With zombies, mad men, and ex-math-turned-meth-dealers garnering most of AMC’s attention, you might have shamefully missed their beautifully shot, gritty-as-dirt western, Hell On Wheels. Commonly referred to (pun intended) as Deadwood Lite, H.O.W. stands on it’s own as a gripping, complex, and violent look at America’s fabled (yet troubled) conquering of the West. The spirited [...]
“Burning Love“, the brand new web series starring Nerd City favorite Ken Marino, premieres today on the Yahoo! Comedy Channel. A send up of “The Bachelor” and the assorted spin-offs/knock-offs, and featuring Marino, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Michael Ian Black, Adam Scott and more, there is no doubt that B.L. is gonna be hilarious. Learn [...]
Nerd City recently had a chance to attend a “Conan” taping, and it was so mind-meltingly awesome it’s hard to describe (but I’m gonna try). Basically, Conan’s studio on the WB lot is a factory of entertainment, pumping out hilarity and music (The Basic Cable Band is unreal, and they had plenty of opportunity to [...]
For those that have not been following the “Community” saga online, rumblings of unrest had been haunting the show (thanks to a well publicized feud with Chevy Chase), recently culminating with Sony’s termination of creator Dan Harmon as show runner. The amazing thing to me (as a long time fan of the show), is how [...]
Ok. I’m just gonna come out and say it. I love MTV’s Teen Wolf. I know. I can barely believe it myself. As a tremendous fan of the original (and even the inferior-but-still-good Too!), I wanted nothing more than to absolutely hate this show. But goddammit, it’s too good (I know you don’t believe me, [...]
If there are two things Nerd City likes, it’s cartoons we can watch under the influence of drugs and monsters. That’s why the new Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters is so cool. It’s a cartoon we can watch on drugs WITH monsters. Released in conjunction with a card and online battle game of the [...]
Celebrating all that is idiot box, L.A.’s PaleyFest is an amazing series of nightly events that celebrate some of the best shows on television. I was lucky enough to attend the “Community” panel, and it was streets ahead. Discussing the show, with a great public Q & A section (always a rocky proposition), the cast [...]
Today sees the kickoff of CES in Las Vegas. The Consumer Electronics Show features numerous announcements and demos of the newest in technology, with a major emphasis on games and gaming. Although Nerd City was unable to attend this year, our friends over @ Spike TV are doing our dirty work, with over 12 hours [...]
The creative minds behind projects that include Dr. Katz and Home Movies, Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder have made an immeasurable impact on the world of animated comedy. Their most recent work, web cartoon “Explosion Bus“, sees the two working together again, with similarly hilarious results. Nerd City recently had a chance to speak with [...]
Timothy Omundson has played Detective Carlton Lassiter on USA Network’s “Psych” for six seasons. With the series’ fall finale premiering this Wednesday 10/9c, Mr. Omundson recently took some time to speak with Nerd City about the show, his career, his recent appearance in the super cool “Voltron: The End”, and more (including a Big Five!). [...]
As October fast approaches, Nerd City is already in a spooky ookie, creepy crawly mood (we usually are). With the second season of “The Walking Dead” long away (and plagued, pun intended, by production issues), I am particularly pumped for the upcoming FX horror series “American Horror Story”. FX has just released this particularly creepy new [...]
Nerd is the universal language. With an ever-growing segment of Hispanic gamers, Spanish-language network VME has launched Game 40, a weekly video game show for los Nerds que hablan espanol. Featuring interviews, reviews, and coverage, Game 40 is a very cool show, and it’s rad to see Nerd going bi-lingual. Direct Link to Youtube Video Direct Link to Youtube [...]
