CC tweeted last night that both Peter Reckell and Shawn Christian are joining the cast of Venice this season. She said that Peter is in a very different role and that Shawn will be working with the character of Guya.



My pal Peter Reckell is joining Venice this season in the most unlikely part...but that you'll have to wait for!


You know Shawn Christian is onboard to figure out what happened to the Colonel...and to play with @hbsguya. She paid me for that BTW


If this isn't where this belongs-- mods, please move it! Thanks!

LOVE THIS!!

Peter and Crystal, FTW!

Love that she calls him her pal.

I wonder what the role is Peter will be playing? She also said that Peter will be at the upcoming Venice event...which has a beach theme. (oh, and she also said he's a good kisser, but, I digress)

I tried to watch the first free eppi at the site, apparently my internet connection isn't fast enough. The audio wasn't playing at the same speed as the video, and the video was really choppy. I wrote an e-mail to their tech supt dept, and never got a return e-mail.

Is it just me and my connection, or is their video/sound on the series that bad for everyone??

When they first launched, video playback on their site was bad for most, because they had so much traffic. After the traffic died down a bit, I never had any issue with the video/sound quality, but I know some people still did. To try and help alleviate pirating, they disabled the buffering of the video, so I'm sure slower internet connections would have had problems viewing streaming video.

The entire first season is now only available via buying a DVD, but you can still catch the first episode on YouTube. I've never had any problem with viewing any of their vids on YouTube. CC stated in an interview not too long ago, that the 2nd season "may" be free. If so, they may just opt for YouTube for season 2. I know streaming the video was costing them a lot of money, which is why the 1st season is no longer available on their site.

Here's the first ep from YouTube:



I felt like their biggest weakness in season one was the writing, but based on CC's tweets and interviews, it seems like fixing the writing kinks has been their major focus for season 2. So I'm optimistically hopeful they're going to be hitting on all cylinders in season 2. Course after the last few months of Days, even the 1st season of Venice is looking better and better to me all the time.

And what exactly would be wrong with Venice? Have you seen it? I have. It's good. Looking forward to Peter and Christian joining. And the writing is good. Watch before you judge.

I just watched the 6 minute clip. Then I judged.

Then again, the first clip is never really good, but the dialogue is usually never that bad for any show I've ever seen.

A real web show, yes. Tons of people watch it. The first epi, one of my faves of the season, has over 200,000 hits on YT and a quarter mil in the first month on their site. Seeing as the show was created because of the Otalia fans, the pull is Crystal and Jessica (mainly CC for me). Simple as that. And I can't wait to see Peter on Venice!

I "Hope" not. However, if they did, I might like them more. So far, Nadia and Galen have been better on Venice than on Days, IMO.

Well I can understand that then, I like Make It Or Break It, and none of my friends watch it. Otalia a couple from CC's Previous Soap?

Yeah, Otalia (Olivia/Crystal and Natalia/Jessica) is their shipper name from Guiding Light.

I watched Venice in the beginning because I knew Galen Gering was going to play her brother, as the season went on the writing and directing got better... It turned out pretty good for a web series...

Interesting question, since I view Venice as having better production values, cinematography, music and acting then Days. I'd give a slight edge to Days in the writing category, although if I get another month of Carly saying "If you don't tell Daniel, I will" to Chloe, I'm giving the writing nod to Venice too.

For their first season, I don't think they did too bad. There's definitely room for improvement and hopefully we see that in Season 2.

Venice must have magical powers because I can barely stand Nadia and Galen on Days but I love them on Venice. Galen in particular is adorable and so likeable on there.

Wow if the acting improved by those two I might give it a shot, because I happen to think Galen and Nadia are the weakest actors on the show.

Kudos to Peter and Shawn for pulling in more work. Though I've never seen one drop of this show besides the night it was free to the public I wish them the best.
