5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly better than the first season!, May 7, 2009
This review is from: The Guild - Season Two (DVD)
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.
