On day 3 of theTVaddcit’s Summer Survival Guide, we offer an intriguing web series from the folks at koldcast.tv titled AFTER JUDGMENT.
Missing that confused feeling you often get after an episode of LOST concludes? You know, the one where you say, “Dude, I have no idea what’s going on… but I can’t wait for the next episode!” Well, the web series AFTER JUDGMENT offers that same befuddlement in 3-4 minute segments. Trust us when we say that by the end of episode five, when a lead character says, “Yeah, I know what you’re thinking”, your response will be, “Really? Because I have no clue what to think!” And that’s part of what makes this show so addictive.
Revealing too much about the plot would be to ruin the pleasure that comes from letting the story unfold in its own extremely unusual way. What initially seems a confusing and perhaps not-very-well explained premise quickly reveals itself to be the kind of genius that borders on madness. Time means nothing in the world of AFTER JUDGMENT, and that proves to be true in more than one sense. Events unfold and then are revisited, often only an episode later, in a manner which shows them in a completely new light.
Like LOST, this is a series that both tries ones patience and rewards it. But here, the rewards come much quicker. By the seventh or eighth episode — and remember, each is less than four minutes — the mysteries begin to unfold. (A word of warning: Do not read the summary box that appears just below each episode as they serve more as a recap than a teaser.)
This is not a show for the ACCORDING TO JIM crowd. And trust us… that’s a good thing.
By the end of episode 5, when our lead says, “Yeah, I know what you’re thinking” we’re left to respond, “Really? Because I have no clue what to thinK!” And that’s part of what makes this web series so addictive.
