Beyond its faux Los Angeles murder playground, swiping satirical humour, and supercharged bank heists, Grand Theft Auto 5 and its Online counterpart play host to a thriving performance culture. Courtesy of the Rockstar Editor—introduced in concert with last year’s PC release—players in their droves have since crafted reams of dilettante television shows, documentaries and films—some which have been watched by hundreds, thousands and, on occasion, millions of viewers.
One particular community which has evolved alongside the series is the GTA stunt scene. Reaching back as far as 2001’s first three dimensional instalment, Grand Theft Auto III, this group of adventuring thrill-seekers came into its own in the following year’s GTA: Vice City. In the days pre-social media, forums and file sharing sites served as the easiest means to swap notes on the best stunting locations, and to distribute footage of the most prolific daredevils. By the time San Andreas arrived in 2004, the scene had established itself as a flourishing subculture, which has reached fever pitch via the latest instalment in the advent of social media, not least YouTube.

The plot follows the disappearance of a young boy, and a telekinetic girl who helps his friends in their search, while the boy’s older brother, his mother, and the town police chief start their own investigations. The show is set in the 1980s in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana.
Season 2 will hopefully be coming out in July 2017, fingers crosses. I have loved the first series and cannot wait to see the second, cannot wait for the couch-athon. Here I come. I may sound stupid or even nuts, but this TV Series is something not to miss. So what are you waiting for? Go and catch up…
On an Emmys night dominated by HBO and FX, one Netflix series still showed up big, even without winning any awards.
