Man, I didn’t realize they did Mysterium on Tabletop! Just watched it, and is still entertaining.
Yeah, as G&S started kind of paywalling their content, I drifted away, and missed some of the last episodes. I definitely remember Star Trek Five Year Mission and Misspent Youth, but nothing between or past those in the list of season 4.
I would say there are a number games I own due to Tabletop. Some games featured I either already owned or would have bought anyway. And there are others that had I had the money and been given the opportunity, I would have bought at the time, but feel the time for them has passed.
Own (bold = due to TT)

I am still tempted by Flash Point now and then, but so far I have not picked it up. I already have a bunch of co-op games, many of which have not been or are rarely played, so feel I should work through those more before getting another.
For the show itself, I found it entertaining, though there was some major drama going on after season 2 or 3, as I guess there was someone who was supposed to check and verify the rules to the games and they weren’t. Fortune and Glory and Mice & Mystics were the two big ones that were played very incorrectly, from what I remember, and since they were in different seasons, I don’t remember when exactly the drama occurred. In any event, someone got fired, Wil called them out and got a bit jeered for that and later admitted as a showrunner he was also responsible and that it would get better.
But the whole thing just ruined the idea that these were all games that he played for his own enjoyment and were instead just advertising.
As for Wil himself, for the most part I found him entertaining, occasionally annoying. I had no particular attachment to him from his acting, but have found various videos over the years with him that make me feel he’s a decent human being, and he has had some great advice for people in regards to bullying and such. Knowing he had a pretty messed up childhood, it’s good that he was able to rise above that.
