The Bi Line: Ringing In the New Year with @BIFLseries from @kleffnotes

Happy New Year’s Eve lovely readers! I am writing this article on my cell phone in Dulles International Airport. Krista and I went to Ohio for Christmas and found our connecting flight home cancelled. Our new flight is slated to go out tonight, but we did wind up unexpectedly spending the night in the DC area. With our schedules we have both been too busy to really watch anything, but we found ourselves with a rare night in with no work the next day and finally binged BIFL on YouTube. I have watched parts of the series before and even reported on it way back when it was just a script, but this binge reignited my love of these fantastic characters.

Kappa Force @REVRYTV Review from @kleffnotes

The college experience has been portrayed in hundreds of movies and television shows, but Kappa Force takes the idea of college and gives it a queer and satirical twist. State University seems like the perfect example of an all American campus, but that image is shattered once you learn that The Douche has plans to take down the members of Kappa Force. Yes, the villain’s name is The Douche and he thinks this is a great choice, if that helps you to understand the high levels of campy hilarity that fill this series. Continue reading “Kappa Force @REVRYTV Review from @kleffnotes”

The Third Dekkoo Series Review from @kleffnotes

Dekkoo presents a new and provocative series, The Third, that showcases nontraditional families and ways of life. The show focuses on Jason, a twenty-nine year old gay man, who has sort of unexpectedly found himself part of a triad relationship. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this sort of relationship type, the series You, Me, Her has touched on it slightly. An established couple brings in a third person to be part of their relationship in both of these series, though this is not always how a triad is created. In this case Jason has found himself attracted to two men who are already in a committed and primarily monogamous relationship. Continue reading “The Third Dekkoo Series Review from @kleffnotes”

Interview with Gretchen Wylder from @kleffnotes

I had the chance to chat with Gretchen Wylder, the creator, writer, and one of the core characters of the web series These Thems. Her series uses humor to examine and discuss topics of queerness, gender identity, coming out, sexual empowerment, and so much more. In her series, Wylder plays Gretchen, who after realizing she might be a lesbian, befriends a nonbinary dog walker named Vero.

Rounding out our interviews with the cast of Running With Violet, I had the chance to talk with Jessii Vee. The actor and YouTuber plays Frankee, the slightly witchy babysitter from Season One who has started to find new skills this season. She was one of my favorite characters in the first season and I was excited to see she was back for more one liners and epic levels of snark. I got to chat with her about this new season and what she’s up to outside of the series. Continue reading “Interview with Jessii Vee from @kleffnotes”

Insomnia Web Series Review from @kleffnotes

The darkly comedic web series Insomnia drops the final episode of the limited series today and to get you ready for the final episodes I wanted to share my thoughts on the show so far. Set in New York City, Insomnia follows bisexual, Indian American writer Nikhil Sharma as he tries to figure out his life. Shown through single camera, the story follows Nikhil in his secret work as a male escort where he is confronted by issues of race, sexuality, loneliness, and just general lack of sleep. The series was inspired by a brief real life encounter when creator and star of the show, Vishaal Reddy, was asked by someone in NYC if he had ever considered being an escort. After seeing a lack of positive representation in the media he took this idea and evolved it into Insomnia. Continue reading “Insomnia Web Series Review from @kleffnotes”
