The success of Rtil's epic Project Freetown: Metropolis Circuit has in no way inspired Zekey and myself to create this animation about rolling skating chain smokers.

In this episode some guy skates around because she's never going to let him win or something.

EDIT: Haha frontpage, I guess someone has a sense of humour!

This is...

Innovation... I mean, this flash is pretty much art... I like how the flash expresses the oppression of the evil chain smoker by having the man on the roller blades ride down the lane with a great deal of stress and then having the chain smoker mock his efforts. It just really emphasises the point that chain smokers are diabolical pricks. I love it.

Short, but still funny.

Yes, I do like Metropolis Circuit. Its one of my favorite Flashes by one of my favorite authors. But, apparently unlike certain other users, I can appreciate a bit of humor poking fun at how little rtil developed the story for that little intro to Project Freetown.

Hit rtil's animation right where it hurt: right in the weak storyline. He's going to have to make longer stories when he gets to the real thing for Freetown... Also, showed the other main points of the Flash: the generic characters, the roller skating, and the smoking.

A bit short, and yet all too slow in comparison to the much-faster original. You also coulda showed a bit more on the smoking, since that was definitely present in the real thing.

Not a bad animation at all, for the shortness of it. Had its share of humor about the original, so mission definitely accomplished on this one.
5/5, 9/10.

Cambo responds:

it was only supposed to be slow-paced to draw attention to how nothing happens - if it was faster you wouldn't be bored while it's happening and so it wouldn't really work

maybe i could have done more with the smoking but i couldn't think of anything to be honest

that's a really good review though, thanks

Because some wads can't take a joke

Definitely... Something

The art is good as is the animation. I don't quite understand the joke, but I suppose I didn't watch the Metropolis Circuit so I'm not supposed to get it. I still liked it none the less.
