I think these will sell and potentially bring in more miniature sales for wizkids. I hope we get the player characters ( I wonder if they cant be made until a contract on the originals runs out?).
Critical role has the whole package
dm knows his stuff and is brilliant running NPCS, running interesting encounters
For the most part the players especially in campaign 2 know their stuff, truly invested in their characters, are all charismatic, work great together plus come up with great ways to use spells/etc
the production/set/directing is far superior to anything else out there. this weekly show is more entertaining than most tv
ive tried the WOTC crew and acquisitions Inc (Acquistions for the most part is a live show at cons and really doesn't take itself seriously
