Every time I watch an episode of Julie Ann Emery and Kevin Earley's smartly written and deftly acted web dramedy Then We Got Help! I find myself laughing so hard I almost pop my spleen one minute, then literally aching the next, because the situations the couples find themselves comically confronting hit so damned close to home.
In this week's sharp episode, the members of Emily's (Emery) motley crew of couples seeking therapy sans a therapist embark on a role reversal exercise. Mad props toSusan Ferrara (Gerry) and Sean Mahon (Terry) who nail it as their unhappily marrieds switch places to cuss one another out!
One Life to Live breakout Nicholas Rodriguez, who plays health nut Dan in the serial, also kills it as his character pretends to be Dan's hammy hubby Eric, played by Broadway star Blake Hammond. Since Hammond usually steals the show each week, Rodriguez managed to pull that fete by mimicking Hammond spot on. Then We Got Help!, along with Buppies and The Bannen Way are three of the web series we've covered that are definitely ready for primetime players.
