I liked it,

I really enjoyed it! Well sort of...

I really like the art direction, characters (except marcus), and voice acting!

But can I ask you one question?
Can I kill Marcus??? PLEASE?!?!? HE NEEDS TO DIE

Jonimator responds:

all in due time :P
what people don't realize, and I probably should've made known, is that this is only the first episode. Marcus will get what's coming to him at some point or another :)

I have something to say here...

This was actually pretty good & better than some are giving it credit for, I don't think they are being fair. Many may be leveling it down because it makes them uncomfortable to have to question what is going on between the characters & what their relationship is, but I believe that was intentional, to keep the viewer guessing. For example, we probably all expected an oncoming onslaught & the serious guy would punch the other guy & knock him into the mob to die, but he would annoy them all away & end up the hero, making the serious guy look stupid & even more pissed off. But the surprise to the ending was that he went about it in the mature fashion & accepted his punishment, likely plotting to get back at him another way or hope to avoid him altogether. Nice character touch.

Nothing is truly original, everything is a copy of something, including the characters Bryan & Stewie, who's back & forth banter is no more original than Snoopy & Woodstock (& they don't even speak). In this, I can see how you might think this was perhaps inspired by such comedic influences, but in no way do I think this was copied from them. The concept of one serious character trying to be serious & concentrate on the task at hand while being at odds with another character that only comes along to spoil things is by no means a new concept. That reviewer probably just got done watching TV or is trying to compare pieces on NG to actual televised works, which isn't really fair since most regular people have nowhere near the kind of budget or time that big productions have.

I found it worth a few chuckles, perhaps more emphasis could have been put on the voices because they were pretty quiet; understandable if you are trying to avoid pops & static or are in an environment where people don't appreciate noise. All in all I think this was a great effort & I thought you should know that, & there would be at least 1 good review on this page. It could have used some background music as well, & some more animation & less tweening, but the humor provided enough distraction from that.

Hey, at least there wasn't a great big pause in the middle that made people wait, & at least there were voices & I didn't have to read & guess what they sounded like for myself. That is just a chore, like a long un-interactive tutorial for a game. I hate that.

Also I thought the names were cool.

Oh and I also believe the author intended for the laugh's to sound forced; that guy is intentionally being annoying to grind the other guys gears. I gather that maybe the back story is the annoying guy was hitting on him & got rejected so now he's out for revenge!

You get 8/10, but I voted 5!

Carry on.
