...at least, that was the plan. It soon becomes evident that an epic prophecy is unfolding behind the scenes of the show, with Arthur dead in the center. Devious forces work against him to destroy the geekverse with the power of Hate, and only Arthur, destined to become the Geekvere's saviour, can stop them.

* InformedAbility: According to Ivan, Archon Nekros is one of the most dangerous enemies of the Geekverse out there. But Nekros himself has so far done very little conquering and a lot of whining and failing.

Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfWeirdness: The Reviewaverse (referred to as the Geekverse before Geekvision did lots of interconnecting cameos and crossovers with Channel Awesome reviewers). And this entire webseries shows off the weirdness of this universe whenever it can.
