I have observed that, with (very) few exceptions, webseries have the following qualities, in order of frequency:
- Bad scripts.
- Bad acting.
- Bad production values.
- Bad music.
Any combination of the above, but the first two are the winners by a huge margin and generally go together.
I have been doing this as research since I'm writing one.
The exceptions are created by people who already in the industry.
Comedy helps but only if it's actually funny.
