In Case You Missed It

Ben Wyatt is the resident nerd on NBC’s Parks & Recreation.  This week he told us why Game of Thrones couldn’t get cancelled, and then he bought a Batman costume. It was pretty much the coolest thing he’s done so far.

Matt Smith Wins Best Sci Fi Actor


Last night Spike TV held its annual Scream Awards, like the Golden Globes, but for Spike TV fans. Matt Smith won Best Sci Fi Actor for his portrayal of the 11th Doctor, over Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Chris Evans. Doctor Who lost Best TV Show to Game of Thrones, and Karen Gillan lost Best Actress to Milla Jovovich of Resident Evil: Afterlife.

The show doesn’t air until Tuesday, however Spike has all the winners listed here.

Congratulations, Matt Smith!

The Big Question


This week in the podcast I asked the nerds a big question. If they could go anywhere in time and space, where would they go and why?

We heard their answers, and now we want to hear from you!  Leave a note in the comments, we’d love to know where you would go!

Remember, the possibilities are endless, so go wild!

What Should We Talk About?

Hey, friends! We hope you enjoyed our first podcast! We’re recording the next one tomorrow and would love to know if there’s anything you’d like us to talk about.  We’ve got a pretty good list of topics so far, as well as a pretty amazing Big Question, if I do say so myself.

So far we’ve been asked to talk about the Walking Dead, which starts again on Sunday on AMC. Are you as excited as I am? Zombies!

In the meantime, check out the fan-made opening titles for the show created by animator Daniel Kanemoto.

I’ll be honest, I like these titles better than the official ones. Maybe that’s just me.

If you have a topic you’d like to hear us discuss this week, leave it in the comments below!

Are you team pie or team cake?

Pumpple Cake, the pie-cake hybrid

It’s the age old question; which is better, pie or cake?  Ok, maybe it’s not that old of a question, but it’s important and it’s just one of our topics of conversation in the podcast this week. Where do you land on this issue?

Snuff Box Finally Hits the US

Rich Fulcher & Matt Berry

Are you ready to have your world rocked by comedy? If you answered yes, I’ve got just the show for you. In 2006 the UK aired one of the most bizarre shows ever put on tape. It’s called Snuff Box and stars Matt Berry (IT Crowd, Mighty Boosh) and Rich Fulcher (Mighty Boosh), who play a hangman and the hangman’s assistant, respectively. The format is where it can get a little confusing. It’s a mix of sketches and story, but it’s not a straight sketch show or sitcom.

The first thing you should know about Snuff Box is that it’s not for everyone. The characters aren’t likable, the sketches are pretty vulgar, and sometimes you’ll wonder how any of this ever made it to air. This is definitely not a show to watch with your kids, or your parents, or the friends you don’t know too well. It could get weird.

Snuff Box is out on DVD in the US today for the first time, but it’s not available on Netflix, so how do you know if you’ll like it before you buy it? If you like the style of South Park, Stella or Mighty Boosh, you should check out Snuff Box.

While some aspects of the show are completely off the wall, others are quite mainstream. Rich Fulcher’s Rapper With A Baby song, for example, has a pretty broad appeal. (NSFW though, F-Bombs ahead)
