Will this be your new favorite web series?


Looking lost me as a fan before it ended. I think the sour taste it left in my mouth was the reason I haven't given Cucumber or Banana a chance.  Maybe I need a break from gay oriented television drama and go back and examine some of the web series that are out there. For this, I will need your help.

I'd like to thank Gay Times Magazine for pointing this new web series out to me. Taking place in San Francisco, Paper Boys is the story of … well, I'm not sure yet.  Will it be about Cole finding himself and love?  Will it be about Daren losing love, but finding himself, too?  So yeah, they're "Looking" for themselves, but this one has a little bit of magical twist that is easy to swallow.

Currently there are only two episodes out there and they're hoping to make more.  The webisodes are short, but that's what a web series is usually made up of, short videos that match our attention spans. 

As mentioned, there are only 2 episodes at this time with a Kickstarter to fund future episodes.  So watch, but if you get hooked and the new episodes don't occur, don't come yelling at me.





Wait, what, no sex?  No drug use?  No social "dating" apps?  Are we sure this is gay?  It's actually a breath of fresh air to just be simply entertained.  I'll watch the next episodes, if they happen and being gay oriented, I am sure the sex, apps, and other common topics of our lives will be included.  I guess I should go over to their Kickstarter  and make a donation.  You can learn a little more about what they are looking to do with the series there, too.

So are you hooked? Not worth your time?  If it they make more, you'll watch, but you won't go out of your way? We all have our own taste in entertainment.  If Paper Boys isn't for you , what web series are?  Do you have a favorite one that I can binge watch on a rainy summer day here in Florida?  Either post your likes here or go back to this blog entry on Facebook and give your choice of web series a shout out.  Maybe we can help some other quality shows get a little more attention, a little more followers, and who knows, one may turn into the next successful offering on cable tv.

    Well directed and written.. I'm sold, and hope it's a hit… Would love to see more!!!

  2. I am VERY surprised, I liked

    I am VERY surprised, I liked it. 

    Usually, sadly, gay shows are horribly acted (why iiissss that???!) but this one was done very well, in fact! Also, the backdrop of San Francisco is WAY BETTER portrayed than in the show Looking from HBO. Honestly, honestly– this is a GREAT show!!! 


    ..One tiny bit of constructive criticism: It verges on being slow at points. Almost. If the pace were picked up just a notch, it would be perfect! …But again, fantastic job!!! Can't wait to see more!!!!

  3. I love so far & I am hooked.

      • Jed, it can be about him if

        Jed, it can be about him if he wants.  I did ask for recommendations for other web series.  And I am not sure if we can tell if he's a whore or not just from his posting here. We may need more information.

        • I’m a she. πŸ™‚ And yes, Jed.

          I'm a she. πŸ™‚ And yes, Jed. Adam did ask for reccommendatons.  Thank you, Adam, for backing me up! I hope you get a chance to check out Crave! I hope you enjoy it.  If you do, feel free to share it with your friends! We're looking to raise money to produce the rest of the first season via Kickstarter! Thansk again! 

      • So RUDE!!! …He is just

        So RUDE!!! …He is just trying to spread the word about his work. He is an artist, too! Be a little supportive. Man! Then to call names, like you are an ill-mannered child. Be nice. ….When people totally spam, especially about spell-casting and work at home on this site, that is annoying and rude, but posting about an independent project similar to what is featured here, is totally fine. How else are we going to make it? We have to help each other through this life.  πŸ™‚ 

        • —Quick correction: She, not

          —Quick correction: She, not he. I misread her original post and was unfamiliar with her name. πŸ™‚ …Either way, I hope her work goes very far!!! 

          • Thank you Fineas! πŸ™‚ Β Yes, it

            Thank you Fineas! πŸ™‚  Yes, it is important to support ALL artists! There are so many stories that need to be told so why should only 'big hollywood' get the attention?  I am so excited to put my series out there for people to see.  It is a new kind of trans narrative, one that I think people will really love.  Thanks again, Fineas, for backing me up!  To the hater: the author ASKED for other recommendations. I love sharing my work and can be opportunistic, but I'm not a troll.  Or a whore. How rude! craveoriginalseries.com for those of you who are interested! 

      • P.S. My show is actually

        P.S. My show is actually getting some positive recognition.  So, I hope you check it out. And please, stop being mean to people. There's already so much negativity in this world….

        Yes. Now I'm making it about me. πŸ™‚
