Good Game is a web television series, exclusive to YouTube Red, created by Dan Harmon, the creator of Community, and produced by Starburns Industries, the animation studio behind Harmon's animated series Rick and Morty. The show is a comedy that follows the lives of a group of gamers who are trying to make it as a professional esports team.

The main characters are Alex (Dan Avidan) and Ryland (Arin Hanson), two best friends who have been playing video games together since they were children. Alex is the team captain and a skilled player who takes the game seriously, while Ryland is more laid back and prefers to goof around. Together, they round up a team of misfits, including a Twitch streamer, a feminist gamer, and a young prodigy.

Good Game takes place in the fictitious competitive gaming world, where esports are taken just as seriously as traditional sports. The team is struggling to make it big, but they are determined to do whatever it takes, even if it means sacrificing their personal lives for their passion. The show touches on themes like friendship, competition, and the lengths people will go to achieve their dreams.

The acting in the show is superb, with Avidan, Hanson and Morrow having great chemistry together. Avidan and Hanson, known together as the comedy duo Ninja Sex Party, have great comedic timing and deliver the jokes with ease. Morrow gives an impressive performance as the team's coach, an experienced gamer who understands the industry and the challenges the team is facing.

The show's production values are also top-notch. The series features great animation sequences and gaming effects, making it visually immersive and appealing. The writing is witty and clever, with jokes that will make gamers and non-gamers alike laugh out loud. The show also touches on some serious topics like sexism, mental health, and the use of performance-enhancing drugs in esports.

Good Game has a great balance between comedy and drama, with some scenes leaving you on the edge of your seats. The show's writers do a great job of creating relatable characters, making it easy for viewers to connect with them emotionally. The show also brings in real-life esports professionals, adding authenticity to the series.

The show has been praised for its portrayal of the gaming community, with several critics citing it as one of the most realistic depictions of esports to date. The show's exploration of the gaming industry is an eye-opener, highlighting the harsh realities that esports players face.

Overall, Good Game is an entertaining and well-written series that has its heart in the right place.
