  1. I felt like the dialogue was a little too scripted, especially in the beginning. It doesn’t read like a real conversation to me.

    I found the scene with Julia in the call center very funny.

    Are you envisioning this being a movie or a TV series?

  2. Hmm; didn’t leave that much of an impact on me. The villain is kinda cartoony. The scene in Julia’s office was kinda funny. But I have to wonder about how it’s going to be framed. The customer was justifiably angry with her; and she’s fired (which is a corresponding consequence), but are we meant to sympathize with her because she’s blind?
