I remember lining up all day in Tampa to see the Phantom Menace on opening day. The conditions at the theater were terrible: Broken AC, blurry lens, and a terrible crowd. I ended up leaving the theater feeling a bit drained, like someone had siphoned the “force” right out of me. The movie wasn’t what I was expecting, but there was one thing I loved about the phantom menace and that was Liam Neeson’s portrayal of Qui-Gon Jin.
I owe Attack of the Show a lot (No, G4 doesn’t pay my bills or anything like that). What AOTS does do, is keep me sane. The self proclaimed “…only source for all the stuff you care about” is about to undergo a massive relaunch, and we here at Nerd Appropriate could not be more excited. You see, my line of work can be pretty stressful (there have been stabbings), and luckily AOTS is there each and every evening to help me relax with some good old fashioned laughter. There is only one show on television that manages to deliver the content that tech savy, video game playing, pop culture fanatics really crave… and that show is Attack of Show. *UPDATE* – G4 was actually nice enough to personally send us some press releases with info I wasn’t yet aware of, so check them out!
