The TVLine-Up: 5 Web Series Worth Watching

Here are a few things we learned this week on the web: If you dress your kid in cute moccasins and your last name is Kardashian, you can offer “advice” to moms on the Internet; the guys of Insane Clown Posse are good sports, except when it comes to a dude kissing them; and Saturday Night Live‘s Christine Nangle wants to have your baby.

Aim High | This is a particularly bad day for Nick. He’s on the run from a Russian mercenary and the Mob, and his whole high school despises him because he spoiled the senior prank.

I Wanna Have Your Baby | Saturday Night Live‘s Christine Nangle launches a web series that follows the exploits of Dolores Santangeli, a woman who will have your baby if you can’t. Lots o’ NYC comedy talent fills the first few episodes, including Mike O’Brien, who guest stars in the latest episode as a sketchy back-alley doctor.

7 Minutes in Heaven with Mike O’Brien | Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J channels an angry PTA mom who hates ICP, while Shaggy 2 Dope wants nothing to do with this end-of-the-show kissing stuff. Seriously, don’t touch him.

Kourtney’s Mommy Blog | E! Online brags that Kourtney Kardashian brings “A-list know-how” to a computer near you with her brand-new series that collects what she has learned from her first-time mom experience. The premiere episode deals with a subject near and dear to every (celebrity) mom’s heart–what is H&M featuring this season in outerwear for 2-year-olds? In the second episode, the reality star opines about how “the energy used to make plastic toys is worse than [the energy used in] making wooden toys.” I’m gonna keep watching to see if I can figure out what “A-list know-how” is.

Pretty the Series Turns out Michael was an ’80s bad boy who went by the name Champagne Toast. More importantly, Genie Francis is back!

    My favorite web series is called Platoon of Power Squadron. I discovered it on YouTube. It’s about four roommates in their twenties who live in Chicago. They are all in dead-end jobs and trying to figure out what to do with their lives. And oh yeah, did I mention they all happen to have superpowers?

    The show, which has five multi-part episodes so far (of a planned ten episode arc), has been in ongoing production for a couple of years, and the quality has improved dramatically with each episode. It’s funny, suspenseful, and original storytelling with great production value. I’m a huge fan, and obviously I recommend it highly.

    You can find it on YouTube here:

      Agree! And have to add that the characters are great. Both originally and as they develop throughout the series. And the smaller characters are included in this quality of depiction :)

    • What Martha said! I love PoPS, and I’m so happy that they’ve started up filming again because it won’t be much longer until the next installment pops up (pun intended).

      Also, this is in pre-production, but there’s going to be a webseries launching on YouTube (and its website) soon called Job Hunters. It’s a comedy about a dystopian society where recent college grads have to compete for jobs in a battle to the death from 9am-5pm, and then the rest of the time is spent in government housing with fellow competitors. So basically the show’s going to focus around roommate issues with people that could basically kill you the next day. I think this is a pretty cool concept, and I can’t wait to see the finished product!

      (Their Twitter is @WatchJobHunters if you want more updates. Also, the director of PoPS, Jake Jarvi, is also on Twitter @PoPSJakeJarvi)

    Thanks for the post, I’ll check some of them out. I have to admit, I’ve never heard of them.

    Anyway, I am one of those guys that like visual effects. So there are three as of yet uncompleted series I reconmend: The Resistance (distopic rebellion series), Once Upon by YouTube star Mysteryguitarman and super hero series Platoon of Power Squadron.

    It is awesome what is possible today. Webseries may be one of the top ideas of the internet.

    I have seen a few of these and they are pretty good. I also am a huge fan of Consequences The Web Series. It’s about 8 ex-convicts in support group to help them reintegrate into society.

    Just watched the trailed of Platoon of Power Squadron and it looks Amazing!! Great effects…

    Definitely recommend 7 Minutes in Heaven, Mike has a few episodes available and no two are quite the same (minus the closet setting of course :-D)

    Whoop Whoop FTW!!!11
