In August I received an email from Wendy, publicist for the “i can’t even” webseries about “[o]ne apartment, two friends, and an exponential number of fandoms to argue about.”
Um, yes, please.
From the first this series made me laugh. Louise Cox and Tiana Hogben, who star in the series, have great comedic timing. Every singe episode had me chuckling to myself until their were tears in my eyes.
“I’ve seen you talking to your Benedict poster.”
Their friendship is awesome and that they can live together and still be geeky friends is such a great model. They help each other out, when they can get through the fog of obsession, and they share an interest in the geekdom while building each other up and supporting that interest.
The subject matter, background production, and sets ring true and add to every scene. I love the set up of all the different fandom posters and paraphernalia in the girl’s apartment. Even the girls’ wardrobe is geeky. The homages to all the different fandoms are inclusive and wonderful. The lighting and sound production are really good and I thought the sound effects added to the production value of the series.
With 6 episodes on YouTube at only about 5 minutes an episode you can watch the entire series and it will go by as quickly as reading your favorite book on a rainy Saturday afternoon and leave you wanting more. Like, I really really want the second series, now.
Honestly, they had me at the Australian accents. This series is just… I can’t even.
Ok. I had to do that. ;)
