Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Tuesday night
The Wil Wheaton Project 10 p.m., Syfy
You may remember him from his role in the classic coming-of-age movie “Stand By Me.” Or perhaps you recall his work as Wesley Crusher on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Or maybe it’s his stint playing a nefarious version of himself as Sheldon Cooper’s arch-nemesis on “The Big Bang Theory” that makes Wil Wheaton’s name ring a bell. Whatever your connection, this new weekly series aims to introduce the real guy — actor, author, podcaster — via a comedic half-hour celebrating all things geek culture, including video games, movies, TV, viral videos, and more.
