jPod

In other news, I’ve been watching and judging a TV show called jPod on CBC. It’s also named after a Douglas Coupland book I read two years ago, called JPod. The book is good too. The show is – get this – about a bunch of game developers! It involves swinger parties, middle aged housewives with marijuana grow-ops, gay innuendo with Chinese mafia kingpins, and online trysts with twin Wal-Mart greeters. The first episode or two are a bit rough, but it really picks up after that. Seriously, guys, I love this show. It’s fresh, it’s quirky, it’s relevant, and it’s hilarious. Do whatever you need to do to watch it. There’s no reason this show shouldn’t be a huge in-joke in the games industry.
