  4. Nerdy Show Review: Justice League – Spoiler Free

    When The Nerdy Show Network’flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

    Of all the crazy gambles in superhero cinema, Justice League is the biggest. With DC/ Warner Brothers’ spotty track record for their cinematic universe… there’s no way this ensemble film of largely undeveloped characters could work, right? We’re glad we didn’t put money on this one because Justice League has absolutely flipped expectations and re-writes the book on what’s possible for the future of DC heroes in cinema.

    Join Cap for a spoiler-free exploration of how this film handles introducing some of DC’s most iconic characters to the big screen, where it falls in the landscape of superhero movies, where it falters, and how it succeeds against all odds. And yeah, if you want to go deeper, we’ve got a little bit of spoilery chat safely tucked away after the credits. Booyah. (more…)

Ben Edlund has returned to his cyan creation with the incomparable Peter Serafinowicz in the title role alongside a cast of up-and-comers. Join Cap, Tony, and Doug as we celebrate the Ticks that have come before and discuss the finer points of what this new spin on an old favorite does differently. In this spoiler-free review, learn how the show has evolved past the pilot that was released last year and what a darker, more story-driven series can do for comedy and classic Tick stories that prior shows couldn’t.

  7. Bill Nye Saves the World?: A Review

    This is not an article I wanted to write.

    This weekend I watched all 13 episodes of the new Netflix series, Bill Nye Saves the World. And there’s only one word to describe my mood: disappointed.

    I probably don’t need to tell you about my love for Bill Nye. If you’ve listened to anything I’ve said here on Nerdy Show, you know it runs deep. Bill helped develop my love of science. He showed me that science could be “cool” and I could be “cool” for liking it. Bill Nye the Science Guy is a major reason I became an engineer.

    So I was excited for his new show. I really, truly was. But Bill Nye Saves the World is not a reincarnation of the television show that ignited my love of science. At best, it’s an awkward attempt at cashing in on childhood nostalgia. It’s a show that has no idea what it is and who it’s for. Is it meant to teach people more about complex scientific principles? Or is it more of a science-y Daily Show with correspondents mocking creationists and conspiracy theorists?

    After 13 episodes, I’m still no closer to an answer.

  9. Spoiler-Free Review: Bounty Volume 1

    The Breakdown

    Rat Queens creator Kurtis Wiebe partners with artist Mindy Lee on the sci-fi action comic Bounty. Volume 1 collects issues #1-5 of the series, published by Dark Horse Comics.

    Elevator Pitch

    High-tech hacking, high-stakes bounties in a space opera for the ages. Bounty stands in a class of it’s own, but for the sake of giving some context: it’s Cowboy Bebop given a visual restyling à la Fifth Element.

    The Verdict

    Bounty is a beguiling, multi-layered masterpiece. The team’s quirky camaraderie, witty dialogue, and Lee’s Bruce Timm-esque art style makes Bounty a book you’ll be unable to put down. It’s a crucial addition to any comic fan’s bookshelf.

  10. Review: American Gods: Shadows #1

    The Breakdown

    Writer P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman’s beloved novel American Gods in comic form. Art by Scott Hampton. Published by Dark Horse Comics.

    Elevator Pitch

    Mythology and realism collide as the gods of old and new battle for the worship of mortals. Gaiman’s tale is a classic, drawing you in and refusing to let you go until you’ve consumed the last page. American Gods: Shadows #1 will leave you yearning for more.

    The Verdict

    Whether you’ve read American Gods or not, American Gods: Shadows #1 proves to be just as captivating as the novel. Hampton’s art is dark and gritty, perfectly matching the tone of the original’s tone. This eerie adaptation is a must-read.
