Microsoft Sam Reads Funny Windows Errors is the series that really kickstarted Ace’s popularity. Running since February 2014, Sam goes on (mis)adventures while reading error boxes that can serve as gags, fortunes, headlines, warnings, snarks, etc. Viewers can submit their own to be used in future episodes, which are known as error requests. Over time, the series's tone faded from dense and wacky with emphasis on comedy, to a dramedy with emphasis on plot and story and with matured characters.

Season 1

This season is what started it all, and had some of the biggest gaps in content standards and quality out of any season. The first several episodes retained much of the quality and styles of videos from the previous year, and then started to shift away more as of episode 8.

Main Plot

Only episodes 1-7 are still known today, until more episodes are reuploaded.

Season 2

Each episode may contain the same running gags as S1EP10 and Season 1 Finale. S2EP1 was released on October 23, 2014, S2EP2 on October 25. This was the only season with the shortest timeslots, with an episode released every 1 or 2 days. Only episode 3 is still up as of 2019 September 9.

Main Plot

Season 2 works a lot like Season 1. The wormhole returns after seven months since S1EP5, and a month since S1EP10 and then S2EP4 brought back the OS-switching scene.

Season 3

Season 3 started on December 6, 2014, ending the classical era at episode 4 after the closure of Ace's first account. After the series was brought back a year and a half later upon episode 5's release, the program used was changed to Blender, starting a brand new era of 3D-animated TTS content.

Main Plot

Season 4

This season ended the 3D era

Reception

Error requests were sent more often than expected since the beginning of Season 1 (with TheTick532 being the first TTS video creator and YouTube user to send an error request for the series, immediately before S1EP1.)


Goofs

In S2EP8, there was an oversight on the first error in that episode, where it was said to be from MalachiThornsburgTV's error request, even though it was actually from abc60altTTS's. It was later resolved.
