HUSBANDS THE SERIES began life in 2011 as eleven two-minute episodes for the Internet, chronicling the early days of the marriage between performer Cheeks (Brad “Cheeks” Bell) and star baseball player Brady (Sean Hemeon).

Most people’s mental image of Hercules from Greek mythology is of a tall, muscular, handsome demigod who can flatten tall monsters with a single punch.

He teams up with a pre-Argonauts Jason (Jack Donnelly), a pre-snakes Medusa (Jemima Rooper) and a pre-mathematics-changing-theory Pythagoras […]Read On »
