TWENTY

Today on Late Homework we are featuring an episode of Lily Richard's web series, Twenty, entitled "Liz".

When asked about which episode would fit best with our Light & Dark theme,

"I think an episode that would fit well would be episode 9. Its one of the easiest to grasp out of context and it has a good mixture of light and dark in terms of individual relationships. I.e. Good people, bad people, and how no one is really one or the other. It also deals with how people change and how the past informs our decisions and who we try to be," - LR

"My goal for Twenty is to open a doorway for comedies that are relatable to everyone while highlighting the experience of LGBT women in today’s world. As a now 22-year-old proud member of the LGBT community, I wish that something similar to ‘Twenty’ had been available to me when I was growing up" Quote from Lily's Directorial Statement (read the whole statement on Twenty's website).

You can also check out the entire series on Twenty's Youtube Channel.

Reverse Psychology

To kick off our new theme Exposed, Chandler Kilgore-Parshall shared with us the final episode of his web series Reverse Psychology in which an inept psychologist, at risk of losing his practice, exploits his patients’ stories for personal fame.

(Psst! If you want to catch up on the previous episodes first, head over to Funny or Die or Youtube).

“The ideas of reinvention and exposure appeal to me as a writer because you can flesh out what a character wants to be perceived as versus who they truly are, almost like two characters for the price of one. It’s the Yin and Yang of the human condition.

With Reverse Psychology, I love exploring Dr. Xanderhoot’s need to be recognized as successful and personable enough to get his own TV show. Ironically, it is during therapy sessions where his clients are supposed to open up to him. Throughout the series, we slowly unravel Xanderhoot’s insecurities and why he wants a new start. Either you like him or dislike him, but you’ll understand why Xanderhoot is the way he is.”
