This is very cool!
Disney XD has really been pushing the videogame related programming over the last month or so. So far it’s been… not great, and I’m not just saying that because they’ve been replacing their world-class animated shows with this sstuff. I like some of the people involved in their other shows, and they have some moments, but they also have some ludicrously bad, tryhard-y overproduced segments.
(There’s one show in particular that has the delightful Trisha Hershburger in it. The hosts sit around a couch with pro players and Disney celebs and do various videogame challenges. At the end of one of the shows, two pro Guitar Hero players competed while the audience leapt around like they were watching the most exciting thing since the Michael Jordan vs Dominique Wilkins dunk contest. It was ridiculously awkward, and not in a funny way.)
(Also, the less said about Parker Plays, their let’s play show, the better. I understand that middle-aged men are not the target audience, but it’s insulting to the intelligence of their actual audience.)
Anyway, I’ve already got the series set on my DVR. Really excited!
