The Angry Video Game Nerd is an adult web television series of comedic retrogaming video reviews created by and starring James Rolfe. The show’s format revolves around his commentary and review of older, but unsuccessful video games which are deemed to be of particularly low-quality, unfair difficulty or poor design.
The series began as a feature on YouTube and later became a program on ScrewAttack Entertainment before moving to GameTrailers exclusively. The show was renamed The Angry Video Game Nerd to prevent any trademark issues with Nintendo and due to the fact he started reviewing games from non-Nintendo consoles such as those made by Atari and Sega.
Rolfe’s character, “The Nerd” is a short-tempered and foul-mouthed video game fanatic. He derives comic appeal from excessive and inventive use of anger, profanity, and habitual consumption of alcohol while reviewing video games.
A feature-length film, Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, is expected to be released between 2013 and 2014.
Love My Way is a Logie Award winning and critically acclaimed Australian television drama series. It won the AFI award for Best Television Drama Series for each of its three seasons.
Love My Way was about a group of thirty-somethings dealing with the ups and downs of life. The series revolves around an extended family unit – Frankie Paige and Charlie Jackson are the separated parents of Lou, and Frankie also lives with Charlie’s brother, Tom. As the series began, Charlie’s new wife Julia is about to have their first child. Frankie’s mother, Di and Charlie’s mother Brenda and father Gerry also have a strong presence in the ongoing story, as does Julia’s ex-lover Howard, who enters into a relationship with Frankie.
Produced by John Edwards and Claudia Karvan, Love My Way starred Karvan, Sam Worthington, Dan Wyllie, Asher Keddie, Brendan Cowell, and Alex Cook. As the program was made for subscription television in Australia, it contained stronger material than most Australian programs: regular swearing, drug use and sexual references.
When the series was launched, much was made of the connection between Love My Way and The Secret Life of Us: both sharing a star, as well as significant creative talent. However, the series is not a continuation of Secret Life, although it does share some thematic concerns.
