Bottom Line: Delayed Teen Angst is one of those shows you will need to watch a few episodes of to get the rhythm. It’s different and until you see what they are trying to do the dialogue and pacing might throw you off. If you can get past that, Delayed Teen Angst is a unique retelling of the classic summer love story.
DELAYED TEEN ANGST (DTA) is the tale of noble Lionel (Tristan Scott); his no-nonsense sister, Evie (Amy Vorpahl); and his lovelorn friend, Damian (Fernando Noor), as they straddle adulthood during summer vacation. When Evie entertains the affections of Damian, Lionel struggles with the fact that his partner in chromosomes may be violated by his long-time friend.
From screenwriter Claire L. Wasmund and director Karen Bullis comes this breakout series that takes a comic look at a summer romance that goes seriously wrong.
Cast: Tristan Scott, Amy Vorpahl, Fernando Noor

This is definitely a weird one. Go into it knowing that and you will enjoy the story, if you are looking for a “normal” webseries you might be disappointed. (Storytelling 3.5)
I’ll admit, after the first episode I really couldn’t figure this one out. The characters are painted with broad flourishes and the dialogue borders on the purple. It took a few episodes to realize that the entire thing was deliberate but once I did I learned to appreciate the unique artistic style. (Watchability 2.5)
