Better than I expected.
More Star Wars Janitors than Space Quest (Roger Wilco) for my tastes. We'll see episode 2 and such.

I await the next episode.

Waaaay better than I expected. The actors are at least semi competent. Its no "Game Dogs", thats for sure, so thats a plus.

Still, I thought it was missing some puns and just some substance in general. But its just the pilot.

you need to work on the audio for the next episode.
the background noise and sound effects almost drowned out the dialogue.

little shaky but i like the concept. Plus rebel girl was pretty hot :D

That was pretty fun. I'm looking forward to some more.

Say, what happened to "Doraleus and Associates"? I used to lurk these boards and watch that show then suddenly it was gone.

"The year is 2411"

Great, so for another 400 years we as humans cannot come up with better ideas other than Star Wars :D

i think this is a pretty good original idea. there is room for some perfect comedic context. i just hope this show doesnt devolve into slapstick. ooohh please dont start doing slapstick, it will ruin this perfect set-up. keep it somewhat mature, introspective, and no slapstick! ill follow this series

*WARNING: RANT BELOW*
Really, i didn't like it. In fact, my dislike of the series came before the episode even was released. When I head the word "Space Janitors", I immediately thought "This is gonna be really boring and predictable.". I was right. When I saw the opening shot, My Yahtzee sense immediately told me "This is gonna be a parody of the Star Wars opening shot from episode 4.". And lo, it was. Saw the guys with obviously painted white halo helmets and thought "These guys are stormtrooper parodies.". And lo, it was. When the skinny janitor acknowledged the fact that the rebels didn't shoot at them, or notice they were there, I wanted to scream "I'd shot you, you technophile!". God-Emprah almighty, this is just "The Suite Life IN SPAAACE!", except they took out the funny characters, like the cop that ate a lot, or the messy guy. Maybe I'm being too hard on this show, but you cant deny that it could use some work.

Dastardly:

Space Janitors:
Space Janitors: Episode 1

Mike Chet and Darby Richards ponder their roles as janitors aboard a space station while under rebel attack. Stay tuned for the rest of the eight episode season to roll out starting in April.

Love it!

Well paced, and doesn't have all the, "Get it? Huh, get it?!" moments that too many shows out there have. Humor that is understated but absolutely essential, kind of like your protagonists.

agreed. doubley agreed. why do ppl do the "get it? get it?" line. it doesnt make anything ever any more funny, it just devaules the joke to explain it, or point out that it was in fact a joke.

As suspected, it pretty much sucked.

this is a realization of the 1st law of publishing on the internets: regardless of what you publish. whatever the subject matter, intent, implementation, budget, originality, political alignment, sexual orientation or karma level, there is a probability of 1 that some user will sooner than later proclaim that your material is shit. even if your material is 5stars in every category and absolute tits genius in the most absolute sense possible, someone will say it sucks. even if for the novelity of being the first one to say they think its shit. since this hate is inevitable and predictable, it amounts to there being a role (the dissatisfied viewer) and a roleplayer (the actual user who eventual fulfills this role).

Fiz_The_Toaster:
That was actually better than I expected, acting was a little weird at times, but I'd imagine it would get better as they put up new episodes.

So, I'm hooked now.

Atobe-sama:
Does anyone else think that looked like the Reboot symbol on their arms?

Yeah it kinda did. I was half expecting one of them to tap it, not that I think anything special was going to happen, but just for giggles.

REBOOT!!!

On topic: The episode was pretty boring but I see the potential for it to spread and improve.

okay your right some of the big aspects are not original at all. but, a pro to this con is at least this setting and context is familiar to the target audience. without introducting any novelty in the context or setting, i think its more closer to a parody than anything else, and the audience completely understands the environment and circumstances of the characters.

Yeah, I see what you mean. It may be a parody, but I don't like it. Probably for the same reason I don't like the call of duty series.

I'm going to add my two cents worth..

It's their first episode and the overall thing is rough. The Background shots and graphics are bad, but not completely awful. They need work. The guys and their acting is plausible but needs a hell of a lot of work. It has the elements to be a good series but at the moment it's not quite there yet.

As someone pointed out when the rebels came through they stood there like lemons. They hid behind their cart to shoot the troopers. More should have been made of that. Missed opportunity but it has some potential if they can be a bit more pro active.

Not writing it off just yet as it's one of the better pilots on here. Hopefully they can get the act together.

Nice idea, the acting was bit dry though

Well it wasn't embarassing to watch, so, good for you guys.

Good acting, really enjoyed it.

jboking:
Interesting show, guys. I liked the focus on character, keep it up.

I liked how the imperial clones had master chief masks. I don't suppose they were named Resistance 2 and Section 8. Ha...ha...yeah, never mind.

I noticed that too that they have the Master Chief's helmets just painted white.

MorganL4:
Anyone else immediately think Red Dwarf? Because the whole time that was all I could think of.

Definitely my first thought as well :)

This is gonna be awesome!

Plus, isn`t the one janitor the guy from HotboxÉ I loved that show!!

So.....where's the rest?

I assume that future episodes will actually have something happen in them.

I also hope that the future episodes will actually be funny.

Welcome to the escapist!

I think this show shows alot of promise.
You have my attention.

loved the first episode, it has huge potential as a scifi mix up of different shows with a it of a red vs blue, red dwarf, and star wars feel for this first episode

It's okay, I suppose. It has potential.
I'm not blown away by it though, mostly because I was left a bit disappointed by the fact that the presence of the rebels wasn't utilised for as much as it could have. I mean, we just watched the guy polish up that floor right before those guys ran through, right? In the back of my mind I was hoping one of them would slip, fall, and be dragged away kicking and screaming while the janitors just stood there watching nochalantly. "People don't realise how important we are." etc etc.

I liked it! And am I the only one who had a lol at the fact that this is better than the crap Adult Swim is putting out these days?

lol, absolutely love the premise

u might be right, sorry i didnt mean to be a dick. this series isnt that good. but im right about what i said arent i?

I enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to see where they go with it. Like most things it may not appeal to everyone out there, but I'm interested.

Cautiously optimistic fits it. Not the freshest premise, but the dialogue was good, and the production values are pretty amazing. So yeah, I'll follow this.

This show seems like it has a lot of potential and there seems to have been a lot of work been put behind it.
The acting was good and the choice of cast seems to be fitting too. I'm really liking the premise too.

I for one was entertained. Waiting anxiously for the next episode.

My only slight gripe is with the 3D effects which seemed to stutter a little and seemed like they could have been a little smoother, which made the parts which included SFX at the forefront a little distracting.

LostintheWick:
I was really hoping for a little more "Space Quest" and Roger Wilco.
But! This is worth keeping an eye on.

Was thinking the exact same thing !

^_^

love it:)
