So, with the season one finale of “Celeste Bright” behind us, it’s time, methinks, to showcase a new web series. With the focus on relationships between black men and black women tending towards pathology or non existence, it’s always refreshing to see a perspective which engages the main parties concerned – black men and women – in an honest, engaging, sometimes cringe-worthy manner that isn’t ashamed to take a warts and all approach but at the same time isn’t all about playing the blame game and pitting men against women.
Al Robbins, of Bottom of the Net Films, gives us exactly that in The Next Day, starring Mr Robbins himself and Deanna Dawn, in a look at one particular relationship between a black man and a black woman, founded on what could be considered relationship quicksand – a capricious binge of hedonism – and following that couple on to the next day… and beyond.
I did see a preview about a month ago, and liked it, but somehow slept on the series launch, so here are the first three episodes. Now, I know it’s hard for us black folk to watch a show or film about black people and not take it personally but… oh well, if the cap fits…
Episode 1: The morning after they meet at a bar and have a one night stand , Desire’ and Will attempt to resolve a slight misunderstanding of the circumstances. Episode 2: Now that they’ve already slept together, Will and Desire’ get to know each other better.

Thanks for posting on this show. Another good web series to follow.
I watched all 3 and enjoyed them. I was rollin’ on the 1st and 2nd episodes dialogue. Looks like this will be entertainingly interesting.
Thanks for the post Ms.Woo!
already better than “celeste bright”!
BTW, I made a mistake with the embed code for episode 1 and had two copies of episode 3 up instead. Episode 1′s been fixed now. Watch away!
“… relationship quicksand…a capricious binge of hedonism…” Ms. Woo, you are a woman after my own heart! Thanks for finding and showcasing us!
I agree. This is already better than Celeste Bright. Let’s get away from the Best Man Black professionals looking for love stuff. Let’s deal with people other than mainstream wishers>
I contend that Relationships have A Season, A Reason and or a Lifetime…like I always say “Love Don’t Hate Nobody” and “Lust Dont Hurt Nobody” disgruntled, scorned women and or jealous, insecure me do! Control your emotions and LOL – (Love Out Loud)

Better than Celeste Bright? Why not just DIFFERENT? One is a drama about a woman in business and this is about a single relationship. Why do Black people always have to compare everything? I remember hearing people saying “Menace” was better than “Boyz”… Stupid crabs in the barrel which is why TP is the only one who can get a movie made in Hollywood.
And how is this concept original? Same plot as “Medicine for Melancholy” But I will give it a chance.
