There is an unbelievable amount of talent on this show. The way the stories and the characters are written is outstanding, Susan Miller deserves (and has rightly been awarded some of them including an Obie) every writing accolade there is. She crafts dialogue and situations which ask important questions and raises issues that should be at the forefront of our minds without ever making you feel as though you're being preached to. All of this is brought beautifully to our screens by Tina Cesa Ward. I don't know a thing about directing but whatever instruction she is giving the cast it works. Absolutely. And what a cast!
The whole cast are believable in their portrayal and though the majority of them are young (although they're playing a lot younger) they approach their roles with the maturity and fearlessness required. I think that the fact that they are 20-somethings playing high school kids - convincingly, only further demonstrates how talented they are.
You can't help but fall in love with Vivian (Rachael Hip-Flores - remember this name coz she's gonna be big). She is trying so hard to be everything to everyone when she's still not sure of who she is yet.Read more ›
This is a very well written and produced series that just keeps getting better. The bonus material is a welcome compliment to the storyline.
You will be astounded by the quality of the production in all facets. The young actors were a revelation to me. Rachel Hip-Flores, who just won a Streamy Award for best actress in a dramatic web series, plays Vivian. Nicole Pacent, one of the stars of the upcoming independent film "Queens of the World", portrays Vivian's girlfriend Aster. It's so rare to hear real, evocative dialogue written these days and Miller and Ward deliver it episode after episode. And the actors really seem to inhabit the characters and speak the dialogue as if it was coming from their own thoughts.
You will not be disappointed by your investment, financially or emotionally, in "Anyone But Me".
Can't wait for Season 2 on DVD!
