Space Janitors: Deck Crew: Payday

Deck Crew: Payday

Also never hurts to butter up the chef droid.

I love these little shorts, and I also love the inventive use of old school tech as the cloaking device and the simple interactions between the characters, really relatable and humanizes the characters. good work.

Captcha: Dollar Bill. Oddly apropriate.

Oh man, I wish I was on Deck Crew.

Those guys get all the ladies.

That was great. Also, clever cloaking effect.

The whole paycard thing is just beyond my ability to believe. The spaceships, cloaking devices, androids, and boss choking I can believe, but they're on a spaceship. Why do they still get paycards?

Well why else would they have a payroll droid?

I think that's part of the joke. The old "more things change the more they stay the same" cliche perhaps?

I'm not really sold on the shorts. I realize that the regular episodes are pretty production-heavy and can't come out every week, but isn't this disjointed schedule the same thing that doomed PGG?

Yay, more Deck Crew!
I love these shorts you guys do, too bad this one is quite SO short...

While I certainly like the humor of the short tie-ins... It does feel, how should I call it ... franchiseanized. Too many clips out of the actual series, three types of parallel seria ...
Would prefer them to be either structured more clearly (i.e. distinct features for SJ, SJ:DC, BtS), or simply scrap SJ:DC and BtS for the time being ...

Although PGG had a similar schedule. I believe that most if not all of this show has already been filmed. They won some kind of contest and get funding from some Canadian organization. Hence the higher production value and long credits. During some of the making of shorts there was footage of scenes we to this day haven't seen. So they must be filmed ahead of time. Like a regular TV show. They film for weeks straight and a few months later all the episodes come out once a week. Now no, I don't know this for sure. But that seems (to me anyway) like how this is all working.

Edit: I miss PGG.

I really enjoy this series and their deadpan humor. :) I hope to see it carry on for a good long time.

Kinda funny and very well made short I say keep it coming. And yea it feels a bit "spin-offish" to have these but I rather have them then not...

Keep messing with the payroll droid I'm sure it will come to it's sensors.... ;-)

The "It was hillariou.....I understand." transition was perfect.

Flash of skeleton was a nice touch. I found this episode to be exactly the right length for the content delivered. Less time=too short of an episode. More time=dragging out the joke. Well done.

I wonder how he will smooth things over with the payroll droid? Maybe an unlimited gift certificate at the Shining & Buffing kiosk?

To use the words of Zero punctuation: it was "Tighter than a walnut corset" (Portal 2 review).

VERY good job with this one. Look forward to the next episode!

That skeleton joke was definitely a good idea, but I'm not sold on the payroll droid joke. It would be funny if that guy had just accidentally erased its memory in such a way that it forgot to pay him, but if the droid has the personality of a human such that it gets pissed off at his pranks then he's just whatever the sci-fi equivalent of racist is.

These shorts never fail to make me laugh. I'm looking forwards to the next one.

"can you see you?" :P
Good short, I kinda like more Deck Crew than the other guys...

You know you can hate an individual or not get along with an individual and not be a racist right?

In both cases, the droid is paying all the rest of the (human) deck crew a good wage while not giving the one that dislikes him as much money, on the deck crew side he said "The payroll droid and I dont get along" not "droids and I dont get along" so again it points to just those two having a particular problem.

I like the deck crew more than the main characters at this point. They are hilarious, and rather unethical. Exactly like you would expect from the crew of an Evil Empire battleship.

funny with the deck crew. more please. but make them longer.

this one was actually really well done, i loved it, extremely funny

Gotta say this series is growing on me

I enjoy these things. I do believe the best moment was when the man suddenly realized what his rivalry with the payroll droid was doing to his salary.

Haahahah that was a good one.

"Can you see you?. . . hows that work?"

ALso how did he even get stuck invisible o.O
