Best websites for original webisodes and series

At these sites you can watch the Emmy-nominated<em> Prom Queen, </em>the work of improv group Upright Citizens Brigade, and follow nervous House star Hugh Laurie through a photo shoot, complete with boa constrictors.

Vuguru.com hosts five Web-only series. These include Emmy-nominated Prom Queen, which since 2007 has had 20 million viewers “trying to solve the mystery” of the murders of high school royalty. The new season, Prom Queen: The Homecoming, debuts later this fall.

Ucbcomedy.com showcases the work of improv group Upright Citizens Brigade. The one-minute clip, House Porsche, for instance, is a “trailer for a fictional Fox television show,” about a man living in a luxury car. The Brigade also creates serials such as Cat News, which features a feline anchor.

Snakesonacane.com
features nothing more than a four-minute video following nervous House star Hugh Laurie through a photo shoot, complete with boa constrictors, meant to “re-create the serpent symbol of medicine.” Who doesn’t want to see House’s sardonic title character “wrapped in a very large snake”?
