Webseries Love: ‘Call Me Katie’ based on The Taming of the Shrew

Y’all, here again to spotlight another cute webseries I’ve fallen in love with. I don’t like it as much as any of my hallowed eight, but it’s romantic and fairly fast-paced and the leads have good chemistry together. Call Me Katie is loosely based on Taming of the Shrew and is somewhat similar to 10 Things I Hate About You. If you’re like me, you just want to see the Good Stuff, i.e. the leads interacting with each other, so here’s the first instance of that.

Your Next Romance Show: Classic Alice

Webseries have rapidly become my go-to for romance in the desert valley of television that is summer, and I’m in love yet again…this time with a series I initially rejected. Classic Alice starts out slow, and I recommend skipping around a little bit in the first two episodes, but by episode three it really kicks into gear and rapidly becomes charming and wonderful.

Alice is a university student who agrees to help out a friend by filming a documentary in which she reads and attempts to live out some aspect of a series of classic novels. The first two she does are Crime and Punishment (she commits a crime) and Pygmalion (she undertakes to makeover an engineering student to surprising results). Also, one of the characters is in love with Alice…and then two are. Delicious. You guys, have I ever steered you wrong? For your reference, I love The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, and am not particularly fond of either Emma Approved or Frankenstein, MD, which I found to be underwhelming. The first ten episodes of Classic Alice have aired (you will want to make it to episode 10, trust me), and new ones come out every Tuesday.

The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy

If you are a cynical human being, head for the door, because the adorbs is strong with this one.

Still around? Good.

Because the producer of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has a new show out, and it is completely worth your time. It’s very loosely ┬ábased on Peter Pan, though really that’s just an excuse to have some off-the-wall characters who live in a small town called Neverland in Ohio. It’s less romantic than LBD (though really, everything is less romantic than the Darcy/Lizzie romance), but it’s funnier and faster-paced; some of the one-liners and terms coined are GEMS (“hipster spinster”). Watch it. Fall in love.
