The newly launched Nerdist Channel might really be on to something. I’ve watched a few of their shows this week, but the one that I wil definitely check out regularly is Harry Knowles’ Ain’t it Cool…
Okay, so Harry starts off talking about a rare King Kong movie prop, so he obviously had me at “Kong bomb,” but I was legitimately interested in everything else he talked about and I was really impressed with the production quality. Seriously, I want to live in that ‘basement.” I hope they change up the scenery with each episode so that we can search for posters and props like Easter eggs. I noticed Captain America and Thor posters that were only given out to people involved in the production of the movies, and a cool vintage King Kong poster was hanging on the wall behind the desk.
Harry talks about the upcoming Profiles in History auction and shows off the catalog (sadly, my copy appears to be lost in the mail) — remember, Profiles in History is the group featured on Syfy’s Hollywood Treasure, which should be returning to the air next month. And then he talks about Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtle movie and the Prometheus trailer. Like I said, every topic he hit on, is one that interested me, so I will be checking it out each week.
The major television networks should rightfully be looking over their shoulders, because if we get more entertainment like this fed to us via youtube, their days are numbered.
