I Really Wanted To, Felicia!

Someone told me about The Guild. You know, the internet gaming sit-com created by Felicia Day and much loved by lots of people including Joss Whedon. They told me I'd love it, that it was right up my alley. So I went online, hunted it down and watched it.

The good news, with episodes that are around 4 minutes long, is that you can watch all four seasons in about a 20 minutes. (OK, so I exaggerate - I can't be bothered doing the maths) The bad news is it's extremely average. Sorry Felicia, I really, really wanted to love this.  Not that I hated it - I just wouldn't be worried if I missed future episodes.

On the other hand, no one told me about Generation Kill, or Spaced. Both wonderful, clever and well-written.  I loved both of these. Spaced I borrowed from the library, simply because I liked the cover, and Generation Kill I bought on a whim, based on its connection to The Wire.

I need to do that more often - act on a whim. As Mia said, it's more fun to be a pirate than to be in the navy.
