The final episode of the gay musical web series, "Six Months for Six Weeks" by songwriter John Coons and filmmaker Alex Berry has been released.

Beginning back in September, this 6-part, semi-autobiographical miniseries tells the story of two twenty-something men in Portland, Maine and their six-week ‘relationship with an expiration date.’ It’s set against 2009’s ‘Question 1’ gay marriage debate.

Write the filmmakers, “Alternatively tender and satirical, it looks at the definitions and value we place on relationships in our changing world.”

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Wonder how long before general distribution? Hope/suggest Netflix to add to their queque?? - maybe even Redbox??? I am going to suggest to both, Netflix and Redbox -- anyone else...

  2. The music tends toward blandness, there's nothing really memorable, but it's not without some talent. I've not seen the other episodes and I'm not sure I could sit through them. This production seems to be self-indulgent. Sing a song and keep it moving, I kept thinking to myself. Cut the fat. I don't want to sit through somebody's pompous psychodrama. This musical (based on this episode) hasn't been thought out in terms of what gives an audience pleasure. It's all about itself -- and it's ideas are small and pedestrian. The guys rubbing noses and acting in love is really beyond sufferance.

  3. Not to be Debby Downer, I found this unwatchable. I basically agree with Will, and navel-gazing has never been enough of an inspiration for a truly "meaningfull" work. They're missing a bigger picture here. And please, better music, OK?
