Mostly highlighting Jonathan's journey throughout the US visiting all sorts of from nerdy subcultures, it's clear that he's putting way too much content in the movie and as a consequence can only touch upon it very superficially. Many topics are only discussed for about half a minute and then he already moves on. His documentary is sadly exactly like the MTV consumer culture he despises and from which nerds try to escape. On top of this, Jonathan displays a rather average, mediocre sense of humor and keeps nagging about his pet peeve, capitalism, without ever disclosing why he has such a problem with it and he never bothers to come up with a remotely interesting alternative. It would have been better to make a series to give each but also to cut out some less relevant topics which have absolutely nothing to do with nerd or counter culture. You get some nice music choices and some nice nerd trivia but it's not enough to make it worth the watch.
