Review: The Residuals, Season 2



If The Residuals didn't exist, someone would have to invent the show. The comedic web series about actors who do commercials -- the auditions, the callbacks, the competition -- has been around for a year but this season they really hit their mark. Even the outtakes are pretty friction' hilarious. Created and Produced by Gillian Pensavalle and Michael Paul Smith, this season Horatio Sanz, Jenna Leigh Green and Michael Torpey.

Season 2 premiered this week. I have known Gillian since way back in the days of the Jake and Jackie radio program where she worked and I used to call in on the regular. Although I have never auditioned for a commercial I know a lot of actors and their talk about the whole process -- and the dreams of scoring a "national" -- are fascinating. That is why I am surprised that this is the first time someone did a comedy show on the subject. BroadwayWorld is clever for scooping them up.

This season all the regulars return as well as the guest stars. How does one begin tho describe this show? The episodes are digestible nuggets -- less than 15 minutes a pop -- and perfect for viewing on a mobile device. I've told Gillian at the premiere that they would be perfect for IFC TV, where I used to work, because they are trying to do edgy comedy. Comedy Central also would be a perfect fit for this madcap group of actors who audition and compete for the role of corporate pitchman, essentially.  My guess is that anyone who has ever pursued commercial acting has a million stories -- agents, alone --so let's hope this continues for a while because I, for one, am quite enjoying the ride.

The show is brilliant. Check it out here.

Hello, and welcome to our website for the best hand raised macaw parrots for sale.
We pride ourselves in the best taming practices of macaws among aviaries.
All of our macaws are bred in a disease-free Biosecure breeding sanctuary.
They are well socialized, having been raised in our home as members of our
own family in order for them to become ready to be a member of yours.
They are quite comfortable around all ages, including the elderly and young children.
When you purchase a bird from Us, we are committed to offering lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

Hand Raised Parrots for Sale, Macaw Parrots for Sale
Macaws are playful and active and they have excited personalities to go along with their sizes.
But this also makes them very challenging pets. They do have the ability to say words and mimic
our speech but it is not as clear as some other pet bird species.
Because they are so intelligent, macaws can be trained. You can start when your pet bird is young,
and work on hand-feeding, teaching your bird to talk or sing, and training your macaw not to nip, bite, or scream.
