Goths in cottage country; now that is funny. I am sure that people all across the country can relate to that circumstance. Good job.

    After watching the teaser, and this video, I have absolutely no idea what this show is supposed to be about. Sorry guys, there isn't really a clear idea here...

    Not too shabby my friends. I think you can probably bring a new light to this idea and be a little more creative with it as well. Also, production quality definitely needs some more improvement but that is just my opinion. Good luck on the future endeavours.

    I like the cottage Canadian vibe but didn't really see the funny it was more creepy

    The goth costumes and make-up make this unusual. Not sure they make it funny. However, the black lipstick on the peaches and cream corn is a nice touch.

    Goth comedy is a different spin. Reminds me of a little of beetle juice.

    I liked it but didn't totally get it. I liked the set up, the look the costumes. If its sketch id be interested to see what else you guys bring...certainly will keep my eyes open for you!

    I loved the beginning. It looked like a great set up with the super 8 reel and the hair spinning wildly around. Well told. But the payoff left me wanting more. It admire the time y'all put into shooting and editing it. Solid effort. I look forward to seeing how you progress.

    Royal, you're right. It's a good set-up. Not sure if Goths in cottage country are something I care to watch.

    Zaphod's Ottawa through the 90s was a mainstay, so I can safely say I am not sure I saw the funny. It is a great notion, to bridge goth jokes and cottage life. Perhaps I am looking at it through goth tinted glasses? And if I were more of a cottager, I would be cackling.
    Oh wait. I just showed it to my 60 something aunt. She thinks it is bang on. And she certainly makes up a bigger audience than ex-goths. *cracks smile.

    A nihilist comedy - OK! It's a cool variation on "The Outsider Dealing with a Foreign Environment" which is fertile comedy ground. I would like to see where and how dialogue goes, but the over the top video and voiceover are fun.

    I like that you gave us an actual sketch at least I can see what type of humor and style you guys are going for. The artsy fartsy tone was enjoyable and I laughed at the football bit.

    This is my first view of your project. I guess I'm not really clear from this what your show is, BUT the name and the style has made me want to go and see your first intro video, good job on sparking my interest.

    I thought this was a different concept than a lot of the videos I've watched so far. Different but interesting. Good luck!

    I'm having trouble determining what it is that you guys are trying to do with this show concept. Is it a sketch comedy? Or something else? I don't think it's funny enough to make it, but I wish you guys luck.

    Some funny parts, i would agree that some of the material still needs work in order to appeal to a mass market.

    It is too bad so many obviously fake raters are turning this contest into a joke. This video is obviously well done and different. I wish these guys luck, and not the phony "good luck" these bashers are wishing. I hope you get picked to move on!

    Not really sure whats happening here... i liked the idea of making fun of Ontario tourism videos but you didn't really do much with it.

    I don't really understand how this video is related at all to your concept of a series of sketch comedies done within a house. I also think I missed the part where you are meant to clarify your uniqueness, maybe Ninterland is unique, but what about your original concept? It would have been great to see more of your show this week and some of your humour too. Good luck with the competition!

    The hinterland intro caught my attention but from there it felt dark and not always in a funny way. It is definitely different from other team concepts but it needs more clarity.

    hmmm.. Intersting.. not sure what it was all about, though. I iked the camera work and the hinterland call back at the beginning.. it brought me back!
    Good luck guys, but maybe you need to work on your comedy chops a bit more?

    The only part I found somewhat funny was the guy biting into the corn on the cob. I'm not quite sure this would be categorized as a comedy. I'll check in again, though, to see if there is more comedy in the next mission. Good luck guys.

    So happy to see that the first real look at your sketch chops is such a strong one! This is such a funny concept and you guys executed it brilliantly. Can't wait to see more
