Clutch. The series. Where to start. Well, to say the series has balls would be as good a place as any. And it does. So many web series (And indie films for that matter) are watered down lately, and I'm not really sure why that is or when it began. When artists decided to use the internet as a way to get their ideas out there (As an alternative to Hollywood) I'm pretty sure the term "Creative Freedom from censors" was right at the forefront of their thoughts. So. What happened? Who knows really. But like I said, a lot of Indie stuff just seems watered down which is a shame. Clutch however is not. And that's refreshing.
The series is not perfect, as few indie productions can be, but it's good. And it get's better each episode, which is even better. When we return to review it again at a later date I expect it to be damn near perfect. So. What is Clutch? A drama of sorts with a lot of 'Forbidden' topics included in the storyline, some honest to God good humor and some damn good writing to pull it all together.. The acting? Nicely done as well, and getting better. I expect when it comes to the acting, it's a case of the actors becoming their characters, which usually happens when something is put together right. And that's what makes us grow to care about them... or hate them.
I started watching not knowing what to expect and left wanting more! What do I personally like most about the series? The humor. The jokes (If you can call them that) are written well, well timed and work for the characters acting them out. The characters themselves? They're great and getting more interesting as time goes by! From the bubbly but ruthless characters, to the more refined.... but equally ruthless ones. We get to see the side of 'Stereo-Typical characters' that we would normally never see. Clutch also plunges deep into some real life problems with our modern society... and does it well.
All in all, as some of you readers know I hate letting the proverbial Cat Out Of The Bag with any production. But I can say Clutch is a series I will continue to watch as long as it keeps pumping out the episodes. Right now, they're halfway into the second season. So why not ensure they make a third by jumping over and watching for yourself. You'll be glad you did.
I'm humbly giving Clutch a 3.5 out of 5 to date. The later episodes scored an extra half point, and I expect this score to rise as the production continues. Head on over and become a fan yourself! It's free and well worth the time!
