(One episode watched):|
Amusing, fun--will it pan out? Those, basically, were the only notes I took while watching episode one of Gamers. A strange yet intriguing dream-come-true situation is set up: the hottest girl in school comes to you, an insignificant person, and asks you to join a club that she is forming. Things don't quite go as you had hoped, however, as you find that there will be a number of other members, and each has a strange quirk--like the guy who solves puzzles because he's afflicted by amnesia. It's too soon to say what will become of this; will a serious and intriguing plot come together, or will the series as a whole be little more than the so-so jokes we have seen so far? Will the subject of how much video gaming is enough, and whether it is a healthy pursuit, ever come up? I doubt it. Like a number of shows this season, episode one of Gamers leaves me feeling that this show is worth watching more of, but I doubt if it will ever be brilliant.
