I think we can all agree, the rise of fitness-minded products, services, and trendy exercise activities (like goat yoga or punk rock aerobics) is a topic that’s rife with potential for ridicule and humor.
That’s also the basis behind new web series Gym Buddies, which follows the tale of Aparna (Nikita Redkar), a social-media obsessed millennial stereotype in her 20s, as she sets out on a huge healthy lifestyle change prompted by a recent breakup. She enlist her best friend Quinn (Chelsea Lane) to be her designated gym bud, to which Quinn begrudgingly agrees to.

If you enjoy watching extremely strange and unique web series, I’m happy to say that you are in for it today with Year of the Snake. What exactly “it” is, I cannot really say for sure. But whatever the hell it is, you’re definitely in for it!
The web series comes from director Nic Collins of Twin Visuals, who can explain it all much better than I. He calls it a “superhero, comedy, sci-fi, punk rock, genre-bending, web series,” which he describes as “Batman (1966) meets [Grant] Morrison’s Animal Man with some of [Jim] Starlin’s Silver Surfer” mixed with “a little Deadpool and The Venture Bros.” to top it all off. See? Madness!
