Wow! Look at those graphics. If there's one thing you know how to do, it's push Flash to it's limits. All these people making shitty TV Flash toons could learn alot from you. Everything about it visually was really strong, great colors, great backdrops. But other than that, it didn't really do anything for me. This flick just has nothing I usually enjoy about your work. The comedy really fell flat because it had... jokes. Jokes aren't something you do well; usually just letting the horrible, demented things loose from your imagination is enough to make your cartoons entertaining. I wanted to assume that the sloppy way you handled the comedy in this one was intentional to reflect the way comedy was handled in a lot of 80's stuff, but if that was the case, it didn't work... It didn't feel like a perfectly tuned spoof of 80's entertainment like Bo-Starr, it felt like "Seth McFarlane presents a Happy Harry Cartoon." Here's to hoping the next one's different.

As usual, your animation is some of the best out there. However, I just thought this flash felt a bit "empty." I never was that big of a fan of the Starbarians, though I thought they managed well enough as a one hit wonder. Now that your making an actual series, I feel I must question your judgement. Like I said before, everything art wise was nearly perfect; it's everything else that felt a bit lacking. The story is just a "excessive violence, boobs, and manliness" type of story, nothing all that special there. The characters are the same, empty parodies without much of a personality. Same with the setting, just one big sci-fantasy action parody filled with 80s cheese. Even the jokes suffered, they were just so predictable and bland. If not for the animation, I would not have enjoyed this as much as I did. Everything just felt generic and uninspired. This probably stems from taking what should have been a one note, silly type of cartoon you usually do and turning it into an entire series. It's like taking the Saturday Morning Watchmen toon or Avatar: Hot Na'vi Sex into a series. The joke that spawned them gets old real quick and there's not much to pick up the slack. Now I respect your decision to continue with this series, but I think it would be much more practical if you continued to do what you did before.

Is anyone else having issues with the video playing really glitchy? Just me then?
