I considered myself a Geek in HS. Loved Sci-fi fantasy books, TV shows, Star Trek, DnD, Freaky hair, Drama club, chior, barbershop quartets, and acne. Yup. Me. Geek to a T.
If this show was back in my day... I think I could have won!
With the success of "Big Bang Theory", Geek is the new cool!!
Are you freakin' serious? NOW they're cool?!
Revenge of the Nerds' Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong will host, because they need the paychecks. Presumably there will be no lessons in Darth Vader-mask sexual deception.
One nerdy thing I will say about it is that if they were trying to duplicate the aesthetic of Nickelodeon game shows from our childhood like Double Dare, the mission may be accomplished. Aside from that, it looks like reinforcement of the worst cosplay stereotypes you can imagine.
Also George Takei's in it. Which means this show's going to be all over Facebook, and any contestant who praises Shatner will probably be punished.
