Well, I would say the best thing to do would be to head over to the CrashPadSeries site and check out the tour. It is free and it gives you a very accurate sense of what the site and content is like when you get a membership and sign on in.
The site is home to lesbians and queers and gays and transgenders all in one alternative place. There are photos and videos and behind-the-scenes content and it is all produced with an artistic eye and a true sense of the community for which they are making it.
There are 186 videos (93 scenes plus 93 behind the scenes vids). The movies can all be streamed right on the site or you can download them in either an M4V file or a Windows Media file. Video quality ranges from good to great. There are also photo sets with each episode, but they appear to be vid caps (although very good-looking ones).
Besides the pics and vids there is a nice "characters" section where you can browse the performers and see what each of them has to offer. There is also a blog with interesting and pertinent information and writings, and a forum that appears to have a nice community of members chatting and commenting.
There isn't anything dated besides the upcoming video, but based on that, it looks like they are updating weekly with a new vid (movies and behind-the-scenes vids are separate updates). There is enough to check out right away and then with the community aspect you will be able to spend a good amount of time on the site between updates.
As for the membership fee, you will see that there are three options. The middle one allows you to check out the photos and the streaming videos. The cheapest one only gives you access to the pictures and the most expensive one adds a download video option.
The full service price tag is a little higher than I would have liked to see, but Crash Pad Series is a strong site. With all the content, forums, blogs and respect for the genre it will surely make fans of anyone interested in what they are offering.
