Storyline

Lucas Frost is a former All-American with a Stanford PhD and a sweet gig teaching literature at Westwood University. His younger brother Eddie is a gambler with a dusty old trailer in the middle-of-nowhere Arizona. And while they may seem nothing alike on the surface, and may in fact profess to hate each other, the Frost brothers share a common propensity for making mistakes. On the same day that Lucas gets fired for having an affair with his Dept. Chair's daughter, Eddie gets chased out of Arizona by a crooked vice cop with a grudge. But things are about to get worse for the Frost brothers - because their father has just committed suicide, and he's left them an awkward inheritance. On the one hand, they get their childhood home back in Bakersfield and a not-quite worthless Rare Book Shop. On the other, they also inherit dad's $600,000 debt to the Chinese mob.

Great!
29 November 2011 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching Chapter 4 of "Books." Wow! This show is all around really great! Love the writing, directing, the production values and the performances. And it just keeps getting better and better. The actors are growing on me, too. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I really like the two lead characters. They provide a nice balance because they are so different from each other. And the crazy guy at the bookstore was perfect. Looking forward to the future chapters/episodes! It would also be a good fit for HBO or even the network. It feels like "Entourage" without the an entourage. I'm curious to see how things will play out. There's a little mystery going. I hope they keep them coming. Probably one of the best web series I have seen of this kind. It's got plenty of drama, but it's funny, too.
