Just popping in do do a quick pimp for a funny show I have recently been exposed to. I am trying to get back into a regular posting schedule but meatspace drama is still slapping me down… so it’s just quick mini pimps for now until I can kick the drama beast in the nards…. sorry flashback to Monster Squad….
Friend of mine in meatspace pointed me to a series that he helps out on with Music and other odds and ends the Gamer Chick Show.
It’s a great fun little comedy series, So far five episodes are up, and I understand episode six should be up in the near future. Season one is slated to be a total of eleven episodes and season two is planned for.
Episodes are very short ( four minutes and change to little over 8 per episode) you can catch up on everything on a slow connection in a couple hours, on a fast connection you’ve seen it all in under an hour (37ish minutes if you watch it straight).
For a completely homebrew production it’s put together well, it’s a lot of fun to watch, and you can tell they have a lot of fun working on it. After I watched the first couple episodes I realized that I actually knew and worked with another member of the crew in the past as well which was a pleasant surprise.
The only complaint I have is I would love more. Longer Episodes and more episodes. Given time I think this can blossom to be a lot better, and I think it’s sweet as it is.
It splits between the gamers and the characters played portrayed by the same actor as the player. With most of the episodes being “IRL” around the table and adventures in life of the main character – Gia. It plays on the stereotypes of gamers, but not in a condescending way. After all it’s a show about gaming and gamers done by gamers.
My friend Buddy (yes that is his real name) who does music for the show has a cameo in Episode 4 at about 3 minutes in.
Check it out – It’s a fun little show with a lot of potential, and I hope it can gain the followership it needs to truly achieve that potential.
I plan on pimping them again when I get fully back in the swing of things and I’ll definitely hit them up for 8 Qs if they want to play when I get back to that point.
