Storyline

The show, based on creator Adam Green's real life and set in his small hometown of Holliston, MA, follows the lives of Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet and dealing with life and the opposite sex in their post-college jobs at a Boston area cable access station where they also host a late night movie program called "The Movie Crypt." The core ensemble is rounded out by Joe's girlfriend Laura (a morbid yet adorable aspiring artist) and Adam's ex-girlfriend and the greatest heartbreak of his life Corri (a gorgeous nurse and aspiring country singer). The other main characters on the show include Adam and Joe's boss Lance Rockett (a cross-dressing 54 year old lead singer for a Van Halen tribute band still living the 80s glam metal lifestyle) and Adam's imaginary friend Oderus Urungus (an alien who lives in his closet and advises him on his life... badly). Often referred to as "Friends" for geeks and... Written by FEARnet

Best Sitcom with horror jokes and gore! worth every minute
29 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Holliston is an excellent sitcom for horror fan!

Starring Adam Green & Joe Lynch, Holliston is a funny sitcom that reminds me of How I met your mother ... with a little gore!

With some dirty or politically incorrect jokes, with Dee Snyder from Twisted sister being hilarious, many cameos from horror actor such as Kane Hodder, Tony Todd or Danielle Harrisson! Holliston has become one of the best TV show i've seen in years! I couldn't stop laughing out loud!

Might not have enough gore for my taste, but mind the details, this show is awesome! If you like horror/gore related TV show, your should check out the following : Death Valley, Todd and the book of pure evil, Reaper !
