Unfunny Nerd Tangent 45: Batman – Gotham by Gaslight / Justice League – The Flashpoint Paradox

What do Tim and Greig do when Jared and the rest of the Steel Cage crew head to NOLA for Wrestlemania? Well, when their force projection powers wear off, they head back into the Dad Cave and start talking (at length) about Batman cartoons.

This time, it’s Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

Our intrepid BatDads delve into a variety of topics, including Bruce Timm’s affinity for animated ladies, why Tim should watch Supernatural on the CW, and the correct way to enter a Lazarus Pit.

Just like diamonds, BatDads are forever, so while we wait for Thanos and the Infinity War to destroy everything we hold dear, step into an alternate, unfunny reality and check out UNT: 45.

Hosted by: ‘Cyrus Gold’  Tim Agne (@timagne).

And featuring: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)

Music by: Judas Priest & Randy Randolph.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 44: Ready Player One

Steven Spielberg’s new movie, Ready Player One, based on the Ernest Cline novel of the same name, has hit the box office, and as such, our intrepid clan of gUNTers has recruited the greatest Easter Egg hunting team of all time.

We welcome back Yoshi from YoshiCast and the Transmission Podcast, as well as newcomer and (somehow) “fan” of the show, Emily McIntosh from KGSR Austin.

We certainly earned our name on this one, where as well as the merits of the film and comparisons to the book, we dived down the tangential rabbit hole to find ourselves in a world of lactation cookies. Ask Tim.

Jared finds his hill to die on, we make the Shining / Transformers connection, Yoshi admonishes Greig’s lack of D&D knowledge, and we pondered the pros-and-cons of F-bombs in PG-13 films.

UNT 44 was a fun show to record, so slip on your immersive visor, squeeze into your HAPTIC suit and dive into Ready Player One.

Maybe just leave the cod piece at home…

Hosted by: ‘Gregarious Games’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)

Featuring: ‘IlliterateTim Agne (@timagne), ‘Iron Giant’ Jared Robinovitz (@Superjew75) & ‘Tomb of Horrors’ Yoshi (@yousephtanha).

Special Guest: ‘2112’ Emily McIntosh (@emilymci) from KGSR Austin.

Music by Van Halen & Rush.

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.
