    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This show was both good and entertaining (although it did seem a little scripted at parts) all the way till the finale, i agree with the people who are mad because it ended up being a popularity contest, i mean on the one hand, it does kind of make sense to have the other contestants vote, but i don't think it should have been the finale, it should have been maybe the beginning to decide captains or something like that...the point is there are two nerds left, and instead of having them prove which is nerdier by battling it out nerd style (as had been the case up to the finale) it came down to a popularity contest...which isn't that nerdy at all. but other than that one thing (which i really hope they change next season) this was an otherwise enjoyable show Expand

    This energetically produced, brightly colored concoction hits the guilty pleasure spot more often than not.

    As questionable as the setup sounds, it actually strikes the right tone by neither making fun of nor blindly praising the competitors for their quirks (of which they have many).

    There is one clever gimmick--the winner gets to sit upon a "Throne of Games"--but the very-long-hour opener is a tedious affair.
