Trama e commenti: - - - - - «The Guild narra la storia di 6 membri di una gilda chiamata “I Cavalieri del Bene”, di un gioco di ruolo online (World of Warcraft), che decidono di incontrarsi nella vita reale! Tutto ha inizio quando a casa di Codey, la protagonista dalla serie, che è stata appena lasciata dalla sua psicologa, arriva Zaboo, un ragazzo oppresso dalla madre, con l’intenzione di regalarle un mazzo di fiori e dichiararle il suo amore. Da quì nascono una serie di simpatiche vicende che vedono coinvolti tutti i membri della gilda… Vork, il capogilda pelato, senza lavoro e molto tirchio; TinkerBalla, la cinesina appassionata di videogames; Clara, mamma di 3 figli che per giocare online non se ne occupa minimamente; e Bladezz un ragazzo che vive con i genitori. La creazione di The Guild si deve all’attrice Felicia Day (Codey nella serie) che dopo 2 anni di dipendenza da World of Warcraft decise di creare la sit-com e di renderla visibile gratuitamente sul web».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - - - «...Created and written by actress Felicia Day — who also plays the aforementioned Cyd, aka Codex — this award-winning series follows a group of World of Warcraft-style online gamers who suddenly find themselves forced to face real-world obstacles when Codex’s life takes a screwball-comedy turn for the worse. ... Day has indeed populated The Guild with an assortment of non-stereotype characters, ranging in age from their late-teens to middle-age, and each carrying their own neurotic behaviors and tendencies. Vork/Herman Holden (Jeff Lewis), for instance, is the eldest of the group and brings his own cheese slices to restaurants in order to not pay the price difference between a hamburger and a cheeseburger. (“I want to grow my money,” he says, “not spend it on cheese-gouging.”) Tinkerballa (Amy Okuda) appears to be in her early twenties and resists revealing any personal information about herself to the rest of the group, insisting that her real name is the same as her avatar and using the plot of Ugly Betty to explain how she earns a living. (“I like you guys the way you are,” she responds when Codex first raises meeting face-to-face. “Cartoon characters who let me feel a sense of achievement in an imaginary world.”) Clara (Robin Thorsen), meanwhile, really does use her given name as her online moniker. A mother of three, she is forgetful, a little bit clueless and often neglects her children in favor of gaming. (“My husband’s in pharmaceuticals,” she tells the group, “and I stay at home with the kids where I’m in pharmaceuticals, too.”) Zaboo/Sujan Balakrishnan Goldberg (Sandeep Parikh) is a college student who eventually serves as the catalyst for Codex’s life to spiral downward: mistaking his fellow female cohort’s online interaction for that of affection, he arrives at her doorstep with suitcase and laptop in hand, ready to “woo.” Bladezz/Simon (Vincent Caso), the youngest of the group, adds to the mayhem when he’s banned from the game for twenty-four hours, posts an inappropriate video depicting the Guild’s cartoon avatars naked and refuses to return the group’s “bank” that he has been entrusted to guard. ...».
