Do we idolize a pair of guys who capitalize on our daily lives?

Good. Mythical. Morning.

It may be part of your daily routine, or this may be your introductory discussion into the world of mythical beasts, but hither-tither whether or not, one thing remains: the Internetainers Rhett and Link have struck absolute gold in their brand of family-friendly comedy and boiled-for-safety shenanigans.

There are tons of things to talk about with GMM. Good, bad, and ugly.

Which is your favorite episode? What's your favorite recurring segment? Who's your favorite member of the Mythical Crew? Do you think they go too far to be family-friendly? Do you think they slip up too much? What's up with the new Wheel of Mythicality? Do you dislike the "You Know What Time It Is" portion as much as I do? 'Cause I do.

Have you ever bought any of their swag? Do you think they hawk it too much? Not enough? Is it good swag? Bad swag? Not swag at all? Which of the two in the duo is your favorite?

When was your favorite "Will It?" When was your favorite Link Glitch? Favorite Rhett rant? Rhett Dirty Moment? Rhett Staring Into The Camera Like 'Can You Believe What I Put Up With?'

I want to hear you!

Hello I have many opinions on GMM. too many to put in a post. If you're ever in chat and want to... let's talk about that.

I just skip past the wheel of mythicality at the end of the show. When they say "you know what time it is" I'm basically like, "yeah, time to click away." Not that I think they shouldn't have it, I just don't wanna watch it. That's when they get all their announcements out.

I don't buy swag in general, but I don't mind them hawking it. I think it's kinda funny sometimes.
I think it's great they try to be family-friendly! We need more of that in the world I think. and their "slip ups" remind me that they don't have to be, and that they're still real people, and it's not really scripted at all.
I don't really watch them daily. I used to watch them more than I do now. Now I kinda have to be in the mood and I'll go browsing for videos that sound interesting. I love GMCrew though! I think their episodes are kind of more entertaining than most GMMs. Although it seems like they always send someone on a trip that doesn't really help the guys in anyway and is just for entertainment, and tbh I find it more fascinating to see the crew building some crazy structure or making some crazy costume, or cooking up some crazy food. Heck, even just thinking up ideas is pretty interesting. Sure those excursions are entertaining, but I watch it because I love behind the scenes things for everything! (Also can I say that I think Chase has an adorable face?)

When I first started watching, I really liked Link the best. Like, no contest. But now that I've watched for longer, I think I prefer Rhett. They're both great though. Wish I had a friendship like theirs haha!

idk if they still do this, but when they had their "questions" segments, I always just skipped past their spiel of "Mythical beasts, your questions are like eggs..." or what have you. It was funny the first two times I watched that kind of episode, but got very stale very soon.

I have a lot left to say but I don't know what to say next, and what's important, so I'mma just end here. :)

//likes topic enthusiastically

//is casually wearing my "Oh My Flavors" shirt

I'll be replying officially to this Monday when I can get on my laptop again. Until then, Link is my favorite. And Kevin is my favorite crew member. I'm liking this new Sagar guy a lot, too.

Rhett has been my favorite from the beginning, even when he grates on my nerves waxing political and whatevs. He's just obviously the less up-tight of the two, and I jam to that.

My favorite recurring segment is most definitely the Will It?s. Followed VERY closely by anything containing the Dirty 30 girls (Hannah Hart, Mamrie Hart, Grace Helbig.)

I admittedly giggle a bunch when they slip up because I know I would too if I were in their place so so much. And Link does it so innocently. xD But also maybe not? Because I think he's the better writer of the two of them.

Lately their guest stars have been on fleek and I love it. And my favorite member of the GMCrew is Chase. He's just so adorable and can do no wrong.

Edit: Oh, and I did buy Let The Tigers Tiger, but it was too big, so I rarely wear it.

I'm back! d:

Fun fact: when deciding on whether or not I should change my username to Wolfical, I looked it up on Google Images and this was the first thing that came up (and it still does come up first, although now some of my YWS stuff is in the mix which is creepy):
Spoiler! :

So I saw that and knew this would be my new name xD


My favorite recurring segment was The Backup Plan. Unfortunately, good things can only last for so long, especially if they're sponsored. If GMMore storytime counts as a segment, then that's my favorite.

I'm not a big fan of the new wheel. Some of the new things are fun and the charity stuff is awesome, but their fan base is so large that you can't really get recognized for the photo editing things (got two likes on Facebook for mine after spending an hour on it... wooo xD) and it isn't likely they'll choose your videos and things unless they're really unique. The #letsgettextual and comment takeovers are fun. But the improv! Those things were gold. The wheel should be more of a mix between the old and new, and I'd be happy.

I love that they're family friendly. I wouldn't be a Mythical Beast today if they weren't.

Are you guys subscribed to Rhett & Link extras? What do you think all these mysterious blank videos with a few seconds of dialogue are? Something to do with the Book of Mythicality, perhaps? :/

I foretold EVERY SINGLE BIT of the This is Mythical channel before the cryptic videos started scaring people. I'm so excited. SO excited. It might explain where Daniella and the others went after so short a stint on the mCrew.

So...Ear Biscuits s3 is fantastic...from the one episode released. I'm looking forward to Ten Feet Tall so much.

Their writing has shot up, and I think it may be thanks to Ellie??? I don't think Sagaar is a writer, but I know Ellie is. What do you think about the current writing?
