5 Things we'll miss about 'The Wil Wheaton Project'

Wil Wheaton recently posted some sad news for fans of his and The Wil Wheaton Project. Syfy announced it will not pick up the series for a second season and, while Wil’s taking the news in stride, I’ll admit to being bummed about it because I really liked the show.

Still, it’s always better to remember the good than the sad so I thought I’d run down a quick list of 5 things I liked best about The Wil Wheaton Project.

5) Being greeted every week with the words “Hey nerds!” Not only was it great to have a show that was directed at a nerd audience, it was a sincere greeting from one nerd to another. On national TV. That was a first in my experience and I hope it’ll lead to more shows that realize nerds are a demographic to be talked to and not about.Read More

It's the last 'Wil Wheaton Project' of the season—noooooooo!

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “For Wil’s Eyes Only” | Aired Aug 12, 2014

Y’know, it’s been a rough week so far. There are a lot of things that may be bumming you out right now. I’ll admit, I’m not the happiest person at the moment. But you know what? I started thinking about doing my recap and how much I like this show and I started to smile. Maybe it’s just about the little moments right now. Or not. Either way, I’m glad you dropped by.Read More

'The Wil Wheaton Project': That time Wil Wheaton made me look away

Season 1 | Episode 11 | “Wil vs. Hedorah” | Aired Aug 5, 2014

Look out, nerds—Wil is feeling saucy. I can tell by the first minutes of the show, in which he manages to rip the Hercules movie and then toss out one heck of a pickup line.

Oh Wil, you so crazy!Read More

Season 1 | Episode 9 | “Wilraiser: Revelations” | Aired July 22, 2014

Before I start the recap, I want to say that I got to go to the taping for this episode, and it really was a ton of fun. Everyone is super, super nice, and Wil’s a doll. If you’re in the L.A. area, I’d definitely recommend trying to get tickets.

The Wil Wheaton Project (Syfy)

Hey nerds, 'The Wil Wheaton Project' just keeps getting better!

Season 1 | Episode 8 | “Wil Takes Manhattan” | Aired July 15, 2014

Hey nerds! It’s another week, and that means it’s time to recap. Or as I like to call it, tweets with some words thrown in for fun. Let’s do this!

We’re starting with The Strain, and a clip that may be the most in-your-face vampire death by alien: “I have no idea what that was, but then it smashed the guy’s head in.” Like Wil says, “Still a better love story than Twilight.”

We got a spit-tastic clip of Hemlock Grove. Um. If you don’t already know, you don’t wanna know.Read More

Hey, nerds! It’s time for another recap of The Wil Wheaton project, in which I’ll likely put in one too may GIFs and wish I had video of stuff, because I’m laughing too hard to explain it.

That said, I’m pretty sure it’ll be a good show, because Wil seems to be excited about it.Read More

Hey, nerds! It’s time for another episode of The Wil Wheaton Project. Hope you had a good week. Let’s get recapping.

Oooh. Transformers is first up, and Wil starts with “speaking of robots and things that smell bad.” From there, we get a stoner review from YouTube, and then an amazing clip where Optimus Prime blows a raspberry. Wil is very proud of this video. I can see why.Read More

'The Wil Wheaton Project' recap: Women play video games. Get used to it.

Season 1 | Episode 5 | “Episode V: The Episode Strikes Back” | Aired June 24, 2014

As Wil just said, “Hey, nerds! Welcome back to The Wil Wheaton Project.” This is my recap. It’s little and likely goofy, but still good. Yeah. Still good.

Whatever we’re in for, this was a good indication that the show was gonna be interesting.
