H Plus: The Digital Series Screening Review

H Plus looks like an A+ 
Web series.


 Hey Otakus and Geeks fans, Sean (True Comic Fan) here, on 7/16 I was given the opportunity to see a screening of the upcoming web series called H Plus: The Digital Series. Before I get into my review, I want to give you the Synopsis of the series:
H+: The Digital Series takes viewers on a journey into an apocalyptic future where technology has begun to spiral out of control.... a future where 33% of the world’s population has retired its cell phones and laptops in favor of a stunning new device – an implanted computer system called H+. This tiny tool allows the user's own mind and nervous system to be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day.

But something else is coming... something dark and vicious... and within seconds, billions of people will be dead... opening the door to radical changes in the political and social landscape of the planet -- prompting survivors to make sense of what went wrong.
A futuristic online series, where the human race is hardwired to the Internet, is coming this summer.  From producer Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects” / "X-Men: First Class"), the highly anticipated live-action web series “H+ The Digital Series” will make its debut August 8 on YouTube.  Directed by Stewart Hendler (“Sorority Row”), and starring an acclaimed international cast that includes Alexis Denisof (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Amir Arison (“Law & Order: SVU) and David Clayton Rogers (“Jane By Design”), “H+ The Digital Series” takes viewers on an episodic, apocalyptic journey where technology has gone horrifically wrong.
I watched two playlists containing twenty webisodes and they were AMAZING! I was so immersed in the story that when it was over, I hadn’t realized I just watched twenty webisodes (thanks to info from the discussion panel). Each episode gives you the story from the perspective of different characters trying to survive and get answers to what cause the incident.
H+ reminds me of one of my favorite anime series Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex. Combining mystery, technology, and drama to create a story that will have viewers wondering what will happen next and how it will all end. This is a series I recommend everyone should check out and something we will be discussing at the water cooler.
Web Features
H+ will have some cool web feature that will give the viewer a unique experience. When you subscribe to H+ the digital series on youtube, you can choose to watch the webisodes and storyline of your favorite character. You will also be able to edit webisodes to create your own viewing experience.
