Made my vote for Critical Canucks because I thought it was the best of the ones with an obviously Canadian title.

That said, I think the runaway of "The Dam Good Show" is my second pick, and likely the one I would go for if trying to appeal to a multinational audience (still has that small Canadian kick...one many people may not get, but its catchy).

Shucks, I was in favour of Beaver Time.

I laughed so hard it hurt my stomach when I read that the first time.

A couple comment for your consideration as well (being completely honest in hopes something may help the show do even better).

1. You have to make a catchy 10 second intro for the show to further push the show branding (once a name is finalized).

2. For me I would prefer shorter shows that are a bit more specific in topic...8-15min ish. I know it may not be what you are after with it, but this is my thoughts on it. In all honest I get bored quite quickly (with many everything), and find myself jumping though the video to find what I want, whereas if it were a bit more concise I would likely watch the whole thing.

3. I think all future video reviews (for now the case reviews) should carry the same name and intro video as this show (maybe modify it slightly...ex: "The Dam Good Show: Video Review"). I feel it would further link the two and make a better link with "Dam good" awards etc.

Awesome job guys. Keep it up.

I think the last point is interesting but the show really is its own entity within the HWC channel. :)

definitely liked this episode.
for those with no attention span I wouldn't change, you'll just end up rushing through things and losing the charisma.

keep up the DamGood work guys.

For those with no attention span, there's a time log with topics in the description of all these videos. ;)

Haha. I have an attention span, but most of the time it gets it interrupted by my kids. But I do get bored of some things realatively quickly...the show was not one of them. I think I may have written my last post in a way that makes me come across as having ADD. Meh...could be worse. Lol.
