    I don't think this sort of thing specifically has been done before, but a web series done as a companion to a running series is nothing new and web series themselves are becoming more and more sophisticated, not to mention that original series have been popping up on streaming services like Hulu and Netflix.
    So how do I watch an episode? Hulu? Youtube?

    I am confused because while I did find the first episode on Youtube, it is only 12 minutes long, are the episodes only 12 minutes long?

    I did see that yesterday and was confused by the 12 minute length. I guess they are releasing 12 minute segments. Which seems odd to me.

    10 minute segments. Each episode begins with an introduction sequence and ends with a preview of scenes from the next episode.

    I am probably confused by calling 10 minutes of a story an 'episode.' It's impossible to have a beginning, middle, and an end in 10 minutes. But saying it's the first 10 minutes of Episode 1 probably wouldn't work.

    Good morning, nerds.

    We saw Fun. last night. It was a great show, he is a really good front man, one of the best I have seen in a while. They covered You Can't Always Get What you Want, the whole show was over by 9:30. which was surprisingly early.

    We watched Drive the other night. While I enjoyed seeing Carey Mulligan (Sally Sparrow!) again (and a wonderfully violent Albert Brooks), it criminally under-used Christina Hendricks. Overall liked the movie a lot, but yeah. Needed more Christina.

    I guess it depends on what kind of story you're trying to tell, but I've seen plenty of shows, some of them web series, that manage to tell a complete story in around ten minutes or so. Hell, cartoons have been doing it since forever.

    Violent...Albert...Brooks??? I shall have to see it if for that alone! He's so often Mr. Paralyzed By Neuroses.

    I guess impossible is too strong of a word, since, yeah, cartoons do it. And Pixar does it pretty well. But I just can't imagine any sort of intelligent BSG theme being done in 10 minutes. Maybe I'll be surprised.

    The female characters in that movie were really, really dumb.

    Hostess is going out of business.

    I don't know what annoys me more; the fact that I may never eat a Ding Dong again and have to settle for a knock-off, or the fact that the company went out of business instead of paying workers.

    I am not trying to make a joke at the expense of those people, but that reminded me of the premise of Play Now getting out of paying George Costanza.
