This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

And it's cancelled.

Well, I am dissapointed. Despite it's flaws, the show had some really great moments, and I was hoping for a second season.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Not a surprise. The production costs would demand very high ratings.

Nobody else watching? Despite my criticisms, the show does have it's moments.
Theres an older thread here discussing it when it first was announced and after a few episodes were out.
Personally for me it was just kinda "eh" overall with some interesting parts and some turn-off parts that combined with what looks like some CGI despite claims there isnt any CGI, just left it feeling a bit off or lacking.

There ARE some SJW moments in there, such as they ensure the female characters pretty much lead the show and make a special point they're mentally and physically superior to male characters.
There was hints of that in the original to.
