TV Review: King of the Nerds S3E2 And Now For Something Different

king of the nerdsTwo nerds enter and one nerd leaves as the third season of King of the Nerds sees the second episode where cosplay tests the nerds.

This episode saw the contestants put together cosplay and act out a skit for judges to decide who should win. The winner is rather surprising, but overall the episode’s real focus is the personalities coming out and an alliance forming.

Some folks take the loss pretty heavily, which puts on display the fact a few of the nerds have some issues interacting with people. The social interaction this season is just so odd, and I’m sure it’s not helped by some editing. That’s on full display this episode as the women discuss their sexuality, and the men are left in the wind. I’m sure there was more to the conversation, it’s just obviously cut a certain way to titillate the audience.

The most interesting thing this season is the alliance formed, which is the highlight so far. It’ll be only time before it melts down, or folks figure it out.

It also feels the challenge this week was recycled. It was cosplay and a skit. I feel like we’ve seen that one before.

What really strikes me this season is howunlikeable this cast is. There’s no one I’m cheering for, it’s really deciding who is the least irritating or bad spirited. Something about this season isn’t as enjoyable as pasts, so it should be interesting to see where the rest of the season goes.
