Meet Coty Galloway: The Coolest Cat in Final Space

Fans of sci-fi and animation are in for a treat when TBS series Final Space launches on VRV this week. The series, created by and starring “Tennessee wonder child” Olan Rogers, is a mix of comedy, drama, and action in space. To get viewers warmed up, I had a chat with Coty Galloway, the voice of Avocato and a long-time friend and collaborator of Rogers’s.

HarmonQuest

Announcing Harmonquest Season 3 on VRV

Do you like roleplaying games? Of course you do! They’re excuses for friends to get together and be doofuses while slaying imaginary dragons. Now, what if your friends were all famous funny people? And what if you weren’t playing at all, but sitting back and watching them do it instead? Then you’d have Harmonquest, a show where Dan Harmon, Spencer Crittenden, Erin McGathy, and Jeff B. Davis play fantasy RPG Pathfinder for your amusement and edification.

Four Nickelodeon Game Show Challenges I Would Totally Have Aced

Editor’s Note: NickSplat is now available on VRV! It includes Nickelodeon content from the 1990’s and beyond, including “AAAHH!!! Real Monsters,” “Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “CatDog,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “Doug,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “The Angry Beavers” and “The Wild Thornberrys,” among others. To celebrate, we’re sharing our childhood experiences with these shows and inviting you to rewatch these classics with us.

As an 80s and 90s kid with cable, I inevitably watched tons of Nickelodeon. In particular, I was a fiend for their game shows: Double Dare to start, and then the 90s onslaught of programs like Guts and Nick Arcade. And if there’s one thing I know about those shows, it’s that I could have done everything on them perfectly.

Yes I Am Afraid of the Dark, Thanks for Asking

Editor’s Note: NickSplat is now available on VRV! It includes Nickelodeon content from the 1990’s and beyond, including “AAAHH!!! Real Monsters,” “Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “CatDog,” “Clarissa Explains It All,” “Doug,” “Kenan & Kel,” “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “The Angry Beavers” and “The Wild Thornberrys,” among others. To celebrate, we’re sharing our childhood experiences with these shows and inviting you to rewatch these classics with us.

I was an anxious kid growing up. I worried about improbable scenarios, invisible threats, and even the fates of characters on TV. So when Are You Afraid of the Dark? came on each weekday evening with its spooky opening music, I usually scrambled to shut off the TV or switch to playing The Rocketeer on my Super Nintendo—it was the 90s, you were stuck with what was airing on TV and whatever garbage videogame you asked your parents to get for your birthday based on the cover art.

Candle Cove Is Coming to VRV to Mess You Straight the Heck Up

As fans of horror, we all have different tastes. Some of us want gory slasher action. Some of us want more quiet, psychological dread. And then there are those of us who want to be left staring at the screen, terrified and baffled and wondering what we just saw and if we’ll ever sleep again.

If, like me, you’re in that last category, then you might enjoy a trip to the childhood nightmare that is Candle Cove.

Even if you’re unfamiliar with the series — and its parent show, anthology series Channel Zero — if you’ve been online long enough you’ve probably heard the title. The concept started as a short creepypasta by writer Kris Straub, and blossomed into a world of wiki entries, fanfic, and fanart. The television series marks the culmination of the fan fascination with it, as well as your first chance to watch a show that (according to its own lore) doesn’t even exist.

Gary and His Demons: A Hellishly Funny Take on Office Drudgery Comes to VRV

Fresh from the curse-ridden tar pits of Mondo Media comes a new VRV Exclusive series! The first episode of the darkly comedic Gary and His Demons released on Mondo’s channel here on VRV this past Sunday, and it’s a remarkably strong start for the series. The jokes all land perfectly, but what’s truly great about this first episode is the frankly tragic, extremely human drama underlying Gary’s absurd situation. Let’s take a look at what makes this show tick!

Your Weekly Guide to VRV – 4/13/18

For the past few weeks, you’ve been hearing strange noises out in the corn field near your house. A strange crinkling, almost like wind tangling through the corn stalks but more… organized. At first you couldn’t find anything amiss, but one day you find that many of the stalks of corn have been broken and lay limp against the ground. Day after day, you wake to more and more stalks breaking. There’s something inside telling you that there’s something intentional about this, like there’s a secret message if only you could see the entire field from above… Little did you know, miles away in the sky, someone piloting a small crop dusting plane could see just that. The bent husks finally revealed their message to the bewildered pilot: “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Your Weekly Guide to VRV 3/26/18 – 4/1/18

After a long, arduous day at the office and a particularly hellish commute, you finally make it home to your apartment. All week, you’ve been thinking about an old video game you used to play, and tonight is the night you finally have time to break out your old game system and relive a bit of your childhood. After a bit of setup, and with pizza in hand, you’re all ready to go. You power on your TV, blow dust out of the cartridge, and turn the system on. For the first few levels, it’s exactly as you remember it. The sword slashes feel just as satisfying as you remember them and you even remember where a few hidden items are located. But, as you progress through the game, you start to notice that things are a bit peculiar. It’s just small glitches at first–a bit of garbled dialog text or a misplaced graphics sprite. But soon the glitches get worse. Characters appear with no eyes, the leaves of trees render as red instead of green, and areas begin to shift and change when you revisit them. You become increasingly frustrated, but continue to play, feeling almost strangely compelled to continue. The graphical glitches take a more and more macabre turn until trees look as if they are made of skin, ghastly faces appear in every window, and all of the water appears rust colored. Suddenly your TV goes black, and a line of text appears: “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Stargate Origins

Your Weekly Guide to VRV 3/19/18 – 3/25/18

The old wizard knew something big was brewing. For the past few weeks, every morning he had felt a dull ache in his bones, an ache, he knew, that signified some future calamity. He made his way up the winding castle stairway to his study housed in a rickety old turret. He had frequented the study even more than usual in his attempts to make sense of the ominous signs he had noticed. Poring over stacks of dusty tomes, he finally found the answer he had been looking for. Deep in the pages of a long forgotten book of prophecies, he found it, the words he had needed all along, the answer to his world’s salvation scrawled in ornate inkwork: “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Your Weekly Guide to VRV 3/12 – 3/18

You walk to school using your normal route. Making your way down the neighborhood roads, you notice a stone well in the space separating two houses. Was that always there? You approach it, but suddenly stumble over a rock. You tumble into the well. You brace for impact with the ground… but it never comes. You fall and fall for what seems like an hour until, at last, you somehow find yourself outside again. But everything is… different. The architecture, the roads, the clothes people wear–all of it is different! Dazed, you stare around you and happen to spot a hooded figure. It approaches and hands you a scroll. Tentatively, you unravel it and read the words: “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Your Weekly Guide to VRV: 3/5 – 3/11

It’s a work day and you have just finished your coffee when you get a call on your cell phone. You scan the phone number but don’t recognize it and end the call. A few hours later, after lunch, you check your email. There is a new message labeled “iMpOrTaNt.” You figure it’s spam, but as you’re about to delete it you get a call from the mysterious number again. You end the call and glance at your inbox and see five more emails each with the same subject line as the one before. Your heart rate quickens. You leave for home, the entire commute your phone rings. You turn it off. It still rings. You get to your apartment and check your mail. There is a letter labeled “iMpOrTaNt.” Hands shaking, you open the envelope and find a sheet of paper labeled “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”
