"While a 15-second format also presented huge challenges, [the filmmakers] were able to create entertaining episodes with a beginning, middle and abrupt cliffhanger endings that leave the viewer laughing and wanting to know what happens next." 

“There’s an Instagram 'television series' — and it’s about artists and the art world. It’s pretty funny.”

"We highlighted the forward-looking comedians of Artistically Challenged, whose new 15-second “television” show is changing the medium of Instagram and Vine.
“Artistically Challenged moves as fast as possible without leaving the viewer behind. It’s a daring, experimental strategy, and in this case, it has paid off.”
