However, the show honors many of our past guests by including a look back at several Fourth Chair Carryover Questions from the past year. Find out who never watched Saturday Morning cartoons, who doesn't like Seth Rogen, who (sort of) ran a 5K to save the Clock Tower, who watched the royal wedding and who likes Foofur a bit too much. Also...who is 'Saint Cosplay'? All that and more! With this episode, we end "season 2" of the show and we'll be taking a slight break before returning with episode 101.

    Only one show left until episode 100, but we're bringing the fun this week by bringing back long-absent guest Jay from After apologizing to Jay for not having him on for so long, he forgives us by giving us the greatest Nerd Lunch rap you'll ever hear. It's worth turning the show off after that, but don't! We then move into a return to our "Expendables of Other Genres" topic once before covered on Episode 22 of our show. The podcasting crew assemble an ultimate nerdy/geeky/techie movie cast as well as the ultimate cartoon voice cast. It's our most copyright-infringing episode yet!

    CT, Jeeg, and Pax get a dose of culture this week with a visit from Sue London, author of Trials of Artemis (The Haberdashers Book One). After getting the lowdon on what Sue has been doing and what she will be doing, the four of them discuss various couples in the nerd genres including power couples, mismatched couples, married couples, and love triangles. The romance discussion ends with an exercise in "create-a-romance" where The Matrix's Trinity sees a lot of action.

    This week CT, Jeeg and Pax are joined by show regular Shawn Robare to discuss the nerdarific book, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

    30/07/2013 Duración: 01h25min

    This week's episode returns us to the starship from our ninth episode. Our food replicators are still broken, but on the plus side we've managed to find some aliens who can add the recipes for 5 condiments to our replicator. We've also encountered the roguish freighter captain Dubba from and The Nosh Show. After learning a bit about Dubba's ice cream expertise, we set out to reach consensus on the sauces, spreads, and dressings we'll take for the remainder of our journey. Unfortunately for us, consensus is about as easy to find a cloaked Romulan Warbird. In our Nerd To-Dos we hear about cell phone upgrades, hatred for Farscape, catching up on Dr. Who crossovers, and basking in the glow of Game of Thrones.

  • Episode 94 - Actual Nerd Lunch

    16/07/2013 Duración: 01h05min

    This week on the Nerd Lunch Podcast, we do something we've never done before--EAT LUNCH! CT and Pax got together in person and were fortunate enough to have regular Fourth Chair guests Shawn Robare and Robert Zerbe join them as well. We talk a bit about the Fake Geek Girls thing and then launch into how our summers are going so far and just chat. We eat, drink and are merry while sitting at 4Rivers Smokehouse in Jacksonville, FL.

    This week, Jeeg, CT and Pax are joined by Brian from Cool and Collected. This episode, CT removes the famous Pop Culture Eraser from "the vault" and we each get to erase from existence 1 thing and 1 person. We get some controversial results from the group as we discuss the future ramifications of erasing things like Jay Leno and The Next Karate Kid from our pop culture landscape. Lots of Nerdy goings on in the To Dos including TV show and movie watching.

  • Episode 92 - Reboot Challenge

    02/07/2013 Duración: 01h29min

    This week on the podcast, Pax and CT welcome two guests once again and find that they've invented the next "peanut butter and chocolate" with returning guests Tim Lybarger and Matt Ringler. After discovering one of the guests is short on originality, CT asks everyone to channel that unoriginality into a reboot challenge. The podcasters then each pick a beloved (and some not so beloved) property and update it for modern audiences. Moving, Burn Notice, and more in the Nerd To-Dos.

  • Second Helping - Star Trek Into Darkness Talk

    29/06/2013 Duración: 21min

    Recently, we had guest Jon Cross from the After Movie Diner on our show and the previous guest, Jeremy from Geek Chunks asked a particularly volatile Fourth Chair Carryover Question. This question turned into a 20 minute discussion about Star Trek, reboots, opinionated fans, "hate," and poutine. (Actually, poutine never came up surprisingly...) We decided to cut that discussion out of the show in an effort to get to the main topic discussion quicker, but it was entertaining enough that you might enjoy listening as a second helping. Warning, there are spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Flight of the Navigator in this. (Actually, Flight of the Navigator never came up...)

  • Episode 91 - G.I. Joe, A Real American Hero Action Figures

    25/06/2013 Duración: 01h22min

    This week on the show, CT and Pax welcome back Shawn Robare of Branded in the 80s and Cult Film Club and new guest Howie Decker of Under Scoop Fire to discuss the G.I. Joe action figure line.

    12/06/2013 Duración: 01h16min

    This week on the show, the Nerd Lunch crew are joined by Fourth Chair guest, Claymation Werewolf where they take a trip down memorylane and relive the glory days of Saturday mornings. No obligations, cartoon lineups on three major networks, and hours upon hours wasted watching cel-painted goodness (and badness). From earliest memories, to favorite shows, to things that might have been canceled too soon, a lot of great shows were covered. Nerd To-Dos include more home improvement reports, animation projects, and summer TV plans.

  • Episode 88 - Listbuster 2.0

    04/06/2013 Duración: 01h24min

    This week we finally take another crack at the Listbuster topic first heard back in Episode 17. In our crosshairs is IGN's list of the Top 25 Action Movies and riding shotgun in the fourth chair is Jon Cross from the After Movie Diner and Dr. Action and The Kick Ass Kid podcast. After a healthy discussion about just what an action movie is, we tear IGN's list to shreds and then reveal our top 10 action movie lists. In our Nerd To-Dos we get the lowdown on the Superman III novelization, a goal to chat with Steve Guttenberg, and a mini review of The Hobbit (hint: it's a long movie).

  • Episode 87 - Ultimate Movie Triple Features

    29/05/2013 Duración: 01h07min

    We welcome Jeremy from Geek Chunks back to the fourth chair this week to put together our ultimate triple features around specific themes. What 3 Schwarzenegger joints, alien invasion movies, or facial hair flicks will make our lists? Indeed, inquiring minds (or maybe just Jeeg) do want to know. In our Nerd To-Dos, we hear about losing the fire for The Walking Dead comic, unpacking old treasures from the garage, and home screenings of The Hobbit and ParaNorman.

  • Episode 86 - Give That Guy Some Work 3

    21/05/2013 Duración: 01h16min

    This week on the show, Pax, Jeeg and CT are joined by improv actor Matt Young to chat at great length about his role as Captain Julius Valentine Baxter on the Improvised Star Trek Podcast. After the Nerd Lunchers get the scoop on the process, history, and Sixpence None the Honor's HIchop! (aka Klingon version of Kiss Me), the podcasters move into another installment of "Give That Guy Some Work." British actors abound this time as the crew comes up with a brand new show you won't be seeing on your TV anytime soon. Nerd To-Dos this week feature Horns by Joe Hill, My Life in Stripes, Fringe, and Arrested Development.

  • Extra Helping - Iron Man 3

    18/05/2013 Duración: 29min

    CT, Jeeg and Pax each made a trip to their local theater and got a chance to see that swanky new Iron Man movie that the kids are talking about these days. Since all three of the Nerds can answer "yes" to the question, "have you seen the latest billion dollar maker?" they decided to spend a few minutes talking about this movie. Fear not fans of disagreement, while most of the comments are positive, there are a few points where the Nerds did not see eye-to-eye. They talk about everything from how Robert Downey, Jr. did in the role again to where they think this franchise is heading. Avengers! Guy Pearce! Armor! Download and listen!

  • Episode 85 - Time Travel Scenarios

    14/05/2013 Duración: 01h18min

    Rondal Scott returns to our fourth chair this week to mull over what to do if we actually had time machines. We discuss a variety of self serving time travel activities: which model time machine would we choose, what movie premieres we’d go back to see, what long lost fast food items we’d want to try, classic toys to pick up, changes we'd make in our personal lives, and it wouldn't be a complete episode without talk of killing Hitler. Our Nerd To-Dos feature the Seduction of the Innocent, The Dark Knight Rises, the 1930s version of King Kong, and birthday related plans to see Iron Man 3.

  • Episode 84 - Summer Nerd To-Dos

    07/05/2013 Duración: 01h24min

    This week's Nerd To-Dos encompass the entire episode. It's a three way dance as Pax, Jeeg, and CT set out their overall to-do lists for this summer. We start off discussing the summer blockbusters we plan to hit in the theater, which will have to wait for Blu-ray, and which aren't of interest at all. We then move on the TV shows we hope to catch up on over the summer. Finally we wrap up the show with other media we're looking forward to, planned nerd outings, and home projects.
