Whatever this is. is a Web Series Worth Watching



Web Series of the Week: Whatever this is.
The creatively brilliant Adam Goldman, whose first web series, The Outs, was one of my favorites of 2012, has written another show worth watching. Whatever this is. follows two young production assistants in New York - Sam (played the The Outs' Hunter Canning) and Ari (Dylan Marron) - who, in the first episode, are working on a new reality series about the Real Housewives of the Upper East Side. Meanwhile, Sam's girlfriend Lisa (Madeline Wise) is looking for a job to help pay the rent on the apartment that the three of them share.

Canning, Marron and Wise are all outstanding as is the supporting cast, which includes two other Outs actors - Sasha Winters and Tommy Heleringer. However, the fabulous Lusia Strus (whom I adored on the web series, Jack In A Box) steals the show in her guest appearance as "Housewife" Donna, who says my favorite line: "Gay people have so many feelings." Yes, we do - and my feeling about Whatever this is. is that it's one of the best new series of 2013.

Other web series worth watching this week are:

Ave 43
This deliciously twisted soap opera continues with its 57th episode, in which Randy joins Debbie, Mike and Sabine's "family", Phil calls his daughter, and Scampers makes a new friend. If you haven't watched Ave 43 before, I recommend that you start at the very beginning on its YouTube channel. You can also become a fan of the series on Facebook.



Bloomers
This sitcom becomes much more dramatic in its latest episode, in which Yolanda finally snaps and confronts everyone with a gun during a photo shoot. To catch up on Bloomers, visit www.BloomersTheSeries.com. You can also become a fan of the series on Facebook and Twitter.




Child of the '70s
In its two-part season finale, this comedy series pays homage to the TV series, Rhoda, as Carlo marries Joe (let's just hope their marriage doesn't end like Rhoda's did to her Joe). For more Child of the '70s, subscribe to its YouTube channel. You can also become a fan on Facebook.




He's With Me
This comedy series about a straight man and a gay man who become friends continues as Martin and Ted bond at a gallery exhibit. For more HWM, subscribe to its YouTube channel. You can also become a fan of the series on Facebook and Twitter.



In Transition
Margaret Cho's web series about a group of women recently released from prison continues as Marla persuades her financial manager Barry to help her get rid of her problem, while Tawny is reunited with her man, Bobby (played by JP Pitoc, whom I fondly remember from the 1999 gay comedy, Trick). For more In Transition, subscribe to Margaret Cho's YouTube channel.




Steam Room Stories
In the latest episodes, one guy celebrates his GAY birthday, while another reveals that he visited a bathhouse. For more hot hunks, check out the series on Gwist, YouTube's gay network. You can also become a fan on Facebook and Twitter.




Where the Bears Are
This groovy gay comedy continues as the guys cross paths with disgraced former county coroner Susie Collins (played by a hilarious Loretta Fox), who is now coaching a gay men's rugby team - and David LaFlamme (the sexy face of the popular app, Scruff) takes a shower as one of the players!
