Love your onesies and your "perfect joke". I didn't find this added much to your pitch, but, as a fellow couper, this hype video was a tough one, and you created a lot of hype from the kijiji incident, which was solid. Liked you guys from the beginning, still aboard.

    I really like the initial concept of the show, guys! Although this video seemed somewhat unprofessional with it's awkward cuts and drinking on camera. I am looking forward to seeing the outcome of this project though, because the idea is good and I like what you've done before this mission.

    Like the concept, I don't think we can ever have enough situational comedies like these. As long as there are interesting characters, and I think yours are, especially the female characters, we should see more of them in these mission videos... keep that in mind for the coming weeks.

    You guys have a great concept. Leasing out an apartment to quirks, jerks and great looking gals has potential. If only could could become the owners of the whole complex and be the landlords leasing to say 24 potential suites. WOW the cross section of people and the relationships there in and outside could be a faourite tv comedy

    It is a good concept but I don't like the film style or the 'mockumentary' style. It just doesn't fit very well I think. Maybe with the budget you could very well improve it but of course that would be hard to do without winning! Good luck.

I look forward to what you guys have to offer in the top 15 and aim for more than high school humor. Cheers

    This show would work if it weren't a mockumentary, that style has been way overdone lately. The sell sheet is a big childish, it would have worked better if you went with the newspaper theme that you've been going with the whole time. I'm also starting to think that you don't actually have a third member as she never appears in any of your vlog style videos.

    I liked the concept and the tone of previous videos, but the macho attitude and questionable comments about women in this one are off-putting. Also, you should be using every opportunity to showcase your editing and production prowess and that's missing from this video. You had some cool stuff going on before, don't back off now. It comes off as cocky.

    I certainly didn't feel macho in my girlfriends onesie. And I was trying to express that we wanted to have fully developed female characters and play with gender norms a little bit. For example - we see Jana as the dad, Ryan as the mom, Kenny as the baby, and Ashley as somewhat of a Bart Simpson type.

    I hope that clears things up. Thanks for a thoughtful comment.

Maybe it was the editing but to say that this show was about some guy who probably broke up with his girlfriend tells me he doesn't know. Maybe he should watch the teaser. Also not having one of your key people there makes me think. Not good.

    I have liked your show concept from the beginning, however the video was lacking in enthusiasm for selling your project. I think the the sell sheet was lacking in something too.

    getting drunk was a good closer but always be sure to hype some grub to go along with it - and localize it a bit more and explore neighbourhoods ( good/bad) and mythologies/icons of your fair city and province. and how pope there make it through the winter!

    I like your premise but also agree with what Sadie (see below) said. The video this week was pretty casual for this late in the game. I think you will need to bring it up a notch to keep us all interested and coming back.

    Really like the onesies, have not seen these in any other videos. The explanation of the show was very interesting and makes me want to see more. Looking forward to seeing more of this show.

    I really like the premise of this show, and I think it has a lot of potential. The "hype it" really seemed just a little too casual and relaxed for this point in the game. Best of luck, because I really do want to see this show move forward to the top 15!

    It was super relaxed! We were hoping to make the focus shift to the content but I agree it could have been more dynamic.

    Smiled at the switch to onsies. Liked that. LIke your accents, natural, not over-done, real. Rough cuts though. Good luck!

    Hmmm. You didn't tell me anything about the show I didn't already know. The casual quality of this video felt kinda slacker. That kind of humor doesn't draw me in. Sorry onesies. I would, however love to hear more about the fake kijiji responses.

    Hey Krista, we agree that it was slightly repetitive information but the challenge told us to pretend our previously created support material didn't exist so we had to get the meat of the idea stated again! There's a video on our facebook page that states some of the Kijiji responses if you'd like to check it out! http://theleasetv.com/2014/09/16/busted/

    This video wasn't my favourite of all your other ones, maybe it felt too casual, but I have loved your concept from day 1 and if your show wins I'd definitely be tuning in! Keep up the good work! :)

    Love this week's video. You two guys are a great comedy team-you feed well off one another. I thought The onesies were a great idea and make a memorable media event. The show and after party should be a blast. Looking forward to more videos.

    A good idea with solid people on the project but it strikes me as a tough concept to keep going. Is this really going to be much different then Friends, Seinfeld, or any of those many comedy shows where young people struggle to live together? Will it suffer or benefit from being in a smaller town than NY?

    Hey Andrew! We've learned that a strong concept is something that's familiar but different. We wanted to create a show that's easy to make with fun and engaging characters to pull it through week to week. Looking at the shows you referenced you won't find a whole lot more than 3-5 go-to recurring settings and with a city as colorful and unique as St. John's we'll have no problem finding engaging content from their surroundings! Great questions though these are great points to think about!

    I really like the way you set this up! The hype video was casual and engaging to the point of making me want a onesie. The sell sheet, on the other hand, is very tight and clear as to the direction you'll take the show. Great combo. Loved the kijiji ad!

    "Beer and Onesies" could make for an interesting episode title, methinks... Also, I like the idea of women who want to "do" other things besides the guys as well. GIRL POWER, SON
