The Bonus Special of Gay Web Series 'The Outs' is Here: VIDEO


When we last spoke with creator Adam Goldman, he had said he was going to be working on a sort of "capstone to the series" in the form of a 'Chanukah Special' which would tie up some loose ends.

It's here now, and fans of the web series won't be disappointed. Alan Cumming even makes an appearance, as himself.


If you haven't been following this six-episode, Kickstarter-funded serial, here are Episode 1, Episode 2Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5, and Episode 6 which you may want to catch up on.

  5. I'm really impressed with the whole series, and this last episode was fantastic. The voice over at the end was just perfect. I'm so sad to see it end, and I sincerely hope this is not the last we have heard of these characters.

  6. Thank you Adam and all involved. Such a great series. I thought we'd seen the last of these characters, so this was a welcome surprise.

  7. Love it to teeny little bits.

    Why isn't Adam Goldman more famous and clebrated than Lena Dunham ?

  8. Very smart the way they did the whole thing -- and also holding back this bonus episode. I can't tell if it's just my imagination, but I think I enjoyed this one most of all.

    Not one negative comment? On Towleroad? Perhaps it's just early.

  9. Amazing writing, performances and real heart. Really hoping it has a shot at being picked up by HBO or Showtime. Just incredible work. Congrats to the team from The Outs for writing about gay life with such insight, humor and pathos.

  14. Sad to see a wonderful series come to a close, but it came to a great close. I, too, feel it helped to have the finale be seen months later. I have a certain fondness for the characters, and it was nice to see this coda.

    It's really one of the best web series ... not that the bar has been raised terribly high. But this one really was sweet, funny, insightful at times, had characters and performances that grew on you, and boasted very good production quality. Good job!

  15. I have no idea why a few commenters were all bitchy about this series in previous Towleroads. A few little writing and directing missteps maybe here and there along the way, sure. To be expected in this kind of work. But the acting was uniformly fine all along. And by this episode you really know a lot about the characters and the complexity of their histories together. OK, some of the characters are written maybe a bit too similarly cleverly amusing. But real life friends also can sort of develop a group comedy style. I've seen it happen. I've even known a bunch of straight people that were hilarious in a similarly snarky way with each other. Overall, nice job.

  16. Excellent as always. I'm so sad this series is over and done now! Sigh, it also makes me miss my 20s lol.

  17. By far, the best episode of the series. The characters are really fleshed out here. Thanks for adding a queer Asian into the mix. From Vancouver no less! These are characters I'd really like to see more of.

  18. Had to remind myself to breathe. Amazing work.

  19. Awesome episode. Loved the 'duder' crossover - makes me happy that the makers of these two great web series know each other.

  20. I think it was good. The other ones were a little better, without gimmicks like frat boys and successful blogs. No offense Towle.

  21. Really a fun series and a wonderful conclusion. Like others posting, I do hope that we see more from these folks. There is a lot of talent in that group!

  22. Best ep ever.

  23. My favourite episode definitely.
    Great dialogue.

  24. This was *THE* best!

  25. Such a REWARDING show. It captures so many things that have just simply never been shown before on any TV series. And I love how it shows how complicated relationships have become, simply because of the way we're all connected to each other.
