I missed you, Siblings.
And I still enjoy your yelling.
Also, I got the secret. ;)
Misinterpretations with a big EH.
Now normally, I don't take any care to respond to stupid reviews, but my god! I didn't read this as a "OMG PS3 SUX" and was simply a rage at it's price tag, as I imagine most parents would go nuts at that kind of price.
Get over yourself viewers, this isn't a Console Bash.
*******NOW ONTO THE FLASH********
The comedy was almost as bad as the rushing for this flash. I understand this is one of your experiments with a Tablet, but I'm not going to give you Pity Points for it. I grade as I see.
I like the style of comedy, but you didn't seem to perform it well. Now, I'm no big fan of yours, as I've never really heard of you, so maybe you don't normally do this kind of comedy. By the style, I mean the Mood-Swing-Impulsive kind; the sudden changing of emotion due to an event. You took this and combined it with the premature "OMG LOOK GUIZ BAD WURDS LUL", and didn't exactly voice said reaction well. It would have been better if the customer would have rolled with the cursing, and yelling it or something, but the voice stayed monotone. It's a case of bad voice acting with a very shaky comedy style that gave this piece as low a score as it has.
While the flash had some funny bits, I didn't get any real laugh out of it. I only smirked and did a small chuckle at a part, and that was all there was really time for. The flash would do better if the voice actor really got into it, and more time was spent perfecting the drawing and extending the cartoon a tad longer.

The final review of the episode!!!
Now, I believe that this episode ended rather badly. WAIT WAIT WAIT HEAR ME OUT!
In an action flash like this, and especially if you have 3 parts to a single episode, you need to drag in the crowd. Your "Thesis Plot"; the thing that the series is about. You ended it of her driving off, and it never truly explained how or what kind of action there is. Is she going to be fighting off some soldiers for food? Or just drive around and mope? I can't honestly tell, because her just having all this action over sustenance makes the action seem a little silly.
Sure, you can make it as action-y as you will, but when the motive is that loaf of bread, it almost seems like a bad joke, dealt to be funny with the seriousness. I was hoping to see that she was holding some sort of relevance of why the soldiers wanted her dead, but I came out empty handed.
There are a few other plot holes, like how she has a car that still has gas, and didn't explode like a car (aka A box of lighter fluid and explosive objects) should have; and how she seemed to stop at a gas station for gas, when all reminiscence of a Gas station should be blown to pieces, as oil is extremely explosive; but I don't want to go into the plot holes really, because those are easily forgotten and tossed aside for the sake of plot speed.
It's a very interesting story, but I want to know that there is something to be fought over. Hopefully, I will see such a thing in the next episode.

The above should not be said in a flash as serious as this is supposed to be, as adding comedy to gruesome makes a small part of a person die inside, even if they laugh along. Some of the choices, which I can't truly object to as I haven't been in a high-stress situation, that "Girl" did seemed laughable. Such as "OH CRAP I MIGHT CRASH INTO THAT TRUCK! QUICK TURN INTO THE LANE!" seemed to be a bad idea, if she was trying to dodge incoming traffic and not off herself.
This one at least ended right, as we were compelled to know if that was her head that was just chopped off, regardless of there being huge plot tears if it did happen.
Not much else to say about it, other than that I slap your wrists for trying to be funny with death. What are you Roman?
Oh right... realistic sounds and great animation and all that jazz. If you want what was good, go read the reviews rated 10. There's like 800 of them, so take your pick.
Alright to start...
This part of the episode was probably one of the better intros I've seen, especially taking that it really pokes at your fear. You take one of the possibilities of a apocalypse that is believed in general, and speed up the process (or are you? :o) to make it seem modern day without it being too unbelievable. You add to the thrill of the flash because of this, making the series much more compelling to watch.
It didn't have very much action, but I guess I shouldn't be complaining about that in an introduction. You ended it at a not-so-cliffhanger, with only the sense of "What will happen next?" to make us go watch the second episode, without adding a "OMG SHIT IS GOING DOWN!", because we were already told that missiles were being launched, so watching one do so isn't as interesting.
Other than that, you show great potential, and I hope to be watching this series in the future.
Nobody told me it had a preview...
Everyone's ass is mine, but I must say this was epic.
Great as always Fire... INCOMING: NERDING TIME
I really tired of all of these Clock Crew spinoffs. There all spam groups! All you guys do is spam and its so stupid! And ripping off a spam crew is even stupider. I mean, you guys don't even have any original ideas, so you have to copy someone elses. i mean it isnt that hard I dont have any flash yeah but i dont need to know what is bad flash. I could do better than this shit Well w/e you guys suck bye
Kinda confused, but thanks haha.
You should definitely use real voices. :P
You'll soon learn that I enforce such a rule, but other than that I'm glad we have an animator pumping out submissions this early in the game.
I dont have a mic right now but thanks for the advice.
got a mic i might even start making music and putting videos to them!

It's a great idea, I love the idea of an animated blog. But the problem is... you actually need to ANIMATE for an animated blog. You use a lot of loops, which can be alright in small doses, but can make an animated blog like this very bland, and I found myself even pausing mid blog to check something. I was entertained, don't get me wrong, but it got dull, and was more of a background sound.
I know you only take a few hours to make it, but it still could have had a little more work put into the making. I do like how Dave will be drawing something during the blog, but here's a fun idea: How about he draws something that relates to the upcoming comic? A fun little sneak peak at the new comic. I'll be continually reviewing your upcoming blogs, and will be visiting your site more often. Keep up the good work.

It was alright, but not well suited.
Now, I came into this with a wonderful idea of what this flash would be. I was thinking "Shape art that moves to the music! This should be fantastic!" But I noticed quickly that it was not the case. It was moving shapes, and not particularly good match ups. The color scheme was all over the place, and with the regular tempo that was in no way related to the music... it was crap. I'll just be blatant.
I love Linkin Park, and I especially love Faint. But this was a shameful spot on their record that needs to be wiped off.
