Greetings, fellow Pepsi drinkers. I used to watch this show every week on the Sci-Fi channel, which carried it here in the U.S. (it was aired on YTV in Canada, where I seem to recall reading it evolved from a cable-access series). Lively and well-produced, it was basically a fanboy newsmagazine, with Phil (in Toronto) and Nick (in New York, sporting any of various bright haircolors) reviewing comic books, video games and sci-fi. I remember feeling terribly uncool while watching - but, believe me, I'm a pretty cool guy; it's just that Phil and Nick (and their various guest hosts, including Ben Stiller and Kevin Smith) were a few million degrees cooler. I was, however, able to take solace in the fact that neither seemed to appreciate Sailor Moon, which first arrived in North America during the run of this series. (In fact, they were a tad harsh on it - the losers.) Regardless, I always wanted to be like Nick. He was soooooo cool! In fact, the whole show was just a helluva lot of fun to watch.
