Unfunny Nerd Tangent 43: The Tick

You know, evil comes in many forms, be it a man-eating cow or a pair of surly co-hosts. But when Amazon re-reboots the finest superhero parody the ’90s had to offer, a true hero answers the call. Even when that call is an app notification.

You can’t dismiss a notification from destiny, and she’s blowing up Tim’s phone at all hours. “U up?” Oh he’s up, destiny, and he’s 100 percent down to podcast. Muscle emoji!

While dragging Jared and Greig behind him like two sacks of laundry, Tim charges antennae-first into all things The Tick — from neato comics to the swell cartoon to the short-lived Patrick Warburton series and the impressive career of creator Ben Edlund. We fight over the influence of Watchmen, honor an ancient Chinese joke and — believe it or not — beat the dead horse of Suicide Squad.

So gaze at your reflection in the nearest spoon and see if you’re nigh invulnerable enough to endure this sad parody of a pop-culture podcast. Infinity War will be here before you know it.

Hosted by ‘The’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring ‘The Human Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13) and ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75).

Music by Bastille, Chris Bacon & Doug Katsaros.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 42: Hamilton


How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman grow up to be the subject of our podcast? Turns out we’ve all got a soft spot for musical theater (even Jared).

So many of our contributors caught Hamilton during its month long run in Tempe, Ariz., that we could not throw away our shot to rap about history, choreography, set design, sky-high ticket prices and all our favorite Broadway shows (and one nerdtacular off-Broadway show). You’ll even find out which of us starred in musicals in high school.

And if you think this all-singing, all-dancing episode was hot, just you wait till we see SpongeBob Squarepants: The Musical.

Hosted by “the General” Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring: “Hot Pants” Mateo Morales (@mattmorales), “SuperJew” Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), “Founding Father” Josh Schlag (@schlizzag / @thesteelcage) and “Secretary of Snacking” Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman).

Music by The Lonely Island and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 41: Black Panther

Black Panther is a critical and financial hit, crushing the box office with record after record and helping to create a cultural movement in Hollywood. But what did we think of it?

To answer that, we welcomed back Episode 31’s Mateo Morales and newcomer, Austin Carthell to help discuss, dissect and delineate all things from the land of Wakanda.

But be warned, even the most powerful vibranium suits couldn’t protect us from our tangential selves on this one, which included Green Lantern casting rumours, the Crocodile Dundee Hoax, the state of MCU villains and much, much more…

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

Featuring: ‘Gorilla King’ Tim Agne (@timagne), ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), Mateo Morales (@mattmorales) & ‘King’ Austin Carthell (@austincarthell).

Music by: Ludwig Göransson.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 40: Batman – The Dark Knight Returns

Was our first Batdads: The Animated Podcast too family-friendly for you? Well, get ready for the dark, gritty reboot as we take apart the ambitious animated adaptation of possibly the most influential Batman story ever told: Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. This isn’t a podcast — it’s an operating table.

We mine TDKR for parenting advice, decide which Robocop lines we want Batman to say, break down the best Joker laughs and thoroughly examine Frank Miller’s favorite place to draw swastikas. Sorry about that last one.

Hosted by ‘Definitely see Black Panther’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring ‘Drop Bear Man’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13) and ‘Long Halloween in Reseda’ Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman).

Music by: Christopher Drake.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 39: Jumanji

Can you hear drums?

We did. So much so, we took a detour from our scheduled programming to focus our avatars on The Rock’s smash-hit re-invigoration of the Jumanji franchise.

Of course, that meant we had to begin with the original Robin Williams classic, before diving into the new film with our sexy combat-dance moves.

As always, our team of intrepid UNT explorers found themselves veering off course into such topics as the merits of DC’s Black Adam character, a potential Twins remake, whether or not Jack Black would have ever been a Green Lantern and hey… is that Nebula?

But never fear brave adventurers, as promised we managed to bring you our latest episode dedicated to all things Jumanji.

Oh, but make sure you avoid the cake…

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

Featuring: Tim Agne (@timagne) & ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75).

Music by: Big Mountain & GNR.
