New Webseries: “Shakes,” a Modern Adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet

Don’t tell anyone, y’all. I’m about to start ANOTHER webseries. Perhaps this weekend I’ll do a roundup review of all the ones I’ve seen recently, because it’s become quite the sickness. I can’t help it! There’s romance! Adaptations of my favorite Austen novels and Shakespeare plays! There’s easily-accessible viewing on Youtube! What’s not to love?

I just found out about this one, which is a mashup of Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet,  with Beatrice and Benedict as the main characters, a journalism student and young lawyer, respectively, and and am going to start the first episode tonight!
