The Nerdist Season 1 Episode 1 TV Show Review
Released : Sept. 24, 2011

When I found out that Chris Hardwick who is a comedian I’m quite fond of had his own talk show that was similar to his podcast I felt the urge to check it out. Now I wish I didn’t.
The show which is on BBC focuses only on other shows on the BBC network in this episode as well. If you aren’t a fan that will be boring. Meanwhile Chris along with his guests aren’t quite funny. Everyone including the normally delightful cast of Doctor Who don’t do much. They play a few games, show some clips, and follow the normal guideline of a talk show but in easy terms watching it is boring.
The best part was the end of the episode when Chris Hardwick has fellow comedian Matt Kirshen come out and do some jokes. It’s really the only part of the episode I found myself laughing to.
Overall the show didn’t impress me a single bit and I’ll have a hard time wanting to continue watching it from this point on.
