Week #3 The Differentiator Finishing Moves

Although we’ve seen sitcoms before, we’ve incorporated a unique style of storytelling which includes freezing of the scene to address the audience, texting, and most importantly the use of teen input in the writing process. Needless to say, we've opened the doors to a younger audience by ‘keeping it clean’ so to speak, but without excluding the older audience.

    I like letting the teenagers have a voice. Thanks for that. And I touched by the modern family idea; the possibility that you can find support and love from outside your immediate circle. Phil is likeable, but sometimes a little too obvious in the acting. I would be even more compelled if I wasn't aware of him playing to the camera, that's when he is clearest. And it is also when he is more dignified. How a bout a wrestler that is utterly earnest instead of putting on a character? What if he genuinely was utterly passionate and ready to "fight" for his kids? Just a thought. Good luck.

    Love the idea of a family comedy! Clean but funny, involving a younger audience but not excluding the older folks - great thinkin! I think it's harder to put together something clean and funny, the "easy way out" is throwin a lot of swears and sex on the screen to make people laugh. So bravo for taking this on! Keep it up :)

    A family comedy is a good idea, and certainly unique in this contest. I would like to see this move on in the competition!

    Super cute idea! I love family stuff, I want a tad more comedy though and how your comedy is different from others. But generally an endearing concept and I'm excited to see this one thrive.

    it's true you are different in that there aren't any kids in the other ones. Pretty cool idea, I'd like to see some finishing moves though, like a massive body slam.

    this weeks video was well done, but a bit boring. I think the wholesome and family friendly take on your show will definitely get some viewers hooked just not sure if it will get everyone to tune in. keep working.

    I really like the concept of a former wrestler living in his day to day lifestyle. Always fun to see what happens to these larger than life characters when their careers finish up. The teens in the show being writers is a unique concept as well and should help with connecting an older generation with a younger generation!

    Funny concept guys! Great work. The wrestler lifestyle meets teen girls could have a lot of potential for comedy. Keep the ideas flowing. And congrats on making Top 55. Here's to seeing you in the top 15 :)

    I think this show needs some work. It looks like it was a lot of fun making but I am not seeing how this will be a long term sitcom idea.

    I have a hard time believing that this show has a lot of potential depth. It's good on the surface but I can't help but feel like there is still a lack of long term plan for how this show and is characters can evolve. Wrestling jokes are so 2007

    This really helps clarify the premise and it definitely sounds interesting. PLus "Finishing Moves" makes a little more sense to me now. Going to be interesting to see how you incorporate some of those elements.

    I have to say this is a nice concept for a show. Older guy having to adapt to living with teenagers. You grab both demographics that way too, which is smart. Plus, who doesn't love wrestling. Good luck!

    I agree a bit with some of the comments here about liking the first two videos a lot more. The cuts in this one threw me, and the texting sequence was lingered over as something novel, but it is used with some frequency in both large scale and small scale television shows. The bookends on this video weren't quite working for me, a lot of sameness.

    I liked your first two videos more than this one. I am trying to figure out why. I think maybe they were cleaner cut and a little more professional looking. I see the potential in this show, but as I imagine lots of people will be saying, the actors are a little undertrained. I like their faces for the roles but they should practice more with the camera to get more comfortable, work together on scenes, and if they have the time and money looking into professional training. There is a lot of potential in these actors, characters and show. :)

    I don't get it. I mean, when they asked for the bumpers to be the start and end of your videos, was that not something that should have been adhered to? I really hope we see some PRO WRESTLING anything, and less of the kids.

    I like this idea a lot - the concept reminds me a lot of "Fresh Prince of Bel Air", and that's not a bad thing. I think utilizing the freeze frames could be a bit cheesy depending on how they are done - not sure people can pull of a Zach from Saved by the Bell anymore.

    It's great that you have the teen input for your show, but I'm worried this might lead to the majority of the jokes being directed towards young teens and lacking the adult humour aspect. If you are able to keep in the adult jokes I could see you grabbing a larger audience, but I think this might be really hard to do. Good luck with the competition!

    It's written by adults, teens tweak, but A-Z is written by experienced writers. Have no fear C!

    this was pretty well done. I am not sure how original the idea is though. I don't know if having young people help write the show is a good idea. this video entertained me though.
