0 comments

This week on the show, we are joined by Michael DiGiovanni of The Atomic Geeks and we talk about some of our favorite and most annoying tropes from movies and TV. We cover a bunch including wedding tropes, hospital security, car chases through fruit cart districts and getting back to see the family in the Old West. Nerd To-Dos feature the Fast and Furious, Dollhouse and more. Plus, we kill off a segment and replace it with an exciting new one.

Where in the world is Mark Linn Baker?

 

This week the fourth chair is taken once again by Matt Ringler from Schlock Treatment. Together we delve into the whereabouts of some of our favorite obscure celebrities. Ever wonder what happened to your friends from Renegade, The Last Dragon, Hercules The Legendary Journeys, or Perfect Strangers? No? Never? Well, the four of us did and with some perseverance/Internet creeping we were able to find out.  This week’s Nerd To Dos feature Disney marathons, YA fiction, Chicago style hot dog hossin’, and documenting the Superman museum.

CT is absent this week so Jeeg and Pax invite Shawn Robare and The Retroist over to talk about video arcades.  We talk about our earliest memories of arcades, we talk about some of our favorite games, we talk about games we actually beat and we even have a good discussion about Showbiz Pizza.  Nerd To-Dos include D&D, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and, of course, Jeeg's Real Life Problems™.

This week on the show we take on the task of burying time capsules so we welcome back a man from another time, Brian from Plaid Stallions. After we give our reasons for doing a time capsule, we each select a printed matter item, moving picture item, 3-D object, food item and an episode of our podcast to stick in the time capsule. Future generations have a lot to look forward to thanks to us. Nerd To-Dos feature vacations, books, Orphan Black and Starblazers.

This week we welcome Pax’s buddy Dr. Mike back to the fourth chair for another Star Trek movie drilldown. Somehow our serious analysis of Star Trek: The Motion Picture devolves to include Billy Zane, Chris Pine’s arm hair, giant sphincters, and talking like we’re in a wormhole. Just the sort of high critique you can only get from Nerd Lunch and the rest of the Internet. Our Nerd To Dos feature a book about the BMX movie Rad, the Shannara fantasy novels by Terry Brooks, more of Jeeg’s real life problems, and a Netflix cleanup project.

 

Nerd Lunch Podcast 137: The Nosh Show Joins Us for a Fast Food Draft

0 comments

The Fourth Chair is crowded this week as returning guest Dubba from episode 96 brings with him three of his friends. The ENTIRE crew from The Nosh Show joins us and we do a Fast Food Draft. The rules were simple, we each had to pick a burger/beef entree, chicken entree, side item, drink (something you can suck through a straw) and a wild card item from the QSR top 20 list of fast food and quick service restaurants. There was drama and intrigue and by the end we were all very hungry.



You can also hear the entire crew of Nerd Lunch on this week's episode (#32) of The Nosh Show.
