Is This the Greatest Nerd Entertainment Weekend Ever?


If you one of the few people who loves Steven Moffat’s Sherlock series and yet resisted the urge to torrent when it aired on the BBC half a year ago, the second season (of only three episodes, sob) premieres this Sunday at 9pm. Which got me thinking: Is this the greatest nerd entertainment weekend ever?

Obviously, the Avengers officially opens in America today, and, as I’ve mentioned, it’s pretty goddamn good. Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day, which is swell. TV-wise, we have part one of the Fringe season 4 finale tonight, a new episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday, and the aforementioned Sherlock season 2 premiere on Sunday night as well. Cartoon-wise, we’re looking at new episodes of Young Justice, ThunderCats, the CG Green Lantern, an Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the goddamn Guardians of the Galaxy in it, and a Legend of Korra, too.
That’s insane, people. That’s so much goodness even FFF can’t get me down right now. Seriously, can anyone think of a weekend where more great nerd stuff happened? And I doubt if we’ll get such a perfect storm of nerd awesomeness again in our lifetimes, so enjoy it, my friend. Enjoy.
