“SKOTUS” INTERVIEW WITH ROB WOLINSKY

April 12th, 2019

The Nerds talked with Rob Wolinsky about his project "SKOTUS": Serial Killer of the United States. Rob is a funny guy and we had a blast talking to him, but probably ended up on some sort of watch list. We talk about his inspiration, his process, and goals for the comic. 

You can follow Rob on Twitter or head over to one of his websites: Www.SKOTUScomic.com Www.RobWolinsky.com

**DISCLAIMER** we recorded this episode about a month ago, while the Kickstarter was still running. However issues with audio in the episode delayed the release. I apologize to Rob, for not being able to get it out sooner. The good thing is, that the Kickstarter campaign was successful, and SKOTUS was funded. 

“The Twilight Zone” (2019) Episode Reviews #1

April 8th, 2019

 

Today we review two episodes of the rebooted series "The Twilight Zone" (2019).

First we reviewed episode 1 "The Comedian" starring Kumail Nanjiani & Tracy Morgan. 

Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) stars as Samir Wassan, a comedian who fails to make his audience laugh. That is, until he meets an enigmatic and legendary comic, played by Tracy Morgan, who offers him some "helpful" tips. 

Then we took a look at episode 2, "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet" starring Adam Scott. 

Adam Scott stars as Justin Sanderson, a famous investigative journalist, who is recovering from a nervous breakdown who is on a flight which turns out to be doomed. This is story is a re-imagining of one of the most famous Twilight Zone classic episodes.

Demon Knight (1995) - LOST NICK EPISODE

October 31st, 2018

Today I am re-uploading the lost episode of Nick and I reviewing Demon Knight. Nick has been gone for a year, and it feels like its so much longer than that. I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it with Nick. 

This was originally the 2nd episode of Nerds from the Crypt. Way before we had our proper theme song and when we were still trying to get used to podcasting.  I hope you all enjoy this episode. 

P.S. I tried recording an intro for this episode but I had numerous tech issues. Which is funny, cause we always played that Nick would haunt us by causing tech issues to annoy us.
