Everyone's life us unique. There are people on every end of the spectrum-- some like Star Trek: The Original Series, some like Star Trek: Voyager. It's all about your personality and interests. Sometimes people like to talk about their interest, to the point where their friends are like, "Ghaa, would you quit talking about vintage luggage and Doctor Who? WHO CARES if you found a TARDIS blue train case?" (If only, if only, my friends). But who cares? At least you're living the fANNAtabulous life. Follow me on Twitter as @AnnaStarMoon
Meet my latest obession. Apparently, The Guild was originally a web series that had really short episodes, but they put them together into block seasons on Netflix, so I can while away the hours watching people with worse social skills than I without having to click on the next episode! Huzzah.
The Guild follows a merry band of RPG-obsessed friends who have, until the first epidsode, never met in real life. Then one day, “Zaboo” (everyone on this show goes by their Avatar names) shows up on “Codex“‘s doorstep and everything changes. Soon they become tight-knit, facing adversity in-game and out. They still kind of hate each other, which is understandable because they’re all incredibly obnoxious and/or neurotic.
Aside from Vork, one of the most intriguing things about The Guild is who guest-stars on it. The fifth season is packed with people who are, to the nerd populace, kind of like celebrities. Here are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head: That guy who played Mal on Firefly and the weird preacher guy on Season 7 ofBuffy,Whatsername who played Faith onBuffy,Tom Lenk who played Andrew onBuffy (noticing a theme here?), main character dude fromEureka, NEIL GAIMON, BRENT SPINER, and the guy who plays Winston onNew Girl.
I know. “Shut the front door! No way all those awesome people are on one show!” You’re thinking to yourself. But I swear that all of this, nay, all of this and more, is true. And there’s one last “celebrity” appearence that I didn’t even catch at first, the difference in this actor is so great. Wil Wheaton—who played Wesley Crusher onStar Trek: The Next Generation!—plays the semi-evil Fawkes on this show. It’s crazy! Not only does he have abeard, but Fawkes uses the F-bomb approximently every ten seconds. Hello! Whatever happened to chunky sweaters and folding the fabric of space-time? Sigh. Kids these days.
Anyway, here’s an unofficial trailer forThe Guild.Enjoy!
