But the integration can go deeper as well. The show might introduce a new storyline involving a mysterious plague that is afflicting the entire continent, Beliaeff said. Players in the game could then work toward finding a cure. If the cure is found, the particular player that dredged it up could be mentioned on the show, or even become a walk-on character in a future season, events Beliaeff compared to "winning the lottery."

^^ From the article...I can see it now;

"Thanks to Fagbomb120541 and XxC00li0xX for aiding in the facilitation of creating this cure to save so many lives!"

I think I'd watch the show just to witness this...

What I don't get is how anything in the MMO is supposed to change the TV episodes.. aren't they usually shot in one go? I guess it'd be a neat concept as a "extra story" that runs besides the TV episodes. But I would be really impressed if that is actually interactive story telling in any sense. Because that'd be fairly unique.

imo, the only way this is ever gonna work is if they actually shoot both(or all) variation possibilities of a MMO to TV plot line and then just use the one that fits.. But do they have that much money to throw away?

The only trouble I see is that most episodes are shot long before they actually air. That gap will have to be closer if they really want the show to touch on happenings in the game world.

I haven't read up on this, but it seems like they would release the changes to the game world when the corresponding episode actually airs?

This show/game thing will fail so bad. I'd love for them to do something awesome, but you just know they are going to cheese the hell out of it. The "interactivity" is all pre-planned. They want you to think what players do will matter, but you can tell they've already scripted it out.

No doubt a lot of it is scripted, but I think they leave some wildcards in to keep the gimmick going. And it's really a pretty cool gimmick. Most shows tend to have a "b" plot in the series/episodes, and that's a perfect target for this sort of integration.
