    Within the first few seconds, all I could think was, "Yeah! Fuck boys!"

    I don't care what everyone else says, i liked it. I don't know why i waited until now to start watching this, but since i have the crunchtime coasters i figured i should start watching the show Already loving it.

    All I can say is WOW! This was really well made and well cast. Loved Levine in this roll, he really brought it to life. The female investigator was also really great, I remember her from Nightcrawler. Overall a really solid pilot, very funny but with enough structure to keep interest high. Very well done to everyone at Rooster Teeth.

    The premise is really weak and not compelling at all. Many are saying to watch the next episode so here's hoping.

    I had high hopes for this show, the concept sounded interesting and original. Had a hard time looking past the fact that it starts off with a girl who says no to a guy and he couldn't stand the rejection so he made her unconscious and went into her brain with his technology.

      you're totally entitled to your opinion, but i think the point of view of the show is the same as yours: sam did the WRONG thing. everything bad stems from this bad decision.

    Were the dogs used as models for Zwei in RWBY?

      No because Zwei was a thing in volume 2 of RWBY and this came out years after.

    Was this first episode great? No. Is this show well produced? Absolutely. I didn't dig the script or much of the characters, but the story is good. But hey I'll keep watching.

    Not gonna lie this is a very weak first episode for a new series. It doesn't hook the viewer at all and was drawn out. If I hadn't given the second episode a shot I would've never continued watching this series. Trust me people it gets so much better after this episode, just give it a try!

    I really don't get it. After what felt like years of hearing about Crunch Time and not knowing what it is and hoping it'd be amazing, I was expecting more from this. Nothing happened in this 20 minute long episode, except for unlikable characters being unlikable, and unfunny jokes being unfunny, and we know nothing about what sort of show it'll be.

      I felt the exact same way when I watched and thought I would give the second episode a go, it gets soooo much better in the 2nd episode and beyond. Stuff actually starts happening next episode where as this first episode was much more of a filler to get us caught up to things.

    Okay. I'm gonna say it. I want more female leads in RT live action.

      Nah man, we got RWBY for the female leads in RoosterTeeth.

      Live Action not Animation. I love RWBY but saying one show with a majority of female leads makes up for the lack there of in others is ignorant. Representation and varied casting is important for not only for viewer reliability but also adds dynamic to the show.

    It's compelling, but concerning. The characters are all irredeemable fucksticks and that episode was REALLY uncomfortable. :/

    I love the new show! The audio isn't very balanced though, the music and sound effects are super loud and the voices are super low. I had to keep running over to my computer to change the volume all the time. Please address this for the mix for Ch 2 =)

      There isn't one, it automatically chooses your resolution based on your internet speed. I think they will let you choose manually at some point in the future, but just not yet.
