Web Series Worth Watching: The Series Finale of The Cavanaughs

Web Series of the Week: The Cavanaughs
After four seasons and 41 episodes, The Cavanaughs comes to an end with a surprising secret - courtesy of Rebecca - and, of course, a few friendly cocktails at their favorite bar. Created by the talented Adrian Morales, this web series has offered something for everyone over the years, including some groovy gay kisses, many deliciously soapy storylines, and quite a few poignant moments. And no other web series has ever featured a character as fabulous as Noreen Cavanaugh (played by the equally fab Ginger Snappz). But let's not get too blue over its finale because Morales will be debuting a brand new spinoff series in February starring Ms. Snappz, Grant Landry (Mark), Daniel Rhyder (Scott) and Emily Sandack (Rebecca), which I'm looking forward to!

Other web series worth watching this week are:
I highly recommend this new dramatic web series created by award-winning playwright Kit Williamson. The first episode introduces us to Cal and Thom, a gay couple who have been together for four years - AND they have a cat. But their relationship has become rather strained due to Thom's affair with a sexy guy named Jeremy. EastSiders paints a believable picture of a couple in crisis that is both painfully sad and darkly amusing, and the performances by Williamson and As the World Turns' Van Hansis as Cal and Thom couldn't be better. It also doesn't hurt to have the handsome Matthew McKelligon as the shirtless Jeremy. Last week after watching its intriguing trailer, I predicted that EastSiders might become my next web series addiction - and now I can definitely say that it has.

In the latest episode of this sexy dramedy, Ryan has an awkward brunch with Rosa and Liv, who don't care much for each other. And later he works at a party with fellow porn actor Julien (played by a hot and hunky Facundo Rodriguez).
