I've come into terms with there being no resurgence, the golden era of MDE was at it's youth, they had a good run so it's hard to say they ever had a peak but I think 2012-2016 was the best, or 2010-2015 if we're talking about when the content was actually at its point of inception. From here on I only expect to get what we've gotten so far - a very slow staggered release of vaulted MDE content as well as some 'REAL' new content from Charls/Ruse/Hayden or Sam/Nick/Don/whoever once every few months. I've been on board with HW since day one but I've been cancelling and resubbing with activity spikes - decided to stop that now though and I'm just ride or die. Some of the hydewars advice vids are pretty good, Sam is still funny but it's obviously not the same. The latest hydewars release was in november, and it was an hour long advice piece which he previously already gave in an older episode (titled: eating in bed). Sam's going to be releasing two new vids by the end of this month (so he says, might come out even later than that...), one is a hydewars and the other is a 30 minute compilation of funny vids (Happy World Daddy Episode 3 -- previously titled crush500). Happy World Daddy is world peace season 2 only it's just a third of MDE (1/3 of the main trio and 1/3 of the editors, musicians, etc) and it's nowhere near as good. It's still pretty entertaining though, some bits are complete shit, the one Zach made about the vet with PTSD for example, but for the most part just imagine 30 minutes of the stuff which you saw on the MDE channel from Sam, just present day. I'm always excited when a new Happy World Daddy is released, but we're only getting 2 episodes per year... Here's the preview for HWD ep 3:
Might be safe to say at this point that when it comes to getting all the boys back together Sam included, we can only hope for one last hurrah - kind of like when an old 70's band comes back for a re-union tour. It'll give some closure but don't expect much. Sam's been trying to get the crew back together but it's not happening anytime soon as Charls has made clear. Don't really care about any of the in-group drama, that's for them to work out and there's a lot of false info going around about Sam thanks to the smear campaign on 8chan.
Yeah, I've been telling myself: the current fragmented state of MDE is a can of worms, don't spend too much time worrying about it and just appreciate releases when they actually come.
