Introduction to The Guild (or why I have a serious girl-crush on Felicia Day)
I first discovered The Guild about six months ago. I was listening to an episode of Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist podcast and his guest was Felicia Day. They talked about The Guild which in turn pushed me to investigate it. I went through all three seasons in less than a day.
For those who have never watched the show, it follows the lives of six members of a MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role playing game for non-gamers) Guild who spend hours a day playing together.
Most people would wonder why that’s interesting, and I was a bit skeptical before I started watching it. But then she appeared. A beautiful red-haired goddess. I am, of course, talking about Felicia Day. IMDB is one of my best friends. It tells me just where I might have seen an actor or actress before so I immediately searched Ms. Day. The lightbulb came on when I saw that she had starred as Penny in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog which had also featured Nathan Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris. She’s been in many other popular shows such as Dollhouse and an upcoming episode of Eureka.
The Guild is funny, sometimes sad, and full of believable characters who are very easy to fall in love with. From Zaboo’s obvious obsession to Vork’s OCD, the ups and downs they face together are so much fun to watch.
Plus, Season 4 has Wil Wheaton in it…that means it must be good.
