5.0 out of 5 stars A 2009 Amazon Editors' Top 100 DvD Pick!, November 6, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Guild: Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)
"The Guild" made the Amazon Editors' Picks: The Top 100 DVDs and Blu-ray Discs of 2009, IMO, for a very good reason. This is a top notch comedy series -- currently, my very favorite.

The story behind the "The Guild" fascinates me, and fully demonstrates the potential of the internet for a truly creative, and dedicated team to make and distribute high quality entertainment on an amazingly modest budget (particularly early on).

At the center of this creative effort is Felicia Day, a 21st Century 'Renaissance woman', who inspired a Wired online writer to say: "the wonderful girl geeks in history, like Ada Lovelace, Marie Curie and Felicia Day." Felicia Day writes the scripts, has the lead actress role (Codex), co-produces, and promotes this series. IOW, she does it all. I find it truly remarkable what a young woman's (self-professed) 'addiction' to online gaming blossomed into, and how a series that was once supported by PayPal donations eventually picked up the support of Microsoft.

As others have mentioned, while you can watch this online for free, you will get better quality from the DvD as well as many extras, which are well worth viewing. And, you will help support a very worthy effort, IMO, one which is at the forefront of what I think is a new media revolution.

I can't wait for Season 3 to complete, and go to DvD, along with the incredible "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar" music video, and the very funny Halloween special episode.

Bottom line: buy this for yourself and your friends. You don't have to play a MMOG to enjoy it; although, my guess is some who do play those games (like myself) may enjoy it even more so. :-)
