While the show is set up with character-themed episodes, the cast’s lives intersect often, which is pretty much on point for any group of queer folks in the same city. A little bit gritty, funny, and most definitely addictive, Sidetrack makes a great addition to the growing world of queer-centric web series. You can watch the entire first season now on YouTube, and check out the show’s Twitter account for cool profiles on the cast, playlists and more.
