    from the little bit we've seen so far, I can tell that the animation and art are very good looking, and unique (at least by current standards)

    we'll have to see more to judge the writing

    I love the character designs, I hope the writing will be on the same level

    I'm just not sure about the artstyle. It just looks a little grotesque to me. Of course, the writing could save it, but the art style kinda weirds me out.

    Doesn't look interesting at all, but I'll still give it a chance. Nick proved they could make a good show with Harvey Beaks, hopefully they continue that trend.

    And if it DOES get good, it'll get shafted like all other current non-SB/FOP shows.

    Why you always thinking something negative when it comes to non SB/FOP to move to Nicktoons? We'll have to wait and see how the ratings will do. If the ratings did very well and better than Harvey Beaks, then it should keep Nickelodeon network. If this show flops in the premieres and continues downward trends ratings fall for new episodes or if it starts out decent and if ratings fall very hard like in low 1 mil or under 1 mil, then yes it's more likely to move to Nicktoons. Harvey Beaks had a tragic ratings fall as it progresses when Nick is in ratings downward trend.

    Just wondering, does anyone know if the each episode is 22 minutes or 11 minutes?

    Wow. Why do characters have to either be super ugly or super stupid these days?

    Also I'm really tired of whole sections of episodes merely capturing the characters having fun without a single ounce of humour to it. The clip on Variety was meh. Those 4 guys' lives are probably interesting enough to make a Disney sitcom.

    Nevertheless I'm hopeful for it, but I really want some substance. I consider parts such as the clip shown in the OP to be very filler, like breadcrumbs. I don't think the characters of a show should laugh continuously for minutes while I'm there waiting for something about which to laugh with them. Anyway, I'll get used to the art. It's certainly not bad. I just really don't like it.

    Actually, looking at current cartoons, there really aren't that many ugly characters

    Just wondering, but does anyone else kind of see this as Nick's not-so-direct answer to Teen Titans Go!? I'm not going to judge the series like that, but it seems that with the premise of four roommates hanging out and having fun together, it could go that way.

    Wow - that means it's gonna stink, isn't it? Sigh... I sure hope not. That does not sound good... At all, IMHO.
