On this episodes we break things down into the Good (show renewals), the Bad (show cancellations) and the Unexpected (which is what it sounds like). Listen to and watch us celebrate iZombie, Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD all getting new seasons. Listen to us lament the loss of Constantine… and Helix.
Then we get to Red Dwarf‘s two new upcoming series, a Myst TV show, and a thoroughly unneeded third installment in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight saga.
We also share our thoughts on No Brand Con and read the biggest mailbag in a long while.
Red Dwarf is one of those shows that has managed to be on the air since 1988, never really cancelled, yet only has ten seasons/series under its belt. Every time you think it’s finally faded away, it comes back.
And I love that. Mostly because it’s a really great show.
We’ve been hearing rumors about series XI since 2013, but we finally know when it is happening. According to Radiotimes, the follow-up to 2012’s series X will air on Dave in 2016. Not only that, but we will also be getting series XII in 2017, which is a lot less of a wait.
This fortnight we come to you live from No Brand Con 2014! We talk about a potential return of MST3K, the Agent Carter TV show, Transformers crossing over with Evangelion, the DC carnival of Sadness continuing, Bryan Singer being terrible, Lose Lose… and our listeners are in the room.
On this fortnight’s Nerd & Tie we talk about Red Dwarf series 11 rumors, Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, Pher’s trip to Anime Fusion, Star Wars Episode VII getting a new writer, the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special and the announcement of new iPads.
Also we find ways to talk about Bryan Fuller and Transformers somehow. We’re not sure how we got there either.
