Web Series Worth Watching: Get Into The Outs
Click here to vote in the Second Annual Groovy Awards honoring the best web series of 2012.
Web Series of the Week: The Outs
One of 2012's best web series continues with its penultimate episode, "Significant Others", in which Mitchell tries to find a man for a friend, fights with Oona and receives some bad news. Meanwhile, Jack kisses Scruffy and gets some good news. And now we only have one more episode to enjoy in early 2013 - The Outs Chanukah Special. I do wish creator Adam Goldman would continue to entertain us with his wonderful characters, but I won't beg...very much.

I've never been a big fan of the Western genre, but I did check out the web drama, Thurston, this week - and I really liked it. The series, which takes place in a remote mining town in the 1880's Kansas Ozarks, is centered around Maggie Callaway, an independent lady with a secret past. Actress Catherine Fields is great in the role, and I was also impressed with the drama's production values, which make you feel like you're back in the Old West. But what will keep me tuning in is the writing by creator Kathryn O'Sullivan, who knows how to tell a good story with interesting characters.
Below you can watch the first three episodes of Thurston's first season. And for more information on the series, go to www.thurston-series.com. You can also become a fan on Facebook.
