Geeking Out is a 30-minute talk show hosted by Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg. They provide a current look at pop culture through a fanboy lens and feature celebrity interviews, discussions and segments out of the typical studio setting.
Kevin Smith is anything but quiet in this new comedy special that was recorded an hour before his heart attack in February. Before he nearly died backstage, onstage he discusses his marriage, his kid and his work (or lack thereof).
Thoroughly enjoyable show. Includes the banter between between the employees of the store and Kevin Smith (owner) in a podcast like setting; as well as the regular rigmarole of comic bookstore banter.
For those that don't know, this show arose from Kevin Smith's inquiry into a "pawn stars" type for for "geek culture". When they were trying to find a comic book store to cover, the lead developer for the show; on AMC's stumbled upon the highly rated "Tell'em Steve Dave" podcast which includes Bryan, Walter and sometimes Ming (we rarely hear Mike, except when he's hearing complaints for a ringing phone, etc). So for those that are complaining about the break points that lead into conversation, you have to understand that this show was only spawned because of a podcast.
This show is not a pure "pawn stars", and it definitely has some adult content; if you care to watch simple buying/selling... this is not the show for you. If you want to be entertained and get a lot of laughs, you should check this show out. Watch for subtle jokes, because they are by far the funniest (which lies along the lines of many of the podcasts in the Smodcast family, because those short comments the employees shoot back and forth to one another are by far the most amusing.
