Do you realize how frustrating it is that you can find a directory of just about everything online from blogs to podcasts to books. Except web series. The very video content that is made for the web is harder to find on it than a traditional TV show. Since I’m starting to researching a little project, it’s extremely annoying not being able to easily compile a decent cross section of the different types of web series available.
Not that online directories are the best judge of things either but I do find them to be good starting points. And unlike blogs or podcasts, web series aren’t as likely to link to similar web series so I can’t even attack the problem with my typical “follow the bread crumbs” meandering. Which is why I’m asking you to tell me what web series you watch online.
I’m looking for everything from webisodes of actual television shows to completely original produced for online only series. I also want both series that are done by people in the entertainment industry to series that are shot by Joe Schmoe and ten of his friends. Anything and everything. Even if you gave a series a try and didn’t like it, I still want to hear about it. I’m trying to get a good mix of series so I’ll take the good with the bad.
I promise to fill you in on the project once I have it a little more organized. Right now it’s just an idea that’s begun to grow so I don’t want to talk about it too much before I figure out the scope, etc.
So please, if you’ve ever watched a series online, point me that direction in the comments below. Thanks!
And, to add a little fun to this post, here’s the latest Chuck/Buy More webisode starring Lester, Jeff, and Anna…
