    Sadly Over-hyped

    Highly Overrated But Still Good

    Absolutely Fantastic

    It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.

    This series is intelligent, creative, hilarious and... very, very short! If there was only one thing I didn't like about it, it's that there isn't more of it to go around. But thus is the paradox of the web-series.This show can appeal to not just a niche, but a full subculture, a vastly ever growing community of people: known affectionately as "The Gamers". "The Guild" takes you into the lives of 6 gamers who all play the same unnamed MMORPG on a 'locals only' server. Thusly all characters happen to live near each other as well as play with each other in "The Game". The series starts out with them first meeting each in real life, and the wacky adventures that proceed.Most of the characters are top-notch. Codex's (Felicia Day) charm is unforgettable. She stars in the series and is as beautiful as she is painfully uncertain with herself. She is and will continue to be a fun and interesting character. Felicia Day is also the writer, producer and creator of The Guild and will clearly be someone to look forward to seeing in other projects in the future! Vork (Jeff Lewis) & Zaboo (Sandeep Parikh) have a comedic-chemistry that is unmatched even in many higher budget productions. If you don't mind conversations heavily laden with web/game lingo, then you will likely find these two to be a goldmine of LOL's.

    Self directed, produced, written and even acted by many of the cast, this series of shorts brings life of online role playing games and the culture it carries to light in such a hilarious manner. I couldn't help but laugh at every episode and try to see another guild member of mine in The Guild's characters. I was in stitches from the first episode and couldn't stop watching until the season(s) were over. Fantastic acting with humor that is original. Not just original in the sense of hey they went somewhere else with that... ABSOLUTELY original, like when someone finally invented the wheel. There is nothing like it.If you know of someone, heard of someone, or you are that someone that plays Role Playing Games online, no matter the title of the game, you will see yourself in one of these character, or even a bit of yourself in all of them. I am amazed at how they zoned into the in-game language used and managed to depict life under a headset so well. If you cannot laugh at this series, then I doubt there is anything you would find humorous.Time well spent!!!!!

    Have you ever had one of those moments where you've said to yourself, "I just need to take a step back, rethink my life and make some changes. Maybe unplug for a while, get out and breathe some air that hasn't gone through the processor fan of my computer and enjoy life again"? These people haven't. This video is fun and watching makes me realize that I truly have grown up.Plot: Vork Gives control of the guild funds to Bladezz in hopes that it will make him a stronger player. Bladezz then posts a video blackmailing the other members and steals the money. The series is spent trying to get Bladezz to give back the money. In a secondary plot, Zaboo becomes stalker obsessed with Codex and moves in with her; much to the dismay of Codex and Zaboos' mother. Zaboos mother comes to retrieve him and well….Don't want to give away too much of the secondary plot.The chemistry between Felicia Day and Sandeep Parikh is amazing. Comic timing is dynamic and leaves you wanting more at the end of each episode. Fans wonder how they can get involved in this. SUBSCRIBE!!! Its on Youtube. Watch it, love it, just don't live it!

    This hilarious series addresses the real "lives" people spending large amounts of time with each other but only online.Told in shorts, the series' blazing pace is maintained by Felicia Day's manic character trying to work out problems like her friend's characters dying as she is on the phone with her psychiatrist about her obsessive game playing or finding 'Zaboo', another character in her online guild who she has flirted with in game, suddenly appearing on her doorstep in real life.The episodic format develops the characters as much in sight gags as in dialog. Never having quite enough time to fully explore any of the many nuances of both the characters or situations The Guild still frequently makes you laugh at each.
