If you're looking for some hilarity based on awkward first impressions and dating situations, then 'Missed Connections The Series' is the thing for you.

Borrowing the name from the notorious ads people post online to try to reconnect with others they recently met, Missed Connections The Series follows the story of redhead Jamie Nichols as she tries to navigate through the world of modern dating.

Though the initial pilot of Missed Connections The Series would have viewers believing it's a non-sequitur show featuring funny skits based on hilarious ads posted by people, the current incarnation of the show actually follows a linear narrative structure. The webisodes currently posted are entertaining enough to warrant anyone's Youtube surfing time.

The production value is also fairly high in the series. It even has its own opening theme song. Stats for Disastrous Dating Webisodes Trending: Older & Chilly
