Web Series of the Week: PRETTY
This hilarious mockumentary about children's beauty pageants adds some handsome beefcake to its fourth season with guest star Kyle David Pierce, who previously appeared in the horror web series, THE INN. I look forward to seeing what happens next with his mysterious character. Also, I am loving creator Steve Silverman's time jump of 30 years, which has given PRETTY a successful facelift while still maintaining its outrageous sense of humor. And his insanely talented cast continue to make me laugh out loud - especially Stacy McQueen (Annette), Dee Freeman (Ribina), Michael Caruso (Shay), Diane Delano (Gladys) and Melissa Peterman (Candy).

PLEASE NOTE: The next Web Series Worth Watching will be on Sunday, February 22.

Other web series worth watching this week are:

The Horizon
The fifth season of this Australian gay drama continues as AJ meets Ritchie Valentine, a visiting singer from America (played by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Jai Rodriguez). Click here to watch the latest episode at FrontiersMedia.com. To catch up on the first four seasons, go to www.thehorizon.tv. You can also follow the series on Facebook and Twitter.

Old Dogs & New Tricks
Has Nathan given up on love? Does Muscles return from Ohio? Can Brad get the TV gig? And who will Ross choose - if he survives his heart attack? These burning questions will be answered in a 4th and final season of ODNT, which you can help make happen by donating to their current IndieGoGo campaign (click here). Also, check out the amusing video below to see how different the series would be without the support of its viewers.
