With 2018 before us, we are breaking in the new year happy and hopeful for the pop culture to come!
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! This is a very special “one off” bonus episode, all about what’s got us HYPED for being nerds in 2018.
Join us for our our first episode of the year and GET HYPED!
Nintendo, Community, and the Arrow
Even Ollie is shocked at the DC Comics News
It’s time once again to traverse some dungeons, maybe slay some dragons and if nothing else we will spend an hour or so just talking about nerdy news. We jump into this week with Tony finally finishing the game he’s been working on for two years, we can’t get Firefly back yet but the Community community has helped get Community back to all of us. Nintendo comes back on the radar as well, while they try and figure out what the hell they are still doing with themselves and Arrow comes to the forefront of comics and television by melding both worlds. Come and geek out with us as we talk about all the nerdy news your nostrils (and ears) need and don’t forget to send us your summer fun time pictures with your #nerdventure hashtag! (Music selection this week, brought to you by James)
