Episode 021 :: More Than Meets the Eye
Hey Nerds, what do you chee-choo-chee-choo into? A truck? A sports coupe? A microscope? A dinosaur with robot Down’s? No matter what kinda doohickey you’ve got folded up inside you, if you’re more than meets the eye, or a robot in disguise, this episode’s for you.
The Transformers might be reeling with the ill effects of their super-shitty mainstream blockbuster films, but that doesn’t mean that America’s favorite Cybertronians are down for the count – hell no! This past week was the annual Transformers celebration, BotCon and the release of an EPIC Transformers video game, War For Cybertron, that does what no Transformers story has ever done before: chronicle the planet-dividing civil war between Autobots and Decepticons. It’s never the wrong time to show your love for something way cool and nerdy, but even better when the stars align so you can do it right!
In this episode we talk about our favorite incarnations of the Transformers, the glory of the 1986 animated film, and much more – including what secret things Nerdy Show transforms into, and interviews with indie comics cool guy Jeffery Brown author of the astounding Transformers parody Incredible Chang-Bots, and Dr. Vern of sci-fi rock band, Sci-Fried whose music is coming soon to both Nerdapalooza and a similarly-themed major cable network. All that plus SCIENCE and… a girl!?
