Unfunny Nerd Tangent 57: Saga

Hey nerds, are you looking for your next obsession, something on the level of Game of ThronesHarry Potter, or even Star Wars? Pause the Netflix, head to your local comic-book shop and pick up Saga. This epic sci-fi fantasy from writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Fiona Staples has everything — sex, drugs, war, weird aliens, more sex, friendship, betrayal, rocketships, even more sex, cool weapons, magic, talking animals, gut-wrenching death and (as DATES viewers know) #robotdicks.

Best of all, it manages to make parenting look downright badass. That’s why our unlikely space team of killers-turned-dads has binged all 54 issues to bring you a light-on-spoilers introduction with everything you need to know about the Saga universe.

From there, we take a deep look at each of the characters as we cast our dream Saga TV series. And finally, (here’s the SPOILER WARNING!) we cry it out as we discuss the story thus far and the devastating latest issue as the series goes on a yearlong hiatus.

So pop a tab of fadeaway, strap on your crash helm and hurl yourself into a timesuck as we blast off on our first-ever episode dedicated solely to a comic book.

Hosted by: ‘Attack of the Ram-Horned Space Dad’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring: ‘Prince Boomerang Hand IV’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Special performance by Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) as Marko, and introducing Lilly Montilla as Hazel.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 56: Disenchantment

Has Matt Groening still got it? The Simpsons was an instant classic, while Futurama blew our minds and broke our hearts. But somehow, getting our friends to watch the animated Netflix series Disenchantment is harder than dragging a one-eyed lady giant to a royal ball.

Maybe it’s the tired, status-quo structure of the season’s middle episodes. Maybe the characters and jokes just aren’t edgy enough. Maybe King Zøg reminds us a little too much of our friend Jared.

In this series, Jared has hair and is married to Melania Trump.

Hold on a second, Leave-o. This episode has a spoiler-free section where we’ll tell you why it pays to stick with Disenchantment for the full 10-episode season. And then we’ll make some Kevin Smith references and — oh, who are we kidding? None of this turned out the way we wanted. Look at us, two grown men talking about cartoons on the internet. Does anything even matter anymore?

Disenchantment!

Hosted by: ‘The Three-Eyed Wizard’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring: ‘The Royal Tit’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Music by Mark Mothersbaugh and Marcy Playground.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 55: Westworld Season 2

We didn’t forget. It just took us a while to wrap our minds around Westworld season 2. And to be honest, we’re still not sure we understood everything. After all, we might already be inside the thing, right?

While Tim gushed over yet another Veronica Mars connection (despite not actually having seen the pivotal flash-forward scene), the rest of us pondered the philosophical nature of life, souls, clones and resurrections, tried our best to pronounce ‘Akecheta’, found way too many comparisons to The Matrix and Minority Report, and attempted to make sense of the show’s numerous, confusing-yet-enthralling use of timelines.

We think we did pretty well, just don’t test us for fidelity.

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

Featuring: ‘Superjew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), ‘Dad in Black’ Tim Agne (@timagne) and ‘Official Chef-UNT’ Craig D’Cruze (@WWECHEF).

Music by Ramin Djawadi.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 54: GLOW Season 2

Get out your glitter, your leg-warmers and your Canadian bacon, as we ring the bell on another round of the Netflix series, GLOW.

While Greig battles what might technically be pneumonia, the rest of our illustrious international panel discuss the trials and tribulations of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

Debbie, Sam, Ruth, Bash and even the new Junkchain earn a mention; we discuss the relevance of certain PSAs, explain a plot point to younger viewers and even bring up what might possibly be the worst show to ever appear on Australian television.

We’re still waiting for Josh to take us all to Vegas, but until then, do your best to no-sell our latest offering: Studio 54… sorry, Episode 54 of Unfunny Nerd Tangent.

Note: No drop-bears or wolverines were harmed during the making of this episode. Just Sprung’s feelings…

Hosted by: ‘Mt. Kosciusko’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘Superjew’ Jared Robinovitz (@superjew75), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage), ‘Glitbiter’ Flo (@Glitbiter) and ‘Commonwealth Bash’ Craig D’Cruze (@WWECHEF).

Special Appearance by: Sprung (@jasprung).

Music by Michael Sembello & Starship

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 53: Ant-Man & The Wasp

 

Get ready for some pint-sized action and small-time laughs as we discuss Ant-Man & the Wasp.

Tim fantasises about that moment from Batman Returns (it’s not what you think – it’s worse), Jared continues his streak of things he hasn’t seen, we learn that Greig’s Luis impression is oddly similar to his Korg and Bryan… well, Bryan was there too.

We recorded this one in our miniaturised suitcase podcast studio, added wings and blasters to our super suits and ‘marvelled’ over the 20th, yes 20th movie in the MCU – Ant-Man & the Wasp.

And yes, we’ll all be there opening weekend for Bumblebee.

Sigh…

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

Featuring: ‘Mistletoe’ Tim Agne (@timagne) and ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@Superjew75).

Special Guest Lurker: ‘Extreme Rules – Pipebomb’ Bryan Gregston (@guitarsalad).

Music by: Adam Ant & W.A.S.P.
