MADE OF AWESOME!!!!!

ETA: OMG JAKE 2.0 SNEAKY REFERENCE!!!!

My head may actually explode from glee. I am so glad 90% of my office is currently in a Project Managers meeting, and no-one is here to witness my silent flappy-hands of glee. Cos, you know, looks kinda dorky.

EMETA: also, I want to hug your entire writer's room.

Not so much a gamer (until Nintendo Wii came along, my gaming abilities began and ended with Duck Hunt), but the fact that you used the phrase "made of awesome" is, in fact, made of awesome. That takes the awesomeness to a whole new level... it's almost Zen.

Counting down the hours until the new Middleman - I will even skip watching the Olympics to watch it!

As someone whose very livelihood is predicated upon Silicon Valley, investment, high tech, and gaming, the reference to Nolan Bushnell is particularly appreciated. Now, Javi, if you REALLY want to go deep with high tech gaming cultural references, you need to find a way to reference Arnold Greenberg and Coleco too. ;)

By the way, I note that among other cultural references, the scene also appears to show the first time that Scud missiles have proven to be effective tactical weaponry.

Now, if I were the actor who is playing Tyler, I would craft ingenious ways to screw up both kissing scenes shown in the clip so that they would have to keep getting re-shot multiple times. That's just me, of course. :)
