Mom and Dad want their freeloading kids to get jobs, but nothing could compete with the ultimate gig for high school kids that they had in 1989. As a Game Counselor answering calls on the Power Line, you could bring hope to people with nothing to lose but 99 cents an hour: people who are really stuck in a video game. In his pre-Dad days, young Gilbert learns the ropes from fellow weirdos as the quirky Counselors field calls from the lovelorn, the overly immersed, and the bloodthirsty. Battling panic attacks on the phone is tougher than dodging barrels at first, but a talented coworker takes an interest in helping Gilbert...and maybe more. Okey-dokey, here we go!
