Lord of the Nerds is the tenth episode of the third season of Recess, which was first broadcast on November 6th, 1999.


When T.J. breaks his collarbone during a kickball game, he's forced to stay in "Room 51": a room of nerds - colloquially referred to as the Pale Kids - who chose to stay inside during recess.



  • The Pale Kids all make their first appearances in this episode.
  • This episode was paired up with "The Shiner," making it an instance where in two episodes in a row, T.J. was injured somehow.
  • The game played by the Pale Kids, Daggers & Dragons, is a parody of the popular role-playing game (often just referred to as an RPG), Dungeons & Dragons.
  • This episode was paired up with "That Stinking Feeling" outside the US.
  • This is one of only six episodes of the television show Recess that were directed by both Sheetz and Parkins, the two prominent directors of the series.
