Official discussion thread for The Filthy Frank Show.
What is Filthy Frank?
The Filthy Frank Show is a show started in 2011 that stars Frank (played by Joji Miller) as he lives in a post apocalyptic world full of beings called the Lyrca. Together him and his group of friends (consisting of many characters such as Pink Guy, Salamander Man, Ethan Klein (h3h3), Ian (iDubbbzTV), Max (maxmoefoe), Safari Guy, Dade, etc) venture the world in search of chromosomes. Chromosomes are a measure of power and time in this world and the Lyrca feed off of them. However the only way to obtain a high amount is by doing cancerous shit. As such Frank and his friends travel across the many realms in search of chromosomes for the all powerful god, Chin Chin.
The series is known for it's complex lore, attention to detail, expensive budget, cinematography, funny content, and memes. The series is right now about to begin its War Arc featuring the return of the real Filthy Frank. Back in June 2015, Frank was banished to Realm 0 by Chin Chin and was replaced with a impersonator (dubbed Fake Frank). Pink Guy began hunting for him in the War Prelude Arc as Frank began making enemies and friends with many gods including the Peace^Lords, the Gatekeeper, and more. The War Arc is the conclusion to this story where Real Frank, Fake Frank, Chin Chin, the Gatekeeper, the Peace^Lords, Pink Guy, Salamander Man, Safari Man, and more will all come to blows in a race to become god.
How do I begin the series?
If you want to get in quick you can watch the hour long lore film (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk8DWDbFbbc) or binge all of the content from Frank's three channels (DizastaMusic, TVFilthyFrank, and TooDamnFilthy) in order of release (you can find guides online).
The series is on IMDB's Top 250 TV shows and has an 10/10 rating with over 24,105 reviews. It's recommended for fans of complex lore, memes, and good storytelling.
Do I have to watch h3h3 productions, iDubbbzTV, maxmoefoe, pewdiepie, or any of the other channels involved in the multiverse?
No, most of the important videos are on Frank's channels and watching the others is not 100% needed. Think of them as side stories that you can watch but don't have to. The Filthy Frank Show has many YouTubers as major characters in the series like h3h3, iDubbbz, maxmoefoe, pewdiepie, KSI, jacksepticeye, jacksfilms, Anything4Views, Vsauce, Joey Salads, and more. Most are reoccurring characters with the exception of Ethan, Ian, Max, and Chad who all play major roles.
