What I liked

This is a FANTASTIC premise. It’s incredibly unique and unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

What I didn't like

I’m not 100% on the execution, and that’s what kind of kills it for me. First, the run time was only 20 minutes. There’s a point in the show where the non-playing audience chooses the next move, and I think that’s what chopped our time so severely. Additionally, I can’t imagine what this would be like watching – I was a player, so I had a wonderful time, but I don’t know how entertaining it is if you’re not playing.

My overall impression

I’m just left feeling like it didn’t live up to its full potential. I would love to see the show go back into workshopping and I would absolutely see it again. Check it out if you some free time, but I wouldn’t call it a must see.
