  • I hate to be that guy but this Steven kid is the weak link in your chain, the third wheel... I get that he was essential for you guys to get going but now that you are I think it would be best if he was bts, he really doesn't fit with your guyes style.

  • As someone who loves to do arts & crafts, I can rly relate to Shane in his creative process. Just starting out with a general idea in mind and let your hands do its thing, see where it takes you. Then you just make some more decisions along the way until you have your finished product! Friends would always ask "How???" but honestly I've no idea either. Doesn't rly matter how you do it as long as it looks decent in the end.

  • OMG the torch. Thank you so much. Shane. Watching these instead of homework. People on earth, follow and do. So fun. I don't know how to get my lame imitation of the entire, just Shane do it out there, but. . . we could. Loving people, and their creative side, and thank you Shane for the YES, simplicity. Everyone is smart enough to figure this out from your awesome example, and it will be just fun for the world, and enjoyment. We all need the simple, fun, enjoyment and worldwide talent. I really want to see a guy from Australia, a chic from Canada, a Chicagoan, an Argentinan, a Cambodian, or even a North Korean, Englandite, Francian, Italian. . . ANYONE...get a puppet and get it on the web. Create your reality, via a puppet show. Neat, fun, innocent idea. Thanks again, Shane. Just let's do it. The world needs the fun lovin' right now. We, maybe can at least come up with some of that. There has to be more people than this one dude, a.k.a. MR. SHANE. Seriously, there may be many more of him. Share the talent people. We need you.

  • Oh. I am in west central Illinois, used to live in Chicago suburb, just had a tornado and the pour down and wind gusting up to 60 m.p.h, while taking my mom to an MRI. Ah, the loveliness. Autumn smell and crunch and wet and wild and windy. 80 degrees yesterday, 30's tonight. Hahaha. Noone should be born and live and die in this state. . . but, IF YOU WERE AND ARE AND DID, YAY, you did, and good for ya'. Ughulaciousness. Since day one. Yet, an incredible human accomplishment. Yay to the WATCHER boys.

    RosettaRosetta2 months ago
  • Shane during the Puppet Preview at the office is really the most human I've ever seen him look. Like not even in behaviour. He just looks really like. Guy. Idk what it is but whatever demon is possessing him really put in the effort that day

  • I think we need a whole BTS on puppet history on like the process of research, writing, and then filming the show etc.

    MarianneMarianne2 months ago
  • I love that they have a person who’s written and published history books being a researcher for this show. :) I just, love it. Plus, I have a friend who’s bought the book, and he highly recommends. He says it’s rad.

    RydeRyde3 months ago
  • So impressed with the puppet-making! Shane is quite artistic! On another note, such a different mood without Ryan. A lot of people are saying this video is calmer, and it's so true! It feels a little bit like two people who still aren't able to be too weird without each other - which I think is the reason why he was so roasted! Easier to roast him than each other...
