Do you remember Wil Wheaton? The young nerdy, and way too smart kid from Star Trek: Next Generation?
Of course, you might remember him from Stand By Me, or more recently “The Big Bang Series”. SyFy has given Wil a new platform, “The Wil Wheaton Project”, a thirty minute show that highlights the current genre entertainment, in a comedic style.
I was happy to hear about this adventure, until I watched the first episode (which is currently available on the channel’s website as well as Hulu), and was incredibly disappointed. Lame jokes, bad laugh tracks, games that are supposed to be funny, but are really not, litter the show, and make it more of a waste of time, then honoring the genre that I love. The quality is that off a purely produced YouTube channel, and I must say, I have seen a lot better on YouTube.
Maybe the second episode will learn from the mistake of the first, but I will not stick around watching it, as the first experience was already too disappointing.
