By Terry Mesnard VINE VOICE on May 7, 2009

The fact that I am able to type a review here at Amazon for The Guild is kind of amazing. Considering this, the first season, was funded by Felicia Day with donations/help from the audience and considering how unlikely such a collaboration is, it's amazing that the show has become such a hit, spawning additional seasons and a more mainstream acceptance. Not that it should be very surprising since it's probably one of the funniest and heartfelt shows I've seen on either the web or TV.

Stepping back a bit, The Guild is a show about...well, an online guild of friends who live in the local area but only know each other through their online alter-egos. Cyd/Codex (Felicia Day) is struggling with what appears to be an addiction to their current MMO, dealing with a psychiatrist who hangs up on her and a gnome warlock who shows up at her front door, thinking they are romantically involved.

What works for The Guild is the fact that the characters are so vivid and played pitch perfectly by the entire cast. Yes, they verge on walking stereotypes, but the hilartiy and the love for these people (some of the kinds of people I know personally) gives the show a much needed heart. What's great is that, while a gaming geek will get the most enjoyment out of the show, I have shown this to friends who think gaming is limited to Rock Band and they, too, kept coming back, week after week, to watch it.

You can go view these shows online, still, either via the website, MSN or Xbox Live. I'm personally glad that there's now another option in this Amazon exclusive. Give it a chance. I bet you'll come back laughing.

The Guild is about people addicted to online gaming. They neglect their own lives, their children, their personal needs, all in service of their avatars, their game personas. Gamers can talk to but cannot see each other, but this guild of six decides to meet in the real world, and thus the central conflict that drives the story.

The Guild was created and written by Felicia Day (a gamer herself) of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame. She is also the star of The Guild and her character, Codex, introduces each episode. Felicia is one smart cookie, toting bachelors' degrees in both mathematics and music from the University of Texas, where she entered at sixteen and was valedictorian of her graduating class.

The Guild as a web series is on the leading edge of a wave of the future. As network television increasingly buckles under to reality and game shows, which cost much less to produce, good series are increasingly going under or going to the web. The Guild, in my opinion, is the best series ever. Felicia is simply adorable as Codex. She's witty, insightful, and naive all at once. The other characters are also unique, original, and are like no one you'll ever seen on a major network. It's just simply the most refreshing entertainment I've seen in a long, long time.

Perhaps the most appealing quality of The Guild is how personal it comes across. At the beginning of each episode (which are five to eight minutes in length) Felicia, as Codex, speaks directly to you, the viewer. She explains what has been going on with her since the last episode and foreshadows a little of the action to follow. These short introductions remind me so much of something out of Shakespeare. They are so smart and classy. The editing of these initial monologues is also artistically interesting.

The Guild is a comedic gem lovingly directed at and about geeks and gamers, but the cast is so great together and Felicia Day (Codex) is so charming and lovely that this show would be hard for anybody NOT to love. Filled with in-jokes and geeky subtext, every episode is an absolute riot to watch over and over again.

I'm serious! Don't get this. Instead, get the new disc that collects all the content of Season One and Season Two. It is cheaper and more convenient. While I dearly love this show, there is not a lot of content. It would be much nicer to have all the content on one disc than having to switch from one disc to another.

THE GUILD is one of the most successful direct-to-Internet series yet produced. It was created and is written by and stars Felecia Day, who starred, along with Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion, in what is by far the most successful Internet-first project ever, DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG. The series concerns a group of people who would normally have nothing to do with one another, but have been drawn together by playing World of Warcraft together. For though who have never played WoW (I suppose such individuals exist), one of the things that you can do in WoW is form guilds who quest together. From personal experience I can attest that you end up forming online friendships with people you normally would not spend much time with. If you have played WoW, the show has lots of subtleties that will seem familiar and fun. I've intentionally avoided meeting anyone that I play online with, but these poor souls decide to meet in person. (Though I never join guilds for person reasons. I detest PvP [Player versus Player] and WoW is structured so that if one member of a guild fights a member of another guild, all members of each guild are thereby opposed to one another. Since I could not find a way to be a member of a guild and not PvP, I played solo, which luckily isn't that hard to do in WoW. BTW, I stopped playing WoW after maxing out several characters because of the staggering amount of time that gaming can absorb.
