Coming up on TV Tropes: We discuss one of Bravo's few shows that isn't an American import or about sex, Ziva David reveals her tips for dealing with pervy workmates, Teal'c shows us sword fighting and Jar Jar Binks gets a Star Destroyer dropped on him. But first!

Playr (spelling is correct) is a British video games review and news show shown on the UK cable network Bravo on a weekly basis since May 2008, replacing Gamer.TV. It also has a couple of Spin-Off shows, equally replacing similar spinoffs to Gamer.TV.

Basically, it's a load of game footage and interview clips, with a voice over usually done by Rufus Hound, a team captain on Argumental. There's some original CGI link footage (the title sequence) and a section called "You", which is stuff that the watching community have sent in.

After embarking on a world tour of Bravo's schedules in May 2009 and a subsequent dropping, the channel moved to Film24 in September. To a much better timeslot.
