In the past, people watched TV shows or movies. These were the two most popular types of videos. The internet changed this. Now, people have many choices. They can watch short videos at any time on their computers. Some people make one or two videos and put them on online platforms such as YouTube. Other people make web series. Like a TV show, a web series has many different parts.

Some web series teach people about new things, such as making clothes, studying science, or choosing a local restaurant. Other web series are for fun. They tell stories and follow the lives of different people. Web series are like TV shows, but they are usually shorter. Independent people make many web series. They share their perspectives for each viewer to think about.

Jessica and Gary are talking about why they like web series. Find out more in today’s English lesson about web series.

Jessica:  So Gary, are you into web series at all?

Gary:  There’re actually a number of them that I watch.

Jessica:  I guess I didn’t realize that there was actually such a large variety of web series out there.

Gary:  I do love that the independent creators have so much creative control over their content.

Jessica:  I know. It’s incredible. And now that you can put them anywhere… YouTube and all of the different online platforms... the exposure is amazing.

Gary:  And you get to, as a viewer, experience so many new perspectives and ideas that you would never have really considered.

Jessica:  Absolutely.

Gary:  I love it.

Jessica:  We should come up with an idea and create our own web series.

Gary:  Well, we do have a lot of things in common, so it would probably be pretty easy to do.

Jessica:  I have a good idea.

Gary:  Yeah?

Jessica:  We could do something local and go around to different restaurants…

Gary:  There’re so many things here.

Jessica:  It’s so true. Just the culture of the city. We have a music scene. We have lots of comedy. That could be fun.

Everytime Im interested in something special I go for web series.


Then it depends on many things.


I have found many good advises and informations by this way.


When I want to buy something new or I have a question about a new product , when Im searching for a new recipes or when Im bored and want to have fun and want to watch a funny video or documentary about animals.


Also I have learned how to make some handmades or DIY by these videos.

What’s my favorite web series ?
Honestly , I’m fan for Wild West movies , documentaries web series as Blue Planet has been creating by BBC Nature and The Nature is proformancing by PBS .
All stuffs are sort of web series that have different prospective for human being .
I have to come up with what kind of consequence for viewers ? The web series need to be realistic about what’s does affect it to us ?
Change human behavior ?
Respect to humans ?
Or being disrespectful to each other and going to private life as so many webs series do it .
Generally , independent web series can show local community activity like art museum or stuffs like these .
Web series needs to have a great director or creator to prticipate real thing which is capturing by realistic moments .
