Let me pitch it to you:
Matt Burkett is Apollo Z. Hack. Hack is not just a web based movie reviewer, for he is destined to be the either the savior of the Reviewaverse
, or the destroyer. He periodically releases reviews of movies that he feels are under appreciated, but his biggest claim to internet fame is The Reviewaverse Saga - a seven part epic about the resurgence of an ancient Nerd civilization, a coming Nerdpocalypse, and references to Battlestar Galactica
and the Kamen Rider
series. The Reviewaverse itself is home to all internet reviewers, including the people at That Guy with the Glasses
, the Angry Video Game Nerd
, etc. And in Burkett's hands, the act of reviewing becomes something epic and meaningful.
Reviews with an overarching plot isn't new - Linkara
did it before - but The Reviewaverse Saga is perhaps the first to focus more on the plot than the actual review. An episode of the saga will start off explaining the plot, then a character would mention a movie offhand, a review ensues, then the plot continues.

"So what do you think?"
