Crackle is Sony‘s online original web video site that was launched last year to thunderous worldwide attention – oh, wait, that was something else. Crackle’s launch was actually only noticed by a handfull of Sony employees and friends of the content creators.
But that hasn’t stopped Sony from rolling out a whole new “season” of original short-form programming they wouldn’t bother trying to sell to a legitimate TV network.
“Crackle launched “season 2″ of its C-Spot comedy web series this morning. The good news? It’s dropped most of the dead weight from season one and kept The Roadents. The bad news? Most of the replacement shows still aren’t funny.”
Tilzy is a bit kinder, noting:
“So whether your a gamer, a wananbe-comic, a pretentious musician, or a chick in need of a date, Crackle’s got stuff cookin for you.”
While they do have a broad range of programming if you happen to be in one of those demos I can’t say any of it is something that would cause you to sit up and take notice, much less help spread the word.
As with so much web programming these days, none of these shows seem to have any legitimate marketing scheme and are likely to fall into obscurity long before anyone notices they aren’t all that entertaining.
