Web Series Worth Watching: The Season Finales of Submissions Only and Wallflowers



Web Series of the Week: Submissions Only and Wallflowers
The words "Season Finale" always depress me because I know my favorite series is coming to an end (temporarily), but I'm also excited by the likelihood that something dramatic - good or bad - will happen in the story. So two of the best web sitcoms (in my opinion) - Kate Wetherhead and Andrew Keenan-Bolger's Submissions Only and Kieran Turner's Wallflowers - recently aired their finales, and I must congratulate them both on their outstanding seasons.

Submissions Only, which tells the addictively comedic tale of NYC actress Penny Reilly and her best friend, casting director Tim Trull, had a terrific third season that centered around a romantic triangle between Penny and her Broadway co-star Serena Maxwell and the man they both loved - the adorable Aaron Miller. And I think any fan who watches the finale will be quite pleased with how everything turns out for this captivating trio. Also, we get to see a reading of the new Thomas Edison musical, Light Me Up!, Agnes (played by the scene-stealing Marilyn Sokol) gets a summer gig, and the glorious Judith Light makes an amusing guest star appearance. It's a fabulous finale!

Below is the episode trailer, and you can watch the entire episode at BroadwayWorld.com. You can also follow Submissions Only on Facebook and Twitter.



As for Wallflowers, which is about a NYC support group for the dating-challenged, I enjoyed its first season, but its sweet and sexy second has been even better. Actor Patch Darragh took over the lead role of casting agent Bryce Hunter and made it his own, and Bryce's new romance with musician Alex (played by John Halbach) has been a highlight of the season. And in the finale, Sarah Saltzberg (as Daisy) and Gibson Frazier (as Martin) both shine as their characters each deal with relationship drama. I can't wait for Season 3!

To catch up on Wallflowers, go to Stage17.tv. You can also follow the series on Facebook and Twitter.



PLEASE NOTE: The next Web Series Worth Watching will be on Sunday, June 29.

Other web series worth watching this week are:

Bloomers
I'm so happy that this engaging comedy/drama about a group of L.A. friends is returning for a third season. Click here to donate to the series' Indiegogo fundraising campaign, and you can catch up on the first two seasons at www.BloomersTheSeries.com. You can also follow Bloomers on Facebook and Twitter.



Other Men
The pilot episode of this new series introduces us to Jerry (played by Nathan Carroll), a young gay man who falls in love with a playwright who betrays his trust. It's a sad story, but I am curious to see what happens next. You can follow Other Men on Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter.



People you Know
John Dylan DeLaTorre and Baltimore Russell of OW Productions will kick off Gay Pride Week in New York City with the launch of their new web series, People you Know, on June 23. Cast member Pandora Boxx (of RuPaul’s Drag Race) will co-host the premiere at Industry (355 W. 52nd) with live music performances by Mister Chase, Danny Blu, Collin Marrero and others, who all contributed to the soundtrack.

People you Know is an edgy and provocative series that follows eight friends in New York City as they strive to discover love, achieve their dreams and survive the drama. In addition to Pandora - who plays Adora Jarr, a twisted bartending version of herself - the series will feature the fabulous film critic and actor, Steve Hayes (Tired Old Queen at the Movies, Trick).
