“(And a Creator of those Creators)” is such a subtly good shoutout to Jeffandrew and the lore of TAZ that’s so crazy
oh my god, what is the well bit at the end from? i cannot remember
I love how you did Refuge resetting it really puts into view how terrible that would be living over 2000 times with that.
This is amazing
Look great! Is this a real show?
So it's a story about three bumbling buffoon trying to do main character stuff even though they are probably the least qualified for the job I love it
1:44 “God Lied...”😭 2:04 Istis
Best podcast ever.
This is a great pilot eposde.
Nothing will ever match the first season of TAZ
Fuck. I love this WAY too much.
God... lied... 🤣😂
Every time i see something like this I just think, "God, wonderland was so fucking good"
This is superb
this is so cool. I'm literally currently working my way through the balance arc right now and this is hyping me up to do.... the thing i am... already currently doing so nice 10/10 great trailer [p.s. hi griffin, and hi travis, your magnus backstory made me cry]
I have only stumbled upon the podcast a few weeks ago but man, what a ride. Everything is so awesome.
if this is your first time listening to taz, two things, 1. don't read anymore comments, and if you're confused use the wiki (but be careful), it's so worth it to go in blind 2. everytime you finish a section, come back to this video and see how things start making more sense :) (also, if you want, as you're listening drop ur theories as ur listening in the replies of this I rlly wana hear what first time listeners think!!)
everytime i rewatch this im just reminded how amazing it was listening to taz the first time (even with all the spoliers i had), and makes me wanna relisten to all of it all over again
Oh my god I'm gonna watch the shit out of this so hard
Wait, what do people mean 'This arc'? There is more??? I'm still in crystal kingdom episodes. There is more than one season?
Yep! There are two other seasons already finished, and the next one starts in a few days :)
going through this frame by frame and recognizing every single scene is a spiritual experience
But does it perfectly illustrate Magnus's rustic hospitality?
1:38 oh, i remember that crazy scene, where they are taking part in a "death race" with lots of crazy vehicles.
I'm back here after listening to the Graduation finale. What a letdown. Balance is really important to me, but I think it might be time to just let go, and accept that the McElroys are just never going to capture this kind of lightning in a bottle again.
This is making me watch it again
This is fucking incredible, I love how you shot the scenes and edited the voices to make it play like a real trailer. Honestly I'm a little pissed off because it's not an animated series and I so badly want it to be.
ow that‘s me!!!!! cool
i have never been able to stop watching this trailer
Is the show still coming out?
@Elisa Gama ok good to know
@YOGI (I'm a month late oops) but they announced a tv show last year. I imagine it's still in production, these things take a long time, but it is a separate thing from the comics :)
@Fanfur yea i know they are currently on there 3rd season called graduation. you seemed to mistake my comment and the conversation as a whole
@YOGI The comics are based off of the podcast. Their Balance arc has already been finished for some time now. The entirety of it can be found on Acast
it wasn't a show it was a comic series that has a few issues out so far.
Always chills no matter how many times I watch
Love the look of this show.
Did I just get goosebumps? I'm a dork.
THIS IS SO GOOD AHHHHHH that allusion to 11th hour always rips my heart out ahhhHhhhhhhhhHHHH
Upsy truly upset me
A little sad there is no Barry Bluejeans in this trailer. But this is amazing!
technically there is
And the creator of those creators. Lol.
Just wanted to say this is what convinced me to listen to Balance (also due to a bit of my sister's urging) and HOT DIGGITY SH&T This is one BALLER story. It's SO good.
The Wonderlan music is the best and works well in the trailer
i watched this before i started listening, and now im at the end of the suffering game, about to go to the lunar interlude. its been cool occasionally watching this again and seeing how many more scenes i recognize (pls dont spoil anything after suffering game in the replies)
I just now, on what is probably my thousandth watch, realized why it goes grayscale when the wolf is charging them. I am not a smart person.
500k of these views are just from me at this point
I will NEVER be over this trailer
Just finished balance, I’ve been pausing through this to find all the references and this is a goddamn masterpiece Edit: so it is slightly terrifying that this was made 2 months ago, cuz I’m now caught up to Ethersea *that was 2 months*
man i just finished the Murder on the Rockport Limited chapter and this makes me so so so excited for the rest of it
@Sam Muñoz they WERE
The last 5-or-so chapters are the BEST.
Balance was a trip
Been two years where’s the show at?
I would watch the fuck out of this
I was really hoping to see the Flaming Raging Poisoning Sword Of Doom in action :'(
Was Fantasy Costco removed from the video for trademark reasons?
0:24 I DO THAT!
This always gives me INSANE chills
Excuse me, what's the title of the music/song with the electric guitar used and the upbeat one?
...I'm literally just now realizing why it's called TAZ: Balance. I'm 57 episodes in. God.
Oh this is so amazing this is all I want
0:32 just an amazing tiny detail: Merle jumping up and down to try and see over Magnus's shoulder
I fucking love taz
Magnus deserves a dog give him a dog
Is this a real show? Or just a concept trailer? Cause if someone tells me this has existed for 2 fucking years and I never knew Im gonna flip my shit lmao
Listen to it, you will cry and laugh a whole lot
XD WHEN IT STARTS THE WORDS MADE ME LAUGH XD IT MADE ME LAUGH
This would be awesome show on Adult Swim yo creator if you read my comment phone Adult Swim and ask him to put you show on there cuz it would gladly get pretty popular
I believe they are making a series with Peacock
Btw, the banger that comes after the intro is the theme for "The Suffering Game"' in case anyone else was wondering. I believe you can find it in Griffin's bandcamp
I literally went back and rewatched this at .25 speed just to appreciate more of it.
I love coming back to this after every arc and seeing how much more I understand.
_makes grabby hand motions_ Hey McElroys, got any news on the show?
"you haven't seen his ass." lol-"I HAVE!" ROFL! and i read the Graphic Novel version once...
I've had this saved for MONTHS because i wanted to wait until I finished the balance arc holy crap
my brother my brother my dad and me
When I first watched this during Here There Be Gerblins, I was moved by the "God lied" scene. I looked forward to learning the context, and experiencing one of the show's deep, poignant moments I'd heard so much about. Turns out, it was Merle high out of his mind on pain meds. What a great podcast.
This is so fucking rad
Wait, is this actually going to become a thing?
I've watched this like ten times, and I only JUST NOW noticed Killian at the bottom of the well.
This is the platonic ideal of a trailer. It shows us so much, tells us exactly what The Adventure Zone is, and doesn't actually spoil any of the big reveals.
Yo why tf am I crying rn lol
Please please please please please let this happen
This is amazing to see all again after experiencing the entire story now.
Watching this is so wild when you think about how Griffin came up with all of this... his MIND, the power it holds!!
I love how takkos hat is magical the whole time
The way you draw Magnus is IMMACULATE
Pausing every few seconds now after I've watched the whole campaign, love the angus and I just noticed how Taako's hair color keeps changing
Watching this again after finishing the campaign and everything makes sense now
i miss this
SPOILER: The wolf gets out
every time i watch this i wanna cry pls the animated series pls
This trailer is incredible and I want the whole show done just. Like. This.
Wow. Who is the animator?
oh we’re crying! why is this so good!!!
this is garbage
This is the best thing.
finished the whole arc just so i could watch this trailer and understand what the heck was happening... glad i heard the story, thanks boys.
I really wish the Balance series was animated this way.
dear NBC, take fucking notes sincerely, concerned fan
Griffin plays literally everyone else? UUUMMMMMMM actually REAL fans will know that he didn't play the journalists in episode 60.
I haven't listened to Graduation yet. I was talking about Garyl the binicorn lol
@Gab Wood (Gab) yes but this is talking about Balance, not graduation. You could say the same for commitment since Clint is the GM for that
He also doesn't play Garyl!
I’m I..... this is my new favorite video ever., like SO GOOD AH. ALSO I NEED THE SONG ACK
So, I just finished this campaign a few days ago, and I'm just gonna say that I wish I wasn't listening at work because I was just losing my shit
1:30 "Hey thug what's your name, I'm about to tentacle your dick." The start of a loving relationship
Literal fucking chills
Who is that at 2:04?
@Jameson Prior Istus! Thank you!!!
goddess person...thing from 11th hour
This is epic
_Magnus rushes in!_
