AIDAN 5 blew me away.
This inventive mix of crime noir and hard scifi drama is without a doubt one of the most imaginative web series available.
Clones are created for a variety of purposes, such as: manual labor, to bolster the military, and other more perverse uses.
The series follows the exploits of hard-boiled police detective James Aidan as he attempts to solve the most mystifying and personal case of his career - who is killing his clones?
Armed with an intelligent, provocative plot with sensational acting, AIDAN 5 sucks you into its gritty, harsh world within the first few minutes of the opening scenes.
But one of the project's crowning achievements is its unique visual style.
Filmed only in black-and-white, the production team ingeniously integrates live actors with sets which are comic book like sketch art - gorgeous, realistic, and highly detailed art.
Though the concept may sound clunky on paper, its execution succeeds beautifully, as you can see from the series trailer:
Last, but not least, the entire cast and production team worked on a VOLUNTEER basis with a non-existent budget to complete AIDAN 5.
The result is one of the best scifi dramas I've ever seen on the web. It's just another testament to what can be accomplished solely with passion, talent, skill and dedication.
A total of 16 episodes between an average of 5 to 13 minutes in length were completed for the first season.

I highly recommend this wildly entertaining series.
