Are You Watching Warner Premiere's New Sci-Fi Web Series 'H+' Produced By Bryan Singer?

If you're not, maybe you should take a peek at it. I say that because, I only just started watching it myself, so I'm not that far into what seems like a sprawling, international series, with lots of different characters; and I was kind of surprised to learn that there are a few black actors in it (I've counted 3 so far), and that there's a storyline that takes place in the Republic of Congo, which was more surprising.

If you're not, maybe you should take a peek at it. I say that because, I only just started watching it myself, so I'm not that far into what seems like a sprawling, international series, with lots of different characters; and I was kind of surprised to learn that there are a few black actors in it (I've counted 3 so far), and that there's a storyline that takes place in the Republic of Congo, which was more surprising.

I'll reserve comment until I'm caught up with the series, which is currently on episode 32, which is plenty, but thankfully each episode is only about 6-minutes long.

In short, the Warner Premiere, Bryan Singer collab is titled H+, and is a future-set story in which a virus has wiped out most of the human race, and those still alive have their minds linked to the Internet 24 hours a day. But when a virus is inserted into this matrix of an interconnected human race, lots of very bad things happens, leading to formation of a new world order. 

7 episodes in, I'll say that it's a bit confusing, with all the jumping back and forth in time, before the virus, and after the virus, and all the different characters introduced, and what their overall involvement is, which is why I'm reserving commentary on the series until I'm caught up, and can explain exactly what the heck is going on.

But I can say that I'm definitely interested, and it's holding my interest enough for me to keep watching. And finding out that there are black actors in it, and that there's a Congo storyline, I'm curious to see where it all goes; although I can't say if all those different strands continue throughout the series.

And it's obvious that there's money behind this, after all it's a studio project from a studio filmmaker, so it has all the technical achievement of any Hollywood movie, except it's made for the web.

If you're watching, I'm curious to know what you think of it, and maybe you can shed some light on what exactly is going on.
