    UNT 99: Independence Day

    UNT 99: Independence Day

    Hello and… Welcome to Earth! Since it’s the 4th of July, of course we gathered together one American, one Canadian and one Australian to sit down and talk about the 1996 blockbuster: Independence Day.
    Through the magic of international time-zones and Morse code, we each setup a city-sized spacecraft of our own to dissect and analyse this mammoth movie that not only made Will Smith a genuine, big-time action-hero, but gave us the phenomenon forever known as - PEAK GOLDBLUM.
    24 years later, ID4 is still regarded as one of the best of its genre, and we endeavored to learn why, while one of us finally learned the actual name of one of its more prominent characters. Constance? Really?
    So kick the tires and light the fires, Big Daddy – it’s Unfunny Nerd Tangent 99: Independence Day.
    Also, is that Data from Star Trek? (Spoilers, it is.)

    UNT 98: Rick & Morty Season 4

    UNT 98: Rick & Morty Season 4

    It’s been two years, but Rick & Morty is back!
    Season 4 has already passed us by like Reggie in the night, but we were determined not to get off the Story Train until we spoke all about it (and pretend podcasts aren’t boring).
    We broke through the meta continuity walls on this particular episode, filled with face-huggers, Beth clones, Jesus Christ, but most importantly… snake jazz.
    So, restart from your latest save spot and check it out, because no one is shopping with this f**king virus!

    UNT 97: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    UNT 97: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    Shave and a haircut... two bits! Just like the toons, you won't be able to resist our latest episode, as we do a deep dive on a cinematic classic: Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
    In 1988, a crazy movie was released that blended the line between live-action and animation, and yet… all we remember are those burning, red eyes and that high-pitched, squeaky voice. Oh, and Roger Rabbit. And Jessica. Mostly Jessica.
    This episode welcomes back Mike Seibert from the Mike Seibert Radio Show (and our Metallica episode) to reminisce about this landmark movie that has influenced filmmakers and animators ever since. Not to mention, our standard, tangential ways lead us down several dip-covered streets, including how Heidi Klum convinced all men that they actually don’t want a real-life Jessica, how Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy and Paul Reubens missed out on this film, bad rabbit costumes and several Back to the Future connections.
    And of course… nightmare fuel. Lots and lots of nightmare fuel.

    UNT 96: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

    We're cashing in a 1-Up for the 10th anniversary of an over-the-top nerd classic that should have collected way more coins: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World!

    We are Unfunny Nerd Tangent! 1-2-3-4!
    We'll take you for a ride / on Tim's favorite film / Oh no,
    We're up in Toronto / 'cause it's Scott Pilgrim,
    By Edgar Wright / the guy who did Hot Fuzz,
    You know you want to fight / Every EVIL EX,
    EX! EX! EX!
    The cast is killer though / like Michael Cera and Ellen Wong from Glow,
    Oh-oh-oh-oh,
    It's got some s****y bands / a whole bunch of video games / and Chris Evans / before he was Cap,
    Jared thinks it's crap / and he can f--k off / and maybe read the books,
    Mary Elizabeth Winstead / She's in a bunch of stuff / Why isn't she a star, star?
    And then we ramble away / like every other day / so buy a shirt and push play ...

    UNT 95: Star Trek: Picard

    UNT 95: Star Trek: Picard

    Unfunny Nerd Tangent, the final frontier… This time, we went where no one has gone before and reviewed the latest entry into sci-fi lore… Star Trek: Picard.
    With Tim and Jared busy on Mount Seleya, long time Star Wars aficionado, Flo spills the beans on her recent two-year binge of everything Star Trek. Caleb from the Autopod Decepticast (and our recent Metallica episode) returns to wax poetic about all things TNG and special guest, Chris Clow from The Comic Binge and Discovery Debrief podcasts gets trapped in the Delta Quadrant with us, as we broke down the good and the bad of Patrick Stewart’s return to the Captain’s chair.
    Personally, we rate this one a Seven (of Nine), so take a seat (like Riker) and check it out before Q returns to smite us.

    Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).
    Featuring: ‘Number One’ Flo (@glitbiter), 'Emergency Hologram' Caleb Carter (@ApodDcast / @cwcarter725).
    Special Guest: 'Admiral' Chris Clow (@chrisclow / @DSCDebrief/ @bingecomic).

More like unfunny trash

This is one of the worst podcasts I've ever listened to. Just a bunch of unfunny losers who clearly never left their parents' basement.

Would highly recommend. 6 stars if they record in Japan

C-wagon78 ,

Sooo much fun!!!

Each episode is always rock solid!! There are always different view points to spice up the conversation on a vast variety of great topics. The hosts pick movies, tv series, and movie franchises to discuss and dissect. Highly recommend for a great cast of guys being highly entertaining talking about things nerdy!!
