The timing of the fading-in bg's are off. Either have them fade in together, or figure something else out ie: slide in the red bar then fade in the black bar,, but I think a simple fade in unison would work best.
I'd also fade in the "New Episode" after "Heros" has made its move or at the same time as '8 pt/9 ct"
As far as design goes it looks fine. Just gotta time out the moves and fades a little better. As is, each element has a mind of its own,, something like this should feel more unified, or connected,, if you get what I mean,,,
any hu,, my thoughts!
