“Video Game high School” is back and better than ever with the premiere of its second season. After raising over $800,000 on Kickstarter and spending nearly $1.4 million this season of VGHS should raise the bar from last year. One such example is that the video game scenes for season 2 were shot 48 frames per second like in “The Hobbit” while the real life scenes were shot in the normal 24 frames per second. Also, the second season will have longer episodes as the average episode length will be about 30 minutes for season 2 while the averages episode time for season one was 10 minutes. The first episode is a must watch for anybody that liked the first season or enjoys playing video games.
The season begins with The Law(Brian Firenzi) being found guilty of cheating and he and the entire varsity team has been banned from competing in the championships so it is up to Brian D (Josh Blaylock) and Jenny Matrix (Johanna Braddy) and the rest of the JV team to play in the varsity team’s place. Some side stories include the new team coach being Jenny Matrix’s mom as well as Ted Wong’s (Jimmy Wong) need to write a paper and Ki Swan’s (Ellary Porterfield) desire to actually do homework.
The episode worked really well and the different plot points helped to keep everything interesting. Some highlights include the courtroom scenes with The Law and any scene with Freddie Wong or Harley Morenstein together. Also the episode had some cool cameos from people such as Burnie Burns and Stan Lee.
The season so far is off to a strong start and new episodes will be out every Friday and the new season will have 6 episodes in total.
