Let's Talk: Geeks who Drink

Good afternoon, all!

I'm not sure if anyone else has been watching the new Syfy show Geeks who Drink, but I'm in love with it. Mainly, because I am a sucker for any sort of trivia, but also because I've found that I now have a huge crush on Zachary Levi.

The show started a few weeks ago and it's basically like a bar trivia game show with celebrities. Basically, there are two teams of three captained by a celebrity, each team has to answer nerdy questions asked by Zachary Levi (the very amusing and enthusiastic host) in order to rack up their bar tabs, and the team with the highest bar tab at the end is the winner.  Along with answering questions, there's also challenges they need to do as well--think of it almost as a smaller nerdier version of the physical challenge on Double Dare.

Throughout the game, if the teams are tied or whenever they go to break, everyone including the audience takes a drink, so it's a very interactive game show as well. Aside from the trivia, each team also comes up with a witty/pun related team name; like for example, Alan Tudyk, aka Wash from Firefly, was just on and his team name was "Slurenity." Genius. I am always up for a play on words.

I've loved game shows ever since I was little, and it's been a dream of mine to be on one ever since I used to spend my sick days in elementary school watching The Price is Right and Supermarket Sweep. Mix that love with geeky trivia and Heather is one happy gal.

But seeing as how I don't drink, I guess I'll just continue to drink water and scream all the answers at my TV. Have any of you guys been watching? If not, definitely check it out-- Thursdays at 11 pm on Syfy or catch up with the past episodes here!
