Beautiful all around
6 August 2010 | by FunfishfunSee all my reviews

Only reason I didn't give this a 10 was because the writing was a bit cliché for me in parts, oh and eppy 2.

Venice the series has all the ingredients for success. Beauty abounds in this web series both with location shots and the cast. Jessica Leccia is just a beauty to behold. Nadia Bjorlin is her love interest and the two of them make this show all about the pretty. They are so lovely to watch. Crystal Chappell has her work cut out for her in season 2, but looking forward to seeing the pretty that Crystal has gathered together for this project. Guiding Light's Otalia my have been the spark that got this series going, but Jessica Leccia and company have what it takes to keep it going sans Otalia undertones. Looking forward to season two and seeing Jessica Leccia shine. #FreeAni
