This show is what happens when you let people write, act and direct about something they love. It's all fun factor and none of the commercialized compromise. A show for gamers by gamers, that really puts you in touch with your inner child.

So we have Brian D who is the main star of the show, and as it turns out as he's playing just another run in a mil game and goes AFK the top gamer in the world gets on and demolishes his team. As he comes back he doesn't realize who he's playing against and sees a grenade on his head which he cleverly kicks back at the gamer and detonates winning his team the match, and humiliating Law(the top gamer). The show then goes on through a series of things that happen as Brian D gets invite into VGHS the school where you learn about every aspect of gaming, and without spoiling too much it just gets crazy from there. Bottom line this is exactly the kind of show that needed to be made, to prove once and for all it's not about name brands and regurgitated actors. It's about passion and commitment to making series about doing what you love, and let's face it every gamer at one point or another thought about what it would be like to destroy the worlds best on national TV. 10/10 please don't change a thing and keep it coming!
