"Misdirected" is a comedy mystery web series about a girl with amnesia relying on her friends to reintroduce her to her life...though, by 1st season's end she's started to suspect they're not being completely honest with her.
The Complete First Season of Misdirected
"Misdirected" is a comedic web series that asks: If you were reintroduced to your entire life, what would you really think of it? The show follows a young woman faced with a life that is totally unfamiliar to her, and the awkwardness that comes with trying to unravel it all.
We start out watching a woman (Lauren Mora) sitting in the waiting room of a hospital holding a potted yellow flower in her lap. A man (John T. Woods), who is looking through a magazine, is sitting in the far chair beside her. They engage in light polite conversation. She says she is waiting for someone to pick her up and he says he is visiting someone who was in an accident.
It turns out that he is the one picking her up and that she is the one who was in the accident, however, she has no recollection of who he is or even who she is...
Imagine yourself having just awakened from a dream, only this dream is your life, you are in a dazed state and not fully aware of your surroundings. Suddenly, a happy young man encrouches upon you and exictedly explains that he is your best friend and that you are who he says you are and that he knows who you are even though you aren't quite awake yet.
From the hospital he takes you to what he says is your home and introduces you to what he says are your friends. Humoursly engaging interactions between him and the people he says are your friends ensue and you find yourself in a whirlwind of confusion yet illumination.
Congratulations, you've just been Misdirected.
