Back in the Spring of 2014, and then again in the Spring of 2015, Geek Hard produced a series of television episodes for the FIBE TV 1 Channel on the Bell FIBE Network. The show was simply titled GEEK HARD TV! Each episode was under 10 minutes and focused on nerdy things happening in the Greater Toronto Area. We talked to comic creators, attended geek trivia nights, took a tour of famous film locations, and even had a retro video game showdown. It was fun times. At the time, the only way to check this content out was if you were a Bell FIBE subscriber. But that was then. This is now.
Over the next few week’s, we will be releasing some clips and a few full episodes of the show on the Geek Hard Facebook page and Youtube Channel. You can check out the first two episodes of GEEK HARD TV below.
EPISODE 1: COMIC CREATORS IN THE GTA!
In our first episode, Andrew and Mr. Green run down a number of awesome annual geek events that take place in Toronto. They also interview comic creators J. Torres, Svetlana Chmakova, Kalman Andrasofszky and Adam Gorham about the wealth of talent that calls Toronto home. This one is a special episode as we host it from The Silver Snail Comic Shop
EPISODE 2: NERDY TRIVIA NIGHTS!
This episode is just as the name says. Andrew and Mr. Green check out some local trivia nights in Toronto like WOO HOO! Classic Simpsons Trivia Toronto and Seinfeld Toronto Trivia. After observing players at both these shows, the guys decide to put their money where their mouth is and test their skills. See how they do at Toronto Geek Trivia.
We’ve got more episodes coming your way over the next few weeks, dropping every Thursday. To make sure you don’t miss an episode, follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our Youtube Channel (and turn the bell notification on so you’ll be notified as soon as an episode goes live!).
Thanks to everyone who helped in making GEEK HARD TV many moons ago. Hope you enjoy this piece of lost Geek Hard lore!
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
