Today, I’m going off the beaten path with the sports videos and I’m going to give some love to a web series that I’ve been following since last year. Granted, some web series are not very good and don’t deserve your attention, but this one does. It’s done with virtually no budget and from the first webisode through its second season, I’ve seen constant improvement. Plus, I like the cast and I like that the series shares a sense of humor with the viewer.
So over the next few weeks, I’m going to run webisodes from the series for the Videos of the Week. I’ll get back to sports in time for the Super Bowl. I have a plan, so indulge me for this month.
Some background on the series. B.J. Flectcher Private Eye won the AfterEllen contest to find the next great web series. It’s been featured on the site since last May and a new webisode is released every week. It’s about the barely competent B.J. Fletcher and her friend, Georgia Drew as they attempt to solve cases. Filmed completely on location in Toronto, it’s produced and directed by Regan Latimer. Lindy Zucker plays B.J. and the very delightful Dana Puddicome plays Georgia. I totally love this series and wanted to share it with my readers. To get more information on B.J. Fletcher Private Eye, you can head to the official website. I’ve added the site to the Friends of Fang’s Bites that you see on the left. So without further ado, I’ll give you the first four episodes of the series. Next week, I’ll post the next group of four episodes of the first season, then in two weeks, the final episodes of the first season. And in three weeks, I’ll begin posting the second season.
In this first webisode, we meet B.J. and Georgia and B.J.’s former girlfriend, Marjorie (played by Natasha Gordon). B.J. agrees to take her case, but gets more than she bargained for.
In part 2, after a night of reminiscing, B.J. sets to work in “Agatha and her Leaky Empire”. When Fletcher and George go on stakeout, they make a shocking discovery.
In part 3, Fletch decides to confront of her ex-girlfriend, Marjorie after finding out she is more involved in “Agatha and her Leaky Empire” than she’s letting on. Later as Fletch tries to wrap up the case, she brings George in on a fact-finding mission.
After wrapping up “Agatha and her Leaky Empire”, Fletch is looking forward to some time off, but her plans are cut short as trouble once again finds its way to B.J. Once again, Fletch takes a reluctant George on a recon mission.
I’ll post the next four episodes next week. Once again, for more information on the series, head on over to the official website.
