"The Amazing Spiderman Trailer" is the third episode of video game and geek culture review web series, Game Station 2.0. It aired April 26, 2012 on Blip,[1][2] the third of four episodes. The episode, edited by Mike Stoklasa and Jay Bauman, consists of a satirical introduction and a discussion book-ended by comedic sketches. Whereas other episodes featured one-man reviews of video games scripted by Rich Evans,[3] this episode showcased a movie trailer discussion between Rich Evans and actress Liz Shipe[4] in a similar fashion to discussion-based movie review series, Half in the Bag.

The Game Station Overlords send an android to solicit Rich Evans's opinion on the new trailer for the 2012 Spider-Man reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man.

PlotEdit

In the introduction, Tara the Gamer Girl briefly explains the history of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Spider-Man film series, giving information about the reboot's new cast and creative team.

Meanwhile, Rich Evans meets Liz Android 221, a sex and data robot at the Game Station, who comes to obtain a review of The Amazing Spider-Man trailer on behalf of the Game Station Overlords. The two immediately hit it off, connecting over a shared love of Spider-Man. While flirting with Liz, Rich inadvertently learns that the atmosphere of the Game Station inhibits cellular decay, prolonging his life and dooming him to reviewing for thousands of years.

Summary and ReviewEdit

Rich and his new android friend Liz discuss the unnecessary new reboot of the Spiderman franchise.

IntroductionEdit

"The Amazing Spiderman Trailer" was the third of four episodes developed and produced for release on Machinima.com.[5][6][7] Although the partnership was dissolved on February 24, 2012, the pilot and remaining episodes were completed before the pilot episode's debut.[5][6]

"The Amazing Spiderman Trailer" aired April 26, 2012 on Blip.[1][2] The episode, along with Half in the Bag episode "Zaat!", were released during Mike Stoklasa's visit to Copenhagen for the CPHPIX film festival,[8] because they were not "time sensitive" and could be aired when needed.[9] As such, the episode focuses on The Amazing Spider-Man teaser and official trailers, which were released July 20, 2011[10] and February 4, 2012[11], respectively. Rich Evans later appeared on Half in the Bag as a Spider-Man expert and reviewed The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.[12][13] Actress Liz Shipe guest starred on Half in the Bag as a ghost hunter.[14]
