Web Series of the Week: Wallflowers
Written and directed by Kieran Turner, this comedy was one of my favorite new web series of 2013 - and now it has returned for a second season. The series is centered around a NYC support group for the dating-challenged, and the first episode of Season 2 introduces us to a few new characters - Jane (played by Jolly Abraham), an amusingly snarky former member of the group, Fred (Robert Bogue from the daytime soap, Guiding Light), the ex-husband of group leader Janice, and Alex (John Halbach from the web series, EastSiders), a cute musician who takes an interest in casting agent Bryce (who is now being played by Patch Darragh). The entire ensemble cast of Wallflowers is great - especially Darragh and Halbach, who have a nice onscreen chemistry, and Susan Louise O'Connor, who shines as the awkwardly sweet Rhonda. Mr. Turner has created an engaging series filled with quirky characters whom you want to spend time with, and I look forward to getting to know all of them better.

To watch the first season of Wallflowers, go to Stage17.tv, a new digital platform. You can also follow the series on Facebook and Twitter.



Other web series worth watching this week are:
