Afternoon killer: "Bring Down the Moon"

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2007 at 11:32 AM

In his media column this week, David Koon writes about "Bring Down the Moon," a fairly awesome soap opera that airs on cable access in Fayetteville about four, love-tangled college students.

"Bring Down" is the brainchild of Raymond Burks, a 22-year-old soap-obsessed senior at UA Fayetteville, who's soap-love is, apparently, irony-free. As he told David “You're always going to have people who take soaps at their camp value. What we want to go for is a style where we're aware of the fact that we're a soap opera, but we take the craft of soap opera seriously.”

I've posted the first episode above and the following five after the jump. All in all there's probably 30 minutes of footage. Aside from a gratuitous PG-13 sex scene in the last episode and some language, it's probably relatively safe for work, aside from, you know, the issue of watching a soap opera at work.

I'm way hooked.

ALSO: Here's a link to the pilot, which is also pretty awesome if a little disorienting. It features several different actors in the main roles, works in (AMAZINGLY) the moon connection and reveals that David's full name is David Berman. I'd watch it last.
