Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is a 2008 musical tragicomedy miniseries in three acts, produced exclusively for Internet distribution. Filmed and set in Los Angeles, the show tells the story of Dr. Horrible (played by Neil Patrick Harris), an aspiring supervillain; Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), his nemesis; and Penny (Felicia Day), their shared love interest.
The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and writer/actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The team wrote the musical during the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike. On October 31, 2008, Time magazine named it #15 in Time's Top 50 Inventions of 2008. It also won the People's Choice Award for "Favorite Online Sensation", and the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. In the inaugural 2009 Streamy Awards for web television, Dr. Horrible won seven awards: Audience Choice Award for Best Web Series, Best Directing for a Comedy Web Series, Best Writing for a

Auto-tune the News is a U.S. web series popularized by Brooklyn musician Michael Gregory and later the band The Gregory Brothers. The Gregory Brothers digitally manipulated recorded voices of politicians, news anchors and political pundits to conform to a melody, making the figures appear to sing. The group achieved mainstream success with their Bed Intruder Song video which became the most watched YouTube video of 2010.

Michael, who graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in music and a concentration in recording and production, first created a "debate musical" using footage of the first presidential election debate of 2008 titled "Debate Highlights—in song and dance."

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is an interview series on Funny or Die hosted by Zach Galifianakis. Zach conducts interviews with popular celebrities between two potted ferns. The show is filmed to resemble a low-budget amateur production fit for public-access television. He maintains an awkward and sometimes antagonistic demeanor with his guests, asking them bizarre and inappropriate questions mixed with off-handed non sequiturs. Episodes have included segments in which Galafianakis awkwardly interrupts his guests to promote a stick deodorant.
Discussing the show on ABC News Now, Galifianakis said "The sycophantic way that Hollywood machine runs -- it's fun to make fun of it. That's how 'Between Two Ferns' started." Guests aren't told what will happen in advance according to Galifianakis, "They sit down, they agree to come. There is no discussion beforehand...It just happens, no real prep, no organization whatsoever." He said "inappropriateness is really fun to me...That is kind of the take on 'Between Two Ferns' -- inappropriate humor."
The show started as a short film on Scott Aukerman & B.J. Porter's Fox sketch pilot "The Right Now! Show," a spin-off of their Comedy

Arthur has run-ins with barely legal teens, over-emotional actors and surprise escorts. Aided by his therapist, and friend, Chandler Brown (Pete Chekvala), he attempts to navigate through this complex love life (and, accordingly, his on-stage meta-life).
The Young Turks is a Progressive Internet news and political commentary program via live web stream and YouTube, as well as a weeknight news and political commentary program airing on Current TV.

Web Therapy is an improvised online (and later, television series) starring Lisa Kudrow as Fiona Wallice, a therapist who has conceived of a new form of therapy: the titular "web therapy".
Fiona Wallice is a therapist who has conceived of a new "modality" of therapy: the titular "web therapy". In her estimation, the traditional "50 minute hour" version of therapy gives people too much leeway to talk about irrelevant things. By dramatically shortening session time, she hopes to get results more quickly. Her sessions take place via webcam over the internet using Skype. They are taped in the hope of attracting investors into promoting her new technique as a worldwide therapy option.
A dark comedy, much of the humor revolves around Fiona's obvious self-interest and how it overshadows her legitimate ability to suss out people's issues quickly and effectively. (For instance, in "Sibling Ribaldry," she manages to completely clarify a couple's romantic emotional issues in thirty seconds but does so only to bring them around so she can then film them discussing more trivial sexual issues that are more shocking.)
In April 2010, Showtime announced plans to adapt the online episodes for
Jake and Amir is an American comedy web series created by and starring CollegeHumor writers Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld, and set in New York City. The two play humorous versions of themselves: Jake is depicted as a usually sensible "regular guy", and Amir as his annoying, obsessive and odd co-worker, the pair acting as a comic double act. The series began on May 23, 2007, and new videos are currently posted every Tuesday to CollegeHumor's website and the series' Tumblr blog. The series won a Webby Award in 2010.
Jake and Amir is one of CollegeHumor's longest-running series. The series began with Hurwitz and Blumenfeld making short comedic videos on their own; though both of them were CollegeHumor employees, the videos were just a hobby, posted on Vimeo. As they grew more popular, CollegeHumor began incorporating them into its website as an original feature, collaborating with the pair to create further episodes.
The series generally takes place at Jake and Amir's desks, though occasional episodes will move to other parts of the office or even a different location altogether. Some episodes have a common theme or MacGuffin that the episode revolves around (i.e. buying a guitar,
Red vs. Blue, often abbreviated as RvB, is a set of related comic science fiction video series created by Rooster Teeth Productions and distributed through the Internet and on DVD. The story centers on two opposing teams of soldiers fighting a civil war in the middle of a desolate box canyon (Blood Gulch), in a parody of first-person shooter (FPS) games, military life, and science fiction films. Initially intended to be a short series of six to eight episodes, the project quickly and unexpectedly achieved significant popularity following its Internet premiere on April 1, 2003. The fifth season of the original Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles series ended with episode 100, released on June 28, 2007. Three mini-series—Out of Mind, Recovery One, and Relocated—and the three-part Recollection trilogy containing the full-length Reconstruction (2008), Recreation (2009) and Revelation (2010) series (Seasons 6-8) have extended the plot. Project Freelancer beginning with Season 9 (2011) follows two separate stories: a continuation to the Recollection trilogy and a prequel set before the events of The Blood Gulch Chronicles. The two stories are continued in two further mini-series—MIA
Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC. is a production studio located in Austin, Texas of the United States that specializes in the creation of live action shorts, animated pieces and machinima, or films created using real-time, interactive engines from computer and video games. The name Rooster Teeth is a euphemism for Cockbite, an insult used in one of the group's trailers. Originally, the group ran a website called drunkgamers.com, a reviewing site in which Burnie Burns, Gustavo Sorola, and Geoff Ramsey reviewed video games while drunk to try to get games from video game developers. Burnie Burns also created voice-over-enhanced gameplay videos of Bungie Studios' popular first-person shooter video game Halo: Combat Evolved. Eventually, these videos led to the creation of Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles, an award-winning comedic science-fiction series that was announced in May 2002, premiered on April 1, 2003 and ended on June 28, 2007, with the release of episode 100. Red vs. Blue gained a huge fan base and, while it is still ongoing and continues to be the main focus of Rooster Teeth's work, they have also branched off into numerous separate projects, including live-action

The Nostalgia Critic is a web television series starring Doug Walker as the eponymous reviewer. The series initially launched on YouTube in 2007 before moving to an independent site, That Guy with the Glasses, run by production company Channel Awesome.
The show involved the Nostalgia Critic, often referred to as simply the Critic or NC, reviewing mostly nostalgic media in a negative (but humorous) manner. This mostly concerns movies and television series from the 1980s, '90s, and early 2000s but he had on occasion made exceptions for movies and television series that were released before 1980 and after 1999.
Most of his reviews were for films that were critical failures, although he has negatively reviewed some critical and audience successes such as Moulin Rouge!, Signs, and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Walker announced on September 14, 2012 that The Nostalgia Critic had ended its run as a weekly show, but noted that the character is not entirely dead, and will occasionally reappear.
The series focuses on the eponymous character, an ill-behaved, insulting, sarcastic, foul-mouthed critic raised by pop culture. The Nostalgia Critic usually only reviews movies that were
$5 Cover is an online series created by filmmaker Craig Brewer and produced by MTV and is a fictional series created to complement the documentary series "$5 Cover Amplified".

The show is described in MTV's official press release:

The show aired on MTV as 30-minute episodes and on MTV.com as short webisodes.
The show aired with a series of companion documentaries called "$5 Cover Amplified".
00Bama on Atom is pretty much what you expect; a web series about our 44th president moonlighting as a secret agent. Where SNL has failed in stretching sketches into feature length movies, 00Bama seems to have succeeded at turning a pun into a simple, slick, and fun web series. It was a refreshing choice by the talented writer / director Todd Berger to mimic high-end action movie like the Jason Bourne franchise. Most web series that ironically embrace shoddy production and ultimately collapse under the weight of their self-indulgence. Speaking of self-indulgence, how ‘bout that last sentence? Episode one (episode one) is a great example of how Berger maximizes the premise of the series. A simple interrogation scene of a would-be terrorist lets the audience see the 00Bama character in action with out much plot getting in way. Consequently, the two subsequent episodes suffer a bit because of a too much plot. »

You Suck At Photoshop is a series of online Photoshop tutorials with adult-themed humor designed by Matt Bledsoe and Troy Hitch of the Big Fat Institute for Advanced Interactive Design; hosted at My Damn Channel. The show started as a one-off parody of instructional videos and became popular almost overnight; since its debut in December 2007, the first episode alone has received over 4.2 million views on YouTube, over 600,000 on My Damn Channel, and garnered national attention in Time Magazine.
Episodes typically star fictional Photoshop user Donnie Hoyle, who demonstrates tools and techniques in Photoshop, usually on a Macintosh computer. Donnie is a person with severe and chronic personal problems relating to his job, his relationships and disintegrating marriage; various legal problems, career and emotional problems; which tend to weave themselves into the narrative to dark comedic effect. Each episode's title card is further distinguished by a different misspelling which can be interpreted as part of the joke of each episode or is spelled so as to suggest an off-color reference. Further clues to Donnie's state of mind can probably be inferred from the ever-changing desktop

"2 28" is based on a once anonymous blog that was started on February 28th, 2008.
The blog chronicled the day to day emotional roller coaster of suddenly testing positive for HIV. From an onslaught of doctor visits, an out of control viral load and a deteriorating relationship, the blog became a means to divide the fear, destruction & hopelessness that life had suddenly become into an outlet for which there was a degree of separation from the negativity & depression the virus built around it.
The web series evolved from this blog and attempted to stay true to the journalistic nature of the entries while maintaining the emotional immediacy that the new world and turns of events created.
Intercut with the visuals & spoken entries is a simple story of a small boy who enters the narrator's life much in the same way as the news of HIV: sudden & without purpose or logic.
The boy soon plays as a metaphor to the fragile, unstable nature of the virus and, much in the same way, how the narrator navigates this ongoing relationship and finds balance between destruction & harmony becomes a delicate & seemingly insurmountable objective.
"2 28" strives to recreate a modern visceral & American experience of fear, questioning & hope that is brought on by this now thirty year old pandemic.

Ahmed and Salim is an animated web series created by Or Paz and Tom Trager. The series is a satirical parody on religious fundamentalists, or, as the creators define it: "A sitcom about terrorists". It first debuted on the 20 January 2009 and has since become an internet hit with over 2 million views and worldwide fans.
Tom Trager and Or Paz are Israeli animators and comedy writers, born circa 1990. They both write, story board, animate, edit and voice the characters from an apartment in Herzliya. Though the show looks very anti-Islamic at first, Trager and Paz claim to have no real political agenda other than just "making people laugh". The satire in their show is not aimed at Muslims, but at all the fundamentalists who take religion to an extreme place. The two met during a high school film production in 2006 and created web sketches (both live-action and animated) in Hebrew until their big break with Ahmed and Salim in January 2009. Tom Trager is a graphic designer and a satirical columnist and Or Paz is a graphic designer and a video editor.
Another of their series, The Shtreimels, pokes fun at ultra orthodox Jews in a similarly crude manner.

Angel of Death is a web series of eight to ten minute episodes created by Ed Brubaker. The series stars Zoë Bell as Eve, an assassin taking revenge on her former employers, and costars Lucy Lawless. Angel of Death was produced by White Rock Lake Production and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. The episodes were released on Crackle from March 2 to March 13, 2009.
The show is a thriller about the assassin, Eve, who is employed by a ruthless crime family. After suffering a severe head trauma (knife through her head) while on the job, she begins to hallucinate and becomes haunted by her victims. As a result of her injury, Eve is driven to seek revenge on those who ordered the hits in the first place—her mob employers.
While developing the story about a cold-blooded killer growing a conscience, Brubaker's original idea for the series was a hitman afflicted with brain cancer, but then remembered watching a scene in an old PBS documentary series where a patient walked into the ER with a hunting knife stabbed right through his skull, and drew inspiration from that for Eve's head injury. Angel of Death is Brubaker's first online series.

Happy Tree Friends is an American Flash cartoon created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff. The show has become a popular Internet phenomenon and has achieved a cult following.
As indicated on the official site, it is "not recommended for children under 17". Despite its childish appearance and cute name, the show is extremely violent, with almost every episode featuring blood, pain, and gruesome deaths. The portrayal of death in Happy Tree Friends is usually graphic and exaggerated, depicting bloodshed and dismemberment in a vivid manner. The episodes last from between 1 to 7 minutes.

Shot on a shoestring budget, Leave to Enter is the debut production from Room Enough Productions, a company started in 2009 by Sean McConaghy, David Palliser and Jon Baldwin.

MTV Unplugged is a TV series showcasing many popular musical artists usually playing acoustic instruments. The show has received the George Foster Peabody Award and 3 Primetime Emmy nominations among many accolades.
The term Unplugged has become a term used to describe music usually heard on amplified instruments such as electric guitar and synthesizer that is rendered instead on instruments that are not electronically amplified, for example acoustic guitar or traditional piano, although a microphone is still used.
The word became incorporated into the title of a popular MTV series that began in the 1989/1990 US TV season, MTV Unplugged, on which musicians performed acoustic or "unplugged" versions of their familiar electric repertoire. Many of these performances were subsequently released as albums, often featuring the title Unplugged.
The underlying concept behind the Unplugged series has been attributed to the popularity among musicians of a variety of informal musical performances on stage, film, television and record in earlier decades. The casual "in-the-round" sequence in Elvis Presley's 1968 Comeback Special, and The Beatles informal studio jams documented in the 1970 film

James Gunn's PG Porn is a web series created by brothers James Gunn, Brian Gunn, and Sean Gunn.

NYC cop Dave is a nerve wreck. He can't take the big city anymore, and wants to go some place calm. But the place he thought was quiet and sweet, is actually something quite.. odd. Welcome to Oddfjord.
Space Race was created out of a desire to develop an exciting and entertaining concept for our children, and also make it educational. The idea came to us on a family trip we took to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Our kids headed straight for the gift shop on arrival, and couldn’t stop playing with a toy Space Shuttle and rocket ship as we explored the museum. We thought, wouldn’t it be cool to create an animated series about spaceships flying to different planets in our Solar System? We spent a year working on the story, and then another six months on the designs and visual imagery of the Space Race world. We hope you enjoy it, and that it also can be a vehicle for kids to learn more about Space, math and science.

"Festival favorites Jill Bennett and Cathy DeBuono (Out at the Wedding, And Then Came Lola) once again ignite the screen, this time as a sexy, professional couple who seem to have it all. But relationship therapist Susan (comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer) doesn’t need a PhD to see that emotionally uninhibited Kit (Bennett) and uptight know-it-all Dyna (DeBuono) can barely stand each other for a single session, let a lone eternity.
Just as Kit is about to walk out the door and move in with her queerish sister Cindy, the duo’s co-written relationship guide How to Succeed in Marriage Without Even Trying tops the best seller lists, and Kit and Dyna make the professional decision to stay together.
Soon, a documentary film crew invades their home to capture the successful couple in all their merriment, newly evicted stoner Cindy moves in, and the pretense of happiness becomes a full-time job. A lingering carnal attraction is the only thing left going for Kit and Dyna. But, hey, maybe that’s enough when angry sex is this good.
Director Robyn Dettman’s engaging vignettes string us along as the humor and mischief build. Packed with sexy stripteases and vibrator miscommunication, We Have to Stop Now is a wacky but down-to-earth emotional rollercoaster likely to remind you of your most dysfunctional (yet likeable) queer friends."

Zero Punctuation is an ongoing video game review series created by comedy writer and video game journalist Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw and published by the online magazine The Escapist.
The series began when Croshaw created two video reviews, one for The Darkness demo for the PlayStation 3 and the other for Fable: The Lost Chapters for the PC and uploaded them on YouTube. Among other organizations, The Escapist contacted Croshaw and offered him a contract shortly thereafter. Since then Zero Punctuation has become extremely popular. The series remains one of the publication's most prolific and signature features.
In Zero Punctuation, Croshaw usually reviews a game or games using rapid-fire speech delivery (which was the inspiration for the name "Zero Punctuation", although he states that his fast talking was "by accident"). This is accompanied by minimalistic cartoon imagery on a distinctive yellow background, illustrating what is being said or providing ironic counterpoint to it. The videos are typically around five minutes in length and formerly featured commercial songs at the beginning and end, which were usually related to the game context (although sometimes only tangentially, such
In this terrifyingly funny new series from FEARnet and Ghost House Pictures, a group of college kids driving on an unfamiliar winding road through a national park accidentally run over an unsuspecting squirrel. They quickly discover that this is no ordinary road - the woods are alive with the undead, animals reanimated as vengeful, murderous zombies!
After a harrowing crash, a meek but lovable Simon (David Dorfman, The Ring, Texas Chainsaw Massacre) must venture out to find help for his injured friends and brother. Along the way he runs into dedicated park ranger, Chet Masterson (Thomas Haden Church, Spider-Man 3, Sideways). Together, they attempt to survive this cursed stretch of highway - hopefully with most of their body parts intact.
Genre icons Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead Series, Drag Me to Hell) along with Jim Burns shepherded this six part original web series. Ben Ketai (30 Days of Night: Dark Days) and Sarah Donohue (Hatchet II) served as Executive Producers. David Green, whose Meltdown short garnered critical acclaim on the festival circuit, brings a fresh take to the genre in directing this twisted tale about twisted tails.
