Two geeky roommates argue what it means to be a geek. Does exercise, sports games and an interest in team sports preclude one from being a geek? Physical violence may be the only way to settle this.

Behind The Scenes

The script originally called for the Ninth Doctor; due to a lack of leather jacket the Tenth Doctor took his place. Likewise the Sixth Doctor was replaced by the Fourth Doctor although the sonic screwdriver innuendo would not have worked anyways as the Sixth Doctor did not use the sonic screwdriver. The sonic screw driver prop is a Wiimote provided by Elomin Sha.

This video was filmed in Matt's basement suite. The Oilers shirt shirt is reversible with the other side beeing a Flames shirt. Matt's Xbox 360's HD DVD drive stands in as an Xbox 360, a Wiimote as a Wii and Magic card box stands in for a PS3. Due to the low ceiling in Matt's basement, booming was a challenge. Graham experimented with using Paper, an iPad app, to story board this video. Kathleen used her eyeliner to add the appearance to bruising.
