It's a mistake.  It is only supposed to be the first half of the short.  Guess you get a sneak preview of the end of it.

This really threw me for a loop just now. It doesn't seem like "Call if Free" is even long enough to justify having to pay for a second half. I know it's only ninety nine cents, but in this day and age, it's so rare for anybody to actually pay for any kind of media content that you'd think they'd at least give you the entire thing in one package. Heck, I'd have paid two bucks to have the complete thing all at once.

I haven't bought it yet, but judging from RVR's post saying its 22+ minutes, that's pretty in line with the two parters they've already done.  Somewhere around 10 minutes for one short or one part of a short is about what I've come to expect.

Not done yet.  No ETA.

We appreciate the non polite inquiries so much.

This is not the first time we've broken up longer short, but thanks for the passive aggressive tone.

Yeah, I would venture that the average short is 10-12 minutes. I think the longest one we did was around 20, and there have been shorter ones around 5.  Longer ones like this and the case of Tommy Tucker just take longer to produce and take more bandwidth.

But then you'd be wasting 2 cents.  That's outrageous.
Towel, please.

I vote to get rid of these 2-parters.  Give us the entire short and charge $1.98 for it.

I quad-cur? Anyway, at least we'd get complete shorts this way. Without a MONTH delay between parts. Harrumph.

I was really surprised last night when I downloaded Call it Free and the second half was un-riffed and there was nothing about it being a two-parter! I guess it was a technical glitch. I wonder how they'll approach fixing it? ???
