Nerd Rage [Comic]

So I was talking to a friend the other day and he said he didn’t know about xkcd. Or Cyanide and Happiness. That made me sad. I only recently discovered Nerd Rage but I’m sure many of you have already seen it – he didn’t know that one either. I love reading comics – mainly because I have always wanted to do them but can’t draw to save my life. I personally find xkcd much more intelligent and hilarious, but Nerd Rage has its moments…like this one.

 P.S. When I was complaining to someone how all the best scifi shows always seem to get cancelled (read: Firefly) they suggested something: the audience for those shows are the scifi geeks. And they all know how to download pirated copies. Buy your DVDs if you want your show to stay on the air.

I went out and bought all the box sets of Stargate, in a hope for revival.

  1. This sounds like a variation on piracy killing the industry. I personally buy the products I think are worthy of my mediocre income, but my opinion is that there are probably a lot more factors to weigh in than just this.

  2. Firefly didn't become big until AFTER it was cancelled. Serenity is the result of the fan base buying the DVDs. Pirating is probably the reason why firefly has its fan base since fox did everything they could to kill it.

  3. sci-fi fans aren't going to be satisfied with download quality, if anyone is going to buy DVDs and Blu-Rays it's sci-fi fans! Hence why I own every episode of Stargate SG1 and SGA (bragg)!

  4. Considering that most sci-fi shows get canceled in their first season there's not really a chance to buy DVD's or pirate the show. The reason that good sci-fi tends to get canceled is because sci-fi shows almost always do poorly during the first season and then get better as the fanbase builds. This is true for nearly every major sci-fi show. Star Trek: TNG and Stargate SG-1 are two perfect examples of slow starters that became huge successes.
