Storyline

Lucas Frost is a former All-American with a Stanford PhD and a sweet gig teaching literature at Westwood University. His younger brother Eddie is a gambler with a dusty old trailer in the middle-of-nowhere Arizona. And while they may seem nothing alike on the surface, and may in fact profess to hate each other, the Frost brothers share a common propensity for making mistakes. On the same day that Lucas gets fired for having an affair with his Dept. Chair's daughter, Eddie gets chased out of Arizona by a crooked vice cop with a grudge. But things are about to get worse for the Frost brothers - because their father has just committed suicide, and he's left them an awkward inheritance. On the one hand, they get their childhood home back in Bakersfield and a not-quite worthless Rare Book Shop. On the other, they also inherit dad's $600,000 debt to the Chinese mob. "Books" follows the Frost brothers as they become small-time bookies in small-town Bakersfield - along the way, playing with ... Written by Anonymous

For a Low Budget Show, This is Really, Really Good.
13 January 2012 | by jwebb16-264-11629See all my reviews

So I was reading this screen writing website, The Bitter Script Reader, and saw an interview with the director of Books that had the first episode of the show embedded, and I clicked on it. It was...okay. A little slow, felt like a lot of character set-up without any real pay-off but it was shot well and the dialog was good so I thought, what the hey - I'll click on episode 2. And then I clicked on episode 3. And by that point I was like, wow, this is really, really good. I was hooked. Once the two brothers (Josh Beren and Peter Douglas) get on screen together, they've got this legit brotherly chemistry that propels the show forward, and by the time I was to the end of episode 6 I was angry that it was over. The production value is not network TV quality, but it's way higher than the budget numbers on this site indicate - think of it as like a Sundance movie, or as a cable TV show. The acting is above average. And the writing and directing are just legitimately good. I saw the view-count numbers on YouTube, they're not that high, but I think with more publicity this show would find a devoted audience. Maybe the problem is that it feels more like TV than web, and that's part of it. And maybe it's because the first episode is a little slow, like I said. But for a low budget show, this is really, really good. These guys have a future in TV, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if this low budget show turns into something bigger.
