And a Gag Reel for episodes of 1-4 for Season 3:

So, yet another week without time to post a blog on something OTHER than the Guild, but we’re editing episode 9 now and the light is at the end of the tunnel for us, haha. CAN HAZ FREE TIME PLS?! This episode is one I REALLY like. When I first wrote the script for Season 3, the scene with Codex in the rival guild chat channel was the one scene that I wrote and pretty much never touched again. I had SO MUCH FUN writing these new characters knowing I was going to be as filthy as I could with it (kinda like what gamers talk like more than the REGULAR Guild anyway, ha).

I think all the characters really come across well. Thanks to Helen Geier my friend and casting agent who found Bruiser and Kwan and Nik, so funny. The new Anarchy actors did a FAB job working with the weirdness that is Guild webcam shooting: That is, acting in a room alone with me or a PA reading off-camera, not knowing REALLY how the other actor will actually say their lines. We shot them in their rooms in some instances WEEKS apart, and then the scene was cut together. That’s why we always get PLENTY of coverage for all lines in the webcam scenes, because you never know how the rhythm of the scene will cut together with the actors working in a vaccuum so to speak.

This episode also had one of the most challenging location and prop scenes with Vork at the drive through. Why I wrote a drive-through scene on this budget is beyond me, if I were a producer I’d kick my writer’s ass. Thank goodness Tyler found an affordable option for the drive-through board (which is hilarious if you look at it closely, the prices don’t make any sense at all). This was actually shot in the parking lot of a high school, you might notice Kenny our BTS person in the car behind Vork. He’s an extra in MANY scenes for season 2, it’s a fun easter egg, haha.

The name of the restaurant is so ridiculous not on purpose but because everything I’d come up with we’d do an internet search on and it existed so we were worried about legal repercussions! “Tastee Burger”, “Burger Mart”, etc etc etc we checked DOZENS. Finally we just used the most ridiculous name ever. I can’t help but laugh every time I heard “Mr Chick-N-Stuff Jr and Friends.” We also have a take of Vork saying “Lil’ Burger Man” which Sean Becker the director liked better, and was granted, HILARIOUS.

Last inside note, our webmaster Edgar and intern Ethan helped a LOT bringing to life finnsmulders.com as another Easter Egg for the show, check it out. The face on a stick of Bladezz in the episode is priceless, I wanted to get them made up and hand them out at Comicon, but the release was so far away we decided not to. Oh well! Hope you enjoy, and yes, that is Wil squealing like a Bat at that bug. In reality, I am shrieking louder than anyone and running a few blocks away, but I was behind the camera and not miced, HAHAHAHAHA.

  • Ken Todd

    Soooo good. Intense but still very funny.

  • Lilian

    You are so right, bladezz is priceless in the episode! I laughed so much at his picture lol

    BTW, where did you buy that air phone? It’s perfect to give to my BF as a birthday present, 😛

  • &e

    Vork is an amazing character and the rival guild is very fun to watch.

  • tonewaugh

    Loved the episode and the gag reel. Hope we get to see them unbleeped on DVD.

    “It’s like you guys are just sitting there staring at a wall or something.” Filmmaker’s joke? They are.

    Curious – the dirty mustache line – written before or after the Legend of Neil fairy’s song reference?

    The backrub outtake – can’t tell if the reaction (“Good to hear”) is from Cyd or Felicia.

    Insufficient resolution/screen size to read the fast food board menu. Oh well. Maybe put some stills of it as a DVD extra?

    Good luck with the ongoing editing. Hope the web comic is going well.

    And congratz on both Emmy appearances. (Did you know you have a near close-up in the audience during Tina Fey’s acceptance at the end of the Creative Emmy’s? You are looking off slightly to the right, while virtually everyone else is looking to the left, which is amusing of course. I presume you’re looking at a monitor rather than the stage…)

  • My face hurts from smiling. Hooray for Tuesdays!

  • Dani

    This was such a great episode!
    It’s was really cool to see the AoA chat!

    But I just can’t comment on anything else after watching that gag reel…
    And no, it wasn’t Wil’s squealing that made me LMAO, it was all of you guys.. literally racing the sun! That was PRICELESS.

  • Mr. Dwindle

    Finn Smulders website is hilarious! Nice detail.

  • Gabriel

    I really enjoy the episode. I love the original character but I believe that the new guild is a wonderful idea. Kinda spice up the story.
    These new season looks so nice with all the outside shots.

    Thanks for invest your time and effort in such a wonderful, funny show.

    P.S.: Congrats on the emmy ^^

  • Woo they just get better and better! So quotable as well, especially Vork. Really impressed with how the Guild has evolved from Season 1 to now.

    Gag real is HILARIOUS. I can never get enough of watching those!

  • Another great ep! I loved the pacing between all the webcams – it worked so well. You would never know that they were all recorded separately week apart (except for the fact that you just told us!).

    And I agree with Dani – the ‘chasing the sun’ scene in the gag reel is fantastic! It shows how difficult things can be and what a great team you have 🙂

  • len

    Without a doubt, I enjoyed this episode. Some of you might enjoy reading this:

    • len

      BTW: if you write a blog that takes the characters from the Knights of Good and the Axis of Anarchy and position them in the matrix described in that paper, it’s one way to spend a rainy day. Unless someone in the Axis is stupid, the KoG can never win.

      • len

        Unless of course, Wil’s character underestimates Clara. 🙂

  • OMG, please, please, PLEASE write a spin-off series about the Axis of Anarchy! Please?

    Kthxbye. 🙂

    (PS – I really love them.)

    tHE END!

    hOPE YOU LIKED IT! pLEASE RESPOND TO THIS POST!!! tHOUGH YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN’T CUZ THAT WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE MY ESTRANGING BEHAVIOR.

    • Concerned

      You sound really creepy and I hope you’re not for real.

      • Timmy the STALKER

        mY BEST FRIEND FELICIA DOESN’T THINK I’M CREEPY. *AGHAST*

      • Timmy the STALKER

        Seriously though, and for legal reasons and people’s peace of mind. I am just really bored. Sorry if I caused any trouble.

  • Timmy the STALKER

    i LOVE YOU, BUT WHY HAVEN’T YOU RESPONDED YET!!!?

  • Not a stalker

    Okay, so my conscience is seriously wracking me. First of all, sorry for blowing up this board. I’ve never felt like a troll before. I have reread what I wrote above and it is just absolutely retarded. I would delete it if I could (maybe an admin can?). I guess at the time I thought it was a funny idea that was pretty transparently fake, but in all actuality it is just plain stupid and as the one comment points out very creepy. Before things get blown up on here I’d like to apologize to everyone who frequents this board for compromising the trust usually displayed between internet users and the guild staff and I would also like to apologize to Ms. Day for my dumb behavior. Hopefully she didn’t already read it and get freaked out by it before my apology. I take responsibility for my stupidity. So I promise not to return to this website, as I’m sure that I won’t be welcome anyway. I will, however, continue to watch and support episodes of the guild. Thanks for all your hard work, and I hope I did not cause anyone any undue stress.

    • HEY TIMMY-NOT-A-STALKER I TOO LIKE WRITING IN ALL CAPS AND STALKING NON STALKER STALKERS. LETS BE FRIENDS. GOOD FRIENDS. DON’T WORRY I AM NOT AN ALLEGED PSYCO OR ANYTHING. FOREVER IS A LONG TIME.

      • Not a stalker

        rofl. someone who gets my deranged sense of humor. awesome.

        • Lilian

          Hey Timmy the Stalker, or the Not a Stalker, at least you got Felicia’s attention, lol.

          I wonder how many psedo-stalkers she will have now… hmm… If she ever come to Brazil ill think about stalking her, lol jk 😛

  • Markus

    Oooookaayyy. Moving on.

    I’ve already thanked Sean Becker in FB chat for his work in Series 3 but wanted to thank you for The Guild full stop. This show is just getting better and better. I cannot begin to realise how much work has gone into writing and promoting this show but blimey, it is really paying off.

    Season 3 has just been amazing. Ep4 and the gag reel has had me laughing so much this week! I was laughing from Codex’s opening vlog right up to the last scene with Bladezz and Dena. Immaculate comedy.

    The editing made for an amazing pace and the script and dialogue was just made of pure win. The locations are inspired and the casting choices keep showing themselves to be spot on.

    Special mention to Teal as Venom. She is going to give Tinkerballa a real run as alpha female biatch! (also loved how Teal kept in character as the bug went for Wil’s jugular).

    Cannot wait for this season to come out on DVD so I can watch it uncensored!

    Thank you so much Felicia. I look forward to tuesdays now!

  • No problem, don’t sweat it. Thx for the apology though, that WAS kinda weird 🙂

  • izzardgrl

    I love the Guild, and am anxiously awaiting each new episode. I just wanted to mention how excited I was today when I was watching my tivo-ed episode of General Hospital from yesterday. I was getting ready for work, and heard a voice that I thought I recognized from the tv. I turned around and squealed “VORK, that is VORK!”. I was so excited to see someone from the Guild on regular old tv. I know that you are all actors, and I should not be surprised to see one of you on tv. However, it made me all happy to see someone from my favorite web series on my favorite guilty pleasure, daytime soaps. Anyway, congratulations on all the accolades and great reviews that are coming your way, all of you.

  • Matt

    The Guild is now region locked on Xbox Marketplace? Still only 301 and 302 are available in Australia.

    • Nick

      I’m an Aussie as well and have the same Xbox issue, however people from Europe and even Canada have posted on The Guild forums about the exact same problem of getting episodes past 302.

      Need my HD fix of the show. 🙁 Until then i’ll continue watching it in tiny form like the beginning.

  • Henry

    Great show. Plan to buy both seasons to help support it. Keep up the good work.

  • So many things to love about this episode, the drive in scene was priceless.

    Looking forward to showing the Guild to everyone at GeekKon ( http://www.geekkon.net / shameless plug) again this year at the end of October, as a showcased MOVIE (thanks to Felicia pointing out it can be viewed as such on the DVD)! If any of your readers are in the Midwest, especially near Madison, WI, and they want a taste of the super geek experience without the crowds of Comicon / Dragoncon, they should check it out.

    In the mean time, let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. And Edgar: rocking site. You won the Internet, again. But, I thought the AoA made it? EDGAR IS IN THE AOA???

    Hugs to all from Chris and Jossy

  • Mike

    Anybody know if the gag reels are included on the DVDs?

  • Nick

    Yes, Gag Reels are on both season DVD’s and they are split into sections of episodes (1-4) (5-8) etc.

  • I’ll get to episode 4 after I finish Dr. Horrible, courtesy of Netflix. The singing commentary is marvelous. It must have been so much trouble to write and to perform a complete script and score for the singing commentary, but so worth it.

  • !!! great episode. clever people r cool. 🙂 enjoy the week.

  • Alex

    I love The Guild and Dr. Horrible!

    Sounds like the shoot was a lot of fun. I agree, you are crazy for writing a drive though scene but it was hilarious, so good job!

    Can’t wait for more episodes!

  • Vikingabroad

    Finnsmulders.com was a great touch:D Couldnt stop laughing at the pictures. Is it wrong that I find the eurotrash song kind of catchy??

    Loving the writing for the rival guild. I think that you should get some airtime on Showtime or HBO so that you can really go nuts.

  • Eric

    Felicia,

    Best episode ever! This is one of the few shows that can make me laugh out loud everytime! I mean every episode is just so well written. Keep up the good work girl!

  • Alex

    The Finn Smulders website was hilarious. I made the mistake of looking at it just now while sipping my morning tea at work and almost spat tea all over my monitor. Excellent work to the web devs on that one. I love supplemental media like that; it reminds me of Barney’s blog from How I Met Your Mother, which I also think is quite hilarious.

    Keep up the excellent work!

    • Vikingabroad

      Still think his video resume has got to be one of the best ones I have seen. NPH is great in that role, just as in Dr. Horrible……Guest appearance on the Guild?? 🙂

  • Haha, I play another MMO (FFXI), as well as WoW and I can’t stop showing my friends The Guild. It often reminds us of the “old school” days, especially S3 EP3 😀 haha, with the gangster Guild.

    Keep it rolling! The Guild da best =))
