Con Man

This was a series I heard was good but didn't get around to watching until recently. And it does indeed turn out to be good!

Wray Nerely is an actor who starred in the cancelled short lived sci-fi series Spectrum. And so we follow him as he now lives on the convention circuit and comic store openings, trying to get a job anywhere that isn't just science fiction again. With him, we meet the other odd celebrities and behind the scenes people of conventions, and the fans put up with all of this.

More than a slight wink, Alan Tudyk wrote, directed and starred in this 13 part web series, which also features Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, Tricia Helfer, Sean Maher and... oh, a whole bunch of other people. All the main cast of Firefly get at least a cameo, including Joss Whedon.

This is fun with quite a few winks for people, and you'll be playing 'spot the cameo' (some subtle, some not so much). Definitely worth a look!
