    The audio quality was unintelligible. If I can't understand or hear the script (which was also pretty terrible when you could hear it) it is hard to really enjoy it... Might have been a funny concept. Poorly executed!!!

    Excited to see more from this! Check out The Troupe, too! (We're fellow Saskatonians.)

    You guys look a little nervous when speaking directly to the camera (eyeballs almost sweating, shifty eyes, looking away often, not exuding a lot of confidence). Otherwise this seems pretty original and something I would watch. Your characters seem personable.

    Compared to a random sampling of some of the more interesting sounding/looking submissions this one certainly has a professional feel to it and excellent plot potential.

    I've seen a few of these type of videos that describe what we will see in future videos rather than showing us. I did think the concept sounded interesting, and I liked the two guys on the couch describing what to expect. Would like to see a short clip of an sample episode.

    Solid dramatic concept. Nice change from the garden variety reality comedy based or variety comedy sort of stuff done already on air. Nice to see a prairie concept not stuck on being a popular genre or a rip off.

    I love this concept! Just like Hockey Strike "Reality Check" episode, except Scott and Dave don't want to leave.

    I can definitely see the potential for some side splitting events and being able to identify with the characters easily. Looking forward to it!

    I'm intrigued. I want to see more as I think it's an excellent concept. The bios of the cast and crew seem have the professional pedigree to make it work too :).

    I understand the concept. I think it could have potential if they get creative about it. To me, the video wasn't funny though.
    We have started shooting, but need your help to finish. Take a look at us on IndieGoGo.
