I was forwarded the trailer to this masterpiece by the great Dave Deckard. Within seconds, I knew it was something special. If you’re unfamiliar with a web series, it’s basically a television show released on the Internet but with shorter episodes. Think of it like a pizza-pocket.
[ed. Warning if you click through to the video: you're leaving Blazer's Edge and its boundaries. This series is going to be...different.]
Ladies and gentleman, I present to you, "Exploring Kaman."
0:03 We start with a cold open of Chris Kaman in jeans and a White T walking toward the camera.
0:11 Chris starts climbing everything in sight. "When the season is over, I’m ready for an adventure."
0:14 Just shooting a broken down car with a high-powered rifle, as one does.
0:20 "The trips I take are usually not well thought out." Really? That seems surprising.
0:30 30 seconds in and we finally find out what we’re going to be doing with Chris. BLUE MARLIN FISHING!!!!!!
0:38 "I had dreams of grandeur of catching a Blue Marlin. You know what grandeur is? It’s awesome." Like Hemingway with his words.
0:50 We get to meet some of Chris’s friends.
0:51 Who seem like cool guys.
1:07 Yeah. This.
1:10 Weird cat noise.
1:19 I’m not totally sure what’s happening here and I’m also not sure I have a guess.
1:24 HOLD ON. DID HE JUST EAT THAT MARLIN’S EYE BALL???????
1:26 Yep, he did. Also, creepy smile guy on the left.
1:34 "I think that whoever would watch this would think that there’s something wrong with me and something wrong my friends."
1:36 Dope logo.
1:40 Prepare yourselves.
- Chris seems kinda crazy
- His friends do too
- They love guns
- He still gives people titty-twisters
- He has dreams of grandeur
- He was probably the kid in middle school who would eat anything for 5 bucks
- I doubt he has a 401K
- He really wants to catch a Blue Marlin
- I couldn't be more excited for this show
So there you have it. The next great piece of American cinema. Breaking Bad, you've been warned.
Note: I will be keeping you updated on the progress of "Exploring Kaman" because let's face it...it needs to be done.
