G4TV’s show Portal (it has nothing to do with Valve, GLaDOS, or cake) is part 2001: A Space Odyssey parody, part sketch comedy, part news, and part send-up of gaming culture. It aired for two seasons, reporting on online games as if they were real and developing its own ongoing (and silly) storyline, before being abruptly cancelled. It's still worth your time, even if there's no cake.
