duder.

Writing dialogue has got to be the hardest part of writing a script.  People are silly and strange and I think it is really hard to capture that in a realistic way. At its worst, dialogue can turn out like Juno, where people sound like the tweets of a pop culture nightmare.  At its best, dialogue turns out like duder.

duder. is a comedy web series.  It is funny and interesting and weird in all the right ways. Some deets:

– duder. is an award-winning web series about a bunch of duders who just, you know, duder around a bit.

– duder. is written and produced by Matt Kirsch, New York-based writer and web producer for the Onion. Matt plays Glen.

– duder. stars the handsome Alden Ford, who plays Ricky in the series and also edits a bunch of the series.

Here is a trailer for the series:

The season 1 episodes are kind of low quality because they are like 5 years old.  Don’t let that stop you!

The most recent episode for season 3 was posted 9 months ago, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen. But that’s ok because seasons 1 and 2 are so good that I’ll just rewatch them over again.

Battleground and Veep

Battleground is Hulu’s first original scripted web-series.  It is a mockumentary about a state senate campaign in Wisconsin.  Battleground is a comedy with a few poignant or serious moments here and there.  The show focuses on the campaign manager, a few staff members, and a young volunteer. New episodes on Tuesdays!

I love politics; I’m a huge West Wing nerd.  And I especially love political satire: In the Loop, The Thick of It, Dr. Strangelove, even some aspects of Parks and Rec hit the mark.

Another political show on the horizon is Veep. Coming to HBO in April, it stars Julia Louis Dreyfus as the Vice President (and Anna Chlumsky from My Girl and In the Loop and Tony Hale from Arrested Development). The show is sure to be hilarious, due to Armando Iannucci’s involvement (creator of The Thick of It). Here is the new trailer:

 

PS: Jack De Sena from Dorm Life plays Cole Graner in Battlefield! What a small world!

DORM LIFE!!!!

I hope that my title expresses how much I love the show Dorm Life.  Because I love Dorm Life.  I love it. LOVE it.

It is the most watched web-series on Hulu.

Dorm Life is a mockumentary about the students who live on floor 5 South.  It was created by former students of UCLA. The show is like The Office, with a little Jim-Pam romance, and some crazy characters (omg the RA!).  If you ever feel like you miss college, this will take you right back!

There are only two seasons and the episodes are five to ten minutes long.  Get started today!!!
