I hope the remark about timeline being loved by all was sarcastic. I have yet to hear a single positive comment about timeline since creation.

you should take it all as sarcasm, except maybe the occasional point raised by natasha "anonymous" goddard ;)

Eh. It was an impressive bit of work. Nice animation. Mildly interesting. It was just kind of boring. I eventually started hoping it would be over soon. Sound and animation were fine. Concept seemed ok, but I'm wondering if you achieved what you set out to achieve. The professor dude was boring. The street man was odd but boring. The apple guy was creepy, but boring. "They took our jobs." That was very funny. I think maybe if the characters were more colorful.. they just kind of droned on.. the professor was professory.. apple dude not nerdy.. the politician like dude being a drone kind of fit.. and the street guy.. well maybe he was too colorful..

well i didn't set out to make the main characters flail around the screen like some kind of egoraptor parody. the simple animation / the characters being fairly static is intentional, the humour is derrived from the script and the juxtaposition between the subtle changes of the backgrounds and the fictional events that are being discussed. i'm sorry that it wasn't your cup of tea!

Flash has issues with audio sync LOL that's a good one and the only thing I found funny about this animation. This was pretty boring to watch sorry but that is what I thought about it. The artword is fine and the audio quality is good even if out of sync. Learn to properly sync audio because it isn't flash that has an issue.

killourkid responds:

not enough hentai and dragon ball z references for you? audio is synced fine if you don't click around on other shit while you're watching. thanks for the half a star rating for my artwork tho yeah

Interesting. To be honest, besides the "I LIKED THE PART WITH FACEBOOK" and the part with Beast, wasn't much for comedy. But was thought-provoking. I look forward to this series, not so much for its comedy, but rather for its original storyline. 5/5 well earned.

oh dear haha i'll try and be funnier next time ;) thanks for the high score!
