Second Life featured in tonight's episode of The Office

When virtual worlds hit mainstream culture, they hit hard. First, it was a recent episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, featuring a fictional game called "Another YOUniverse" (we know, we know). Then, it was last night's CSI: New York, which had a criminal investigation taking part inside Second Life.

Now, it's NBC's The Office, featuring video games prominently in an episode for the second time as the annoying beet farmer / paper salesman Dwight K. Schrute explores Second Life amidst the other office hijinks.

The episode airs tonight at 9/8c on NBC. (Culture, PC, Second Life)

Shrute's Second Life.

a might douche.

I enjoy both versions, if that's your opinion, I'm glad you felt like sharing it. American humor is different than British humor. Deal with it, and respect other cultures.

great episode.

Another game getting the nod in mainstream?
