23: Meet Gary Netflix

Yeehaw! pardners. There’s a Wild West theme to this one-year anniversary episode, as we recommend new Coen Brothers movie "Buster Scruggs" and the game "Red Dead Redemption 2". Other recommendations are Pratchett and Gaiman collaboration "Good Omens", Netflix’s "Apostle" and comedian-testing panel show "Taskmaster". And we choose some great nerdy gifts for Xmas, including a Geek cookbook, a giant lego Star Wars creature and an intriguing book about the weirdest comic book superheroes ever...


22: Excelsior, True Believers

Spider-Quiz, Spider-Quiz. Does whatever a Spider-Quiz does. Which in this case, means we talk about a peculiar Spider-Man comic book arc that distinctly rhymes with the word ‘Quiz’... Yep, our Film Buff or Bluff Quiz is back, and this time we try to out-fact each other on fake documentary synopses, 'Quantum Leap' episodes, 'Spider-Man' comics, and which films feature the famous ‘Willhelm Scream’. We also pay tribute to Stan Lee, and offer some thoughts and insights about his greatest...


21: 21st Birthday Spectacular

Our podcast can now legally consume alcohol in America! Three cheers to that! To celebrate, we go on a right old rant as Ian ‘takes one for the team’ and reviews the disappointing Venom (in a very amusing way). It’s not all doom and gloom, as we chat positively about Making a Murderer II, Bohemian Rhapsody, John Carpenter’s tour, and Bad Times at the El Royale, before going all ranty again about Dr. Who (we’re really not sure what Ian had for breakfast that morning). We then have a...


20: I Didn't See THAT Coming!

This episode has more twists than the spinning top from Inception ...if it was real...(answers on a postcard). We discuss our favourite movie twists, from the moments that made us jump out of our seat, to the moments that made us give a little appreciative nod. Inevitably, we also digress to talking about our least-favourite plot twists (here’s looking at you, M. Night Shyamalan). This is a fairly spoiler-filled chat, but we do our best to warn you before we make the big reveal. Mostly. In...


19: Tickling The Snitch

Time for another Nerdfest podcast - and "time" is the optimum word! Dan opens the show with his recommendation of a clock (it’s better than it sounds, trust us) before we get chatting about the new series of Dr Who in which we have a brand new Time Lord in the form of Jodie Whittaker. Our other recommendations include the BBC’s Bodyguard, Hotel Artemis, and a great documentary find of Ian’s, that looks behind the scenes of the lives of stand up comedians. We round off the show with Hazel’s...


18: Bit Of Rice, Bit Of Fish

We’ve been away for a bit but the nerds are officially back in town! In this show our film quiz ‘Buff or Bluff’ covers the world's most Batshit-crazy "Batman" stories, plus some “Rocky”, Firefly", and Stan Lee trivia you won’t have heard before (unless you read the internet...) and we find out Jon's not-so-secret Sushi recipe. For our recommendations we review "Disenchantment", "The Meg", "Hereditary", "BlacKKKlansman", and "Ant Man and the Wasp". And Hazel picks her Born Identity - ultimate...


17: Meatloaf Impossible

Its a “Mission Impossible” double-bill this episode, as we review the latest “Fallout”, while Jon fills his Shameful Gap by watching the original movie. In Buff Or Bluff, Dan tries to baffle us with origin stories, Jon befuddles us with Michael Jackson’s movie career, Hazel digs into the Indiana Jones archives and Peter asks which sci-fi author invented the waterbed. Recommendations this week include "Fear of Flight", "Pawn Stars", and giving "Fear The Walking Dead" another chance. Who will...


16: Can You Smell What The Nerds Are Cooking?

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE! Actually, yes it does. We're narcissistic nerds and need your love and validation 😉 We open the show with a flavoursome Film Buff or Bluff quiz - with Jon attempting to fool us with some ridiculous wrestling storylines, Hazel opens the box on Se7en, and Peter has some cunning James Bond clues. We've then got some new recommendations for you (which takes us off on a tangent about the much missed world of DVD extras). And then it's Peter's turn...


15: It's Bullet Time!

In an episode packed with the usual nerdy recommendations (including "Mortal Engines"- the most batshit-crazy book we’ve ever heard of) Jon fills a shameful gap with Arnie’s “True Lies”, and Dan chooses "Full Metal Jacket" from the year he was born. We also try to catch each other out with our Buff or Bluff quiz questions, involving "The Matrix", "Star Tours" and some very weird product placements, While Hazel's cats try their best to stop us.


14: There’s Something About A Wookiee Lapdance...

It's Bayhem in the studio today, as Nerd Court sees Jon take on Hazel fighting the case of "Armageddon". Will it be saved from Nerd Jail? We have a Shatner-influenced Film Buff or Film Bluff quiz, and it's the final round of Nerd of the Mastery Mind, as Dan finally gets his revenge on Hazel with his devious West Wing questions. Dan also reveals his thoughts on "Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom" and we round things off with a spoiler-heavy review of "Solo". Buckle up, baby!


13: Be A Hero

Some rules are made to be broken, aren't they? Welcome to episode 13 of our nerdy movie podcast, featuring the filling of Hazel's THIRD Shameful Gap- "Zombieland"! We also review "Deadpool 2", going into deep spoiler territory, and have a rather risqué Film Buff or Film Bluff quiz (but it has Jeff Goldblum facts in it, so it's well worth it.) Peter and Ian take on their sci fi-oriented specialist subjects in Nerd of the Mastery Mind and, of course, we have the latest and greatest Nerd...


12: Where Will You Be When It All Ends?

In this episode we've got a bumper round of quizzes! As well as an entertaining 'Film Buff or Film Bluff' we've got the first 2 rounds of our 'Nerds of the Mastery Mind' - so called because Hazel mispronounced it upon introducing it, and failed to recover. Our recommendations this week include a horror movie, a rival podcast (boo hiss!), a Netflix TV show, and a recommendation not to watch one of the worst things ever put to film (clue: there are icebergs involved...). And finally we round...


11: The Chris Hemsworth Tree

This bumper episode has 2 brand new features! As well as the usual good stuff like movie recommendations and our quiz ‘Film Buff or Film Bluff’, we debut our new game ‘What would Jared Leto do?’ For which we’ve we all come up with various ridiculous scenarios for Mr Leto to test out his "method" acting skills. We also take a look at the classic film Jaws and discuss which modern actors could potentially fill the giant shoes of Brody, Quint and Hooper. And finally, we give Dan a good old...


10: This Podcast Really Ties The Room Together

We made it to double figures! Wahey! In this episode we are all tasked to go on a 5 year space mission, and we must decide which movie, TV show, fictional astronaut and, inevitably, item of food, we would take with us. Expect the unexpected. Also, it's the return of our Shameful Gap feature, as one of us had never seen The Big Lebowski... get ready for some Dudaism! Our Film Buff or Film Bluff quiz takes us into the realms of Lord of the Rings offset antics, injuries on movie sets, Carry On...


9: Karen Gillan Rides a Rhino

We start discussing an Infinity War trailer, but get slightly sidetracked by various Karen Gillan fantasies. After that our 'Nerd Recommendations' feature brings reviews of Netflix's "Annihilation", "I, Tonya", "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" and, for some reason, a David Baddiel live show. Film Buff or Film Bluff is our regular quiz, which this time tests our knowledge on movie sound effects, Wonder Woman and, erm, porn parodies. And finally, Ian offers a review of the much loved TV series...


8: General Grievances

We get all Star Wars-y in this episode as Shameful Gap is back with a, erm, bang! Peter had never seen 'Revenge of the Sith' so sit back and listen as we discuss that film and the wider Star Wars universe (plus we get ourselves into an entertaining discussion on the worst CGI in movies). Before all that though is our Film Buff or Film Bluff quiz, which covers everything from Jaws, Top Gun, Alien and the musical Hamilton! We hope you enjoy listening to this podcast as much as we did making it...


7: Wakanda Forever!

Straight out of the cinema and into the pod booth! The team give their thoughts on Marvel's latest: "Black Panther". Our Film Buff Or Film Bluff quiz is back, taking us into discussions on Pixar, swearing in movies, the Batmobile and Chevy Chase. It's also the return of Shameful Gap as Dan watches "Evil Dead 2" for the very first time (and takes us into a discussion on our favourite horror movies). And finally, in Taking One For The Team' we have the misfortune of watching "The Cloverfield...


6: Someone's Going to Nerd Jail

This episode we debut our brand new feature: Nerd Court. This is where we take a hotly-debated topic, two of our nerds act as the defence and prosecution, and a nerd judge and jury decide its verdict. In the stocks this time is the TV show "Lost", defended by Dan, and prosecuted by Ian. Also this week we have lots of new recommendations for you, including reviews of "The Shape of Water" and "The Post". And we have another new feature called Taking One For The Team (snigger) - this is where...


5: Pop Chip Hotshot!

In this episode we have lots of nerdy recommendations from stuff we've seen recently (we mention a few spoilers for "The Last Jedi"). There is also a 'Harry Potter-off' (that sounds dirty, doesn't it?) between two of our biggest Potter nerds which involves a mini Trivial Pursuit challenge. We get slightly distracted by some Star Wars themed Pop Chips, hence the episode title, before concluding with an epic 'Film Buff or Film Bluff' quiz. Enjoy, Please get involved in our nerdy discussions on...


4: Nerd Harder

This episode brings back 'Shameful Gap', as Jon gives us his opinion of "Die Hard 2" upon watching it for the very first time (not one for the kids this...). Our Film Buff Or Film Bluff Quiz takes us into the world of James Cameron, Jason Donovan (yes really) and tortoises getting jiggy. Plus, we talk about the Dr Who Christmas Special, and Ian Mayor gives a great review of new Netflix TV show, "The Punisher".
