Episode 4 of my Web Series - Excuse You!


I still have trouble believing I am posting videos of my own creation. There was a time when I used to post clips from TV shows and films. But this series, it's mine. I wrote it, I shot it with my crew and I edited it. I am very proud of it. :)

I hope it makes you smile -

My First Web Series - Excuse You!

It's a comedy based around a London restaurant and its crazy staff. We release one new episode every Monday. So far, there are 3 episodes.

Here's the direct link to the first episode:

Let me fool you - Big Bang Theory


The reason I have used a hyphenated two-part title to this post is that I have more than one thing to day on this topic and I might decide to do other posts with the same prefix "Let me fool you".

I don't like it when film and TV producers/directors take leave of common sense and just go ahead and film something ridiculous completely ignoring the fact that their audience is not totally stupid.

The Big Bang Theory is one of my very favourite shows and I love it especially because of its smart writing. But in one episode they took leave of their brain and wrote with their..I don't know what.

The story arch in the episode that I have problem with involves Howard and a Robot hand that he had made for NASA. Howard being the randy bastard that he is, he took the Robot hand home and decided to use it for masturbation. This, of course, went wrong because it's a comedy show. Because of some malfunction the hand gets stuck and Howard's genitals are stuck in its grip.

Their follows a comic sequence of SOS calls to friends, a visit to the ER with a blanket over Howard's junk etc. etc. But I could not laugh at it because I do not accept the premise. Think about it.

As soon as Howard realized his predicament he would not be sexually aroused any more, which would make his penis shrink and slip out of the grip of robot hand. Why did it not occur to the writers? Or was this episode written by women?

I just wish they'd stop treating their audience like idiots.

My First Web Series - Excuse You!


We launched our web series last week. I know some people will ask what is a web series.

Well, simply put it's like a TV show with two major differences - the episodes are smaller, and instead of a TV channel it is broadcast using a web interface like YouTube or Vimeo.

Ours is on YouTube. The channel URL is:

If you click Subscribe you will receive updates at regular intervals (no spam) from YouTube when we upload new videos including the series episodes.

You can watch the first episode directly at this link:

My plan is to upload a new episode every weekend so that people can have a fresh episode to watch on Monday. The idea is that in the stress of Monday morning, if we can be responsible for one of your smiles, it would be a job well done! :)
