Extras: There was a photogallery, a 7:47 minute long Behind the Scenes feature shot by Jamal Jhonson and edited by Baggus Young, and trailers.
Audio/Video Quality: Swans of L.A.: Season One was presented in a crisp anamorphic widescreen offering as shot by director Robby D. for Digital Playground. Robby D. wrote the show but Sir Richard Manwin III, Alex Tea, Mickey Doom, and Billy Da Kid were credited with working cameras, Joey Pulgadas and Keethan Hawke handling editing, and a large group of others providing their own technical assistance. There was a lot of texture and variation of lighting, like a “real” series instead of a porno with warehouse lighting, making it visually more appealing though some of the trysts could have used more lighting (my preference). The aural qualities by Seth Cardigan were modest but presented in a post production added 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround, the elevated bit rate of 448 Kbps not hurting the ability to hear the vocals, some pretty good music included though it wasn’t credited to anyone.
Body of Review: Digital Playground has long stood out as one of the biggest feature porn producers in the industry, popular director Robby D. coming out with a web series called Swans of L.A.: Season One, now released on a double disc set. The show had eight episodes of varying lengths and reminded me of “Crave”, the company’s last outing in a series format, my appreciation for the series format growing with each release. I don’t want to spoil the feature elements but they were handled quite well in most ways, enough screen time devoted to fleshing some aspects out as can be expected. Tasha Reign, Siri, Mia Malkova, and Anna Morna were the four leads vying for roles and enjoying sexual trysts as the opportunities arose, a lot of partial scenes included where the action ended sooner than a guy’s pop shot but basically, each episode had a single main sex scene of one on one sex, most of them with a male and a female.
The back cover said: “Porn star Tasha Reign is the hottest crossover star to hit the Hollywood scene. Paired with her best friends and fellow porn stars, Anna Morna and Mia Malkova, as well as her younger porn sister, Siri, they take the industry by storm, fucking fans and having fun doing it! Tasha's agent, James has received big news of a mainstream opportunity, but first she'll have to seal the deal with the director who happens to be more of a porn fan than serious about casting her. Will Tasha get the role or will it go to the biggest slut in the club? The director has all the power and the girls are willing to go along for the sex crazed and wild ride to guarantee Tasha's spot on the silver screen!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Going Mainstream: Siri, the thick redhead with the juicy and fleshy curves, was up first with John Strong in bed, the gal earning some money the old fashioned way as he handed her a stash of cash for services to be rendered. His hands caressed her voluminous frame and they kissed, her mouth drawn to her huge boobs before he gobbled her gash. Siri then knelt down to slob his knob, warming him up with a titty fuck as she took care of his turgid member quite well. Siri gave good eye contact and throated him with ease, the couple engaging in various forms of vaginal sex where she was active much of the time. It ended when she knelt to receive his wad of semen all over her face, some post coital head provided before more feature elements were included.
Scene Two: Unprofessional: Mia Malkova, the frisky youth with blond hair featured on the front cover in red (between Tasha and Siri), was up next with bartender Chad White. She was considered the careful wild one of the quartet of women, her skimpy black top and blue jean cutoff shorts sure looking hot on her curvy little frame. His hands were all over her and she reciprocated, the gal kneeling to blow him with a twinkle in her eye, her devoted oral causing his boner to grow substantially as she added in some hand to gland friction. He then ate her out front and back before another hummer led to some modestly active vaginal positions, the doggy draining his dragon as he unleashed his sperm all over her mug.
Scene Three: Thirsty Bitches: Allie Haze, a majorly cute gal with long dark hair and a frisky nature, then seduced bartender Tyler Nixon at the club by flirting and flashing her nipple, increasing amounts of nudity as the two hooked up while others (Ryan, Brandy) were otherwise preoccupied with each other physically. By then, Allie and Tyler were in the kitchen all over each other like teenage lovers, their attire coming off increasingly quickly and their kissing lingering longer and lower to please each other. He ate her hairy bush and she inhaled his modest cock orally, the gal impaling herself on his pecker all over the place as the couple was coated in sweat by the ending facial of semen.
Scene Four: A Swans Big Break: Tasha Reign, up next in a blue dress in bed, was all over Seth Gamble in the final scene of the first disc. They kissed and maintained solid eye contact as they became more intimate, the man removing her panties to dive between her legs to eat her out. Her bald beaver delighted him enough to spend a lot of time going down on her, Tasha’s mechanical moaning leading to some active riding and limited oral. While she let him do most of the work, her pussy looked good, Seth nutting on her lower torso as she rubbed it in.
Scene Five: Bailouts, Cops & Casting: Capri Cavanni, a gorgeous young lady with amazing eyes, was up next in the office with rambunctious agent Tommy Pistol, the man putting on a show to impress her while Tasha impressed cop Karlo to get out of a ticket. Tommy kneaded and massaged her tits before rubbing her growing wet spot, Capri overacting nearly as much to add some fun factor dynamic to the tryst as she sat on his desk. She then bent over and Tommy stuffed his face between her juicy ass cheeks, the prolonged oral leading to a titty fuck and blowjob before some heated vaginal penetration positions. She pushed back to meet his thrusts and earned whatever role he was casting, her hair flying all over as she jerked him off and rode some more, her tight snatch draining his dragon of seed all over her tits and neck.
Scene Six: More Thirsty Bitches: Dani Daniels, the super popular hotty, was up next in a skin tight colorful dress at the bar where she felt up Ryan Driller before pulling the top down to show her tits, her legs spread to as she masturbated her way into his heart. They ended up on a couch at a home setting, the two kissing and feeling each other up again as her tight ass came into wonderful view. She aggressively blew him before mounting his rod vaginally, her hips thrusting and ass pumping to get the most out of the guy. Her neatly trimmed bush and dripping snatch milked him dry in no time at all, the spooning and doggy pushing him over the edge to launch his load into her mouth.
Scene Seven: Swooning A Swan: Anna Morna and Gigi Allens were then up in an office to have the sole lesbian outing of the movie/series, their delicate clothing taken off to allow some feminine exploration of each other using tongues and fingers. Sure, they acted over the top about it, delving into pussy and sucking titty like it had been forever since they last tasted one, but seeing hot chicks kiss and do each other just never gets old for most of us straight guys. There was face sitting and some ass play too but the scene was largely a back to basics approach to two ladies getting off, the camera using a lot of close up shots which reminded me who the director was.
Scene Eight: Good Karma: Tasha Reign, dressed in a revealing pink top and tight blue jean shorts, was up last with her new cop friend Karlo Karrera, his all black outfit standing in stark contrast to hers as they started kissing in bed. He acted a bit reserved about what was unfolding but she managed to encourage him all the same, their kisses leading to caresses and more clothing coming off to suit their need for access. He played with her tits and more confidently than he had when he stopped her in a previous episode, Tasha then taking nearly half his cock in her mouth orally before he peeled her wet panties out of her ass crack to enjoy her himself, kissing her mouth until he went down on her to vaginally fuck. She was very active when she was on top of him, gyrating her hips and mashing uglies with him until he blasted her face with his seed.
Summary: Swans of L.A.: Season One by director Robby D. for Digital Playground was fun enough that it merited a rating of Recommended or better, the nearly 4 hours of entertainment value offering skimpy extras but a double disc of 8 episodes I think many will enjoy. The sexual trysts were fairly basic but at least some credible attempt was made to provide the kind of drama one might see on a night time soap opera, the performers doing a capable job in most cases of working with the material the director provided them with, meaning the feature elements worked at least as well as the sexual aspects of the flick. In short, Swans of L.A.: Season One might not be quite ready for prime time but the players offered up a wealth of sexual soap opera drama that fans of the cast should appreciate, all the scenes tied into one another in varying degrees of quality so check it out.
