5 Youtube Miniseries You Should Be Watching
YouTube is the home of viral videos, music you're too lazy to buy on iTunes, and a huge amount of cat videos. But it's also home to some seriously promising series that bring the laughs, the tears, and the intrigue (although mostly the laughs). Read on to see five series you should be watching.
'Billy on the Street'
Billy Eichner is responsible for the most hilarious street harassment you'd ever have the honor of recieving. Running around the streets of New York, the comedian yells in citizens' faces about Debra Messing and other celebrities — and the result is so funny, you'd hope for the assault.
'Escape From Brooklyn'
Since the Bustle offices are in Brooklyn, this series carries special weight amongst our staff. Escape from Brooklyn — about a woman (Sue Galloway) attempting to travel from Brooklyn to Manhattan — is original and ridiculous (my favorite combination).
'The Misadventures of An Awkward Black Girl'
Oh my god, I want to be J, the main character on this web series about the life of, well, an awkward black girl. I also wish I was dating the series' White Jay. (Just watch and you'll understand.) It is actually impossible to sit down and only watch one of these episodes, so be prepared to spent a night getting familiar with the show.
'Jake and Amir'
It's amazing how the entire time you watch this you'll want to both cuddle and strangle Amir. But this show — about a couple of friends, played by College Humor's Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld — is perfect remedy to a long day at work, school, or whatever else plagues your life. Plus, Jake is kinda attractive.
This trippy sci-fi series about a future in which computers have been transplanted in people's brains is for nerds. So the first episode of the web series might leave you confused, but don't let that turn you away. Stick with the series, and, trust us, you'll be happy with a capital H(+).
