A big dissapointment.

Harry, Sucho, I'm going to be honest with you and say that this was very disappointing. Look, I have no right to give either one of you a zero, but thought that something needed to be said.

When it comes to the visuals, it's mostly excellent considering that this was done in a style that other cartoonists would consider ill-suited for animation. This is up to par with SunnyGOES, Adam Phillips, Ferguson Winston, and Spike Vallentine when it comes to that department. Plus, Bustilda was drawn great unlike the women that Richie Zirbes draws. (Seriously, he draws the UGLIEST women I have seen, and not the good ugly either.) Sucho did a great job on the backgrounds, although many of the colors you two chose were done in questionable taste. (Example: The reception scene.) In terms of sound, your music and voice acting were excellent, but Bustilda's voice sounded bad, as in bad acting. You probably intended this, but it's not much of an excuse.
Finally, there's the content, which felt uninspired, scripted, and very banal. On one hand, your staging is excellent as well as the pacing. However, well-staged tricky angles and excellent animation don't compensate for how droll this was. I mean, every joke in this was lacking, felt forced, and predictable. I see that you didn't include any real nudity aside from that Ale gag, but if you're going for violence and vulgarity: Go all out! Try watching Rats on Cocaine, or Ralph Bakshi's Heavy Traffic. In addition, rather than write this out on a script, try drawing out on a storyboard first to see if it actually works. Of course, I may be appreciative of you using your own characters, but that won't matter if this ends up being another popular throwaway series. In short, I didn't laugh at all.

The Good:
-Great art and animation
-Mostly great voice acting
-Excellent music
-Nice staging and pace

The Bad:
-Unfunny, every joke in this was just contrived
-Bustilda's voice sounded deadpan and didn't contribute to anything.

Overall: Harry, I hope you haven't gotten complacent over the years because you're too damned good to be doing mediocre shit. Here's a six for the effort. (3/5)
