Television hasn’t been making my Sci-Fi fix lately, and being a fan of web series in general I was happy to stumble across Arc. The last great sci-fi web series I stumbled across was Afterworld. This is a few steps above.
With a $50k budget, and some bigger names in it. This really makes the cut for great sci-fi. Starring Renee O’ Connor of Xena fame and directed by Trey Stokes, Stokes has an extensive resume of involvement in sci-fi series and film. He played a Tellarite Delegate in two episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise and worked in motion capture and/or puppeteering on notable films such as The Abyss, RoboCop 2, Batman Returns, Species, Starship Troopers, and The Blob.
The first season runs 9 episodes clocking in at about 4-6 minutes each, and frankly, I couldn’t stop watching — I ended up watching all 9 episodes in one sitting. I highly recommend this one.
The bad news is that 60Frames the production company that produced the series is now defunct due to “hard economic times” leaving season 2 in a questionable status.
Watch all 9 episodes here on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/ark
