Over the past few years the number of online web series have grown. I have to admit that not all web series are great and to be honest some of them are just plan horrible but their better than some of the programming being offered on network TV today.
My latest guilty pleasure is watching Shayla Hale and Andra Fuller (LA Complex) go at it on the web series RoomieLoverFriends. The series is written and directed by filmmaker Dennis Dortch (A Good Day To Be Black And Sexy). The series originally launched in 2012 and season one of the has 9 episodes.
Now To be honest, I just finished watching season one. I know…I know…I’m a bit late but hell…A good thing is still a good thing…late or not. LOL
RoomieLoverFriends centers around Tamiko (played by Shayla Hale) and her love-hate relationship with her roommate Jay (played by Andra Fuller). As season one progresses, viewers are witness to a lot of emotionally charged interactions between both Jay and Tamiko. One minute their arguing and the next their all hugged up. It’s crazy but extremely fun to watch. By the end of season one we’re left with a lot of unanswered questions which is not a always bad thing. LOL. I love a good cliff hanger.
One of the best parts about finding great web series late is not having to wait a long time for new episodes. According to RLF Facebook page, episode one – season two of RoomieLoverFriends premieres on May 18, 2013.
The Final Word
I love this show. RoomieLoverFriends is a great example of that type of creative and original programming that is currently missing from network TV. It’s funny, interesting, and ground-breaking. The millions currently being spent on Reality TV could fund multiple web series just like it. Wishful thinking yet still optimistic.
What are you waiting for? Check out season one of RoomieLoverFriends below.
