Thoughts on new web series, First
Isn’t the chemistry between Robin and Charles brilliant? I have to say I’m really enjoying seeing Will Catlett play this very different character to Mike in That Guy (another web series from the awesome Black&SexyTV channel on YouTube).
Charles’ first date was a brilliant idea! So much chemistry was founded in that single, intimate poetry session. And if that wasn’t enough he followed it up with a home-cooked meal. Nice!
I’m also wondering so many things… Wonder what Robin’s issue is with this guy in LA. Could she be running from something? Wonder what good music will be featured on the next episode? Loved the Jordan Rakei selection. Wonder about Brock the poet, just because he’s nice to wonder about.
First was created by and starring Jahmela Biggs (Robin) and directed by James Bland (Brock), Will and Ciji Campbell (Katori) also have producer credits on the series. A truly talented team. Salutes to you all.
So now you’ve watched it, what do you think?
