Classroom Chaos: Top Ten High School Outsiders

23 February 2015 6:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the hardest bouts of growing pains experienced by adolescents is that rite of passage known as the high school experience. In high school one is subject to discovering their own sense of self-identity and purpose. In fact, sometimes the social factor is crucial because the cost of belonging in social-related circles is vital in a four-year commitment to belonging among your peers.

However, not every youngster can cope with what they are faced as the obstacles to excel are demanding in high school.

Why you should be watching 'King of the Nerds'

20 February 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The competition between nerds is now in its third season, and you should be tuning in every Friday. Why? Super-nerdy and fun challenges A giant game of Angry Birds. A giant game of Battleship. A giant Rubik's Cube. Quidditch, complete with flying. Robots playing dodge ball. A real-life version of Tron. Nerf guns shooting down drones. Lots of quizzes on nerd-ish trivia. The show's challenges--two each episode, one team challenge and one individual challenge--play on nostalgia and pop culture. They always have a sense of humor, and they're also visually interesting, fair competitions that rival those on bigger shows. Great hosts having fun "King of the Nerds" offers a big portion of wackiness and ridiculousness with a side of self-deprecation, and it's all served on a bed of a serious competition. Hosts and executive producers Curtis Armstrong and Robert Carradine, who starred in "Revenge of the Nerds," set that tone. »
