Wow! I am SO excited about this. I was amused when I first heard about it. As I found out who was in it, I got interested, and the fan-hype machine has whipped me into a frothy frenzy. Well, not quite, but by July 15th when the first episode airs, it will be.
I am pretty sure nobody ever reads this, but if you do MARK THAT DATE! and on July 15th watch the episode for free, then go out and buy it, from iTunes, Amazon, or anywhere that is selling it. It won't cost you much, but if every fan drops $2 on each episode then the production will prove it is viable on the Net. And that's important folks. VERY VERY important.
