Review: THE BITTER END, a comedy webseries

Posted by Luc / April 20, 2010

You know what really sucks? Surgery in your mouth. I'm talking serious surgery here...like say when they have to insert titanium screws into your gums so you can get implants because you smashed some teeth out in a freak accident back in December.

But you know what's a mixed blessing? Watching a hilarious online sitcom and laughing your ass off even though it hurts so, so much to laugh because your mouth is still swollen from the surgery. This is what happened to me while reviewing The Bitter End, a locally produced web series that made me actually "LOL" so hard, so many different times.

Written by the stars of the show Daniel Beirne (Bernard) and Brent Skagford (Les), as well as Director Etan Muskat, all 6 chapters offer a refreshing blend of slapstick comedy mixed with clever storytelling. It's about two brothers forced to live together while one tries to get his life back together after getting out of rehab and the other pursues a writing career.

Each episode foreplays its audience with an intricate storyline before culminating in a massive climax. That's right, it's got a lot of sex jokes too, from the obscure internet porn references (BigNaturals.com...ya, I know you know what I'm talking about), all the way to the old confusing-wordplay-leads-to-sticky-situation routine. There are also SO MANY Die Hard references, including some footage of Hans Grueber falling to his death from the Nakatomi Tower intercut with an Ipod falling to its death from a balcony.

This show is basically a Montreal-Indie version of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, except the audience gets to connect a lot more with the main characters since there are only two of them. It's a nice blend of neurotic fast paced scenes along with cute/serious moments (which I won't give away...OMG reveal!) that really made the low production value un-noticeable by the 3 minute mark.

So if you like fun (you fucking better) and you like quotes such as "kick his fucking ass with poetry...slam his head off!", this show is for you.

Check it out! Now!

I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this during my
hunt for something regarding this.

I see so many styles of phpoograthy and admire not only your work, but that of so many other talented photographers. Each of you have developed a unique style and I'd love to have some insight into how you (and even they) have discovered your artistic style. I'm still trying to pin mine down :)

Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations?
Bless you!
