Episode 6: Someone's Going to Emergency, Someone's Going to Nerd Jail
This week 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 ultimate verdict. In the stocks this time is the TV show Lost, which is 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 finally, we have another new feature called 'Taking one for the team'...
Episode 5: Pop Chip Hotshot!
On this episode we have lots of nerdy recommendations for you based on stuff we've seen recently. 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, and please get involved in our nerdy discussions on Twitter @NerdfestUK
Episode 4: Nerd Harder
This week's episode brings back 'Shameful Gap' where Jon gives us his opinion of Die Hard 2 upon watching it for the very first time (not one for the kids this...). Our quiz 'Film Buff or Film Bluff' 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.
Episode 3: Happy Nerd Year! What a ridiculous way to catch a fish...
Hey nerds! For your listening pleasure this week we have our rundown of the best films to hit the silver screen in 2017 (hey that rhymes...), and a review of The Last Jedi that contains oodles amounts of behind the scenes info, courtesy of walking Star Wars-epidia Daniel Watkins. We also have a new Shameful Gap as Dan reviews John Carpenter's They Live (you know - the one with the chewing gum line), and preview some of the most interesting films to land in 2018.
Episode 2: Burgers and Dinosaurs
Welcome to episode 2! We discuss the new trailers for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom and Avengers Infinity War (delving deep into where these two universes might be heading), Ian Mayor has an extreeeeemly good burger analogy for the Marvel films, we record our intinial (3am!) reactions to The Last Jedi, and conclude with a brand new feature: Film Buff, or Film Buff which you can play along to at home! Enjoy!
