Format: DVD
The original season of The Guild, which took online gamers by storm on YouTube, poked gentle fun at its target audience. But any mouse-clicking geek watching could tell that producer/writer/star Felicia Day was one of them. The game references, the acronyms and slag, and even the archetypes of each member of The Guild are instantly familiar--but fortunately the show expanded on the archetypes to create characters that offered real humor and a few surprises.

Season Two does everything the first season did, only better. Codex -- the character name an Ultima reference if you're an 80s computer gamer like me -- still delivers her webcam opening monologues; Zaboo still tactlessly pursues an unwelcome relationship; Vork still lives only for the game, tracking each penny of his expenses to maintain his frighteningly cheap lifestyle. But we learn a bit more about each character this time, as the story builds from what we saw in the first season and actually includes several threaded subplots as well. The primary focus is on love and lust, with a dose of betrayal and revenge for good measure. To Felicia Day's credit she's willing to evolve the characters' relationships and shake up the status quo by the end of the story.

The production value is far higher than in the first season. While some fans complain they miss home-spun feel of the YouTube videos, I thought it was great to see production quality matching network television sitcoms. There are more locations revealed, the most fun definitely being Vork's scary home in a bad part of town. I watched the season in HD Video on my X-Box with a nice sound system, and the show looked and sounded great.

In short, anyone who enjoyed the The Guild is in its first run will find lots to love in Season Two.

I wrote in my first review of Season 1 of The Guild how charming and spectacular the show is; not to mention, how shocking it is that the show has come so far as to be released on DVD. Everything about the first season can be repeated here, kind of negating a need for a review.

Season 2 begins pretty much right where Season 1 ends. Codex talks to her webcam, summarizing the events that happened after the first Season. The story that follows deals mostly with a server outage for their game, forcing the members of the Knights of Good to deal with the real world. What makes the second season so much better than the already excellent first is that, now that we've been introduced to the characters, they can be given room to grow. Much more character development is given in this season and the show allows each character to have their individual storylines and key moments, splitting screen time a bit more evenly. The witty writing and the hilarious situations that arise are still here, except I found this season even more humorous than the first.

The story climaxes at a hilarious party that leaves on a bittersweet cliffhanger of an ending. So it's a good thing that Season Three is just around the corner. If you haven't given The Guild a chance, go out and watch it now. It's hilarious, witty and a perfect celebration of MMO geek lifestyle, but it can also be appreciated by people who have no knowledge of the lifestyle. It's the rare beast that can cater to both the culture and those not in it.

I've spent 10 years working in the game industry and a good chunk of that time was for G4TV. When I first saw The Guild I realized that it was exactly the type of programming that a videogame-centric network needed. It understands its audience, it's genuinely funny, the characters are fun and lively, and I dare any geek not to fall in love with Felecia day's Codex. Season Two sees this show get the funding it deserves and the team behind it proves that they know what they're doing on everything from a production standpoint to the story. Funny, heartwarming, charming, and geeky, it's everything a geek like me would want.

I put off checking out "The Guild" for months because I assumed it would go over my head, not being a gamer. I was wrong. It's hilarious. And it can appeal to a broad audience. I even got my 67 year old dad hooked! Most DVD reviews review the series instead of reviewing the DVD itself. Suffice it to say the series is excellent but I won't go further into that.

The DVD package is impressively well-done given the budget constraints an indie production like this has. There are brief cast interviews. However, what's unique is brief interviews of the crew and extras as well. Our starstruck culture conveniently forgets that film is a collaborative medium. While we see the people on camera, there are loads of folks off-camera who contribute as well. It was interesting to get to know what some of their jobs are as well as seeing the way The Guild's quality material has attracted passionate fans that are willing to pitch in to help the series succeed (whether as extras, crew, donors, etc.).

There are gag reels, the script, audition footage, the Ep 1 table read, & fan art. The Ep 1 table read and audition footage gives you insight into how lines are re-written even up to the moment of filming and how line reads change as the actors become more familiar with things. From the beginning, The Guild has tried to be accessible to an international audience. With the help of fans, they've provided subtitles in several languages. There's also a cast commentary and creator/director/producer commentary. Though you can watch the series free on MSN Video (if you don't mind prostituting your eyeballs and putting up with the annoying interface), they've given you enough extras to persuade you to pony up for the DVD. And, really, the DVD is offered at a very reasonable price.
