Boring, 23 May 2013
Author: kristinarnors from Reykjavik, Iceland

I have a feeling that this show is not going to live long. The only thing that keeps the podcasts interesting are the guests, and the more each guest gets to speak, the better it is. The TV show is a lame alternative to the podcast.

There are just so many things that I find annoying about the show. Especially since it has a lot of potential to be amazing. The only thing the hosts of this show need to do is ask their guests some questions that the viewers might find curious, and let them speak for a change. I know more about Chris then I do about my mother, he really loves to talk about himself, what he likes, his showbiz career (which is random and not that exciting - since I'm being honest) and last but not least, how much of a nerd he is.

On top of that, there is a lot of cringe worthy brown-nosing. We get it, some of these people are pretty cool, but again, viewers don't need to hear it. It's not that I have anything against them expressing their admiration for somebody, it's just that you get tired of hearing a detailed description of how much Chris loves a certain show and how he's met a certain cast member and how he thought that they would have a major attitude and then he found out they actually didn't... etc.

And to add to the list of annoyance, the various games and skits they do on the show are not entertaining, and one gets the feeling that they are designed to be added to their showbiz gag-reel. Like 'hey, let's do a sitcom thing and maybe someone will see it and give us a deal for a sitcom'.

Lastly, the show isn't nearly nerdy enough for those who are nerds through and though. The Nerdist is basically a nerd-lite phenomena.

I assume Matt and Jonah together could make this show both nerdier and better. But that being said, I genuinely think all of these guys are nice people and I have nothing personal against them. This show as a whole just doesn't work for me. I give them credit for the effort, but it's just not for me.

I would recommend the Kevin Pollack Talk Show, The Howard Stern Show or The Adam Carolla Show, for those who feel the same way I do.
