Your Next Addiction: H+ The Digital Series

Hubby was watching a show on YouTube earlier this weekend and it looked really intense. When I asked him what it was, his response sent me running back to my mailbox to sift through my emails. I had received a pitch about the show earlier this summer but deleted it without watching. Oops. Big mistake. Luckily for you, I am rectifying that now.

H+ The Digital Series is an online-only series with a high production value and a great story line. Produced by Bryan Singer (House MD, Xmen First Class, The Usual Suspects) and executive produced by John Cabrera (Gilmore Girls), the show runs in short, intense 5-6 minute episodes, available on YouTube.

Here's a super short synopsis: Everyone in the world embeds computers from one major manufacturer into our bodies, which connect us 24/7 and display virtually before our eyes a la Minority Report. The system gets a virus. Chaos ensues.

Are you still here? Reading this? Seriously, what more do you need?

I know that TV premiere season is upon us, but come on, there is no way you are going to find anything as awesome (and short) as this. I think it has the potential to make every other show seem just way too long and drawn out, even if you normally skip the commercials. They uploaded the 16th and final episode last week but I can't help but wonder if it will be rebooted or what comes next. This thing packs a punch. Like 24, if the episodes had been condensed to just the essentials :)  (No offence intended to the supreme being that is Mr. Jack Bauer. *and she was never heard from again*)

Here's the first episode for your viewing pleasure. Clocking in at 6 minutes, it's shorter than some of the TED talks I've posted. And it's totally worth it. Once you're hooked, head over to check out the whole series on the H+ The Digital Series YouTube Channel.
