Streamy awards

Over the last year or so I have become a big fan of watching “television” on my computer. In particular, I have become hooked on the many web series that have appeared almost out of nowhere.

There are so many cool things online these days; it is hard to keep track of them all. I don’t even try, but I am always excited whenever I find a new web series that I like.

Some of the web series that I have really enjoyed this year are Dr Horrible’s sing-along blog, Anyone but me, and Joni and Susanna. I am sure I would also love new series like Gemini Division, but because of all the stupid GEO blocking, I cannot watch them.

Now that web series and other forms of online content have become much more popular, there’s now also an award show involved: the Streamy awards. Nominees include a lot of stuff I have never heard about, but are dying to discover.

Joss Whedon’s Dr Horrible Sing-along blog is nominated in about 10 different categories, including best comedy web series, best directing and best editing.

The Battlestar Galactica webisodes are also up for a few awards. Haven’t watched any of those, because I am so behind on my BSG watching. But I’m sure it’s good.

So what web series are you watching? Let me know as I would love some cool suggestions.

Angel of Death...not sure if you can get it. Also, can you get The Guild? One of the funniest and most clever online shows around.
Let me know. My son's friend is a geek and he owes me big time.

I would love to watch Angel of Death, but once again, it's GEO blocked.

I am sure there's an easy way around it, but I'm not that much of a tech geek.

Haven't heard of the Guild, but will check it out.
