Teaser #1

Well, since this series seems to be moving at warp speed (hell, I wasn't expecting a Teaser this fast), I figured we gotta get this thread up and running now.

The Hollywood News interviews Alan Tudyk and Con Man and Firefly.  Tudyk also spills ideas for Wash, like the story of his prison tats or locking the keys inside the ship, as well as for his show, such as doing a production of "Of Mice And Men" with Lou Ferrigno.

Ya beat me to it!!! I came here to post the trailer. Seems you were very aware of it dropping today. I knew they would be there, but I wasn't expecting a kickass trailer to go with it. It's stacked with cameos, the best obviously being those with ties to Firefly.

Cheers, man!  Watching another John Cleese Q&A now which is just cracking me up ("Who was Mary Queen Of Scots?" "She was a Scottish Darts player who was killed in the blitz!") but I was needing something after this.  Panels and Q&As are suiting me right now, they're real low-energy, so they're breaking through my water's block b/c it's all so unimportant.


Oh my god, watching this, I realized how long it's been since I watched Firefly: I'd totally forgotten that Wash died in Serenity until the "sleeping with baby Jesus" moment.

So I saw the first three episodes courtesy of the EW preview (which I still have open!) amd... it was good.  It was d6mn funny.  My only real issue is that there's no B-story (which is common in internet series), but the only reason that issue came into my mind is because the show feels so professional, it looks like any other TV show, which is fantastic.

I really like how the divided the episodes up, they're very modular, like one episode is the airport, the second is the signing, etc... very sensible, every episode feels distinct.

But what's great about the show is the cast, they're all given great characters to play.  That's a biggie, create roles that actors want to play and they'll show up.  That's how you get a cast like that, and you can tell everyone wanted to show up and do it, and that kind of devotion and drive really shows in the final product.  And of course, it helps that all the roles are hilarious, even if they only have one line.

Considering that The Impression Guys was picked up by Pop! after its' first season and turned into a "proper" show, I can easily imagine the same thing happening with this.  It'd be great to see a second season with half-hour episodes and some more breathing budget.

What the f*ck. I've been waiting patiently for this to drop on Vimeo. So, I head over to add to my Watch Later so that I can watch through Roku and I get some bullsh*t message saying I have to be a paying subscriber watch Con Man. BULLSH*T!!! I've been a member for 5 years and never heard of this paying service. Ugh!

So you have to pay twice?  That's garbage.  Man, I want this thing on Blu-Ray.

This makes me doubly happy that I STILL have the preview window open and that it STILL works.
