    Intriguing; that is my rating for this video after careful consideration and review so that I might meet the one hundred character requirement and earn another merit badge in the comedy coup competition.

    Sure, political commentary has been done before, but rarely does it make me laugh this hard, and that's just with 90 seconds. It'd be amazing to see what you could do with a half-hour special.

    Not a bad premise. Compared to American politics, Canadian politics is pretty much tame and as such,, the show should be the anti house of cards. Corruption should be centered around getting an NHL team to come to a certain city or maybe a budget crisis involving road salt. The should take cues from parks and Recreation but amplify it to the nth degree.

    I posted comment here earlier that I hope wasn't interpreted poorly and deleted. I commented (or intended to) on how hard comedy writing must be when your location is in the midst of a media frenzy. I think it's a solid feat to be able to keep creating and keep the funny on a very fine line. SNL must deal with it weekly.

    I always enjoy your guys' videos and am never disappointed! I personally think this type of comedy has a place on CBC! Your topic is awesome, the cast is great, the writing is funny, and the comedic timing is spot on! I really hope you guys get into the Top 15 because you definitely deserve it! Good luck!

    The Hill is the most different project i've seen so far. maybe because it is an all women cast (at least main characters). Unfortunately it is the type of humour that doesn't make me laugh. i didn't care for the swearing, and sexual overtones, or should i say the directness of the topic.

    Again! Always putting on the best show possible! CBC aint seen nothing like this before so I am hoping they see just how much potential this show really has! Hilariously honest and keeps me in stitches every time! So congratulations to the Hill on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!!

    Clever, fun, fast paced!! I show I would make a point of watching very week. When the juicy stories from real life die down - because this is Canada - you can work on back story characters. Cool- good luck tomorrow :)

    I really think this show has some amazing potential. With writing and a cast like this you guys have a great chance at winning. Politics have been done over and over again but the Hill could be that one show that stands out from the rest. Good luck!

    Always hard to tell from the short clip what your show would be about but not in this one. I must say that the political humour is good but not something I would be interested in watching. but very slick filming good acting. good Luck this week

    I like The Hill and think there's a needed place in Canadian TV for a fast-paced, funny, political show. There's an edge here, kind of like Veep. My girlfriend and I recently started watching West Wing, so I can see an influence there as well. Good luck guys.

    Lot's of different characters on display. Maybe too many but time will tell. Very well done video, cuts back and forth nicely between stories and characters but tells enough about each in a very short time frame which is hard to do. Keep it coming.

    As I've said before about this project, I am looking forward to someone approaching the politics in this country with a less reserves, all out style. Your videos continue to have me rooting for you and I look forward to more. I hope that you can introduce us to some of the other players in the weeks to come, as I'd love to know which characters (and their scandals) will be a part of the storylines.

    I hope you guys don't find it too liberal of me to say that I like where this is going. On a conservative estimate, I'd say you'll make it to the Top 15. I'm sure the people over at the other projects will be green with envy, and will do anything to bloc your success. I'm sure we all agree that would be nothing new, but the democratic votes from the fans will do the talking.

    Now lets PARTY!

    While I think that you forgot to talk about the 'hype' part of this week's challenge, I personally, forgive you based on your team's dialogue! Very sharp-tongued (could be even more so) and nicely balanced with pure moments of goofiness. The acting is fair to good as well, in my opinion. Good luck!!

    Video didn't do much as goes the week 5 challenge, but your sell sheet is pretty good. Though I wouldn't have included that the CBC itself is backing you, makes you look like "teacher's pet", as it were. All that being said, I do like the idea of the show. If they can do this with the US and UK governments, we can do it here!
