Addictive Series of Events

Mr. Michael Blowhard wrote this piece on Friday, December 1st. It concerned a Pittsburgh-set and Pittsburgh-made web-based dramedy involving a non-profit radio station WANT. It's been on the web for 4 "seasons" now. Initially, it has the feel of Richard Linklater's Slacker, only set in a more hilly city. But, after the first 2-3 episodes, it seperates itself from the impersonal short quips of Linklater's film to an insightful look into the 4-5 central characters of the dramedy. A slow but certain addiction follows for the viewer. The background music, ostensibly a broadcast of the fictitious WANT station, is sly and is woven into the fabric of each episode.
Thanks to Michael for the link to Something to be Desired and to the loss of a good part of the weekend.
