Just finished watching these. I was glad to see Deryck so engaged and interested - he seems to be in a good place (especially when remembering the last sit down interview he did like this with Nic Harcourt). Frank seems like an affable dude.

I didn't really learn anything new but that's OK, it's good to see the band getting out there and doing appearances like this regardless.

I really enjoyed the vibe of these videos. Just a chill conversation, and it's nice to see Deryck in an interview-type setting without sunglasses. I feel like they were always on during Screaming Bloody Murder days.

Part 3 just gave me so much excitement! I just finished watching it earlier. I mean, the mention of a new documentary in the works? Two things that just go together are Sum 41 and documentaries! Cannot wait to see what they have to offer us this time around.

This.

I don't agree with Deryck about what's boring and what isn't though. I enjoyed watching the creative process more than the partying. I could watch a livestream of him just sitting in a room and working on stuff and still enjoy every minute of it.

I'm with you on that! We got to see a lot of that on the making of Underclass Hero, as well as during the process of SBM. Especially since this is another album that's so personal to Deryck regarding subject matter with recovery, it would really give us a lot of insight that's for sure!

All of these have been really great. I'm looking forward to more interviews once the album cycle gets going.

I'm surprised at his answer in regards to the more metal sound of Chuck in part 3. It sounded like there was no intention to be metal, it just came out that way. It's hard to believe that they would write a song like "The Bitter End" if they weren't trying to be a little more metal haha.

and I also really want to see some sort of documentary as well!
