As many of you know, I had a great web series on The Escapist called Top 5 with Lisa Foiles, where I did a weekly countdown of completely ridiculous video game-related stuff, like Top 5 Awesome Robots and Top 5 Impractical Hairstyles and who even thinks about these things until I TELL you to think about them?! (And therein lies the charm of my show.)
You guys have been such amazing supporters of the series and I can’t even put into words how much I appreciate your funny comments, heated debates, and virtual high-fives. Seriously. You guys are fantastic and the last thing I want to do is let you down.
The show has been on hiatus for over two months now and if I had an Underwater Ninja Tiger for every time someone asked – nay, SHOUTED WITH GREAT GUSTO about where the show went, I would have a lot of motherf*cking Ninja Tigers, and we’d all be pretty screwed.
So, I’m writing this in hopes that I can quell your rage-fits while simultaneously using enough discretion to not get myself sued. Here’s all I can say:
I didn’t want to stop making Top 5s, but neither did The Escapist. It’s… complicated. There are some behind-the-scenes issues with the show being produced currently, and I can assure you it’s not my fault. I loved bringing you my show every week. It wasn’t canceled, I’m not being lazy, and no, I didn’t die, despite all the creative rumors about my death (that mostly I started).
Do I have good news? Yes!
Top 5 is not entirely dead. I have no plans on killing that idea. It will be revived and it will be better than ever – I’m not sure in what capacity, but it will happen. (And we’ll have a big re-launch party with lots of drinking!)
Better news! I have several very awesome web endeavors in the works! I call them “Web-deavors!” One involves an already well-loved, popular project being turned into a series which may or may not rhyme with “Shmallout,” another involves a Big Bang Theory-meets-True Blood type of show to be filmed later this year, and to top it all off, I’m developing a new one-woman web show which will involve all the retardation and quirky humor you’ve come to like about me. Or tolerate. One or the other.
So, again, I can’t apologize enough for the lack of Top 5, but it is not my fault. I have no plans to stop bringing you awesome content, it’s just in the development stages right now. :)
In the meantime, feel free to keep making your presence known here at the new Save Point! I personally read every comment and you people have me rofling multiple times a day. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH IT HURTS! MOSTLY IN THE PANCREAS AREA!
THAT’S PROBABLY NOT GOOD.
Oh, and I might get in heaps trouble for posting this, but whatever, I'll take it down if I get yelled at. Here's an unaired preview of Top 5:
