    wow, this show is way better than I thought it would be. Telling it through the interrogation has me totally intrigued, and Sam's awful but its totally acknowledged so it doesn't feel like a jerk-off fantasy either. I kind of wanna compare this to ELR; Crunch Time has pulled off the absurd humour way better IMO. It perfectly aligns with the cheesy sci-fi premise, it's cleverly explained because the subconscious is actually weird, visually the show is super cohesive and pretty, and the characters seem real and distinct. Maybe its not a fair comparison, but ELR soured me a little on RT productions, yet Crunch Time seems great so far.

    Sam is a scary, freaky, nice-guy douche. I feel sorry for this poor Hannah. She's going to need so much therapy.

    Well this is where I stop getting RoosterTeeth's First membership. The video streaming is complete shit. I can't get through an episode without the video freezing multiple times throughout. I have to keep refreshing.

    I'm gonna be perfectly honest, I don't think I laughed at all in the first episode aside from one snort. But this second episode actually made me laugh out loud a few times. I was worried that I wasn't going to like this show after the first one, but this episode has definitely given me hope. Good stuff!

    I feel like everyone's being a little too critical of the show early on, its only two episodes deep. This is definitely not my favourite RT production so far but its still interesting, lol I personally could go without the toilet Humour but I understand some people really get a kick out of it. All in all I am hopeful! <3

    I feel like Chapter 1 & 2 should have been one long episode because it sets up what the rest of the show is about, but I dig it!

    I'm torn about this show; and I really am trying to enjoy it. The concept is there (as patchwork as it may be at the moment), the acting is there for the most part (for the main cast) and I find a lot of the stuff funny (I was laughing my ass off at Hannah's first dream!); but some of the silliness just takes me out of it. I'm able to overlook a few things;but if the first real "action" scene was A Latino Santa Claus theoretically killing the main character of the show.it takes you out of it... I like what they were doing from a comedic standpoint for Berkman and I think it makes a lot of sense to add some humor to a show with as many possibilities as this one, but that was just kinda nonsense. I feel like this is a cool series that I could really get behind, but it's being marketed to a very different audience. All they have to do is limit those over the top, ridiculous, and narrative breaking scenes and this show can go from pretty good to great. Regardless, they caught me on the story and I will continue watching. I guess I'd consider this a guilty pleasure kind of show at the moment, but it's still episode 2 so we'll just have to wait and see.

      You do realize what you say is "narrative breaking" is honestly the core of the show. That it doesn't take itself to seriously, because the overall plot, in itself, is ridiculous. If it didn't have that, it'd be the same as every network show that the plot is, in reality, ridiculous, but they dramatize it as if it were this grounded, realistic idea. You'll never find such bland and unoriginal type show on RT and, at least to me, its one of the things that makes RT so awesome

    • Enigmatic_Eagle Commenting Extraordinair

      10 months ago

      I understand that RT isn't for making "serious drama" content, but I don't look at this as an RT production (obviously I know it is). They hired a bunch of actors (I have no idea about who the crew was and their relation to RT, but it appears stylistically different than the rest of their original work) and asked them to fit their style, and that very rarely works. So I choose to consume this like network TV stuff with a splash of the raunchy style from RT. But I'd have to disagree with your "bland" statement; this is the most unique premise for a show I've seen in a long time. I just think they need to cut some of the ridiculous BS. That nightmare was very clearly written to express how anything can happen in a dream, but I think they could have done it in a dozen funnier ways that didn't take me out of it as much as that.


      But it's always nice to hear another opinion, and I thank you for it :)

    Honestly I love the show but it kinda doesn't make sense to make us wonder if a character died or not when we already saw that they were telling their side of the story. There's no suspense to it at all because you already know they're not actually dead.

      But you don't know if he's even dead. That's quite the assumption to make on the second episode...

    • dwrek99 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Unless i'm mistaken, they're explaining what happened up until they got caught by the FBI or whatever. Therefore, there's no real threat of them dying until they get up to that point.

    So the two episodes and I enjoyed them very much. The show is completely different than I thought it would be. Very humorous and at the same time exciting. Loved it.
