Considering most of the Screen Junkies staff is made up of former PR reps and current porn addicts, the word “pride” doesn’t come up too often ’round these parts. Nonetheless, we take great pride in presenting the first episode of Girl Crazy for your viewing pleasure.

Written by and starring Elisha Yaffe and Dan Cohen, Girl Crazy is an original comedy series about shy, neurotic guys and the girls they are too afraid to talk to. If that sounds like it was copied right from the show‘s website, that’s because it was. Like I said, some of us used to be in PR.

The show features an ensemble cast including Codi Fischer, Ann Maddox, Holly Prazoff (UCB LA), Alison Becker (Parks & Rec), and Jenna Lyng. More importantly, it’s very funny. So watch it, and when you’re done, click here to check out some Girl Crazy shorts.

I’ll keep it simple — Web Series’ suck.  They’re poorly written, poorly shot, poorly acted, and almost always involve zombies or 20-somethings hanging out in an apartment. But that’s what happens when you, me, and that random guy on the street are able to post our own series on youtube instantly, only to watch the plentiful 356 views roll in. It’s just the nature of the medium…99% of the time, anyhow.

There are actually a few gems out there that might keep your mouse away from the dislike button. Are are my 6 choices for web series that are worth watching.

The Guild

The Guild is hands down the best web series out there.  Set around the real life members in a World of Warcraft guild, Codex (Felicia Day) decides she and her guild members should all meet in person and, naturally, hilarity ensues.   The great thing is you don’t have be into World of Warcraft to enjoy it (though it is marketed towards Gamers).  It’s not so much about the game as it is the relationships that develop from them meeting each other, and having Geek Goddess Felicia Day as the star doesn’t hurt either.  Now in their fifth season, it should only take you a few hours to completely catch up.

RCVR

If you like the X Files (which I know you all do), then RCVR is the web series for you.  Set in the 1970s, we follow Weber (Daniel Bonjour), a government agent tracking down a crashed Air Force jet in Rural Arkansas.  Naturally, the closer he gets to the answers, the stranger things become. Produced by Machinima, RCVR has some of the best web series production quality I’ve seen so far.  If you’re into conspiracies, UFOs, and little green men, RCVR is well worth it.
