Novel Adventures

November 7, 2008

Have you guys heard about the webisode called Novel Adventures on CBS? Just Google it and you’ll find it.

As described on the website, Novel Adventures is about four women (Lizzie, Laura, Joanna, and Amy) who are decidedly uninterested in the pretentious book club they belong to, but they enjoy the time away from their families. Determined to take their ‘us’-time and enjoy it, they decide to use the books as inspiration. It’s great to read about amazing lives, but these girls are ready to live them. And so, the four women start a new kind of book club, picking a “novel adventure” for each book. Each meeting is an opportunity for discovery, freedom, and fun. The adventure is just the beginning.

Sounds interesting? Well, check out the website each Monday and Friday to see the newest episode uploaded. I just watched the first couple of episodes and two things caught my attention – first, they last a whopping six minutes each Also, the show is sponsored by Sat*rn, so their are tons of Sat*rn references littered throughout (kind of like one big ol’ advertisement). One of the main characters spouses even works at a Sat*rn dealership.

All in all, quite short and rather annoying. Oh well, the concept is neat. Now, let me get back to watching some real good television!

    I saw one of them. I found it kind of annoying too.

    Ha Ha – “real good television” – you & Scott, how you two so love Dirty Jobs & Mike Rowe. If you lived closer, you know Scott would make you come over for some Discovery Channel marathons. (Mike Rowe is funny, BTW, I just like to tease the hubster about his man-crush)

    Interesting. I watched two of the webisodes, but the blatant advertising kinda ruined the actual storyline.

    I had this sad thought that in the future advertising will become much a part of our lives that every TV show will be nothing but advertising for some product or another!
