What can I say about The Guild? It’s just a great little internet show type thing. I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s one of those acquired taste type things as it’s mainly aimed towards the geek audience. Luckily, I fall under that category. It centers around the gaming subculture, more specifically the MMORPG population. I don’t really fall in that category cause I never really played a legitimate MMORPG, but I did play Duels for a significant amount of time and I was an active part of a guild. I regret to say I was an officer in the Fight Club Guild in Duels. Enough about me, I’m getting off subject. So yea, basically The Guild follows a guild as they try and balance their online gaming with their seemingly interconnected real life lives. Those that don’t know geekism and geek culture might get a lost or put off by this, but those that do get it will just love it. It definitely doesn’t hurt that Felicia Day aka Codex is quite a good looking redhead; hell I find her awkward geekiness kind of hot. Every member of the guild has their unique personas. Codex is the most regular person but still suffers from her agoraphobia. Then there’s Zaboo who is the hardcore geek that’s utterly obsessed with Codex. Clara, the bad mother who would rather play the game than raise her kids. Bladezz, who is basically the immature teenage boy that trolls everyone else. Tinkerballa who is the asian gamer who is all up on her tech. Finally, there is Vork, who is the guildmaster. basically he is the middle aged man whose life revolves around the game. The back and forth banter, witty dialogue, awkward moments, and innate humanity is what gives the show its appeal. Put simply, The Guild is a geek’s dream show. Kinda makes me want to play duels again….kinda….
The guild season 3 is the best of the series in my opinion. It made me laugh more than the other season. The dialogue is more witty and quirky as the past season and its more of a geekfest than ever before. Basically this season revolves around a new expansion pack for their MMORPG, and they run into a rival guild, The Axis of Anarchy. The Axis is perfectly annoying and out there. Codex is as quirky and awkward as ever. Geekdom is here. All they want to do is play the expansion and with several guild member out of commission, they have to find away to resolve the issue. Codex awkwardly leads the guild in this hilarious third season. Watch it if you’re a geek or if you want a taste of geekdom. Warning though, geekisms are plenty and gook jokes run rampant. That’s just the way I like it.
