Most of Kevin Smith’s loyal fans, such as myself, have been religiously tuning into to S.I.R. (SModcast Internet Radio) and and have heard of this reality shot that they were developing for AMC TV. Tell ‘Em Steve-Dave is one of the original podcasts on the SMod network, currently boasting over 70+ episodes. Walt Flanagan, who runs Smith’s comic book store in Red Bank, New Jersey: The Secret Stash, co-hosts the podcast with Bryan Johnson with appearances by Brian Quinn and some times, Ming Chen.
Apparently, we will see these guys on television soon. I listened to the progress of this show via Smith’s updates on S.I.R. From its inception and up to when they finished the test pilot. It sounds like the pilot turned out very well because AMC ordered a full season with 6 episodes. Hooray!
Another Jersey based reality show, you might say, where drunken whores get into fights and eat a lot of pasta?! Not likely. I’m not sure if they like pasta as much. We might witness Flanagan loose his patience and chew out the other guys and possibly the newcomers at the store but I doubt there will be much fist pumping otherwise. I am looking forward to the rough and tumble comic-book-store-nerdy shenanigans though. If the show is going to be anything like the podcast…– well, I suppose we can feel even more bad when the boys pick on Chen. Don’t make too many sad faces, Ming Chen! You will break hearts!
