Dec 21, 2016

Dec 14, 2016

Dan & Kenton finish up the prequel trilogy with the surprisingly good Revenge of the Sith. If George Lucas had started the prequels with this film, no one would have had any issues with them. 

Dec 10, 2016

Dan & Kenton deal with cameras in the studio for that first time as the Nerds are coming to Shaw TV! Plus, reactions to the Spider-Man Homecoming trailer and a breakdown of the amazing first season of HBO's Westworld.

Dec 7, 2016

In preparation for the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Dan & Kenton continue to watch the prequels that take place before.This week, it's the worst of the Star Wars films (in Dan's opinion) Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. They hate this one almost as much as they hate sand.

Nov 29, 2016

Dan & Kenton force themselves to re-watch Episode I: The Phantom Menace in preparation for Rogue One. Not that this shitty prequel has anything to do with Rogue One. In the end they find that there are some redeeming qualities to what was to many fans a disappointing Star Wars film.

Nov 26, 2016

Nov 24, 2016

As Dan & Kenton wrap up a semester of teaching advertising to first year college students, they reflect on how the industry has changed over the past year. Spoiler alert: there are more geese on bus benches for some reason.

Nov 19, 2016

Lots to talk about this week: a new Rogue One "featurette" that explains what the film is in relation to the original trilogy. An old news story becomes new again. We're up to seven different Rogue One TV spots, and did David Prowse deserve to be the face of Darth Vader as well as the body?

Nov 18, 2016

Dan & Kenton react to last week's second international trailer, wonder when the hell tickets for Rogue One will go on sale, and speculate about a possible Star Wars E.V.A. (gotta listen to find out what it is!)

Nov 12, 2016

Kenton & Dan discuss the latest Star Wars product tie-ins that they've seen on television, debate who Rey's real parents are, and Dan has an epiphany regarding George Lucas and the prequels.

Nov 9, 2016

The Nerds are in complete shock after Donald Trump's upset win of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. They were so sure Hillary would win! What does this all mean for Americans, Canadians, the world? They're not sure, but the next four years are not going to be pretty.

Nov 8, 2016

Dan & Kenton reflect on the last 18 months of U.S, election shenaniganery, analyze the media's role in the whole thing, and offer up a prediction on the outcome of #Election2016. Trump or Hillary? You've got to listen to find out!
