Murderous Twist on Social Networking

Many of you that know my husband Adam J. Kovitz well may have heard about his involvement in interactive Poison Pen murder mysteries produced by his parents Susan and Joel. While I've always been a lesser fan of the mystery genre, Harper's Globe has changed my mind.

For 6 episodes of the CBS mystery event Harper's Island I have been trying, quite unsuccessfully to put together the pieces and search for clues. While admittedly I am not even an amateur sleuth, as past film student I do have the (often annoying) knack for seeing all too quickly what the director is trying to get at, so by the time it is reinforced in the plot a few more times I feel like they're beating a dead horse. Finally I have found a show that keeps me guessing and asking more questions. After seeing a good number of the suspects meet their early demise I finally, as instructed in the commercials that my husband likes to fast-forward through, went to the Harper's Globe website.

"Who are these people?" I asked myself not recognizing any of the main characters on the pages. "Who the heck is Robin?" Well, I got over the initial shock of disorientation and marched on even though it was quite excruciating for me to watch the blog videos because my computer is ancient and needed to be resuscitated after continually crashing due to memory overload. Fortunately it was only a technical issue and pencil and pad in hand I persevered and, wow, it was hardly the same show!

I totally love what they're trying to do to create an interactive experience. Life is made up of so many points of view and the people that created Harper's Globe get that. Weary of an omniscient author or director creating a seamless account to lull you into complacency? At Harper's Globe you can find a wiki of character and plot information, profiles of the characters, shocking and provocative video and social networking with other fans. How cool is that!

No spoilers here. The past episodes are online, everything else will far exceed any expectations. Enjoy the technotainment!

I started following Harper's Globe via the Lonely Girl video series. I been following like the 3rd or so week it started and I have loved it. I have made tons of friends from it and enjoy meeting other fans of the show. I also like how we are part of our own side story on the side.
