I think this is more of a love/hate show depending on your interests. But if you are a gamer you may like it. The Guild is a very funny show, in a very nerdy kind of way. You will understand a lot more of the references if you play World of Warcraft. I know a lot of people that hate it though.
It's a mini series but they have seasons on Netflix. Each "season" is around an hour long, in 1 episode.
