You don’t watch The Guild? Give me three paragraphs to sell you.
The Guild is arguably the best, and absolutely the most important web series. It tells the story of a small group of people who regularly play World of Warcraft together; hijinks ensue. It’s groundbreaking, hilarious, quirky and delightfully geeky.
Co-creator & star Felicia Day will without a doubt be remembered in mass communication history as the Lucille Ball of web video because she figured out how to make a web series work. In the process she built an acting career for herself when Hollywood refused to let her play anything but the “quiet friend” or “cat lady.”
Season 5 stated up last week, and you can find the first episode of the new season (alone with the previous four seasons) for free on WatchTheGuild.com. I recommend starting with Season 1 because it’s free, and the episodes are short. This isn’t a big commitment, you aren’t watching Lost. You can watch the whole thing in a night if you want. It’s quick, funny and has a lot of heart.
WatchTheGuild damn it!
