What? Best Thing You'll Ever Do
Who? Created by Monica West. Directed by Catherine Fordham. Starring: Monica West, Bhavesh Patel, Michelle Ang, Myra Lucretia Taylor and Liam Vincent.
Why Should I Watch? After launching their Kickstarter campaign in April 2016, the web series earned $15K in just three days and as if that wasn't already impressive, by the end of the campaign they raised over $31K!
So what's so great about the series? Meet Mae (West), she's working two dead-end jobs in Brooklyn and trying desperately to shake some fun into her life. So on a whim, she hops on a flight to San Francisco and things suddenly just fall into place. She meets her fiancée Sam (Patel) and begins work on creating her dream job. Things are going Mae's way until her future husband admits he can't wait to have a family with her and suddenly things are moving in slow motion for her. Mae suddenly finds herself taking advice from strangers about whether or not she should have a baby, if she should freeze her eggs and everything else under the sun you could possible think of in this situation. So what does she do? Well you'll just have to watch to find out.
The four-episode series delivers hilarious humor to a sensitive subject that everyone can appreciate. The writing from West is something to brag about and I don't say that about every web series I encounter. It's a brave series that challenges the social norms women are expected to fill and I for one am grateful to see subjects like this brought to attention in a very comical way. Don't believe me, just check it out for yourself!
