Felecia Day has become queen among the geek culture with appearances in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Supernatural and conventions around the world, but it’s her original web series The Guild that she created and wrote, that cemented her status. The series ran from 2007 to 2013 for six seasons and garnered millions of views and received numerous awards. Now thanks to Cinedigm all 70 episodes are coming to DVD in a megaset.
If you have never seen the series it follows a band of online video game players known as The Knights of Good, who are addicted to their MMORPG. The Knights include Codex, who was recently dumped by both her boyfriend and therapist, and is completely thrown when her Guild member Zaboo shows up on her doorstep. This sets off a chain reaction that brings all the Guildies together offline for the first time. They include Clara, whose gaming comes before the needs of her husband and kids; Tink, the secretive college student who keeps people at arms’ length with lethal barbs both on and offline; Bladezz, a self-proclaimed ladies’ man who’s barely out of puberty; and the hilariously intractable and infamously frugal Guild Leader Vork. While this series is most likely way more entertaining to gamers with it obviously geared towards them it still manages to entertain. It is a pretty low budget production which is to be expected but thanks to some clever writing and unique content it manages to entertain on numerous levels. Each of the characters are strange and quirky adding the much needed variety this series needed to make it work.
This popular series was made even better with numerous special guest stars including Wil Wheaton, Clare Grant, Doug Jones, Stan Lee, Nathan Fillion and more. This awesome set not only includes all six seasons, but also music videos, interviews, featurettes, audition footage, commentaries, and more. Any fans of Day or The Guild will surely want to add this groundbreaking series to their collection.
