    I always find it pretty amusing when people are apalled that I haven’t seen “Breaking Bad” or most other shows.. Like it’s a foreign concept that I actually have a life and don’t sit in front of the TV every night..

    I agree with the comments that this web series, along with others like it, give a skewed look at young gay life in New York City. But I would challenge those who keep feeling the need to make those kinds of comments in every web vid series mentioned on here to take your more honed creative talent and produce a more realistic web series. You’ll be in a stronger position to make critical commentary if you do.

    I know this series’ concept doesn’t seem revolutionary, but neither are most network family comedies, legal shows, hospital dramas, etc.

    And let’s be logical: many young aspiring film-makers and performers are likely to move to a city like New York to try to get their start – which makes it likely that they will shoot on location there. They’re likely to base their shows on their own lives in their own neighborhoods, and they’re likely to work with their friends and their friends’ friends. At the current cultural moment, this is going to result in a certain amount of web content being made by and about young white people in New York. This is the same reason why there are several web series about aspiring Broadway performers (Submissions Only, It Could Be Worse, etc): because aspiring Broadway performers are writing, producing, and acting in them. And there’s nothing wrong with their doing that.

    I also don’t see any reason to suspect that Towleroad is deliberately neglecting web series with gay content made by and/or about people of color. If anyone follows shows like that which are off the radar so far, let the rest of us know!
