So… I was trying to figure out which web series to talk about for this post and then it hit me in the face that while we promote Shelf Life on the twitter and facebook pages, and we’ve done interviews, we have never made a post simply about the show. Well, season 4 just finished “airing” the other day, so this is the perfect time, right? I agree.
I’m back with another look at an older web series. This one is a wee bit different- it was essentially a film that was broken up into episodic pieces. Thus there is and will be no season 2 etc. But that doesn’t keep me from wanting to share.
Back in 2009 rumors and information hit the ‘net that Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood) was going to be starring in a dark and twisted new web series. I was in love with it just from knowing that tiny bit. When Girl Number 9 began airing… it was almost too dark to watch alone. Utterly fantastic.
I have been receiving links to plenty of great new web series, however, sometimes I want to share the old favorites that keep me intrigued by whats out there. So here’s a short post about one of those oldies… that just happens to be the brainchild of a favorite of this site, James Gunn- PG Porn.
One of the things I want to do with this web series review posts is point out a small series that you may or may not have heard of and give each it’s moment in the spotlight. Today, I want to touch on a series from the amazing talent of Jane Espenson and Brad Bell (probably better known as Cheeks). Continue reading
I’m back! And I have another web series to discuss! But first… can I be honest? I have absolutely no clue what this series is about. I remember watching the premiere ep when it first came out because a twitter friend, Elliott, is the narrator- and I remember that even then I had no clue.
I mean… I don’t think I’ve ever been chemically altered enough to understand this show. Ever.
When I started this site back in March, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was showcase and review things like comics and web series. Well, Stewart accepted the challenge of looking at comics with his ongoing series, As Long As I Don’t Wear Tights Or Spandex, so now I want to get started with a look at web series (I want to also touch on web comics, but that’s another set of posts).
I’ve gotten involved over the last few years with a lot of people that either work on or are attached in some way to a lot of different web series, and thus they keep coming to my attention. Just recently we’ve showcased Tara Platt & Yuri Lowenthal due to my work with Action Flick Chick regarding their work, Shelf Life the Series. So… these things just keep coming at me!
But for the first series up on the block, I want to share one that is near and dear to me- in part because as a supporter of it, the ups & downs of this little show have sent me on an emotional rollercoaster. But also because the creator has become a friend and really, when doing these things you should pimp your buds first, right? Thought so.
