After immersing myself head-first into the world of geek culture these past three years, there is one trend that has become increasingly apparent: nerds love their alcohol. Their livers… not so much.

This observation hit me harder than Charlie Sheen hits the liquor cabinet when Spunky Destructor and I got to sit in the audience of the upcoming television game show, Geeks Who Drink.

The aptly named series, hosted by Chuck alum Zachary Levi, pits two teams of contestants against each other in a pound for pound (or ounce for ounce) face-off to see who can correctly answer the most pop-culture related trivia while also making sobriety an afterthought. Each team of two also receives added help from not-so-sober celebrity judges. Only security and the thoughts of self-humiliation prevented Spunky from rushing the set and jumping over the bar to have her way with one of the male judges.

Mr. Levi, I see your hammer is bigger than mine (but whose isn’t?).

 

The entire set was actually set up to look like an incredibly nice pub and the studio audience sat in adjacent bar tables with all sorts of salty and sweet snacks. The best part? Each member of the audience also received one alcoholic beverage of their choice. Yes, one drink maximum for this show folks; for alas, show producers don’t want to be held liable for any potential bumper-car sessions post-recording.

These lovely Maple Bacon Ale beverages were sent to us straight from Oregon from Geek Outlaw Uber-fan, Jason Kryston who apparently feels we aren’t inebriated enough on the WWP. Thank you for the smokey-sweet buzz, Mr. Kryston!

 

Despite the limits on our alcohol, the contestants and celebrities weren’t capped and it made for a surprisingly fun outing. Make sure to listen to the podcast to get more stories from the taping. Our episode is supposedly the fifth one taped and the series will begin airing on SyFy this July. More details to come on that soon.

 

Geeks Who Drink 2

Before becoming a television game show, “Geeks Who Drink” started as a nationwide pub trivia contest. Alcohol can have its benefits.

 

On the movie front, Spunky D and I also managed to sit down and chat about a tiny little flick a few of you might have heard of – Avengers: Age of Ultron. As with any blockbuster film that brings in more money than the value of the United States’ GDP (especially a well-received one), expectations for its all-but-eventual sequel reside somewhere in the upper layers of earth’s atmosphere. Listeners who tune into the 21st episode of the Wild Wild Podcast will be treated to our thoughts on the film, how it stacked up against the original, and more importantly, our mutual fondness for Scarlet Witch’s most intriguing assets… errr, powers.
