It’s been a busy week, causing me to fall even further behind on my TV shows. On Monday night, I recorded another episode of the TV Times Three podcast, and the rest of the week, I’ve been in training for work—with a dozen folks (including 3 of my past/current managers) all in town for the week. We’ve also been getting a lot of snow here in New England, which has really excited these visitors from California. Tonight, there’s hardly anything on TV, but Jenny and I have some suggestions on a couple of non-Olympics programs you should check out.
On last week’s King of the Nerds, each of the contestants had to build a robot to compete in a game of Robot Dodgeball. For the third week in a row, Zack was put up for elimination, with Nicole joining him this time in the Nerd-Off. The two had to play a game of Zombi KerPlunk, and somehow, Zack managed to survive yet another week—this evil villain will just not die!
I cannot stand Zack—he is so irritating. Someone really needs to beat him one of these weeks! Also, I wish this show had a nerd-makeover episode, like Beauty and the Geek used to do. That one bearded guy needs a shave badly. However, since this show is all about celebrating the nerds as they are, I know that will never happen. But either way, I’m still enjoying the show, and I’m really looking forward to tonight’s episode, as I find tonight’s guest judge, Kumail Nanjiani, hilarious.
On tonight’s episode, “Trek Wars,” the contestants debate an age-old question, and one nerd’s big revelation comes into play. The guest judges are Kumail Nanjiani and Billy Dee Williams.
To see if someone can town Zack down, tune in to TBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Chopped Canada and Portlandia.
