Revenge of the Nerds is another cult classic 80s comedy starring Robert Carradine, Anthony Edwards, Ted McGinley, and John Goodman. The story is your typical underdog story, but it totally works and was ahead of its time. In today’s tech culture, nerd/geek isn’t even a considered a derogatory term. If anything, it’s a badge of honor. Not so in the 80s. Personal computers were still in their infancy and wide-spread Internet was still a good 10-15 years away. Anyway, nerds vs. jocks is always going to be funny if done right and Revenge of the Nerds pulls it off.
Season 3 starts airing on Cartoon Network on April 29th.
Transformers: Robots In Disguise stars Mitchell Whitfield (Fixit), Khary Payton (Grimlock), Will Friedle (Bumblebee), Constance Zimmer (Strongarm), Darren Criss (Sideswipe), Stuart Allan (Russell Clay), Ted McGinley (Denny Clay), Eric Bauza (Drift), Rager Craig Smith (Jetstorm), and Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime).
