    Review: Nerd Dramedy 'Zero Charisma' Lives Up To Its Title

    Well, thank God for accurate titles. “Zero Charisma” takes the viewer into the world of hardcore roleplaying games, this one ruled over by a behemoth named Scott (Sam Eidson). A twentysomething living with his grandmother and barely earning a living wage at a local donut shop, nothing much seems to ...
