Watch this Now: The Guild

The Guild is a youtube series, of which seasons 1-4 are now on Hulu, which is how I found out about it. It's about extreme gaming culture, which is something I am not familiar with, but I've read a little bit about it in relation to gender (i09 sometimes has articles about it and Feminist Frequency is also all about it).

The cast is great, first of all, it's a gaming show whose main character is a girl, there are male and female characters and they're not all white (omg right?), and it's really funny! AND it's written and created by Felicia Day who stars as Cyd! Day also played a slayer on Buffy, which is why she might look familiar to you nerds (me nerds). And it's all in that delightfully short but dangerously addicting youtube length, with each episode lasting 2-10 minutes. I mean... come on. Get into it.

Here's episode 4, where the Guild meets in person for the first time.

Also Felicia Day is awesome and so legit. She has a weekly vlog on her other channel and you should check it out if you like the internet and/or gaming and/or Felicia Day bein' hilurry-us.
