With over 50 million worldwide views, THE GUILD is one of the most popular episodic comedies on the World Wide Web and now it’s back! Season 3 finds our favorite Guild falling apart after the disastrous party that ended Season 2. Waiting outside a gaming store for their game’s latest expansion pack, they encounter the Axis of Anarchy, a rival Guild led by Fawkes (Wil Wheaton, Star Trek: The Next Generation). Vork resigns in shame, leaving Codex (Felicia Day) in charge of keeping the Guild together in the face of Axis of Anarchy’s efforts to destroy them. Will the Guild members overcome their differences to survive? This DVD includes all 12 episodes from Season 3, along with an epic amount of exclusive bonus material not seen on the Internet.

No spoilers from me; this time around we have Codex (Felicia Day) attempting to rekindle the "Knights of Good" sense of unity by finding a common enemy. Things don't go as planned and it makes for some of the best episodes yet.
There are also a lot of extras, my favorite being the "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar" music video! Just great!
Everyone knows that all of these episones can be found for free elsewhere on the Internet, but buy them here and support these great actors and hopefully they will continue to produce this very enjoyable series. I also like that Amazon included the "On Demand" episodes when you buy the DVD (perhaps for a limited time?). This lets us watch it on our PCs or on our TV via our Roku HD-XR Player.
A very clever and fun series that isn't just for gamers!
I think that buying the DVD is a great way to show support for Felicia and all of her cast mates. Plus I like the idea of supporting something that hasn't sold out to the commercial industrial complex... oh, wait... didn't she make a video about that?
Anyway, Felicia is awesome and I just love her work, please make more!
The third season introduces the "Axis of Anarchy." This collection of laughably goofy X-treme types are all perfect adversaries for The Knights of Good: a wannabe warrior-poet, a 'roided-out cop with rage issues, an angsty goth diva, a "professional" gamer, (complete with gorgeous attendant) and an obviously closeted fabric salesman who never seems to get the cool one-liners quite right. In any other show these misfits would be the heroes struggling against the "jocks" or something, but in "The Guild" they are the cool kids making life for the hapless Knights of Good quite miserable.
The actors playing members of the Axis do an excellent job. Wil Wheaton's casting may appear to be fanservice, but he does an excellent job as the Axis frontman, Fawkes. I will be very interested to see if Fawke's overblown bravado ends up being a complete sham or if he'll stay the same in Season 4.
It should be said that, as usual, the writing is incredibly solid and the core cast continues to be as loveably flawed as can be. Being partial to Zaboo myself, (sigh...yeah he's the one I relate to) it was hilarious and unexpected to see his manhood crushed and rebuilt in the course of a handful of episodes. Clara's plot was even stronger this year. (why do I feel like Clara really exists somewhere in real life?) Bladezz takes a beating (but I'd really like to see more of his character) and sadly Tink's role is pretty diminished. If I fail to mention the chracters of Vork and Codex it's only because they are their usual hilarious selves. (although Vork's arc takes him out of his comfort zone...and what a small zone that is!)
And I'm a normal person! Swear!
There's maybe three comedy shows on actual television that are worth their salt at any given time, most of them created by or inspired by a Ricky Gervais production. If I have to drop 15 bucks a year to keep The Office on the air, I'd do it. So I don't see any reason why I shouldn't do it for The Guild.
Every season always turns out to be a thoroughly enjoyable hour-plus of television, in stand-alone episodic format. And with all the extra features, commentary, etc, it's a solid buy with plenty of rewatchability (because yes, that's a word now).
Can't wait for season 4. Who knew Codex was such a big slut?!
