How do you say goodbye to one of the most topical and twisty sci-fi series of the last few years? That’s the conundrum that fans of Continuum are facing as the show mounts its final season this fall. As a Canadian production, those of us in the Great White North get the first look at new episodes when the season begins, and so it goes for this six-episode final season of Continuum. The first episode is online and available to Canadian viewers, but the second episode was shown tonight at Fan Expo. What follows is (hopefully) a spoiler-free review. (more…)
It was an exceptional year for TV, and that extended to the types of series that have a unique appeal to the nerdy brood. Some shows got better and some shows did actually lose a bit of quality. Some new shows dazzled out of the gate, and some shows disappointed despite our greatest hopes. But for the discerning viewer there was more to get excited about then there was to watch begrudgingly, and as we look to the year 2014, we are reaffirmed in our faith that there’s never been a better time to be nerdy. Submitted for your approval, the Top 10 Nerdy TV shows of 2013 from Nerd Bastards. (more…)
It’s that time of year where we take stalk and make lists, and today we make a list of the Best Nerdy TV Shows of 2012. Now the Best Nerdy Shows are not the same as the regular Best Shows of the Year. Sure, your average nerd may love to watch Homeland, or Mad Men, or Breaking Bad, or maybe even the recently departed Gossip Girl, but the content of those shows are not necessarily nerdy. So for the purposes of this list, the “Best Shows” are ones that take place in a nerdy genre – like sci-fi, fantasy or horror – or feature a cast of characters who fit the definition of nerds.
So now that we’ve gotten than bit of preamble/introduction out of the way, let’s take a look back at the year that was (the final year?) on the boob tube. With a nerdy bend, of course.
