    Hi Rodrigo! I was on the panel last month. This pilot was a lot of fun. We LOVED how the main person said Rupert. So funny. I wanted to see the pair go do something, like go on an adventure earlier. It seemed like a lot of talking. Please keep making this, it has a lot of potential!!

  • The logo is great. I like the concept. I was totally in. Once the dog started to go down the existential dilemma wormhole I started to check out. I think you might have better luck with keeping the idea more grounded. Stick with the concept of the dog being cynical with day to day stuff. Maybe he has to get a job and the job sucks. Maybe he decides that the boy is too needy inverse of mans best friend scenario. Maybe the boy trys to do dog and boy stuff and the dog has a cynical albeit funny comment. You know day to day stuff. Don't race right to existentialism within 10 seconds of being conscious.
    The butt licking joke was funny it got a solid laugh but got old after 3 uses. Try to punch up the jokes the dog tells. The boy should be the question the pitch if you will. The dog should be delivering the punchlines.
    All in all you have a good premise here just need to write the dialog a little different and I think this would kill. Good luck buddy! Keep submitting :)
