Storyline

Beat the Geeks is a game show where contestants must match their knowledge against the geeks. The three main geeks of each episode are the TV geek, Movie geek and Music geek. Each episode as a geek who specializes in a different field such as Star Wars, comic books, KISS, or the Sopranos. The contestants get easier questions than the geeks and must accrue the most points to make it to the final round. Written by FMJ_Joker

Quotes

Blaine: First you have to survive the toss up round, hands over your buzzers, the first one to buzz in with the correct answer will get 10 points and the chance to go up against a geek. Now here's how the follow up works. If you beat the geek you get ten points. If he beats you, you get knocked back 5.

Unbeatable
1 March 2003 | by CursedSlytherinSee all my reviews

This is by far the absolute best television game show on the air. It is extremely unfortunate that Comedy Central replaced its time slot with the less worthy night time talk show that now haunts the station.

The show has it all: comedy, fabulous prizes, excellent trivia, and intellect. Not only does it appeal to the trivia buffs and other geeks of the world (raises hand), but it appeals to those who wish to keep the intelligent side of television alive and running.

TV does not have to be brainless, and Beat the Geeks proves it.

My rating: a perfect 10
