I am geeky about allot of things and comic books are one of them. So when I heard about a show, Comic Book Men, based on Kevin Smith’s comic book shop Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, I had to check it out.
The show is reality based and it is primarily filmed at the shop in New Jersey. This show follows the guys at the shop, their daily activities, and the customers that visit. It also shows Kevin and the guys during their podcast where they discuss the show and comic books in general.
My kids truly love this show, and they look forward to it each week. We typically DVR it, so we can watch it together on the weekends, because our weeknight schedule can be pretty hectic. They enjoy seeing what the guys in the shop are up to, the comic books mentioned, and the “toys” that customers bring into the shop to sell. If we ever get down to the New Jersey area, I’d love to take them into the store to look around, and probably by something.
The show is on AMC Sundays at 10/9 central. If you like comic books, I recommend checking it out. For more information about the show, check them out on AMC’s website: http://www.amctv.com/shows/comic-book-men. Amazon Instant Video also offers previous shows. As of this posting, they are currently priced at $1.99 per episode for purchase ($1.89 per episode with TV Pass), or $10.99 for Season 1. They are offering Seasons 1, 2, and 3. It’s showing 6 episodes for Season 1, 16 for Season 2, and 8 so far for Season 3 – the latest episode aired on Dec 1. I don’t have a link, but if you go to Amazon and type in “Comic Book Men” it was the first three links to show up for me.
