But do either of them really know what they're about to land in?

Nick is an Emmy nominated animator who hangs out with babies. He has worked as the creative lead on hundreds of awesome projects with sexy clients like Dewar’s, Disney, Nike, and the Navy. In addition to the comfortable whoredom of advertising, Nick has participated in awesome projects like MTV’s sexy ‘Wonder Showzen’. His original comedy pilot ‘Squid Dragon Legend’ won an oversized novelty check at the New York Television Festival and he recently stopped animating gangsta animals for Steve Marcus’ legendary ‘Three Thug Mice’. He’ll soon start writing and animating a series of sexy and depressingly hilarious cartoons for Fox Inkubation. When I say “he” I’m talking about “me”. Most people write their own bios. See you later. “You” meaning “me” also. Awesome!

Is there a way to watch episode one? When I click on it, it leads me to episode 3.

aprilffi (18th September 2009)
Charming. More now.

kspringer (22nd February 2009)
More. more more! What well-rounded characters. They all kinda bug me and I kinda like them, too.

Billperron (28th January 2009)
The characters are very timely in todays world considering the global economy. As one who follows the Vedanta faith I can see tremendous comedic potential in the East meets West aspects of their relationship. A true Hindu would have at least consulted an astrologer before marrying her, and an astrology bit could have added a comedic dimension. I have other ideas but no one has asked me and I am not about to make the insulting mistake of voicing advice where it has not been requested.

Perrine (27th January 2009)
So, is that it? Episode 3 was the last one, right?

BroncoDave (12th April 6203)
Episode 3 was a nice recovery. There is so much more there with these charaters. If you filled in the holes you would have 10 episodes instead of 3 ! When is it going to full 22 min episodes !!!!!

mitch36 (15th January 2009)
lol that was so funny,i just wish it was longer :(. still it was great:)

BroncoDave (14th January 2009)
I love these characters. Please make the episodes longer and don't give it all away in five minutes! I want to luxuriate in them.....
