Back on Limmy I'm a wee bit sad he's not doing any more Show. I like his new content a lot and he's slipped into the format great but I'll miss stuff like that, sketches and characters. Seeing him explain why he doesn't want to do it makes sense though

In a perfect world we'd have a collaborative Limmy who enjoys the creative process more. I'm very sad not to get more sketches, not to get his vision of a sitcom, or other dream projects (I can imagine him in a dark comedy horror/twilight zone anthology, for example). He's also an excellent actor, I'd love to have seen him popping up in more things. It sounds like the creative and collaborative process exhausts and frustrates him though, and to be fair it does sound like a pain - especially coming down from Glasgow to have to deal with folk in London just to inch any project forward.

His twitch streams are fine, and it's what he wants to do. But the highs aren't so high, the laughs much fewer and smaller. It raises a smile now and then, but I'm not going to watch hours of a man playing video games and getting cranky with the chat just for those moments. The more I watch of the streams the more I selfishly wish the time and effort was going into vines or youtube vids instead.

Aye I agree totally. Limmy's natural acting ability is gonna be missed, I'm all for him doing what he wants to avoid the burnout he must have been starting to feel with TV but I'm not a big stream follower myself.  I just find myself checking out the highlights rather than bothering with the whole thing

I'm not sure Limmy's forte is being a guest on talk shows to be honest, even if they're niche internet things with alt comics of the day.

He's great on Herring's podcast both times.

Limmy seems an all-in kind of guy and so I can imagine him in a year maybe 2 sacking the whole streaming thing off and finding something else to get passionate about. Like any 'dream' job repetition breeds contempt so I can see him getting bored and moving on.

Either that or Nilesy kidnaps him and makes him his sex goon.

It's sad that the thing that pays his bills is the thing that makes the streams not worth bothering with. The constant interruptions from people slinging him a quid to hear a catchphrase from a decade ago kill it stone dead whenever he starts getting into something. His old streams were so much better, back when he could finish a sentence without having to stop and wish 5 people a happy birthday.

The wee "best of" reel he had at the start of the streams is the only thing worth watching, for me. Same as above, the interaction with the chat is poison. Just hearing him chunter away to himself playing a game would be fine but he doesn't even get to do that. The constant asking chat for playing directions then berating them for being wrong is frustrating, not entertaining. It's like watching someone having to deal with a load of children.

There is a touch of Gus Honeybun's Magic Birthdays to these streams, if Gus was a tetchy Scottish shut-in. Like a few others have said, I'm pleased for him, and he seems happy, but Homemade Show really underlined that he's capable of so much more.

There will be no more TV, because he isn't funny and he knows it.

Quick look around shows there's no correlation between being funny and having a TV show

It's a shame he's not doing the live shows anymore. Would have gone to them even if they were just clips of him torturing minecraft villagers followed by a Q&A.

Totally agree, fair play to him though. I've seen him live three times, all of the shows had very different formats but they were all brilliant. The Vines screening was a delirious nightmare in the best possible way.

I'm loving the Death Stranding streams, nice to see him play a game for a whole stream rather than just an hour on, then an hour on another game.

Didn't think much of the game in first few streams, so have no idea what's going on, but it's all very enjoyable.

“It’s an absolute fooking scyam!” - Any other Limmy fans go to bed laughing about that last night?

Delights me when he says he’s gonna stream every day for the rest of his life. That’s fine with me.

I loved him playing that horrible game for kids yesterday, deconstructing every little moment.

Don't get as much from the gaming side of his streams usually but the Among Us stuff last night was fantastic, particularly when Limmy was the imposter.
