Silver Lake Badminton and Adventurers Club solves the crime

fernando-fernando-clue.jpgI'm late to the web series The Silver Lake Badminton and Adventurers Club, but I guess it's OK since the creators just this week posted their video answer to the question: "Who killed preeminent video artist Fernando Fernando?”

In a world full of secrets, lies, and depravity, there are some crimes that the police are just too mainstream to handle. Enter: The Silver Lake Badminton and Adventurers club. The heros Silver Lake deserves but hasn't necessarily heard of yet.

Co-creator Avi Glijansky explains that the show follows a pair of Silver Lake hipsters "who, armed with razor sharp instincts (or so they think) and impeccable taste in indie rock, are all that stands between Silver Lake and chaos no one else is cool enough to know about. It’s a spoof of film-noir and detective procedurals all wrapped up in a loving parody of hipster culture."

Here's episode one. If you like it, go find two and three at their site.


Glijansky is also the creator, writer, and director of The Further Adventures of Cupid & Eros, "a fantasy romantic comedy about two love gods (the titular Cupid and Eros) trying to set the world and their own love lives right."
