I enjoyed the costumes and the set! And the sound design was well done. There were also some great moments of vulnerability between the characters that I wish had been more integrated into the plot.
What I didn't like
I think the writing could use some more workshopping to be more in tune with audiences comedically. Then we can get more nitty gritty with the plot and concept.
My overall impression
This show encapsulated a lot of pertinent themes, but ultimately left me wanting more. At times it felt like an alternate reality where men have genuine connections with each other and can be unabashedly kind, but the writing left me wanting more authenticity in the characters’ interactions, and never quite immersed me in the reality that it sought to present to the audience (from my perspective). A performance that I thought would be simple and pleasant ended up being pretty confusing and disorienting. Also, the whole Canadian thing felt a little too far removed from a comedic consensus reality to keep my interest for a full hour.
