Bottom Line: This is a really interesting premise, I just wish that the delivery was a little better. Some of the dialogue is shaky and the intro drags out what might otherwise be a much tighter show. It is still worth seeing for it’s unique look at questions of sexuality.
Rose a comfortably out woman who identifies as lesbian serendipitously meets Anthony a nice progressive straight man and both they and their friends are thrown in to comedic confusion when they unexpectedly find themselves falling for each other.
This Web TV Series is about a lesbian who falls in love with a man and has to deal with coming out all over again. New episode will debut on Sunday evenings.

For a web series that clocks in at about 5 minutes an episode, the intro is much too long (it clocks in at over a minute). The series itself flows pretty well, with every episode capturing one or two major plot elements. (Pacing 3)
Some of the extended dialogue is awkward, it’s not the acting per se (the female leads are great), there is just something that doesn’t quite flow about the script especially in the scenes involving the male characters. It’s really a shame because overall the story presents a really interesting premise. (Storytelling 2.5)
