The opening "funny" stares to camera with the "laugh dammit laugh!" music were cringeworthy and almost made me stop watching. I'm glad I did, though, because it was amusing. And fascinating to watch. Michelle is playing herself, pretty much. And clearly there is a lot of her in Phyllis. Her little girl is adorable, too (picking her nose lol), and all this adds up to a scripted 'reality show' which is exactly the kind of thing she is militating against in the scene with her agent! Meta Michelle.

I'm not really one for soap-stars web efforts, but I'll tune into episode 2 to see how it progresses. MS has presence. And, yes, her hair color is very becoming.

Well it is promising. The production values seem higher than VR's kickstarter promo, that's for sure.

She's definitely talented. But the writing, eh. Do these writers understand that a script needs polishing? And then some more polishing? There are tons of 'cute', 'nice', 'interesting' shows out there, but you've got to work to make yours unique. I feel the episode was kinda direction-less.

What about the views? What's the goal for a series like this? Does MS know that a webseries needs promoting beside a quick mention in a TV Guide interview? Last time I checked it had 350 views. Seems an awfully low number.

YouTube takes awhile to add up views. For example, it already has 448 likes and only 11 downs. That's a lot of feedback. The same thing happens when new music videos hit. Day 1 is really low and then it catches up on Day 2. For example, her coming soon video already has 13,000 hits. Like any shows, the intro is going to be slow - have to introduce who's who, etc. It was pretty funny. MS seems like a pretty grounded person - she drives a BUICK SVU, for goodness sake! Also, there is no need for comparisons to VR - both women are unbelievably talented. I hope they both find huge success.

I see. Well my webseries got 20,000 views for the first episode in a couple of days and I'm a nobody. I just think what these shows lack is good old fashioned promoting for obvious reasons, I hope MS knew better as to allocate some money in the budget for promoting.

Sorry, I didn't mean to compare the two of them exactly. I was just taking MS's work as a parameter for what a professional actress's webseries can look like, if that makes sense. I like both VR and MS, even if they can supposedly be a piece of work bts (but then again, I can be a piece of work too at times, so I can't blame them).

Hotness, what's the link to your webseries?

I really, really enjoyed this. I'm a sucker for the mockumentary style cinematography & editing. This was really well done and I'll continue to watch! I had no clue MS was so funny. Never was into her/Y&R before.

She owes a big debt of gratitude to Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm, that's for sure.

And Cynthia Watros' web series which was probably a blueprint.
