It helps from time to time to go back and take a look at a classic webseries™. “After Judgment” is such a beast. 2008 was a gorgon’s age ago in this business.
But I digress.
In “After Judgment,” the world has suffered some kind of unexplained cataclysm. The people left over can never die. Never die? Well, this is sounding rather promising! (I would hardly call a cataclysm that causes a spate of Vampirism a cataclysm. But then, I’m no Vampocataclysmologist.)
Sadly, as is the case with so many of these shows, I have been misled. The characters don’t die, true, but they aren’t exactly undead, either. And while they are enthused at the slightest sight of blood, they make no moves to consume it. What are they, then? What happened? What’s going on here?
Your guess is as good as mine, and my guess has already been shot in the head and left to resurrect itself on the cold, loamy earth.
The main character, Steven, is nicely played by Joel Bryant (who is also featured in the merely passable sitcom “Life from the Inside“—see my review here). We get to see Steven out of his clothes quite often, which normally would not be worth mentioning, but since it’s obviously central to the story, I thought I should let you know.
While there are no Vampires in this show, there aren’t any zombies, either, and so I found “After Judgment” to be enjoyable. I give it my second highest rating.
Score = Blah.
