M. John Kennedy,
Having seen some of the actors from this in full costume walking around a sci-fi con last year, curiosity finally got the best of me and I picked up a DVD of Season 1 through their web site.
Having NO expectations, I have to say that I was really pleasantly surprised! This is sort of a cross between "The Trailer Park Boys" and "Heroes". ...It's a comedy of sorts, but also has some worthwhile drama. Some of the CGI effects are great and some are intentionally goofy.
The plot is all tangled and sometimes doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but it's so fun to watch I often found myself happily lost just watching the strange scenes unfold.
Like most low-budget indie productions, the acting is occasionally lacking, but it seems in the second and third episodes all the actors got more comfortable with their roles and took it up a notch--especially Paul Kingston (Master Brood). Peter Higginson (Chromos) is superb throughout! And Captain Epic is just simply hilarious--what a great character--he's the Tick crossed with Captain America.
To the makers and actors: I hope you don't give up on this and give us some more great episodes. To potential views: Why not? Support the Canadian little guy here--you'll definitely get some good laughs and entertainment from it. ...And it's far better than the last season of "Heroes".
