I am sure that many already know or have heard of Felicia Day (from The Guild and Dragon Age fame)…and might already know this, but just in case I wanted to feature on of my new Favs on YouTube- Geek and Sundry. It is a new…or fairly new rather… Independent Network Broadcasting Channel on YouTube, by Felicia Day and Company, produced by Executive Producers Felicia Day, Kim Evey, Sheri Bryant.
Geek and Sundry is filled with original shows and series that will entertain even the non-Geeks out there…if not give a heads up to standard Networks of Cable and TV that there are much better things to watch than their fodder, which actually is in tune with viewers or fans alike. See below for more details.
Premium YouTube channel Geek & Sundry features the best of indie geek culture and the internet’s foremost geek voices. Founded by the producers of the hit web series The Guild, Geek & Sundry offers a diverse lineup of shows that create a hub for fans of comedy, gaming, comics, music, and literature around the world. Through compelling content and its powerful social media presence, the channel cultivates a thriving community amongst its viewers, allowing them to immerse themselves in nerd culture and connect with each other both online and off. Spearheaded by prominent geek figureheads, Geek & Sundry features original content by Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible, Eureka), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory), Veronica Belmont & Tom Merritt (Sword & Laser), Paul & Storm (w00tstock), and Dark Horse Comics.
American comedy web series created and written by Felicia Day, who also stars as Cyd Sherman (aka Codex). It premiered on YouTube on July 27, 2007. The webisodes were later made available on the official Guild website, YouTube, and iTunes. The show revolves around the lives of a gamers’ online Guild- The Knights of Good, who play countless hours of a fantasy MMORPG game that is referred to only as “The Game”. The story focuses on Codex, the guild’s Priestess (Healer), who attempts to lead a normal life after one of her guild-mates, Warlock- Zaboo (Sandeep Parikh), shows up on her doorstep.
