An example of why indie entertainment is the future

The Louise Log, in its bite-sized offerings, perfect for watching a bit
at a time on the ride to work, or in a binge, is a well-acted, smartly
written and slyly funny short format series.
What separates this series from many like it is that it's not just
funny. As you follow along, the characters grow onto you, and their
depth is realized from moment to moment. You sympathize with their
dilemmas while gleeing at their eccentricities, in a way that shows
like Friends used to accomplish. Morgan Hallett's Louise centers the
show, and she is quickly likable in the role. Danusia Travino's bizarre
Queen Elizabeth is always a highlight. Everett Quinton's Ethelred is
both touching and stir-crazy in his performance.
The cinematography grows as the series progresses, but it doesn't
matter that the technical elements are not top notch from the start as
the format of the show embraces these faults. Director and writer Anne
Flournoy is aware of this at every step, and respects her audience
enough to honor the performances of the wonderful cast above all else.
