Season 2 Episode 9
If there's one thing all nerds have in common, it's a deep and abiding love for science fiction. Why, some nerds love sci-fi so much, they would devote an entire hour of television to it. That's right: time to set your eyeballs to "watch!" It's The Nerdist Tribute to Sci-Fi, because, let's face it, most of us would rather live in the Shire or Flotsam Paradise than in our current abode. We'll hear from horror master Guillermo del Toro - the nicest man in Hollywood.. He's giving us the lowdown on one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, Pacific Rim. Also joining Chris and the gang will be the angelic Katee Sackhoff, star of Battlestar Galactica and 24. We'll find out what fictional world they'd like to dwell in and then we'll put their knowledge of British programming to the test in the television trivia game BBC(een) It! Also, Matt Smith sends one of his battalion of mechanical clones to talk more about life as the Doctor. All that, plus an exclusive look at the supervillain version of TED Talks (aptly named ZOD Talks) and the comedic stylings of Ron Funches. This show killed at the Mos Eisley Cantina and you'll love it too!
