Tor.com has recently published a list of films and TV shows that are in development and will hopefully be released in the next couple of years. These stories are those that have historically been in “the nerd” genre of shows. The list is chock full of great stories and I’m excited for all of them to hopefully come to fruition. Over the last few years, these types of shows have been prevalent in the movie theaters and on TV. Movie studios and actors have started to really gravitate towards producing these stories as of late.
Because these shows are very lucrative and make a lot of money. But this money doesn’t come from a select few, they come from the everyday TV watcher and movie goer. These stories are being consumed by everyone, no longer the stereotypical 1980’s Revenge of the Nerds fan. That stereotype is long gone, but yet still seems to persist in our minds.
Nowadays, people just want to see a good story filled with drama, action, relationships, and good character development. Whether that is in a courtroom, at the fire station, in space, in Westeros or Gotham, or on another planet, as long as it’s good and entertaining; people will watch it.
So welcome to all of you non-nerds, because it’s a good time to be a nerd.

For those that listened to our first Middle Earth Saga podcast episode where we talked about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, you heard us talking about the Silmarillion and it’s historical value with Middle Earth. The Silmarillion is the history of the Middle Earth and is a very complex creation by JRR Tolkien.
