Episode 297 :: The Orville Vs. Star Trek: Discovery

This season of television you've got choices when deciding where to boldly go. Option A: Seth MacFarlane's The Orville; a Galaxy Quest-style, Roddenberry-fueled sci-fi comedy. Option B: Star Trek: Discovery; a darker slice of Trek set in the new movie continuity. Option C: BOTH?! Join Cap, boR, Trench, and Doug as we weigh the pros and cons of both series.

Nerdy Show Interview: Careless Juja and the World Tour That Wasn't

VGM is a strange genre. For starters, it's a genre consisting almost exclusively of covering other people's music - but the difference between a random band covering a random song and Video Game Music is substantial. VGM focuses on rearrangement of music, sometimes drastically so; often uplifting the source material to previously unrealized heights. So quality VGM is a very special thing - for lovers of video games and instrumental compositions alike. Even more special is the rare occasion...

Nerdy Show Interview: Chamber Band - Time Traveling Through 36 Questions & Governor's Square

Chamber Band have made it their mission to emotionally disarm you while exploring beloved nerd worlds.

Wells' The Time Machine and The Invisible Man. However, in all cases it's best you check your preconceived notions before venturing further. Love, loss, and existential but infinitely relatable quandaries await...

Nerdy Show Interview: Marc With A C Gets Shock Treatment

Before there was "reality TV" there was Shock Treatment - a side-step sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show that confounded fans and slipped in under moviegoers' radars in 1981. No sweet transvestites here, just Brad and Janet trapped in a televised torture chamber that looks eerily like America in the 21st century. The film faded into obscurity, where it would've languished were it not for some die-hard fans, among them the lo-fi musician and familiar voice here on The Nerdy Show...
