About Greig Tansley

From Brisbane, Down Under, the only Aussie on the Steel Cage. I was a massive Hulk Hogan & nWo fan in the day and now continue to watch with the hopes that wrestling will once again reach the heights it is capable of. Also a huge comic book, movie & TV nerd, I bring you the Unfunny Nerd Tangent series here on the Steel Cage. And remember, there's no 'I' in team, but there is in Greig.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 32: Thor Ragnarok

Since it’s now in theatres worldwide and not just in Australia anymore, Greig & Adam welcome Tim & Jared to the Thor: Ragnarok spoiler discussions.

Everything from Thor to Hela to Loki and yes of course, Hulk, all get the UNT treatment, as well as some of our weirdest tangents yet, including:

  • How Korg stole the show,
  • Why James McAvoy is destined to captain the Starship Enterprise and for that matter, what’s with the weird way Riker uses chairs?
  • The crime of hiding Kat Dennings under thick overcoats,
  • The possible location of the Soul Infinity Stone,
  • And the true meaning of “Hulk Smash”.

So pour one out for Mjolnir, cut your hair and sit by the Surter fire as we present UNT 32: Thor Ragnarok.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), ‘New Doug’ Tim Agne (@timagne) and ‘A-Bomb’ Adam Hess (@ahess49).

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 31: Rick & Morty

For Episode 31 (C-137), Unfunny Nerd Tangent whipped out the portal gun and crossed the multiverse to bring you an entire show devoted to everyone’s favorite nihilistic, intellectual grandpa and his nervous little grandson: Rick & Morty.

Just like the wait between Seasons 2 & 3, we lingered entirely too long on the topic of the Mulan Szechuan Sauce debacle of 2017, but we did manage to definitively rank the Top 7 episodes of this groundbreaking animated show.

The Big Giant Head in the sky once said, “SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT.”

And we listened.

By the way, yes, we realize there’s a parallel universe where we didn’t do this show and instead covered… I don’t know, Futurama or something. But until then…

Get Schwifty with UNT 31: Rick & Morty.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), ‘Evil Morty’ Tim Agne (@timagne), ‘The Gazorpazorp from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), ‘Mayor of Reseda’ Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) and ‘Mr PoopyButthole’ Mateo Morales (@matt_morales).

Music by: Ryan Elder & Justin Roiland.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 30: Austin Powers

The original Austin Powers mmmmovie is 20 years old, which only leaves us with one question:

Do we make you UNTy, baby?

Episode 30 is upon us, and we’ve gone back to the swinging sixties, man. Well, and also the seventies, but the less said about Goldmember the better.

As we wedding-tackled the winning topic of our shagadelic listener poll and dived mole-first into the Austin Powers Trilogy, a number of groovy topics poked out at us like Fat Bastard’s turtle head.

Jared celebrates his time at Evil Medical School, Derek bemoans the sequels for ruining the Austin Powers legacy, Greig reveals the only type of wood that doesn’t float, and Tim explains why those Subway / Fat Bastard jokes haven’t aged well.

And of course we tried to answer the immortal question: Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Graham or Beyonce? (Hint: the real answer is Frau Farbissina.)

All this and more on our latest Unfunny Nerd Tangent: Austin Powers.

Hosted by: ‘Prime Minister of New Holland’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘Dr. Evil’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), ‘Fat Bastard’ Tim Agne (@timagne) and ‘International Mayor of Mystery’ Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman).

Music by Quincy Jones & Johnny Rivers.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 29: Twin Peaks

I’ve got good news. That show you like is going to come back in style.

David Lynch’s Twin Peaks makes its promised return decades after the murder of Laura Palmer launched the greatest cult TV show of all time. As fully deputized members of the Bookhouse Boys Blue Rose Task Force,  we’re investigating the original series, the movie Fire Walk with Me and Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Return.

We leave no rock untossed, no bottle unbroken, and in the end we will answer every question raised by Twin Peaks. With more questions. Weirder questions. And we don’t care what David Bowie says — we ARE gonna talk about Judy.

So pour yourself a damn fine cup of coffee, savor a slice of cherry pie and get ready to vomit creamed corn all over your car. This is your shiny gold shovel.

And make sure to stick around after the music to hear more random Twin Peaks tangents.

Hosted by: FBI Deputy Director Tim Agne (@timagne), who has criss-crossed this great land of ours countless times. He holds the map of it here, in his heart, next to the joyful memories of the carefree days he spent as a young boy, here in your beautiful town of Twin Peaks.

Featuring: ‘The Arm’ Adam Hess (@ahess49), Special Agent Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop, #RelationshipGoals) and ‘Audrey Horne’ Florence (@flaux).

Music by: Angelo Badalamenti and Glitbiter

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 28: The Defenders

4 out of 5 of these people are great …

After years of Marvel shows appearing on Netflix, finally, it all led to this.

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and their supporting characters all came together to star in The Defenders, what Netflix would describe as their ‘TV Avengers’.

Together as the worst incarnation of The Hand since that thing at the end of Cabin in the Woods, Greig, Tim and Jared give their opinions and review this latest ‘grim & gritty’ superhero escapade.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley aka ‘The Thumb’ (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘The Stranger’ Tim Agne aka ‘The Pinky’ (@timagne) and ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz aka ‘The Middle Finger’ (@superjew75).
