In this episode, we lay back and relax, early in the morning for the first time in almost a half decade maybe, and talk how we do about all that nerd shit what we like and you like hearing us do talkin’ about.
First up on the docket, we hit up the book shelves and discuss what we’re currently reading, which includes a taste of Science Fiction, classic fantasy, and the plans one of us has for a slew of book reviews that have already happened nearly a month ago by the time you hear this.
Then we try to get deep on the first Mandalorian trailer, while dodging guests and depressing topics, so that means speculation is flying in your ear holes like a wrecked space shit as we hurdle across space and time cherry picking comic books for future profit or something…sorry, I got comfy and kinda lost track of the convo at some point…anywhooo, enjoy a new ep of us being what we always are, nerdy bastards!
Hey gang, welcome back to The Nerd Blitz Book Club!
In this 7th episode of a 9 episode series, we crack open a book we have been wanting to dive into for a long time, the Sherlock Holmes meets H.P. Lovecraft pastiche short story collection, Shadows Over Baker Street.
This week sees us discussing and dissecting the next 2 entries in this book, edited by Michael Reaves and John Pelan, The Drowned Geologist & A Case Of Insomnia which were written by Caitlin R. Keirnan & John P. Vourlis respectively.
So find yourself a copy of this gathering of stories and read along with us cause the game is most certainly afoot as the darkest of dark clouds settles in over the world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and things get spooky at 221B Baker Street, gang.
Also, a special thank you goes to @gigiamk30 for providing this book and making this entire 6th series of The Nerd Blitz Book Club possible.
Please turn off your cellphones and join us in stalking horny teenagers wherever they may hump and a traumatized lady that that can’t catch a break to save a single damn life, be it her own, her child’s, or her granddaughter’s!
For our 50th Commentary, we creep our way back to 2018 Haddenfield for this hybrid sequel & reboot starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, & Will Patton as they chase down the monstrous podcast and gas station killer we all know and fear.
Shockingly, Doom is in a pissy petty mood and that is thrown in your faces from the jump, but also we put on a hell of a ball breaking show as Fitz swings for the fences and connects with the grandest of slams, call backs are made, laughs are had, and we just bask in the glory that is this awesomely bad ass movie, so buckle up for a a fun and chunky ep, gang!
Please turn off your cellphones and lets all roll a doobie, chill out, relax, and read from this sweet ass book that was inked in blood and bound in human flesh that may or may not have been found 30 some odd years ago in a cabin in the woods…
For our 49th Commentary, we jump in the Oldsmobile Delta 88 classic and drive that sweet chunk of machinery back to Halloween 2015 for the return of the King, Bruce Campbell, to his most Iconic role, and he brings Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Jill Marie Jones, and Lucy Lawless along for the ride!
Doom brings an update on something that he started yammering about last year in the Commentaries and will expand upon in Ep 104 of the main show, and then we all buckle up as the good sir Fitz gets to experience the gloriousness that is this series that was ended far too soon, so fire up your netted flix or whip out your discs cause shit is about to get…Groovy!
In this episode, we get unexpectedly personal and unveil what happens before the pitter patter of little feet go and suck up all of the free time one has to spend on all that fun and creatively fulfilling shit of youth as Fitz takes us on a journey into the deep dark depths of his pre-parental archives!
But before that, Doom kicks off what became our Whedon verse special by taking the time to say goodbye to a long running and much beloved (by him at least) show as Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes its final bow on ABC in a season that can only be described as insane amounts of fun, he gives a mostly spoiler free review and teases some of the best moments.
We teased it in ep 100, we kicked the can down the road a bit in ep 101, but we finally dust off an old hard drive and take a peek at the Buffy The Vampire Slayer RPG spin-off that the good sir Fitz started working on over a decade and a half ago, listen as he brings character backstory, town history, “episode descriptions”, and there may just be more dark secrets uncovered as the rock & roll train known as The Nerd Blitz continues runnin’ right off the tracks!
