The season one premiere of Signal 23 TV’s latest web series *About Him*, has already captured a significant online audience, gaining over 50,000 views on YouTube alone since it’s late February debut. Much of the growing popularity surrounding this throwback themed series, is a result of its sexy, yet compelling coming age storyline. Directed by Henderson Maddox and written by Tyson Anthony, About Him follows the journey of Damien (played by Brandon Karson) who portrays a black gay youth coming to terms with his sexuality and individual identity within the *Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell* era of the 90s.
Within this premiere episode, we get a brief but solid grasp at the direction of this series, with a substantial side of eye candy. Although like with any production (inde or mainstream), About Him is far from flawless. There are a few odd continuity issues, reflecting the decade this series is set in. Also the constant sexual encounters/thirst scenes, can range from blazing hot to Coco Dorm cringe worthy, based on some the overly cheesy lines riddled within this premiere.
With that noted, About Him still delivered an impressive series debut, while presenting credible potential for future episodes. Check out the series premiere of About Him below and then listen to our in-depth (spoiler heavy) podcast review of About Him (featuring host Chav Damon and Chris INPAQ Sutton).
