The road to recovery can be rough, requiring focus and commitment. With the support from friends, the hardships are alleviated to some point… This web series doesn’t deal with drug or alcohol, but deals with a more common and often times more emotionally brutal reason for recovery. Break-ups. May not be a popular belief, but the pain of heartache can be felt both ways. I mean in men, as well as women. Which brings us to Parrish Diaz, the main character in ’12 Steps to Recovery.’ Recently broken up with his girlfriend, he finds himself in a dark apartment filled with heartache. When two of his friends show up, they both come to a mutual decision. To get Parish back on his feet and out in the world again, he must complete the 12 steps to recovery…

Rarely do I like a series with in the first three episode, but the second episode got me. The situation for this episode was handled with respect and heart. It is unfair to attempt to compare the differences between this and a Sit-Com, but was pleased they didn’t go for a quick gag, or the degrading route.
Every episode is a “step”, of course. As of this review, they are half way through. They show the variety of whats out there in the dating world with great characters, scenarios and humor. The writing & acting is good, pacing is smooth and shows some heart mixed with the comedy. Truly is a good web series.
