commodoreHUSTLE is a subseries of videos from LRR. It establishes a specific continuity and canon for the self-described "us playing us" videos in the vein of Format War and All The Little People. HUSTLE acts as a kind of "Marvel Ultimate Universe" analogue to any established canon; the writing draws at will from any past videos, but no aspect of LRR canon applies to HUSTLE until a HUSTLE video references it.

The first season of commodoreHUSTLE videos were much longer than the regular weekly updates (excluding An Interview with Uwe Boll). The first season updated on the first Monday of each month although Episode 3 was late because of Desert Bus 2. Successive seasons have updated less regularly with fewer and shorter episodes. In preperation to moving to The Escapist, commodoreHUSTLEs starting with Matt Gets His Groove moved away from multi video plot lines.

Website

commodoreHUSTLE had its own website at http://commodorehustle.com/ for new converts courtesy of the series, but who weren't familiar with LoadingReadyRun. The above URL now redirects directly to the LoadingReadyRun homepage. However, other URLs (the Cast Page, for instance) at the website still work (although with some php errors).

Trivia

  • At LRRCon, Graham showed a test reel of what commodoreHUSTLE's original idea was. (Matt had no recollection of filming it.) It was originally a fake documentary in the style of The Office. After filming it, the crew decided it wasn't very good, and went in the current direction with it. Fan opinion of it was that it was pretty funny, but not quite as good as what we actually got.
