I like that this is a true trailer; scenes from what looks like an actual episode that's already "in the can". Well edited, great timing, esp. on the scene with the Spanish bike guy, "this is not over" - I hope not! Good luck on the next round, you deserve to be there.

    Quite the competition from the east to the west coast and such an excellent group of participants makes it hard to pick just 15. I hope CBC gives you each a coffee mug or something for getting to the top 55. Best wishes to all.

    I liked what I saw, but I'm not sure if I understand what the idea is behind making it different. I usually don't like being told directly what makes something so different, but in this case, I would have been alright with it. That being said, I liked what I saw!

    Congrats on making it to the top 55 in the competition. I started following your project after this latest vid, which is the only one I've actually seen. I like the talent - quirky and the weirdness and the surprises of the twists and turns but am not sure what the show is about yet.

    Seemed a bit too close to what we got in the teaser. What sets you apart? I see that you have what appears to be some interesting characters and some funny situations but I'm a bit lost on how this video shows the differences. Just a longer cut of a teaser that to be fair I really liked.

    Good production value, great performances, and funny writing! I personally found that this video felt like more like another trailer than a "differentiator" clip, though. However, I'm genuinely surprised this project doesn't have more followers. Funny stuff all around :) Keep it up!

    I just came across this group and I am glad I did! Talented group of actors, great production value etc.
    I think the "idiot" factor to the idea always makes for great comedy! I think of Mr. Bean, Bridgette Jones, Steve Carell in a lot of his roles. Always goes over really well, when you are embarrassed for the characters continuously, but at the same time can't stop watching with the hopes that at some point they might actually find away to succeed in life. We are also not too far into the missions and I already get a really good sense of the show style, vibe, dialogue etc.
    Keep it up guys! Look forward to seeing more:)

    Sketch comedy must be short and to the point these days. GOOD sketch comedy is rare, and the best example I can think of is This Hour Has 22 Minutes. There's the one to look to. Keep in mind it's the writers that make the people who speak and move on cue, sound good :-)

    It was a little hard to hear some of the dialogue, especially at the beginning because soundtrack was a bit overpowering. I still am not sure how any of this makes you different – but there is definitely a story in there somewhere – I just can’t see how it all loops together. From the little bits that you show, I still want to see more but if it continues to be disjointed vignettes I may just tire and head elsewhere – I can be fickle that way. Curiosity lasts only so long, and then you want to fill in the empty spaces to see the whole picture.

    I sort of get how you are saying you are unique by saying we would do this, then show a clip, and then ask would you? I just find these clips a little everywhere and don't really understand how they relate to your concept of three friends running a restaurant. Maybe they are actual clips from your show, but I felt they could have been set up a bit better, or just stick to one of the clips as there is only 90 seconds of time to work with. I'm glad that you did manage to keep the video funny though. Good luck with the competition guys!
