Wil Wheaton Talks About "The Wil Wheaton Project"

Wil Wheaton once appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation. As a nerd and a geek he appealed to the info-gadget freaks among us. He also did a stint in The Big Bang Theory recently and started The Wil Wheaton Project. It is a weekly program on nerd culture that premieres on SyFy Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET. 

In an interview, Will said that his show, "The Wil Wheaton Project," was a celebration of all things geeky. The fun parts and the foibles all got discussed on the television segment. All that Wil did during his time on the Internet was portrayed in televised form. 

"I really want everyone in the world to see my show, because I'm super proud of it and I think a lot of you will enjoy it. If you have to use alternative means to see it, I'm not going to try to stop you. BUT -- if you can watch it in some way that the network can score (on broadcast or via one of the legally-supported websites), please do that, because the more people who watch it in a way the network can count, the more likely it is they will order a full season of the show," said Wil Wheaton in a G+ post.

As a celebrity geek in his own right, Wil Wheaton gets to talk about the television shows, movies, video games and websites on his private platform. 

"The Wil Wheaton Project" was a compilation of the very stuff that Wil loved to engage in time after time. He said that being a nerd was about the way you loved what you did day in and day out. By the way, Wil won’t be discussing the wrongdoings of the NSA since that is not funny enough for his show. He is there to entertain and not to criticize. 

He also likes board games which involve sitting down quietly with other people and enjoying the low-key action taking place within the confines of a single room. 

TableTop is his favorite board game. Of course, there were times in his life when Wil was simply going insane. How he managed that is another story altogether. He still occasionally suffers from the tortures of depression and has been very open about it. 

Bouts of the disease started in his youth and he also came to know that there was a lot of stigma attached to having the mental illness. But somehow through a mixture of talk therapy and medication he pulled through. 

His show for now deals with the technological and highly abstruse stuff of the universe. And it presents it in a funny and lively way. Two cheers for Wil!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
