Unfunny Nerd Tangent 104: Cobra Kai Seasons 1 & 2

You asked for it, so here it is! It took a while, but FINALLY, Unfunny Nerd Tangent rates and reviews the nostalgic show that’s brought sentimental memories flooding back to even the most cynical karate-dojo masters – Seasons 1 & 2 of Cobra Kai.

Retro-sequels and long-time-reunions are tough to get right, especially in this day and age of the complete reboot (and rip-off). But as we all know, the original is usually the best, so when we sat down to discuss why Cobra Kai has taken the world by storm (for young and old), we were swamped with potential tangents to delve into.

What have Johnny and Daniel been up to these past 35 years? Does a new generation of ‘karate kids’ live up to the mantle of their forbearers?  And what happened to Mr. Miyagi?

Well, we flipped the script, dove into the back of the cement truck and cranked up the glam metal for this one to prove one way or another whether ‘Mercy is for the Weak’ or not.

Also Diora Baird.

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

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75) & ‘Blue’ Matt Morales (@matt_morales).

Music by: Poison & Joe Esposito.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 103: Bill & Ted Face the Music

Bill & Ted Face the Music be excellent to each otherWe were supposed to unite the world in nerddom. According to George Carlin, a podcast created by Tansley and Agne will save reality as we know it, uniting humanity across all time. If only we could get it done in 90 minutes.

Good thing we have a time machine, because we’re going all the way back to 1989 in San Dimas, California (which looks conspicuously like the suburbs of Phoenix) to celebrate Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Then we’re cheating death, giving melvins to evil robot us-es and definitely not covering KISS as we dial up Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey from 1991.

And finally, we drop the old phone booth in the nightmarish hellscape of 2020. After a most unprecedented 29-year hiatus, Bill S. Preston, Esq., and “Ted” Theodore Logan are wild dads ready to unite the world against a most heinous dearth of new movie releases.

Reuniting an almost-too-Bill Alex Winter and a maybe-not-Ted-enough Keanu Reeves, Bill & Ted Face the Music shows us the inseparable slacker icons still struggling to fulfill their musical destiny (in maybe a little bit of a Bogus Journey retcon). And as their fairytale marriages near a breaking point, the future calls with a hard deadline.

So lick the Cheetos dust off your fingers and hop into your time machine — whether it looks like a vintage phone booth or a sleek adult massager — because we’ve got a band to assemble and a song to not technically steal.

Te adoro, Guillermo.

Hosted by: ‘Waterloo’ Tim Agne (@timagne)

Featuring: ‘Station!’ Greig Tansley (@greigt13)

Music by: Big Pig and KISS.

Ted, what are you doing with that Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt? This is a history report, not a babe report. But Bill, Mon Milfma is a historical babe!

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 101: The Umbrella Academy Season 2

Oh my God, we’re back again… After crowning the first ever UNT champion in Episode 100, we return to ‘normal’ to avoid yet another Apocalypse with Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy.

This season brought a lot to the table, diving into some unexpected themes like mental health, LGBT issues, the JFK Assassination and of course, the Civil Rights Movement.

But was it also filled with superpowers stuff and time-travel nonsense? And did we go off on some weird tangents while discussing it? You bet your talking goldfish it/we did.

So, before you come down with a case of paradox psychosis, jump back into the UNT timeline with us as we review The Umbrella Academy: Season 2.

PS: We heard a rumor you rated us 5 stars. No? All right then, just listen anyway…

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

Featuring: ‘SuperFlu’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75) & ‘Number One’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Music by: Backstreet Boys & TLC.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 99: Independence Day

Hello and… Welcome to Earth! Since it’s the 4th of July, of course we gathered together one American, one Canadian and one Australian to sit down and talk about the 1996 blockbuster: Independence Day.

Through the magic of international time-zones and Morse code, we each setup a city-sized spacecraft of our own to dissect and analyse this mammoth movie that not only made Will Smith a genuine, big-time action-hero, but gave us the phenomenon forever known as –  PEAK GOLDBLUM.

24 years later, ID4 is still regarded as one of the best of its genre, and we endeavored to learn why, while one of us finally learned the actual name of one of its more prominent characters. Constance? Really?

So kick the tires and light the fires, Big Daddy – it’s Unfunny Nerd Tangent 99: Independence Day.

Also, is that Data from Star Trek? (Spoilers, it is.)

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

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75) & ‘Maple Syrup’ Mike DiPasquale (@maplesyrupdick).

Music by: R.E.M. & The Beatles.

You might not be allowed into NASA if you marry a stripper, but you will be approved immediately if you bring Mon Milfma! Kick the tires and light the fires with an Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt!

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 98: Rick & Morty Season 4

It’s been two years, but Rick & Morty is back!

Season 4 has already passed us by like Reggie in the night, but we were determined not to get off the Story Train until we spoke all about it (and pretend podcasts aren’t boring).

We broke through the meta continuity walls on this particular episode, filled with face-huggers, Beth clones, Jesus Christ, but most importantly… snake jazz.

So, restart from your latest save spot and check it out, because no one is shopping with this f**king virus!

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

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75), ‘Slut Dragon’ Tim Agne (@timagne), ‘Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), ‘Mayor of Reseda’ Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) & ‘My Real Name is Matthew’ Mateto Morales (@matt_morales).

Music by: Ryan Elder.

You won’t need a magic slut dragon if you follow the Death Crystals towards Mon Milfma! Break the rules of Meta Canon an Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt, and become your very own Story Lord!
