Munchman: “Red Oaks” is Back!

by Munchman

It is with great glee that I inform one and all that Red Oaks, that cute little web series about a teenage boy and his privileged, country club life back in the halcyon days of 1986 will be back on the interwebs November 11th.

Not familiar with the series? Here’s some blurb verbiage:

For assistant tennis pro David Meyers it’s been a year of upheaval. In a freefall following his parents’ divorce, forced to drop out of NYU and forego dreams of becoming a filmmaker, his one silver lining has been his budding romance with Skye, the daughter of club president Doug Getty. But when Skye returns home from a year abroad in Paris with more worldly ways and a newfound independence, David finds himself caught in the middle between his strong-willed girlfriend and her equally stubborn father….

The series is written by Gregory Jacobs, Joe Gangemi, Karey Dornetto, Shawn Harwell, Tom Papa, Max Werner and Daisy Gardner.

Lightweight, meaningless, and derivative as Red Oaks may be, it’s as solid a series as you’ll find on the web and a good escape from contemporary conflicts, and Yer Friendly Neighborhood Munchadorio recommends it whole-heartedly–

Wait. What?

Red Oaks isn’t a web series? It’s a presentation of Amazon Studios with Steven Soderbergh and David Gordon Green? You sure about that?

Shazbot! Munchy’s been snookered!

My apologies to all. Judged by professional standards, which I wasn’t doing because Indie TV and all, Red Oaks is bottom of the barrel slime. Stay away! Stay away!

Dammit, I gotta start watching my TV on a bigger screen than an elderly iPhone 5 so I can actually, you know, see the damn credits.
