I kept hearing about how awesome this web series was but I kept putting off watching it because well I’m not sure why, something about time commitment, procrastination, I’ll catch it at some point, yada yada. Well I FINALLY started watching it and I LOVE IT!!
I’m bringing it up now because (a) I just started watching it and (b) Season 2 starts tomorrow.
Below are the first three episodes from Season 1. They are short so watching at work is totally feasible.
I figured there was no need to include any additional episodes because if you’re not hooked after watching the third episode then forget about it however IF you are now fully engaged and want to continue on just go to youtube and have at it.

There is so much more to include about this very talented lady but I need to finish watching a few more episodes, do one or two more google searches and right now I need to bounce. Just in case you are interested click here for the Season 2 Trailer.
