  • Episode 290 – 2018 Nerd Preview

    Han-Solo-Movie-New-Shot-Millennium-Falcon-RonThis week, we take a look forward at what is on the horizon for us nerds in early 2018. We look at movie releases both large (Avengers), not as large (Annihilation) and obscure but relevant to our interests (God’s not Dead 3????)  We also take a look at some television series including some intriguing new titles as well as new seasons of solid old favorites. We even toss in a few books and games. Also, did you hear there is a new Star Wars film coming out in May???


  • Episode 289 – The Punisher

    o1KF0ha4This week, we are joined by returning guest Mark Sherman, who is our resident Marvel comics expert. Mark is with us to talk about the Netflix Punisher series which is streaming for all (who have paid for Netflix)! We look at the way this series is stylistically different from the Netflix Marvel titles that have preceded it and talk about what we think works with this one. We also have a very interesting five question exchange!


  • Episode 258 – Luke Cage & Iron Fist

    Luke Cage & Iron FistThis week, we take a look at the latest original Marvel series on Netflix – Luke Cage and Iron Fist.  We are joined by our favorite Marvel expert, Mark Sherman.  Luke Cage, we all agree, isn’t perfect but is still pretty darn good.  Iron Fist, however, is a series about which none of us could find anything to recommend.  We compare the two shows and try to figure out what Luke Cage got right and what Iron Fist got so horribly wrong.  We do spoil some shit about both shows but take our word for it – Iron Fist was pretty much spoiled already.

  • Episode 214 – Stranger Things

    JmkrQA8yWe’ve been tackling some socially charged issues for the last few weeks.  That means it is time to return to a little good old fashioned geeking.  This week, we are going to geek all over the Netflix original series “Stranger Things!”  If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to go and do so before you listen because we will be spoiling the shit out of the show.  It’s only eight episodes long and you will find yourself wanting to binge the entire show.  So just get that done and come back to listen.  You’ll be happy you took our advice.  For the rest of you: THAT WAS SO AWESOME, RIGHT????


  • Episode 197 – Daredevil Season 2

    1990This week we take a look at Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.  We take a look at their interpretation of The Punisher, Elektra, and The Hand with our resident Marvel comics expert, Mark Sherman.  As with episodes of this nature, we spoil the shit out of the show so if you haven’t watched it yet, you should wait on this episode until you’ve had a chance to enjoy the twists and turns of the season on your own time.  We’ll be here when you get back.

    And hey – we just launched a Patreon campaign.  We’d like to be able to improve our recording equipment, our web platform and maybe even take some road trips to places like the creation museum.  You can help!  For just $2 a month, you can get our episodes early!  If you’ve been enjoying our podcast, please consider supporting us.

  • Episode 173 – Sense8

    6SQ0c119_400x400It’s time for another episode where the three of us talk about a geeky TV show we enjoy!  If you haven’t had a chance to watch the Netflix original series “Sense8” and you care about spoilers, you may want to wait before you listen to this episode.  We don’t spoil it too much because Tim hadn’t finished watching the series when we recorded this show.  He’s seen all of it now so you can post ALL THE SPOILERS in the comments if you want.  We also start reading listener answers to our new five questions!


  • Episode 149 – Daredevil

    daredevilThis week, we bring in Marvel expert Mark Sherman to talk about the Netflix Daredevil series.  We don’t know if you’ve seen it yet but we all really liked it and think you should give it a try.  If you haven’t seen it, please be aware this is one of those “spoil the shit out of everything” episodes.  You’ve been warned!

    Also, today is Tim’s 25th wedding anniversary.  We didn’t mention it on the episode or anything but it’s kind of important.  To him anyway.
