    Here’s episode 2 of the sexy new series “About Him” from director Henderson Maddox (Steel River, The Boyz Next Door).

    Synopsis:

    A scripted series about a young man trying to find himself and love in a confused stage in his life where he is struggling with his sexuality. Set in the 90’s the series starts off with Damien finding himself in comprising positions with his brothers best friend, Vincent.
    The writers here, Henderson Maddox and Tyson Anthony, attempt to expand the basic premise established in the first episode by introducing family backstories for the main characters featured. While the attempt is appreciated, there’s still not enough narrative meat on the bone yet.

    Two episodes in, there is still no clear direction for the series, besides seeing if and when the virgin Damien will eventually have sex with his older brother’s best friend. Don’t be surprised if the season finale features such a scene. Either that or a cliffhanger where the older brother “walks in” on them in the act (cut to black, fade in to a voice-over asking for donations to fund a season two).

    Speaking of voice-overs, there are way too many voice-overs on this show. I may be biased because I think adding narration is lazy, but film and television is a visual medium: Show the audience, don’t tell the audience. There is a scene in a kitchen where the side characters literally stand and wait for the voice-overs to finish before they continue talking. This makes the series feel more like a stage play than a web or television series.

    While this episode lacked in momentum and narrative drive, we carry on with it for now. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if most of the audience drops off after this chapter. Here’s hoping episode 3 gets much better.

    I watched the pilot. I thought it was weird and trying way to hard for my tastes...but the oral scene was hot!

    I going to give this series a try. I was also fascinated with the Doug clips(when it was on nick) because I was a huge huge fan when I was a kid lol. Hopefully they will work out some of the stuff for the next part. I like the overall story line and plot though. Im rooting for the series.

    If ypu go to the comments yoy see lots of comments stating that the show is good, though none of the commenters states why. Though they do make comments about the live interest being sexy.

    I have also made comments about the likable and lickable fellas in this but I did mention that I liked the cinematography (and some of the show looking rather decent visual wise) & I totally dig the bag of 90s nostalgia tossed in.

    An issue I have is some slight pacing but my biggest complaint is the audio, which can get quite messy in some scenes during narritive voice over.

    as web series go, this one starting off pretty good, and not just over the top gay dudes acting out. But I liking it so far, even though much didn't happen this episode it was more of a backstory about the older brother. there was a scene or two that the filming was way to dark and the sound was not the best, one was with the dad in the living room. But so far I think this could be an OK web series, they guys are cute, but they not always having sex and they taking more time to build a story.

    I know the whole dead moms thing was supposed to tug at my heartstrings, but I completely lost it after the first two chords of One Sweet Day. I'm a terrible person. I am rooting for them, and I'm sure the pacing (and other things) will improve, but right now I agree with @hannibal , they're trying too hard.

    THIS 2ND EPISODE IS GOOD, IT'S PACING HEAVY ON SEXAPPEAL. - I JUST THINK THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A MOVIE [ NUDITY INCLUDED ] WHERE IT WOULD LEAD INTO A SERIES. - IT IS GOOD AND LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT GET EVEN BETTER. - BUT LIKE THESE YOUTUBE SERIES, IT'S STILL MISSING BETTER SOUND AND NUDITY [ WHERE IS THE NUDITY ? ] .

    I'm just going to say that the audio was off and made it hard to watch this episode. I get where it's trying to go with the title "About him".... But it's leaving me feeling like "well... What about him?" Cause he sucked your dick then asked you for some head in the living room???? Very romantic....
    I'll continue watching yet I'm starting to trade the fence

    I watched the first 2 episodes. I can relate to the story being that I was a closeted teenager back in the 1990s. Some of the dialogue comes off bit hammy the slang seems a bit off too. It's not as bad as I thought it would be but it isn't brilliant either. It's watchable tho. Hopefully they'll continue to develop the characters and make them more 3 dimensional.

    I hate this dumb autovorrect on my phone. Makes me look like a social media retard when I post...

    Anyways, I asked a friend of mine to view it and he said it was okay & I agree. In my original post I failed to bring up something important that the OP mentioned....The series big finale is the boy giving up his cakes & if this would be the actual main plot device for the show then Ill be very disappointed.

    The next episode can be purchased for advanced viewing. Id pay it just to support and its only 2.99.

    I did notice that they have more episodes set in progress and I think this is supposed to be more than a 12 episode package. I immediately noticed that the current title for episode 4 is "Eat My Ass". I raised an eyebrow (no cheeks though) because I was hoping this wouldnt be what the OP had mentioned since it seems like the series may be trailing on the line of the Boogina Chronicles or whatever. I think the smashin should have already taken place by EP 2. Sexy chocolate love interest should have tagged that and disappeared on ole dude. Which makes me wonder

    I wonder if one of them will be revealed to be a trick or in term of 90s slang..A trade boy or rough trade who has sex for money. When the other dude asked for head and said he'd give him $10 to do it..I was like..
    And the men other brother who is super homophobic...I wonder if he'll be revealed to be in the closet as well.

    Hell maybe make the father who works alot be in on the action...

    So far though, the only thing I know about sexy chocolate is that the About Him part is only displaying that he's seductive....

    And it looks like the other cutie is about to get sprung...

    I really enjoyed it I liked that the relationship between the older brother and the friend was shown more and that he's a real support system for the older brother. It left me wanting to know more about why the older brother doesn't like the main character...does he someone blame him for her death? I see a good base for more storylines....how will the older brother react if finds out his bro and friend are gay? Will the younger bro and older bro fix their relationship?

    My only criticisms are they need to "get out the house" so to speak and hopefully show some more sets like them at work or school or something...also besides Doug on the TV it doesn't seem very 90s to me...I thought it was weird when the friend said he "hooked up with an internet dude"

    I just bursted out laughing reading your comment!!! "Very Romantic" lmao!!! But I kinda agree, like hopefully there's an actual romance that blossoms between the two and not just nothing but sexcapades because that's story has been told so many times, I'm really hoping they give this one some edge.

    BORING and very uncreative. Too many light skinned makes the majority of the cast and they don't have great skills. The producer is at least brown and least he could have people that is his shade. I don't care for anymore Signal 23 TV stuff! GOODBYE!

    It is clear to me that this series does not serve my demographics, because I was in my 20s in the 90s.

    I keep wanting to give this series a chance; I really like the plot. They need to pay attention to the props though. Like if this is 93' ish era the lil kim pic in the back and the type of computer he was using don't fit. And some of the lingo is not 90's. I wish the dialogue and the story line would speed up a lil bit too. Im still givin it a chance though.

    I think folks are a bit too hypercritical..or it could be that I wasn't expecting too much haha. I thought the series was decent. I normally don't care much for web series that use sex as a gimmick for viewership but I think it's one of the main points in this series. It's reminiscent of the unknown and that heightened anticipation that you felt as a young man when you first started becoming sexual with another person. Hell, it's even reminiscent of having that crush that you just CANNOT get off your mind even as a grown man. It seems like it might be predictable though but meh, we'll see.

    Diving into this storyline will definitely add more complexity to the character. And maybe also focus on the dad and how he is dealing with losing the wife. Otherwise we are all here for the sex scenes

    Nudity is in the unedited version. Obviously it's edited for YouTube.

    Initially I thought this was going to be a coming of age story about a black gay guy. Unfortunately it quickly degenerated into soft porn. Why the need for so much filth in a mini web series? I'm not saying there shouldn't be any sex but it shouldn't be JUST sex.

    One of my online friends sent me one episode with the nudity/porn. I still skimmed through. This show is just....not it.
