Storytelling gold

I just discovered the Hulu serial "Booth at the end". You can watch it all from the beginning here

Guys. Watch it all. SERIOUSLY. It's one of the best things I've seen in a really really really long time.


If you are a writer, this is a textbook for writercraft - *this is how you tell stories*. This is how you engage a reader/viewer/listener. This is how you hook an audience. This is how you touch people. This thing... it is complex, and simple at the same time, and utterly utterly amazing. If you have any writerly ambition at all, go look - you will learn just by absorbing this by osmosis.

If you are a reader (or any kind of story consumer) and you like your stories intelligent, passionate, poignant, full of smiles and tears and laughter and drama, you'll be hooked. I was, from the very first episode.

This is gold.
