Travel Through Time With Saturday’s Nerdist TV Special

Hey, there’s another Nerdist TV special this weekend on BBC America! And this time, I’m finally gonna get it in HD! (happy dance) (I just realized HD COULD stand for “happy dance”) If you, like me, are a Verizon FiOS subscriber, BBC America’s been added to the HD lineup as of a couple of days ago. This pleases me no end. But whether you get the HD or SD version, you should be tuning in on Saturday night, 10/9c, for The Nerdist: Tribute to Time Travel. What can you expect? Well, Damon Lindelof drops in, and Tom Weston-Jones, star of the new original BBC America series Copper, is also on the show. It’s part of a whole time travel evening, starting at 9/8c with The Timey-Wimey of Doctor Who:

And here’s a special sneak peek at the Nerdist special, with Tom Weston-Jones discussing — I kid you not — merkins:

While you’re at BBC America, you should stick around for Sunday’s premiere of Copper, too, 10/9c, from no less than Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana and about the top detective in New York in 1864, when things in the city were a bit different.

You have plenty to watch this weekend. Make sure these are on your list.


  1. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr…

    well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  2. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she desires to be available that in detail, so
    that thing is maintained over here.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone
    and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple
    ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of
    hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods
    to prevent hackers?

    @Sean – Thanks for the news that BBC America is now in HD on FiOS. Added it to my favorites and changed the DVR of tonight’s show accordingly.

    Of all the idiotic things they put in the message center, this info would have actually been RELEVANT.

  14. Becca C. says:

    Very excited for this!

  15. Sean says:

    Also a Fios customer and realized that BBCA was in HD today…. nearly shat myself with joy when I realized I’d finally get to see Nerdist, Dr Who and Top Gear in HD FINALLY…. I literally just Googled BBC America in HD 3 or 4 days ago probably less than 24 hours before they launched it.

  16. Ah, thank you for the good news, Rob! (I didn’t know!) Canadians, you know what to do. Wednesday, 9 ET/6 PT, Space:

    Same channel as Doctor Who, Grimm, Eureka…

  17. Rob B says:
