UNT 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...


UNT 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...


UNT 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...


UNT 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...


UNT 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...


UNT 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...


UNT 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,...


UNT 38: Bright

Critics and viewers are torn on this one. But weren’t. Not really. With polarising reviews, Netflix’s newest film has nevertheless succeeded in being one of the most watched movies in streaming service history. But is it any good? We attempted to answer that and many other questions on Episode 38, when we decided to reject the Dark Lord and watch the new movie Bright, starring everybody’s favourite Jersey Girl cameo: Will Smith. Oh, and Aussie Joel Edgerton is in this too, but if you’re...


UNT: 37 Kevin Smith

UNT kicks off the New Year in style with Episode 37. That's right, 37... in a row. Since almost every one of our previous episodes has in some way managed to reference Kevin Smith, we thought it was about time we dedicated an entire show (on purpose) to the man behind Silent Bob. And this one is almost as long as those Hobbit movies about walking. Yoshi returns from the Transmissions Podcast and we welcome friend of the show and Greig's hetero life mate, Steve to join our all round...


UNT 36: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Please hold for the Unfunny Nerd Tangent. We're a little tied up right now � getting fifty shades of Snoke in the supreme leader's red room. No, we can't put on a towel or something. Our nerd tangent began with The Force Awakens, plunged into a warm BACTA tank with Rogue One, and now we're milking the engorged space-walrus teat of Episode VIII. We won't name names, Greig, but somebody on the podcast is one of those fake fans who didn't think this movie was the greatest thing since sliced...


UNT 35: The Disaster Artist

Has everybody betray you? Are you fed up with this worl? It's no problem. James Franco has big Hollywood movie for you. In The Disaster Artist, Franco transforms into Tommy Wiseau, the enigmatic Frankenstein (or maybe vampire) behind The Room — the best worst movie ever made. How is this unlikely biopic doing with critics? Oh, high marks (you can blame Bryan for that one). So put on your tux, grab your favorite football, pour yourself a Scotchka and lube up your belly button because we're...


UNT 34: Justice League

UNT 33: Stranger Things 2

In a sequel to our long past Episode 5, the team gets together to revisit Hawkins, Indiana and triple the Eleven with UNT 33 and our review of Stranger Things 2. WONDER about Darrell’s theory that Billy could be THAT Billy from Twin Peaks. REVEL at Tim’s knowledge of Sean Astin’s onscreen survival rate - #RudyLives. PONDER Greig’s ideas for shoehorning Ted McGinley into the Hawkins Sherriff’s Department. And LAUGH as Jared gets the greatest iTunes review in the history of podcasts. All...


UNT 32: Thor: Ragnarok

Since it’s now in theatres worldwide and not just in Australia anymore, Greig & Adam welcome Tim & Jared to the Thor: Ragnarok spoiler discussions. Everything from Thor to Hela to Loki and yes of course, Hulk, all get the UNT treatment, as well as some of our weirdest tangents yet, including: - How Korg stole the show, - Why James McAvoy is destined to captain the Starship Enterprise and for that matter, what’s with the weird way Riker uses chairs? - The crime of hiding Kat Dennings under...


UNT 31: Rick & Morty

For Episode 31 (C-137), Unfunny Nerd Tangent whipped out the portal gun and crossed the multiverse to bring you an entire show devoted to everyone’s favorite nihilistic, intellectual grandpa and his nervous little grandson: Rick & Morty. Just like the wait between Seasons 2 & 3, we lingered entirely too long on the topic of the Mulan Szechuan Sauce debacle of 2017, but we did manage to definitively rank the Top 7 episodes of this groundbreaking animated show. The Big Giant Head in the sky...


UNT 30: Austin Powers

The original Austin Powers mmmmovie is 20 years old, which only leaves us with one question: Do we make you UNTy, baby? Episode 30 is upon us, and we've gone back to the swinging sixties, man. Well, and also the seventies, but the less said about Goldmember the better. As we wedding-tackled the winning topic of our shagadelic listener poll and dived mole-first into the Austin Powers Trilogy, a number of groovy topics poked out at us like Fat Bastard’s turtle head. Jared celebrates his time...


UNT 29: Twin Peaks

I've got good news. That show you like is going to come back in style. David Lynch's Twin Peaks makes its promised return decades after the murder of Laura Palmer launched the greatest cult TV show of all time. As fully deputized members of the Bookhouse Boys Blue Rose Task Force, we're investigating the original series, the movie Fire Walk with Me and Showtime's Twin Peaks: The Return. We leave no rock untossed, no bottle unbroken, and in the end we will answer every question raised by...


UNT 28: The Defenders

After years of Marvel shows appearing on Netflix, finally, it all led to this. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and their supporting characters all came together to star in The Defenders, what Netflix would describe as their ‘TV Avengers’. Together as the worst incarnation of The Hand since that thing at the end of Cabin in the Woods, Greig, Tim and Jared give their opinions and review this latest ‘grim & gritty’ superhero escapade. Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig...


UNT 27 Batman & Harley Quinn / Mask of the Phantasm

How do you cope when all your friends ditch you for BOLA? If you're Tim and Greig, you pick up the animated classic Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and, just for the heck of it, the all-new Batman and Harley Quinn. It's Batdads: The Animated Podcast. Also in this episode, Greig tells us about the birds and the bees (and the yams) of Swamp Thing, and Tim reveals how much he loves the worst episode of Batman: The Animated Series. Hosted by 'Smells like Discipline' Tim Agne (@timagne). Featuring...


UNT 26: Planet Of The Apes

“Get your stinkin’ paws off me, you damn unfunny nerds!” Right, so that’s how it would have gone had we been in charge of the reboot. Thankfully, we weren’t and The Planet of the Apes Trilogy has grown from leaps to bounds (and that’s just between treetops) to culminate in a near-perfect trilogy not many predicted. Andy Serkis and his performance as Caesar the Ape has captured the hearts of many filmgoers in recent years, and we here at Unfunny Nerd Tangent are no exception. Along with...
