Based on a screener of the first The Nerdist specials on the Space Channel which airs August 6th at 11pm. I am pleased to report my nerd quotient is on the low side. I got but a few of the references in the show. The Nerdist at Comic Con will be followed by Tribute to Nerd Girls August 15th 9 p.m., Tribute to Time Travel August 22nd at 9 p.m. (or is it????) and Tribute to Toys and Games on the 29th.
The Nerdist belongs on the Space Channel. The Comic Con special features a visit by John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness of Doctor Who and Torchwood) who reveals his special Comic Con underwear.
The episode also has news about The Hobbit movie, Pacific Rim, the Man of Steel movie, and the Ant Man movie. There are also short reports from the Comic Con floor to give some local color to this episode.
If you are in any way interested in SF and fantasy, this show is a must. It is also very fun to watch.
