    Actually funny, as opposed to shock-and-schlock faux funny. With a beefed-up cast, this could be excellent.

    I love the beauty. I know that's not the point, but it's there. The cinematography is golden and lovely and gives it a period feel so that I suspend my expertise and wait to be shown the world. I also like the wry humour. And as a mom, I like that I can show this one to my kids. That is a rare nobility - universal human comedy.

    A hilarious concept with some hilarious people. This show oozes Canadianism! Everyone at some time ha passed through one of these communities with ridiculous historic characters; peeking behind the curtain to see what these could-be professional artists are like is comic gold waiting to happen.

    I'm a little interested in Geoff Legacy as a character--I wish I got to know more about your show and its setting and primary characters. I'm assuming Geoff will not be in the rest of the episode(s)? It all seemed a little beside the point, though the special effects bit was interesting.
