Episode Summary

Lara Croft: Lethal and Loaded
What do you get when you cross male gamers with a 34-23-35 female character? An international obsession! Meet Lara Croft (although most of you, I'm sure, are already very well-acquainted with her). She's smart. She's British. She's adventurous. She's tough. She's an archeologist. She's hot. She's a superstar. She's now in her own documentary on TechTV! With more than 26 million copies of her Tomb Raider games sold, she's the star of the most successful videogame ever. Created by Core Design, her popularity and appeal have surpassed her creator's expectations and has crossed over to the mainstream. She's the ultimate male fantasy. Her allure has been credited with the loss of a British soccer match and the delay of a Prodigy album release. She has appeared on more magazine covers than any supermodel and stars in U2's "Elevation" video. The pinnacle of Lara's success was realized when she came to life through Angelina Jolie in the 'Tomb Raider' movies. "Lara Croft: Lethal and Loaded" explores the creation of Lara, her history, her appeal, and the unexplainable and sometimes disturbing hold she has on the gamers who put the rest of their life on hold for her. Hey, if nothing else, it's an hour of Lara images (and yes, she is naked at one point).moreless
