SO not a real episode but a sort of "minisode" to bridge the gap between episode 1 and 2. I started episode 2 in August last year and it's already two thirds made (it's much longer than Episode 1) but it will be a while yet until I git 'er dun!

Excellent in both animation quality and humor.

not easy to write a negative review for something that has taken a lot of effort. Well, actually it is, just not fun to say why I like your The animation was great. probably the best to be found on Newgrounds. Same with the voice acting. But the I know a lot of cartoon characters are one-trick ponies, but ever since you did the preview clip, it seems like you really figure out what to do with them. The first time around, it was a good enough joke: oversexed violent mercenaries who, in doing right, do wrong. And then do more wrong. Characters like that should either be a one-off, or you have to give them more time to let their misadventures play out. Like a plot. With humor that pushes boundaries and buttons. And what work about this flash one bit. a recycled joke that feels like it came from a 1990s Space Ghost Coast to Coast program. The creativity and whimsy of your work circa 2009-2010 is flat-out missing. Something good can be done with these characters. What is needed is a good writer who can flesh out the humor and the situation. This flash seems DOA, like something that was done to pass the time moreso than develop Starbarians as a viable concept.

HappyHarry responds:

I read this through and generally agree with your sentiment but in defense of the cartoon, I'd like to remind you that credits aside, this thing is barely 1 minute long. I don't think that's adequate time to set up sympathetic characters, have jokes, a story and have a satisfying resolution.

I started Episode 2 in August and it has a far better grasp of who the characters are and gives the audience a reason to care while still taking clever turns. Unfortunately it's nearly 10 minutes long and won't be finished for a while yet so I hope that people like yourself will come back and give it a chance. Then from there, I hope Episode 3 will be be better still and so on.

Maybe you've passed final judgement on this series already but I understand its shortcomings better than it may appear, and things will improve.
