In 2004, with the aid of a borrowed palmcorder from the University of Toronto, Jarett Cale and Geoff Lapaire created one of the world's first Internet TV series: "Pure Pwnage", an episodic, television-length, fictional documentary about the greatest video game player on Earth, "Jeremy", seen through the lens of his film-school-student brother, "Kyle". What started as a hobby project intended for a few hundred fellow Command & Conquer addicts went on to collect hundreds of millions of views and help shape Internet gaming culture. BOOM HEADSHOT!!


I remember this show quite fondly, so a movie would be fantastic if they do it in the same humorous style

Yeah I really liked the web series, then they did a proper TV series (aired on ABC2 here I'm pretty sure I saw bits of it a couple times) but it wasn't as good from what I saw as the web series was.

I went and saw the Pure Pwnage guys when they came to melbourne years ago (was at the start of the second season of the web series so it was probably quite a few years ago). Pretty cool guys, I never saw the tv series though, didn't realise it was ever even screened over here, but if it wasn't as good as the web series then I don't think I'll bother. Especially since it sounds like this movie is ignoring anything that wasn't the web series anyway.

tv show kind of sucked... was a massive let down after the web series... you could tell some producer d*** had his fingers in it trying to make elements more appealing to average real life noobs
