    Despite a strong inaugural episode, there are still some kinks to be worked out. Wheaton, channeling a nervous energy, only appeared to relax fully during a few of his jokes, but much more of the material felt stilted. It's a small thing that will surely only get more streamlined as Wheaton settles into the role.

    Loved the show! Wheaton knocked it out of the ballpark (with his wii from his basement) - fun and irreverent! This is the show I have been waiting for - keep it coming! Expand

    He started a little stiff at first (though still fairly funny in a kind of web series kind of way) by the 3rd and 4th episode I was laughing my ass off and sharing the show :P He's getting better since playing around with Seth Green :P Expand

    There is some potential here, as Wil is very entertaining. The show has a great sense of fun. However, the canned laughter needs to go, it doesn't fit and it makes things feel too cheesy. Expand

    I wanted to love this show because I really like Wil Wheaton but its just not that funny. I smiled a few times but I don't think I'll be a regular viewer. Expand

    The show is allegedly for 'nerds' as Wil exclaims every episode, but I can't help but feel that only North American fanboys are invited to the buffet. The jokes are boorish, telegraphed and poorly-written; delivered in a style that leaves you wincing for Wil attempts to salvage a showbiz career.
    Perhaps it's a personal dislike, but the 'immature know-it-all loudmouth' geek subtype is just the worst. Down with this sort of thing!

    Finally, in this era of global audiences, following the same format as Tosh.0 smacks of laziness and pandering to the lowest common denominator. Don't geeks and nerds hold themselves in higher esteem than that?
