Inside the world of the Santo Domingo geek
18 June 2007 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a really cool episode that delves more into Jerry's character and the world of a geek. Jerry is helped out by a fellow geek and feels he out to repay the favor by helping her fit in. As is pointed out in this episode and is true to life is the idea that if a geek fades out of attention they fade out of existence. Throughout the episode various geeks fade out of existence and the threat of Jerry's new friend disappearing is very real. Jerry is bold in this episode as he takes on this added challenge and is pushed to the limit of reality as well. The episode is very surreal as you get a glimpse of the 'underworld' where the nerds go after they've disappeared. Coolness indeed!
