You've got to love Hulu. Not only do they have prestigious films like Hoop Dreams, but they also show geeky web-series depicting even geekier characters. The Line, starring SNL's Bill Hader and The State's Joe Lo Truglio, can now be seen in its entirety at my favorite corporate-owned online media viewing site.
The Line is a seven-part web series depicting two aging geeks (Hader and Lo Truglio) waiting in line eleven days early for their favorite science fiction space opera. Hilarity ensues, of course, as the two encounter people who are even more rabid and hardcore then they are and as they suffer the repercussions from attempting to put their normal lives on hold in order to stay in the line.
The first episode can be viewed above. The rest can be seen here at Hulu. First taste is always free, guys.
