  1. Not surprised Guardians won as much as it did. It was one of my favorites of the year. Arrow won way too much. Season 3 had been boring. Big Bang Theory is awful and shouldn’t win anything. It’s just not funny. That should have gone to Silicon Valley. Walking Dead should have won something and True Detective is more drama than GOT. Both are good shows though.

    1. I find Big Bang funny but I have gotten bored with it. It’s too overplayed.

      1. well it’s overplayed because it is syndicated. I actually agree with Steve in the podcast when he says it’s like the 21st century version of Friends, but with geeks.

    2. Why do you feel BBT is awful? Why I enjoy it is you have a show about geeks who the world doesn’t understand. The characters over the 8 years have grown wonderfully. You have others outside of the BBT geeks that tell them when they are going too far. Like Penny and Bernadette. They are able to bring in guests from the geek world like Levar Burton or James Earl Jones, but they don’t just bring them in to say hey here’s this person. They put a reasoning behind it. They created a story with Sheldon and the fact in his past he felt snubbed by Will Wheaton, and thus the rivalry was born, that’s funny stuff.At least it is to me, so I ask again what specifically makes BBT awful in your eyes?

      1. At the center of “The Big Bang Theory” is a portrayal of nerd culture that is surface-level at best. The characters throw around references to comic books, Dungeons & Dragons and astrophysics, but you get the feeling that they’re not really grounded in anything. The jokes sound like they were pulled out of a thesaurus for geeks from the 1990s. I’m not trying to say that TV shows about nerds don’t work. “Community,” for instance, writes lovingly of a broader, more inclusive nerd culture, using it as a starting point for deep, emotional storylines (the episode “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons” is a perfect example). Other TV shows like “The Simpsons,” “Adventure Time” and “The IT Crowd” regularly feature nerd culture, giving it heart where “Big Bang” sells it for a cheap laugh.

        Of course, the show’s major sin is that it isn’t funny. Laugh tracks can work well (“Seinfeld” and “Cheers,” for example), but “The Big Bang Theory” uses them as a crutch. The jokes tell the audience what to laugh at instead of letting them figure it out for themselves. Especially in early seasons, Penny was used as a way to explain any science-related joke to the viewer. It’s like begging people to laugh.

        1. see when I hear the jokes I laugh before the laugh track kicks in… but to each their own. I still think the show has done well with advancing it’s characters. In Season 1 Sheldon would have never even taken leonard’s feelings into account on anything. But as the show has progressed it has gotten better. look at howard Season 1 compared to now. He was a creepy kinda geek, and now he’s married and sometimes funnier than what he used to be.

  2. I voted for the Geekcast Radio for Best Podcast because I thought you were using it add a catch all of you couldn’t decide which to choose. I didn’t know there was an actual podcast called Geekcast radio.

    1. Yeah we made it a drop down after about 2 days when people mistakenly chose other top listed drop downs rather than select one in the below.

      Yeah we do have the GeekCast Radio Podcast which features more general topics and specific, Music Spotlights, Top 100 Countdowns, Top 10 Lists, etc.

  3. How does Transformers win over Saga. That is bat shit crazy to me. Seriously if you like comics you need to be reading Saga. The only nominee that had no business winning was Transformers.

    1. I’ll say again, I wish we had distinguished between the two TF ongoings, that way it would be a bit more fair. Next year we will distinguish them better! What IDW has done with their TF run has been pretty damn solid and a lot of people love it. Especially James Roberts’s writing on More Than Meets the Eye.
