1) Time slot: I'm from the EU and the show starts at 3am....that's just to late
Moving it to Sunday won't change anything if its on the same time slot (because work the next day)
2) I realize it's often out of everyone's control, but having shows cancelled doesn't help any show, especially a new one like Blades where after only 3 episodes people had to wait up to 5 weeks for the next one. So the interest might just dwindle, and people might just 'forget' about it.
3) The pacing especially in the beginning was sooo slow, where it felt like nothing was happening (mainly those downtimes). You would think a show about assassins would be great, exhilarating and just bad-ass cool, yet in the beginning it failed to grasp my attention as it felt like the show didn't move forward at all.
I remember the GM saying how all those mechanics (esp. downtimes) would go so fast they might be doing 2 scores in one show.....yet we had shows were a big portion of them were just downtimes (so it felt really slow, and less exciting to wait for the next show)
4) Some of the best (and my favorite roleplayers) are in the show yet is miss the lightheartedness goofiness, laughter and crazy things they are capable of doing (we've seen them do that n other shows)
In my opinion if a show is to serious it becomes depressing and less enjoyable to watch. But if that's what they want to go for then so be it its not a dealbraker for me
Also on a much much smaller note, the way the GM talks (as lovely of a person he might be) feels like he never has any energy, he almost puts me to sleep lol
All in all I think the show is slowly moving in the right direction and if the time slot is more EU friendly then I'll definitely tune in to watch it live every week
