The Guild 3.0: Anarchy in the RPG

A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.

That's the motto of Kilt Guy or Folks or whatever Wil Wheaton's character's name is. Anywho, he's the leader of the Axis of Anarchy, the group that has taken down the Knights of Good through lack of manners but plenty of attitude. That's basically what happened in the second episode of season three, "Anarchy". It's the first episode this season that will be available at XBox Live and MSN Video.
Not only that, you can now embed it anywhere...

Allowing this is a good idea because it's going to increase the number of hits into the hundreds of thousands. It did wonders for the "Date My Avatar" video. I'm only doing this for this episode to show how easy it can be.
It also goes back to Kilt Guy's motto. It's only only his credo for an obnoxious lifestyle, it's also the explanation of why The Guild has become a big hit in and out of the internet. Felicia Day and the Guild gang has created something most media and enteratinment "experts" have said couldn't possibly succeed, but it has...in a BIG way. The Guild is a rebellion in itself because it's a successful web comedy that's funnier than anything you'd see in the bigger screen in your living room. As Felicia told CNN while she was at DragonCon last weekend, this show has become "The Office for the geek set".

Besides, the way things are going, this show could be 23,779 time more compelling than the new Melrose Place can ever be. Take that, CW!

Oh, and good luck, Dr. Horrible on the Creative Arts Emmys Saturday. If that ballot stuffing plot by Fake Thomas Jefferson worked as well as he planned, you'll have one triumphant evening...aside from the one you'll have eight days later hosting the Primetime Emmys, of course.
