Hmm, I need to see this, but in my area it is showing on the Discovery Times Channel and not until the 19th of December. I can't wait.

i watched the first two so far. Its interesting but the way the video game clips they throw in sometimes make absolutly no sense to what they are talking about. Like they just wanted to show something flashy to keep someone's attention. Just weird how they do that.

Pretty interesting series so far. I thought they didn't dwell on the Playstation enough. At the end of episode 2 it sorta fell apart. Overall, a good little series, and Trip Hawkins made an appearance!

being a 5 part series i think they will jump around quite a bit like they did with part 2

the first one i thought was much better than the uncordinated 2nd part

another show to look for was Hollywood goes gaming on Starz, Trip makes an appearance in that also
here is one blog i found with his name mentioned
