Several years ago the band the Arrogant Worms sang "It's Great to Be a Nerd," and time has proven them right. Some of the hottest movies and television shows are based on comic books, video games are one of the hottest forms of entertainment, the Internet is bigger than ever, and science fiction and fantasy are wildly popular. (Heck, one of the biggest shows on tv is The Big Bang Theory, featuring four uber-nerds.) So does the reality competition show King of the Nerds salute geek culture or mock it? More the latter.
