Friday Finds – Web Video
This week, Friday Finds takes a look at Web shorts.
The Guild begins its fifth season as Codex and the rest of the guild head off to the gaming convention. This series, created by Felicia Day, tells the offline adventures of a group of online gamers. The series is funny, even if it perpetuates some of the stereotypes of online gamers, though it does it to the extreme. The first episode of season five is available through MSN, or on the watchtheguild website.
The Mercury Men is a science fiction web series running through Syfy. It follows the adventures of Jack Yaeger and the League as they face off against the titular menace in the 1970s. Filmed in black and white, the series is sharply produced and well written, both of which create a cool 1940s serial feel to the episodes. The series is currently in the fifth episode, with new episodes available Mondays in Syfy‘s website.
