From one of the most intellectual, nerdy, and low budget cult television shows every made, Tyler Hauck chronicles some pretty sincere life lessons. Perhaps showing, in much the same way that MST3K did, that "You don't have to just swallow media," but can use (even the best media) as a jumping off point into some form of greater understanding.
Lessons are interspersed with "Best of" and "Worst of" lists, plenty of stills from the show, and more...[ continued ]

His love of oddballs and openness to just about any kind of situation makes him the perfect host for this adventure.
