Nerdist Specials Back On BBC America “SatNERDay”
by Perry Michael Simon on July 23, 2012
Oh, hey, we told you this a little while back, but the day is approaching and it’s time to remind you that the Nerdist specials on BBC America will be back starting Saturday, the 28th at 9p ET. This week will have two episodes — a San Diego Comic-Con International recap at 9p, and a tribute to toys and games at 10p. YOU MUST WATCH BOTH.
You need more reasons? Okay, the Comic-Con episode features guests Damon Lindelof and John Barrowman, plus a chat with the Doctor Who cast, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill. There, you MUST WATCH.
What?!? You want more? Okay, how about the toys and games episode, wherein Chris, Jonah, and Matt become action figures? Aisha Tyler playing a Doctor Who video game with Chris? Yeah, I know, you’re sold now.
You don’t need more reason to tune in to BBC America that day, but the network is insisting on giving you more reason, starting with repeating the entire season 5 of Doctor Who starting at 6a ET. Then, at 7p ET, they’ll be repeating three Nerdist episodes — the episode that accompanied the debut of The Fades, the pilot episode, and 2011′s Year in Review hour. Then, you get the two new episodes back-to-back.
And for the occasion, BBC America has declared Saturday “SatNERDay.” So put it in your calendar, set your DVR, and/or start watching BBC Americs right now and sit there watching all the way through Saturday night, because you won’t want to miss anything.
