Zero Charisma trailer: are nerds people?

I won’t know what to make of this until I see it. It looks like it’s going to trade in nerd stereotypes that do no one any good. Yes, America, nerds are all overweight, undersocialized, overgrown babies who still live with their parents (in that bad way that is meant to indicate a lack of an adult life, not in that realistic way that today indicates no one has any freakin’ money). Nerds are Other, not the PhD lady next door who makes Doctor Who quilts, not the famous handsome actor who eats cookies with a Muppet. Not real people.

We’ll see.

US/Canada release date: Oct 11 2013 (VOD Oct 8 2013)
