Since Derpy Show is brand new to Nerdy Show, we aren’t very sure of who, exactly, are it’s members, especially since, unlike Flame On!, your voices are not starkingly distinct from each other. So, do you think you could introduce yourselves with a bit more elaboration next time? Thanks!
I hate to be “that guy,” but I honestly didn’t enjoy Derpy Show. The jokes were fine, for the most part, but it felt very… opposed to the other Nerdy Show stuff in a lot of ways.
The Nerdy Show cast often portrays the community and themselves as very inclusive, accepting of all types of nerds. This… this was not. In one episode alone, just off the top of my head, they complained about anime lovers, Homestuck, LARPers, and furries (and a few others if I could recall) making sweeping generalizations on a number of fronts about large groups of people. Honestly not a fan of all the people-bashing.
Our guest for the first episode, was one of our cohosts on WPRK, and has been described as our “Bill O’Riley”. He’s no longer going to be a regular on Derpy Show (due to availability), so the hate level will go down a bit. That being said, Derpy Show is not for the thin skinned or those who want to take everything seriously.
I agree with your points, but I must that that it is a welcome experience. The nerdy community as a whole, if such a thing indeed exists, is not as inclusive as Nerdy Show portraits it. Nor is it as repulsive as Derpy Show does. The truth lies somewhere in-between, and different perspectives might just enhance our view.
(Full disclosure; I love World of Darkness to death, but I am repulsed by the very notion of LARP)
More on the ‘biograpy’ side. A “Who’s Who” if you will, but if you say that such a thing will become clearer in the next episode, I trust you.
I liked this, but it’s a bit too early for me to really figure out how much. The first few episodes of all the Nerdy showcase shows have been like “Who are you guys? Where am I? What happened to Nerdy Show?” for me, but then I just don’t handle surprises well.
Also, since it’s on topic, I LARP. And it’s World of Darkness LARP. It’s not really the crazy vampire-obsessed mess that the internet implies it should be, but I’ve certainly met a few people who seem to fit the stereotype. Never met anyone so crazy into it that they’ll sleep with people and not consider it cheating though…
