    This is just a taste of what's in store for the Communers. We have thirteen episodes, an incredible cast, a super-talented DOP, a perfect location and the writing ain't too bad either! Vote for the COMMUNERS today!

    Would've liked to see what they do in the Communers. The concept has potential but isn't shown well in the concept video.
