Studville TV Season Two Review

Studville tv Season 2

Web-Series: Studville TV

Genre: Drama/Comedy

Overall Web-series Rating: Green/Blue

rating scale - green-blue

Studville TV is about a group of studs that call themselves “the crew” and are based in Atlanta and they are back for a second season. The new season begins by updating us on what has been up with each member of the crew since Season one. Each of our main characters has a new lady in their life but our old femme “girlfriend” stars are featured in the first couple episodes, providing a transaction from old to new. Throughout the season we see how “the crew” moves on with their lives and the struggles that they are presented with. The second season tackles more issues that were not seen in Season one and also touched back on some old ones. As the season goes on, we see new studs being added to the cast and becoming a permanent fixture. Making for a very intriguing season. Read Complete Review

Web-Series: Skye’s The Limit

Genre: Drama

Overall Web-series Rating: Blue/Purple

rating scale - blue-purple

The series is about a writer, Skye telling us about what she has been through in her life for the past six months. The story starts with her speaking to the camera expressing to us that she is a writer that has one hell of  a story to tell based on what has happened in her life for the past six months. She makes it clear that the story has been changed to protect the innocent and the ‘trifling’

Is it a spoiler if it happens in the first five minutes of the show? Well to be on the safe side, something that turns her life upside down happens and she is unable to recover as quickly as people think she should. She is pulled up on her feet and that’s when it gets really interesting and the true story starts.

This story is set in the Washing DC area, which is refreshing because most LGBT series tend to be based in Atlanta. As the story goes on, more and more characters are introduced, and you slowly see how Skye comes into contact with them, slowly developing the story-line. It makes you wonder though, if Skye is telling the story, how does she know the details of events that she was not apart of, I guess that will be revealed as the story goes on.

Web-Series: Studville TV

Genre: Drama/Comedy

Overall Web-series Rating: Green/Blue 

rating scale - green-blue

Studville TV is about a group of studs that call themselves “the crew” and are based in Atlanta. It begins with the story being narrated by one of the characters, introducing you to the members of “the crew”. After the introductions of the stud characters, it cuts to a scene of each stud in a bad situation, which is of course at the hand of their femme and at the end of those scenes each person asks “how did I get here?” I most commend their start, it grabs you instantly, you find yourself asking, “how did they get there?”, especially once the series gets started and you get to know the characters better. With each episode, you see yourself looking for clues that would lead to these endings. Is it that you don’t see it coming? I wouldn’t say that, its more of seeing the beginning and knowing how it ends, makes you more keen to filling the empty space.

Ratings!

So as I have stated multiple times, the rainbow flag colours will be used as my rating system, but I think I should provide you with a better description of each colour/rating. I even busted out the Photoshop skills for this one.

rating scale - red

Red – Not worth it, like seriously, I am not even joking if I drop a red rating on anything – that’s about it nothing more to say, just move on.

rating scale - red-orange

Red/Orange – Seriously flawed but there is just something that doesn’t make it down right horrible

rating scale - orange

Orange – It is bad but with some potential, some spark, some something – sometimes you can’t quite put your finger on it

rating scale - orange-yellow

Orange/Yellow – It’s bad, but with potential that you can recognize

rating scale - yellow

Yellow – True potential – the flaws can be looked over

rating scale - yellow-green

Yellow/Green – Nice, interesting

rating scale - green

Green – Good

rating scale - green-blue

Green/Blue – Very Good, this rating anything above has my personal seal of approval

rating scale - blue

Blue – Fricking A – whatever is rated is getting an A+

rating scale - blue-purple

Blue/Purple – This is as close to perfection as it could get

rating scale - purple

Purple – This is perfect – if anything gets this, nothing else needs to be said, just pure perfection

 

So this is the break-down of how web-series will be reviewed, movies and books were basically the same thing, but web-series will be a little different. Well first the good news, web-series reviews will be once a week……..till I run out of web-series of course.

On to the more confusing news, web-series will be rated into three ways……web-series that are complete or have complete series that I have watched, will have one review for the entire season in question. So those reviews, will give you an overview of the entire season, the characters, the story-line. So that is exactly what I will be rating: overall, characters, story-line, as well and the acting and production quality.

Then there are those that have been completed or have a complete season that I have yet to watch, those will receive two reviews, the first of which is a “First Look Review”. My girlfriend and I had a system where we would watch the first three episodes of a series and decide from there if we would keep watching, I am going to apply that system to any new web-series that I come across. So after watching the first three episodes, the review will give a breakdown on the impression so far, the characters, the story-line and the overall quality. Then once I finish the series, will compare it to the first look, the improvements and the progress of the story-line.

So for the series that are currently going, they will get an episode by episode review, depending on how far in the season the series is, I might do one post with all episodes reviewed or do a review of the series so far.

Overall I really want to focus on reviewing the quality and story-lines of the web-series, along with their entertainment value. As always my rating system is the same which will be the rainbow colours, we use six colour is our rainbow flag: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. So red will represent the lowest rating given (sorry all those red lovers out there) and purple for the highest rating. Some ratings might be a double colour rating: yellow/green, basically it hasn’t gain green status but is still better than a yellow rating, basically it would be like a .5 when using a number rating system.

I have a list of web-series under by belt that I plan to review, but as always I am open to suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
