Ummm...he sucked. He certainly LOOKED like a geek, though. Still, I found that show pretty unbearable at times (too much canned heat I think).

Best... game show... EVER. And I, like everyone else here, I'm sure, am pretty confident I could be the Wrestling Geek.

Wow. Today was the first day I watched that show in months (I too think it gets to be unbearable half way through an episode), and was wondering the same thing. Is that the same girl, though? Or did she get a haircut? I dunno. She looked different to me, for some reason.

I'll confess to having that thought as well
What topics could they use for the GeekOff, though? I doubt there are enough topics that are both easy enough for non-fans while tough enough for the geek....

I hate the new host. He's just annoying, and seems like a camera whore.

And is it just me, or are the questions this season even more mind-numbingly easy for the contestants?

Well, if everyone else but me can name one actor from "This is Spinal Tap," than yes, they are mind-numbingly easy.

To clear up a couple of things:

A) Blaine Kapatch, former MAD TV writer, is the new host. IMDHO, he sucks donkey balls through a garden hose. I had no problem with J. Keith VanStraaten, who (to paraphrase a recap term) did Perfectly Fine Hosting. If I hear "Thanks, Tiffany" in that mock G-S voice again, I'll sledgehammer my TV. Unlike HHH, *my* sledge will job.

I'll see if I can find out why there was the change.

B) Yes, that is still Tiffany.

C) BTG 2.0 is actually a bit better; they've updated the graphics a tad, the first round is actually watchable from a quiz POV, and the Three Geek-migos are still there. Blaine brings it down. Lemme put it this way -- a ***1/2 to **** show down to a **1/2 because of him.

D) BTG is *not* the best in the world. Maybe to you, but to me, a nice Password Plus or Jim Perry-hosted Card Sharks does the trick.

I think short-haired Music Geek was gone after prolly 10-15 eps, when Andy took over; the reason why you saw Shorty enough times is due to the sensation of taping shows in order, not having a returning champion so that you can air them out of order.

AFAIK, all King World game shows, Weakest Link and TPiR are the only shows that have episodic numbers (even tho' WL doesn't have a returning champion). I would assume Pyramid will have episodic numbers b/c there's either going to be a returning champ plus celebs.

However, if you look at GSN's first-runs, CC's game shows and a couple of other games, they're completely out of order. BTG is more glaring cuz of the two music geeks.

I guess you could say Andy would be like Michiba on Iron Chef.

were they out of order? because it seemed to me that the music geeks would alternate shows because i've seen shows where they both were on with the same guest geek [007, star wars, star trek come to mind]

They were shown out of order, yes. IIRC, the first ep filmed was with the Star Trek geek from Trekkies (with the short hair music geek, I believe.). Marc Edward Heuck (The Movie Geek) previewed it at a rehersal for Shock Treatment at the NuArt Theater (where he's manager and projectionist) last October. All the shows are filmed over a few day period.

The short hair music geek might've been too busy with his dayjob (if Marc's any indication, the geeks all still have their dayjobs) to continue with the show.

More comments on BTG:

Out of the Three Amigos, Both Andy and Paul have been on games as contestants before; Andy lost in a Terminator IIRC on "Greed," and Paul, of course, won a TV Land quiz bowl -- hence his "King of TV" moniker.

Paul has posted both on alt.tv.comedy-central, and alt.tv.game-shows; you can google it if you want. Interesting threads.

I'm more the Marc mark myself -- he seems to have the most out-there but coolest personality of the three.

I don't know the others personally, but yeah, Marc's pretty cool. He introduced me to the brilliance of "The Adventures of Captain Invincible", so I'm indebted to him for that.

holy crap, who is this new FAT, SHORT-HAIRED BLONDE MUSIC GEEK????

i heard rumors of having more than 2 music geeks so they would have different music tastes on the show...

damn...they just asked the tv geek who he'd like to see in a celeb boxing match, and he said to the new host "You and J. Keith Van Stratten"

"What? he'd KILL ME!"


word.

Harry Knowles on the Subway diet. ;P

I wasn't fond of his 2-2-3 strategy; it had the same logic of Bruce Kimm's managerial strategy lately for the "Coobs".

He won, but as you saw in the back... both Marc and Paul are screaming "THREE!".

Paul's booking was QOTD, followed by Marc's "[insert porn music here]... Bend over -- you know the rest." Classic taunting.

Ahh... and to see J. Keith do the Houston Hangover on Blaine looking up at the lights.
