Do you get your PERIODS? Are you shocked that I asked you about your menstruation cycle? I didn’t. I’m talking about the web series PERIODS. Voted #15 on Time Out NY’s list of top 50 funniest web series, I have to say, it’s one of my very favorites so I agree.
“Each episode of Periods takes characters from a touchstone work of literature (Ethan Frome, say), or a historical clique (Pilgrims, for instance) and fills their mouths with elliptical, modern speech. More than tossing in some likes and ums, though, the Periods crew’s attention to detail is unsurpassed: The costumes, sets and performances are all stellar, and each episode has its own genre spoof tucked away in it—the girls of Little Women get catty via vlogs; Adam and Eve are on a reality show with God (“Hiii, I’m Eve, I’m 24, and I’m from Adam’s rib”).” -Time Out
PERIODS is created by Victor Quinaz, Anna Martemucci and the entire PERIODS crew. “Wait”, you say, “how can one web series be created by so many people?” I’m glad you asked, and I treasure our conversations, you’re my special angels. Each episode is outlined with bullet points and as the lovely Anna Martemucci put it, written in the edit. The actors improvise each scene and do so beautifully. The melding of these period pieces along with the modern jargen will make one laugh out loud, unless that is you are my mother. I sent her the web series and she didn’t quite get why the Pilgrims were speaking in such a manner, butthat is what makes humor subjective.
Mothers of the world, fear not! The periods crew has made a movie that is a little more mainstream and will be sure to make anyone laugh and maybe even cry as it is called BREAKUP AT A WEDDING and honestly, I cry at those without anyone getting their heart broken. So here-is-what. You have to peep their YouTube page and subscribe so you don’t miss out when they drop new episodes. Also, check them out on Facebook so you can find out where, when and how to see their movie. Please (and imagine me holding your hand and looking into your eyes as I say this) trust me when I tell you how funny these people are and how much better your days are going to be when you start getting your PERIODS. I love you.
Why be unkind when you can be kind? That’s like asking why wear a hat when you can wear a tiara! It’s a no brainer, ladies! xo
