The new season of Heroes of Cosplay as well as the debut of The Wil Wheaton Project are debuting tonight on SyFy. I’m getting the DVR fired up as well as popping some popcorn to see how the two shows will pan out. I must admit that I’m looking more forward to Heroes of Cosplay as I did enjoy the first season of the show despite the manufactured drama that they tried to whip up.

As I only get to go to a single con per year, watching Heroes of Cosplay allows me to escape my normal, dull life and get the sensation of being at a con and admiring all the great costumes that people put together. From the SyFy website, it looks like we have the normal cast, plus some additional newcomers coming aboard. Don’t take my word on it though as the show might focus more on the new faces and get rid of some of the original cast members. Still, I expect Riki LeCotey and Yaya Han to still feature prominently.

Wil Wheaton Project
The wild card tonight is The Wil Wheaton Project. I don’t know how good or bad the show will be as it will totally depend upon Wil Wheaton himself. The show’s going to be a rundown of current items of geek interest along with his take on geek culture. I think that Wil Wheaton is a good fellow, but I’ve seen some instances where he can come across as too smarmy for his own good. I do hope that the show will be a success. SyFy has desperately needed a show to highlight what’s going on in geek culture for over a decade. I still miss Sci-Fi Buzz that the network ran a long time ago.

  1. Wil Wheaton is the perfect jester with his grimy lice ridden beard and his smug moronic face! Hee hee! Ho ho! Ha ha!

    ‘The jester is an annoying fellow…’

    • He can come across as smug, which doesn’t translate well to hosting a show. Still, I hope it turns out ok.
