Web Series Worth Watching: The Season Finale of Secrets
Web Series of the Week: Secrets
I enjoy this gay soap opera for three main reasons - creator Damian Tracy knows how to keep his series moving along with dramatic confrontations, surprising plot twists and fun cliffhangers, there is a good amount of groovy gay kissing, and it certainly doesn't hurt to have actor Larry Emeigh (who plays Miles) frequently remove his shirt - which he does in each of the final two episodes of the season. That's enough to keep me watching - and I look forward to more Secrets.

Other web series worth watching this week are:
This delightfully twisted soap opera continues with its 43rd episode, in which Walter discovers a gun, Joy shares her pancake, and the identity of The Diddler is finally revealed! 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.
This addictive drama continues as Sara gets spooked when the lights go out, the mystery woman (guest star Fiona Hutchison) realizes her mistake, Brian receives some unexpected help from a stranger (Matthew Ashford), and actor John Reilly (General Hospital, Passions) joins the cast as Mortimer, Sara's butler.

This quirky comedy continues as Jesse begins her new job as a waitress and Shara learns some surprising news about Ellie and Jesse's mother. For more Fumbling, go to www.fumblingthruthepieces.com. You can become a fan of the series on Facebook and Twitter.
It's been a year since we last saw this mysterious drama about a remote island in Maine, which ended its first season with a bizarre tragedy at the Annual Lobster Days Festival. And now as the second season opens, Homeland Security agents arrive on the island to begin their investigation of what they believe to be a possible terrorist attack. With its strange but intriguing story, Ragged Isle definitely makes me want to tune in to its next episode.
