One of the best things I have ever seen. Original, tragic, funny. If episodic webseries were all Joss Whedon ever did from now on, it would be fine. However, he also makes great television, films and interviews. I would imagine he also makes great lo fat Italian cuisine, because that's how in the bag I am for his storytelling.
A good cheapie web miniseries deserving of cult status and a little critical text on the experiment of web-only release, and otherwise probably uninteresting to anyone else not direct fans of some of the participants in the show, such as Joss Whedon and Neil Patrick Harris. --PolarisDiB
This reminded me of Flight of the Conchords. I liked the music, the concept, the acting, and especially the bleakness of it. The one thing that didn't work for me was most of the comedy. "-You're driving a spork into your leg. -So I am. Hilarious." No, not really.
There is so much heart in this, and it gets broken.The songs are great and even though it's always campy and fun, there are real and dark emotions. I find I laugh all the way through, but the ending always hits home hard. It draws me so into the world, into the characters, that by the end I'm eating it all up and it's pushing all the right buttons. The last line is perfect and tells the whole tale, you see his truth.
not a rabid fan, but i do like whedon's stuff quite a bit - especially firefly, which was my introduction to nathan fillion, but it's really neil patrick harris who shines here. there are some great classic comedic lines too: "the hammer is my penis." the newscasters: "it's a great day to be homeless!" "it sure is!" and my favorite - captain hammer on "the deltoids of compassion and the abs of being kind." niiice!
Sweet concept, incredible songs, perfect casting. Its so great to see Joss working outside of studio restraints. Loved the blend of drama and comedy, something Joss can handle really well as seen with previous television shows he has produced. NPH is the bomb.
