Has anyone followed this at all?  It follows the stories of a guild of people both from "real life" and in their MMORPG guild.

I just picked up the comic book the other day and found it quite intriguing.  Apparently it's been running as a webisode show for quite some time.

I will forgive you for not having the Felicia Day geek crush, in which case you would have probably have heard of this a long time ago. If you have Netflix you can watch the first two seasons as one long movie without the intro/credit breaks. It's very funny - you get bonus laughs if you know MMOs, but its not required.

Pretty much the rest of the internet. My only problem with the show is there needs to be WAY more of it.

It was this moment that took the movie from being a little ho-hum to “holy shit, did that shark just eat a plane!?”

I watched the first half of Season 1 and enjoyed it thus far.

The comic book, for those interested, is actually the prequel story - telling how she became involved in the game and guild from the very beginning, so it's set at least a year or 2 prior to the series.   thumbsup

this show is a documentary about the old days of my WoW guild. I swear to god we had every single one of those people. Except it was a couple that didn't watch their kid. and that's what they called him, "the kid". it was never, oh i think we should feed bob, or bob needs a diaper change. always the kid. like billy the kid or something. some of the scenarios that happen between game and real life happened in my guild too. i think one of the writers was in my guild.

Show is great though. Hoping to catch up with some of them at blizzcon, if they're attending.

Watched all three seasons a few weeks ago off of Netflix Streaming.  I'm definitely looking forward to watching the new episode this evening.

Probably because:

World of Warcraft, Everquest II, LOTRO, Rift, If its MMO, it goes in here.

Or may rittchard was really really drunk.
