This was a super fun episode to create. It's no secret I love fried chicken (and have the waistline to prove it) and it was fun to pass my love of fried chicken onto Ace Tucker. Since Ace grew up in outer space, he's been eating non-Earth food his entire life. I thought it would be cool to explore a human's first reaction to fried chicken. Hence, the excitement in Ace's voice when he proclaims, "Oh man! I have GOT to see what's going on inside that KFC!"
This episode also brings in one of my favorite characters, the potty-mouthed spitfire KFC cashier, April Massey. She will become a more central character in the coming episodes and it's awesome to let you guys finally meet her.
And to make Episode 4 even cooler, a brand new Red Hot Rebellion song is being premiered today! Riker's Beard is available exclusively through the Episode 4 - UNCENSORED (Plus 9 Songs) download. Get the episode and all the cool tunes used therein (including Riker's Beard) for only $0.99!
Without further ado, I give you Episode 4: The Smell of Pure Happiness
