Well if you ever watched the movies Back to the Future 1, 2, and 3 you would know a Delorean is a kick ass car. They stopped making them in the 80's because the company was seized. Mostly because the primary share holder was smuggling cocain in the tires of the cars.
I was blown away by the details...the stockings over the fireplace were the Guild avatar feet! I want to make those now. Actually I want to make all of it. I can totally print out a huge pic of Felicia and put it in a gilded frame, right? Or...would that be a bit much? :P I love that they used the Codex staff from geekycookies.com too. I want to order some and take a pic eating them in my Codex costume. :P The whole thing was just really fun, and I loved all the cameos by Guildies and other tv actors alike.
I was surprised by that large Felicia picture.. I took that photo while doing the Music video.. it's one of my all time favorites of her. Greg asked me for a picture of her.. never knew he was going to blow it up and hang it. :)
Love the Guild but this Christmas episode kinda left me with my eyebrow raised (sorry. (c) Felicia Day) But of course its just an opinion.
Well I really enjoyed watching seasons 1-3 and the specials so far...when i discovered THE GUILD by word of geek mouth, i thought it was a funny creative little show and immediately became a big fan. I really connected with The Guild because I am a big WOW gamer since 2004 and i am a end game content guild member. Some of the episodes I think connect with experiences people have had playing WOW in guilds.
I will be honest I plan to watch the first 2 Christmas specials on Christmas Eve...i think they are funny and will remind me to Log off and go to bed after raid ;) winkie.
I bought the Season 1+2 DVD and generally love it...cept you CUT OFF the first part of the Christmas SPECIAL with the creepy SANTA speaking.... sigh anyway....
*Fyre puts on critical evaluator's santa hat.*
I do have to say though...I think the SELL OUT Christmas episode is not that great.
Did I watch it..yes. Did I laugh...yes. Is it creative...yes.
But I think it lacks something that special something that made THE GUILD what it is...that thing that is The GUILD--ish.
I didnt feel this years Christmas Special was very "Christmasy" like the last 2 Christmas specials.
I also didnt feel it connected with gamers all that much. I can see where you were coming from...
but truthfully I think you guys had an awesome tradition...of sing a long chirstmas specials that were very christmasy. I felt like an idiot humming those songs at work cuz they were stuck in my head.
I really thought that it was a "GAG" Christmas special and then you would post a REAL Christmas sing a long episode later...but I sense that isnt the case.
If I didnt love ya Guildites I wouldnt be constructively critical---
I hope Felicia and crew read this and say "You know hes right....lets go make a Christmas Sing a long episod and keep the tradition alive!"
Crossing fingers. Ill be honest the SELL OUT thing came out of no where I wasnt sure if it was a joke or you were really offended by someones comments.
I would hope to see at least one cast member throw a quick comment in on this but probably wont happen :) I kinda would like to know what they think about having a yearly traditional sing a long type Christmas special..i think it added a unique touch and the topics in them were so close to real gaming life its funny as heck.
I am looking forward to a Season 4 ! And ill be right there supporting you!
