rsz_burn_notice

In this episode, the fellas are back with stunning resolutions to shocking cliffhangers…kinda…and also, diorama building commences!

Fitz has a muddy whale as he tells tales of selling bits of a cross and a bat in some twisted sort of boss ass ape crazed con game with a taxi guy or two.

Then Doom FINALLY gets to talk about some good ol’ Burn Notice as he runs down the ENTIRE SIXTH SEASON, and that’s just the first 40 minutes or so of the show, so strap in for an action packed episode of your favorite nobodies.

First Look: TNB Commentaries The DCCU Album Art!

For nearly 2 years now (to be honest, it may actually be longer at this point) we have threatened to watch the 1st 2 installments of the recent attempt at a DC Cinematic Universe.
Well, dear listeners, your wait is nearly at an end!

We have finally completed recording on this album and you, our lovely and long suffering listeners, are in for a treat.
With over 6 hours of total content, The Nerd Blitz Commentaries: The DCCU Album is our longest Bandcamp album yet.

Check out our album art above.
The picture is a concept I came up with, but was elevated by @gigiamk30 (who snapped the pic) and good ol @Fitzman73 (who did the editing and photoshopping).

We are currently editing the BVS episode and the intro together, and it shouldn’t take too much longer.
We’re looking to release it on our Bandcamp Page at some point around mid-February to early-March, and we hope you’ll all take the time to check out the intro and consider buying it when it drops.

Let us know what you think of the album art and if you are excited for the album to finally be released!

Welcome back to The Nerd Blitz Book Club! In this 2nd & final installment of a 2 part series, we are celebrating the recently released Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. short story collection, Services Rendered, by reading and discussing the final 3 chapters of the short story Role Model written by Kevin J. Anderson.

So grab a copy of this story, available in the Working Stiff short story collection, and join us in the Unnatural Quarter for this fun read.

Also, right near the top, we were lucky enough to get an interview with the man himself, so enjoy Doom’s near hour long chat with Kevin J. Anderson!

Scooby-Doo And Guess Who? Set To Debut

Variety reports that the next Scooby-Doo series is set to premiere on Boomerang sometime in 2019!

And, as previously speculated and confirmed by Grey Griffin, it will indeed be a sort of reboot of The New Scooby-Doo Movies with each episode featuring guest stars.

The Variety piece reads: “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”: In the series from Warner Bros. Animation, the Mystery Inc. gang faces some of their toughest mysteries yet. To crack the cases, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo will join forces with some of the biggest names in celebrity and pop culture — including NBA star Chris Paul; recording artists Halsey and Sia; Ricky Gervais, Kenan Thompson, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Mark Hamill, and Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White, reprising his iconic role), as well as characters like Wonder Woman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and The Flash. Chris Bailey (“Kim Possible”) serves as producer with Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) as executive producer.

Personally, I’m super excited for this!
I just hope they pick a good style for the models and animation.
A couple of those guest stars are a bit surpising though (Ricky Gervais? Urkel?), but it does fit into the Scooby Movies/Team-Up vibe, so I’m not worried.
Let us know what you think in the comments!
