The show has had one season, and another has been announced to be in production. The first episode was released on 25 October 2018, and the last episode was released on 3 November 2018.

Synopsis

Season 1

The story follows the Herd household. Tom Herd, the child of Samatha Herd, has a heavy RuneScape addiction. Samatha walks into Tom's room and tells him she lost her job from the hospital. After comforting Tom, she has to sort things out with the bank, since she is three months behind payment. She notes that Tom spends thousands of dollars a week on RuneScape, and that she tried to stop Tom but Tom reacted violently and hit her. The bank agrees to give her two more months to pay. It is later revealed that Tom was been forced to spend thousands of dollars on RuneScape against his will just to buy rare items for a bully named "xXRuneScapeMaster69AdminXx" (real name Brad) who has been threatening to unfriend Tom in-game in order for Tom to lose all of his popularity. A modern stereotypical Indian scammer hacks into Brad's account and takes all of his items. It is later revealed that the Indian does not want to be a scammer, and wants to be a doctor instead, and later unsuccessfully tries to retaliate against his boss. Brad blames Tom for taking all his items, since Tom has the password to his account. Brad confronts Tom and ends up chasing him after Tom tries to run. Tom runs into a dead end, and accidentally pushes Brad into a wall; knocking him unconscious. Tom calls an ambulance, and takes him to the hospital. The next day, Samatha has gotten a new job as a children's party entertainer, but before she could get to her first job, the hospital calls her asking her to come to the hospital. The hospital also calls Brad's dad. Meanwhile the Indian manages to escape the scamming complex called Scamco. Tom ends up having to pay for Brad's medical bills, and Samatha gets fired from her new job. Tom eventually runs away after not being able to afford paying for the bills. Samatha answers the door of her house after an Asian food deliverer accidentally went to the wrong house. Samatha says racist slurs to the Asian, and the Asian kills her with a katana.
