You know after the opening shot and the old school game theme music that you’re in for a treat. Think “The Guild” mixed with a little “I.T. Crowd”. I think they’re onto something here. The acting is pretty good and the characters memorable and funny without trying too hard.
The premise, a group of gamers; Max- Mage/Supermarket Dude, Millie- GM/Librarian, Harmony- Necromancer/Unemployed and Sam- Warrior/Solicitor, need a fifth member for their table top gaming adventures. In this first episode we get a brief look at the personalities of these four and the hesitant acceptance & suspicion over their newest member, Sam. Which, after hearing of the demise of his fourth seat predecessors, isn’t so sure he wants to join anyway. After a small stand-off, discussion over finding a fifth and final member is put on the table. Well actually, it’s put on a supermarket billboard. And in all the funny, we see the vulnerability these four feel in opening up their circle to someone completely new. I think “Nights At The Round Table” web-series shows some promise and I look forward to seeing the future candidates that sit in that fifth seat.
I recommend you check this new web-series out. Who knows, maybe you’re that fifth gamer they’re looking for.
