Dear ladies and gents,
why hasn’t anyone told me about Chosen*? Eh?
Have you heard of it?
It’s a web series. I know. I know. And it streams on – wait for it – Crackle.
Now before you accuse me of being a silly cow who is asking you to watch some rubbish web series that doesn’t even stream on Netflix or Hulu, do hear me out.
Obviously I had to get over my snobbish tendencies, because hm… Crackle. But see Chosen, yeah? It’s surprisingly good.
Truth be told, it’s better than many (MANY!) of the shows that aired and then promptly got cancelled as mid-season replacements.
Created by Ben Ketai and Ryan Lewis, Chosen follows the story of Ian Mitchell (played by Milo Ventimiglia. Also known as that dude from Heroes. Or Gilmore Girls). So Ian is a lawyer and one day he finds a mysterious box on his doorstep. When he opens it (because OF COURSE he has to open the box! It has his name on it after all), he finds a gun and a photo of a person he needs to “expire” with a limited number of hours to get this done. So it turns out that killing a stranger is a part of a game. And he has to play. Or else.
ANYWAY. Matters do get a bit more complicated. Obvs.
But I’m telling you, Chosen is good. Plus each episode is about 20 minutes and the whole season is 6 episodes in total, so it’s more like watching a feature length movie?
Chosen has aired three seasons so far, while fourth season has been commissioned.
Do give it a go. I mean, it’s not like there is anything to watch at the moment.
* Sorry, can’t be ar*ed to spell it like they want it to be spelled. Because well…
