    I was wondering if any Rooster Teeth people were awake when this happened. Apparently Gavin and Barb were

    It's so hard to watch more than one episode at a time, they are so good but they drain you.

    This episode hit hard - how easy habits can be to slip back into and you don't even realize it till you can't tell up from down, and when you finally come back out of it, someone's always hurt.
    Right in the feels, guys.

    This series continues to impress me with just how impressive the writing, acting, and ambiance is for all aspects of it.


    Quite the trip as we ride along for the fracturing of memory and sanity in the shadows of sleeplessness, while others succumb to the final sleep.


    Brilliant.

    They are using the same strategy to find the center point as in Pokemon Go... you know, if Pokemong Go worked.

    The scenes with Jake and Meg brought me to tears, twice. Such great acting you forget it's not real. Didn't even realize his sister's name is Meg(an), the same as mine. When I watched those scenes, I was actually thinking about my own sister.


    All of you guys who work(ed) on this are amazing! To think, I came across you by accident because I thought I saw TotalBiscuit on a panel show in the recommended for me section of youtube. Ended up being Burnie and it was the RoosterTeeth Podcast. Best "mistake" I made all year. 5 minutes in that podcast and I've been hooked ever since. Now I'm branching out to what other content they produce. You guys do not disappoint.

    Did anyone else get really frustrated by the fact the two way at the start didn't have the receiver plugged in? Just me? Ok.

    It's been two weeks. When are standard members going to be able to watch Day Five Ep Two?


    I really like this show and would really love to see eps two and three

      It was my understanding that only ep 1 will be available for standard members and that the rest of the series is for sponsors/First members only.

    This show can't decide what it wants to do with product placement, can it? The car they're driving is a Porsche Macan, which you can see clearly when Ellis closes the trunk starting at 40:46, and earlier in the episode they were praising its speed, but when they back it up at 38:19, all branding has been edited out.


    And now we have 'Number 27' which heavily features a Samsung phone as a major plot point, but the translation function fails because of Caiti's accent.

      Not to nitpick on a 4 month old comment... but it's a Porsche Panamera. The Panamera is a weird looking 4-door 911 basically.  The Macan is an SUV.

    Was it just me, or did Barbara remind me of Cinder from RWBY? The way she talked and expressed herself felt very much like Cinder.

      She may of expressed herself similarly but those were definitely not the words of cinder.

    Hoping to see more of Flip. Absolutely love her character so far.

    Jake, too, is growing to be a truly amazing character. The development we saw here and the hallucinations were just perfect. I love it, and I'm loving his character.

    I am so into this series so far! I love Ellis and Ally and the mystery of the epidemic has me intrigued.


    Hoping you guys might consider captioning these episodes! It would be so helpful, not just to hearing-impaired viewers but for those of us who have trouble catching some of the softer dialogue.

    Roosterteeth has outdone itself here. This could easily be a movie or graphic novel or whatever context they wanted to release it in. Brilliantly written. Brilliantly shot. Exceeded every expectation I had and this is only episode 2. I'm honestly blown away.
