Check out this fast paced, gut smashing reason to cover the GOONS!!!! Bam!!Fave 56 Views 627
You guys are crushing this! I love the shots of complex fight shit!! As far as I am concerned you are the project to beat!
How did Goons do?
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!
Nice, guys! Well choreographed and nicely timed physical humour in this. You also explained the premise for the press fairly well and had some endearing jokes.
Great Work! Funny concept and definitely lots of potential! Keep up the great work:) Very Creative!
Cool fight scenes! Dig this project, wishing you dudes the best and fingers crossed you make it to the top 15!
Every episode just makes it look more and more appealing, and since it already started out looking great, that's a good thing.
I'm definitely loving this and the effects! Great work goons!
This was a funny video with some great effects! Congratulations on making the top fifty five and good luck on the next step! Nice pipes! Way to go team goons! All the best to you guys tomorrow! Whooohooooo!
Neat stunts and special effects. I'm not sure if I can fully buy into the violence. You guys are riding the edge though and for comedy, that is important.
I'm not one for senseless violence - but having watched some of the vids - you have a funny concept. Like the editing in your week 5 vid - good luck in reaching top 15.
I like the potential of the concept but I'm still not sure I fully understand it enough to see a series that will maintain my interest. I'm looking forward to seeing more as you flesh things out a bit. Good luck.
I think goons has so much potential and I can't wait to see where this series goes! Keep up the great work guys, we're rooting for you and we'll see you in the top 15!
Funny and different. I'm sure you'll be in quite a few peoples top 15. Good luck if you make it to the next round!
This is different. The action hero film type schtick is working and it is funny. I don't really like action hero movies but I might still like this because it makes fun of the genre. I will have to see more!
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.
Goons is always a good title for anything! Interesting idea. Should have a lot material for some great episodes Keep up the great work!
Congratulations guys for making it to top 55.Very interesting video .Keep up the good work and good luck in top 15 Way to go Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!
Action comedy! I like the fast paced stuff. look out for the milk lol
If you are receiving this comment then you are one of my top 15 favorites in this comedycoup.cbc.ca contest and you are congratulated for making the top 55 and doing a really good job on all the missions to date. That has been a lot of work so congratulations on your efforts!
I want to learn this kind of style! Teach me. Mission accomplished. It's simple. the ladies are extra alluring dudes! hope the videos keep coming
Thanks will. We learned our fight skills through Fight Directors Canada. That's a good place to start. Then just get funny! Thats a recipe for goons :-)
I will definitely check out your other videos... so far I like the hype video! You guys are awesome! and tough hahaha hope you make it to the top 15!
My top 15 in no particular order are:
Geoff and the Ninja, The Hill, How to do Everything Gooder, The Lease, Warf Rats, Dear Stella, Goons, Dope Ass World, North of Normal, Just passing through, The Batchelors, Buddy guys, The Dangers of Online Dating, Nanny Walbourne, Heir Heads.
this was really well done the sell sheet looks very eye catching and appealing and your acting is really great. lots of funny lines but most importantly it really shows what the show is gonna be about. great work team i really enjoyed it.
Nice job with the "hype" video guys. You kept it light and funny, but I still understood that there was a sense of urgency, that this project needs our support. Fun, effective delivery. Best of luck!
Thanks so much, wally! Thats exactly what we were trying to achieve so I'm glad it came through! :-)
Loved the editing for this mission guys! Quick and fun! I was entertained throughout the whole video. I haven't watched all your videos but I hope you keep this style.
Really love seeing the Goons in their element. So many places the scenario can lead the plot points and can't wait to see more from this team.
funny - try to keep a level above the lowlife Trailer Park Boys
Malcolm, I work with your sister at Red Robins! She's a beaut. Anyways, thoroughly enjoyed the video. Lots of great bits throughout, and the stunts looks awesome as always. Love, Bruce from Heir Heads.
Hahahaha great bit with the stereotypical action editing of mundane stuff. And that fight choreography!! You guys obviously know hat you're doing and have a lot of potential. There's certainly room in the world of comedy for some more action flick parody. Thumbs up.
I like the way you kept up with the Goons while sharing your own story...and the characters. Nice all round, and of course the final touch of the "couch gag" just fits in so well. Well done!
Hey guys, I love the concept, but the audio is a bit harsh. I think you can tone the sound effect down a notch and it will be more effective.
Thanks for the constructive feedback! :)
I was laughing the whole time.. great job on the video. Congrats on making it through and good luck Goon Fellas
You guys look like you are having a blast making this stuff. It really comes through in the production, and that's a good thing. Keep doing what you've been doing.
What's the point of making a TV if the process isn't gonna be fun, right? We believe in being fun to work with and working with other fun/cool/interesting/passionate people; at the end of the day that will always create the best product.
This one seems pretty good. i liked the acting and you had some nice camera work and you got a few smiles here. I like the fact that the goons have some realism to their humor. Good luck.
Thanks, Steve! You don't seem totally sold though... What kind of things would you add to Goons to take it that extra mile?
Seems like an cool show but I can tell you' re persistent. Dont know if it'll hit that big of a target market though. Still wish you the best.
It's a tricky business this, isn't it? We want to please people but we also can't afford to dilute our concept and sense of humor in order to accommodate everyone; that's a sure-fire recipe for crappy television. Gotta walk that razor's edge!!
I like the humor here, especially with the one goon who isn't good at gooning. That fight looked great. Good mix of action and comedy. I like it. Best of luck.
i think you guys always have great concepts. They are fun, they make me laugh, but i'm concerned about you getting into the top 5 because there's no way CBC is going to let you keep your team. I would like to see you guys play with story. You are great at hyping an idea but what is missing for me is sustenance. Pun intended. Good luck guys.
We'll see about that... it's pretty hard to split up the goons. Thanks for the well wishes, though :)
i would eat a million goons with a billion rusty spoons! :D
The fast action and slap stick comedy approach seems to have worked for you so far. Congratulations on making it to the top 55. Will watch what happens next as the competition is getting tougher. The title Goons seems to be the bad guys.
Love the action comedy. I'm sure it's difficult to shoot, but what a great payoff. Nice work fellas. Royal - Littleton Falls Settler Village.
Thanks Royal! :-)
There aren't many action-comedies left in this competition, so congratulations on making it to the top 55! I hope to see you in the top 15!
Thanks Orlando! We think Canadian TV could use a little action :-)
That was a pretty good video guys, the concept is hilarious and I do respect the physical aspect of the comedy. Good luck with the top 15
I really like the police report sell sheet - the coffee ring is an especially nice touch! Nice physical comedy too =)
Here are my picks for the top 15, no particular order:
Just Passing Through
Grahm Clark: Wilderness Man
Roll for Damage
Toronto After Dark
Dope Ass World
Glad we made the list :-) thanks for the support!
Boys Boys Boyring!
Good luck in the contest. The video is well done. It’s getting to be a tight contest. I wish you all the best. What’s next if you don’t make the cut? You should check out your local film festival.
We're definitely not done with goons. One way or the other.
Goon #2 really likes his cereal hey? is that a regular thing for goons to be into? Love the idea behind this show boys. Keep up the good work. Good luck in the vote this weekend!
I like how each character has such a unique personality. Good job with the video this week. I had the impression the goons were going to be pretty hardcore at the start of your videos and now at this stage it appears they are more goofy and not as actually hardcore which is a different direction than I thought the show was going. Best of luck tho with top 15.
I'm really enjoying that although these goons are nameless, they all have distinct personalities and fighting styles that are teased more and more with each video. It's letting me get to know the characters and the show a little better - but mostly keeps me wanting more! Keep up the great work!
Watched all the videos over the last couple minutes! I want you guys to get this such an awesome idea for a show
I thought I'd be tired of the violence by now, but I'm not. Your scenes are entertaining. I take pleasure in your humor. Your concept is an charming one which would appeal to many. Keep up the good work and I wish you well making it to the next level.
Good concept, it's got great potential, I hope you do well and get further in the contest as I would enjoy seeing more of it.
getting better and better….go Goons go:)
I really liked your sell sheet this week very eye catching and did the job well. This week your video was pretty funny however, not as much as the last ones. Best of luck to you and your team with the top 15!
You have good chemistry! I'm curious to know how your characters will develop. Will there be any strong female characters in your story? Not too keen on gun violence - hope you find a way to present violence differently. Best of luck!
Nice work guys - your submissions are always good but this was a good blend of explaining what you're trying to do and actually doing it. Keep up the good work and best of luck this weekend. Joe (Fruit Farm)
I'm loving GOONS!!!!
Funny fight scene and a show idea that I haven't seen before on TV (I don't think). Reminds me of the podcast Film Riot and their skits... action and comedy rolled into one.
Yes, good physical acting, some better than others but congratulations on making it to the top 55. Not too keen on the gun scene - wish you all the best on the upcoming vote, you clearly have humour to share.
Can't wait to see next weeks video! You guys are funny, and are clearly putting in the time as that sell sheet looks amazing!
I also love how you keep just throwing in the cereal. No explanation required. Pure goony humour. 10/10
I'm still not sure what the plot to this series is yet, but you guys have are great physical performers and have amazing comedic timing. I also really like the art you guys have for this series. Though, I do have to admit, the art in the earlier title cards is better than the stuff you had on the poster challenge.
I agree with justine c on that you guys have good chemistry. I think you guys have put a of effort into this and am looking forward to whats next.
C'mon guys! Top 15!
you guys have a lot of chemistry in front of the screen together and you look like you have a lot of fun doing this. This type of comedy just isn't my thing but either way your doing a good job.
Very curious to see what you guys put together for the next mission. I sincerely hope that your "fresh" take on the concept drops the violence altogether.
Nicely executed. I wish you could have told me more of a storyline in the video though. There's a lot of directions this show can take and I'm interested in seeing where it will go. Keep up the good work :)
Congratulations on making it to the top 55. Your hype video was good. So was your sell sheet. Good luck on making it to the top 15. You have a decent chance I think.
this was pretty good. It wasn't my favourite video so far but it did give some good content and what you guys are hoping to accomplish. This show isn't really my thing I am not into this kind of humour but good luck.
Appreciate the effort, saw two kinds of humour in the top 55, what I like and what I don’t. I hope I will see less silly and no beeps from the top 15.
I love Goons because it's so completely different from anything else on Canadian television. It's physical humour for a change. The hype video underscores that. Guys, if you don't win Comedy Coup I really hope someone else has the vision to pick this up!
I thought a lot of your concept really came together in this video. Lots of energetic editing, choreography, and sound effects.
I'd like to see these characters pushed a little further to make them distinct. Specifically, in the dialogue. Sometimes they all sound like the same bro.
Thanks for the feedback!... sometimes the character's differences might seem obvious to us but maybe not to the viewer. We'll definitely keep that in mind :)
This particular video was intended to present the creators in costume, but not in character. Did you find this problem in the other videos as well?
Very Very well done. I love the week 5 video. I can't wait to see more. Excellent premise. The editing of this video was perfect! Very funny. A good look into who the goons are. This was a good build on your previous videos. Keep it up.
You keep it coming, it looks great, you are great comic actors, if this doesn't work make a movie!
Great idea! No matter what happens we have no plans to give up on the Goons. Thanks for the comment and the support :)
Great video with fantastic choreography. Great work, guys! Congratulations on making the Comedycoup tiop 55 and best of luck for the top 15.
Thanks, Mike! We really appreciate the support! Keep spreading the Goon Word :)
I like this one very original. I like the fact you are new and just starting out. That is what this competition should be about. Giving new talent a chance. Good luck and congrats on you making top 55.
Thanks, Kelly! We really appreciate the vote of confidence.
Just had time to view your sell sheet, images and layout look great , nice job!!
Thanks, Sheldon :)
So good! I think this is my favourite video yet. Some great camera shots, super funny, and good content! Good luck for top 15, you get my votes for sure :)
Great job guys! Both your video and sell sheet give me a clear understanding of what your show is about. Keep up the good work!
Thanks, Tammy! :)
Ooooohhh how I love you goons! Great video boys - so handsome and tough and funny and stuff <3 Of course crossing my fingers for you idiots!
Good video it was a lot of fun watching it and some great visual gags as well. The concept of Goons is really great and can go on with a lot possibilities. Hope you guys make it to the top 15
Thanks, Paul! :) We really appreciate the support. And yeah we feel that the concept can go pretty far, any situation, any problem. Maybe throw in some romance in Season 2? And how about cross over episodes with other shows? The heroes from Supernatural show up and kick our butts :P
Great Job Goons! Loving the design of your sell sheet. Looking forward to seeing more from you guys. Good luck in the Top 15!
Seriously, you boys make me laugh! Your title is catchy, your leads have great camera presence, and I thought this was a quick paced pitch. I like how you added a variety of screen shots, your characters stayed true to who they are, and I couldn't guess what or where you were going next. Stay edgy, not cliché. Well done boys, and good luck on reaching the top 15!!
Thanks, Sadie! We've worked really hard to stay TV appropriate and yet maintain the edgy element. We think CBC is looking for something different and fresh.
Nice. You're clearly on top of things, and this is a good quality video given the confines of the contest. I might invest in some sound gear next time, but well put together video, and it's good to see teams still being creative.
Gooo Top 15!!!
I've been with you guys from the very beginning! I'll admit now: I'm not a fan of violence (stole all the fists in town as a young fella and almost remember each one of it...especially the ones from girls :D ) but your show got me and your acting skills and your fighting expertize and the humour that comes so easy in you (it looks easy, I know it's not - lot's of work, but making it look easy, natural, is the thing I love in this show!!!) and the flow of each video, things come together and, even after more than one view it still makes me lol and rotfl (no bruises after the rotfl, I guess I learned from the best - you, fine people!!!)
So, yes, great presentation, you've acomplished each point of this week's mission, so dynamic and so funny and so enjoyable. You made me wish I still lived in Vancouver, just to be able to attend your event - plus: it's charity, too! Yes, awesome work - TOP 15 awaits for you!
Aw, Bogdan you always got our backs! Thanks for the wicked comment ;)
Thanks so much for the support Bogdan!! Can't wait to show you more!
Toilet humor to start hmmm. Really like the effects in the gym scene cool. Great facial expressions in the last couch scene. Let's see, action, comedy and answers the question of the week. Homerun.
Throughly enjoy these guys. Comedy is always on point. I still love the idea of "Goons" ever since the beginning. Let's help them get to Top 15.
That was AWESOME, funny and action packed, will watch it again, sure I missed some stuff from laughing. Did a great job again with the edits and cut scenes. Looking forward to more, much more. Good luck and hope ya's had a great turn out last night at your HYPE event
Glad your event was a success
Thanks Sheldon! Yeah the event was a total success. So fun and pulled off a live bar brawl :-)
Love the ending!
Awesome video. I found it very creative, funny and informative. I'm a little curious what's with the cereal and Cam, he's been seen with cereal a couple times now, is that some sort of inside joke? Also have fun at this weeks event, I think it's great your teaming up with another group to take on the challenge.
Hahaha I really enjoy all your videos and I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with next. I really appreciate the physical comedy and that seems to be what separates you from the rest of the pack! Congratulations on making the top 55 and I expect to see you in the top 15. You'll get my votes!!!
Great job. I am happy to support this project. Good luck making it to the next round. #HypeIt #ComedyCoupHype #BeHyperactive #100Characters
Will someone get this guy a new record, still skipping and by that i mean you keep repeating yourself on everyone`s comment page
well done on this weeks challenge. It was a little more serious and that was good. It gave us all the info we needed and showed everyone what your goals are for the coming weeks.
Love the little smoke puffs and the couch scene. I love it when teams can answer the mission but still be hilarious. I should really stop watching these videos at work, my coworkers will start thinking I'm crazy, laughing to myself in my cubicle... and love the coffee cup stain on the sell sheet. :)
Still my favourite show and still demonstrating great physical humour (the coat was the best!)! Your Hype It mission made me laugh out loud. Keep up the writing and promotional energy – you are definitely earning your way into the final rounds!
Had to work so missed your guy's fundraiser but im glad I didn't miss this. Very funny.
Team Eligible Bachelors
Nice work, Goons! Always a good time watching your guys' videos. Definitely got me hyped for your project! Keep up the good work!
I really liked your video it was funny and answered the mission. The scene on the couch at the end was hilarious. One constructive point would be to work on the audio. I found that the music and sound effects were way louder than the talking and it was almost distracting and hard to listen to. Good luck with top 15!
Thanks for the great feedback, Kara! We always appreciate candid, constructive, comments. What's the point of fan interaction otherwise, right? The only thing that matters is the show you wanna see...as long as it's ALSO the show we wanna make ;-) Kepp 'em coming and thanks for watching!
I love the quick action, it keeps your attention. The hot cookie tray, catching the coat and the surprise milk in the head are great shots. You guys are really taking this seriously and doing a fantastic job! I want to see more!
Thank you! So much support my heart is full to bursting.
Too funny guys! We laugh so hard every time we catch your new videos! Keep up the fantastic work and we hope to see you make it all the way to the final fifteen!! Best of luck!
Thank you so much Jessi! Keep spreading the Goon Love :-)
I freaking love it and can't wait to see more!
You guys are crushing this! I love the shots of complex fight shit!! As far as I am concerned you are the project to beat!
Great jacket throw! Your guys' idea is a great one! I would love love love to see this made! So much fun and super cool fight choreo!
Thank you Laura! The support is so appreciated.
Bravo! Really well done! I thought this was really funny. I love your videos and look forward to more from you guys! Good luck moving forward!
Thank you Nicole! Its always such a treat to see your comments here :-)
Seeeeeeewww great. I love it. Good luck guys! xoxo
Oh man you guys never fail me. LOVE the jacket toss! Keep it comin goons :D
Not so sure this has enough to watch weekly. Good for this one time.
The hype was crisp and the fight scenes great.
Not sure that I would watch it however, as there are few laughs there.
Keep gooning it up guys!! Great sell sheet :)
missed the mark a bit on the video. Lacking production value. Your sell sheet is good though.
not sure if we watched the same video, Lacking production value??? Great cuts, timing , editting, action. It was great and very funny in my opinion Production Value was there.
