THE COURT OF NERDS EPISODE 77: THIS AIN'T AN AR SCENE, IT'S AN AR-MS RACE

A super-rapper, the RIGHT FIST of justice, the LEFT HAND of gettin’ you and your man’s name on the VIP club-list
— Grip Grand, "Superrapper"

THIS WEEK'S PODCAST COMIN' AT YOUR EARHOLES:

Droo, Emily (the pretty one), and Gregg talk T'Challa gettin' gritty (but not BvS gritty. Probably), Pokemon Go making Augmented Reality a goal for many-a company, and why the words "sexy" and "Oliver Twist" should not ever be in the same sentence.

Emily kicks us off with TV, including Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., hoping that Stephen Amell does American Ninja Warrior shirtless, and for some Odin-forsaken reason, NBC thinks they need to make a "sexy" Oliver Twist.

Droo shares his enviable pull list, including Moon Knight #6, Supergirl #1, Skybourne #1, and Jughead #9.

Gregg covers gaming this week!  We're still talking about Pokemon Go (along with the rest of society), and Sony is talking big about their future in Augmented Reality.  There's also some Mass Effect news which may disappoint some.

And Droo brings us home with movies!  Black Panther will be "grittier" than some of its Marvel predecessors, we won't see our old-school rangers in the Power Rangers reboot, and Droo's heart is broken at the announcement that Michael Kenneth Williams will not be playing Black Manta in Aquaman.

Next week brings the new format for our podcast, so make sure to check it out!

THE COURT OF NERDS EPISODE 76: SHIP IT REAL GOOD

We're back, including long lost Poodle Queen Emily with a shipilicious episode of The Court of Nerds!

Gregg knocks it out of the park with gaming.  No Man's Sky = No Man's Refunds,  Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is awesome so stop whining about it, and people are for some reason surprised that Pokemon Go isn't going to be the biggest thing in the world forever.

Droo steps up to bat (BOOM MORE SPORTS REFERENCES) with books.  Glenn Tartakovsky brings us sweet, sweet seventies justice with CAGE! and we'll soon see some favorites return in Teen Titans Rebirth #1!

Emily, much like in sports, pretends she knows what she's doing and talks movies!  Liam Garrigan has been cast to play King Arthur in the new Transformers movie (yes, you read that right, and no, we don't get it either).  Ben Affleck tweeted a non-spoilery spoiler, and we honor the great Gene Wilder, who is probably now running a charmingly sadistic candy factory in the sky.

Droo is hitting a double and wrapping it up with TV!  He talks Legion, Droo's heart is set a-flutter with some more Riverdale casting news (oh-ho, we see you there, Josie possibility!), a Supergirl stuntwoman makes the American Ninja Warrior course her you-know-what, and with the tease of a Danny Phantom reunion, the Court plays a fun game of "Bring It Back."

 

Court of Nerds Episode 58: the Goatiest

Grant kicks us off with some juicy movie news.  Chris Evans wants to be Cap forever and we're okay with it.   We're getting a Green Lantern trifecta.  And last but not least, Famke Janssen says that she's not Jean Grey because sexism and not because her version of Grey has no place in this particular movie. 

Gregg takes on gaming and tells us about Hearthstone's Whispers of the Old Gods expansion.  Nintendo hints at more mobile projects after the success of Miitomo.  And this year's edition of Call of Duty may be called "Infinite Warfare."  Make sure you get it to add to the 2,948,739,046 other CoD games youve bought.  

Droo tells us all about the tv news.  Kevin Smith's Flash episode is getting rave reviews before hitting airwaves.  Game of Thrones Season Six premiere had a viewership record, losing only to.....itself.  Win/win?  And the Lucifer series is actually getting good reviews from non-comic fans.  

For this episode we were blessed with the seraphic visage of one Handsome Jeff from Vault of Midnight Grand Rapids, who introduced us to two female-protagonist-centric (*GASP*) comics.  To celebrate Alien Day, Aliens: Defiance is being released by Dark Horse Comics.   4 Kids Walk Into a Bank is hilarious and nerdy and makes Handsome Jeff giddy.
