"I mean yeah they had cardboard sets and easily recognisable props, and plotlines that were scraping the barrel, but it had heart. Like they knew they were doing the best with the little they had and they were pulling every trick they had their hands on to make it work. They were trying so hard and it shows. This wasn't even shoestring budget. More like spiderweb budget."

Like, they had nothing but an idea and a handful of buddies willing to pull something out of their collective asses and it shows... but there's a good concept and everyone's behind it one thousand percent. Like, there's no way in the world that high-ticket studios can even try to catch that lightning in a bottle."
