Another episode like the Ikari Warriors one, you can tell James just sat down with Kaufman and they spouted whatever they felt like, and it makes for a very hit and miss episode. Some of the jokes were decent and some really, really fell flat. With this episode you could tell that James isn't the best improv actor, and also that Kaufman didn't really care. He was just messing around and letting James bounce off of all the jokes he made, some of which were good and some of which were pretty bad.
That's how I felt it myself. Some parts were funny, while some others were just annoying. The ending was pointless, not funny and kind of gross even by AVGN's standards.
You can tell James is getting bored of AVGN because he keeps messing with it now, and I don't blame him. I'm hoping once this film comes out he'll be able to let the series die down and stick to only a few episodes a year so he can focus on what he obviously wants to be doing: making films.
I don't think it's obvious that James is bored of the AVGN, he did release some fantastic reviews, if not some of his bests recently. The Ghouls And Goblins episode, for instance, was absolutely great! Atari Sports and Schwarzenegger Games were almost pretty good reviews.
He seems to like to do reviews, since he's also started the Board James series and makes a few videos with Mike in which they criticize or review various games, movies, toys, etc. What exactly makes you think he's tired of doing the Nerd?
