TV Review: LEGAL FOX: A TASTE OF TRUMP, USA Drama/Comedy

LEGAL FOX is a three-minute reality-style comedy web series where an (absolutely stunning) attorney tackles bite-sized moments of real legal cases and provides snippets of legal explanations behinds their in’s and outs’. In this episode, our heroine tackles Trump- but nothing too heavy. She discusses the gag’s and spoof cases-  The Onion slandering him in their online publication for example.

 

Our heroine has it all- brains, beauty, camera appeal and excellent poise under pressure. Clearly a learned host, she takes on legal issues and explains them to the laymen is a fun and easily digestible format. A delight to watch and a gem to subscribe to.

TV Review: CROW’S PEAK, USA, TV WEB SERIES/Animation/Comedy

A four-minute USA animation web series, this cute and innocent cartoon follows a young vampire and his Frankenstein’s’ Monster friend, that get invited to a party that goes south. They think they are going to a party that will boost their social standing- but they are actually in danger of being hunted, and mounted on the Host’s wall.

 

Bright, colorful, full of wonderful voice acting and adorable antics what really sets this piece apart is its fantastic structure. In four short minutes we see an episode that has stakes, goals, a setup, themes, motives, and a gun in act one that goes off in act three- all while being humorous, cute and fun for all ages. In four minutes, that is an absolute feat. A wonderful web series that ensure many giggles, CROWS PEAK is a delight to watch.

TV Review: COOL GIRLS “HOW TO THROW A GIRLS NIGHT OUT”, Canada, TV WEB SERIES/Comedy

This sweet and comical eight-minute Canadian web series comes follows one Alpha female and her sweet shy friend Terri as they navigate a meet-cute gone awry. After utterly bombing trying to get a cute guy’s attention by “accidentally on purpose” stealing his hat, Amber convinces her friend that she needs to end her long distance relationship and join her for a girls’ Night.

 

What is most enjoyable about this comedy, is the character-chemistry that carries the show. The antics are just slightly over the top for the modern millennial and the result is like looking into a funhouse-mirror version of a 20-somethings Instagram account.

 

Big, bright, loud and awkward this piece is still relatable to all ages. Although this piece is certainly about millennials, every generation can relate to wanting to bust free of the “modern humans” rutt and break the mould of their own life. Join the ride with COOL GIRLS and watch them take on the world- one crazy hurdle at a time.

TV Review: HEINOUS GIRLS, Canada, TV WEB SERIES/Comedy

This five-minute comic web series hailing out of Canada from director Eugene Smirch tells the stories of two underprepared adults who revile in their inability to handle their lives. After spending their paychecks on drugs and party hats, the girls team up for some quick cash and taking on a gig to kill a man- but they have no idea how to go about it.

 

Part glitter, part puke and part gleeful comic train-wreck, HEINOUS GIRLS boasts hilarious comic performances. Hold on to your hat and keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle, because these women are on a wild. The best part about HEINOUS GIRLS, is that, as a web series, the fun never has to stop.

TV Review: SOUNDS OF FREEDOM, USA, TV WEB SERIES

 

SOUNDS OF FREEDOM is an emotional film about two people, touched by war and violence, who both suffer from PTSD from their experiences. This USA web series is a strong reminder of the human cost of war- beyond the statistics of death and the tragedy of loss of life- SOUNDS OF FREEDOM will remind you that many battle scars cannot be seen. Director Holly Chadwick does an excellent job of utilizing both sound and silence as characters that act upon our heroes- bringing them right back to the horror they’ve experienced.

 

In only five minutes, we are taken on the painful roller coaster of what it means to be psychologically scarred by violence. The medium of film has been effectively used to create the sense of static panic and helplessness felt by sufferers of PTSD. Dramatic, thought-provoking and powerful, SOUNDS OF FREEDOM will rock you.
