Friday 5: What you should be watching on the web

I know, I have a FO Friday that I still need to write, but y’all. After all the shenanigans I went through to get that bib pattern to work, I didn’t write any of it down. I mean, what was I thinking? So I’m making another one, and hopefully all my insights will just come back to me.

In the meantime, I’m trying something new. Any topic, 5 things. This one may be a little lame, but here goes. My top 5 recommendations of webshows that I think you should be watching!

These first several have a literary slant to them, all the rage these days since Lizzy Bennet Diaries came onto the scene.

  1. Classic Alice – A nerdy, book-minded college student decides to get out and live a little… just, according to some classic novels. So far, they’ve covered Crime & Punishment, Pygmalion, and a short story by Hans Christian Anderson. Currently doing Macbeth.
  2. Green Gables Fables – A modern retelling of Anne of Green Gables. Recently had a “Gilbert Day.” His dimples are epic.
  3. Nothing Much to Do (Benedick’s channel / Ursula’s channel) – Modern retelling of Much Ado About Nothing by a group from New Zealand. Sadly, it’s reaching the end, but definitely worth going back through & watching. 
  4. Frankenstein, MD – Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without the latest from Pemberley Digital. I haven’t actually read the novel, but this is making me want to.
  5. Convos with my 2 year old – Sort of the odd man out on my list, but a husband & wife who act out stories based on conversations with their now 3 year old daughter… with the help of a grown man. Hilarious.

Of course, what’s a top 5 list without breaking all the rules & adding a few more, Douglas Adams style? These shows are currently on a break, but definitely worth checking out when they come back.

Pairings – Lovely show about cooking, family and friends. They also cleverly weave in recipes that are key to each of the episodes, which I find really neat.

New Adventures of Peter & Wendy – Retelling of Peter Pan, currently waiting on the 2nd season, thanks to a successful Kickstarter!

Tabletop – For any of you gamers, Wil Wheaton plays tabletop games with his friends. I love this because it’s exposed me to games that I’ve never heard of, or that I wouldn’t have picked up otherwise. When it comes back, it’ll be on this Geek & Sundry chanel.

So, that’s my list. What do you think I missed?
