Check out the official synopsis below:

I've been a gamer almost all my life. I had an Atari 2600 joystick in my hand from the time I learn to sit up, and I've burned through every gaming platform since. Yes, dear internet - my name is Erin, and I'm a nerd.

And like all nerds, I've dreamed that skills I've acquired blasting baddies, head-shotting noobs, and dominating pixels would some day be humanity's only hope for survival...and then I wake up and go back to filling out TPS reports like the corporate monkey I am.

MTV can do no wrong in my eyes. Alright they can do a bunch of wrong but their new online web series "Savage County" actually looks pretty good. And I'm not just saying that because I'm trying to get on next seasons "Real World". Although I would be awesome for the house.

This horror/comedy web series Joe blogged about a month ago continues to turn out some pretty funny episodes. The series is by writer Jamie Nash and "Blair Witch" co-creator Eduardo Sanchez. These are definitely high quality for a web series, and the scripts mix in slapstick with subtler material. Go have a look!

Here's Episode 4:

Web series are all the rage on the intertubes these days and more and more the quality of them is getting better. Are they going to kill cable TV? Probably not but seeing a series like “The Captive” getting picked up by The Sundance Channel is pretty impressive. On top of that it also features Michael Gladis of “Mad Men”. Not too shabby!
