In the wake of two back-to-back mass murders on Chico's frat row, loner Brent Chirino must infiltrate the ranks of a popular fraternity to investigate his twin brother's murder at the hands of the serial killer known as "Motherface."
This show has so many great things, but fails. The documentary style of the production is great. The productions themselves have good acting, directing, action, editing, color, style. And shockingly good cinematography at times in the shorts.
But it proves that having everything right, and missing one key part, can make EVERYTHING fall apart. And that is, the writing. The stories just fall apart on the floor.
Without a good story for the short, it's laughable when everything else is perfect. And without a good story for the short, it's sad to watch the documentary on how much work and talent went into making something that resulted in a laughable story.
If anyone ever needed proof there was a case for sourcing scripts, and NOT letting producers and directors rewrite them just for good visuals, this is proof.
Hulu, as much as I love the service, didn't learn from their tragic failure "Resident Advisors." They don't get that they can't become Netflix or Amazon with original content UNTIL they spend money on writers before they dump a ton of cash into production.
