“Hi! I’m Max Sherman and I have a gay dad, Scott Young. I’m trying to prove that gay people can be parents, too, one video at a time.” – Max Sherman , Scott & Max’s Vlog
Over a year ago I wrote Just Us Guys Web Series: Raising Money for Breast Cancer Awareness & ‘It Gets Better’ about an Indiegogo campain for a new Sit-Com Chris Lilly’s Just Us Guys. Just Us Guys had just been featured at the 2013 Comic Con International Independent Film Festival. The premise are the trials and tribulations of a young, single geek dad (Dad owns a comic book & collectables business) who happens to be gay, raising his straight geek teenage son. When Joyce, Scott’s conservative mother moves into town, she wants to make amends with Scott for kicking him out and meets her 15-year-old grandson for the first time. The first five episodes are here and have garnered, deservedly so, a lot of positive feedback. The conceit of the show is it unfolds over YouTube in posts from “Scott & Max’s Vlog” the “son” Max Sherman (Skyler Seymour www.twitter.com/tateskyler) cajoles his reluctant “father” Scott Young (Scott Hislop www.twitter.com/scottalanhislop) into making with him about their everyday lives in the hopes of raising awareness of and showing a loving family to viewers outside of the LGBTQ community and to closeted young people who may be struggling without support. It’s a noble effort, the principles are likable and they seem to share a genuine affection but the bottom line is the show is funny. I look forward to seeing more episodes!
