Not bad, not great. A little of both.
I've only seen the first season. Maybe I need to look a little closer at their website to find the second season, which IMDb says has already been shown.

This is primarily a series of shorts (maybe 7-10 minutes each) about street dance. Some folks might not consider some of it to be dance, but more like gymnastics or illusion. It's a fine line.

But whatever you call it, the dance is entertaining. And the music is really good too. Certainly the production values far exceed any other web series I've seen (keeping in mind I usually watch Star Trek fan films of varying levels of quality). This is a very slick production, even for television.

Where it falls apart is with the story. By episode ten, you're rolling your eyes at the guy who introduces each episode in such a cliché (and some might say offensive) way. And while I can understand the desire to turn what you do into a superpower, this is not the way to do it. Probably the best episode was Duet, which was just a simple sort of long-distance romance dance between a guy and a girl (still, points lost for making this I think the only episode that isn't all male). Another episode that was interesting was one that takes off on the familiar tale of magic dancing shoes (forget the title). But most of the rest are kinda embarrassing to admit watching. It seems to take place in a world where nobody dances, unless they have this super dance power, and then they split up into the LXD, and the bad guys. This is the sort of thing that maybe your own dance club or whatever might make as sort of a home video to remember old times, but you wouldn't broadcast it to the world.

So, to sum, great dancing, great music, polished to a shine, but the story is absurd.

I rate Season 1 at 7/10. Barely. Each episode is short enough that you can focus on the dancing, and mostly ignore the story. I don't see much room for the dancing or music to improve, so hopefully the story improves in Season 2.
