Oh, trashy reality TV shows. You're so formulaic, and so awful, and yet there's something about you that makes it difficult to look away. Like a car wreck, really. (And sure, sometimes you're genuinely entertaining.)

Here is a Skyrim machinima by Nerdist that takes a look at what happens when a group of strangers get together, stop being polite, and start being re- oh, you know how this goes.


The modern-day voices/inflections/accents are jarring, but in a good way. It's hilarious to watch all the different Skyrim races act like vapid airheads or meatheads—particularly The Nooch, who gets REALLY EXCITED at everything. In that football playing jock sort of way.

Also, do you see that? It's a freaking pool in the middle of the house! A pool! And that other guy killed a dragon with a rock once. Are you impressed? ...hah.
