  • Thanks for the great feedback, Stephen!
    Your advice will be very helpful for the next time I make a pilot.

  • Itís a bit difficult to put into words, but Channel 101 isnít really for (mini) sketch shows. One could make the case that 101 is, itself, a sketch show. The only sketch show I know that 101 has even shown is ďEverything,Ē which could more be considered a showcase or presentation. It was also a joint effort by multiple people.

    Iím sure itís hard, in quarantine especially (Iím assuming this was all shot in quarantine), but a sketch show really thrives from having a group coming together and collaborating on ideas. One guy doing all of it doesnít do anything for me, to be honest. Going to get it out of the way and say this is heavily (HEAVILY) influenced by Limmyís Show and it shows. Iíd even go so far as to say... itís kind of a knock-off. (Sorry!) A sketch show needs unique voices to really stand out. Limmy has his, and Iím sure you have yourís, but itís not his.

    But, thereís also some fun little things in here that I think would be better suited for Twitter or TikTok. I could see the bit about the never-ending ad read being really popular because it is really fucking relatable.

    All of that being said, many of these observations could and should be put into a proper, narrative show. I think a man who puts squirrel watching above all else is the strongest of the batch.

    Honestly, take any bit here and repurpose it for a pilot. I think everyone (including you) would be a lot happier with the result.

    Of course, this is also just a take from an audience, so, grain of salt and all that.
