A bit off topic, but is there a way to check this out in Canada? The official site (through Logo) like all of their video content is region blocked to the US (which seems counterproductive for a webseries.) Congrats regardless, though I was hoping for The Outs out of the ones I was able to watch.

Van Hansis always does does his best when he acts, so this is no surprise to me.
