From the beginning, they have insisted every episode is already recorded and finished, implying it will complete its 26 episode run on an episode a week schedule.Like most series, it's an Affectionate Parody, but at many points, it employs some dramatic elements, and even, by Word of God, elements of Deconstruction.Episodes can be found on YouTube, here. In order to maintain the series in the event of the channel being taken down, a Blip channel simultaneously uploads the vids.
