    I was never really a fan of SP7 but they were fine during the RT podcast. Here though was a trainwreck. I really do hope that they bring back the first time they had sex question since it shouldn't be one and done type of question.

    I love Always Open since it started and like when they bring special guests on...


    ...but these two were the WORST! They were SO annoying and thinking they were the "coolest" when all they did was ruin the show with their random garbage. Then they started vaping... -_- 


    I hope I NEVER have to sit through these people ever again!

      This is just SP7's style of content. Do you really feel that you have to be so rude about them?

    Somehow Stephen Suptic and Cib combine to make Noel Fielding. Odd.

    Wow. This is a powerful podcast. They talked about so many things that I feel are relevant in my life. Heck I'm not even all the way through yet!


    Watching the podcast is certainly key to the experience to the viewer though on this one 100%. what does Cib mouth at 24:24 by the way?


    Something is being said without being clearly spoken, thats what makes this podcast special. Cult-Classic episode is my bet. Connects only with a few, but those few connect strongly.


    Uuuh, is it awkard if I ask if Merial swings both ways???

    I still can't tell whether I like the Sugar Pine 7 or not, but they're growing on me. Not to be down on them or anything, just their sense of humor is kind of hit or miss with me. 


    Edit: I take it back, I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard at the first time questions.

    Edit 2: Fuck that vaping is annoying as shit. Why is it they have to vape every time I see them on camera? Literally everything I've seen them in.

    It's when SP7 are outside of their own content that I really notice how easily it could be for someone to just not get it and enjoy it. I love SP7, yet seeing them in shows that are already so familiar and seeing how much they change that dynamic, I can get why people could be upset. They are very different compared to what we have come to know and be comfortable with in Rooster Teeth. Loved the episode, I just wanted to give something for people to think about. Before immediately posting hate, or in a attempt of trying to defend, take a second to think where the other (SP7 or other viewer) is coming from and try to understand it.

      I don't think I've quite "gotten" their own content. But honestly watching them hear it kinda clicked for me. It's so subtle and more complex than you'd first think. I like it.

      Thanks for putting this out there!  I haven't had the chance to check out SP7 yet, and I know a lot of people love them, but based on this I thought they were just kind of "meh."  But if it's just not the right environment for them to shine, I'll definitely still give them a chance in their own content!

    When it comes to the initial questionnaire; you guys should just do 3-5 questions and only time the guests actual response. Seems like whenever you do it, the question takes longer than the response.

    This was a rough episode for me. I'm a big fan of SP7, but their style is hard to control lol, and didn't mesh well with the format of the show. It was a fine episode, and the most I've laughed at an ep of Always Open... but it didn't feel like Always Open, if that makes sense. The questions were overshadowed a lot by Steven and Cib's antics.


    In the future, with them, I would suggest finding topics that they would latch on to... or maybe get questions aimed directly at them, prefetched from Twitter or something. Like with Kinda Funny, they were given questions centered around Tim and Nick's work relationship, which in many ways aligns with romantic relationships.

    I wasn't really familiar with Sugar Pine 7 heading into this episode but after this episode, I didn't really mesh with their humor. I understand that they're popular and I'm not knocking anyone who's a fan of theirs but I felt like their style of entertainment derailed the typical flow and energy that Always Open has built. Not my favorite episode and I'll probably skip out next time they are on. I'm glad to see Always Open mixing it up and trying new things (both segments and personalities) but this is one where it didn't mesh well with me.

      "Did it really need to be said?" - Why not? It's a valid opinion, and a valid concern that others may be feeling.

      Jacecam32, I do agree to some extent. I love SP7, but their style didn't fit well with the show's format. It was funny, but it didn't feel like an episode of Always Open.

    I totally thought that was Kirk Johnson from the thumbnail, but Barb dressing up as Steven makes a lot more sense.  Great costumes, ladies!


    But after a quick look through some of the comments, I'll be skipping this.  I enjoy Steven and Cib when they are normal people, but I can't stand the characters they play, and the general sentiment here is that its more of the latter.  Oh well.

    There's tons of hostility in this comment section, holy moly guys.


    Different people laugh at different things. Nobody is better than anybody else for having a different sense of humor.  Rooster Teeth has acquired an eclectic group and that was done to purposely showcase different styles, ideas, and expand their reach to different people. 


    For every "Big Bang Theory" there is also a "Nathan For You", know what I'm saying?

    I would say somewhat entertaining but since they never got to the kinks topic I would wan't Babs to corral them a bit and keep them on topic that is their humor and while I don't particularly enjoy it much this isn't SP7 its a diff show entirely with structure unlike the RT podcast or Off Topic where their type of rambling fits well here not so much so at least I hope they revisit the kinks topic next time

    Sugar Pine 7 are the definition of expanded boundaries for RT comedy, for better and for worse.  At first I couldn't stand Cib, dumbish was never a catch for me but I know it attracts most people(for some reason), but he's unique enough that it's entertaining and he seems like he means well on the inside.  Steven? I just can't stand the lack of focus or normal levels of interaction,probably not his fault or intention(I'm guessing he has some thing going on mentally).  Yea, he warned that he was a piece of shit(At least he acknowledges it), but I just cringe thinking about how insulted people around him must feel sometimes.  I get a "Man I knew he could struggle to focus and stuff, but I thought he'd at least pull through for the show..." vibe on every single show he's on from the RT staff around him.  I don't hate him, I pity him if anything.  They've made a big following from regular people, which will forever make it a uphill battle to reach RT fans since we're tuned to a more respectful and organized setup. (Cow chop has faced the same uphill battle, think of the comments of their On the Spot episode)...


    Thoughts?...

    I know he can't control it but Steven's voice and cadence makes me want to not watch the episode, i feel sleepy listening to it. I actually love their content and its like he makes an effort to be different in the narrating of his videos but in this he doesn't for some reason.
