I know what you're thinking: "Geeky web show? Oh, how unoriginal."
That's partially why I'm posting here. I want to be original. Let me give you some info. I've been producing short films for a few years now and would love to start a YouTube web show. The show would be non-fiction (think Philip DeFranco vs. "Red vs. Blue"), and we would want to talk about anything and everything geeky. Since I find it very rare that a husband and wife BOTH show up on a web show together, I thought it was high time someone tried it.
My question for all of you is what would get you to watch a web show hosted by a husband and wife duo? Would you like to see us argue about the worst part of the Avengers movie or would you like to see us provide relationship advice to geeky couples and singles? Or maybe you just want to hear us rant about non-geeky things, like the stupidity of college education?
Share any and all of your thoughts with me! I'm personally leaning towards the geeky relationship angle. PLEASE note that dirty answers, though not unexpected, will be disregarded.
Personally, I just enjoy the comical banter. Take the RT podcast for example. They will talk about anything FROM relationship advice, to arguing about the Avengers movie, to talking about a new videogame, but what makes it fantastic, is the jokes, the arguing, and just the witty one-liners that get sent back and forth. For me to listen to a podcast, it's a lot lett to do with content, and a lot more to do with personality.
I would definitely say that a good show is carried by it's host(s). There needs to be a dynamic that draws in the viewers. Take AotS for example (Attack of the Show on G4). I feel that show lost it's drive with Kevin Pereira leaving. He was an amazing host and essentially carried that show due to his pure awesome.
I enjoy watching YouTubers like JonTron or Egoraptor. Guys just really talking about games, but it's the personality they present that gives the entertaining edge.
We live in a brand new era of Media with the internet's existence, so content creators are allowed to think outside of the box and are able to break the mold of traditional content we'd see on T.V.
That's pretty much it. I mean, you want to base it around something similar, say video games, or relationships, or whatever, but if you stray from videogames to relationship stuff, then as long as it is a good transition, and feels natural to people listening, not "Hey, let's talk about this next", then your audience will keep listening, and coming back for more.
