One Step Closer to Home is a satirical, bite-size online soap opera that follows the trials and tribulations, or lack thereof, of Nat and Paul Shaw, a young couple in the nesting phase: that awkward stage between the fun of 20s single-dom, and the settled domesticity of life with kids. In the thrilling ride of Season 1, Nat Cat and Pauly, as they are affectionately known to each other, traverse the volatile terrain of what to have for dinner, which print to buy from the supacentre and who's in charge of cheese and dips for Saturday's barbecue. Married life becomes very boring very quickly. In the midst of their hectic lives as newlyweds, even 'naughty time' takes a backseat.

Awesome Web Series!!!
6 June 2012 | by amanda-552See all my reviews

OK, so the first thing to note is that, while this series may seem like a pointless menagerie of 2- 3 minuted clips, they are actually very smart and funny...if you know what to look for. It isn't quite a satire, but the series definitely pokes fun of the nesting phase. The nesting phase isn't all fun and games and "naughty time" is actually a bit mundane.

I think Ryan Johnson and Alyssa McClelland do a great job of depicting a couple going through this phase. Their writing is great and I must say that the theme song is very catchy. Paul and Nat aren't too mushy nor are they completely alike in personality, which makes the story come alive a bit more. No one really wants to watch a series where the couple is sooo happy and they mesh sooo well. They are really adorable together and provide a teeny tiny bit of "conflict" (if you will) that moves the series along.

Overall, a fantastic series that shows a cool perspective on the nesting phase of life. I would definitely recommend it! Go look up their channel (OneStepCloserToHome) on Youtube for all of the episodes!
