This Weeks favorite RPG video of the Week

The Dungeons and Dragon scenes from the last episode of Freaks and Geeks are some of the best representations of table top games on television. Gaming for many years has had a bad reputation. Many times getting it confused with larping, “You nerds dress up right?”  In the last 10 years role-playing games have a better media presence.  Another positive representation is  the dungeons and dragons episode of Community. In the episode  the characters do no dress up and they actually don’t try to represent the game world.  Leaving the setting to be created by the imagination of the viewer.

What are some of your favorite references to Rpg’s in popular culture?

    One of my favorite RPG references in pop culture is in the IT Crowd episode “Jen the Fredo.” Throughout the episode, one of the characters, (Moss) tries to get other characters on the show to play D&D with him; eventually, he succeeds.

    (and it only gets better from there)
