What I liked

The show does a very good job of integrating and interacting with its multimedia elements (the show really soars during the montage of Otto’s first attempt to be a superhero and the climax).

What I didn't like

The pacing of the show needs work; tightening up some of the dead spots between scenes would help keep the energy going (and get the show closer to its advertised runtime). The end credits conceit also needs some smoothing; there was a point where it really felt like the show was over (and some audience members got up to leave), only for the show to present us with one more wrap-up scene.

My overall impression

An amusing if somewhat uneven story of standing up to the powerful forces of the world that seek to control us. A charming cast with effective multimedia integration; the show will undoubtedly tighten up and grow stronger throughout its run.
