Have you heard of The Platoon of Power Squadron?
If not, it is an incredible web series on YouTube, and one that I adore and am really passionate about.
It is one of those shows that perfectly blurs light comedy and dark drama in a way that thoroughly entertains.
But it doesn’t get anywhere near the attention it deserves, which in my opinion is a true loss to those who are missing out on the show’s awesome.
The creator, Jake Jarvi, who has been a major inspiration in my return to writing, is currently asking for help in getting the show and the cast & crew the recognition they deserve.
If you are a fan of the series already, please spend 30 seconds to help the show out:
If you are not yet a fan of the show, why not spend 85 seconds to find out why you should be?
The show is funny, shocking, engaging, well written, well performed and (particular in the later episodes) an all round top notch production. It is a real example of where the future of entertainment lies.
But the reason I am so passionate about the show, and why I consider Jake, Carlyn, Craig, Eliza, and all the cast and crew true inspirations is that this is a passion project. It is something they produce in their own time, with the backing of only a relatively small (but truly awesome) community.
It even had a cameo appearance by Hank Green in one episode, but you will have to watch them all to find out which ;)
