About Holliston

Two down and out aspiring filmmakers struggle with life, career, and the opposite sex as they attempt to make it out of the small New England town they are trapped in and into the big time.

Did anyone go to any of the sneak screenings?

I got to see 2 episodes of Holliston when Adam, Joe, Laura and Cori were in Holliston. The show is so freakin amazing and I wish DirecTV had Fearnet so I could watch more. I loved it, Its so cleverly written and is hilarious. did anyone else go to see the sneak peek?

I was there!  Got dragged there last minute as I didn't even hear about it until a few hours before.  I don't know what I expected, but this is easily one of the best comedy shows I've ever seen.  I don't really like sitcoms as I find the "comedy" in them to be forced and not funny at all, but I loved how at the screening the audience was laughing so hard that I missed half of the jokes. The family in front of me looked like they couldn;'t breathe!  It was funny to watch them.   Need to see it again in the privacy of my own home so that I can hear it all.  I got my picture with Adam Green afterwords, he gave me advice on my radio show (I do a show on WHHB, Holliston's station, and he was like the king of that station when he was a student here so he gave me some tips on how to build my audience), and he was so normal and nice to everyone.  I figured he'd be burned out by the time I got up to him in that huge hour long line to meet him but he was so full of energy and so happy.  I admit I choked up a bit in his introduction when he almost started crying saying "I look out at all of you and realize that I am home."  The last thing I expected in going to see a sitcom at my Town Hall was for it to be such an emotional night.  An amazing event that i will never forget.  Thank you to the town officials who put this on- it's probably the coolest thing you guys have ever done for Hollyrock.  I hope the cast comes back here again if they do more seasons of the show.  I'm a fan for life.  I also want to marry Cory English.  So beautiful and so sweet in real life.  I don't want to sound like a message board troll, but I expected the acting to be sub par at best when I didn't know who any of the actors were.  But these four are better than the cast of 70's Show or How I Met Your Mother (the only other sitcoms I've ever watched).  They nailed the "sitcom acting" but also had some genuine moments of emotion.  That scene with Adam and Cory at the end of the first episode they showed really hit home.  I've been there (recently) and Adam nailed it when he confessed his love for her.  I felt so bad for both of them.

How funny was the Market Basket bit!!!!  And the hamster??!!!!!!  LOL!!!  More cat, please.

I know!! and the fact that he has Oderus from Gwar playing his imaginary friend was just amazing. I was the girl who asked the first question when he did the Q&A about the diffeerences between doing a TV show script and a movie script. I actually met Adam before this at Rock and Shock and he really is just an awesome down to earth guy. I'm not even from Holliston but we made the hour trek from Fitchburg anyway cuz I had been looking forward to it forEVER and it was so worth it. One of the best nights I ever had. Plus my conversations with Adam are always a pleasure to have and Joe is so freakin funny. :)

Hi, I just received Fearnet's email and I read about a new show called "Holliston." I have two questions. Does anyone know if those sneak screenings would be on Youtube. Also does anyone know if this showis supposed to take place in Massachusetts, or at least New England????  Thanks so much.......   Laughing

theyre not on youtube. I don't think Adam would want the show to leak for the whole world to see illegally. and yes, the show is supposed to take place in Holliston MA where Adam grew up and when you watch the show there are many jokes that only Masshole New Englanders are going to understand. Also while most of the show is shot on a hollywood set, all of the exterior shots are actually shot in Holliston Massachusetts. Hope this answers all your questions.
