I love Kevin Smith. In a totally hetero way. Sure, he may not make the best movies, but that is beside the point. He made Clerks, goddammit. That more than makes up for Jersey Girl.
Anyway, Smith has a new reality show, premiering on AMC February 12th, right after the return of The Walking Dead. Kev must have made a deal with the devil to get that time slot. Or, he sucked a huge… nevermind. Gotta keep it clean here.
Instead of this show being a show focusing on his life (which would be awesome, I must say), it will be based in his comic book store, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, in Red Bank, New Jersey. It will be a look at what goes on in your favorite comic book store, behind the scenes, and the people who work at said stores.
It was originally titled Secret Stash, but it has since been renamed Comic Book Men.
If the shop looks familiar to you, that’s because it was featured in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Don’t believe me? Go watch it. The part where Jay and Silent Bob are talking to Brodie about the movie rights to Bluntman and Chronic being sold, and Jay and Silent Bob find out they are entitled to a “mother f*****g movie check.”
I’m such a Kevin Smith nerd. Hell, I even own a copy of Cop Out. Autographed, no less.
Actually, don’t go watch Jay and Silent Bob yet. I’ll be a nice nerd and do the work for you:
Now you can go watch the movie.
Until next time..
