I love roughly half of the stories on The Big Loop. They are all well acted and well written to the point where I didn't realize that the first episode was fiction. Some the other stories are simply not my thing, which is fine on an anthology story, and I don't pull any stars for that. My biggest gripe on the show is the sound design on certain episodes that renders them near unlistenable. I was unable to share FML with my wife because the jumps in volume were physically painful, until I downloaded an MP3 and mastered it on my own. The second season fixed some of the production issues and at points the sound design, though greatly improved, was distracting from the story.
