“King of the Nerds” loves its nerdy guest stars. More specifically, “King of the Nerds” likes to put its nerdy guest stars into strange situations. That is definitely the case with George Takei on Thursday’s (Feb. 27) episode — he ends up behind bars.
Sure, they are rubber bars, but the concept is still the same. The Nerds get the challenge of saving him, and it sounds like Jack is the victor.
The show probably can never find another nerd icon quite as game for anything as Takei. In addition to his iconic role as Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek” series, Takei has reinvented himself as an activist and a meme generator in the Internet age.
What more could a nerd want?
“King of the Nerds” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on TBS.
