.

  • The shot of the man eating and "the outdoor restaurant" are at City Plaza
  • The "outdoor restaurant" is actually the outdoor seating of either Taste of Rome or Cold Stone Creamery.
  • The neon sign saying "RAFAEL" is the marquee of the Rafael Theater, which shows independent films.
  • The bus Strong Bad gets on is bus #1559, which means it is manufactured by Orion.

[edit] Split?

I think each episode should have it's own page on the wiki. The second one is nearly 9 minutes long and with three transcripts, Fun Facts on each section, it's just going to get confusing when another episode will come. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:37, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Each should have its own article, with this acting as a sort of hub (like Strong Bad Email, Teen Girl Squad, etc.). Splitting them up makes a lot of sense. --DorianGray 06:40, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. But how long do we make the article titles? Are we talking Behind The Bad Chapter One ... or ... Behind The Bad Chapter One: The New Hire ? I'd prefer the latter, myself. OptimisticFool 06:59, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I was wondering that myself. I must say, I like the latter, too. Of course, there's also the third option of naming it just The New Hire and whatever else. Thought I'd put that out there too. --DorianGray 07:11, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Are we going to split these any time soon? Because everyone was all "Good idea" and "Yeah, let's do that" and it never happened. And if the reason that it hasn't gotten done yet is because we're not sure what to call it exactly, then I support OptimisticFool's second suggestion. SuperfieldCreditUnion
Okay, I was bold and did it, though I went for "1" rather than "One" and "2" rather than "Two". It makes listing them more pleasing to the eye and fits better among other pages already on the wiki, like Teen Girl Squad Issue 1 (etc.) ... OptimisticFool 03:31, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
I have no idea why I never thought of splitting earlier! Thanks for bringing it up! But don't you think we should make "Behind the Bad" its own separate category in the SBCG4AP template now? --70.143.29.193 13:06, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
I already tried that, and was reverted by DorianGray. BBG 15:11, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Couldn't we just make it wider then, if it's already too big? I mean, who browses at 800x600? --70.143.29.193 19:18, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
I do, but only because I'm used to it. I've always had it at that setting, because my parents didn't care to set it higher and I never knew that I could. When I did, I didn't like how it looked. So, out of habit, I use 800x600. SuperfieldCreditUnion

[edit] 2 Not On G4

Shouldn't we note that BTB episode 2 debuted on tell tale games's website and not on G4?

[edit] "Gross-man"

Strong Bad saying "gross-man" is in fact a reference to that being Telltale design director Dave Grossman walking by (not Graham McDermott). Dave Grossman is also the person whose desk causes Strong Bad to remark "time to stop living in the past." TTGJake 00:05, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

I thought it was a ref to when some guy named Gossman emailed SB and he said "Grossman" back. But is Dave Grossman really that guy's name? If so, why did the movie say it was Graham McDermott? If not, what are you talking about? SuperfieldCreditUnion
The person interviewed at the beginning (Graham McDermott) is different from the person who walks past Strong Bad at the end (Dave Grossman). The wiki writeup labels them as the same person. TTGJake 06:49, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Ah. I see. SuperfieldCreditUnion
