Web Series: ‘The Most Interesting Man in Studio City’

Nobody at TVWriter™ knows exactly what to say about Douglas Olsson’s new series, The Most Interesting Man in Studio City. Is it a success? A failure? Something in between?

The problem boils down to this: When you create something that’s all about mediocrity and disguise that mediocrity by calling it success, how do you know if it works?

Mediocrity, almost by definition, is uninteresting, yeah? But The Most Interesting Man in Studio City isn’t uninteresting. In fact, there are times that it’s very interesting indeed. Hmm, wouldn’t that mean it was failing?

In other words, man, are we ever confused. So we’re copping out and throwing this one to our visitors. Here’s the trailer. Hit? Miss? Somewhere in between? Take a look and tell us what you think:

EDITED TO ADD:  Looks like somebody has a lot of confidence in this project because from what we can see, all the episodes of TMIMSC have been monetized. You can buy ’em. You can rent ’em. But you can’t watch ’em for free.

Hmm…now that really is interesting.

Web Series: See Episode 2 of ‘My Death Co.’

Last March, we saw the first episode of My Death Co and called it “Possibly the best directed and shot live action web episode we’ve ever seen…and the script ain’t too shabby either.

Last week, the long-awaited (by all of us DeathCo fans at TVWriter™) Episode 2 dropped on the interwebs. It’s every bit as good as the first, and we really think you’ll enjoy what you see:

Pretty tasty, yeah? Now if only creators Shawn McDaniel and Ben Hammond would let these eps out of their clutches a little more quickly, we’d be very happy reapers ourselves.

THIS JUST IN:

We just got an update on the My Death Co release schedule. Here’s what Ben Hammond has to say:

The release of episode two will be followed by episodes three and four in October. Matt McCarthy (Conan, Louie, The Angry Birds Movie) joins the cast for episode three.

McDaniel and Hammond plan to have the first season completed and released by the end of the year and will take it on a larger festival run in 2019. On the future of the series, Hammond notes, “We’ve got our sights set on bringing this thing to a major streaming platform like Netflix or Amazon as a half hour show. We love the compact, more intimate, moments we bring to viewers in a five minute episode, but can’t wait to expand on not only Sam’s character, but the entire world that My Death Co. exists in.”

Glad to hear this, Ben. Really looking forward to more! More! MORE!

Indie Video: ‘Ernest and Bertram’

In a world filled with reasons to be outraged and angry, the following parody of Sesame Street‘s favorite couple seems to us to have generated much more than its fair share of hate:

Well done, yeah? And definitely in the dog house with PBS and Children’s Television Workshop et al. 

In the spirit of one of our absolutely least favorite offline series, House Hunter, may we suggest a compromise?

What if we say that yes, Bert and Ernie of course are gay – what kid who grew up watching the show could ever think otherwise? – but that they’re asexual homosexuals?

Because what kid who grew up watching the show could ever think otherwise about that either?

Web Series: ‘The Nonsense Box’

For those who miss Monty Python.

Student’s hand shoots upward: “Teacher! Teacher! Isn’t that everybody?”

Teacher nods sadly, wipes a tear from her eye.

In other words, have a look at this, the first episode of a web series that we’ve enjoyed more than anything else we’ve seen…well, since John Cleese was funny:
