A Couple of Outtakes From the Nerdist TV Show

There was a lot of video shot to make the Nerdist TV show. Some of it ended up on the cutting room floor (not literally. They don’t take a razor blade to celluloid anymore. You get the idea). Here are a couple of those outtakes to whet your appetite for the real thing.

Shooting a promo and waiting for the countdown from stage manager Tom McNamara, Matt Smith has a little request:


And while Matt Mira gets made up, Chris gives Jonah some paternal love:


Saturday night, September 24th, BBC America, 10/9c, guests Craig Ferguson and Matt Smith. Spread the word.

    call of duty world at war e the conduit sono sottlnao i primi “esperimenti” di giochi hardcore su wiie guardate gia che buoni risultati. La politica che che c’era ( ora lentamente sta prendendo un altra rotta pur salvaguardando la precedente), non mirava per niente a titoli hardcore, vuoi perche la davano come console spacciata rispetto alle altre ( adesso sappiamo che tutto il contrario ), vuoi per pubblicita e mobbing spietato e negativo nei confronti di essa; nessuna SH ha voluto rischiare di programmare giochi hardcore anche su wii .ma ora a distanza di 2 anni e mezzo si sono dovuti ricredere viste soprattutto le ottime vendite che quest’ultima sta riscontrando sul mercato. Sono curioso di vedere la grafica del wii quando sara sfruttata a pieno.Inoltre , per cortesia, smettiamola di ricriminare che il wii come una PS2 perche non assolutamente vero; anche se il wii solo 3 volte piu potente del gamecube ( sono delle valutazioni molto grossolane, anche perche ci diverse fonti che vedono il wii tra le 5 e le 6 volte piu potente del gamecube collocandolo ampiamente sopra un terzo ma non sopra la meta della potenza di una 360 ) sarebbe comunque largamente piu potente di una PS2 perche gia il cubo all’epoca era quasi 2 volte piu performante della PS2.La piega che i giochi sul wii sta prendendo appare cambiata e buona quindi non ci resta che attendere visti anche i nuovi hardprogetti che prossimamente vedremo sul wii. ciao a tutti ! PS. qualcuno ha smash brawl una buona connessione di rete ? se volete fare qualche sfida questa la mia chat

    Oh jeeze. Ignore me. I see that Craig and Matt were on the same ep. My apologies.

  3. Nikki says:

    I hope I can find it somewhere online! I really want to watch this! Silly iTunes doesn’t have it available in the Canadian store yet. But hopefully soon!

    Also, question: I thought the Craig Ferguson episode was the first one? I mean, I love me some Matt Smith, but what happened to Craig? Has it not aired yet? Have I been living under a rock?

  4. Joe says:

    PLEASE PLEASE watch this, dvr it, watch it again, then another time or 3… i had such a blast at this taping, and am just so happy that these guys are making it… more nice people being nice having fun needs to happen more!!! Good luck and spaghetti-monster-speed to ya!!! here is some more behind the scenes… any whovians or nerdist-ians feel free to add me, love ‘meeting’ like minded peeps 🙂

  5. JE Smith says:

    That blonde lady walking behind, and then in front of Chris is HOT. 🙂

  6. Pablo says:

    To oversimplify: if this is not on torrent I won’t watch it. I can’t. Neither will a whole lot of people. This depresses me.

  7. J-Rod says:


    A good point well made.

  8. m-p says:

    If you torrent the show because you cant see it thats cool.but it would be awesome if you could find some time to tweet bbc america or contact them in some way ,be it e-mail or what not,and let them know that you are a fan who wants to watch the show so they can count you as a viewer and maybe the show will get picked up for more episodes.

    (you probably shouldn’t mention your torrenting the show……..they might frown upon that)

    From A Loyal UK Fan.

    Wishes all the US Nerdist fans (and BBCA subscribers) a viewing pleasure on Saturday Night.


    Come on guys a bit of reciprocal love – my TV licence fee ($225) pays for Doctor Who. I promise to still watch a legal option down the line.

  10. Graham Trudeau says:

    ^ Jonah wins at counter-trolling.

    Anyway, im hoping for a nice healthy torrent, or a legal bbc website to watch the pilot by (my basic, non-bbc laden cable shames me).

  11. Jonah Ray says:

    Hey Zaq, you misspelled your name.

    Who’s the douche now?

  12. Aaron says:

    MY TAHOE!!!! that line about the rednecks and bbca made me laugh so hard.

    Hey I wanna see the Nerdist in the UK just wrote to point of view.

    Join in please

  15. Zaq says:

    This is the first time I’ve seen him and I got to say, J-Ray Ray really does look like a hipster douche.

  16. Devin Smail says:

    I just became an even bigger Matt Smith fan.

  17. It will be fitting that in order to see the show (no BBC America on our basic cable plan), that I will have to go to a nerdy friend’s place to watch.

    Everything posted from the show looks great; here’s hoping for a nice, long run and much success!

  18. Brian says:

    Vincent, you ever hear of a little thing called the Internet?

  19. ++sC says:


  20. Vincent S says:

    Awww! Matt Mira does look like a cherub. Where can I get to watch this if I’m not in America or don’t have access to BBCA?

  21. Reginald_Charming says:

    Damn I wish I had BBCA

  22. Patti Brown says:

    Haha!! I love that Matt Smith wanted “The Wayne’s World thing”! So funny! Also, I believe you Jonah. This show is gonna be so great! I have to wait for a repeat to watch, though.

  23. sewdotcoe says:

    THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!!!! I am so sad I don’t get BBC America on account of not having television, and not being in America.
