Awesome web series, even if you're not a geek
on December 23, 2011
The Guild series just keep getting better and better. Even if you're not a geek, or haven't played multiplayer online games (MMORPGs), the wit, humor, and sarcasm of this series will leave you laughing LOL. If you are-- or know-- any of the above, it's even better. Felicia Day and her gang of misfit gamer buddies take the show on the road and raid a gaming convention. Heady pokes at the gaming industry, gamers, and geek conventions (ComicCon, DragonCon, MegaCon etc) abound. Sprinkle that with the usual social ineptness and pseudosexual tensions and neuroses of the Knights of Good, and you've got a verry enjoyable-- and HI-Larious-- romp through modern gamer culture. The guest star cameos really show what kind of support an indie webshow filmmaker with the brilliance of Felicia Day deserves-- even if you're not a Nathan Fillion fan (and who isn't). And as we say in the South, the cast are just precious... These are released on internet a la Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog (also a must see with Felicia Day) and are initially funded through internet viewing hits on the two (three if you count a gaming console) websites that host them, but then at long last are released on DVD so you can view them when the internet is down-- or if you don't have internet, like in our neck of the woods where the chicken houses will get internet before we do. Right, Amy? Robin? Buy one, buy all. You'll laugh so hard your heart will grow three sizes.
