The folks in Mountain View are ready to follow up YouTube's Comedy Week, and their leaning on the troves of nerdy content filling their servers to kick off Geek Week. Come August 4th, the site will spotlight more than 100 channels using highlights and new videos with the help of Nerdist in the US and Channel Flip across the pond. Six themed days including topics from gaming to superheroes will each be hosted by an American and UK channel, with Geek and Sundry, Machinima and Guinness World Records being a few among them. In addition to the fresh clips, Schmidt and Co. will be hiding easter eggs throughout the week, and will give users the chance to collect badges when they spot 'em. Over in the UK, early '90s kids show Knightmare, famed for its sketchy CG effects and sets, will return for a very welcome limited run. And if that wasn't all enough, an exclusive Thor: The Dark World trailer is slated to arrive through the event next Wednesday. If you're hankering for some extra nerdery in your diet, hit the bordering source link to stay in the loop for Geek Week.
