Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything
Gamer's Guide To Pretty Much Everything is a live-action comedy television series that premiered on Disney XD on July 22, 2015. It stars Cameron Boyce, known for his role as Luke Ross from Disney Channel's Jessie.
On January 5, 2017, series co-creator and executive producer Devin Bunje, and various members of the cast, announced on social media that the series had been canceled. Reruns continued through January 1, 2018.
Conor (Cameron Boyce), a 15-year-old video game phenom, is forced to attend high school for the first time after a thumb injury sidelines him from the glamorous pro gaming circuit. As a coping mechanism, he begins to visualize life as a video game. He is reunited with his three former gamer friends who he left behind for life on the pro circuit World Tour, and he quickly realizes that restoring his friendships is vital in his quest to “level up” to his former glory.
Similar to Seinfeld, The Amazing World of Gumball, and fellow Disney XD comedy series Wander Over Yonder, the episodes (with the exception of the pilot episode) start with the article "The".
Why It Won The World Gaming Pro Championship
- Good acting, especially from Cameron Boyce.
- Awesome video-game esque theme song.
- Decent special effects.
- Interesting plot with a group of friends playing in major video game tournaments while attending school.
- Likable characters, such as Conor, Wendell, Franklin, and Ashley.
- Lots of hilarious moments when the gamers try to evade school to play video games or when they try to play video games while in school.
- Some heartwarming moments, such as the relationship between Conor and Ashley.
- The setting of each location in the show looks great.
- The scenes where Conor uses gaming to get through his everyday routine in the promos is always entertaining.
- In other words, it's Disney XD's done right and well structured version of Nickelodeon's terrible Game Shakers.
- Sometimes, the product placement is a bit too blatent.
- Some of the acting can get cringey and unfunny at times.
- This is sadly the last It’s a Laugh Productions show that ended on Disney XD (Lab Rats, Mighty Med and their spin-off, Elite Force ended before this show did), as after that, Disney XD ended their partnership, and so It’s a Laugh Productions is now back to being solely on Disney Channel.
- This is the second to last It’s a Laugh Productions show on Disney XD.
