Time is a big one. I'll also say while the cast is great, John does a good job of DMing, and the cast does really well with using the system, I find it hard to watch with the same focus I have with other shows. CoS, Mirrorshades, Swansong, I consistantly watched full screen, glancing at chat occasionally and typing, generally active in the channel. With Blades, I feel like I'm more willing to put it in the background, mute it if I want to listen to a quick YT video, stuff like that. I think I could attribute one (or both) of two things.
Which kind of feels weird. I enjoy Geoff/Zeke, and think John does a good job with DMing and using the world (you'd think, considering he made the damn system), and I enjoy the setting/style as a whole... but it is quite the contrast to previous Rollplay shows, and perhaps it's just not my thing.
The system works well as a player, and they do a pretty good job of roleplaying no matter in what "section" they're in... but everything feels like it's just "going through the motions". With other shows, everything just flows together; no "this is downtime" "It's time to deal with the random entanglement(s) now" "Let's do what you want to do now" - everything just happens. It's very subtle, but the feeling is there.
