Ratings and Reviews
Only 4 Stars
I love everything about this animated docudrama. It's inventive, original and hard to "not watch". With that said, I can only give 4 stars due to the fact that while the story and animation are top notch, the app itself is not. I bought all episodes and prefer to stream them through the app as with all downloaded they take up too much space on my iPhone. Unfortunately, everytime I try to stream an episode, the app crashes. It may be due to iOS 8. If that's the case it's time for an update. Please!!
Very good short "films"
Just watched all 20 episodes. Found the animation excellent, sound design very movie-like, the ideas and designs were very creative and the characters held my interest for the entire run of the series.
The episodes run about four to five minutes each and they still manage to pack a lot of story in each episode.
The series ends open-ended and Tom Hanks said he didn't know what they were going to do with Electric City after this. It would be nice if they could continue, but Tom noted (in his Nerdist Industries podcast interview) that he basically made no return on his money to create this series.
Excellent job, Mr. Hanks. I'd love it if you could continue this series on the web or via the app and make it worth your time and investment.
"All in service to all!"
Freaking love it!!
Hanks is stepping out of the normal to push media in crazy ways. The concept and level of cross platform entertainment is brilliant!!
