$19 for 8 episodes of a "B" level show is just too much. Why even offer shows produced in HD in SD? For a popular show, the networks make about $0.025 per viewer for each 30 second commercial. So, for an hour show that would mean the network would make about $1 per viewer. Why charge more than double that price for a distribution method that has less overhead? $10 for these 8 episodes would be reasonable, but $18.99 was just too much. I liked the show, but I still feel ripped off.

This was a fun diversion, although it never crossed over into the transcendent entertainment I was hoping for. This was mostly because the structure of the episodes becomes pretty predictable pretty fast. They basically fall back on the same structural gag every time and, once you figure it out, it gets really obvious who is going to get kicked off the show each week. With all that said, it was still enjoyable and the ending wasn't as predictable as I feared it might be. There's some fun to be had here and it's worth a view if you like nerd culture and don't have anything better to do.

I loved watching this because most of the contestants I liked, I watched on YouTube prior to watching. If I did not know anything about any of them I would not like it as much but it was still very fun to watch.

My whole family enjoys watching King of the Nerds presently on TV. Some of them didn't see Season 1 on how the whole show got started. We are queuing up Season 2 for next time we are looking for something to watch together.

This show was built on an awesome idea - a reality competition by nerds for nerds. Where it goes wrong is that it sometimes rewards un-nerdlike behavior with wins. I'm torn here because I don't want to give anything away, but when this show was done I was sorry I paid money for it. That's the most honest I can be in this space. Buy at your own risk.

For the record, I hear season 2 is much better.

This is a pretty standard reality competition show, where contestants have to survive challenges or risk being voted out by the other contestants. Most of the people involved are interesting at least, but this format is getting pretty tired.

By and large these are some unique individuals. They break a lot of 'Nerd' stereotypes with their multicolored hair, tattoos, drinking etc. The are also more of an eclectic bunch of people. You have your stand-bys: gamer, comic-book guy, LARPer as well as a neurosurgeon and a disruptive engineer (hacker).

The 45 minute show is broken down in three segments. A competition segment where the two teams compete in a 'nerd' type event with a twist such as the debating a view-point of a comic related theme like do super heroes attract super-villains.

The next segment, is all talking. Once once side wins, they 'nominate' one of their member to go into the elimination aka 'nerd-off'. The winning team nominates the other contestant. This is where the show breaks down, but I will get to that in a moment.

The final segment is the 'nerd-off' and features some bizarre games, such a rolling a giant dice down a hill to know over statues for points.

The biggest problem is the effect the nerd-off has on the show. The winning team will pick the person who is the strongest on the team. The losing team will generally pick an un-liked person. However, no one knows what the actual event will be. The has the effect of knocking out the strongest players very early in the game, while the eventual winner is at best a one trick-pony.

The best part of the show, the events get very little air time. The scheming and maneuvering was render moot, due to the inability to know what the event was. The elimination was basically a coin toss, as arbitrary an Apprentice Board-room.

Ultimately there King of the Nerds is not about crowning the 'King' but rather, the least knowledgeable and least threatening person.
