I wish all my "there's nothing good on TV" moments ended with finding a new and amazing TV show to watch, instead of my usual giving up and watching another Simpsons episode that you've seen a hundred times over.
The show centers each episode on Ethan and his fellow game programmers (who all happen to have last names starting with the letter J) as they all work in their little office pods on their upcoming game, BoardX, which features a turtle named Dwight. (It was called Jeff in the book, but they changed it for the show.)
This show has so many geek/gamer references I almost wanted to start crying at how perfect it was. Each character could easily be the people I know from this site. I wish I had been watching this show from the beginning, but I guess I'll just have to wait for reruns to catch up on early episodes.
For all those non-Canadians who are reading this article right now and want a chance to see the show, can thankfully download full episodes on the CBC website.
The people who can tune in to CBC, can tune in Tuesdays at 9:00pm EST.
Please for the love of games, watch this show because I couldn't stand the thought of another good TV show getting canceled. I still haven't recovered from the evil cancellation of Carnivale. I want a closure for the storyline, damn it!!!
For a real good laugh, check out the fake website for Neotronic Arts and look at the careers section.
