Jessica Chobot is off brining her turducken, so once again the job of hosting today’s Nerdist News fell to yours truly. In our first annual Black Friday Spectacular, we try to take the pain out of the post-holiday, mom-trampling bloodsport of deep discount holiday shopping by curating some of the best deals out there so you can go into the Best Buy Thunderdome with a gameplan. From insanely low-priced TVs to the season’s hottest video games at half the price, we’ve got everything you could possibly want in one handy dandy video. Just remember to keep your balance, lock your elbows, and brace for impact because the Nerdist News Black Friday Spectacular starts right now. Now. NOW! Seriously, hit the play button.

And if you see just one Korean remake this week, make it Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley. Sorry, Frozen, but that’s how the cookie crumbles. To take you further inside the mind of a man who ate more dumplings than humanly possible while filming, I sat down with star Josh Brolin for a special bonus edition of Nerdist News.

Check out our Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and geeky book gift guides for some specific inspiration and keep your eyes peeled for even more holiday shopping guides coming your way.
