The Anti-Gravity Room was a weekly Canadian television program of the early- to mid-1990s, spotlighting comic books and video games, and hosted by Nick Scoullar and Phil Guerrero. It was produced by YTV in Canada, and was carried in the United States on the Sci-Fi Channel. It featured interviews with international comic creators, coverage of comic events, reviews of video games, and guest hosts such as Ben Stiller and Kevin Smith.

History[edit]

The Anti Gravity Room began as a call-in show on public-access television cable TV. Viewers would call in with questions on comic books and host Nick Scoullar would answer them. Word of the show got around and it was jointly picked up by Canada's YTV and America's Sci-Fi channel. The show was expanded into more of a news/information show that still covered comics, but also more literature, games, movies and music. Two more hosts were added: Phil Guerrero and Shashi Bhatia. Nick was based in New York, Phil in Toronto and Shashi in Los Angeles. Shashi would later be replaced by Jaimy Mahlon over the course of the series' four-year run. The final season of The Anti Gravity Room was only aired in Canada, as it seems that Sci-Fi decided to can the series early. Nick Scoullar is currently living in Belgium, where he has appeared in several TV commercials.
