Sometimes being black is a good thing!! lol This is my favorite episode so far. I love all the different customers that call the store. So many good quotes from this episode! Okay bye... alright... ok... bye... alright bye.

I didn't enjoy this as much as the third. The humour just didn't appeal to me so much this time around. The storyline felt very slow paced and the lack of animation didn't help matters. Not a lot really seemed to happen. He answered a few calls and that was pretty much it. Could there not have been some story regarding the CCTV set up in his office? I thought that you could have cut to a short scene of Roman and the dog when Sean mentioned it probably being dead as well. The use of one location felt rather boring, so cutting elsewhere for a while would have been an improvement. Much like the second it seemed like this would have served better as an audio clip than a flash movie.

Again, no preloader, play button or replay button. There were some white lines on the edges of the screen during the intro and credits that could do with being removed. The pillars being the only thing with any depth when everything else in the intro is flat still looks odd. Could you not give depth to some of the other objects in the shot such as the sign or add something else?

There were still no diagonals in any of the scenes. Once more you chose to shoot every scene front or side on. You introduced a bird's eye view, but this was still very flat. Again, there was very little animation and a lot of what you did choose to include was very rigid with nothing inbetween. A hand doesn't jump from being unclenched to clenched. You need to animate the movement inbetween so that it reaches there and the movement appears more natural.

The couple of cutaways you had could have been improved. The shot with the raccoon felt a little too short and the ones with the frog and spider were really poorly animated. Why weren't the frog's legs moving? It just slid along the wall, which didn't look at all natural.

The lip syncing seemed to be much better this time around, so I'm pleased to see that improvements are being made in some areas. This is a promising start to improvement, so hopefully I'll begin to see some animation once I get a few more episodes into this series.

This serious is honestly one of the absolute funniest flash series i have ever seen in my life.

SeanAndSuch responds:

Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the kind words... we love new fans. Hope you continue to watch.


The comedy is very clever and well written, and the voice acting is perfectly natural. And it's made even better by the New York accents. "I'm sorry ma'am, but your dog is most likely dead." That line by any other actor would've sucked, but this straight,, dry humor is just brilliant, and believable to boot.

Very good.

I'm giving this a 9 because the art is fantastic, the lip sync is pretty much perfect. but theres hardly any movement in the characters. Either way it's awesome. Good job :D
