Episode 081.5: He Can Teach ‘Em How To Play Bowling

Scooby-Doo-and-Guess-WhoIn this extra special bonus .5 episode, we discuss in depth the debut of the 1st Scooby-Doo series of The Nerd Blitz age, Scooby-Doo And Guess Who, and it’s special guest, NBA star Chris Paul!

One of us doesn’t understand bowling, how to talk about it, or even how to describe it as Fitz fights back and Doom takes an odd joy in him doing so, also we .

We talk about the Guess Who pilot episode in detail, discuss who else we’d love to see the Mystery Incorporated gang cross paths with, and which of the known episodes we are most excited about seeing in this short but special episode of the most consistent podcast you’ve never heard of that features 70+ years of combined failure!

Episode 081: That’s A Nerd A$$hole

pet_sematary_zelda_hero

In this episode, Game Of Thrones is nearing it’s end and Fitz is all a-scared of what could happen to all the thrones made of games, the talk about a sparkly new Batman as well…oh, and Doom is a huge dick about spoilers!

Doom brings a book based Pimp Spot that leads us down a rabbit hole of recent reads and spurs on a 10 minute rant about 1 of the most influential writers of the 20th century and his most famous works…then continues that rant into bitching about superhero casting and the internet…can you guess which one of them is doing the ranting?

After 3 years, Fitz has finally turned into a shill, the new version of Pet Semetary is broken down and compared to the original, and then we play Wizard Magazine staff yet again and dream cast the MCU’s Fantastic Four…and it goes…let’s just say it happens, also a tease of an upcoming segment!

Scooby-Doo And Guess Who? Premieres Next Week!

Just announced through IGN, Scooby-Doo And Guess Who? premieres in exactly 1 week from today, June 27th, on Boomerang!
New episodes will air weekly after that.
They posted the trailer on their YouTube channel, go watch it HERE and let us know what you think of it!

Personally, I am so in.
The New Scooby-Doo Movies is one of my top 3 favorite Scooby shows, and this is basically a revival of that.
So this looks to be EXACTLY what I want from a Scooby-Doo show.
And with guest stars like Wanda Sykes & Weird Al (who were not part of that initial announcement) I’m even more excited!

I’m hoping there’s some presence at San Diego Comic-Con next month to further get the word out about what looks to be an amazing new chapter in this beloved 50 year old franchise!

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!

TNB Book Club 5.02: Role Model

2038443387

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.

We dissect the detail that only a true fan of all things nerd could understand and nail, monsters and their rules are debated, jokes are made, and fun is had, gang.

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!
