In a lengthy, detailed “making of” blog posting, Wheaton describes the series as “a weekly roundup of the things I love on television and on the Internet, with commentary and jokes, and the occasional visit from interesting people who make those things happen.

“It’s sort of like Talk Soup for geeks,” he continued, “with a heavy focus on those hilariously bad paranormal reality shows (in fact, that’s where the whole thing started a year ago, but as we worked on the show more and more, we discovered that there were lots of scripted paranormal shows that provided a ton of comedic material.)”

Syfy is expected to formally announce the series later today.
