A look behind the curtain, if you will.
1. “From Cyberchase: We Finally Beat Hacker at His Game”
This is where it all started. I was naive — I thought it was possible, simple really. Little did I know the show I’d grown up watching was still going 14 years strong with numerous accolades and awards.
It’s all downhill from here.
2. “What We Can Learn from Cyberchase’s Constant Social Media Presence”
They make a gif for almost every Twitter post. I’ve got to give their Social Media Manager mad props.
Does this mean Gilbert Gottfried, voice of Digit, is a recognized DJ? What can’t he do?
3. “Fillmore Returns in Unprecedented Cyberchase Crossover Episode”
Was I grasping at straws? Maybe. Do I sincerely love Fillmore and would I happily settle for any cartoon crossover that involves my one true girl crush, Ingrid Third? Yes.
4. “If Cyberchase Is So Great, Why Haven’t I Become a Dirty Rich Mathematician by Now?”
Still throwing this question out into the void.
5. “PBS Confirms Cyberchase Heartthrob, Matt, Will Embrace Asexual Identity by Season 15”
Finally! Obviously clearing the way for Inez and Jackie.
Subtly has never been PBS’ strong suit. You go, Inez!
6. “Thanks to Science, We Now Know Whether Digit or Iago Would Win in a Brawl to the Death”
“fowl fisticuffs” by luciferchan
7. “Help! It’s Only April and I Need Something More to Live for Than the Cyberchase New Year’s Eve Reboot Eve Special”
I’m going through some stuff. Note: not considered an official TV special. Just special, and seasonally restrictive, to me.
8. “How I Fell in Love with Hacker While Writing an Article on Cyberchase”
This is where my journey comes to an end. I know myself well enough to realize when I’ve gone too deep. Do you?
