gr star wars clone wars comic-conLionel Lum's awesome Bumblebee costume was one of the many cool things I saw at last year's San Diego Comic-Con. The giant show floor was packed with sweaty costumed fans, big geek friendly displays, and a few not-so incognito celebs. Folks at home got a small taste of all the corporate sponsored nerdery thanks to G4's daily coverage. This year, G4 will air the first televised panel in the convention's history.

Attack of the Show
hosts Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira will host "The Star Wars Spectacular." The taped panel will feature special guests, a table read and new footage from Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The panel will take place July 24 and air July 25 at 2 p.m. on G4. After the panel broadcast, G4 will air three live hours (on the East Coast) of Comic-Con coverage with celeb interviews and more.

Donkey Kong champ Steve Wiebe tries to defeat evil live on television

Steve Wiebe from The King of Kong: A Fistful of QuartersThe saga of video game champion Steve Wiebe, the man made famous by the wonderful documentary film The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, is one that will be told on mountain tops by the elders of the tribes to young men as they pass into adulthood.

Wiebe struggled to achieve the success he so richly deserved for chasing the Donkey Kong world champion title from the Twin Galaxies score organization, due in part to the underhanded and downright evil efforts of reigning champion and Donkey Kong douchebag Billy Mitchell. Even though he has surpassed Mitchell's scores since the release of the film, Mitchell always seemed to be one barrel behind him, making Wiebe even more of an iconic hero to geeks, spazzes, dweebs and everyone else.

So at this year's E3 video game expo, the G4 Network gave Wiebe and his many fans the chance to reclaim the title for humble people everywhere by broadcasting his nine hour attempt live on television. It may sound like something that could make your eyes bleed no matter how close you were sitting to the TV, but it became hands down one of my 10 greatest sporting broadcasts of the year. And this is from a network that runs reruns of both COPS and Cheaters.

War! Huh, good God. What is it good for? Awesome comic satire! Say it again! - VIDEOS

The cast of The Chaser's War on Everything

The Chaser's War on Everything, a satiric hidden camera prank show from Australia, aims to be everything most shows of their ilk fail to achieve. It's satirical, unbiased in its stance against everything from commercialism to phony diplomacy, and more probing than a proctologist with banana hands.

This sparks a startling question: what the hell is a show this smart doing on the G4 Network?

The show found its way to the States earlier this year as part of the network's Duty Free TV block of foreign cult faves like Trigger Happy TV, Unbeatable Banzuke and Ninja Warrior. It's become one of the better shows on the all geek network, which either says worlds for the three-year-old show or doesn't say much for the rest of G4's original programming. I'll let you decide while reminding you this is the same network that once produced a game show where the first person to vomit lost. Even Fox wouldn't sink that low. Wait, are we talking about some kind of survival situation?
