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 this...

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...

UNT 25: Iron Fist review / Defenders preview

Sorry, kids… life sometimes gets in the way. Despite circumstances beyond our control interrupting our plans for a Planet of the Apes Trilogy show, we here at Unfunny Nerd Tangent refused to deny you guys an episode, so Episode 25 became an impromptu review of the Marvel Netflix series Iron Fist, with a preview of things to come in the forthcoming Defenders mini-series. So please enjoy our detour to K’un-Lun as we delve into what many critics saw as Marvel’s first serious misstep, while we...

GLOW: a new Netflix series based not only on wrestling, but women’s wrestling in the 1980s? Of course we’d do a show about it. How could we not? The UNT team climbs the turnbuckle, slaps on the glitter and tightens our weaves, as we review and rate the highs and lows of GLOW’s first season, pondering how it compares to such classics as Seinfeld, Cheers and MASH, all the while asking the now-immortal question: is Mark Maron even really acting? Oh, and of course, #UNTpunch. Hosted by:...

UNT 23: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Listen up, True Believers, because we have a web-slinging, wallcrawler of a show for you. With the release of the new (re rebooted) Spider-Man film, Homecoming, how could we not devote an UNT to the world’s friendliest neighborhood hero? We delve into the new Marvel / Sony film, including the terrific performances by both Tom Holland and newly crowned ‘Lord of the Wings’ Michael Keaton; lament the decade-old trend in Hollywood of “X is not the character you think. Really, they’re not, we...

UNT 22: Transformers

Has Michael Bay’s tyrannical, Unicron-like grip on the live-action Transformers universe finally come to an end? God, we hope so. In this episode of Unfunny Nerd Tangent, rather than complain for two hours about the current state of Transformers movies, we instead decided to incorporate all of our favorite things from the franchise, dating back to 1984, including the G1 cartoon, the toys, the comics and the classic 1986 animated movie. We even recruited some expert guests to help us! But...

UNT 21: Split & Unbreakable

Finally, we give you, the listeners, the show you voted for – our review of the M. Night Shymalan movies, Spilt and Unbreakable. Along with Greig, Jared and Bryan discuss both films and Shymalan in general, before looking forward at his next now-highly-anticipated film, Glass. M. Night is a polarising filmmaker, and this podcast certainly had various degrees of opinion. We may have even accidentally stumbled on a potential spoiler for the future. What a twist! Hosted by: ‘Captain...

UNT 20: Wonder Woman

It’s a man’s world, but it took a woman to put the DCEU back on track. And not just any woman… Wonder Woman. The UNT crew wrapped themselves in the Lasso of Hestia just for this podcast, so you know our opinions came from a place of truth. Or maybe it was the lie detector. Either way, something to do with William Marston. So step aside, Bruce, go back to the drawing board, Clark, because it seems like Diana is here to stay. Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13)....

UNT 19: The Lego Batman Movie

Well, we finally gave in. Jared and Greig decided to (hesitantly) placate Tim’s inner orphan and not only watch The Batman Lego Movie, but review it for you… (best Bane voice) “the people”. Three is definitely the loneliest number on this episode, as the guys start to the man in the mirror, ponder the fact that Condiment Man is indeed a real villain, and try to explain to Greig just what master-building is. (It’s not as dirty as it sounds.) So, suit up, grow an extra ab, pick up that...

UNT 18: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

A new, legendary turd of a podcast spanning the reaches of the known Skype universe, Episode 18 of Unfunny Nerd Tangent tackles the intergalactic craziness and all-round Ego-tistical new movie: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Greig gloats about seeing the movie two weeks before everyone else, Tim gets uncharacteristically fiery, Flaux wonders why the hell she came back on this trainwreck to of all things, discuss the best Dairy Queen locales, and while Adam pops in via the wonders of...

UNT 17: A Fast & Furious Franchise

“I live my life a quarter mile at a time.” Pink slips are on the line as our bromantic love triangle revisits the Fast & Furious franchise, culmin8ing with a deep dive on the l8est installment, 8 Fast 8 Furious. If you haven’t seen this movie with a Dbox motion seat and a paper-plate steering wheel, have you really seen it at all? Jared and Bryan rebuild a Mazda rotary engine, Tim gets his UnderArmour in a bunch trying to teach the true meaning of Ludacrismas, and The Rock looks to us for...

UNT 16: The Princess Bride

“Inconceivable!” We’re not sure that word means what we think it means, but nevertheless, we decided to record a whole show about The Princess Bride, and the results are only mostly unfunny, nothing one of Miracle Max’s pills can’t fix. Darrell professes his undying love for his favorite Aussie, Jared sticks to podcast recording kayfabe, Greig gives new meaning to ROUS, and Tim laments his lack of fencing skills. We even dared to recast the movie for our very own remake. Just like Rob...

UNT 15 Wayne's World 25th Anniversary

Schwing! 25 years have passed since Wayne and Garth first graced the silver screen, so what better topic for our band of unfunny nerds to tackle than Wayne’s World? Alice Cooper's historical insights, Robe Lowe's baggy suits, the Grand-Daddy of all #jaredjokes, babes-a-plenty and of course, a dead dad's boner. Check it out, it’s the most informative, totally amazing and excellent podcast ever made… NOT! Hosted by: Tim Agne (@timagne) Featuring: 'SuperJew' Jared Robinovitz (@Superjew75),...

UNT 14: Kong Skull Island

It’s King Kong, but not as you know it. For our latest episode, Jared, Tim and Greig delve into the reboot/prequel/remake that is Kong: Skull Island. Our trio of unfunny nerds dissect and discuss the ramifications of a proposed MonsterVerse, query how the filmmakers were able to assemble such a stellar cast, and while Jared & Greig proclaim their love for Brie Larson’s tank top, Tim finds a way to empathise with Taylor Swift. Yeah. That happened. And stay tuned, as in true UNT style, the...
