"King of the Nerds" on TBS
I was a fan of the original "Revenge of the
Nerds" movie, so naturally I
found myself drawn to watch last Thursday's "King of the
Nerds" television series.
Perhaps, it is the secret desire to break free and
experience the freedom of the "Nerd"
contestants to be whomever they are and happily not to
give a darn about conforming to what society tells them
they must be.
I found this particularly refreshing of all the "Nerd"
contestants, apparently blessed with this freedom since
Some Nerd contestants seems to
have advanced degrees in science or mathematics and some
don't. So most of us would probably be unable to qualify
for Nerdvana and must settle to just watch the show.
I loved the surprising twist in the show when the last
Nerd is left standing all alone
and not chosen by either team, blue or gold. It warmed
my heart to think of a small child who might be watching
the show who recently (perhaps at school) like the
Nerd in "King of the
Nerds" had been the "School
Nerd" left unselected.
Think of the childs self-esteem being raised to find
out that the "Nerd" left out in
the show is really special and now has the power in the
"King of the Nerds" show to
kick-off one of the Nerd
contestants from one of the teams and the power to
choose which team she would like to join from the two
teams that did not pick her.
If for that alone the "King of the
Nerds" television show has genuine value, not
only as pure "Nerd"
entertainment, but also for those viewers whose laughter
at the Nerd contestants really
conceals their secret envy to be as comfortable as the "Nerd"
contestants are with their own brand of Nerdiness to
eventually ascend to the throne of "King of the
Two "Nerd thumbs up".
