I like to call myself a nerd but I guess I can’t really say that I’m that big of a nerd because I waited so long to watch The Guild. If I had a nerd membership card I’d probably be asked to surrender it. Well, I just watched the entire series so maybe if I had one it could get reinstated. Oh whew, that makes me feel so much better. Having been reinstated and all. Wait… did that just happen?
I’ve heard of The Guild and I’ve wanted to watch for such a long time but the thing is, I really don’t like watching tv shows on my computer. I mean, the sound issues alone are enough for me to shy away from it not to mention that I’d have to sit still, I’m kind of a spaz. But I really enjoyed watching it regardless.
How I actually started watching it is a funny story. Thinking of the Roku player I decided that since my Chromebook could plug in to my TV I would use that as my Roku player. The Chrome store has tv apps so I thought I would browse the Google Chrome store looking for some tv apps to install and found Clicker.tv. I installed it then signed in and guess what was in my queue? The guild! So that is what made me decide to watch it.
I started watching it but it wasn’t loading properly. That first episode had a link to watch it somewhere else. Bing and Blip.tv so I watched the first episode on Bing. But then I had to go back to Clicker to choose the next video and I thought there had to be a better way so I wouldn’t have to click anything, just sit back and watch it load the next episode automatically. So I chose Blip to watch it. I only watched the first 2 seasons through that. I decided to check Hulu and there it was so I watched the 3rd and 4th season there.
I think it was much better on Hulu though but that’s just me. All I had to do was add those 2 seasons to my queue and just play it from there and it played one episode after the next. Then again Blip had more extras which I enjoyed watching. Hulu doesn’t have those extras so I’ll have to go back to Blip to watch the season 3 and 4 extras.
Last night I watched the first half of the 3rd season in the kitchen while making dinner then this morning watched the 2nd half and all of season 4.
Well, now if anyone asks I can say that not only did I watch it but after 2 days I am addicted. So good for me… I think.
I can’t wait for the next season, and I know there is going to be one because I saw Felicia Day talking about it on Attack of the Show. They were at a set which I did not see in any of the 4 seasons that I watched. So I know there is a future of the show. I can’t wait to see it. I will definitely add that to my tv page lol.
Update: Once again I failed to do my research until after I hit the publish button but I went to the official guild website and found that not only do they have extras but they also have the first episode of season 5 available. So… watch the guild on their official website.
Update: Felicia Day is on Attack of the Show today, August, 1 2011 talking about her new web series called Dragon Age of Redemption. I believe that is a new series where she is in the set that I referred to and has nothing to do with The Guild. I seem to recall her wearing elf ears in that scene which she wears in this new web series.
