For die-hard Pendant fans only
The best part about this show is also the worst part about this show. I like the interviews with the Pendant personnel, but it's so obvious that it's scripted, recorded separately, and assembled like one of their dramas. Why don't they do an actual, live interview? While we're at it, drop the "How did you find Pendant?" question. There's only so many answers to that question, and we've heard them all by now.

Back in January, Pendant missed their first release date. With three years of history behind them, that's pretty impressive, actually. Unfortunately, Jeff Bridges obsessed over the missed deadline. He ought to be more concerned with raising the quality of his shows. Most of them are okay, or at least acceptable. But there's nothing GREAT, nothing that makes me anxious for the next episode, nor desperate to share with friends. THAT is what he should be aiming for.
Pendant is preparing another show in their DC-Pendant universe. This might be good, but who knows? Jeff Bridges has kept the name of the show completely under wraps, but in doing that he has let slip a golden opportunity to build up the interest in the new show. He should have been promoting it all along on TWIP, playing trailers and excerpts, talking it up as much as possible. Instead it's always, "the upcoming fifth DC-P show, but I can't talk about it yet." So he keeps the whole show hidden. How much more excitement would be built if people actually KNEW what they were getting excited about? For instance, if I knew that a Teen Titans show were coming, or a Green Lantern Corps series was coming, I'd be a whole lot more interested in listening to the shows *now* just to hear clues for what is to come. But this way, I really don't care about the new show since I know nothing about it. True, there are some that are excited anyway, but it's the equivalent of when someone tells you, "I have a secret but I can't tell you." Frankly, I find that boring, not enticing.
