Hey you guys; i think you guys look great in the show and I think you are funny. I loved your singing too, that was great. That little dance laugh got a chuckle out of me as well. Keep up the good work all the team!

    Way to go on your comedy coup efforts to date. You have succeeded in making it to the top 55 and that is something to be proud of. Already the competition is getting tough as the quality of the competitors gets refined. Best wishes for making it to the next level.

    I can see potential here for a lot of funny bits. If you can continue to keep it fresh and timely you should do well. When I read comedy action musical it almost scared me off, not big on musicals.

    Differentiators are tough to do, I would think. I mean, by this point you're so focussed on what your show is, you forget why it's different. It just is what it is, you know? You guys managed to show how different you are in a definitely unique and fun way! I love it!

    I think you guys were trying something pretty ambitious here, kudos for that. However, I think if you guys want to have that extra edge to continue competing, you might want to consider bumping up the quality of your cinematography and sound recording, I know that content is key but sound is easily 50% of the experience and a proper sound recordist would make a huge difference! Keep up the good work, though!

    A very interesting concept. I've always been a sucker for jokes about people who find themselves in the wrong time period. Plus there needs to be more musical television. The Buffy episode was not enough!

    I like your musical number about B&E, maybe could have subbed in some professional singers? I thought it was quite funny when you started dancing together. Unique is a good word for this.

    im tuning in from all the way down under and what I've come to realize about this show is that it originates in BC, before christ. but watch it cuz its still has some nutritional value, even for those who are gluten free.

    A musical, haven't sen that approach by anyone else. Seems like you found a fifties style approach that is different from others. Will have to see if you can keep the humor going before your voice runs out.

    If there's one thing I've learned here, it's that all eligible bachelors should dress like you guys. Impeccable dressers and sharp comedy are what the CBC needs, but bad.

    I loved this piece! I wish you two could've shown a bit more enthusiasm and more motivation within the pilot, but overall it was still good. The small dance number in the middle was quite enjoyable, will the show incorporate more dance numbers? I'm a fan of musicals myself, and seeing you two do it made my day.

    The dance and song were quite original. The tuxedoes finished off the musical comedy act. You weren't in tune with each other for part of the song, but the dance moves made up for it.

    Thanks for the comment, Ashley! As director, I try and break all my actors, and then build them back up before every scene. Every scene. Next time I will hit them harder in order to extract more enthusiasm.

    Jokes aside, thank you for your feedback.

    Thank you, Chelsea! Our idea is that the song(s) in each episode can come at anytime. Hopefully the audience will anticipate this and be surprised.
