Six friends form a guild in a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. They meet up every evening and band together to fight hordes of villainous creatures. They combine their strength and knowledge and have fun defeating the monsters, taking the spoils of battle home with them. This is the premise of The Guild, a very funny online show that will appeal to fans of MMORPG's and even those who aren't. The gaming aspect of the show actually takes back seat to the characters themselves as we get to know and are entertained by them. The online game that they play is suspiciously similar to World of Warcraft, but is never identified as such. Check out the 10 episodes of the first season and look forward to the premiere of Season 2, which is being produced right now!
