Tim and I were among the lucky few who got into the taping of "The Nerdist" end of the year special.
In addition to the always fun Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray and Matt Mira, the guest list also included Wil Wheaton and Nathan Fillion.
As you would expect from a lineup that good, we had a spectacular time. It's always great to see actors like Wheaton and Fillion truly embrace and honor their nerd roots.
The crowd stayed amazingly enthusiastic throughout the taping and got particularly excited when the surprise special guest showed up.
While not giving away too many spoilers we can tell you there was some hilarious talk of how transporters work, the sentencing requirements for Arkham City and how Wil Wheaton invented non-linear editing.
"The Nerdist" end of the year special premieres Dec. 24 at 9 p.m. on BBC America following the "Doctor Who" Christmas special.
