Like Captain N: The Game Master if it weren't completely cornball by any standards. My Life as a Video Game is an awesome, well-produced series that I enjoy every moment of. Although the plot can get a bit predictable from time to time, it does so in a way that's humorous, well- written and, above all else, fun to watch. M.E.N.U. (Brent "brentalfloss" Black) does a great job as comic relief and the show's writing, acting and cinematography is top-notch. I'm always excited for a new episode and I can't wait to see where the show goes. This is a concept that has been done before, but never like this and never this well. My Life as a Video Game is definitely a series worth watching.
