It’s not over til the champagne toast

Recently, I decided to finally give this whole web series thing a shot, what with it seeming like a trend that is here to stay and all. The only thing I’d really watched before (not counting the TV version of quarterlife, and we all know how I felt about that) was the delightful Clark and Michael, starring the delightful Michael Cera and a bunch of his famous and unfamous friends, all delightful. I started clicking around, googling and whatnot, as people do, to see what else is out there. And I found something that is just so entertaining, I must do my duty in spreading the word.

It’s called Horrible People. And it is hysterical.

Behold the first episode:

Did you see the cast members from Wet Hot American Summer and Flight of the Conchords?! Did you appreciate how much they totally nail the tone and visual style of The Young and the Restless?? Did you wonder if the actress who plays “Mother” was the second choice to play Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development? Admit it—you want more! Click here to get it. All ten glorious episodes are already released.

Other more-than-watchable series I found on my quest: We Need Girlfriends (here), Break a Leg (here), The Guild (here). That last one should especially be of interest to Joss Whedon fans, as it was created by and stars Felicia Day (the red-headed potential slayer Vi in season seven), who stars in Joss’s very own upcoming web series, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. That project also involves Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and musical numbers, because Joss wants to kill us all with awesome. That fiend.
