What a difference! Not perfect, still tonnes of exposition through dialogue, but episode four of jPod was better than 1, 2 and 3 combined. I'm guessing the direction made a difference -- better angles, better shots, more close-ups. Acting was much better too. Script was better too. The animated sequences worked as well.
Even the clothing they were wearing looked better.
And Cowboy kept his chest hair hidden. That alone improved the show 15%.
Why wasn't episode one like that? Why???????????
