Title: Buried by the Bernards
When things revolve around death, it becomes a little morbid, but this web series is so much fun as it captures the lighter side of things as well as the drama.

With family dramedy at the centre, this web series is a giggle with its tongue-in-the-cheek elements. Pretty enjoyable!
