To put this in context, "Unscrewed" is a show on TechTV; TechTV is a cable channel about computers, the internet, how technology affects our lives...you get the idea.
They assume that their audience is tech-savvy and is heavily made up of geeks. (Similar to magic, but a different orientation. Although magicians discussing things on web boards probably intersect the two groups...)
Unscrewed specializes in having funny material that's "out there" such humorous looks at haunted houses and crop circles; fan-oriented events such as Renaissance Faires, Anime conventions or Burning Man; features on how to modify your computer to do things like keep your beer cold (find an old Peltier cooler); a contest called "Search Sperts" in which two people try to guess which of three terms scored higher in Google searches...in other words, it's centered in geek culture.
So Bananchek, being a psychic entertainer, fit in and was actually one of their more legit guests. He actually delivered on what he said he could do.
I find the show pretty damn funny. But then if you've seen my Remote Show Control page, you know I fit into both the tech group and the magic group.
