There be casuals in our midst.

Gamers are a rambunctious bunch, at least the ones that don’t spend their waking hours yelling at women on Twitter. Dead Pixels is a celebrated British comedy that shines a light on these underdogs, and it’s finally coming stateside to The CW.

When it comes to gaming online, Megan Jeffries and her best chum Nicholas Kettle are practically inseparable, despite spending most of their time together across cyberspace playing the hit MMO RPG Scrolls. While holding off potential sieges and vying for online glory against a world of enemies, the two must also grapple with their personal lives online and off, that is, if anyone can pry them from their gaming stations.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream Dead Pixels.

Dead Pixels Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “The passions of Dead Pixels are funny, and the dialogue by creator Jon Brown (whose Loaded was also about gaming) is edgy and tart—the good lines are even more frequent than the bleeped-out vulgarities, which are easy enough to figure out. Given all the censoring, it seems an odd choice for The CW, but a very welcome one.” –John Anderson, The Wall Street Journal
