The Surly Nerd Crew
This week the inmates have taken over the asylum and the results are quite alarming. J has been released from his time in the Phantom Zone, but now he must be subjected to Tony’s inane ramblings. The guys try to keep with the normal levels, Comics, Video Games, and Entertainment, but that quickly gets tossed aside. We hope you enjoy this break from the normal Surly Nerd episodes. We had a blast making this one for you.
