chrismattjonahnerdistbbc033013All right, you know by now to watch The Nerdist tonight, Saturday night, 10/9c on BBC America, following Doctor Who and the new show Orphan Black, assuming you’re in the U.S.A. (In Canada, look for The Nerdist on Space, Sunday night, 7/6c/4p) Anyway, you should watch, and if you don’t want to take my word for it., fine, go ahead, but read the review in The Hollywood Reporter, in which Allison Keene says this:

“BBC America should be given due for crafting a show that is actually for and by nerds. The Nerdist is a lot of fun, with its jumpy pace and many activities, and with the references flying around like X-wings, there’s no pandering to those not in the know. Instead, it gives the feeling for once that the cool kids are the ones who can casually discuss cylons, the Tardis and Mordor, not the other way around.”

Hah? HAH?? You want more? Go see Entertainment Weekly‘s preview clips, which they’ve made unembeddable here because they can. And then watch The Nerdist with special guests Dominic Monaghan, Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman… oh, just watch the whole BBC America lineup for Supernatural Saturday, because you can. And should. Watch. And if you wanna chat about it, post your comments below.
