In a world where sex and violence are everywhere, there’s a strong demand for family programming with Canadian content. Finishing Moves is a Family Comedy set in the suburbs of Vancouver, BC.Fave 69 Views 293
This needs to be in the Top 15. Kudos. I hope I see it there.
I will not be voting for these guys project because I think How To Do Everything Gooder is the best show CBC could choose to air!
Great job on the hype and further explaining your show. I really like it and think it will be a hit with the young demographic. Looking forward to seeing more of you guys. Good luck in making top 15
You are very very right. There is a lot of place for a family show. So if not from here then moving forward with the project anyways. You are inspiring young people and everyone. So for that you all rock. No matter what!
Great job on what you guys did so far. There are a lot of great projects in this contest and you guys are one of many that stands out. Hoping to see you guys get through the next round.
Great Work! Funny concept and definitely lots of potential! Keep up the great work:) Very Creative!
Way to go on your comedy coup efforts to date. You have succeeded in making it to the top 55 and that is something to be proud of. Already the competition is getting tough as the quality of the competitors gets refined. Best wishes for making it to the next level.
Nice, a wrestling show. Love wrestling. Nice beginning, got some points across but it would be nice to see some elaboration. Felt like it could have been file up just a little more
Interesting that this is a family show! Congrats on making the top 55 and good luck in the rest of the voting. Wishing you the best in the competition, your good friend Sharon.
Yeah, the wrestler is totally believable! And funny! You guys are doing great, I really hope you keep up the good work and can't wait to see your week 6 Flip it Mission!
I'm happy to see a project that's putting a focus on being family rated. It's definetly an overlooked area in the entries thus far. The wrestler is believable with the look and sound of the grrrrrr. hehehe. Sure hope that you will rise to the top group of entries, so best of luck to you and your Finishing Moves.
Amazing work. super funny stuff and I truly believe you guys will be top 15 with some other great teams. All the hardwork and dedication this team have presented is extremely outstanding.
First time I've checked you out and I must say I like what you're trying to do here. The kids input could be great as well as good experience for them. I hope the entries with the teams and machines behind them don't dominate and push out deserving entries like yours. Good luck
There is definitely a place for your show on TV, I'm not a big fan but it has an audience. Good luck on getting into the top 15
I have to hand it to the people who put this competition together. In a million years I never would have checked this out on my own account, but they make it a game with points and voting and all that. Suddenly in checking out videos like this and quite enjoying them. I hope I see this able in the top 15. Way to go so far. I hope you do well.
This is definitely a different approach than a lot of the series on here, and I think there is certainly room for it on TV. This video did a great job of explaining your vision and delivering some laughs, good work.
Well the final hours of the vote to get to the next level are approaching now so it is up to the voters now to get you there. Best wishes to you for success and nice work on getting through to the top 55 for all those able who were able to get that far.
Huge fan of wrestling and this is right up my alley. Great good ol family style com, i think it would do great things on air
A comedy show about wrestling! About time really. I always thought wrestling was hilarious! I think the most interesting project so far Good luck guys!
Lots of heart and great to see how you're working together. This competition isn't easy but congrats on getting this far, and good luck for the top 15!
The cut-offs are kinda strange - but overall, a great idea.
I don't like wrestling but I do like family!! This show has heart! You guys should go all the way to the end, and if somehow you don't (I doubt it!!) you should keep it up!!
This show has great comedy potential; I really like the new spin you are putting on established TV tropes and am looking forward to what more you can come up with!
The contrast of a big tough guy, having made his career in a violent (however fake) arena and a calm, suburban environment intrigues me.
fun concept. good job with your mission
I've never really been a big fan of wrestling, but you're winning me over. Slowly but surely, you're winning me over, guys! Keep up the good work, even if you don't make it to the Top 15!
I will give you all my votes if you can promise me at least one Rock Bottom per episode. Good luck in the contest.
Really admirable concept, you guys! Kudos on focusing on clean programming. I do think you could have crammed more jokes into this week's video, but the dance medals line really did kill me! Funny stuff. A solid job this week.
i really like the family friendly feel. i know that a lot of people have already commented on that but i think its something that needs to be mentioned. a lotta these videos are so vulgar, but you guys offer something that is funny and fresh yet still clean, and thats not something thats easy to pull off
I am still a big fan of the family focus. It's unique and it's going to help you out in the long run! Hope to see you in the top 15!
Good job on this week's challenge. Good luck in the remainder of the competition. You have a funny concept here and hope you make it through the next round! Cheers!
this isn't my taste either unfortunately. I don't feel like it will appeal to many females out there but maybe that's not your target demographic anyway. Either way it's not a character I'd continue to watch. Good luck though
I'm not interested in this, it has a good heart and i really like the idea behind it but it seems like a bad tv show idea like an ABC comedy that would get cancelled like "Money dad: not every dad is made of money but this dad is LITERALLY made of money, money dad: coming to abc this fall" it seems gimicky. But I really do wish you the best of luck and it's an interesting idea and i am sure some people would watch it. just not me.
This a pretty good concept executed in an interesting way. I am hoping to see more of this going forward and I am looking forward to seeing how this develops. Good luck from here on in the Comedy Coup competition.
hahahahahahahahaha that groan at the end of the video sounded chewbacca hahahaha I liked your sell sheet, it was easy to read, and your concept has real potential, all the best in making it to the top 15!!!
I like the idea of clean family programming so I hope your project advances. I can do without the screaming but otherwise I like your idea. I was engaged with the characters too!!!
Love the relationships, characters and comedy. Actors performances make it easy to engage and make me thirsty for more. Congrats.
Thanks for the kind words Lauren! Cheers!
Good hype it, this will be a great after school show for kids. Reminds me of Uncle Buck and you are already a very loveable character. Well done and all the best in the competition
This show really knows how to BRING THE PAIN. The fish out of water concept comes through here. Looking forward to what's coming next.
That's a doozy! The Annihilator loses against The Undertaker every time. One day... One day...
love the concept. i have never seen a character like this on tv and so it immediately has my attention. i also, like some of the other people have said, really like that youre doing it family friendly. great work!
Thanks for the kind note, Rob
cool video but it might be slightly violent. Its fun to watch for sure and quite honestly i didnt see this quality from previous videos. You guys turned things around and Im impress that you're top 55. Good job!
i really like what you guys are doing here. its certainly a new direction and there arent really any other projects in this competition like yours. i like that youre going in a family friendly direction. its hard to be clean and funny but if youre really good you can do it. and you, are very good.
The event you held to advertise this show should have been...no wait, should have ONLY been an amateur wrestling competition. The other West Coast shows should have each entered a theme wrestler and then the teams who leave the most bloodied and beaten should have been made to concede there Comedy Coup spot. Violence is great.
Totally agree on your view of comedy and how there should be options for family viewing. That sold me 100% within the first second. A very important and possible idea. Love the inclusion of younger people to create. This show has more to it than laughs.
"Are those my dance medals" ha ha. It's great to see a strong female teen lead. It would be nice to see her joining in on the conversations. Looks like she has some fans. Girl power!
I agree with the other comments there is always room for good family programming. Anna definitely steals the show. I think this young lady has a future in comedy!
Thank you Steve. We think she does too :)
congratulations on making it to the top 55! I really enjoy the interaction between the characters - I hope you keep it up and I'll see you in the top 15!
Great family concept. Anna's a doll! Good luck making it to the top 15.
This needs to be in the Top 15. Kudos. I hope I see it there.
Thanks Leonard. We hope so too. There's always room for one kid's show out of 15, no?
You have some potential for this concept and the biggest thing going for you are the kids. Good acting with some funny parts mixed in but would like to see more. Hope you can make it forward and you never know what can happen.
I can admit that I have been looking for a project the whole family can fall in love with. There's a lot of crap out there with pointless swearing, vulgarity, and, for some reason, a whole lot of weed. Thanks for being honest about it, I think the raunchy comedy is seriously getting stale, but a project like yours can show that people can laugh together without making half of them feel squeamish. And love the family dynamic between the uncle and kids.
Congratulations on finishing the video for this week and good luck in all your missions in the future.
Interesting concept with the kids being in the spotlight. Like the interaction and the acting. Anna steals the show. Hope you make it to the next round and I'll be keeping an eye out for you.
I like the premise and especially the sentiment behind your entry -- TV the whole family can enjoy without all the violence. Odd that would come in form of a former wrestler, but that adds to the charm. Kudos for giving the kids a creative outlet. Best of luck.
The girl is definitely a good actress! But the guy? Not so much! I'd definitely give the show a try. And I like the idea of letting teen writers write some of the episodes. It's just that I don't really buy the guy's wrestling voice. It sounded like his voice was cracking. And I just didn't buy the whole, him being a wrestler, thing. But at least the actress is good! So you've got that goin' for ya!
Good luck. You have worked very hard and comedy coup has a big debt to pay to all the teams that participated.
That wasn't my favourite of all your material so far, but I still like where you are going with your concept and I can see that your team does have potential. Good luck in this competition, it would be great to see some more clean family programming on TV.
That is great, involving the whole family. You have a great idea for this show, the characters are great, like the acting too. You are honest and sincere in what you want to bring forth. We are behind you!
If you've got a good concept, depth of characters, unlimited potential for interesting story lines that make me laugh hysterically, then I hope you will continue onto the next level. Best of luck to you!
I love the family value within this series! Great idea to let kids join in and help out, it really inspires young writers to get involved
Great idea you have here, it's good and renewable, funny I didn't notice a lot of these project earlier but now I can see why they (and you) made it. glad to see someone going with a family route.
Your aim is admirable and the work looks well-polished. let us hope that the rest of the country agrees and that you get a chance to show us more. Good luck in the next round!
I'm impressed. Somehow I missed you in the earlier weeks. I definitely think there's room for more family-friendly programming on TV. Good luck!
There can never be too many good family shows. I did have a difficult time hearing what was said at the beginning; but maybe that is just how wrestlers talk. I think this could turn out to be really funny and enjoyable. Good luck on top 15!
How refreshing! No sex or violence and giving kids a chance to get involved. The dance medals joke had me laughing out loud. Keep up the good work and I will be watching next week when you are in the top 15!
I like bearded guys on TV. I also like wrestlers. It would be nice to see a bit more color in the thumbnails to draw people into the page. Either way, congrats on making it into the top 55 and good luck with working your way into the top 15! Kick some ass!
Wrestling and family comedy? Together? At the same time? Is this a dream come true or am I still in that coma?
good job on this weeks challenge. Congratulations on making it this far and I look forward to seeing more. keep on going!
Made me laugh for sure like your top comment said. Its nice to see that your working some youth into the project and I love the old wrestling mentally about the show. If its done well could be very entertaining for the right population. Still needs some work to make it really shine, But with a week per mission I would say you guys are doing a good job. Keep it up.
the wrestling parts are pretty funny and this weeks challenge was pretty well done. this type of show is not my cup of tea. I would like something with a bit more edge.
I love wrestling. Sometimes I wrestle with my inner emotions. Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!!
"are those my dance medals?" absolute comedy gold. Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!!
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good lucking on making it to the Top 15!! I really hope that we get to see where this goes!
Your project does look like a nice Family Show, kind of reminds me of Uncle Buck, which is a very good thing. It is also great to have the kids involved creatively opposed sitcoms of the 70's.
"Are those my Dance Medals?" LMAO
"This one caught my eye out of pure chance and I am super happy that it did! Loved the effort you guys are putting into this! The writing is nice and I can't wait to see what unfolds in the voting process."
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!! Can't really go wrong with a premise like this!!
this premise is very wholesome which is refreshing. In my taste I would like to see something a little more edgy for cbc and I am not sure I would tune in every week for something like this.
well good family comedy has been lost so its nice to see someone try and make a comeback with it. Kind of leave it to beaver meets family guy but with clean lines. Nice concept good luck.
Guys, I really dig this premise. It's refreshing to see a vid without a dick joke.
As somebody who has now been to TWO yes TWO wrestling events in her life I can happily say that I am totally a fan of wrestling now and this show concept is hilarious! Great video, informative and fun, just like the challenge was given. Great work! Good luck on the Top 15 voting period guys!
Blow all your votes on Finishing Moves! ;)
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!! this is really smart and really hilarious!!
You are right there is a need for family programming Too much reality, slapstick, violent, sex driven shows So keep it coming & Goidelic luck to you
Congratulations on making it to the top 55. It will be interesting to see if a show of this nature can be successful in this type of contest. Good luck on making the top 15.
Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!! Wresting shows were definitely part of my childhood growing up so I think the spoof and comedy about wresting that this show brings is super hilarious! Well done :)
Going forward my votes will go to storyline, substance and ability to deliver a sustainable, CBC suitable, comedy series. Curious to see if you can deliver that.
Hi Mary, Thanks for your kind words. We've written story lines for Season 1. They're in The Bible. Too bad producers only get to see that. But consider it a Drake and Josh comedy.
I love how this is a family piece and the dance metals were pretty smart. I love the use of the green screen, that was pretty funny. Good luck on getting into the top 15! And congrats on making it this far.
Congratulations on making it into the Top 55! It's nice to see some clean, family comedy! Keep it up guys! Good luck in the next round of voting!
Reminds me a little of Dog THe Bounty Hunter. ROCK ON! FINISH HIM! Congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and I good lucking on making it to the Top 15!!
I am curious as to why you have the wrestling angle? Did the Amish Annihilator ever step into the squared circle,? Is he still wrestling or does have a different job now?
I think you are on to something with a clean family friendly show. Congrats on top 55 and best of luck to you this week for top 15!
Love the hype video! Well done!! "Are these my dance medals..." Awesome!!
Love that you've geared your show to family watching. Kids like funny, too.
I don't like wrestling but well done hype video. If you make it to the Top 15 I would like to see more videos that clarify the idea even more
We've had a lot of talk about wrestling from our audience. Truth be told, there's as much wrestling in this show as there was baseball in the show Cheers. Sorry wrestling fans, there's not much wrestling. We've mapped out the whole first season. Sometimes we cut to his rants and his buddies come over every now and then, but that's it. The Annihilator is retired. :(
good job! I think your wholesome family angle will appeal to a lot of viewers. I like how your video showcased what the shows goals are and where you can go with it.
I like this video because of the Macho Man Randy Savage reference. That man was the bomb and this video was entertaining.
I can't say I was ever a fan of wrestling per se, but you guys have definitely made the world of wrestling (and post-wrestling) more interesting than it is, so kudos for that! Keep up the good work!
Family friendly comedy is soooo under rated. I would love to see a quality, Canadian comedy that was okay for all ages to watch. I agree the sex and violence is over done on television.
Nicely done video. I think it would be great to have a new family comedy on TV. I hope to see more of your concept in the future as I think there is always room for clean family programing.
Just watched again. Entertaining work and covered a lot to keep us watching. Very nice job. Best of luck in moving forward. Interesting topic
Hey there. Good job on this week's video. You explained your concept well. I wasn't completely sold on this video on the comedy aspect, until the end. The end was hilarious with the teenager consoling the Annihilator. Good luck next week.
Nicely done! Loved the "wrestling" response :))) yes, some people are obsessed :)) I might be one of'em, but on the family regards, that's why I love your show - all ages and good humour and all protagonists are working hard on their acting skills, which I soo appreciate! You grow up with your show and this will take you further to Top 15!
Have a great and productive week and also have a great and rewarding Saturday party! Wish I was there, but I'll be anyway in sending positive vibes and veeery fond thoughts!
See you in Top 15!
I think it is cool that you are pushing the family programming angle. Shows do not have to be violent or inappropriate in order to be funny. Good luck for top fifteen!
Guys, you've got a lot of positive reviews this week for a reason. I really like the direction you are going with this. I totally get it. I would not be surprised to see you in the Top15. Good Job.
Great way to start your HYPE video, WRESTLING and it was funny too, got me more interested in hearing what you had to say about your concept, good job. Great ending scene as well. Hope ya's have a great Co-HYPE party Sat night
Good work on the hype it mission. sometimes I feel like it's just the projects commenting on the projects and there is no audience here. But from one project to another: Good job.
great job on the show, you guys are very funny and I congratulate you for getting in the top 55, good job, you guys deserve it, and good luck.
I think your strongest aspect of the show is the fact that you're selling it as a family show. Not a lot of people have access to child actors and I think you should run full speed with it. I for one, am not up-to-date with any of the family programming of today, so I assume that you know what's on today in order to keep your idea fresh! I feel like you could have spent more time developing the concept rather than doing that last bit, but I'm excited to see where you guys go with this!
I agree that there is room for family programming. This reminds me of an old show about a wrestlers who was a school teacher. Hanging the Ropes I think it is called? Good luck and I like the fact you are giving teen writers an opportunity.
I really like the fact that you have incorporated kids into your show. I believe that it really makes your show unique and separates you from the rest of the pack. There is room for a family friendly show on the CBC and I think this show has the strength to fill that slot! Congratulations on making the top 55 and good luck making the top 15!!!
I'll be honest, the acting needs a bit of work. I like the premise -- I think the marketing slant of a 'family comedy' is a strange one, I pictured this being more like a cheesy 90s wrestling throwback, I don't think the two are incompatible but just seems strange to pitch your show as family comedy.
I am with you guys - keep up the good work! This week's video was funny and informative. Loved the last bit too!
you guys are very likeable, good job.
"Are those my dance medals?" lol Well done 'Finishing Moves' crew, rated you (definitely NOT a 1!) and am now following! Best of luck!
I thought your video explained your concept quite well to the media. The joke at the end about not really liking the kids was great too. As for all the '1-2' ratings, I wouldn't worry too much, everyone seems to get those (I know you aren't really worrying, but I'm just saying anyways). I'd say the worst ratings are when it is a 1 or 2 and all it says is something like 'dumb' or 'lame' and doesn't explain anything at all. Anyways, I think you guys are also really smart about your event in teaming up with other groups. Sounds like a fun night.
Thanks for your kind words Christina! We're having lots of fun! I hope u live close enough to join us at the media shaker!
That was great! I liked your video. I love family viewing, no sex, no violence. you made me laugh too. I would say that I did not understand all the words said by the 'wrestler'. Maybe because he was acting a 'wrestler' and sometimes it's hard to understand them. Maybe I'm just going deaf!
There is for sure a place for Family Friendly Comedy in Canada. Keep it up and keep pushing the concept. Good stuff!
Trust me I know! Those ones are killer! I like what you guys are doing and I agree there is room for family friendly comedy:) There isn't enough of that in the comedy coup archives. Keep it up, keep playing, and have fun ya'll!
Lol. Poor Anna.
