With Easter right around the corner, I'm reminded just how much misdirection we allow throughout our lives. The very nature of being a human is a flock like mentality that constantly wrestles with the instinct to break free and be our own individual. Even from a young age, we are led by the hand, tripping over our own feet, adults pointing at brightly colored eggs. Of course, in my family it was a pastime of my fathers to misdirect me nearly out of the yard, during an egg hunt, while stiffing a chuckle. Finding good TV is kind of like a childhood egg hunt (heck, they event have a term in the entertainment industry, 'Easter Egg'.) You can happily follow the flow of popular television and mainstream media to a certain degree, then you begin to feel the itch of discontent and boredom.
Created with the sole intent of being streamed online, then later licensed to Crackle for streaming through media devices (such as Roku and XBOX,) this show is a little rough around the edges. While the video quality is superb for a web series, don't expect professional lighting and makeup on your 54" HDTV flat screen. It's real and gritty, and that's why we like it. While promos claim that Seinfeld has at last created a show about 'nothing,' there is a bit of good 'meat' and entertainment between the facts about the featured care of the week, arguing over coffee preferences, and artsy lead in shots.
