Nerd Lunch Podcast 59: Halloween Specials


To celebrate the season Pax and Jeeg call in our Halloween experts, Shawn from Branded in the 80s and Jay from The Sexy Armpit, to discuss two LEGENDARY Halloween TV specials. Up first is the 1976 Paul Lynde Halloween Special with 70s guest stars aplenty including Tim Conway, Florence Henderson, and KISS. You can find it on YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, and DVD.


Then we tackle 1986's The Worst Witch starring Fairuza Balk and featuring gonzo performances by The Facts of Life's Charlotte Rae and Tim Curry. It is also available on YouTube (in multiple parts) and DVD.


This week's Nerd To-Dos include a screening of some classic Universal monster movies, a quest for episodes of CHiPs, some fawning over Emma Watson, and Bond movie watching.

This has to be my favorite episode yet. I love The Worst Witch. I love Fairuza Balk, Tim Curry and pretty much everything about this special, terrible special effects included.

And wow guys, Thunder in Paradise? I thought I was the only one who remembers that show and there you go dropping it as a casual reference. Impressed.

If you think this episode was good, we have a ninja-themed episode coming up with an amazing fourth chair that I think you'll love!
