Blows Similar Stories Out of the Water
15 July 2019 | by weekendlitesSee all my reviews

I came across AFK on Amazon Prime over the weekend due to watching Journey Quest and having it pop up in the recommendations.

AFK takes the same basic Idea of telling a story that came from role playing games and although it is funny in places it is much darker without going full CW.

AFK Opens with Q (Mia Pistorius) An elf if the ears are any indication coming to groggy awareness on the ground with a couple other folks nearby. One of which immediately kills the other and turning there sites on Q Only to be killed in turn and suddenly everyone is running away.

Apparently gamers at their computers are suddenly in real life, inhabiting flesh and blood versions of their in game avatars in some version of World of Warcraft. And just as quickly these people with nothing to stop them start acting like people, being as shitty to each other as possible for the most part..

Q who is a pretty high ranked player immediately sizes up the situation and runs to the forest to avoid all the murderous other players. She gathers around her a band of supporting players including a Wizard (IRL a 15 YO gamer) Hot young Warrior woman in improbable bikini chain mail (IRL some bro who is a low level newb who became a woman for kicks), A self absorbed Rogue and a Gnome (Cosplaying 24 YO woman). They manage to survive the night in the forest and spend the rest of the series trying to figure out how to return to the real world.

I am trying to avoid spoilers here so I won't go too much more into story. Suffice it to say we have a clever antagonist who is building up his own army and the world itself appears to be in the process of the game rebooting as other aspects of online role playing fantasy games come back on line. magic, Non Player Characters and Quests for example.

What I found most compelling was the high production values, the quality of all the performances, and the writing.

My only negative is that these are produced as Web series and as such paced to run 10 minutes or so per episode. Which works to gain attention but I would think that something of this quality would garner enough attention to get the kind of funding from Amazon to create 30 minute episodes.

EDIT: Fixed some grammatical and spelling errors
