Adam Goldman lives in one of those Brooklyn prewar buildings near Prospect Park where the buzzer doesn’t always work, and the vestibule and lobby doors are frequently left unlatched. “But I feel safe here,” said Mr. Goldman, the creator, director and star of “The Outs,” the cultish online TV series that chronicled the dissolution of a romance between two gay 20-something men in contemporary Brooklyn. “This apartment is a step up.”

Pretty good article about Adam Goldman and his Brooklyn apartment. I enjoyed his Web series, The Outs, immensely. I thought it was so well-written and acted. It was witty, urbane, gripping and had an edge. It was the opposite of the bland fodder which comes out of Hollywood. That’s why the note in this piece that Goldman now has “representation in L.A.” makes me want to cringe a little. I hope the Left Coast doesn’t eat him.

The “Chanukah Special” is terrific. A great cap to the series. Beautifully done on every level.

Today is the release day of the last episode of The Outs, the fantastic Web series chronicling the lives of young folks in Brooklyn. It’s achingly well-written and acted. It’s also so nice to see terrific stories about gay people where they are just part of the fabric of the landscape and not “quota fiction.” You know: Insert funny gay friend here.

WARNING: THE OUTS WILL HOOK YOU. YOU WILL WANT TO START AT THE BEGINNING AND WATCH THEM ALL. SEVERAL TIMES.

I’m just sayin.’

I’ve been riffing lately on the emerging importance of the Web in storytelling on scales both large and small. We are just at the beginning of trying to figure out how to do it, how to sustain it, how to fund it, and how to build an audience. The Outs and creators Adam Goldman and Sasha Winters have, perhaps inadvertently, become one of the standards in this new world that we can look to and learn from. O, pioneers!

Take it good one.

P.S. — I’m on the road this week and no time to sit down and watch the final episode, “Over It,” so, don’t ruin it for me!
