While I’m pleased to be showing the first, surprisingly good-looking trailer for Bioware and Felicia Day’s Dragon Age: Redemption web series, you know what I’m really excited about? The chance for more people to be totally enraged with how Day isn’t a supermodel and is a talentless hack. You know, I’m not going to say that Day is the second coming of Helen Mirren or anything, but she does all right for herself. You may not enjoy The Guild (I haven’t seen it) or Dr. Horrible (I actually don’t) but at the very least, I don’t know how you can watch the Legend of Neil where she’s an insane fairy-whore and not believe at the very least she has some considerable comedic chops.
As for her nerdery, I can’t for the life of me understand why Felicia Day gets as much grief as Olivia Munn. Felicia Day made a long-running web series about World of Warcraft players in real life which was popular enough that it was actually picked up by Microsoft. Olivia Munn’s claim to nerd fame is eating a hot dog on G4 with her hands tied behind her back. I feel pretty confident in saying Day is the truer nerd.
