What to Watch: 5 Web Series Worth Checking Out

I Hate Being SingleThis week, I Hate Being Single concludes its stellar first season, SNL‘s Fred Armisen proves he’s a decent drummer, expensive tech gadgets go up in flames for no particular reason, and much more!

I Hate Being Single | In this hilarious two-part season finale, Rob joins a man cult where dudes in scarves and hoodies are taught how to live in a “sea of uncommitted bliss.” We can’t wait to see more from Rob Michael Hugel.

Jan | This soap-y web series features Sideways’ Virginia Madsen as a renown photographer-slash-horrible boss to title character Jan (Catlin Gerard), with True Blood’s Stephen Moyer playing a coupled-up actor who may be developing a tiny crush on Jan.

Bandmates | This odd three-episode series features improvised jam sessions with SNL‘s Armisen and House‘s Charlyne Yi. In the final episode, Yi listens patiently as Armisen lists everything he expects to get out of being part of a band, including “the ability to make sound.”

Squaresville | Zelda (Mary Kate Wiles) reconnects with a childhood friend who has since fallen in with a bad crowd.

Can You Grill It? | The folks at Pork Barrel BBQ toss tech gadgets on the grill and then rate how well they burn. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen an Amazon Kindle Fire flame roasted.

  • I absolutely LOVE Jan. It’s so good. I actually like Stephen Moyer on there a lot more than on True Blood. Maybe it’s because he uses his natural British accent?

  • No mention for The Guild? I’m disappointed. I also love The LXD, Fresh Hell and Husbands. There’s also Bloomers, The Booth at the End, The Lizzie Bennett Diaries and the upcoming Auror’s Tale.
