Welcome back to the series of posts here at SciFi Mafia that we’re calling Web Series Wednesday where we devote a space to the wonderment of the web series. Every Wednesday we’ll cover an awesome web series and give you all the info to get into it.
This week we’re covering So Not Super.
So Not Super is a new web series about a rising group of super heroes. There’s only one episode out at the time of the post. It’s already off to a solid start with characters and writing, but I was hoping for a bit more from the first episode. Here’s a little blurb from the production company, Day 304, and following that is the first episode.
This low budget, quirky comedy revolves around a ragtag support group for unknown “heroes” with less-than-awesome abilities. Group sessions are led by Samantha, a retired A-List hero whose powers mysteriously vanished, and her association with a convicted super criminal hasn’t won her any favors with the GALA of Justice or her super ex-boyfriend, Captain Famous.
Fans of Mystery Men, Dr. Katz, Kick-Ass or The Legion of Substitute Heroes will definitely want to check it out.
Next month, we will be launching a modest Kickstarter for So Not Super to help cover meager production costs for the remaining nine episodes of the first season.
Day 304 is perhaps best known for producing the five-part, award-winning steampunk web series Dirigible Days.
Web Series: So Not Super – Episode One
While this is just a first episode, I think it has a lot of potential and how that the puppetmasters stick with it. What is just a three star opening, could definitely grow with further episodes. So give it a chance and check back on its progress.
I give So Not Super minisodes Three out of Five Stars.
