Self-Taught Cinematographer - rip me a new one! :)

I'm Earl, I've been lurking on the site for awhile, and really appreciate the amount of great information from everyone.
Be assured that I will be stealing from all of you.
I came up as a writer originally, evolved into producing my own work, and now do a sci-fi series on the Internet that I shoot/edit/bleed for/etc.
I'm posting this sample because I'd really like to get some thoughts on how I can improve my cinematography. There is a certain quality missing in what I'm doing right now, and I can't peg what it is, but I'm pretty sure the folks here can give me some good tips.
This might move a bit fast, but it'll give a good sample of my work overall (a few shots were done by another up-and-coming DP, but by-and-large those are me).
Thanks for your time, and thanks again for this terrific site -

Video can look very good, you just have to remember to expose for the highlights so they don't blow out (unless you want them too, of course) and then bring up your shadows so you don't lose all information you want to see.
But that's just my opinion based on an internet box for what it's worth.
