Joel David Moore,
As someone who regularly goes to Geeks Who Drink trivia, I was disappointed to see the broad range of questions usually asked at those trivia nights reduced to only "geeky" topics like superheroes, television shows, movies, and pop culture. How about history, science, geography, current events? The "geek" in Geeks Who Drink is about knowing a lot of stuff, not just about being the king (or queen) of Comic-con.
I know they have to make the show more TV-worthy, but discarding the GWD format played at bars (which includes audio and visual rounds) and adding out-of-place physical challenges renders this program inert, just another mildly entertaining game show. And not particularly fun. The host, Zachery Levi - whom I was a big fan of in "Chuck" - does his best to hold the show together with funny remarks, but it really isn't enough. Of course, I've only seen one episode so far so there's always the possibility that this show will get better.
