  • Nerdy Show Interview: Marc With A C Gets Shock Treatment

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

    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 Network, Marc With A C.

    In this episode, Marc and Cap share everything you need to know about this hidden gem of b-movie musicals: the actor strike that led to massive changes in the plot, the fandom that re-discovered it, and the weird story of how Marc’s just for fun covers of the songs turned into a beloved piece of the Shock Treatment legacy (now being pressed on vinyl to coincide with the Blu-ray release). We also have a Rocky Horror bombshell to drop as Marc’s journey to license these songs shed some light on the long-rumored, often-denied follow-up film, Revenge of the Old Queen. (more…)

  • Nerdy Show 293 :: Escape from Ape-Catraz

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings!

    Something genuinely strange has happened friends. There was once a age where summer blockbusters were a popcorn-munching escapist’s paradise of awesome stories coupled with dazzling effects. But those days were long past, plots got dumber, and quality films became few and far between… Until now. Against all odds, summer 2017 has hit hard with stellar films. Films that are critically acclaimed, artfully crafted, and explosive in the effects department. In this episode we share our awe and wonderment with Spider-Man Homecoming and War For the Planet of the Apes. But that’s not all.

    Join Cap, boR, Tony, and Brandon as we explore not only our summertime film habits, but the amazing TV we’ve seen too including the new Warren Ellis-penned Castlevania on Netflix, cartoons we’ve caught up on, and other treats from the small screen. Plus: Brandon’s Apes notes he scrawled in the darkened theatre, a few good books, and the Splatoon-fueled debate of cake vs. ice cream. (more…)

  • The Orphans: Facility – Episode II: Error

    In this prequel spin-off of The Orphans, we go deeper into the history of the mysterious facility from Season One.

    The cloning process is well under way, and in the isolation of his solitary posting, Baz turns to the GeoFFRy unit for friendship. After coming face-to-face with the cold-heartedness of the A.I., Baz wonders if perhaps, with a little tweaking, he can make this new GeoFFRy model more sympathetic to human emotions. (more…)

  • Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast :: Episode 22 :: The Horrors of Queen Lich

    Ride with The Lightning Dogs: canines from another world; stranded on a post-apocalyptic Earth. It’s a crazy idea fueled by our favorite 80s pop culture and we’ve been recording our development of it since the moment lightning struck. Join us on our quest to build this world and launch it as an animated series.

    She once was human – but sacrificed her humanity at the alter of science! Queen Lich is the boogeyman of The Wasteland – harvesting the genetic material of unsuspecting peoploids for her sinister experiments… but there’s still so much we don’t know about her. The team brainstorms new takes on this nemesis while Tony devises some accompanying visuals for her action-figure ready, hot-swappable visage. We pull references from some of our favorite eerie corners of pop culture and create for the queen a deeper backstory and truly unsettling cohort.

    But that’s not all! In this episode we go deeper behind the scenes than ever before and take you into the business meeting that changed our intentions for Lightning Dogs completely. (more…)

  • State of the Empire :: Episode 36 :: Rogue One Six Months Later: The Great Anthology Experiment

    State of the Empire is Nerdy Show’s Star Wars speculation podcast where we “look for news in Alderaan places”.

    One of the most exciting things to come from Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was the chance to tell new Star Wars stories on the big screen –  stories beyond the ever-continuing the episodic saga. Films exploring The Old Republic, Boba Fett finally having a chance to really earn that fan following, tales of smugglers, scoundrels, and smarmy aliens – anything is possible. The debut spin-off film, Rogue One, was a ballsy first foray into a bigger cinematic universe; and with that risk came a Hutt-load of trouble.

    Rogue One released to great acclaim and profit, but what hasn’t yet come out is the real story of what went on behind the scenes. In the months following the film’s release, the rumors about drastic, character-reshaping reshoots have become more and more substantiated and fragmented clues about the movie’s original narrative have been scattered like the dust of Alderaan across numerous filmmaker interviews. Was Rogue One a bad film saved at the last minute? A better movie made safer by focus groups? This film’s production is a fascinating untold story, and in this episode we’re assembling all the nuggets of insight we’ve collected.

    Who was Sergent Jyn Erso? Was Krennic ever a competent villain? Who lived and who died between reshoot and release? Will we see more ? and ?? And perhaps biggest of all, what do the struggles of Rogue One and the meltdown of the Han Solo film mean for the future of these experiments in Star Wars filmmaking? (more…)

    Sample forbidden and horrible delicacies and profusely inappropriate renditions of already cringe-worthy TV in Baranbrat’s “Big Bang Theory Gang Bang Orgy“. This… this is gonna suck. And it did. There was LOTS of sucking involved, along with some of the funniest most terrible sexual writing we’ve read this season.

  • Nerdy Show Interview: 40 Years of Cerebus the Aardvark with Gerhard

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

    Cap celebrates 40 years of a comic book milestone: Cerebus the Aardvark. It’s an independent comic that took the world by storm, changed the industry forever, and broke bold new ground with its hilarious and heart-rending story. The series was written and drawn by Dave Sim with background artist, Gerhard. Together they chronicled the life of this ill-fated aardvark with Sim drawing the characters and Gerhard anchoring the cartoon animal into immaculately rendered environments.

    This archival HeroesCon panel is a one-on-one conversation with Gerhard as Cap learns about the artists’ collaborative process in creating the longest-running indie comic of all-time, how to ditch school but still get some book learnin’, and breaking beyond the background with Gerhard’s new project, The Smile of the Absent Cat, written by Grant Morrison for Heavy Metal.
