Episode #82: Sitcoms and Nerds


Is the Sitcom going away?  What do you think, Brick Room Listeners.  It seems like the multi-camera sitcom shot in front of a live audience and featuring a laugh track may finally be going extinct.  We’re pretty happy about that, despite the fact that we’ve enjoyed some sitcoms in the past.  We believe TV has evolved beyond the level of the traditional sitcom.  What else is evolving in the realm of TV?  Well, virtual reality is coming.  One day, you’ll sit on your sofa with a pair of VR goggles on your face and experience your favorite TV show or video game as if you were actually there.  We talk about both of these issues on today’s podcast, as well as the impact “nerd” or “geek” culture has had on pop culture at large.  And what is a nerd these days anyway?  What does that word mean?  Finally, we finish up by talking about the use of CGI blood in movies, as opposed to squibs and blood packs.  If you’ve heard our podcast before, you can probably guess our feeling on using CGI blood as opposed to practical effects in movies and TV.  We want the real fake blood.  Tune in, then share your opinions in the comments, we’d love to hear from you.
